Dear Friends of Down the Stretch Ranch,

As you all are keenly aware, the coronavirus pandemic has turned the world upside down.  The safety and health of each of you is of great importance to me, and the entire Down the Stretch Ranch organization.  We will not be holding our annual golf tournament this year but look forward to returning to our tournament roots in 2021.

The DTSR Annual Golf Tournament is our biggest fundraiser and your generous support has made the difference in the lives of Veterans, their children, and our wonderful retired racehorses.

What Is It Like To Visit The Ranch?

Down The Stretch makes sure to tell each horse’s story.  When a veteran comes to Down The Stretch Ranch, race replays from the past are part of getting to know the selected runner.

For each new guest at the ranch, before any riding starts, the process begins in a round pen. A horse runs around for a while until it is comfortable with the guest.

If our guest and horse feel comfortable enough with one another, we give our guest the opportunity to ride the horse around the ranch and genuinely spend time with each other.

Using equine therapy, our incredible retired racehorses bring comfort and companionship to veterans of war. These horses effectively change the lives of American Veterans who suffer from a diverse range of disadvantages and disabilities. Read our veteran endorsements here.
