You can help us improve lives of humans and horses!

The Elite Program suports efforts to improve the welfare and safety of all horses with emphasis on racehorses, active and retired. Training a groom to recognize early warning signs of colic or subtle indications of an impending injury provides a direct  benefit to those horses by enabling treatment that prevents more serious and even life threatening illness or injury.

These important members of a racing team increase the odds of a horse having a long and sound racing career. READ MORE
