Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance
Accredits B.C.’s New Stride Thoroughbred
Adoption Society


On December 9, 2013 , the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance announced that New Stride Thoroughbred Adoption Society, has now been granted accreditation as an aftercare facility. We are one of the two Canadian adoption societies granted this status.

New Stride’s volunteers work hard at  retraining our Thoroughbreds and finding them the best possible new homes.

Since 2002 New Stride has found homes for over 120 former Thoroughbred race horses. Thanks to our donors and volunteers, New Stride has helped these racehorses enjoy happy second careers.

Our Philosophy

We believe in the value of the Thoroughbred racehorse as an athlete and a companion. We strive to add value to these wonderful equines so they may embark on exciting new careers after racing. We are not a rescue society; we are an adoption society. New Stride has placed over 120 horses in new homes since our beginnings in 2002. We are proud of the Pedigree of our horses and believe this is what makes them special and deserving of a second career. We volunteer through re-training, re-habilitation, education and the promotion of responsible ownership at all levels. Thank you for joining us!
