Horseman Labor Solutions Continues to Support Horsemen as a Sponsor of National HBPA
According to National HBPA President and Chairman Joe Santanna, “We are excited for the continued support of National HBPA’s horsemen and women by Horseman Labor Solutions. We greatly value their support of our organization and its members, as well as the keen insight into the immigration arena that they bring to the table. Horseman Labor Solutions knows the ever-changing immigration laws and statutes and the horse racing industry, and they are an excellent resource for the HBPA and our horsemen who need help in this area.”
With nearly two decades of immigration legal experience, Horseman Labor Solutions is bringing workers as grooms, hot walkers, and other positions for trainers throughout the United States.
“We are delighted to be one sponsor for the National HBPA,” said HLS Co-Owner and Director of Operations Briian Newhouse-Velie.
Newhouse-Velie continued, “We look forward to working with the National HBPA and its affiliates and some of the best trainers in the business. Horseman Labor Solutions provides solutions for employers in the chronically understaffed horse and equine industries. Our methodologies provide a turnkey package to trainers and HBPA affiliates to assist in the often complex process. Our mission
is to provide horse racing and equestrian employers with a range of options all designed to provide the highest quality workforce available, including H2B, P1 and P1S visas. Additionally, P1 visas provide a platform upon which beneficiaries can petition for permanent residence.
“Our services assist the horsemen in individually navigating through the legal procedure involved in bringing workers for a temporary period. Our comprehensive temporary labor solutions often include legal, taxation, workers’ compensation, as well as other administrative compliance issues such as clearing the legal visa, consular checks, and transportation to the United States.”
“Our immigration experience allows us to offer a suite of solutions to horsemen’s staffing needs,” said William Velie, CEO of HLS. “Our investment in the HBPA demonstrates our long-term commitment to the horse industry. We look forward to participating and presenting at future conferences.”
William Velie and Briian Newhouse-Velie, both Oklahoma natives, are graduates of the University of Oklahoma. William attended the University of Oklahoma Law School, and Briian graduated with a Master’s Degree in Leadership Administration. Williams has practiced immigration law across the United States for nearly two decades and has a wide range of experience with employment-based immigration, with a focus on H2B visas. Velie has secured the certification by the United States Department of Labor of between three and five thousand H2B visas annually for the past five years.
