For an off-the-track thoroughbred, proper training and education for a new career is the key for successful long term placement and a secure future.
If you’ve always wanted to own and care for a horse without having the daily responsibilities, consider sponsoring a Second Stride horse at our facility. The following types of sponsorships are available:
- The FRIENDS LEVEL sponsorship for $350 per month helps cover the full care, worming and farrier expenses for a Second Stride horse while we search for a home for that horse. During sponsorship months, you will be kept informed of your horse’s progress and placement, and receive photos of your horse by email.
- The PATRONS LEVEL sponsorship for $650 per month will help care for and facilitate the retraining or rehabilitation of a retired racehorse in the Second Stride program. During your sponsorship, you will receive information by email about the re-training process and photos showing your horse’s progress. You will also be kept informed about your horse’s prospects for placement in a new home, and you will be invited to the farm to watch training sessions with your horse.
