Where are they now?
My Silver Dollar
She does everything in a double jointed hollow loose ring snaffle. She was second after dressage and she finished third and the kids only been competing for a year and it’s her 4th event. I’m just so so so proud of the mare !
Owner: Rae Anne
Meet Sublime Symphony, also known as "Piper". She came off of the Fort Erie Racetrack 8 months ago and has recently turned 6 years old. She has started her new career as a Hunter/Jumper and is loving it! She has such a sweet temperament and is a quick learner. She is in the beginning stages of going consistently round on the flat and jumping a full course.
ET is doing amazing. Never mind his wonderful movement and athleticism, the best thing about him is his sweet steady mind. At his first hunter pace, he was exposed to his first XC jumps and w/t/c in a group on a soft rein the entire time. In a french link snaffle and loose noseband no less! He’s a joy to work with every single day.
Inside Man born march 2015. Got him on September 2018, was just off the track. We started working in December and here's where he got in a few months. I couldn't have hoped for a better horse
A beautiful update from our 2018 Retiree, “ Silent Dance”. He and Emma ( his rider) won the Quebec Eventing Championships this season in the pre-entry open division. What a great team!!
Brixton Hill looking brave as ever with his partner in crime, Lindsay!! He's loving his new life in eventing and you both look the part!
Rock Hard Doll
I adopted “Rock Hard Doll” (Ricky) now named Denali back in February, and I have been in love ever since. The first week she learnt how to stand still, and ever since she never takes a step when being brushed and tacked! She is hands down the most mellow OTTB I have ever met that has come off the track so recently. Our second ride we went WT and she immediately went into a frame, needless to say it brought me to absolute tears! The first time I worked with her on the ground was completely at liberty, she was able to walk across Liverpools, over bridges, without a single tool in hand. She even would trot beside me at Liberty as well!
Cold Ash came off the track 6 months ago and is adjusting to hid new career as an eventer like a superstar. He has the best puppy dog personality and likes to please even when asked to do new things. He is the total package with a great brain and even better looks. We are planning our first event this summer!
Our 2018 retiree “ Miss Trinity “ ! Learning to fly for the show season this year.
“ Coppersmith” aka “ Finley”. Our 2018 Retiree has enjoyed some downtime and is now training over fences and on the flat ! His new owner has described him as her dream horse and the two of them will be heading to the Royal Winter Fair for the Thoroughbred classes next 2020❤️
When I first took Click home with me, I knew I was in for something special. He takes to things with nothing but ease and determination and he is always eager to try new exciting challenges. As a first time horse owner Click has taught me a lot about taking something from nothing and building it into something amazing. Our journey has only begun and things are only going up!
Calvin is absolutely fantastic! He figures things out so quick. He is extremely smart and talented. Racing might not have been his thing but jumping sure is! Does not matter the size of jump, he gives full effort.
Tikal was one of our favorite three year olds!! He is enjoying his new show horse life with the Diana Burnett eventing team and even took the Winter off in Florida. What a spoiled boy! :)
He's getting better and better every day. He's all I've ever dreamed about owning! He is the most kind, good natured horse I've ever been around..and definitely has a heart of old. He loves going for hacks in the fields in woods. Soooo excited to officially get him started in the spring!
I bought Simcoe aka Lake Simcoe, last October and I couldn’t have asked for a better horse. We worked a lot on the basics throughout the winter and he was introduced to jumping and Horseball, which he both loves! He’ll make his Eventing and Horseball debut this season and I can’t wait to see how it goes!
You were right about him having spirit !! I’ve had him almost two years and he’s been the most challenging and also the most rewarding young horse I’ve ever sat on. He’s brave and bold and loves to go for gallops!! Thank you for being a stepping stone in the path to our partnership
Cassandra with Braveman at the Kentucky horse park 2019! this was one of our first retiree's to compete at the Retired Racehorse project. They have some such a long way in just 10 months from when he first left the track.
One of my favorite duos- "Minnow Money" is healing up from a suspensory injury he sustained at the track - he's slowly getting back into work with the fabulous Katie.
I love these two!! our 2017 retiree showing off her moves with Amy in the pilot seat. She jumped around the trillum 2'3 hunters without putting a foot out of place. " A" circuit hunter in the making!
Southern Diva has been off the track a year now. She competed at the 2019 Thoroughbred Makeover , rides with the Battle Creek Hunt and will jump anything you point her at. She has sass but there is nothing she won’t do for you!

I am who I am
"I am who I am, now named Odin, is doing awesome! He is just the most affectionate horse I've ever met. We've recently started jumping and I'm hoping to take him to a couple jumper and mountain trails shows this summer. I've ridden him bitless since his first ride with me and he has been incredible. He is also super fun at liberty and really seems to enjoy clicker training."- Mikaela
"Ultimate Blue" the one eyed wonder, war horse who was a fan favorite at the track! He has found his calling on the Quebec hunter circuit, making waves and winning tons of ribbons with his incredible new owner. I absolutely love watching this pair together!
Seeking a Glitter
"Seeking a Glitter" aka "Glitz" is settling so well into her life as a show horse! Most recently, she was the top placed Thoroughbred and winner in the Thoroughbred Incentive Championships for the Development Hunter Series at Twinholm Trilium show! Way to go guys.
Well.... we did it!! He has recovered so well ♡♡ He honestly is one of the best horses I have ever owned and I want to thank you two for everything you guys did for us! Katie you held him for me until I could come see him and kept everyone that was interested in him away essentially lol you made his forever home with me happen and I am forever so grateful ♡ Stephanie, you took care of my boy and helped us so much with all my questions and even made a trip out to his rehab facility to follow up and you were just so great the whole way through. You are one in a million! I am just so over the moon with how well Chance and I have bonded and I didn't ever think I could love a horse like this again after my pony that I had for 16 years passed away. Chance has made my depression disappear and has been a huge blessing in our lives! ♡♡
Asterism aka Remington has made so many positive changes since Kim took him home. He was a little high strung at first, but has completely relaxed into his new surroundings. The pair have began to form an unbelievable bond and Rem is even ponying her kids around!! such a transformation
"Houdini" the stunning steel grey who lasted less than an hour on my page, looking right at home with his new owner!! Can't wait to see you and Marisa out on the circuit!
