Our Mission

     Second Chance Thoroughbreds, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to retraining and re-homing retired thoroughbred racehorses. We are an all-volunteer organization located in scenic Spencer, New York whose thoroughbreds come both straight off the track and through local at-risk sales ads. Once at our facility, our horses are assessed and given downtime before starting a suitable retraining program to prepare them for a new career. Our training philosophy is horse-centered; helping the horses learn a discipline they are willing and able to excel at based on both physical and mental strengths and abilities. Our thoroughbreds start their training by learning to be more balanced at the walk, trot and canter.

Adoption Policy

If you are interested in adopting one of our thoroughbreds, we ask that you fill out our adoption questionnaire located on our website. We also encourage all prospective adopters to come ride our thoroughbreds prior to adoption.

     If you have any questions, feel free to email us ( or call or text 607-882-1353).

     We love visitors and volunteers (by appointment)! Contact us if you are interested in coming to the facility!
