New Beginnings horses currently resting

Horses come to us directly from horseracing either because they are not fast enough, injury has halted their career or they are have reached an age where they should retire from the sport. Others come from private homes, their racing career may have ended many years ago, but through no fault of their own, their owner’s circumstances have changed and they can no longer keep the horse.

When a horse comes into New Beginnings it is assessed and will usually have a visit from our farrier, dentist and physio to check that everything is in order, they will then be turned away with a few other horses in selected groups to allow them to relax and become a horse again.

This ‘time out’ is invaluable as it allows their race muscle to soften, but more importantly it will allow them the time to mentally adjust to life after racing. Every horse is an individual and we treat them as such, some horses will be turned away for several weeks or a few months. The time is completely dependent on the individual.

Once they are showing signs of being relaxed and are looking for a job we bring them in and their re-schooling starts.
