Viking Way (Pat) has been given a fantastic forever home with Jessica and her family. Pat has got a special job to do being Jessica’s new best friend. He is the kindest, sweet natured horse we have had and we are delighted that he will get that “one to one” with Jessica. Jessica is planning to do a bit of jumping, showing and hacking with Pat and has already jumped him over poles. We wish them lots fun together.
“Sid” has been given a lovely forever home with Nicola Porter. Nicola has had an ex racehorse before which she sadly lost. She hopes to do ROR and some jumping with Sid. We can’t wait to hear how they get on in the future and we wish them the best of luck.
We are delighted to give you an update on Hooley Time. Ashlie and Hooley have been getting on extremely well together. With a lot of hard work they have been progressing through the cross country ranks and are hoping to do BE100 classes very soon. Thanks to Ashlie for keeping us updated on their progress, we love to hear how amazingly well our rehomed horses are getting on. Have a look at the videos and see how versatile an ex racehorse can be!!
“Blue” has been rehomed. Mark plans to team chase and hunt with him. Hopefully they have a great time together. We wish them the best of luck.
“Tina” has been given a lovely home with Phil Lutman. Phil rides in charity races and their main aim together is the Newmarket Town Plate next year. The race distance of 3 miles 6 furlongs should not be a problem for Tina. We wish them both the best of luck.
Poppy (now called Poppita) just didn’t grow from being a 2yr old. She is a confident, quick learner, nothing fazed her ride and we thought she would be ideal for polo. Poppita has been given an amazing forever home with Ed Alexander Morris. Ed is a very accomplished young polo player having played for GB Junior team. He was looking for a TB for extra speed. Poppita has come along way in a short space of time (they’ve only been together since end of August 2018) She has been playing chukka’s (practice matches) and Ed has been extremely pleased with her. He is hoping to play her in matches soon and we can’t wait to go and watch them play. We wish you both lots of luck.
One year on and we went to watch Poppita play in her second polo match. It’s amazing to see how far they have come together in a short space of time. Ed is extremely pleased with how quickly she has adapted to her new job and just highlights how great ex racehorses can be.
Hooley has been given a fantastic forever home with Ashlie Hubbard. Hooley is a fantastic jumper and we wanted her to go to someone who would further develop her natural skill. Together they’ve been doing lots of show jumping and cross country. Ashlie has now registered them to go BE and is excited to start the eventing ladder this summer. They done their first ODE competition last month and got on extremely well. A great partnership and we wish you both lots of luck for the future.
Chunk (stable name) was always the kindest, sweetest horse. Unfortunately he was a bleeder so was retired from racing. We are really happy that he has been given a lovely forever home with Emily-Jane. He has settled in really well and even has Emily-Jane’s partner devoted to him as well!! (Smart move Chunk) Together they plan to go showjumping, dressage and cross country. A busy summer planned out already. We wish you both lots of luck.
Copa has got a fantastic forever home with Julie Swift. Julie already has a few TB’s so is experienced and has given him time to mature. He’s had time out in the paddock with her other horses and has been enjoying his break. He has just come into work and I’m sure he will enjoy his new vocation. We wish you both lots of luck.
We believe that every owner and trainer has a responsibility to find a racehorse the right home after it's racing career. Every horse is different and some racehorses can be very challenging which is why we pride ourselves on finding the right home for the right horse.
Owning or retraining a racehorse can be very rewarding, however it is very important that you have the relevant experience to take on a racehorse. If you are interested in owning an ex-racehorse then you should first speak to the experts. Below are a few links to help you.
