In the early 80’s, a horse owner and native Nova Scotian had a vision of forming a group which would benefit the welfare of the horse, unbiased as to breed or area of the country. George Wade spent much time and energy having the Morgan Horse Foundation registered as a charity with Revenue Canada. In the early years, the Foundation, recognizing the growing shortage of equine vets, mainly provided scholarships to veterinary students who were going into equine practice. These students were at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine, the Equine Research Centre at the University of Guelph, the University of Montreal Equine Centre, and the Atlantic University Vet College.
