Adopt an OTTB

Adopt a Retired Racehorse, Meet Your New Best Friend!

Through the Placement Program, CARMA has helped retire and transition hundreds of Thoroughbreds from the racetrack and into their second careers as pets, riding horses and sport horses. This a courtesy listing page for the nonprofits we place our Placement Program graduate horses with once they're ready to start retraining and the adoption process.

Joelito has been rehabilitating for 9 months and is now ready to get turned out in pasture.  He will spend a few months in pasture before being lightly restarted under-saddle.  Joelito is a very sweet horse that loves being with people.  He is an old soul and has a very noble presence.  Joelito will make a nice light riding or companion horse.
