PASTURES NEW is a registered charity (no. 1147630) dedicated to the rehabilitation, retraining and re-homing of retired and injured racehorses.
Many horses finish racing every year in the UK. What to do with a racehorse bought with such promise, and at considerable cost, has become a dilemma for owners who care about their horses. Thoroughbreds need to be retrained in the simple practice of riding and learn to bend and balance, getting used to legs down each side whilst wearing a full size saddle and possibly carrying a weightier rider.
The prospects for ex racehorses without this retraining can be bleak, as their purpose has expired. Here at Pastures New we strive to achieve a useful future for every horse, be it as a "happy hacker" or something more befitting of their fantastic pedigree, such as in dressage, polo, eventing or show jumping.
In the right hands and with the right training there are no limits to what we can achieve.
Please help us to help them.
