This week’s #ThoroughbredAftercareThursday story, in partnership with the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA), is a special one. Impressive John R. served as an equine-assisted therapy horse for 9 years at TAA-accredited Central Kentucky Riding for Hope (CKRH) before going blind in both eyes.

Two years after losing his vision, John is back to work, and we can't wait to see what this resilient OTTB will accomplish next. Click below to read more by J.J. Sillman about one of her favorite CKRH equine residents.
