About Marie Dean

Anyone who met or knew Marie Dean was touched by her fervent love of horses and the desire to protect them. She stood out as a true horse lover and defender. Her tenacity in her dedication to our horses was felt by all who knew her.

Marie’s life ended tragically in April 2015 when she succumbed to complications due to cancer.

In her honour, Marie Dean Horse Protection Initiatives Canada has been created to enable her dream to help horses become a reality.

It would please her so much to know that others share in her dream and are contributing to make it a reality. If you would like to have your in memoriam or in honour donation shared on our blog, please send us an email with your information at
