Not nessacarily retired. Just no longer racing. Most get other jobs, like H/J or dressage or just a trail buddy.

Yup. And with all the training that they get to go onto the track, the training they need to function off the track is usually extensive. It's horrible, but they really do need different treatment. A novice to OTTBs would assume since a jockey rides them, they are broken to saddle, when in reality all they are broken to is running.
