Second Chance Thoroughbreds is an awesome organization. I have been riding with Collette since 2004, and there is no other person I would want to be learning from. Everyone at Second Chance Thoroughbreds truly believes in always putting the horse first, and that every horse deserves a good life. All of the horses at Second Chance Thoroughbreds are happy and healthy. I have witnessed both horses, and riders grow as individuals and as athletes in Collette's hands. This facility is one of a kind, as it is professionally run but puts having fun at the top of the list.

This facility is not filled with the stereotypical 'snobs' of horse people. The volunteers are always ready to help one another, and are there every step of the way to encourage others. I have gained not only a love of riding, but a family at this barn. I have learned virtually everything I know about horses while riding with Second Chance Thoroughbreds.

I have witnessed a long list of riders and horses that have made the teams of a lifetime, all because of the extra mile that Collette goes. I am proud to say that this organization is not 'in it' for the money, but for the sheer love of the horse.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them more funding so they can expand their facilities and reach out to even more people!

Collette and second chance thoroughbreds do amazing work and I am proud to have had the opportunity to work with her in the past. Not only does she put her entire life's work into findin new homes for OTTBs, but she goes the extra mile every time to make sure the horses are happy and healthy. Every horse that comes through her hands receive a new foundation from day one. I adopted a Thoroughbred from Collette when he was off the track for 1 year as a 5 year old. He is now one I the most well adjusted horses at his current barn, and the barn mostly consists of Rocky Mountain Horses... Nobody believes me when I tell them he raced. When he first arrived at collettes, he was very nervous and anxious, now he is a trailblazer and loves to jump.

I would give them more space and better facilities to allow them to accomplish more than they are able to currently. This would give them the opportunity to help more horses in a shorter amount of time.
