Remember Me Rescue is a non profit horse rescue organization formed by Dallas and Donna Keen to assist retired and injured racehorses after their careers at the track are over. We accept, rehabilitate, and retrain exracehorses with the hopes of finding them new homes with responsible owners.
WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT We rely totally on donations from horse lovers, horse breeders and racing fans alike. Please consider donating to our continuing efforts to place these horses with new families.
For more information on donations or adoptions please email us at
These beautiful horses are currently available for adoption or need sponsors. Please go to the
page for more information on how to adopt or what you can do to help us help them find a new home.
Thoroughbreds make wonderful trail companions, lesson horses, mounted patrol horses, jumping or dressage horses. They can be retrained for nearly anything. Most of the horses in our program have been through thorough desensitization and are ridden regularly. Please email Donna at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information
REMEMBER ME RESCUE TO BUILD MOUNTED PATROL TRAINING COURSE
We are currently building our mounted patrol training course at Remember Me Racehorse Rescue where many of the horses donated to our program are being retrained to become qualified for mounted patrol, police, and search and rescue careers.
We are looking for obstacle sponsors to help complete our course. For a $1000 donation we will put your name, business or silks on the obstacle. Show your support for our program by sponsoring a training obstacle and help us retrain retired racehorse for new careers.
Obstacle Sponsorships to date are
Carmen and Texas Treat
Adopting Texas Treat was the best thing I've ever done! He has been my best horse so far! He is willing to do anything I ask of him and is so sweet natured. He has had no health or training problems. If I was going to get another horse it would be from remember me rescue. They are a wonderful foundation. :) I want to thank them for what they do.
We couldn't do this without the generosity of horse lovers. Please consider joining the mission to help rehabilitate and retrain these great athletes by making a donation to their care. In 2011 Remember Me Racehorse Rescue plans to start training some of the retired racehorses for mounted patrol careers and will place them mounted patrol, police, and sheriff departments all over the United States. But to do this we need your help. Please consider making a tax deductible contribution to Remember Me to help us in our mission to place retired racehorses in new homes.
Yammi arrived at RMR very thin on May 18, 2009. His owner said he couldn't afford the expensive he needed to stay in a healthy condition. Yammi had major problems. His teeth were in terrible condition. The bottom molars were going through the top gum and one bottom front tooth was going straight out of his lip. His hooves were actually starting to turn loose of the foot from malnutrition. In 2 months and and with lots of help from loving donors Yammi has been fully restored to a healthy condition. His hooves have grown and he has put on much needed weight. He is now fat and slick with tons of personality. We are even riding him bareback and bridle-less now. Yammi's care is ongoing although he is in great shape he will be hard to place in a new home due to his age. Any donation towards his care will be very much appreciated. You can donate through paypal or send us your tax deductible donation by snail mail. We appreciate all of your help, we couldn't help old guys like him without donations to keep our program going.
"Each and every horse I rode in my career helped make my career. Each one meant something to me, whether it was a low level claimer or a Derby winner. Every horse deserves a happy life at the end of their racing career. Unfortunately, most don't get one. Remember Me Rescue can make a difference by giving horses the happy life they deserve after their racing career."

Volunteer at Remember Me Rescue
We are currently looking for volunteer grooms to help care for our horses. Because these horses are off the track and are sometimes a handful we prefer you have experience working with horses to be considered for the volunteer groom position. We are also looking for people with show or jumping experience to exercise and help retrain the rescue horses. Please contact Donna Keen at 817-689-1214 if you would like to volunteer.

Dallas and Donna Keen Founders of Remember Me Rescue
Dallas Keen has been working with thoroughbred racehorses since he was a child. He is a third generation horse trainer originally from Colorado where his father and mother operated a thoroughbred farm and training facility. Dallas started galloping racehorses at the age of 7 and by age 9 he was placed on the payroll. After high school Dallas moved to Texas and started his own horse training business where he not only worked with racehorses but specialized in breaking problem horses that no one else could break. Needless to say he has dedicated his whole life to the horse industry and loves horses.
Donna Keen also started working with horses at a young age. Although neither of her parents were involved in the horse industry, Donna was set on making a career working with horses. She has been breaking and training horses since 1985 and has training in almost every discipline. Donna started training thoroughbred racehorses in 1992 now she and Dallas have successfully raised and trained many thoroughbred winners.
In the last few years the need to place retired horses has weighed heavy on their hearts. In 2004 Dallas and Donna started small, rescuing and placing a few horses a year. Since then they have successfully placed over 60 horses in new homes around the country.
Remember Me Rescue got it's start in 2008 which will allow the Keens to help more horses than ever. With the ability to accept donations for the care, rehabilitation and retraining of exracers Dallas and Donna with the help of many others will make a difference in the lives of hundreds of horses.
