Second Chance Ranch

Second Chance Ranch

The ARL's Kruidenier Second Chance Ranch is a safe haven for horses rescued from abuse, neglect and abandonment, and it is also a temporary home for other barn animals waiting for new, loving families. 

While horses often come to us in very rough shape, we give them the nutrition and care they need to become mentally and physically healthy. Once they're ready, we help them find their forever homes. 

To see our currently available horses and other barn pets, click here. For more information on fostering or adopting horses or other barn pets, contact or (515) 473-9112.

Please note that the ARL only adopts animals as family pets, not for consumption or research. This provision in our adoption contract is strictly enforced.

Second Chance Ranch Arena

The ARL Second Chance Ranch hosts multiple educational clinics and seminars each year in the spacious Second Chance Ranch Arena. The arena is also available to rent for private functions or open riding. You can see photos of the arena here. If you're interested in renting the arena, contact or (515) 473-9112.
