Thoroughbreds in Sport
A soft spot for off track thoroughbreds
Off track thoroughbreds have historically been big players in the hunter/jumper world. Recently, many programs have emerged encouraging the revitalization of the thoroughbred sport horse, and thoroughbreds are making a comeback in a big way. Each year, Emily prides herself in bringing along a new thoroughbred prospect and aims to compete at the Retired Racehorse Project held at the Kentucky Horse Park each year at the beginning of October. Many of her clients also choose to go the thoroughbred route due to their athletic abilities and incredible work ethic. Programs such as the Thoroughbred Incentive Program (TIP), also offer the opportunity to compete for awards and prizes at a higher level of competition than schooling shows, but a much lower price point than A/AA rated shows, which opens up competition to a much wider variety of riders, which Emily believes is very important.
