Raising the Standards

So I was talking with a potential student about standardbreds and she informed me of a very cleverly named website, that is focused on a wonderful sounding re-homing program.

A Trotter in Carbourg, France

Take a look at Raising the Standards: Life at a Different Pace. Don’t you just love the name? 🙂

Many people when they think of ex racehorses, may think of off the track thoroughbreds (OTTB), rather than the trotters and pacers that race in harness.

It’s great to know that there’s an initiative set up in Victoria to help re-home standardbred racehorses.  For those of you who are keen to help re-home or re-educate horses in the future, set ups like this can be a great place to start your research on what works and how much work is required.

An added bonus on the above linked webpage is ‘Standy Wear’ and let’s face it, if you’re a standardbred fan, you may as well wear that tag proudly!

For those who are a fan of the breed – whether trotters or pacers – you may also like to check out Road to the Garryowen – a Standardbred Journey on Facebook.

“His mane is like a river flowing, and his eyes like embers glowing in the darkness of the night, and his pace as swift as light.” – Barry Corwall

  • Booties:

    I met Nicole at Raising the Standards when I was looking for assistance with retraining my STB and what was a client/business relationship grew into a lifelong friendship. Nicoles love and connection with these horses is obvious from the time you meet her – she does an amazing job with them and I cannot recommend her highly enough! If you are looking for a STB for your next riding horse do not hesitate in contacting Raising the Standards!!
