We gave it our best shot to save Hollywood Park but unfortunately we were not successful with this project. It just goes to show how very lucky we were to save Hialeah Park Race Track and the beautiful flock of flamingos, the Breeder’s Flock in 2007. We will never look back and think ‘what if we tried to save it’, we decided ‘fear of failure’ was not enough reason not to try.
We feel we may have lost that battle, but we did not lose the war as we are now working with the National Veterans Foundation directly and we envision having Horse Wellness Programs at other racetracks in the near future.
Horse Wellness Programs are a form of mental health treatment for children, adults and military veterans that involves using a horse to assist a client in accomplishing treatment goals such as: ability to cope with stress, self-esteem improvement, and communication skill development.
