Get Accredited

The TAA is the only accrediting body in aftercare and reviews all aspects of an aftercare nonprofit during accreditation. We work with organizations so they can reach a high standard of operation.


A donation to the TAA is supporting an infrastructure of 82 accredited aftercare nonprofits in North America that retrain, rehome, and retire Thoroughbreds.


Operating with the highest standards, TAA-accredited organizations have 180 facilities across North America that offer adoption programs, rehab programs, sanctuary, and equine-assisted programs.

    Upon retirement from racing, “Kid”, as he is affectionately known, became a track pony at NYRA, his friendly and easy-going personality making him a good candidate for assisting racehorses on the track.

  • Crazed

    Bred in Maryland and campaigned on the east coast, Crazed retired from racing sound and ready for a second career.

    After nine starts, he was retired to the Secretariat Center with a record of 1-1-2 and earnings of $13,494. Not taking to a career as a racehorse, the 3-year-old began his journey to a new job and, eventually, a home to call his own.

  • Little Brown Derby

    Little Brown Derby only raced as a juvenile, before retiring to TAA-accredited New Stride Thoroughbred Adoption Society. Now he’s a jack of all trades who dabbles in modeling on the side.
