Groom one  
is a unique program introducing students to employment in the horse industry by blending classroom experience, online learning and a hands-on work placement. Employers are looking for safety skills and a good foundation of horse knowledge akin to those gained through Equine Guelph’s comprehensive Groom One program. Employers from the Quarter horse racing program actively participate as pathway mentors.

To find out more about program subsidies please visit: www.ontarioracingcommission.ca. Groom One participants can also source their own employment options opening up opportunities tailored to their horse industry career aspirations in the discipline of their choice.
Industry professional   Doug Nash comments, “In my view, the Groom One Program provides the basics for a solid foundation in Horse Handling Skills, Nutrition, Conformation, Health and Safety, the Environment. It also passes on knowledge gained from the latest research and technology as it is applied daily in the Horse Industry regardless of breed or discipline therefore providing potential employers with skilled, knowledgeable people that would be an asset to any Equine operation!”
