Second Chance Polo Horse Rescue is a non- profit horse rescue. We are devoted to provide a safe home for polo horses that are in need due to neglect, career ending injuries, or who are victims of owners that can no longer afford the proper care due to economic issues. Our goal is to rehabilitate the horses and find homes for those that can be placed or to provide forever homes for those that are too damaged.

They are very happy with the horses and say they do their
job well as members of the Mounted Police unit.
UPDATE on Rose, Paco, and Corazon
These three were really doing well. After just a week they gained a noticeable amount of weight and their coats started to shine and hair was growing back! Unfortunately, due to matters out of our control, the owner demanded these horses back about a week ago. We notified Animal Control and the owner has now taken them back. We'd like to thank Animal Control for their help in rescuing these guys and the support and true dedication they have in helping abused and neglected animals. We will continue to monitor the status of these horses from afar...
Three Polo Horses Rescued
They arrived extremely underweight, with skin issues, and generally unhealthy. Within the first few days they were examined by a veterinarian, dewormed, hooves were trimmed, and placed on a high nutrition feed. In just a week's time they look remarkably better! Progress photos coming soon...
