What HBPA members are saying about our courses:

Renée Kierans, Thoroughbred Ambassador for Racing courses on The Horse Portal“The 3 online courses that I was involved in, as ambassador for the thoroughbreds, were all filled with valuable information that is “must have knowledge” if you’re dealing with race horses.  The guest experts were second-to-none as far as availability to answer questions in a timely manner, and their knowledge base was incredible.”
