The Heart of The Matter

A RELATIONSHIP OVER 300 YEARS IN THE MAKING
Founded in 2019, R2R focuses on nurturing a long-term positive impact on Thoroughbred welfare and international industry-level support for the Thoroughbred/Human partnership beyond racing. R2R hope to create a global standard for off-track Thoroughbreds within the Equine Assisted Services (EAS) sector, implementing a long-term research programme, engagement and education, and disseminating evidence-based guidelines within the racing industry, EAS and the wider public.  Our methodologies include the study of animal behaviour and welfare research, as well as analysis and strong evidence-based storytelling about use of off-track Thoroughbreds within the wider EAS context.

‘What is courage? Let me tell you what I think it is. An indefinable quality that makes a man put out that extra something when it seems there is nothing else to give. I dare you to be better than you are. I dare you to be a Thoroughbred.’
Herb Brooks, Sportsman

We are a recognised Thoroughbred charity with endorsement from the British Horseracing Authority (BHA), Horse Racing Ireland (HRI), the International Forum for Aftercare of Racehorses (IFAR) and official national retraining charities the Retraining of Racehorses (RoR), the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA), Treo Eile and Au-delà des Pistes (ADDP).  We are very grateful for the kindness and support of The Childwick Trust,  The Sir Peter O’Sullevan Trust, the John Pearce Foundation and the Down Royal Corporation of Horsebreeders as we build the evidence based foundation necessary to secure our long term vision for Thoroughbred welfare in post-racing careers helping people.
