Our Mission

Equestrian Inc. is an all volunteer run, registered 501(c)(3) horse sanctuary charity. We specialize in the protection, rehabilitation, re-training and re-homing of thoroughbred ex-racehorses at the highest risk for extermination, neglect and abuse. We strive to bring people who love horses together with the horses we love.


Based in Tampa, Florida, Equestrian Inc. is driven by the philosophy that all horses, whether raced successfully, unraced, old or young deserve a “winning” retirement and a new career. We strive for adoptions to loving, informed homes for all our horses. Off The Track Thoroughbreds (OTTBs) are known for the athleticism, heart and desire to please.
