If you have a former Racehorse please register with RoR, whether you compete, hunt, enjoy hacking out or even simply have your former racehorse as a companion, we would like to know.
RoR would like to know where as many former racehorses are as possible. Many organisations and RoR need these statistics to prove that former racehorses have a life after racing and to help raise funds. RoR can also consider suitable future initiatives based on this information.
Your help with this is much appreciated, and registering with RoR permits you to take part in the many RoR regional educational events and competitions. There are certain criteria for some competitions so please refer to the relevant competition pages for each discipline for more information on rules and eligibility.
If you are purchasing a retrained racehorse that you believe is already registered with RoR please email all details to email@example.com to inform us of your new ownership.
It is free to register your former racehorse with RoR and enjoy access to clinics and camps. Simply click on Register Your Horse and complete the details required. Any former racehorse can be registered whether they have raced or not raced. (If unraced, they must have been in training)
