The Thoroughbred Education and Research Foundation (TERF) is pleased to award the Retired Racehorse Project (RRP) $5,000 to be used for educational purposes.
RRP’s mission is to facilitate placement of Thoroughbred ex-racehorses in second careers by increasing demand for them in the equestrian marketplace and educating equestrians to provide the training that secures their future. The driving force behind everything RRP does is educating the public, especially equestrians and equine enthusiasts, about the potential and versatility of off-track Thoroughbreds as riding and competition horses. RRP does this through their popular Thoroughbred Makeover and National Symposium.
In 2018, TERF generously awarded RRP with a $20,000 grant that supported their expanded 4-day model of the Thoroughbred Makeover and National Symposium, increased RRP presence at equine events throughout the U.S., and helped create the popular “Ask a Trainer Anything” feature, in which a panel of experts responded to training questions. In 2019, TERF was kind enough to offer the RRP a grant of $5,000 to be put toward the Makeover, followed by 2020 and 2021 where they were once again rewarded $5,000 in grants.
In alignment with their mission to support and promote equine education by supporting organizations that are educating the public on the proper care of horses, TERF continues to offer their financial assistance in 2022.
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, Margaret H. Duprey, Gretchen and
Roy Jackson, Ellen Moelis, Wendy Moon, Anita Motion, Scott Palmer VMD, Josh Pons, Lucy Zungailia, Katelyn Jackson, and Lynn Cassimeris, Ph.D.
