Charity of the year announced

03 Aug 2018 15:31

Every year, Your Horse Live supports a charity, helping them raise money for the horses they rescue and care for. Our Your Horse magazine readers are given the chance to tell us which charity they would like us to work with, and this year we’re very pleased to announce that top spot has been awarded to Retraining of Racehorses (RoR). 

RoR is British Horseracing’s official charity for the welfare of horses who have retired from racing and its valuable input to ex-racehorses includes:

  •    Raising funds from within the industry for the re-training and rehoming of the horses

  •    Providing a safety net for vulnerable former racehorses

  •    Promoting the horse’s adaptability and versatility to do other equestrian activities

  •    Runs and funds a well-established programme of competitions and educational events across the country

  •    Providing information for owners & trainers in both the racing & equine industries to assist with the rehoming & retraining of their former racehorses

Not all racehorses go on to star in a different disciplines but RoR hopes that, on seeing what can be done, more riders will think about taking on a racehorse when they are looking for a new horse.

At Your Horse Live we’ll be raising money for RoR by donating all the profits from the Shop and Drop areas. The charity will also be demonstrating in the Country and Stable arena over the weekend, which is your chance to find out more and ask questions about how you can help.
