The Thoroughbred Education & Research Foundation (TERF) will provide a grant of $4,000 to Horsemen U, which promotes continuing education for Thoroughbred trainers and assistant trainers. The funds will cover the cost of Horsemen U's website for a full year.
“Education is the best investment for improving the lives of trainers, assistant trainers, and others in the equine industry,” said Dr. Jim Orsini, a trustee of TERF. “High-quality education of equine industry personnel results in improved health and welfare of the horse. Additionally, individuals that complete courses offered by Horsemen U can educate others by mentoring and serving as a role model to create a multiplier effect.”
