There are few organizations I feel are worthy of my support. I feel Second Chance Thoroughbreds , Collette Duddy and her volunteers are a great organizations that tirelessly work to enhance the future of Thoroughbreds who may otherwise not get the well deserved second chance at another life. They often give the horses that need time to rehab and heal the time they need before they are ready for their second careers. I have witnessed their dedication and love for the horses. I am happy to work with them in any way I am able. This is definitely a five star group.

Second chance thoroughbreds is a wonderful organization that is committed to improving the lives for so many horses in need. Their collective experience in the horse industry makes them an incredibly valued resource in our region. Collette and her team of volunteers strive for the best care and quality of life do any horse that comes to them, and they work endlessly to find new homes and careers for these champion equines who strive so hard to please their owners yet still end up needing rescue through the aid of second chance thoroughbreds.
