Welcome to Mereworth Farm.
Now owned by The Susan S. Donaldson Foundation (a 501(c)(3) nonprofit), Mereworth Farm was once a famous breeding and racing operation owned by three generations of the Salmon Family. The third generation, Susan Salmon Donaldson, so loved the industry and the great athletes themselves that, upon her death in 2011, she left the farm to the Foundation she created to provide equine aftercare.
Mereworth Farm is comprised of 1,200 acres in Fayette and Scott Counties, Kentucky, and is home to 175 equine residents of various breeds, though most of the horses are Thoroughbreds. We believe horses are athletes and if it is possible to rehabilitate and retrain a horse, then that horse needs to be trained for its first, second or even third career. If, however, retraining is not possible due to injury, infirmity or age, then the horse should have a place for retirement. Mereworth Farm provides such a place.
