How to Help


Helping by AdoptionGPtrailer

Standardbreds have long been over looked as a suitable riding horse and pleasure/competive driving horse after their harness racing careers. The breed is gaining popularity over the last few decades having a hardy body and sensible mind. Many hours of handling and driving have been put into most, if not all horses coming into the program while training down at the track. 

Horses are donated to our program by their racing connections to ensure responsible placement into a home that will continue their transition from racing to riding or driving. As a volunteer run organization, we put as many rides into these horses before adoption as we can- however almost all will need further education in their new discipline. 

Consider a Standardbred today!

Bottle Drive

Help support the horses in our program by dropping off your bottles at any EXPRESS Location 3

We have opened up a designated bottle drive account so that you can drop off any returnable bottles (cans, milk cartons, plastic bottles, glass bottles, etc.) and donate the proceeds of those returnables to Greener Pastures.  As a non-profit charity organization, we rely on donations to help care for the horses in our program.

With three easy steps you can help us out!
  1. Drop off your returnables at any Return-It Express location in British Columbia.
  2. Make sure your returnables are in a clear / transparent bag and are empty.
  3. Print a label at the Kiosk with our phone number: 604-613-2279 and stick it to your bag!
Return-It Express does all the sorting so no need to get your hands sticky!
Return-It express locations all across BC! For more information on location and hours of operation, check their website here:
