Ex-Racehorses for Re-Homing

A selection of our ex-racehorses currently available for re-homing or under assessment can be seen below.

Perhaps we have your ideal horse. If you are interested in any of the horses shown please contact us to discuss further and we will book you in for a visit to Greatwood.

Alternatively visit our Re-homing page for further information on our expectations of a carer and the re-homing process.

Over the past twenty years hundreds of our horses have gone on to find new fulfilling careers with wonderful carers.


6 year old - 15.2hh - Bay Gelding
QT has been working well in the school, he has 3 very good paces and has an extremely athletic natural jump.
QT is still green but is good in traffic and would make somebody with the time and patience a fantastic Riding Club/ODE horse.


9 year old - 15.2hh - Bay Gelding
BB has taken to domestic life brilliantly, he is very straight forward and eager to please. He is good in traffic, has 3 nice paces and has been very bold over jumps in the school. BB has a lot to offer and make somebody a wonderful horse.


10 year old - 16.3hh - Dark Brown Gelding
Tresor is a sweet natured sensitive horse. He is good in traffic, loves to jump and working well on the flat. Tresor needs time and patience but has lots to offer and will make somebody a terrific horse.

4. PENNYMAX (Penny)

11 years old - 16.3hh - Bay Gelding
Max arrived at Greatwood January 2015 after a short but successful career as a chaser. Max is an exciting prospect and requires an experienced, confident rider. He is excellent in traffic and hacks out well with others.


11 years old - 16.2 - Bay Gelding
Scotty’s is a kind sweet natured horse, still young at heart this horse would suit a rider looking to bring a horse on. He shows 3 nice paces in the school and is showing willingness over poles and through grid work. Scotty’s is ridden in a bit less bridle, hacking out confidently, will go out alone or in company and is good in traffic.


14 years old – 17.2hh - Dark Bay Gelding
Louis is a lovely horse and good to handle in every way. He is good in traffic, hacks out alone or in company. He well-schooled with 3 nice paces; Louis is a big, gentle horse with plenty of potential, he is easy to handle and good to shoe.


11 years old - 15.2hh - Bay Gelding
One of our smaller horses, this ball of fun loves life. There is not an aspect of riding that Vamos can’t handle, he is a great hack, hacks alone or in company and is good in traffic. This little ‘pocket rocket’ is a fantastic horse and would make somebody very happy.


17 years old - 16hh - Chesnut Gelding
Definite Article – Cairo Lady (IRE)
56 starts on the flat, over hurdles and jumps - 9 wins, 19 places
