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).
Racing To Relate in collaboration with The Peter O'Sullevan Trust, the Human Equine Interaction Register (HEIR) and Great British Racing (GBR) will soon announce the launch of their Thoroughbred Voices essay competition.
Effectively, change is almost impossible without industry-wide collaboration, cooperation and consensus

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

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.
