October 26, 2021

Guelph, ON – October, 26, 2021 – Two passionate racehorse caretakers in Ontario will once again have the chance to further their skills with Equine Guelph’s tuition awards program. It has been running since 2016, thanks to the generosity of both the L’Heureux and Stocks families who set up memorial awards for future ambassadors of Ontario’s racing industry. The deadline to apply is November, 30, 2021.

Selected for their love of horses, commitment to their welfare and desire to learn, both winners will receive two online courses through Equine Guelph valued at $549 each (Certificates are available in Equine Science, Equine Welfare and Equine Business – six courses complete the certificate).

“Hundreds of Ontario Racing industry members have discovered ways to optimize the health and performance of their racehorses by taking online short courses through,” says Equine Guelph director, Gayle Ecker. “For those ready to take that learning to the next level, the 12-week online university-accredited courses, are a wonderful opportunity.” One of the most popular courses among our tuition award winners has been Exercise Physiology.  “Knowledge acquired in Equine Guelph online courses has opened doors for me in the industry,” says, Standardbred breeder, and past recipient of both awards, Cameron Lago.
