Since 1997 CANTER (the Communication Alliance to Network Thoroughbred Ex-Racehorses) has successfully networked to transition ex-race horses into new homes or careers, by listing available horses on their websites.
Kentucky is the latest chapter added to the growing organization. Chapters are currently in California (Northern and Southern chapters), Illinois, Michigan (the founding chapter), Pennsylvania, Ohio, New England and Mid-Atlantic.
Volunteers go to the backsides of the tracks through the shed rows offering their free services to list, photograph and post listings on the affiliate websites. The horses are offered for sale by the trainers/owners starting at $ 600.
Horses for sale in Kentucky will be listed on the chapter's site http://www.canterusa.org/kentucky
CANTER a 501 (c) (3) organization boasts transitioning 10,000 horses from racing since it's inception in 1997. To find out more about CANTER and it's work nationally go to http://www.canterusa.org
