Racing To

Our Vision

Global communities of practice collaborating to support ethically sustainable Thoroughbred-Human relationships where horses and people flourish.

Assisted R&D

The cornerstone of our Thoroughbred Assisted R&D programme is a collaborative PhD research project with the University of Bristol kindly funded by the John Pearce Foundation.  We are developing the evidence-base for best practices in welfare, selection and education of former Thoroughbred racehorses for next careers in Equine Assisted Services (EAS).

Philanthropy isn't just about big gifts; it's about participation.  It is about the grace that comes from working together.

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

The John Pearce Foundation 

“The Foundation’s Trustees are delighted to support Racing To Relate’s work with the University of Bristol, which will help create a greater understanding of Thoroughbreds’ suitability for Equine Therapy purposes and – hopefully – allow more horses to find a meaningful career after they retire from racing.
