Hello Friends of SCR! Have we got news for you!
For 33 years, Katie Merwick has rescued, cared for, trained and adopted out thoroughbred racehorses in the Pacific Northwest. She announced a transition in SCR's mission to begin in 2015, as she retires from "rescue" and will continue to work on behalf of the horses in an administrative role through teaching and consulting.
What will happen to the horses?That is where the good news comes in!
SCR currently houses 34 horses. Some will continue to be rehabilitated and re-homed while partnering with people in need too! The other lucky ones will stay on as "equine staff". SCR and Equine Therapy and Learning Specialist, Amy Schilder are planning an ambitious horse facility to benefit both horses and people, Second Chance Ranch Equine Learning Center . A place where horses in need of purpose and people in need of support and learning will come together. Stanwood Therapuetic Horsemanship will run the educational and therapy programs at the center.
