Taking care of our own doesn’t end when our horses leave the racetrack. We rely on a network of equine professionals who are experienced in the difficult transition from life as a racehorse to a successful new career.
We have an incredibly talented team that specializes in the aftercare, retraining and rehoming of our horses on their farms. These individuals have made it their mission to find Thoroughbreds a second career. Most of our partner farms are non-profit groups, and all of them follow the AAEP Guidelines for Equine Rescue and Retirement Facilities. Becoming a Turning for Home Partner Farm is a huge commitment, so we urge you to remember that rehoming one of our horses is not just about giving plenty of TLC. Our partner farms must be experienced but also willing to learn, be able to handle significant veterinary issues, be able to conduct your own application approvals, and especially to be able to properly interact with potential adopters.
In addition, Turning for Home graduates do occasionally have to re-enter the program, and since part of our policy is that we take care of our own, your farm must be willing and able to take previously-adopted horses back, with no questions asked.
If you are still interested in more information about how to become a partner farm, send us an email, and we will forward over our Farm Packet, which includes an in-depth application and farm contract.
