What is Au-delà des Pistes?

Launched in 2016, Au-Delà des Pistes is a non-profit charity, with Aliette Forien as the President and Marine Thevenet as the project manager.

The charity is animated by a selection of high profile professionals from the horse racing world taking places on the Board and Steering Committee. The main objectives are to:

  • Raise Awareness among horse fans and racing professionals about racehorse retraining.
  • Promote the thoroughbred as a versatile athlete, capable of adapting to new disciplines.
  • Endorse structures that ensure acceptable standards of aftercare for ex-racehorses.
  • Create links between current and future owners of ex-racehorses.
  • Facilitate the management and tracking of retrained racehorses.
  • Raise funds to finance the charity and our objectives.
  • Organise competitions in the equestrian world reserved for ex-racehorses.
