EquiPepper was born from Ruby’s love of Thoroughbreds and her desire to improve the reputation of Ex Racehorses. While studying Equine Science at University Ruby purchased her first ex racehorse and documented her progress retraining Scottie from racehorse to riding horse. This online diary became a university project and then evolved into EquiPepper, an award-winning Equine Blog dedicated to racehorse retraining.
