Second career


At Racehorse Relief, we believe all ex-racehorses should be given the best chance of a meaningful second career

Competing

Racehorses typically retire from racing with many years ahead of them. Many go on to have a successful second career in the show ring, dressage or eventing. We like to prepare horses with this in mind and find suitable homes that will continue their education in these fields.

Happy Hackers

Not all horses go on to be competitive superstars, some due to previous injuries, age or general attitude prefer the life of a “happy hacker”. We ensure that horses more suited to this way of life find the perfect human to enjoy riding around the countryside with.

Available Horses

Currently we do not have any horses ready for rehoming. But please keep checking back because when horses are ready they will be added to this page.

Loan Process

All our horses are rehomed on a permanent loan basis. Therefore, if for any reason it doesn't work out for you and one of our horses, they will always return to us. This guarantees a worry-free solution for you and a protected retirement for them.

There is a one-off fee of £1,000 and you are required to be a member of Racehorse Relief for the duration of the loan, which is currently £10 per month.  (The one-off donation is non-refundable)

We are able to rehome anywhere within the UK. However, we do recommend visiting us at least once or twice before a final decision is made. We will also need to carry out a home check either ourselves or via a Racehorse Relief representative. This is something to take into consideration if you wish to rehome with us.

Most horses have a 12 stone weight limit, although, for some of the smaller, finer ones, it may be less.

If you are under the age of 18 you will have to ask a parent or guardian to apply on your behalf.

The first thing to do if you are interested in rehoming with us is to fill out our rehoming form.
We ask that you be as open and honest as possible as this gives us the best chance of matching one of our horses to you. There is a lot to consider when matching potential loanees to horses.

Any questions do get in touch.
