Meet Some of the Horses Your Donation Helps



You Give These Horses Hope and the Gift of a Happy Future

Meet a few of the horses you help when you support our work.  These are the faces of TPR.  Just some of the horses who are receiving the care, rehabilitation and training they need to have a wonderful life.

Your support gave Scat Jack the year he needed to heal and recover from his surgery.  It meant the difference between a life of pain or a productive life with a future.  Scat is now 3 years old, and has grown to a little over 16 hands.  He’s successfully rehabilitated from his surgery and participating in our very successful retraining program.  He went to his forever home on Thanksgiving Day!  All of this has been possible because of the support we receive from you!
“Punkie” is about to turn 31 years old!  He’s a sanctuary resident at Leighton Farm, the home of Thoroughbred Placement Resources.  He is an ambassador of  the retired racehorses, demonstrating to everyone who visits how kind and gentle they are.  He also represents the commitment we have to providing these horses with the life they deserve.  Without your support Punkie  would not have this wonderful life where he continues to give.  
Lady is a vision of loveliness both inside and out!  She has an impressive race record and then retired to be a brood mare.  She had some babies but became difficult to keep in foal so the decision was made to find her a new line of work.  She is here at our training center receiving the training needed to be successful in her new endeavor.  With those looks and her kind and easy going temperament we think she’s going to be a super star at the age of 12 when we find the right human for her!
 At five months Graycie was rescued by Clark’s mentor in rescue and aftercare. The purchase of Graycie as a yearling is how they met and began Clark’s work with retired racehorses. Graycie, now aged 16, will live out her days in sanctuary with us. She inspired and financed the retirement program we now call Thoroughbred Placement Resources. Almost all of the $85,000 she earned as a racehorse went to helping other racehorses find new lives once their careers ended.
Wheresmokethrsfire was sent to us last year because he was not a good fit for his owner.  He was put into our retraining program to receive the training needed to enjoy a successful future.  Because of you, he now has the skills he needs.  Smoke is currently available for adoption.  We expect him to find his forever home in the near future.  None of this would happen without the support of our donors.
Birde and Wills They need your help.  Birdie and Wills have both suffered in their past.  They bonded and have found strength in their partnership.  They need each other and because of your support, we have been able to keep them together while we look for a home. We continue to seek a suitable adopter who will keep them together but this is a very difficult placement since neither is a good riding horse You can donate directly to their campaign here.
Giving Tuesday, November 27, 2018 kicks off your end of year fundraising campaign. We need you. To help the horses go to goodhorse.org or mail to TPR, 13130 Molly Berry Road, Upper Marlboro, MD 20772 Call us at 410-802-8425.
