HART for Horses is committed to being the voice for Off-the-Track Thoroughbreds (OTTBs), to finding them their forever homes, and to stewarding a mutual journey of self-discovery for all of our horses and the people that adopt them or interact with them.
Our mission is to rescue and re-home off the track thoroughbreds. We believe that education and outreach will improve the lives of those in our community and the lives of the equine athletes we rescue.
HART is dedicated to preventing the deeply troubling fate some of these horses face after retiring from racing. By fostering new beginnings and second careers for these majestic athletes, we elevate awareness on the versatility these horses possess among the equestrian community. We have aligned with the racing industry’s great efforts toward support of OTTBs so that they have a smooth transition into their second careers and resources to secure their well-being, while they prepare for their forever homes.
We also are committed to our community, especially those individuals needing to fit in or looking for their own personal way to connect with a purpose in life. We have seen first-hand how cultivating the confidence and trust of OTTBs will in turn enlighten us on our own behavior and communication skills that we can incorporate into our daily lives. Patience, understanding, thoughtful and purposeful actions are lessons mutually acquired through these equally wanting relationships.
