Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation at Montpelier A 501(c)(3) organization
The Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 1983. The TRF herd lives at 18 TRF thoroughbred retirement facilities across the country. 8 of those farms are “TRF Second Chances Program” farms located at state correctional facilities where inmates participate in a vocational training program in equine care and stable management. At Healing Arenas in California, TRF horses are retrained for adoption and work daily in equine assisted therapy. At James Madison’s Montpelier, the farm maintains a maximum of 50 horses with many adoptable for trail and pleasure riding.
Most Thoroughbred rescues retrain and adopt out horses for a fee, but the TRF focuses our primary efforts on horses who are best suited to a life at pasture. Many of these horses are teachers in our correctional facility-based vocational training programs. Through this program incarcerated men and women learn compassion, responsibility, and a useful trade, while the horses receive quality care. The TRF receives no government funding and there are no rules requiring the racing industry to support its retirees. Our Thoroughbreds are 100% dependent on the generosity of donors like you.
Our mission is quite simple:
“To save Thoroughbreds no longer able to compete on the racetrack from possible neglect, abuse and slaughter”
Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) and all donations are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law
