Re-education of racehorses (RoR)
This thoroughbred is evaluated by our specialist, who will create a re-training schedule that prepares the horses for a new careers before they are re-homed. Endangered conditions from which these horses come may be due to economic difficulties or an owners who is ill and can no longer take good look after his horses, or to cases in which the whole blood has not been taken good care of and therefore his well-being is bad.
As a result, the horses are strengthened in their stomach musculature and are taught to maintain a constant pace that enhances their equilibrium and strengthens their framework. Depending on the horse's abilities, he is trained in walking, trotting and cantering. As soon as the animal has a good training, it is chopped out accompanied and alone.
Thus the basis for the re-training of thoroughbreds for re-entry has been created. Once the stallion is able to achieve more, it will also be able to perform riding stick work and covering bars to provide a fundamental grasp of show-jumping. From time to time we can see that there will be a thoroughbred breeding that cannot be re-trained for riding due to various problems such as conformation or past injury.
However, they are excellent to be a good escort for another animal. Thoroughbred horses from a wide range of fields are in our nursing division currently receiving rehabilitative training and are being retrained to find affectionate new houses.

The RoR Pferd of the Year, donated by The Jockey Club
The restrained racing champion of 13-year-old Whatcanyasay was appointed Jockey Club/RoR horse of the Year at the RoR Awards presentation on Wednesday, November 26, 2014, at the Jockey Club premises in Newmarket. RoR organized the first RoR Awards, awarding £16,500 worth of awards and trophy money to each of the champions of the RoR Elite Series 2014.
The RoR horse of the year win was a real shock for Whatcanysay's owners, 23-year-old Robyn Gray, as RoR patron Clare Balding, who presented the night together with Willie Carson. Robyn was presented with the eternal RoR Horse of the Year Champion's Trophy and V.I.P. passes for the opening of the Cheltenham Festival 2015 by Stephen Wallis, Group Director of International and Racing Relations for the Jockey Club, the sponsor of this renowned new accolade.
Whatcanysay has since retired distinguished himself in his new carreer with the RoR line of tests that compete in a variety of horse events ranging from versatility, cross-country, shooting and training to show jumping, but says Robyn that his strength lies in showing. During his first year he won the RoR Scottish Championship at the Royal Highland in 2012, the RoR/TBA Challenge Class at Aintree and was also Champion of the Hambleton District Show as well as the qualification for the Open Pony Dresden Club Championships.
Whatcanysay took 6th place in 2013 at the top-class Horses of the Year Show directly behind the Queen's Horses Barber Shop. A mere three week later he started the RoR Meriel Tuffnell Racing to Hunting Challenge on the Cheltenham Racecourse and took second place. At the RoR/TBA Racehorse Challenge Trained Challenge Final at the Royal Windsor Horse Show 2014 in May he was second this year and the following June he won the RoR/Tattersalls Scottish Show Series Championship at the Royal Highland Show.
Awarding the prizes to the RoR Elite Champions and the inclusion of the new RoR horse of the year, the event will provide a focal point to commemorate the accomplishments of the thousand of former race horses who successfully compete in riding events, and showcase both the adaptive ability and diversity of former race horses who, after the race, will learn new career paths for a lifetime.
