Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

Our goal is to accredit, inspect and award grants to approved aftercare organizations to retire, retrain and rehome Thoroughbreds using sustainable industry-wide funding.

Utilizing an extensive application and inspection process based on the TAA's Code of Standards, accreditation status is determined after a complete review of five areas: operations; education; horse health care management; facility standards and services; adoption policies and protocols.

Accreditation - through the accreditation process, the TAA in partnership with providers and supporters intends to offer consultation to aftercare organizations in their efforts to improve and to bring innovative practices to all providers.

Funding - The goal of the TAA is to create a sustainable funding mechanism derived from every touch point in a Thoroughbreds life including but not limited to breeding, sales, racing and other industry related fund sources.

Applications for accreditation have encouraged better business practices for the organizations and increased their adoptions and awareness for Thoroughbred aftercare. Thoroughbred industry participation continues to grow to support the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance.

The TAA has accredited 64 organization with 180 facilities in 25 states and 2 Canadian provinces and granted over $8.2 million to our accredited Thoroughbred aftercare organizations.

The TAA seeks to expand its awareness and funding from the entire Thoroughbred industry to support Thoroughbred aftercare.
