TROTT Trains Racehorses Off The Track

Filed under: HorsesAdoptionRescue

TROTT is a non-profit organization that rescues racehorses once they are retired.

Their mission statement said:

"Through rehabilitation and retraining in our professional facilities, we ensure each horse donated to TROTT has the chance to learn the new skills necessary for life as a pleasure or show horse in a non-racing home.

TROTT believes that a horse with an "education," or basic training, has a greater chance to lead a successful life off the racetrack."

Basically, they keep racehorses out of the slaughterhouse.

When a racehorse is retired, it is usually only 2-4 years old; still just a baby.

They train these horses so they'll be prepared to go to a loving home, where they'll be safe and loved.

What a great organization. Check them out HERE if U want to see if U can help.
