Companion Horses

Some of the horses at Happened by Chance Horses have come from troubled backgrounds and/or have medical issues that prevent them from being ridden or mounted. These horses can serve as companion horses for you and/or your working horses. Companion horses may have special needs, please be sure to read each description below carefully.
