Thank you for considering giving a rescued horse a new life.
Thoroughbreds are beautiful, intelligent, fast and have the desire to please. Sadly, most of their racing careers are over at age three or four. Some of our rescues are retired from racing due to an injury, some are simply not fast enough to compete on the track. They’re out, but they’re not done: they can excel in other areas and are waiting for their forever home.
JC Mel Beach has been returned to the rescue due to no fault of his own. He was well cared for and adored by his former adopter. Mel Beach is available for adoption. He is 16h. He loves trail rides; no jumping.
Blake came to us with grace from a neglectful situation. A family saw Blake at auction and we’re saddened by her condition. They purchased her and reached out to PRR. Victor drove round trip to Fort Myers to pick them up. Blake has transformed into a stunning lady. Unfortunately, the vet discovered she has a kissing spine and won’t be ridable. She will be great companion horse or could be train to pull a cart.
Cabbage Patch better known as Daisy is a 1997 TB that has the heart of a 3 year old. This lady has been through so much, she’s tough as nails. She is sound and is now retired. She would be an amazing pasture pal.
Thor is a 2009 OTTB available for adoption. He is a little over 15h and great on trails. Thor will need an advanced, confident rider. He has had good training but he is more go than whoa. Thor is a sweet natured boy who loves his humans and other horses.
