Greener Pastures – BC Standardbred Horse Adoption Society is a non-profit organization founded in 2003. Here at Greener Pastures our goal is to find long term forever homes for retired race horses. We wish to accomplish this by giving these horses a solid foundation in their new careers and placing them into homes that are suitable for them as they begin their new life with their new families.
The Standardbred is an ideal recreational horse with a calm disposition,sensible mind and a friendly outlook! These are the attributes that have enabled Greener Pastures to adopt out over 50 horses per year. These numbers alone are testament to the suitability of the Standardbred as a riding horse.
"We adopted Brooklets Amazed in February 2018 and chose to call her Violet. She has been a wonderful addition to our family and she has become my daughter’s best friend, they have such a great connection and they make a great team. The adoption process was smooth and stress free and Violet was represented honestly and true to her temperament and nature, we adore her and couldn’t be happier with her or the adoption process. We wouldn’t hesitate to adopt through Greener Pastures again if we were looking for another equine family member."
