Track to Tranquility Equestrian Program specializes in rehabilitating, retraining and rehoming off-the-track Thoroughbreds. We strive to work with retired racehorses to create new lives for them, give them greater opportunities, and to then match them with their perfect partners. We are proud to be partnered with Turning For Home, a 501(c)(3) non-profit group that has provided over 1,000 racehorses with a safe retirement since opening in May 2008.... (read more) As a result of the overwhelming support and amazing opportunities we have come across since opening our doors in December of 2013, we have been fortunate enough to find homes for more than 50+ horses!
Track to Tranquility Equestrian Program is proud to partner with a lovely, privately-owned facility in Ewan, NJ, to take on the responsibility of being our rehab facility. This is extremely important for the horses that get to have second chances at new careers, after they retire with less than perfect career endings and need a bit more than just training for a new career. This is all a huge thanks to our team at Turning for Home for taking such wonderful care of these horses, and our great friends for taking such great care of our new retirees. It is crucial for horses to have a safe landing after retiring from their racing careers, and to have a quiet atmosphere for necessary hand-walking, stall rest and (when cleared for it) the beginning of their turnout time. After completing their “down time” at our rehab facility, our horses then transition to our main facility to begin to go on to have larger, group turnout time, as well as beginning their under saddle training with us.
We continue to cross-train our horses for various disciplines with one common factor, our dressage-based foundation. Every horse learns differently, and has different needs than others, and we understand that and tune in to the horses. Our horses learn at their own pace, and while some learn quicker than others, we get to know each horse and love each horse for the individual it is. At Track to Tranquility we always do what’s best for our horses to give them greater opportunities in every discipline possible, whether that be for dressage, hunters, jumpers, eventing, trail riding, western riding.. you name it!
Track to Tranquility Equestrian Program offers a professional yet friendly atmosphere for not only our horses to learn and improve at their very best always, but for our friends, fellow professionals, students and volunteers to be able to peacefully enjoy their time with us. We are proud to have another, beautiful, privately-owned facility to be able to run our main operations out of. This facility has a total of 20 acres, 10 of which are fully enclosed with 3 boards high, wood plank, perimeter fencing surrounding the barn and paddocks for additional safety. There is a lovely 8 stall barn with 4 group paddocks and 2 private paddocks surrounding, complete with run-in sheds in each. We also have a a riding arena directly behind the barn and miles of trails, as well as access to a fully lit indoor arena just a few minutes from us. Located in Buena, NJ, our main facility is easily accessible from all major highways, is centrally located around various multi-discipline events and showgrounds, and it is also just a short drive to the beaches as well.
Whether our horses are being rehabbed from an injury that occurred during their racing career, or they are ready to enter into our training program to be properly re-started under saddle and/or over fences, the retired racehorses that enter our program quickly adapt to life “from the track to tranquility“.
Track to Tranquility Equestrian Program focuses primarily in Dressage, Hunters, and Jumpers, however we welcome all breeds and disciplines, as well as all levels of riding. Trainer: Rachel Hess (Beginner-Advanced)
