Moorcroft Racehorse Welfare Centre is a registered charity and our mission is to re-school and rehabilitate former racehorses that have been gifted to us so that they can have a real chance at a second career.

The Centre's Manager, Mary Frances BHSII & BHS.SM has many years experience in training horses with the main emphasis on them being comfortable and sound to be ridden, to do a job. At Moorcroft, we feel that unless we get to the bottom of 'issues', 'quirks', behavioural traits' and all the other excuses that people make for ex-racehorses then we won't really be able to give these horses a long-term future which is what we were set up to do.

All the horses go through a simple, basic, sympathetic retraining programme which they thrive on and aspects of this training is explained at our evening courses and regular Demonstrations – please see Course and Demos page for more info on these. Building the horses confidence in you as a rider and/or handler is the key to good training. No restrictive gadgets, or aggressive methods are used here - just basic honest horsemanship.
