Adopting a Thoroughbred
The Gulf Coast Thoroughbred Network (GCTBNetwork) is a certified 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created to assist trainers & owners in rehoming retired racehorses.
We provide free online listings of retiring thoroughbreds (OTTBs) for trainers & owners in the Louisiana & Gulf Coast areas. We update this site & our listings as often as we have the information to do so. We list OTTBs that need new homes and foster injured OTTBs until they are suitable for placement in new careers. If you are interested in helping, please visit our Donate page for more information!
With all of their positive attributes, Thoroughbreds can be successful in just about any career. Their speed & athleticism makes them ideal for careers in polo, eventing, jumpers, & barrel racing. Their intelligence & heart lends them towards fox hunting & trail riding. With their grace & competitive spirit, they can excel in hunters & dressage. You can even find them competing in western pleasure.
If a horse is recovering from an injury, we try to gather as much information as we can from the trainer or owner & allow access to any x-rays that may be on file. However, we always encourage the prospective new owner to complete their own pre purchase exam (PPE), as well as any new x-rays or ultrasounds as needed.
Browse our Available Horses page to see horses that are in need of new homes. If you find a horse that you are interested in, please visit the Inquiry Policy page, fill out our Pre-Approval Application & e-mail it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
