Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
The mission of Thoroughbred Athletes, Inc. is to rehabilitate, retrain, and re-home off track Thoroughbred horses and afford community youth the opportunity to experience the process.   Our work promotes growth and learning in both horses and youth.  Horses receive a solid training foundation for a second career prior to adoption into their new homes while our young volunteers learn valuable skills. Our youth program teaches a solid work ethic with an emphasis on teamwork, responsibility, confidence, and service to others.   By teaching our horses a new skill set, we are able to provide them with a future after their work on the track is complete. Whether you are looking for a show horse,  a pleasure riding horse or a companion; we are certain that you can find what you are looking for here at Thoroughbred Athletes, Inc.
