HAPPA Yeehaa

Retraining of Racehorses raises funds from within the racing industry for the retraining and re-homing of vulnerable former racehorses.

Stunning former racehorse HAPPA Yeehaa transferred to the Burnley HAPPA centre at Shores Hey Farm, Briecliffe, in December.

Yeehaa stands at 16.2hh, is bright bay in colour and was born in 2002. He is situated on the front yard at the farm.

He has had a successful career out of racing and can turn his hoof to almost any discipline, having competed successfully in dressage, showjumping and cross country. Now in his teens he is looking to slow down a little.

Yeehaa is available for sponsorship and will be at the centre for a while before he is made available for re-homing later in the year.
