Second Chances

Second Chances

A charity which rescues and rehabilitates abandoned horses and ponies and then goes on to use them to work with disabled and disadvantaged young people.

The Wessex Youth Trust's donations contributed to the construction of disabled access facilities and improvements to an outdoor riding arena, as well as to the purchase of new specially adapted saddles for disabled riders.


"The joy that horse riding brings to a young person with physical disabilities has been quite amazing. One said - "when we ride our ponies, we borrow freedom."
