West Point Launches Adoption Page

October 22, 2010 · By · Share

West Point Thoroughbreds is proud to announce the unveiling of our new adoption program for former runners. Click here to visit the page.

Thoroughbred racehorses give owners their all each time they compete. Horses provide us with thrills and memories to last a lifetime. Eventually, a racehorse retires from competition. An owner's responsibility does not end after the final call to the post.

West Point Thoroughbreds believes it is our duty to be a responsible owner, and we take the responsibility seriously. When a horse retires under our care, we do all we can to ensure the horse is placed in home conducive to its ability and needs. Often this means a chance at a second competitive career in equestrian games or being someone's personal pleasure horse. Other times, our horses are carefully placed in environments where they are well cared for and can live comfortably with dignity and enjoy just being a horse. We always say, “If you take care of the horse, the horse will take care of you” and that philosophy is no different after the horse's racing career.

Our company has relationships with quality equine adoption organizations and a network of qualified horse enthusiasts who are willing and able to offer second careers, friendly pastures and most importantly, a good quality of life to our retired runners.
