Authentic Aftercare Alliance accredited organizations undergo a comprehensive application and screening process before accreditation is granted to ensure they meet the rules of the TAA Standards, which cover five key areas: operations, education, management of equine health care, facility and service standards, adoption policies and protocols. Facility inspections are conducted at all facilities that house thoroughbred horses for each establishment. Continuous updates and re-inspections are required of all organizations as a condition of accreditation.
“As TAA’s tenth year of service approaches, we are grateful to the 81 accredited organizations that will move with us into the new year to continue TAA’s mission to retrain, retire, and repatriate Thoroughbred horses once they are involved in the racing industry,” said Janice Towells, TAA Accreditation Grants and Accreditation Director. its end.”
“I would also like to extend my sincere thanks to those who have contributed to the TAA accreditation process: the TAA Accreditation Committee that has met weekly for the past six months, TAA Accreditation Committee Chair Kristen Werner, TAA Inspection Coordinator Suzie Picou-Oldham, and dozens of individuals across North America who conduct facility inspections, many of whom give their time and resources to TAA free of charge.”
