At present, Storybrooke trainer, Stephanie Carter, is preparing 'Jade Glory Again' to compete in the Retired Racehorse Project (RRP) Makeover in Lexington, Kentucky,
October 27th- 30th, 2016. The goal of the RRP is, “…to showcase the trainability and talent of off-track Thoroughbreds, and to inspire trainers to secure the futures of these animals with the education that they need…” This program has been designed to encourage the thoroughbred industry to retire their horses sound (healthy and free of lameness), and to seek out trainers who are successful in giving them the training required to be successful in sport horse careers. With these incentives and the publicity provided by the RRP and its participants, the value and desire for thoroughbred horses will increase, which will potentially save thousands of horses from undesirable fates, such as slaughter or euthanasia on the track. With the resurgence of the American Thoroughbred as the ideal sport horse, it would prove to be beneficial for anyone who takes pride in our country, is an equestrian enthusiast, or animal lover, to invest in America's Horse and support the efforts of not only the RRP but Thoroughbred organizations nation wide. Not only do are we hoping to compete to win, but we are hoping that by partaking in such an amazing opportunity that we will bring further attention to these wonderful horses and breathe life into the organization(s) that helps provide loving, homes for them after the track.
If you have a Thoroughbred in need of training, or are looking to send your horse to the RRP Makeover. Please contact us to take advantage of our special OTTB discounts. We currently have one additional training position for the 2016 RRP.
Storybrooke focuses on training during the formative years, from imprinting through backing and starting, though horses of all ages and training levels are welcome. Storybrooke can create an individualized training regime to best suit the horse’s needs as well as their owner’s goals. Each horse is kindly educated in ground etiquette, under saddle in the ring, as well as on the trails. A calm, confident, partner is one who has received a well-rounded education.
In addition, Storybrooke offers a specific training program for of the track Thoroughbreds. Our trainer has 20+ years experience with OTTBs , selecting them from the track, and developing them for successful second careers. We strive to produce the timeless and classic Throughbred hunters.
