The applied research division of Holland College and the Atlantic Veterinary College in Prince Edward Island are active in supporting industry and community groups with various projects and are supporting the PEI Harness Racing Industry Association with this research. Holland College and the Atlantic Veterinary College have engaged MRSB Consulting Services to undertake consultations with the horse industry to examine models for transferring knowledge to industry participants on best practices in the breeding, care and training of horses and business management.

We are interested in hearing from participants in the standardbred horse industry in PEI as to your need for information to assist with breeding, care, and training of horses and business management. As you would be aware a strong and vibrant harness racing industry in any jurisdiction increases benefit to the industry as a whole. We would appreciate 5 -10 minutes of your time to hear from you in regards to the knowledge you would like to gain and the way in which you would like to receive that information. Information received will be compiled and combined for presentation. All individual responses will remain confidential to MRSB and only combined information will be shared in our report.

Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Brenda Wedge, Senior Consultant with MRSB Consulting Services at (902) 368-2025 or Brenda.wedge@mrsbgroup.com or Mike O’Brien, PEI Harness Racing representative at (902) 213-5546.
