HAP­PENED BY CHANCE HORSES

Horse & Rider - - Saddle Chat -

The inspiration: Hap­pened by Chance Horses, an en­ter­prise that res­cues, re­ha­bil­i­tates, and re­homes equines, has an un­usual start-up story re­flected in its name. Inspired by the con­nec­tion be­tween her spe­cial-needs son Chance and a horse boarded on her prop­erty, Linda Ne­mec of New Braun­fels, Texas, ac­quired two older, bonded horses (Katie and Grande) through Craigslist for Chance and his brother, Trace. “Hav­ing a spe­cial-needs child has taught me to never give up,” Ne­mec says. “Just be­cause there are dif­fer­ent needs doesn’t mean they’re im­pos­si­ble needs.” Ne­mec ap­plies the same phi­los­o­phy to the hard-luck horses she res­cues. The rest of the story: Hap­pened by Chance Horses is the sub­ject of three videos found at ahome­forevery­horse.com, in­clud­ing the res­cue story of a horse named For­tuna.
