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.
WAYS TO GIVE
A donation to the TAA is supporting an infrastructure of 82 accredited aftercare nonprofits in North America that retrain, rehome, and retire Thoroughbreds.
FIND AN ORGANIZATION
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.
TAA Thoroughbred Spotlight
Dr. Hipp was thoughtfully retired by his connections to TAA-accredited Hope After Racing Thoroughbreds. The Iowa-based organization spent two months rehabbing Dr. Hipp before he was cleared to begin retraining for a second career.
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.
Bred in Maryland and campaigned on the east coast, Crazed retired from racing sound and ready for a second career.
After three starts at Penn National, a handsome bay gelding suffered a slab fracture, thus ending his career on the track.
Let Me Loose
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.
