The Queensland Off-The-Track (QOTT) Acknowledged Retrainers Program is an initiative to provide a high-quality first transition for thoroughbred and standardbred horses - bred for the racing industry and domiciled in Queensland at the time of their retirement from racing or breeding activities.
QOTT Acknowledged Retrainers are a vital component in supporting retired thoroughbred and standardbred horses in gaining the necessary skills and experiences needed to transition from racing to their second careers as pleasure, therapy or performance horses. With proven ability to responsibly rehome horses at the end of the retraining process, QOTT Acknowledged Retainers can assist prospective buyers in selection of a retired racehorse that is suitable for their experience level and intended use.
QOTT Acknowledged Retrainers operate separately to QOTT, however have gained their ‘QOTT Acknowledged Retrainer’ status based on being held in high regard within the industry, as well as for their skill, experience and track record in successfully retraining and rehoming thoroughbred or standardbred horses.
