The Racehorse Reimagined program is an adoption program for transitioning racehorses of any breed or age. The grant pays trainer fees for work with transitioning racehorses either directly off the track, transitioning from a second performance career, retirement or rescue situations.
The horse is matched with an adopter before the training starts.
Training fees for this program are paid at $50 an hour and can be used for ground work, training under saddle or riding lessons.
The grant parameters are:
The adopter is selected and matched with the horse before training begins.
