Veteran and Thoroughbred Advocate Tina Mott Joins Board of Directors Of Saratoga Warhorse

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Saratoga WarHorse, a not-for-profit organization which uses retired thoroughbred racehorses to work with service members and veterans who are suffering after experiencing trauma while in the military, announced the appointment of veteran and thoroughbred advocate Tina Mott to its Board of Directors.

A longtime supporter and volunteer with Saratoga WarHorse, Mott will work with the organization to further its mission of promoting the physical, mental and emotional health of veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress by providing a healing, equine assisted experience exclusively using retired thoroughbreds. 

Mott has more than 35 years of experience in the thoroughbred industry and is the wife of Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott of Mott Thoroughbred Stables. 

Since its inception in 2013, Saratoga WarHorse has helped over 1,300 military veterans and service members move past their trauma by partnering them with retired thoroughbred racehorses and providing a new treatment approach vastly different than equine therapy or any existing treatments.
