About Our Rescue Group:

The BC Standardbred Horse Adoption Society was founded in 2003, to date we have placed over 250 retired Standardbred Racehorses into pleasure homes. We are not a horse rescue, we are the
trainers, grooms, drivers, owners, breeders, adoptors, racetrack operator and caretakers of
these racehorses, that is who founded the program and the reason we founded Greener Pastures was to take care of the horses that enable us to earn our livelihoods, because we care about them.

Our Adoption Process:

We re-train and re-home retired Standardbred Racehorses into pleasure homes. As such, we do have an adoption process, starting with an adoption application which includes references, then a meeting with the program co-ordinator and the horse, followed by the actual adoption which includes a nominal fee and the signing of an adoption agreement outlining the care expected and the responsibilities of the adoptor.

Why should you adopt?

horses can make wonderful pets, and rather than buying a horse for sale or finding a horse breeder, adopting a horse from an animal shelter or rescue organization is the perfect way to add a horse to your family. Keep in mind, there is a lot you will need to know when you provide a home for a horse. You will need to learn what to feed them, how much exercise or attention your horse needs, and many other important things about how to house and care for a horse. There are different types of horses including Andalusian, Appaloosa, Appendix, Arabian, Belgian, Clydesdale, Curly Horse, Donkey/Mule/Burro/Hinny, Draft, Friesian, Gaited, Grade, Gypsy Vanner, Haflinger, Lipizzaner, Miniature, Missouri Foxtrotter, Morgan, Mustang, Norwegian Fjord, Paint/Pinto, Palomino, Paso Fino, Percheron, Peruvian Paso, Pony - Chincoteague, Pony - Connemara, Pony - Dales, Pony - Dartmoor, Pony - Fell, Pony - New Forest, Pony - Other, Pony - Shetland, Pony - Welsh, Pony - of America, Quarterhorse, Rocky Mountain, Saddlebred, Standardbred, Tennessee Walking Horse, Thoroughbred, Trakhener, and Warmblood.
