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 asked to fill out a fact sheet about their horse, and submit at least 3-5 photos of their horse and video if possible. If you are unable to, we can arrange for a New Start Representative to attend your facility to meet with you & 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 does ask that owners donate $25.00 (or $80.00 if horse is still paper registered) that will be used to transfer the Standardbred Canada ownership of the horse to New Start.  


Owners and New Start are not required to pay for shipping a horse to an adoptive home, or for any veterinary evaluations prior to adoption. Owners may be asked if they can provide shipping, or know of someone who can help with shipping for a horse to go to their adopted home. If an owner wishes to have their horse enter our foster care program, owners are required to assist with arranging of the horse to get to one of our foster homes. 

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.
