Why do horses become at risk?

Poseidon: A Success Story
Poseidon was saved at auction in 2015.
|Sierra was in search of her dream horse, one that was steady with calm eyes, and we knew CHR was the place to look. Sierra and Poncho had a connection from the first time they met. The original plan was for Sierra…but that quickly changed. We’ll never forget the bittersweet day we were bringing Poncho home from CHR. We were so happy and excited, yet very sad to be separating Poncho from his best friend, Hero. We should’ve known what was to come. It didn’t take long before Hero joined our family.
Seeing Sierra in the saddle and her connection with Poncho made him realize that it was his turn. Through patience by all and careful guidance from CHR…along came Poseidon (now named Dawson). We can’t imagine our world without The Three Amigos being a part of it. Thank you to all of CHR (especially Shawna, Sarah and Carol) for helping bring these boys home to us!
