Experienced, Gentle, Calm and Quiet
Chance is one of those unfortunate horses that gave his all to his humans, then got injured and dumped on a kill lot. Somewhere along the way, he was popped in the right hock, causing damage that was not properly treated. The result is a wad of scar tissue that looks odd but causes no issues.
Because Chance was so badly starved, he went through a prolonged quarantine. He’s now put on enough weight to ride, and our trainer says he’s a perfect gentleman with a soft face and excellent ground manners. He shows no signs of discomfort or stress, even after all he’s been through.
In addition to Chance’s hock injury, he appears to have a suspensory ligament disorder that may progress to the point where he can no longer be ridden. Again, the vet says Chance is not in pain, but he should be monitored.
