An “off-the-track Thoroughbred” can find a place in a second career as “easy as apple pie.” From the beauty of dressage to the fast-paced sport of hunter/jumper, these fascinating equines are extremely successful in many different disciplines! On April 14, 2012 at the lovely Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, the Thoroughbred Horse Show Association held its first horse show introducing many talented off-the-track Thoroughbred’s who are registered with The Jockey Club. The Exceller Fund was honored to be a volunteer for this first event and voices its support for keeping these horses alert and active in a career after racing has ended. The Thoroughbred Horse Show Association allowed fans of these majestic horses to see “up close and personal” just how talented they can be in the fields of combined training, trail riding, and competitive hunting.

The Exceller Fund also feels it is most worthy to note that these OTTB’s are extremely successful as schooling horses for those learning to ride, as therapy horses for special-needs populations, as a pasture pal for older horses, as English and Western pleasure horses for those who compete in the show ring, and as forever friends to those who simply love them.
