Southern Tier Tuesdays: Second Chance Thoroughbreds

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

(WBNG) -- Second Chance Thoroughbreds is this week's winner of a two-thousand dollar grant from Upstate Shredding through Southern Tier Tuesdays.

The organization has been a non-profit since 2012 and takes in thoroughbreds that can no longer race, or have since retired, who need attention, rehabilitation, and care.

Collette Duddy, the non-profit's Executive Director, says that the organization helps train the horses for whatever discipline is suitable for them next.

"We came up with the name because, I guess, they didn't make it as a racehorse and now they're getting a chance at a second career," explained Duddy.

You can also adopt horses through Second Chance Throughbreds, said Duddy who adds that May is adopt a horse month.

The non-profit will use the grant to feed and maintain the horses.

Second Chance Thoroughbreds will begin offering riding lessons this June and will also host fundraisers this summer which include a concert and horseshow.
