Final Furlong Graduate

Alarm Backstage

FINAL FURLONG is a non-profit 501(c)3 charity (Incorporated 4/01/09), created to establish a safe and secure environment for racehorse graduates of Niall Brennan Stables and it's clients upon completion of their racing careers.  

The goal of FINAL FURLONG is to find a caring home suitable to each horse‚Äôs ability: show, pleasure or simple retirement.   Upon arrival at FINAL FURLONG, a veterinarian will assess each horse and any infirmity or unsoundness will be treated.  The horse will then begin the "let down" process and spend a minimum of 60 days at our facility.  The horse has completed its transformation from racehorse to companion horse when it has become:
  •  relaxed
  •  physically sound
  •  carrying good condition and easy to maintain
  •  safe to handle

FINAL FURLONG will start the process of selecting a home once each horse has achieved this state.   Because each horse is a graduate of our program we will be very familiar with their attitudes, abilities, temperament and we will do our best to match horses to individuals so that everyone benefits from our program.  All horses will be free of charge to the approved adopting home.

FINAL FURLONG simply wants to give these horses, who have given so much, an opportunity to excel at another career. At the same time, owners and clients will have the peace of mind of retiring their horses with the knowledge that they will be given a loving home.  Those who donate a horse to the program are asked to make a one-time donation equivilant of one month's board at the racetrack.   
Final Furlong will assume ownership of the horse immediately and cover all the expenses involved from that point on.  

Donations to our program for the care and comfort of these horses are gratefully accepted

 Final Furlong also wishes to thank the following people for their continued support to our program.  Brookledge Horse Vans, Creech Horse Vans, The Sanctuary, Blacksmiths: Cole Connell  and  Steve Shepard.   We truly appreciate your expertise and kindness!


Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in our program.

I look forward to all of my training rides  on SAMPO as he tries to connect with you on the ground and has such a wonderful work ethic. He is smart, brave, well balanced, and is going "to go places" in the not so far future.
Heather Jenkins

"Every horse that I have adopted from Final Furlong has been such a treasure and they express a will to be successful in their new careers as hunters/jumpers but I feel that comes from the wonderful care that final furlong gives these horses who were blessed to have a second chance."
Adria Lehman

Marley is everything you said he was!  He has been extremely well behaved and very easy to handle.  He is like a big puppy! Thank you so much for everything, I think you have a wonderful program. 
Kristin Jungbluth

Indy has been an absolute gem to work with in everything we've done.  It has been a pleasure to have Indy and I can't thank you enough for what you do with the program!
