The NSW Harness Rehoming Off The Track series is to promote Standardbreds as Pleasure Horses upon their retirement from their traditional role of Harness Racing. This will be the Fifth Series run in New South Wales and focuses on the transition made from Harness Racing into show horse for Standardbreds. NSW Harness Rehoming are a part of Harness Racing New South Wales and are committed to the welfare of our Standardbred horses, before, during and after their racing life.  We are extremely excited to continue promoting this series with NSW Harness Rehoming and Harness Racing New South Wales  promoting the breed in the broader equestrian community.

The Standardbred Pleasure and Performance Horse Association of New South Wales are honoured to have a close working relationship with Harness Racing New South Wales for numerous projects since 2016 promoting Life After Racing, including the Harness Racing New South Wales Off The Track Series. Now working alongside NSW Harness Rehoming it has allowed the strength of the two Companies to ensure that the standardbreds will be taken care of during and after racing.
