→ The Maryland racing industry has no retirement program for their horses. TPR is working hard to convince Maryland Horsemen that they need a retirement program and more importantly that retired Thoroughbred racehorses are wanted by the show and pleasure world. These horses are not "unwanted" as some believe. Since November 2007, TPR has placed through sale and adoption more than 600 horses. Most of them retiring or retired Thoroughbred racehorses coming off of Maryland tracks. Obviously this is proof there are many who wish to own an ex-racer.
→ TPR, Inc. is a resource for those who wish to learn how to place retiring Thoroughbred racehorses. We counsel, consult and teach others how to to successfully transition, retrain and find homes for them.
→ We successfully transition and retrain racehorses into other disciplines; and teach these techniques and philosophies to others. Horses come to Leighton Farm to enjoy transitioning and training. Clark’s training techniques are proactive, using the horse's previous experiences as a springboard to teach them to integrate into a new life off the track.
→ We strive to improve the reputation of the Thoroughbred by providing correct information about this wonderful breed. Kimberly
Clark, founder of TPR has written a book, “New Track, New Life” to
promote correct training principles through better understanding of
ex-racers. It is currently being developed into a dvd series. A clinic series is being created to teach horsemen how to better
understand and train retired Thoroughbred racehorses.
Through placement, support, education and rescue, we strive to make a difference.
