The California Thoroughbred Trainers, Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association and New York Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association have teamed up to provide a continuing education platform for Thoroughbred trainers and assistant trainers.
Horsemen U offers approved online CE webinars and issues CE certificates after a course and a short quiz have been completed. Trainers and assistant trainers can register, free of charge, and maintain their CE records in their account. The website for the platform is www.HorsemenU.com.
Continuing education has been adopted as one of the core best practices developed by the stakeholders involved in the Mid-Atlantic Strategic Plan to Reduce Equine Fatalities. CE requirements have been implemented in California, Delaware, Maryland, New York, and West Virginia. Pennsylvania and Virginia are in the process of adopting CE regulations.
