Such is the demand for places at The Racehorse Sanctuary that we operate a fostering scheme to ease the pressures on our waiting list.

Healthy well adjusted horses are fostered with knowledgeable supporters, until space becomes available on one of our retraining programmes or a new permanent home can be found for them.

Do you own a horse or have experience of owning thoroughbreds, if so would you consider fostering an ex-racehorse, helping to give them a fresh start and A Life After Racing.

The Sanctuary is looking for experienced handlers willing to foster a horse as companionship for their own horse or to take on two foster horses as company for each other.

If you have equestrian facilities, including grazing, and are prepared to foster a horse for six months or until we can find a permanent home we would love to hear from you.
