I have rescued several off track Thoroughbreds. They always seem to find themselves in crummy situations I guess. Here are a few of them:
Kitty - Currently here learning to be a Trail horse/4-H horse
Kitty in her arrival condition:
Zelous - This boy came strait off the track but was the most wonderful horse I've ever met. He is such a sweet heart and it was very hard for me to part with him. He loved his new job and was very trusting, pictured with a guy whos never ridden before :)
(Here is what Zealous looked like upon arrival here)
This is Swifty, another one I have a soft spot for. He was a sweetheart as well and took right to being the worlds best kid safe horse with a heart of Gold. He'd been off the track for two years before coming her but hadn't been ridden in that time.
