Thoroughbred Makeover

Dates: 
Friday, October 28, 2016 - 8:00am to Sunday, October 30, 2016 - 5:00pm
Event Description: 

They say you cannot teach an old dog new tricks, but what about an old horse? The Thoroughbred Makeover is proof that this age old saying does not apply to the horse world. This event is a great opportunity to see some retired race horses showing off their "new tricks." There are around 350 Thoroughbreds training for this event, each horse with the option to compete in up to two of ten different riding disciplines. Come on out to the Covered Arena and see these Thoroughbreds in action.

The event is put on by the Retired Racehorse Program, and organization dedicated to building further careers for retired Thoroughbred race horses. The purpose is to promote the usefulness of these retired Thoroughbreds, who may otherwise be disregarded after their racing days are over. Thoroughbred Makeover is one of the program's most important events, due to the fact that it showcases the versatility and unique capabilities that are often overlooked with these horses. For more information, or if you would like to support their program, you can visit their website at https://www.retiredracehorseproject.org/ or send an email to steuart@retiredracehorseproject.org.
