Recent Adoptions

Harvest Dance

Harvest Dance 2013 This gentle old guy has been with LongRun for a number of years now, living on Mary Zimmerman’s foster farm.  With his racing injuries, he never could be adopted for more than a companion animal. As he was always a favourite of  Mary’s, she decided it was time to adopt him herself so he could live out the rest of his years on her farm in Loretto.  Thanks so much Mary!

Careless Cousin


This adorable dark bay was donated to LongRun by Barbara Burke after she bought out the syndicate that owned him, to retire him.  When Careless Cousin dropped his head and nuzzled Chloe Duffy the first time they met, we knew a partnership was formed.  His show name is now Just Between Us, aka Eddie and he and Chloe have been accepted to participate in the 2016 Retired Racehorse Project in the Junior Eventing division.  Good luck to both!!!

Stormy Rainbow

STORMY RAINBOW ON TRAILThis very flashy guy is enjoying his new career exploring the trails around Aurora and meeting all sorts of new friends.  He was very kindly donated by Ericka Rusnak and very quickly caught the eye of Dona Grosser who adopted him in January.  Dona also has LongRun graduate, and another handsome chestnut, El Grande.






MOTIONAL MEETING HER NEW FRIENDS MARCH 2016This is the sweetest mare you could ever want to meet and when Diane Brooks first rode her at Lynn Ward’s foster farm, we all knew it was love at first sight. Diane met a few other LongRun horses but it was this pretty chestnut who took her heart.  Here is Motional (right) meeting her hew friends on Diane’s farm in southwest Ontario.

East Side

EASTSIDE CONTENT IN HIS NEW PADDOCK CROPPEDRebekah Stevenson was looking for a new eventing prospect and contacted LongRun.  She was introduced to a few on Alain Lemay’s foster farm and rode a couple.  We think it was East Side’s pleasant personality and kind disposition but also his very athletic look and feel that encouraged her to adopt him.  We wish these two youngsters the best of luck and many happy years of competition and, of course, lots of photos of lots of ribbons!
