Ernie is a very friendly guy, a big cuddle bug, well loved by his racetrack people. He's settled in with New Stride nicely and is fitting in well. Ernie tries hard during his 'retraining sessions', he loves attention and grooming. We are working with him from the ground, teaching him how to behave for his life off the track and he's progressing well. He looks forward to his training sessions and is an enthusiastic ride. Ernie loves to interact with other horses too,he's just an all 'round good dude. Ernie has three lovely gaits, a good walk, a ground covering easy trot and a lovely big comfortable canter. We are taking our time teaching him a new balance and to move from the leg. At present we are adding poles to his riding sessions. He also enjoys taking 'breaks' to hang out and watch the other horses work. Ernie will fit in well with a more casual or 'non' show home. Ernie loves our farrier and stands nicely for hot shoeing. He is also quite keen to learn the art of opening gates while under saddle and doing well at it! Check him out on our Facebook page. He came to us because he has laryngeal hemiplegia or 'roaring'. Ernie has had surgery to open his airway.

We pride ourselves in finding loving homes for our equine partners. As a part of the process, we require all prospective adopters to view their potential horse in-person. We look forward to hearing from you.

About New Stride Thoroughbred Adoption Society:

New Stride is a registered charity dedicated to finding adoptive homes and alternative careers for Thoroughbred racehorses no longer able to compete. The charity was founded at Hastings Racecourse in 2002 by a group of concerned owners, breeders and backstretch workers who sought to provide opportunities for a dignified retirement for as many Thoroughbreds as possible.

During its existence New Stride has placed over 150 Thoroughbreds into adoptive homes and assisted many owners and trainers in connecting horses coming off the track with opportunities for new careers and homes. The organization also offers assistance to Thoroughbred owners outside the racing community in the form of information, advice and free advertising of horses for sale on its website.
