horseOlogy Encore is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization
“To transition and care for retiring thoroughbreds or other equine and prepare for their next careers whether it be companion, riding or therapeutic service and offer an educational opportunity to the community.”
Available for Rehoming
The vast majority of rehoming opportunities come from off the track thoroughbreds (OTTB’s) and we take it upon ourselves to make sure that there are open doors and soft landings for each and every one of them that come to us at the end of their racing career.

What does a second career mean for our equine friends? Whether it is a thoroughbred that’s done with its race career, a show horse that needs an easier job, or a broodmare that gets to retire from her kiddos, we like to think there is a second career for most and aim to create a soft landing for others.
Our Resident Oldies
Not all horses are suited for a second career, and it is most important to understand the difference. You will notice many farms throughout Lexington and Ocala have a field they deem “the retired field” and these typically home retired broodmares, track ponies and others that may have been retired and not able to be rehomed due to injury or temperament.
