Au-Delà des Pistes, promotes the retraining of racehorses

Launched in 2016, Au-Delà Des Pistes is the official French charity for the promotion of retraining racehorses that is endorsed by France Galop.

Presided by Aliette Forien, with Marine Thevenet as the project manager, Au-Delà des Pistes aims to raise the awareness of the versatility of ex-racehorses in their secondary careers. Retraining is part of an ongoing process to ensure thoroughbred welfare continues throughout its lifetime.
