    Retiring a Horse to Old Friends

    To learn more about placing a horse with Old Friends, please read the information below to determine if your horse meets our retirement criteria.

    • Old Friends accepts Thoroughbreds only.
    • Stallions in need, horses at great risk, and stallions being returned from overseas
      receive preference.
    • Because of demand from the racetrack and breeding shed, we do not accept sport horses or
      horses that have transitioned into other careers or homes. While we have made some rare
      exceptions in the past, our demand from the race track and the breeding shed is now so huge
      that we simply cannot expand our scope. Please visit the website for the Thoroughbred
      Aftercare Alliance ( for a listing of more than 60 accredited
      farms that help OTTBs. Please also visit the websites for your discipline governing bodies
      (such as USEF or AQHA) as they often have links to retirement options.
    • Old Friends is a charitable organization providing permanent, life-long retirement. If your
      horse has an option for a second career, please consider organizations offering rehabilitation
      and rehoming services. Links to accredited facilities can be found on the TAA website.
    • Donations to assist with the cost of your horse’s retirement are appreciated.
    • Old Friends does not pay shipping charges. Owners are responsible for transport of any
      horse accepted.
    • If your horse meets our criteria for placement at an Old Friends sanctioned facility, fill out
      the application below.
    • Your horse will not be considered for placement until you submit this application. This is an
      information-only form. It does not imply acceptance or placement on our waiting list.
    • Do not presume that your horse has been placed on our waiting list or has been accepted
      until we have contacted you with a confirmation of acceptance.
