Recent Rescue


Bella is a 2003 Hackney Pony mare who will need quite a bit of weight before she's ready to start her training. She has a beautiful natural gait that will look outstanding pulling a cart.


MarioKart 8 Tournament

The Chromatic Dragon is hosting a $10 per person tournament to benefit Second Chances Equine Rescue. Of each $10 entry fee, $5 will go towards Second Chances Equine Rescue, with the remaining $5 going towards a prize pot for the winners of the tournament. The more people who attend, the greater the prize pot, so bring your friends! This is an all ages bracket-style tournament, and will be open to the public. Get those controllers warmed up, and meet us at The Dragon on February 11th for gaming that helps to support your local community!


Second Chances Equine Rescue welcomes volunteers!

We are looking for motivated people in EVERY area.

Bathroom Facility

We are continuing to raise funds to build an ADA bathroom facility so that we are able to support a wider range of visitors.

Please consider a tax deductible donation towards this project. We have raised $1,800 of the $4,800.

Our Projects

Hurricane Cleanup

On 8 Oct Hurricane Matthew made his way up our coast. We nearly escaped all damage except for two trees that fell on our quarantine pen fence. A few volunteers came out even though they still didn't have power to help us clear up the trees. THANK YOU!

Dept of AG Pickup

On 15 Dec we picked up four local horses and their pig. We lost Hannah due to a severe injury but Big Boy, Patches, and Whiskey are doing great at Hope Reins Rescue. Mr. Pig was adopted locally.

Annual Fundraiser

Help us raise funds to continue lifesaving efforts! We get calls and emails for assistance everyday.

2016 Ride for Rescue

We had a lovely trail ride on 1 Oct out at Middleton Lake with some new friends.


  • There are some people who do this for the attention and then there are some who do it for the passion. This is definitely a passion.

  • This is an amazing place. Second Chances gives hope to horses who have none.

    Jennifer Whalen

  • When a horse's world is thrown into chaos a horse comes here to find refuge and peace; when a person's world is thrown into chaos they come here and find their best friend and adopt them into their family. What more could horse or human ever desire?

    Elizabeth Jones

    Tammy Gentry
