mane event

The Mane Event is an opportunity to experience the uniqueness of the Kruidenier Second Chance Ranch, while helping to raise crucial funds for the barn pets in our care.

What's new this year

The Mane Event will be held as a livestream on the web this year where you'll get to meet adoptable barn pets, hear their stories, and take a peek at online auction items that will be available for bidding.

This year, you can also choose your registration fee — and whether you give a little, or give a lot, you will still be giving a second chance to pets in need.

The event is hosted at The Kruidenier Second Chance Ranch at ARL Main, which is a safe haven for horses rescued from abuse, neglect and abandonment. Our staff give the horses the nutrition and care they need to become mentally and physically healthy and find a loving forever home.
