Queen of Hearts Thoroughbred Retirement Farm

The horses love attention, and volunteers are welcome to brush them and spend time with them. If you are experienced rider, there are horses who need exercise and training. Of course we always need and appreciate stall muckers and anyone willing to help with general farm labor and maintenance.

Also need volunteers for fundraising, grant writing and organizational duties.

Mission Statement

Our Mission is to provide a safe place for thoroughbreds to go after their racing days are over. When a thoroughbred's career is over, he often needs to be relocated quickly. By providing a safe haven, these horses will have a place to go. The horses will be rested, rehabilitated and retrained for new careers as show horses, eventing horses, trail horses, pleasure horses or simply companion horses. Those whose injuries or temperments prevent them from finding a suitable new home will be given sanctuary here at the farm.

Description

QHTR currently provides sanctuary for ten thoroughbreds. We are hoping to expand the facility in order to take in more at risk thoroughbreds who will be rehabilitated, retrained, and eligible for adoption to carefully screened applicants. With further expansion, we also hope to be able to offer sanctuary to more horses who have nowhere else to go. Most horses come to us directly from the raceterack, but once we have a quarantine barn we will be able to expand our efforts to rescue horses from auctions.
