Subsidised Lessons Program

Applications for the QOTT Subsidised Lessons Program for 2021 are now closed.

The opening date for applications for the 2022 Program will be advised on this webpage.


The Queensland Off-The-Track (QOTT) Subsidised Lessons Program is an initiative to support retired Standardbred and Thoroughbred horses as they transition from the racing industry into the domestic horse community.

The Program enables new owners of retired Standardbred and Thoroughbred horses to receive tailored support across a range of areas including feeding and nutrition, general care, groundwork, behaviour and ridden components.

The Program operates through a voucher system, with approved Participants issued vouchers to subsidise the cost of lessons. Approved Participants are eligible for 10 individual lessons of up to 45 minutes in duration with a QOTT Approved Coach.
