Welcome to Exracers.com

Member Spotlight

Hi, my name is Claire. My Exracer moniker, Niaru, is the name of my very first horse, a spirited Selle Français mare named by her breeder after a small African village. I was born and raised in France, but I’ve been in the US for a long time now, and a member of Exracers since its very beginnings.
A good friend of mine introduced me to off track thoroughbreds years ago after I lost my beloved little Morgan mare (my first “American” horse!) and I never looked back. I bought my current mare, Your So Charming aka Charm, at the racetrack in Boston when she was 4 years old. She is a very personable, athletic and quirky little mare who regularly makes me laugh with her antics, and who patiently bore my shortcomings as a “race horse re-trainer”!
My own background is in traditional English riding as taught by the military in France (dressage, jumping, Horsemanship). I showed in dressage, jumping and Combined Training both in France and in the US, but due to budget and family constraints regular showing is now on the back burner. However, in the US I discovered Hunter Paces and that is what Charm and I enjoy doing the most, along with dressage and jumping lessons (because I want to keep learning), cross country schooling, and riding on the beach! The Exracers community has been a witness of our ups and downs and progress from the very start, and is a great place to share our experiences with our Ottbs!



Our purpose is to promote awareness of retraining Exracers 
into new careers after their racing days are over.

Most of the action takes place in our forums, where we discuss training tips and questions, as well as non-exracer topics. You don't have to own an exracer to join in the discussion. Anyone is welcome!

Be sure to check out our Exracers map to see if we have an Exracer member near you. And pop into the virtual Stable, to read some of our Exracer success stories.
