I was just wondering what percent of thoroughbred horses taken off the track with injuries are actually able to become good hunter/jumper, dressage horses. I guess alot would depend on the injury as well. I am a first time thoroughbred owner and just curious.

Excel was retired with clean legs, he was just too slow

Molly had a slab frature and collapses when she jumps. Her old trainer showed me a video of her jumping her the first time and she completely fell down, so she can't jump, but she's still an excellent dressage horse.

Flash doesn't have any injuries, but my first horse came off the track with a bone spur and was fine for flatwork and jumping under 2'9.

Bourbon had a minor bow but it was treated with platelet injections and he is 100% sound for everything with no limits.

My previous horse came off the track for a chipped fetlock.

She successfully jumped 3'3" - 3'6" without any injuries. In fact she was probably the most sound Thoroughbred I've ever worked with. She never had soundness issues, only colic issues.

Mine just has/had low palmer angles in his front hooves so he requires shoes. But other than that he's like a tank!
