What's Down The Stretch Ranch?
Down The Stretch Ranch was co-founded in 2015 by Hall of Fame Trainer, Jerry Hollendorfer, his wife Janet, and Boone McCanna. The foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit thoroughbred race horse retirement facility which connects injured or retired racehorses with United States Veterans.
Moving forward in 2019
Down The Stretch Ranch is expanding their mission to utilize the ranch, horses, surrounding state lands and beautiful lake Roosevelt to help serve underprivileged children. Our focus will be to give the children a great outdoor experience.
They will learn the responsibility of caring for horses and horsemanship skills. Through veteran assisted leadership; camping, hiking and fishing fishing experiences will be offered.
We all have a connection to veterans. If I can give something back to the horses and to the people who fight for me to walk around here, then I’m happy to do that. These people go out there and put their lives on the line for me, and I’m astounded people do that.Jerry Hollendorfer
Down The Stretch Ranch would be nothing without our sponsors! We greatly appreciate donations and the kind support of people like you. Please help us provide a safe sanctuary for these horses. Your donations will help create and foster new relationships between our horses and deserving veterans.
