The Elite Program suports efforts to improve the welfare and safety of all horses with emphasis on racehorses, active and retired. Training a groom to recognize early warning signs of colic or subtle indications of an impending injury provides a direct  benefit to those horses by enabling treatment that prevents more serious and even life threatening illness or injury.
