I recently attended a fund raising event for After The Finish Line, a wonderful organization who raises money for off the track thoroughbreds. I have supported them since their inception and it has been a pleasure to watch them grow in their ability to positively affect not only the lives of horses, but the awareness of those involved in the world of horse racing.
One of the main reasons I decided to become involved with this organization is because they don’t use blame or fault to support their cause. Their main focus is the horses…not the industry from which they come. The end result is that the horses themselves are honored…for their bravery, for their heart and for their right to live out their lives doing something they love. Consequently, more and more thoroughbreds are now helping humans who are helping horses….a joyous circle of life continues.
