In recent years the focus has been in education and the Club instigated the Grooms Training Program which is used as a bench mark for the qualification for eligibility for entry into the Co-ops. The Club is funded by the generous donations of services by the Stallion Owners/Managers which are auctioned annually.  Read the Tribute to the Horse
