HorsemenU - Your Online Continuing Education Resource

The Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association and the California Thoroughbred Trainers have partnered to create a website to assist owners and trainers in complying with new Continuing Education (CE) requirements. The website, Horsemen U, provides CE courses and, upon completion of a webinar and a brief quiz, a Certificate verifying the number of CE hours earned for each course.

Under HISA regulations, owners are required to complete two hours and trainers and assistant trainers are required to complete four hours of CE each year. There are currently 29 courses available on Horsemen U, with topics ranging from PET Scans to Equine Wearable Technology to Avoiding the "One Last Race" Syndrome.

We invite you to go to the website,, to register for an account and browse the courses available. Owners, trainers and assistant trainers can take the required hours of CE and store their Certificates all in one place, in the event they need documentation of compliance with the Continuing Education regulation.

“This year’s Championship Meet will continue Gulfstream’s tradition of hosting many of the top horses, horsemen and women, jockeys from around the world, and some of the sport’s most spectacular events,” said Aidan Butler, 1/ST RACING. “With races like the Pegasus World Cup Invitational, Florida Derby, Fountain of Youth and Gulfstream Park Oaks – along with the opening of Gulfstream’s new world-class turf course – we believe this winter season will be one of the sport’s most anticipated and popular meets.”
