- 2012 (5yo), very lightly raced, 16.1h, dark bay gelding with lots of chrome by Grand Reward - 9 starts w/earnings of only $2,500. Just did not like the racing scene though did appear to prefer the turf! - super, in your pocket lovable and sweet. Has always wanted his very own person to bond with, so ideally a forever home would be our goal for this guy vs for resale. He is one of our barn favorites and loves all horses and people equally. Can be slightly nervous and skittish in some situations, but is an absolute saint in riding ring and LOVES to jump. Super brave and that is how we got him back to being confident enough to race in 2016! - hunter/jumper land is probably his calling!! - beautiful tight legs and sound
PA Racehorse Rehoming,Rehabilitation, Rescue is a Federal 501(c)(3) non-profit organization Federal ID number: 66-0821935 whose Articles of Incorporation were filed with the State of Pennsylvania on May 9, 2014 (effective date of exemption) with Public Charity Status 509(a)(2) under section 501(c)(3).Contributions made to PARR are tax deductible. Our Letter of Determination from the IRS was received on April 16, 2015 and any donations made after May 9th, 2014 may qualify for tax exemption.
Our Legal Name is "PA Racehorse Rehoming, Rehabilitation, & Rescue" and we often go by the abbreviated nickname "PARR". PARR operates on a 100% volunteer basis with all proceeds going to our cause and the animals. Any and all items or monetary donations go directly to the expenses of supporting these animals. This includes veterinary expenses, transport, "pull" fees, food/boarding or stabling/supplies/etc, legal fees, advertising/event costs, merchandise expenses, website and technology fees etc. Individuals on the Board are not paid for their positions. We offer 100% transparency and are happy to answer any questions and provide all financial information at any time. Our officers, directors, and volunteers take a neutral position with respect to the controversy associated with horse racing. Our efforts focus on the well being, re-homing, and education and support of ex-racehorses and finding them new careers after their racing careers have ended. We also support at-risk shelter dogs and occasional at-risk horses that end up neglected or in auction/slaughter situations when finances and abilities allow us to help. Any "listings" are simply to help network animals into new homes and we can not be responsible for the representation of those animals.
As of July 2021, the facility we rented in Pennsylvania was sold out from under us with barely enough time to relocate over 30 horses anywhere in the area. We were able to secure a permanent residence at a new farm in Ocala and move all of our horses there. PARR now resides in Ocala, Florida but still operates as usual, helping horses from Pennsylvania as much as we can, offering sanctuary to our lifelong residents that are not adoptable or require veterinary care to say comfortable, and have our OTTB retraining program here in Ocala as well.
We are now permanently located at 6856 SW 70th Ave. Ocala, Florida 34476.
