About the Event

Our special guests are invited to attend a first-of-its-kind VIP Visit Day at Pleasant Valley State Prison in Coalinga, CA to celebrate the 2nd anniversary of the TRF Second Chances Program as well as the graduation of the 5th class of men to complete the program since it began in October 2019.

The TRF is grateful to the leadership of Pleasant Valley State Prison (PVSP) and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) for allowing us to host this unique and very exciting celebration of two important milestones in the TRF Second Chances Program’s evolution.

This program, the first in California, reflects a unique partnership and collaborative effort led by CDCR and PVSP and supported by the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation, Harris Ranch Horse Division and West Hills College. Together we celebrate this shared effort to Save Horses and Change Lives.
