Standardbred horses represent one of the most versatile breeds.

Retrained Standardbred horse
in new career.


You will see Standardbreds in endurance, jumping, eventing, dressage, pacing/trotting racing, western riding, police work, drill teams, trail riding and as adorable pets!


Did you know that the horse that holds the record for the most Olympic show jumping gold medals is a Standardbred horse? Many people don't.
We invite you to view videos of former racing pacers retrained as riding horses. Many compete successfully in their 2nd careers too.

All of the pacers that have been retrained will walk, trot and canter without the pacing gait. If you are interested in learning our retraining method for your own horse, please see the retraining video information.
