The ASPCA has generously donated $5000 to SECOND STRIDE to help support the training of 15 rescued Thoroughbreds we took on in January. One of these is 3 year old thoroughbred filly SS NICE NICOLE, who has progressed in training from a feral, unbroke herd member to a brave riding horse. THANK-YOU ASPCA!


Second Stride placed 122 retired thoroughbred racehorses into adoptive homes in 2015!
