HEROS (Homing Ex-Racehorses Organisation Scheme) is a charity dedicated to ensuring former racehorses have a future when their racing days are over and was set up in July 2006 by Grace Muir, CEO, to help the vulnerable and unwanted racehorses that leave the industry each year.
HEROS believes that these horses deserve a future and with re-education and retraining can be rehomed to suitable people and have a long, happy and useful life.
HEROS has successfully rehomed hundreds of ex-racehorses to date and have developed an extremely good reputation for correctly matching the horses to their new owners across all disciplines; as competition horses, hacks or simply companions, truly giving them a second chance.
A small number of racehorses are champions on the racecourse but each one of them has the potential for a new life in a different disipline after racing. They are all winners to HEROS as they move on “to pastures new”. HEROS was granted charitable status in July 2006.
