This Web site was created to tell the stories of the Off-theTrack Thoroughbreds Bits & Bytes Farm has sold. The Mission of Bits & Bytes Farm is to help sellers (of Thoroughbred race horses for sale) to find buyers who have the ability to transition these horses to new careers. We offer assistance and guidance to make sure the horses we sell are successfully placed. Our Success Stories are proof that Thoroughbred race horses make great sport horses and family members when their racing careers are over.

When a horse is purchased with the assistance of Bits & Bytes Farm, we require the new owners to stay in touch and provide us with updates. These updates are posted on our Success Stories pages so that the sellers of the horses know that their horses are doing well and have not gone back to racing or been slaughtered. The sellers care about these wonderful Thoroughbreds and they too enjoy reading about their horses' successful new careers. They often call or e-mail to thank us for finding a home for a horse they bred or trained.

Tillo Loves Trail Riding & Jumping

Hello, I wanted to give you an update on your little horse, Tillo.  We have had a pretty good summer…his dressage is really coming along, he seems amenable to the stadium jumping, cross country needs some more work as he gets pretty excited, and he loves trail riding…very brave and walks right out.  He’s very…

My Isabell is a grey Thoroughbred horse for sale

Grey Thoroughbred Horse For Sale – My Isabell- SOLD!

My Isabell is a gorgeous horse with loads of potential. When I purchased Izzy I was a stay at home mom and thought I would have plenty of time to work with her, but I have had to go back to work full time and sadly that means she is not getting worked much at all. Izzy is incredibly smart and sensitive with a great work ethic. She likes to be out doing things and learning and I just don’t have the time to give her what she needs. I would love to see her go to someone who will put her in a regular program where she will be mentally and physically stimulated.

Breaking Free one week off-the-track

One Week Update for “Freeby”

Breaking Free aka “Freeby” has come along so quickly already. He is straighter, more confirmed in the connection, and the canter improves each ride in terms of balance and we almost have a proper transition already. He is also hacking out and trotting ground poles and exercises in my field at home.

Knight Villain - Sixth Anniversary photo

Gentle Brave Knight Villain

Sixth Year Anniversary update for Knight Villain. He’s sound, whole, happy, fat, and loving his life as a full time trail buddy. He’s kind and gentle with everyone, loves to give “pony rides” to visiting kiddies, yet still turns it on for me out on the galloping track in true race horse fashion. I think he’ll never forget he’s a champion.

My Isabell

My Isabell’s owner’s first ride on her off-the-track Thoroughbred race horse was bareback! Now she is sadly offered for sale. Read the story . . .
