150 Free Courses – Register Now!

Ontario Racing is partnering with Equine Guelph to deliver 150 free ‘Gut Health & Colic Prevention’ online short courses to trainers, assistant trainers, and grooms in all three racing sectors in Ontario.

Racehorses are elite athletes required to perform at high levels of exertion and also face unique environmental and nutritional challenges. As a result, gut issues and colic are major concerns facing horse racing. Horse owners and trainers suffer significant economic losses due to colic in our industry.

This free short course on how to reduce the risk of colic will be extremely valuable to our industry members who are caring for these athletes. Not only will the course benefit the health of our racehorses, but will also benefit the industry as a whole.

The online course is practical – featuring respected experts from the racing industry as guest speakers. As well, we are offering the flexible three-week course in January because the racing industry has a bit more down-time in the winter months. Students in this course can choose to remain somewhat anonymous – having the option to be referred to as by first name only in peer discussion groups – with no other personal information being shared with the group.
