Equine Activities – Takoda Wellness Ranch is also home to Off Track Transformations- a 501(c)(3) non profit organization that specializes in the second career training, rehabbing, adoption and placement of Off Track Thoroughbreds ( OTTB) after retiring from their racing careers. Their main focus is to provide these incredible horses with the tools to successfully transition into “normal” horse life, become skilled in a new discipline, then ultimately fulfill their amazing potential!
Off Track Transformations provides a solid landing for retired racehorses whether they are ready to learn a new job or need rehabbing and down time – all the way up to helping connect horses and riders with one another to find their perfect homes!
Our equine activities offerings include trail riding for 1, 2, and 3 hour rides starting at $85, lessons starting at $35, monthly training starting at $850, and photography starting at $250.
Join us in learning more about the variety of skills, impacts and incredible connections a Retired Racehorse can offer – let alone bringing about positive change for these sometimes forgotten athletes.
Their goal is to showcase the variety of talent OTTBs have to offer after their racing years (or for some, before their racing career even started as the were deemed not fit for the track) while also helping military vets by learning more about these amazing athletes!
The core of our mission is helping the heroes that have come home after war with both physical and mental “scars” – same as a highly trained racehorse, veterans share the daunting task of transitioning from a regimented and consistent routine to being a civilian that can successfully function in society. Our job is to give both the horses and heroes the tools they need to make progress in their individual journeys.
