Creating A Career Beyond Racing

Please join us in our efforts to help support The Thoroughbred Sport Horse Association (TSHA). We are thrilled to get behind the THSA as they strive to create a second career and demand for horses beyond Racing. 


The Thoroughbred Sport Horse Association aims to create a second career and a demand for retired thoroughbred race horses.

To achieve this we are initiating thoroughbred-only competitions in the equestrian disciplines of showjumping, eventing, dressage, camp drafting and hacking. In 2019/20 we are starting with showjumping.


TSHA’s main objective is to work with show organisers to create dedicated thoroughbred classes and to secure funding from the Racing Industry for prize money for those classes, thereby creating a market for off-the-track horses.

Retraining and rehoming will be given a huge boost once the thoroughbred competition circuit is up and running as it creates a market, a demand and a reason to purchase a thoroughbred.

TSHA classes will be a training ground for young people who are competent with and have an understanding of thoroughbreds. It will be a natural progression for these young enthusiasts to go from sport horse competition to work in the Racing Industry.

Life Beyond Racing can be just as rewarding.

All donations, big or small, are helpful and greatly appreciated & we are thrilled to offer a Gold Class Sponsorship.
