Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Centre

The Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Centre is the original charity dedicated to the welfare, re-training and re-homing of thoroughbred ex-racehorses.  Established in 1991, the centre is now recognised as a centre of excellence in its field. 

It is estimated that around 5000 horses leave racing and training each year and some of these horses can face an uncertain future.  The TRC takes some of these horses, either directly from racing and training or from post racing private homes.  They undergo a thorough process of re-training and are appropriately re-homed through our loan scheme to homes where they can find a new life and purpose in another equestrian discipline from hacking to eventing.  These horses remain under the ownership of the TRC and as such their welfare is continually monitored for the remainder of their lives.

We are very grateful to the Elise Pilkington Charitable Trust for their support.  We have received grant funding over the last 10 years for various capital projects including assistance in the purchase of our premises Whinney Hill Farm in 2004
