My Horse Profile

Quarter Horse from Kamloops, BC

Chance

About Me

Active within 1780 Days

I am from Kamloops, BC and I've been a Club Horse member for 5 years, 4 months and 4 days

Nicknames: Chance romance, chancey. ..unregistered

Age: 15 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Quarter Horse

Height: 14.3 HH

Color: Black, white star, 2 back half pasterns with ermine spots

Type of Riding: i will eventually do reining with him but next spring will be the first time i show him. i will probably start him out in western pleasure or something of the sort.i also do an large amount of parelli/natural horsemanship with chance...it definitly keeps him thinking.

My Horse's Achievements: overcoming his fear of trail rides, and overcoming his fear in general on a day that was one of his worst days when it came to behaviour and calming down enough to let me put a 5 yr old who's never seen a horse before on his back and walk her around the paddock with him, HOTD

My Horse's Favorite Treat: as long as it's edible, he loves it...especially oats...but what horse doesn't love oats.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: be a horse.he loves it when ppl give him treats and he loves doing tricks for them.

Pet Peeves: new ppl who are green trying to work with him.

How We Met

i started riding some horses for a lady (who is now a very good friend of mine), chances dad being one of them. chance had 30 days pro reining training on him 2 years before then left in the field after that (other then having ground work done with him) so i told my friend i would like to get on him so she said ok.the first time i got on him.i didn't have my helmet so she grabbed it while i was on him and didn't even have my feet in the stirrups yet. her dog ran between his back legs (he can be a very nervous horse) and he spooked and jumped forward on her foot she screamed and he jumped back...into his brush box which spooked him again...he jumped on her foot again and spun around and took off bucking. ..HARD.i had been riding for since i was about 9 and i had never truly been bucked off a horse...it took him a while but i ended up right on my butt in the middle of the riding arena. i love a challenge and i told her that one day i would own her horse.from that day on, chance and i had an amazing relationship (he felt bad and came in with a pout). i rode chance every single day after that, then one day she told me she had to down size because there was nothing left of her fields so some of the horses were going to the auction, chance was one of them.this really broke her heart because he was her first born on the property and it broke my heart because i loved him so much and i would be the one to show him there.so she told me that if i could come up with $500 before the auction he was mine. i don't know how i did it but i did and i've owned him ever since...i rode him almost 2 years and owned him about 4 or 5 years..

Hey Chance! Heres a vote for you! THanks so much for voting for Maybel! Come again! :)

Update: Well yesterday, i finally got to ride Mayb again! She was such a good girl! I rode about an hour just around and she mostly behaved. Once she tried to run back to the barn but oh well. Then when i was done riding with the saddle i hopped on her bareback! That was fun! I haven't ridden bareback in so long! Thanks for voting for Maybel! PLEASE keep voting! I really want to get 3250 votes by the end of the month, even if we don't get HOTM! Only 5 days left, so please come leave a vote! Thanks! We left a vote for u!

Hey Chance! Heres a vote for you! THanks for voting for Maybel! How's Chance?

Update- Well, the farrier didn't show up yesterday, i waited all afternoon with Lavender and he didn't come. We called later and he said he was sick and couldn't come. Well that's okay, but i'm wishing he would've called to tell me he couldn't come before i sat there for 3 hours! So Lavender still can't be ridden! I don't know when he'll be able to come back to put her shoe on! But i think i am going to ride Maybel today! Hopefully she'll behave herself! Thanks so much for voting for Maybel! Please keep voting! We left a vote! Thanks!
