Have you ever wondered...

What happens to a racehorse when it steps off the track for the last time? Most Thoroughbreds have nowhere to go, no knowledge of anything other than racing, and nobody to take care of them. Yet, with rehab and a new foundation of skills, these athletic, versatile horses can excel in lots of equestrian sports. We at the MMSC are 100% "horse-centric," meaning every horse in our program gets everything it needs from the care and training right down to the person it goes home with. That's why the MMSC has been hailed as "The Gold Standard of Thoroughbred Reschooling." Yet this dedication to the horse and commitment to excellence comes with a price.  

The MMSC's Team Challenge campaign will, with your help, raise $30K to give former racehorses all they need.

How to Participate:
- Sign up as a Fundraiser or as a Team on the MMSC Team Challenge page at
- Reach out to your friends and family about your need for help in the MMSC Team Challenge on your social media OR ask them to send a check to the MMSC with your name in the memo so it gets applied towards your total.
- Host an event (run, walk, kan jam, cookout - check out event suggestions on line). Send pictures and details about your event to the MMSC at, and mail a check for the total amount raised to the MMSC with your name in the memo.
- Check if your place of work will match the sum that you raise in a matching gift.
