About New Stride

Dedicated to finding adoptive homes and new careers for former Thoroughbred racehorses.

New Stride is a registered charity dedicated to finding adoptive homes and alternative careers for Thoroughbred racehorses no longer able to compete. The charity was founded at Hastings Racecourse in 2002 by a group of concerned owners, breeders and backstretch workers who sought to provide opportunities for a dignified retirement for as many Thoroughbreds as possible.

During its existence New Stride has placed over 200 Thoroughbreds into adoptive homes and assisted many owners and trainers in connecting horses coming off the track with opportunities for new careers and homes. The organization also offers assistance to Thoroughbred owners outside the racing community in the form of information, advice and free advertising of horses for sale on its website.

New Stride is largely volunteer driven. Directors and volunteers donate their time to a vast number of tasks and projects, from general labor around the stable to training to fundraising. Find out how you can help.

Funds raised by New Stride are used to cover foster care expenses, such as feed, shipping and farrier services, basic re-training, medical expenses, as well as for miscellaneous expenses such as blankets and halters. Donate today to help an ex-racehorse!
