OnToAWinner are proud and privileged to have formed an association with New Beginnings and welcome them into our family as our nominated Racehorse Charity. The OnToAWinner family aims and commits to raising awareness and supporting the charity.
New Beginnings is a Community Interest Company which is a not for profit organisation.
The aim of New Beginnings is to provide a safe and supportive environment for former racehorses to adapt and learn new skills after they have finished their first career in racing. New Beginnings offer them a “Life past the Post”.
The company is run by Kevin Atkinson and Pam Hollingworth who are incredibly passionate about thoroughbreds and their welfare. They have both loved and been involved with horses for over 40 years. There are currently over 20 horses in care with New Beginnings, which includes legends such as Golden Hello, Mister McGoldrick, Red Wine, Advanced, Ginger’s Lad, Benbyas, Nasharra, Demolition and others not as well known, but just as worthy.
New Beginnings began work in February 2010 and since then have come a long way. New Beginnings have an equestrian yard at Hanging Grimston, Yorkshire. This Provides 37 acres of post and rail paddocks, stables, an outdoor ménage and a round pen, which allows the horses back into work in a safe and controlled environment.
Kevin and Pam say “New Beginnings is not a sanctuary, our intention is to re-train and re-home as many suitable former racers as we can. Our horses are ‘loaned’ to long term forever homes but will always return to New Beginnings if circumstances change, guaranteeing a secure future for these horses as they will never be sold”.
Look out for the New Beginnings team at a racecourse and be sure to stop and say hello!
