Our Mission is:
To acknowledge Professional Equine Grooms as skilled individuals in their respective discipline. To provide support, education and growth opportunities for Professional Equine Grooms.
To provide a membership opportunity that includes the option for health insurance.
Our Vision and Growth Plan is:
To create a community for Professional Equine Grooms which supports their short and long term career needs. To provide resources for employment, continuing education, and benefits. To assist Professional Equine Grooms in creating a well respected and skilled professional profile. Because we are in charge of turning the mud pie (pictured below) into the international superstar. And it's not easy!
This community will encompass Professional Equine Grooms across all of the equine disciplines, including, but not limited to Dressage, Hunter/Jumper, Eventing, Racing, Polo, Western Disciplines, Driving, Vaulting and Saddleseat. A Professional Equine Groom is defined as an individual working in a support position in an equine setting focusing on the day to day care of horses.
While our primary purpose is to support the professional development of an Equine Groom, we welcome Trainers, Owners, and Riders into our community. We can all learn from each other, and we are all here for the same reason, the horse.
