The Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation is currently in search of caring horsemen and women to provide foster care for some of our many charges who are, for various reasons, no longer able to be ridden. If you love the companionship of Thoroughbreds and have adequate pasture and shelter, you could be in a position to participate in this program.

We always prefer having farms where the horses can be turned out at all times with a run-in shed for shelter. (Exceptions would be if the horse is sick or injured.) TRF is able to pay for veterinary, dental, and farrier care if you are not in a position to do so. Additionally, in return for boarding one or more of these horses, TRF will provide a written acknowledgement of the reasonable expenses incurred over the year.

If you would like to be part of our effort to rescue and care for these wonderful animals and would like more information, please contact Sue Hart at 434-409-4102 or
