Launched in 2016 at Deauville, and organised in partnership with France Galop, Au-Delà des Pistes hosts their Journées de la Reconversion des Chevaux de Courses (JRCCs) with the objective of promoting thoroughbreds as versatile equestrian athletes, capable of adapting to a wide range of equestrian disciplines following their racing careers. We believe it is important to show the public what efforts are being made to ensure thoroughbreds have long, happy, active lives, and to create a network between retrainers and the racing community.
These JRCCs are an opportunity for horse-lovers from across the spectrum to get together to admire the thoroughbred in all his many guises: racehorse, sports horse, therapy horse, and even get close to the retired champions who are still being lovingly cared for despite no longer being in the limelight.
HAVE YOU GOT A GOOD STORY TO TELL? DO YOU WANT TO BE INVOLVED?
We are recruiting! We hosted a Parade of Champions last year in Deauville and we are looking for former Champions to take part in the Chantilly event. These don’t have to be racecourse Champions; they could be thoroughbreds who did not excel on the racetrack but are now excelling in a second career. We already have the great Cirrus Des Aigles confirmed for this parade.
We are also seeking volunteers to help on the day, as well as sponsors who may wish to get involved in supporting a great cause.
In partnership with France Galop, we hope to put on an event that will really show the wider racing public how seriously we take welfare at all stages of a horse’s life. Au-Delà des Pistes is committed to promoting the lifetime care of thoroughbreds, focusing particularly on aftercare and successfully transitioning racehorses into second careers. We hope you show your support for Au-Delà des Pistes by attending this race day and please do come to see us at our informational stand, which will be located next to the main stand, around the demonstration ring.
If you require further information or think you could be of any help, please don’t hesitate to contact our Project
