BEYOND THE FINISH LINE, Stories of Ex-Racehorses
In BEYOND THE FINISH LINE, local New Jersey author Spiotta-DiMare chronicles the lives of retired racehorses living in the Garden State with their new families.
The ex-racehorses lives are as varied as their owners. Thirteen are currently in the employ of the Mounted Police in the City of Newark. All were adopted through the Standardbred Retirement Foundation. The police department maintains a facility with 18 box stalls, indoor and outdoor riding rings and their own farrier with a shop in the barn to care for the horses.
Ms. Spiotta-DiMare's lifelong love of horses shines through the pages of this coffee table book that will delight the horse enthusiasts on your Christmas list!
