Many former racehorses go on to have varied and interesting second careers in a wide range of equine activities. A select few have now started to find new friends on the social media website Facebook.
Pippa Boyle, the wife of Epsom trainer Jim Boyle, has created a Facebook page dedicated to their former racehorses. The site is full of photographs, videos and updates showing the horses enjoying an enormous variety of pursuits in new homes around the country. The site has over 4,500 “Likes” and is proving a great way for people to keep up with news and information about the horses that followed so avidly during on the racecourse.
