Sponsoring a horse can be a rewarding experience for anyone that does not have the space, time or means to care for a horse or any school interested in incorporating a horse into a fun lesson plan that includes math, reading and science.

The Gulfstream Park Thoroughbred After-Care Program has developed a curriculum for classrooms and works closely with farms to help groups sponsor a horse. For additional information on sponsoring a horse, e-mail david.joseph@gulfstreampark.com or call 954.658.7156.
