The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance's 2017 Accreditation Application is now available on its website, the organization announced Monday. Thoroughbred aftercare organizations interesting in applying for accreditation must do so by Apr. 15. Because the TAA has a two-year accreditation protocol, organizations that were accredited in 2015 will need to re-apply by that date. Applications are evaluated on five key areas: operations, education, horse health care management, facility standards and services, and adoption policies and protocols. Organizations that receive accreditation are eligible to receive financial grants from the TAA.
The application can be accessed online here.
