"I wanted to personally thank both Karen and Kathy for their patience while Sarah went through the adoption and horse finding process. Second Stride could not find any better ambassadors for their organization. We bombarded them with a lot of questions while trying to find that perfect match for a life-long partnership, and they always responded in a timely manner and with kindness."

"I was finally able to meet (King) Nile on Friday. He is a joy - curious, sane, smart, willing and brave. I accidentally knocked a fan over in front of him in the cross-ties and he didn't even flinch and he walked both over and on a blue (Liverpool) tarp without pause. He is such a beautiful mover and his canter is like that of a rocking horse. Sarah keeps him interested in his flat work by working him over the occasional ground pole. I've attached a short 10 second video."

"Again thank you. Your are truly the "Angels of Mercy" for these OTTBs and the voice for these animals who have no voice of their own."

Second Stride regularly enters horses for adoption in community events, shows and clinics. This helps adopters see how the horses behave off the farm, with professional riders as well as amateurs of all ages. Our volunteers gain valuable experience from these events that will carry forward into the next horses they work with.

Second Stride horses with volunteer riders participated in a clinic with Gold Medal Olympian DOROTHY CROWELL, November 2012, gaining expert feedback on the potential of these adoptable horses!
