    It is with profound regret that Second Chance Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation announces the resignation of our founder Jessie Barbour.

    Jessie started the concept of a sanctuary for abandoned, abused or neglected horses about seven years ago.

    The foresight and devotion that has been involved in getting this organisation started and keeping it going has been unbelievable. After starting Second Chance in 2006, Jessie devoted most of her personal time to establishing a concept for the care and upkeep for equines that may not have another chance at a new life. We hope to bring them a Second Chance.

    Jessie has been deeply involved with Second Chance as an almost full-time volunteer and has attended to the demands of various roles that are required by SCHRAR, including our President and Chief Field Officer.
    However, after 6 years, health issues have convinced Jessie to take a step back and spend more time with her family, and her own horses.

    Second Chance's committee, members and horses are deeply grateful for Jessie's amazing contribution, and wish her all the best for the future.

    Happy horsing Jess!

    Good luck with everything Jessie, I highly admire you for making the decision to step back and put your family first. You have done such a wonderful job with everything and given Second Chance a brilliant start...I am sure the organisation will continue on for many, many years with success.

    Wishing you all the best for the future, and wishing all the best for the remaining members of SC! Keep up the fantastic work!

    Good on you, jess. you've provided an ongoing legacy and voice for so many horses out there who've had no one to speak for them. your vision for SCHR has been a total inspiration. I trust you've left it in safe and devoted hands and i wish both you, and SCHR the best of luck in the future.

    that said, i am TOTALLY looking forward to hearing loads more about your horsey adventures and how you go with your new plans. Good luck!
