Each year thousands of horses leave racing, some because they reach the natural end of their career, others through injury, old age or lack of ability. The Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Centre is the original charity dedicated to the welfare, re-training and re-homing of ex-racehorses.
Two qualified SMS saddle fitters from Jaguar Equestrian by Harry Dabbs have recently been working closely with staff at the TRC to develop a range of saddles suitable for the various types of Thoroughbreds. Six new saddles by Harry Dabbs have now been provided to assist the charity and their dedicated team with their retraining programmes .
With funds of around £1500 needed every day to keep the centre running, the charity constantly looks at ways to increase their revenue and raising awareness for the centre.
Kath Pinington(yard manager/trainer at TRC) will be giving a demonstration at Your Horse Live about the assessment process for a new horse arriving at the centre and how they assess the horse for athletic potential in particular its suitability for Eventing. If you are thinking of attending YHL please do go along to see Kath and her team working with these intelligent and graceful horses.
