Thoroughbred Retirement, Retraining and Adoption
like people, come in all shapes and sizes, and each has a unique
personality. All horses offered for adoption by Tranquility Farm have
been rested, restored, and retrained after racing. Some have come to us
as babies or broodmares. Whatever their history, each horse’s physical
and mental capabilities have been evaluated by veterinarians and
trainers before they are offered for adoption.
Most often, a fit
and experienced rider, teen to adult, is most successful in schooling a
young thoroughbred. Horses do receive some basic training before
leaving Tranquility, but they will have much to learn about their new
rider’s environment and expectations. Our Thoroughbreds have had few
experiences other than the racetrack and horse farm, and they do best
with a steady, patient rider in an arena-based program.
Farm’s horses are evaluated individually with adoption fees that range
from optional donation to low market value, depending on the age and
future potential of the horse. A trial period of 30 days is offered
with full refund of fees provided the horse is returned in good health
and condition. Special consideration is given to non-profit
organizations seeking horses for their programs, 4-H and US Pony Club
Some horses at Tranquility Farm are pasture sound only, but
they have loving personalities and greatly enjoy the friendship of
people and other horses. These make wonderful companion horses,
babysitters, and pets. There is no adoption fee for providing a home
for a pasture pal; all that is required is other equine company,
references, and a warm heart.
