With support from the Racing Foundation and its many partners, HEROS is proud of the individual care offered to all the horses and students at HEROS. HEROS is the Aftercare Partner to British Racing and The Education Programme is expanding very quickly to include exciting new programmes from September 2023

What to expect

Welcome to HEROS Charity based at North Farm Stud. HEROS has rehomed over 500 ex-racehorses since Grace started the charity in 2006. HEROS has now branched out, providing education to a variety of students using horses, including ex-racehorses. We hope you enjoy visiting us, meeting our horses and students and seeing how adaptable ex-racehorses are to ‘a life after racing’

There will be a catering van on site, which will serve refreshments including hot and cold drinks, sweet treats and lunch options.
