“River” is a lovely 7 year old, 16.1 hand chestnut mare by Defrere who was lightly raced and retired sound with clean legs. She has had the last year off to be a pasture puff (though she doesn’t fully look it!) and was given to ATR by her owner who is getting out of the racing business. Rather than have his horses return to the track, he chose to donate them to ensure they are given the best shot at a long and fulfilling career beyond racing and we could not be more grateful....

River is a VERY sporty mover with an uphill build that show riders should pay attention to. She is very sound and currently barefoot with no vices. We have begun her retraining process and at the moment are working with her primarily on the lunge line where she is doing well. While she was reported by her trainer to be good under saddle with no buck or rear, she does have a good deal of energy and would do best with an experienced rider and owner.
Video available on her page of the website.
After The Races
A rehabbing and rehoming facility for retired Thoroughbred race horses, here at After the Races we have several nice OTTBs in need of great homes. Adoption fees are low and these horses are capable of going on to any discipline. Right now we have horses who would make fantastic trail or lesson mounts as well as those who could go on to high level showing. Many great projects. Please consider adopting today!
