Average Number of Thoroughbreds: 6

At Healing Arenas, we are proud to serve these fine athletes and appreciate our relationships within the racing industry, those who trust us enough to retrain and re-home Thoroughbreds from our facility.

Our organization has also found ways these former racehorses can evolve by utilizing them as part of our team for equine assisted therapy work with humans.  Since our move to Nevada, we’ve been able to provide services for multiple populations.  We’ve implemented our Stable Vets project, our First Responder Support Network, The HIM Project (Horses in Ministry), and are serving the Suicide Prevention Network’s PTSD group.  Providing these services fulfills our dual-purpose mission “to provide public and charitable opportunities to support emotional healing through equine interaction, and to provide safe and restorative homes to retired racehorses.”
