OTTB Adoptions

I am looking into adopting an OTTB.
Does anyone have any tips?

And if anyone knows of any good adoption programs near Oklahoma I'm all ears :)

I only know east coast organizations (Re-Run <3) but with OTTBs you have to be prepared for a multitude of issues, they really aren't super 'handled'. Not used to being led a whole lot or really RIDDEN rather than the style of riding used in training them. Patience and having someone who knows a LOT about horse behavior/training is a neccessity.

Thanks!

I train horses but I thought it'd be a great challenging & awarding learning experience to work with an ottb. :)

I don't know anything about this org. Or even how current the website is, but it might be a place to start--
