Established in 1991, The Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Centre was the UK’s first charity dedicated to ex-racehorse welfare, retraining, rehoming and protection for life. To celebrate the charity’s 25th anniversary in 2016 TRC evolved and became The British Thoroughbred Retraining Centre. The BTRC is a Centre of Excellence, not only for the retraining of thoroughbreds, but also as an education centre to ensure best practice is maintained in this ever increasingly popular area of the equestrian pleasure industry. At the BTRC we aim to help as many horses as possible each year to be rehomed, these horses either come straight from the racing industry or pre-trained equestrian homes that for many reasons can no longer cope or care for the horse.

 

The horses then enter into the loan programme and are matched with suitable loaners, but all horses remain under BTRC ownership for the rest of its life. Over the years the BTRC has re-homed hundreds of horses where they continue to lead appropriate post-racing careers ranging from hacking and leisure riding to competitive disciplines. Although we receive a small amount of industry funding from Retraining of Racehorses, the majority of our income is sourced through public donations, Friends of the BTRC and legacies.

  • Mucking out
