The 2019 application for accreditation by the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance is now available on ThoroughbredAftercare.org. Thoroughbred aftercare nonprofits interested in applying must complete the application by the closing date of Apr. 1 at 6 p.m. ET. Since TAA accreditation is only granted for a specific period of time, organizations with accreditation status ending in 2019 that want to remain accredited need to re-apply.
“The TAA is extremely proud of the accreditation process and the organizations that reach this standard,” TAA operations consultant Stacie Clark Rogers said. “For aftercare organizations, TAA accreditation reflects the gold standard of care. For the Thoroughbred industry, TAA accreditation reflects due diligence and represents a good investment in Thoroughbred aftercare.”
Accreditation status is determined after a complete review of five key areas: operations, education, horse health care management, facility standards and services, and adoption policies and protocols.
In 2018, the TAA awarded more than $3 million to accredited organizations as grants earmarked specifically for equine care, totaling more than $13.8 million awarded since 2012.
