About Us

Retraining of Racehorses (RoR) is British Horseracing’s official charity for the welfare of horses who have retired from racing.

This dedicated RoR Source A Horse website helps facilitate the rehoming of former racehorses by offering advertising to sell, buy or loan former racehorses either directly out of trainers yards or for those horses that have been out of training for a period of time. Whatever the level of retraining, this is the place to advertise or source a former racehorse.

Overall the charity:

  • Raises funds from within the Racing Industry for the retraining and rehoming of former racehorses.
  • Provides a safety net for vulnerable former racehorses.
  • Promotes the adaptability and versatility of racehorses to other equestrian activities.
  • Runs and funds a well established programme of competitions and educational events across the country.
  • Provides information for owners and trainers in both the Racing and Equine Industries to assist with the rehoming and retraining of their former racehorses.
