Track to Trail Thoroughbreds- rehab, rehoming, and rescue of ex-racehorses

Rehabilitation, rehoming, and retirement of Off Track Thoroughbred Horses We rehabilitate injured ex racehorses OTTBs (Off Track Thoroughbreds) These horses may come from the track- mainly Gulfstream Race Track, but also owner surrender or seized by authorities.

The bulk of what we do is provide care and medical treatment. Horses may be available for adoption once they have healed. Education and Outreach also play a big part in what we do. We have a strong volunteer program. Check our our website for a full list of what we do and our available horses. VISITS FOR ADOPTIONS, CLASSES AND VOLUNTEERING ARE APPT ONLY

Chevy w his night time hay. Huge thanks to volunteers Laura K. Ehrhart and Noreen for filling up the truck w hay and grain today! He’s enjoying the fresh alfalfa!

For all of you that know Chevy - he’s one of our sanctuary horses. This was part way thru his recovery. He came in such awful condition. He’s a sanctuary horses and has been here for many years. His starvation and neglected condition damaged him permanently. We would love to find him a sponsor to help w his ongoing care He’s a total love. His general costs of feed, hay, farrier, supplements l, shavings, is about $500 a month. He could really use ongoing support. You can call in right to the feed store and we can pick everything up. Or you can purchase and bring it to him.

If you can make a one time purchase or a monthly commitment towards his care that would really help him have everything he needs.

Ronald Reagan came to us from Fox Hill Farm where he had been at a vet clinic due to a racing injury. He went to a great home but unfortunately suffered medical issues years later. He was much loved by everyone that knew him. It’s been about a year that he’s been gone. He was such a sweet funny boy. This picture came up in memories today. He was one of the evacuees that came here during the wrath of Hurricane Irma.

Update Quality A Rod
So Caliber did a thing! Sweet baby boy, is not a riding horse, but this week he joined kids Sat camp to hang out w a rider in the sprinkler. This is Ryley who spends an hour every Sat with him, making sure he gets some training and some love! This was his first time w a rider since the track and that’s been maybe 4 years. He did sooooo. Good. Funny thing he was not so sure about the sprinkler! So we walked him over to the bobbing for apples station and now THAT WAS A HIT! He was a bobbing fool! It makes our hearts happy to see these ex racers, especially like Caliber (Quality A Rod) get to have a good life. We have your back sweet boy! Always and forever

Salty Celebration known as Mac, Macaroni and by the kids, Mac and Cheese - is getting his final evaluation by DrRichter the specialist that travels down from Brandon Equine. He’s been on walk/trot only the last few months after having stall rest and small paddock rest for 4 months as he’s been rehabbing from a torn tendon since Feb. (original tear was sometime before Nov but he came to us in Feb w improper rehab and the year and slightly worse than originally occurred ).

He’s a big beautiful dark bay OTTB He’s primarily been in a dresssge program since racing but has worked a bit on cross country - heard he loved the water obstacles. Anyway he’s a great guy and we are optimistic of a good report! This is Student Maddie who has gone sweet on him 💕

Booker - one of the ex race horses that works w the kids. He’s such a good boy. Young thoroughbreds are so easy to teach. So willing! They want a job and love working. Sometimes they are not understood, not given time to learn. That usually ends up w behavioral problems that get worse as they move home to home w more people who don’t understand them. It’s a vicious cycle. Give them time, get a good trainer, but please don’t pass them on and on.

LuJean getting a little exercise w one of the girls Go Baby Go! Almost 7 months of rehab done. 5 to go! One of his biggest issues was a severe deep digital flexor tendon tear. He was completely lame when he came in and we had Dr Harvey out to examine and do an ultrasound. He’s also had PRP therapy He’s had a few since and needed special shoes. Just for that. He’s got a lot of underlying medical issues too but we are keeping positive and just concentrating on moving forward. It’s working! He doesn’t know any other way!
