Giving off-the-track thoroughbreds a second wind in the world of Eventing

Winswept Stables has been retraining off-the-track thoroughbreds (OTTBs) for 15 years and counting. Winswept riders, Chase and Macy Beach competed their OTTBs Lucky Bucky and Chasing Moonlight (respectively) at the North American Youth Championships (formally NAJYRC). The Winswept team has competed OTTBs at the American Eventing Championships, USPC Championships, USEA Area 2 Championships, numerous international competitions, and many Area 2 USEA horse trials. 2016 was an exciting year for owner, Dawn Beach, and her students Macy Beach and Claire Lokken as they were accepted to compete in the Retired Racehorse Project's Thoroughbred Makeover in Kentucky. All riders made a great turnout with Dawn placing 8th in Dressage, Macy 8th in Eventing, and Claire 8th in showjumping.

"Lucky Bucky was his race name and we kept it as his show name. I bought him as a 6-year-old for Chase Beach to transition onto as he outgrew his pony. Together they developed and learned. They moved up the levels with their sights on the big prize, qualifying for the North American Junior Young Rider Championships. Two years in a row Chase and Bucky competed at this prestigious event before handing the reins over to his little sister Macy Beach. He will forever be loved and appreciated for his good nature and easy-going manner, allowing my kids the opportunity to experience what few get to and for keeping that thoroughbred part of himself by always making time with ease."

"Chasing Moonlight ran 33 starts earning over $150,000. I adopted Chase as an 8-year-old to train and bring up the levels in Eventing. He had minimal dressage training under his belt with no experience jumping. We struggled with earning competitive dressage scores and keeping the rails up in show jumping. One aspect we never struggled with: Cross country. I can't help myself from smiling ear to ear as I gallop around course with this horse. His bravery and stamina made moving up the levels easy. I will be forever indebted to this horse for making my dreams come true. He brought me to international competitions, the North American Youth Championships, and has given me the privilege of competing at the upper levels. The struggles associated with bringing along an untrained thoroughbred have made our journey and successes all the more rewarding. Chase will forever and always be my heart horse."
