Welcome to HEROS Charity

Creating new opportunities for ex-racehorses and young people in our bespoke retraining and education programmes

Promoting Welfare, Fulfilling Potential, Creating Bright Futures

HEROS Charity has been in operation since 2006. The Charity began with a primary focus on ex-racehorse re-training and re-homing. Having a life-time working in racing, Grace Muir recognised the potential these horses had for a change of career when their racing days were over.

However, in addition to a wide range of work associated with horses from “cradle to grave”, HEROS now also provide a range of education and training including; alternative to school placements for students from 11 – 16 years old and courses for post 16yo learning. HEROS specialises in engaging SEN students and those who are struggling in mainstream education. Following our programmes we find young people progress towards the workplace having found “their authentic self” at HEROS Charity. With support from The Racing Foundation and our many other partners, HEROS is proud of the individual care offered to both the horses and the students here.

HEROS is hugely grateful to all our sponsors, donors, individuals, corporate bodies and to the racing industry for all the support they give us. We appreciate our supporters who help us to fundraise in order to expand and continue the great work we are proud to be doing. HEROS Charity could not continue without help this help.


We could not continue our valuable work without the support of our many friends and donors, including corporate sponsors. Without their support many HEROS Charity fundraising events would not be possible; we are grateful to our sponsors for the opportunity their support provides in enabling us to take our fundraising activities to a wider audience.
