Performance Standardbreds was established in 1990 by a few Standardbred enthusiasts who realized the animal’s enormous potential use for riding or driving. As an organization our focus is and always has been to support and promote the Standardbred horse and those that are lucky enough to own them.   The Standardbred is one of the most versatile breeds by far.  Did you know that by age three, there are many already starting their second careers?  Throughout their early years, the foundation was established and now it’s onwards and upwards for these athletic, sturdy, sensible, beautiful  horses who's hearts are (virtually)bigger than their bodies.  Standardbreds  participate in  jumping, dressage, endurance and competitive trail,  just to name a few – there really is no limit to what you or they can accomplish together. Performance Standardbreds promotes the breed in a new and positive light. Recognizing the potential and the need to give these horses,  that are no longer able to race,  new careers

Featured Placement Horse
Soverato aka Saul

Saul entered our program in Aug. 2022 directly from the track. He was initially purchased as the Standardbred Racing Club candidate  by Century Downs for race fans to participate in this syndicated race horse owner program.

Unfortunately Saul was not showing enough success to continue and the decision was made to rehome him for a second career.  Thankfully our program was chosen to ensure he would be placed appropriately .

Lucky for us we had the perfect home waiting in the wings !  Follow Saul and his journey onward ...

First day of freedom!
