Over the past decade HEROS Charity has retrained and rehomed more than 500 ex-racehorses, giving them a second chance – a New Life After Racing.
We continue to to advise nationally on ex-racehorse welfare and also continue to support the racing industry in its commitment to racehorse welfare. The team at HEROS takes considerable time in the retraining process and in the matching of an ex-racehorse to a new owner, offering follow-up support when required. On average, this procedure can take up to six months or longer and cost the charity a considerable amount per horse for keep, stabling, staff and veterinary care.
In recent months funding cuts have put additional pressure on the charity at a time when our services are needed most. Please do consider what you can do to help us and perhaps make a donation.
