Sending A Horse Through New Start


New Start Standardbreds works with owners on an individual needs basis to help rehome horses and give owners peace of mind in knowing that their equine companion is safe, and has a long term safety plan in place. NSS requests that all owners are as honest and open as possible about their horse, in order to find them the best matched home. 


A variety of different guidelines and programs are in place when sending a horse through NSS.

All owners wishing to list their horse will be required to fill out a fact sheet about their horse, and submit at least 3-5 photos of their horse and video if possible. If they are unable to, we can arrange for a New Start Standardbreds Representative to attend their facility to meet with the owner & the horse. The representative will take the photos & video to assist in rehoming the horse, as well as do an assessment of temperament and handling to better help find the horse a home! 

Owners may ask a fee for their horse, and the fee will be theirs. However, New Start Standardbreds does ask that owners donate $20.00 that will be used to transfer the ownership of the horse to New Start Standardbreds.  


Owners and New Start Standardbreds are not required to pay for shipping a horse to an adoptive home, or for any veterinary evaluations prior to adoption. 

When an adopter is found for a horse or if the horse is placed in one of our qualified foster homes, the owners of the horse will be required to sign a Release of Ownership form that states the horse will now be under the watch and guidance of New Start Standardbreds.  This includes the transfer of Standardbred Canada ownership to New Start Standardbreds.
