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.
Winging It is a 16.1h 2019 bay gelding with lots of personality and is looking to be spoiled with a copious amount of peppermints. He has been in our care since he was a yearling. With 5 career starts and his last race in February 2023, Winging It has really decided that maybe his talents lay outside of racetrack life. Due to his young age and that personality we spoke of earlier, he is best suited to an educated rider. He has an observable dropped hip that has been thoroughly assessed by our vets via examination and diagnostics and there is no injury. The muscling does even out with work and has never been a soundness issue. He is best with front shoes on.

Royal Pleasure is a lovely 15.1h 2016 bay mare and she is ready to find that home with someone that wants to love on her and slowly develop her into what will be an amazing riding horse. She was started under tack as a young two year old, but never pursued a career as a racehorse and instead has spent several years living in a broodmare field. She is very kind and would benefit from having one person that is able to take their time with her. Despite not having a lot of under saddle time in her past she is wonderful to ride with a light mouth, very comfortable WTC, and she tolerates a good amount of leg under tack. She is fine with single turnout or with a group, she does not get herd bound. She has had no injuries.
What Drives Us
“Our personal responsibility to the equine industry is to care for the horses throughout their lives. We advocate for breeds that have supported us, and we’ll assist them in their second career or retirement however we can.”
The Ologist Formula
With Jena and Katie both having an extensive background in Hunter/Jumpers and also rehoming OTTBs, they have contacts that span across the sport horse world, which has served them well in rehoming.
They also both have great contacts throughout the thoroughbred racing industry with trainers and owners that aim to responsibly retire their racehorses so that a second career is right around the corner. Finding the most amazing second career home is most important to Jena and Katie; they do not take the task lightly.
Each horse deserves to have a loving home and meaningful life. We have seen these horses go on to have success across multiple disciplines: hunter, jumper, polo, barrel racing, trail, and even companion horses.
Jena and Katie aim to keep close eyes on these horses as they move through their next career, as seeing a horse succeed later in life is just as rewarding.
The team, also consisting of Meg Miranda and Angela Chovnick, bring a wealth of knowledge, experience, and passion in creating a positive experience for each horse.
