For centuries and across continents, Thoroughbreds have been legendary for their athletic performance. In addition to being champions on the racetrack, these amazing athletes have carried generations of Pony Clubbers to their first blue ribbons, and have brought glory to U.S. Equestrian Team riders by helping to earn Olympic medals. And even as horse racing and equestrian sport has evolved over the decades, off-the-track Thoroughbreds (OTTBs) have continued to prove themselves in the competitive arena and have even enjoyed a recent resurgence in popularity.
