Program Manager Susan Brown handles the details of organizing horse donations, horse viewings and adoptions including all the paperwork, as well as follow-up contact to check up on adopted horses. Susan also heads up our biggest fundraising events.

Adoption Coordinator Whitney Davis starts the process of evaluating each horse that comes into the program, helping settle them in at Second Stride. She helps us evaluate each new horse's soundness and way of going, meets adopters when they come to view horses, answers questions and helps arrange shipping.

Assistant Coordinator Lila Brown helps Whitney cover all the bases, including riding our Second Stride horses for videos or to show to potential adopters.

Web Site Manager Amy Stevens maintains our web site with regular updates to news, events, donations and adoptions. All new horses in the program are posted on the web site quickly, and ads are updated regularly with our evaluations, new photos and videos.
