About US

Read about Jan and her OTTBs in Off-Track Thoroughbred magazine!

Realizing the need to help “Off-The-Track Thoroughbreds” find second careers, she founded the Thoroughbred Horse Show Association, one of the first organizations to run exclusive retired Thoroughbred horse shows for these equine athletes to get show experience to help them start their second careers.

Residing at The Horse Lodge are two of Jan’s retired Thoroughbreds. When they are not grazing in the big green pasture, or eating carrots, they are pulling a carriage.  Jan is the only person competing in combined driving events with a pair of retired Thoroughbreds.

In designing The Horse Lodge, Jan wanted the kind of facility for horses needing “time”, in order to get back to racing or to be prepared for a happy and productive career off the racetrack.  

Owner Jan Roehl, has worked with Thoroughbreds in racing and retraining for second careers for over 40 years.

Jan gradated from Morven Park International Equestrian Instute where she trained with Major John Lynch, 6 time Olympic coach, then with Karl Mikolka who is in the USDF Hall of Fame. She has a strong back ground in classical riding, eventing and dressage and loves passing that on to her students who build a strong riding foundation from a balanced seat.

We help students find the right OTTB for them, working students are always welcome.

Jan makes sure all horse get the quality care they need. And MORE!
