Hidden Acres Rescue for Thoroughbreds (HART) works hand-in-hand with our partners in the horse racing industry to provide a safe place for former racehorses to rest, rehabilitate, and retrain for new careers. While a Thoroughbred's racing career is often short, these young and athletic horses have plenty more to offer the world.
At HART, horses are prepared for a new home and career, whether they have recently retired from the racetrack or been found in need of interim care.

Horses for Adoption
At HART we go to great lengths to ensure that our adoptees and adopters are a perfect match. All of our horses up for adoption have been evaluated by our trainers and veterinarians to determine riding suitability. We do our best to match each horse with the adopter's riding ability and goals.
One of the best kept secrets at HART is our lesson program! Our trainers believe in the philosophy of natural horsemanship training for the safety and benefit of both the horse and rider.
How to Help
The day to day operation of HART is both expensive and very labor intensive. In order to help satisfy the daily operating needs we accept support in a variety of ways.
