The survival of the Lac La Croix Indigenous Pony breed depends on two main factors: (1) an increase in the number of foals from genetically-matched breeding pairs, and (2) an increase in the number of Lac La Croix Indigenous Pony caretakers and breeders. Caretakers and breeders have an important "give-and-take" relationship to uphold: caretakers showcase the breed by taking their ponies to community events, such as horse shows, competitions, festivals, educational events, and equine therapy programs, thereby raising awareness about their importance and promoting the breed. Breeders, in turn, supply the community with the next generation of ponies by ensuring genetically-critical ponies remain in the breeding pool while non-breeding ponies are placed with suitable community caretakers. As such, stallions, geldings, mares, and foals (and their human counterparts) all are critical for the sustainability of the breed. At The Red Pony Stands Ojibwe Horse Sanctuary, we build and prioritize strong relationships with new caretakers of our ponies, and are available for consultation to support their community events and initiatives.
