Vaudreuil's A Horse Tale Rescue welcomes retired SPVM Cavalry Unit member.
Updated: Nov 23
A Horse Tale Rescue in Vaudreuil's lifelong mission has been to promote the rehabilitation and rehoming of horses in need that have been given up, rescued, or are retired from their stable due to health reasons.
This week, in collaboration with the Montreal SPVM Cavalry Unit, the rescue has welcomed a new member: 14-year-old Goliath. The purebred Canadian witnessed numerous crowd control scenarios and assisted Montreal's police force in keeping the peace in the different settings he was called upon to uphold and assist.
Goliath retired to AHT to stand with his former comrades Patriote and Sunny since he had a dropped rear fetlock and could not be ridden. Montreal's SPVM Cavalry Unit chose AHT Rescue to look after the three retirees.
These horses, along with the other AHT rescues, will be at their "Holiday Magic" event on Saturday, December 9, from 1 to 4 p.m. at 27 Chemin Murphy, Vaudreuil-Dorion J7W 8P2 (admission for adults is $10, children under 10 enter for free). Attendees of the yearly event can also meet the SPVM police officers who once worked with them on the streets of Montreal.

The non-profit organization relies on its dedicated volunteers and donors to care for its 14 rescues through sponsorships and fundraising events such as their Holiday Magic community celebration.
