12yo Standardbred gelding    ~15.2hh


JJ is a sweet and sensitive guy looking for a place to call home. 
He was adopted from the program 6 years ago and returned for some behavioural concerns under saddle. 
JJ was used for back country riding and endurance riding, however he gets very anxious when horses pass him 
or when horses leave him. He does not really enjoy arena or structured work. 

JJ is a gem to be around in the barn, he will stand in the crossties for hours on end if asked to.
He loads and hauls, ties and baths. He is easy to work around in his stall or paddock. 
JJ gets along well with all the horses hes met, but does become attached quickly. 

We think JJ would make an excellent companion horse or a lovely pet for someone looking for a sweet natured horse to add to their herd. 
Light riding would be fine for JJ, with the possibility of more if someone has the time to invest in the work under saddle.

JJ is located at our foster farm in Mission, BC
His adoption fee is $650

Ross Ridge Fortune is a beautiful 13 year old mare standing at about 15.3hh. 
This classy girl raced a total of 190 times earning $298,970.  Fortune is broke to drive and has been exposed to many things during her career making her pretty fearless. 
She is very calm and easy to work with, she’s great in a herd and an easy keeper. 
Fortune has not been started under saddle yet but would make a really easy project for someone.

18 year old Standardbred gelding  ~15.3hh


Active Pass is a 18 year old gelding standing at a solid 15.3hh. 
This guy earned his keep during his race days; with a total of 136 life starts he racked in $281,820. 
Since retiring from racing he has been adopted through our program and then returned. Active Pass is a bit of a lost soul trying to find his place in this world. 
Active Pass has difficulty in a herd and would be best in a home where he can be kept separate from other horses. 
He’s a great trail horse, very solid & sound he has lots of miles under saddle. 
He would do best with a confident rider as he can test the riders experience level- he’s a smart horse!  Once a common ground is established he’s open to building a really great relationship. 
This guy trailers like a dream, take him camping, take him in the mountains- he’s not scared of anything he’s a war horse!

Actvepass 1

Buzz is a personable and outgoing guy, looking for a light/moderate riding or companion home due to a previous injury.
He is eager to explore and not phased by much. 

Buzz was adopted and returned, allowing him some time to rest and recover. He has returned with a whole new zest to be a riding horse.
Buzz recently went for his FIRST trail ride and led the entire 11km. He crossed bridges, streams and passed multiple horses. 
Buzz enjoyed his outing. He loads, hauls, ties and stands to be mounted with no problems. He is eager and confident under saddle. 

Buzz would enjoy a home that would allow him some outings and adventures. 
He can be a little dominant with other geldings when mares are around, but otherwise gets along well with horses.
