Why have an ex-racehorse?
- The Thoroughbred is the most versatile of breeds and is able to adapt to other disciplines very quickly.
- Although they are primarily bred for racing, thoroughbreds excel in many other spheres, being highly intelligent, athletic and very retrainable.
- They are extremely varied in type and size, anything from 14.2hh to 18hh+.
- From an early age they are well handled, well travelled and have experienced a lot more than any other horses of a similar age.

Testimonial from the new owner of KILBURN – Leanne, October 2014.
"I had the best experience buying my horse from HEROS. I was keen to avoid the dishonest horse traders out there that sell horses with hidden injuries and behavioural issues. I came to HEROS because I knew I would find a quality horse with a true account of his history and temperament.
HEROS encouraged me ride and get to know Kilburn before I bought him. I rode him in the school, hacked him out, and spent time grooming and getting to know him, so I knew I was making the right decision. As this was my first horse I needed lots of help and advice. HEROS taught me some great training methods, and gave me advise on tack, rugs, feed, and how to get my horse settled in his new home. I know that I can ring them anytime if I run into any problems and they will be there to help me.
In my opinion this is the best way to buy a horse. I really couldn't recommend HEROS enough to anyone. They matched me to my horse within minutes and he has exceeded all my dreams. I'm also pleased that by buying my horse from HEROS I got to support the wonderful work they do re-homing race horses. "
Thank you Leanne, we wish you and KILURN a happy life together.
