Hey everyone,
For a project in one of my uni classes, I'm wondering if there are any horse rescues on Vancouver Island anymore? And if not, does anyone know of any in the lower mainland?
Thanks!

There is the Pipsqueak Group in Vancouver, they have mini's..........New Stride......Not sure if that's Standardbred or TB......Some of the others will have more info than I do........Good Luck with your project.

Pipsqueak Paddocks does a great job. New Stride is TB, Greener Pastures is Stb. I've also seen ads by/for Circle F Horse Rescue and Hayburner Heaven (I think that's what it's called). All of these are on the mainland.

New Stride is the TB agency, and Greener Pastures is the STB one. Pipsqueak Paddocks is minis, there may be one more but I can't think of it off the top of my head.

The IERRS up island is no more, but their "sister society" Wild Rose Equine Rescue (i think that's the name) is still going I think.

Good luck!

J&M Acres rescue is one of the most decent I've come across. They're in Maple Ridge.

My friend Vina Carlson at Mid-Island Equestrian Centre and Hearts 'n' Hooves Horse Rescue in Cedar is currently doing horse rescue.
