The Standardbred Equine Program (SEP) was established in 1996 to promote the use of Standardbreds in disciplines other than racing. Standardbreds prove day after day that there is nothing standard about them!

The SEP has partnered with national discipline organizations to establish breed awards and recognition for people that use their Standardbreds in non-racing activities.

Standardbred Pleasure Horse Organizations (SPHOs) are located across the country and promote their enthusiasm for transitioning ex-harness horses to pleasure and competitive riding and driving horses.
