"It is our responsibility as owners, tracks, breeders, trainers, jockeys, bloodstock agents, and anyone who has a stake in the game to take responsibility for the aftercare of these great animals who are the keystone of our sport."
-Past TAA Board President and Thoroughbred owner Jack Wolf.
Brook Hill Farm is proud to have been accredited through the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance for the many thoroughbreds that the rescue continues to rehabilitate and provided sanctuary for. According to TAA’s Code of Standards, accreditation status is determined after a site visit and a complete review of five areas; operations; education; horse health care management; facility standards and services; adoption policies and protocols. The TAA’s Code of Standards and accreditation process have been reviewed and approved by the American Humane Association and the American Association of Equine Practitioners.
