Feature Photo“The UHC has helped us with five mini stallions, which is amazing! Sadly, many of the minis that enter the action pipeline are studs, I guess because owners don’t want to spend the money, and the little ones are easy, even as stallions.”
Program Highlight

Somehow, through the flames, smoke, chaos and tears, an army of heroes emerged in California. Some were burned, some bruised, but all were relentless in aiding the struggling people and horses of the San Luis Rey Downs Fire.

Success Story

It was just another ordinary Tuesday in 2001 for Janet Rowe, owner of Saving Grace Equine Rescue in Bracebridge, Ontario. She was making one of her frequent trips to the Ontario Livestock Exchange in St. Jacobs, Ontario, to look for another horse in need to rescue, rehab and re-home.
