Every year, Your Horse magazine supports a charity at our popular event Your Horse Live, helping them raise money for the horses they rescue and care for. Our readers are given the chance to tell us which charity they would like us to work with, and this year we’re very pleased to announce that top spot has been awarded to Retraining of Racehorses (RoR), who do fantastic work finding race horses new homes and a new career.

RoR is British Horseracing’s official charity for the welfare of horses who have retired from racing and its valuable input to ex-racehorses includes:

·      Raising funds from within the industry for the re-training and rehoming of the horses

·      Providing a safety net for vulnerable former racehorses

·      Promoting the horse’s adaptability and versatility to do other equestrian activities

·      Runs and funds a well-established programme of competitions and educational events across the country

·      Providing information for owners and trainers in both the racing and equine industries to assist with the rehoming and retraining of their former racehorses

Not all racehorses go on to star in a different discipline but RoR hopes that, on seeing what can be done, more riders will think about taking on a racehorse when they are looking for a new horse.

At Your Horse Live we’ll be raising money for RoR by donating all the profits from the Shop and Drop areas. They charity will also be demonstrating in the Country and Stable arena over the weekend, which is your chance to find out more and ask questions about how you can help.

Your Horse Live is held at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire on 9 – 11 November.
