The Thoroughbred Education and Research Foundation (TERF) is pleased to award $4,000 to Horsemen U to support Horsemen U’s continuing education platform for a full year. The online platform was launched to assist trainers, assistant trainers, and others in the equine industry with continuing education requirements.

The California Thoroughbred Trainers (CTT), Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association (MTHA), and New York Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association (NYTHA) teamed up to start Horsemen U because education is the best investment for improving the equine industry. With better educated equine industry personnel comes better health and welfare for the horse. Those who complete Horsemen U courses are better equipped to educate and mentor others, thereby creating a multiplier effect.

TERF’s grants reflect the values set forth by founders Herb and Ellen Moelis. TERF’s current Board, includes Co-Chairs Kathleen Anderson DVM and James Orsini DVM, Lynn Cassimeris, Ph.D. Margaret H. Duprey, Gretchen and Roy Jackson, Katelyn Jackson, Ellen and Herb Moelis, Wendy Moon, Anita Motion, Scott Palmer VMD, Josh Pons and Lucy Zungailia.
