Saturday, April 26, 2014
from noon to 4 p.m.

There will be training and riding demonstrations all day.  Bring the family and enjoy a day on the farm.  Invite friends - spread the word!
 
This event will make TPR eligible for one of 5 $10,000 grants that the ASPCA will be awarding.  Please come and support the horses and TPR while you enjoy a day on a beautiful farm. 
 
Come and meet the Thoroughbreds! 
Created by the ASPCA®, National Help a Horse Day is a way to raise awareness about the plight of retired racehorses.  According to their Web site, the ASPCA was founded when Henry Bergh, “stopped a cart driver from beating his horse, resulting in the first successful arrest for the mistreatment of a horse on April 26, 1866.  Today, the ASPCA continues to assist domesticated and wild horses through legislation, advocacy, rescue and targeted grants.
 
The event at Leighton Farm, which is located at 13130 Molly Berry Road in Upper Marlboro, offers you and your family an opportunity to meet the horses rescued by TPR and to learn about the rewards and challenges of horse ownership.  The open house will feature demonstrations in riding, blacksmith and horse care, as well as small prizes, contests and informational sessions.
 
Contact us at kclark@goodhorse.org or call 301-579-6898 for information.  The cost is free!
 

 



           
TPR has a three part vision for Responsible Racehorse Retirement.



  »  A Thoroughbred racing industry that embraces Responsible Racehorse Retirement as a core principle.

On average, 30,000 Thoroughbreds are bred in the U.S. each year for the purpose of racing.  Most of them will never win even one race and the majority of them will be retired from racing by the age of 5.  All but a few thousand of them are born needing a safe, sound retirement plan.

  TPR is a resource for those who wish to place and/or retrain retiring Thoroughbred racehorses.

We counsel, consult and teach others how to successfully transition, retrain and find homes for them. We help trainers and owners find new homes and lives for their retiring or retired Thoroughbred racehorses.  TPR strives to improve the reputation of the Thoroughbred by providing correct information about this wonderful breed.   Kimberly Clark, the founder of TPR has written a book, New Track, New Life: A Guide to Understanding and Re-Training Your Off-Track Thoroughbred,” to promote correct training principles through better understanding of ex-racers, this book is available for free download to the public TPR offers a clinic series both at the racetrack and at the farm to teach horsemen how    to better understand and train retired Thoroughbred racehorses using hands-on methods.

  We create breed ambassadors in each TPR Graduate.

Each TPR Graduate serves as an ambassador for not only the TPR Retraining Program, but for all retired racehorses.  We place many retiring racers into high level competitive homes which increases visibility for Thoroughbreds and the TPR training program.  TPR training techniques are proactive, using the horse's previous experience as a springboard to teach them to integrate into a new life outside of racing.  On average, TPR rehomes over 140 retiring racehorses annually.  An average of 35 of these horses completed a full retraining program at Leighton Farm.  TPR hopes to continue that rate of retraining.  We now hold exclusive OTTB shows that showcase the trainability and athleticism of this wonderful breed and at the same time raise funds to continue our work.
