A group in Newell is taking former racehorses and giving them a second shot at life.
The Horse Creek Thoroughbreds' "Gate to Great" program gives thoroughbred horses that come from the racing life a chance to become working ranch horses, companion horses or show horses for future owners. Many former racehorses that are no longer useful to their current owners are often sent to the slaughterhouse. This program aims to save them.
Owner Dorothy Snowden says these racehorses also don't often thrive without a job to do and falter if they don't work with humans.
