Bangor-On-Dee Racecourse is thrilled to announce that on Saturday 22nd April The British Thoroughbred Retraining Centre will be holding a parade of retired racehorses.

The parade will take place at 1 pm in The Parade Ring and racegoers will have the opportunity to hear more about the work of the BTRC and see how the horses have progressed from racing through to becoming equestrian horses.

They will also have a stand at the racecourse throughout the day selling merchandise and giving out information about their services. There will be a collection on exit for any donations the racegoers wish to give to the charity.

The British Thoroughbred Retraining Centre (BTRC) is a registered charity dedicated to improving and promoting the welfare of retired racehorses through education, retraining and suitable rehoming in order to ensure that our Thoroughbreds have a rewarding and valuable life after their racing careers have ended.

The BTRC is a Centre of Excellence, not only for the retraining of thoroughbreds but also as an education centre to ensure best practice is maintained in this ever increasingly popular area of the equestrian pleasure industry. The BTRC aim to help as many horses as possible each year to be rehomed, these horses either come straight from the racing industry or pre-trained equestrian homes that for many reasons can no longer cope or care for the horse.

The horses then enter into the loan programme and are matched with suitable loaners, but all horses remain under BTRC ownership for the rest of its life. Over the years the TRC has re-homed hundreds of horses where they continue to lead appropriate post-racing careers ranging from hacking and leisure riding to competitive disciplines.
