Standardbreds

The word is slowly spreading about standardbreds – they are gaining a much deserved reputation as a breed with quiet and trainable temperaments. These horses, although trained to trot or pace at high speeds, are more than capable of making the transition from harness racing to riding horses in all sorts of disciplines.

On this page you’ll find links to clubs, breed societies, non-profit organisations, businesses, individuals and others involved in giving standies another career after racing. Links to event calendars for shows, training days and more at the bottom of the page.
