TERF Makeover Master Class

2019 Makeover Master Class

TiKMasterclassSponsored by Thoroughbred Education & Research Foundation (TERF), the 2020 Makeover Master Class will take place this fall as a free virtual event, featuring three trainers in three states with three recently-retired prospects as well as commentators to provide additional insight. The TERF Makeover Master Class will be presented virtually on www.tbmakeover.org and Retired Racehorse Project's Facebook page, and will include a live Q&A session with the participating trainers after the virtual premier.

A new wave of equestrian enthusiasts is trying Thoroughbreds for the first time or returning to the breed after decades away -- but getting started with a new off-track project can be overwhelming. The Makeover Master Class was conceived to give spectators a comprehensive look at what to consider when evaluating prospects and how to approach those early rides off the track.

The Format

Unique for 2020's virtual edition, the TERF Makeover Master Class will be presented as a single video session compiled from three individual training sessions that took place across the country in Maryland, Kentucky and Colorado.

The video will share the trainers' thoughts on their prospects, looking at conformation, way of going, and general attitude and impression. They'll then demonstrate their own individual approaches to a recently-retired horse's early training. Commentators at each location will help narrate the process.

A live Q&A session with as many of the participants as possible will take place after the video's premiere on Friday, October 9.
