Renaissance Rescue Ranch is located

on HWY 0 near Farmington, Missouri.
The rescue facility is home to more
than 60 retired thoroughbred horses
that were injured or not fast enough
in their racing careers. Some are as
young as 2 years old and some as old
as 30+. Our facility has horses from
all over the country. Most of our
horses are from the Fairmont
Racetrack which is located just east
of St. Louis, Missouri. We also have
a couple of Team Valor horses. The
ranch has some special needs horses,
including 2 blind horses. We are a no
kill facility that believes horses have
given so much to humans that we owe
them a second chance. To learn more
