    A Lifeline
    for those horses

By supporting The Racehorse Sanctuary you will be directly helping us provide a Life After Racing through our Rehabilitation, Retraining and Sanctuary Programmes.

Over 5,000 horses leave the racing industry annually, but sadly, many of them face an uncertain future. The Racehorse Sanctuary provides a lifeline for such horses; as one of the leading organisations working in this field our work is vital to thoroughbred welfare, as we have rehomed hundreds of horses since being established.

About The Sanctuary

It was in 1996 when the great 'Moorcroft Boy' was gifted to Graham that the decision was made by him and Sue create 'The Moorcroft Racehorse Welfare Centre'.

This venture grew rapidly and under their guidance over 100 horses were successfully re-homed during the ten years that followed and a reputation was created that was second to none. On leaving, this charity was on a first class footing and capable of standing on its own two feet.

Here are some of the ways you can help us to help them

  • We aim to give every horse that comes into our care a second chance in life in a loving home. Unfortunately that is not always possible. Horses either a little too-spirited or who simply require specialist attention on a daily basis are unlikely to find a good home and are given Sanctuary. We would never give them up for the world. We don't give up on them - and neither should you. Click here for how you can help
