What an exciting and powerful combination – Thoroughbred racehorses and teenage boys!!!  Through the Tulsa Boys’ Home’s new partnership with the Oklahoma Thoroughbred Retirement Program and The Exceller Fund, retired Thoroughbred racehorses continue to work their magic creating incredible breakthroughs helping troubled young boys find healing and hope in a future they never thought possible.

 

Boys at the Tulsa Boy’s Home interact with the horses in a variety of activities.  The horses are an integral part of helping boys with behavioral issues, attention deficit disorder, drug addiction, abuse issues, and depression.  The Tulsa Boys’ Home equine program helps the boys improve their skills in the areas of communication, conflict resolution, teamwork, and positive, healthy relationships.

 

Dah Waterboy and Ton of Gold, who will continue to be owned by The Exceller Fund, are now participants in this teamwork effort of healing.  What outstanding second careers for these two former racehorses!

 

Perhaps you…or maybe a group of your friends or co-workers…would consider sponsoring one of these special horses…just $5.00 a day pays the “salary” for one of these horses to work his magic.  Help a horse help a child!!!
