Founder and president Dayle Eldredge created Second Wind Thoroughbred Project with her mother and lifelong friend in 2015.
What makes the program unique is its core group of people. They were all horse-loving teens whose passion was ignited when they started riding Thoroughbreds. They all became industry experts who have had lifelong careers at the highest levels of the profession in both the racing and horse show worlds.
Second Wind’s group of talented horsewomen includes a U.S. Equestrian Federation “R” hunter/jumper horse show judge who serves on national committees, a horse show steward, a competitive amateur hunter/jumper rider, a Reiki master and homeopath, an equine veterinarian and a farrier, both of whose client lists include Hall of Fame racehorse trainers and Olympic dressage riders.
Second Wind is located just outside of Camden, S.C. The area’s historic Thoroughbred-focused community boasts many training centers, the Steeplechase Hall of Fame, and the South Carolina Horse Park. Second Wind is proud of its outstanding facilities at The Stables at Macburn Plantation. Its training program is enhanced by an indoor arena and more than 5,000 acres of trails.
As a boutique operation, Second Wind allows each horse the opportunity to progress at their own pace. A positive outcome for every horse is the No. 1 priority.
