Adopting From CTA
Horses are available to qualified adopters in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Mainland who can provide the most suitable future. / Los caballos están disponibles para aquellos que califican los adoptantes en Puerto Rico y Los Estados, que puede ofrecer el futuro más adecuado.
Given the geographical challenges as a retirement program in the Eastern Caribbean, we have designed a policy to give expedited review to potential adopters who have adopted from other equine aftercare programs requiring rigorous vetting and contracts, i.e. TAA-accredited organizations, and that are in compliance and good standing with those organizations.
In order to ensure good homes for our horses, we may, from time to time, assist with the cost of quarantine and air shipment of specific horses through fundraising efforts. Please don’t be deterred by shipping costs if you’re considering adopting from us.

WhyJoeWhy is a 2010 Indiana-bred Gelding that stands about 16.1. He raced 80 time on the U.S. mainland and in PR. He came to CTA 5/29/19 in poor condition. He still has a way to go, but has proven to be a true “diamond in the rough"!’
Loyalist is a 16.1hh, California-bred Gelding He retired to CTA in November 2018, He is a big guy with a big personality. He is limited to flat, non-athletic riding due to racing wear-and-tear, but would love a job. He likes other horses and people, and thoroughly enjoys turnout!
Proverbios is a 2015 Florida-bred Gelding. He stands 16hh, and has lots of chrome! He is lightly raced and retired sound for an athletic second career, though he’d also be great as a pleasure mount. He is a non-sweater and would do best in a more Northern climate.
Dallas Star is a 15.3hh, 2015 Kentucky-bred gelding. He retired from racing due to issues with an entrapped epiglottis. He is sound for a 2nd career, has no vices, and has lovely ground manners and disposition. He would do better is a more moderate environment.
DoubleTheThunder is a 2012 Indian-bred Gelding with 33-starts. He retired with some racing wear-and-tear, but is sound for a lower-level athletic 2nd career. He is sweet & pretty automatic to ride. We think he’d make a great beginner or kid’s/teen’s horse!
Que Tabagon is a 2017 Kentucky-bred Gelding with just 4-starts. He stands 16hh, and is expected to grow more. He really impressed us on his 1st ride as an OTTB. He has a great W-T-C & excellent temperment. He’ll make someone a special horse!
