CHAPS Program

Companion Horse Assistance Program 

At the Standardbred Retirement Foundation, we take in horses from all walks of life; some  have worked very hard and taken on countless injuries - both on the track and in the fields.

 

Those horses, our companion / pasture only horses, are also in need of loving homes. We understand that adopting a sweet pasture horse has some additional elements of care, so we are offering an assistance program to anyone who wants to offer them a forever home.
