After The Races NY is dedicated to transitioning, retraining, and re-homing champion ex-racehorses. Anna Hollander is a well-known, 30-year veteran at the racetrack and an accomplished show rider in the equestrian world. It is her passion and love of horses that was the catalyst for purchasing Swedish Hill Farms, just outside of Saratoga Springs. She established After The Races NY and takes pride in it being a smaller operation. This allows ample time with each individual horse. After The Races NY provides superior care and pays exceptional attention to detail when reestablishing a new home for ex-racehorses.
Our top priority is ensuring the health and well-being of each horse. These horses are natural competitors and are far happier being useful in a second career than simply being turned out for the rest of their lives. We are committed to ensuring a fulfilling second career for every ex-racehorse that comes to our program. The guarantee behind every retrained champion horse is Anna and her dedicated team of volunteers. Our support team of veterinarians, blacksmiths, farm helpers, and horsemen are all passionate about our cause.
We use natural horsemanship, patience, extensive knowledge, and experience to train each horse for their own, different talents, and we are dedicated to matching the correct rider/adoptee. Anna has been transitioning racehorses to show horses for over 25 years and the results speak for themselves. She and her team have an instant bond with each horse to reach their future potential. There is a strong commitment and loyalty to give these well-bred athletes a second chance after their racing career. After The Races NY holds yearly fundraisers at Swedish Hill Farm and has a loyal support group of many friends and family. We invite children and adults to visit the farm and to meet and/or learn about horse care.
Our mission statement “Adopt a Champion” says it all!
