The Red Pony Stands® Ojibwe Horse Sanctuary is a Lac La Croix Indigenous Pony-specific sanctuary. The sanctuary is located on a beautiful acreage that is nestled at the edge of the Qu'Appelle Valley which runs from west to east across southern Saskatchewan and neighbours Piapot Cree Nation.
We are honoured to care for a beautiful herd of the six DNA'ed Lac La Croix Indigenous Ponies, which includes two breeding stallions and four mares. The Lac La Croix Indigenous Pony breed was on the brink extinction when only four mares remained in 1977, and there are still only and estimated 175-200 left in the world.
The Red Pony Stands® Ojibwe Horse Sanctuary is an Indigenous owned and operated federally and provincially registered not-for-profit organization aimed at protecting, promoting, and preserving the critically endangered Lac La Croix Indigenous Pony and its cultural significance of the breed for Indigenous peoples of Canada.
We love our supporters, so feel free to contact us with any of your questions about our sanctuary or the Lac La Croix Indigenous Pony breed in general.
