Sophie Spiteri has been offering a retraining service to racing yards and owners across the UK and Ireland for over 10 years. One of our members was so impressed with their visit that they requested we share Sophie’s details with you.
“I have been lucky enough to work alongside former racehorses for the last 15 years. I have retrained many horses over the years for a number of national and international yards. I pride myself on forming long term relationships with trainers and new owners alike. Acting as a ‘middleman’ between horses exiting the racing industry and the private home and competition scene, all horses undergo assessment and some degree of retraining before they are matched up with suitable long term homes.“
“All horses are individually assessed and worked according to their individual needs and requirements. Horses will generally undergo an assessment period of 3-6 weeks according to their ridden capabilities, before finding private, long term homes. There is no rehoming fee, and all transport and shipping costs are met by ourselves. Should owners wish to stay in touch, an update service is offered for this purpose. All horses are rehomed on long term homing agreements, with references and background checks undertaken as standard.“
