Patricia Durso (CEO and Founder 501C3 Non-Profit)

Hi everyone my name is Patricia Durso but everyone calls me Patty ❤️🐇. When I was a little girl in Argentina and we had a lot of wild mustangs. It was always my dream to have my own places with horses. My lifelong dream has come true of owning a retirement and sanctuary home for horses that are retired from their lives before us. We also gladly welcome dogs, cats, birds and exotic pets for their last retirement life. I bought this place in 2018 and transformed it into the retirement home that it is today. I am grateful and thankful for this beautiful Chance to give all these great animals the best rest of life they can have!

Kristine Earner ( Barn Manager)

Hi, my name is Kristine Earner! I was born in Latvia and came to New York when I was 5 years old. When I was 6 years old my family got their first horse, I have been riding and working with horses ever since. My dream when I was a child was to become a professional rider.  I worked with horses that did all kinds of disciplines: jumping, Barrel racing, and dressage. So far  I have had the best opportunity to follow my dreams and become barn manager at Hunny Bunny Secret Sanctuary. I am looking forward to the future and seeing where it brings us!!
