Having the accreditation of the TAA has added to our reputation in the aftercare industry and enabled us to better serve the Thoroughbreds in our care through their financial support.
After The Races
Our goal is to continue to help the Thoroughbred horses that come to our farm, giving them a second chance through retraining or sanctuary. We applaud the efforts the Thoroughbred industry is taking to support the aftercare of the Thoroughbred horses that have served the industry.
Jo Anne Miller
Brook Hill Farm
Accreditation by a national organization such as the TAA shows the community that we operate with the best interest of our horses and reassures them that their donations are going to a responsible organization. The TAA’s assistance allows us to continue our mission of repurposing and rehoming off-the-track Thoroughbreds.
Equine Rescue of Aiken
The time and effort by all at TAA to better the lives of Thoroughbreds has accomplished so much for the retired and those still on the track. I am so proud to be an accredited member of Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance.
Harmony and Hope Horse Haven
TAA’s rigorous accreditation process gives legitimacy to reputable aftercare programs. We are honored to partner with TAA and thrilled that our industry has stepped up to support aftercare and ensure safe futures for our Thoroughbreds.
MidAtlantic Horse Rescue
The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance has brought many aftercare organizations together with their creative fundraising, stringent requirements and, most of all, their love for our great athletes. They are directly responsible for Old Friends’ increase in the number of retirees that we care for and, once they get here, the quality of care they receive. We can’t thank them enough.
Having the oversight of the TAA has allowed us to expand within a dynamically challenging industry with more horses benefiting from our services than ever before. Providing financial support along with national recognition, the TAA has been invaluable to the efforts of those helping Thoroughbreds. The TAA is allowing more horses than ever to turn for home.
The support of the TAA has allowed Second Stride to increase the number of horses we care for. Through the TAA application process, evaluations, and site visits required, our administrative procedures improved with TAA feedback. This process helps ensure the best ongoing care for horses, donors, and adopters.
