Massive props are in order to the myriads of people who have worked tirelessly to pull off one of the biggest events promoting off-track Thoroughbreds in the world. The 2019 Thoroughbred Makeover is in full swing at the Kentucky Horse Park this week, and OTTBs are showing off their newly acquired training in various disciplines ranging from western disciplines, polo and field hunter to the traditional Olympic trifecta of dressage, show jumping and — our favorite around these parts — eventing.

If you’re looking for inspiration in working with your own Thoroughbred or if you’re hoping to compete at the Makeover one year, you’ll want to follow along with the Retired Racehorse Project on Facebook. Their social media team is hard at work bring us coverage from the event — take a look at a few of the OTTBs competing this week. If you’re unable to attend, be sure to catch the Finale live stream on the USEF Network this Saturday as the top scoring horses will battle it out for the crown of Thoroughbred Makeover Champion.
