Worded from Walters owner:

"After two months of me riding him everyday I was able to put my daughter on him and help her learn how to effectively use her aids and get the desired response. He poked along like a hunter. He was turning into a fantastic pony. My daughter would do poles and pop him over cross rails and he enjoyed it. At the end of every ride she would take off her tack and walk him around bareback. He is fantastic on trails and isn't afraid of traffic. As you know he has quite the personality and does enjoy human friends a lot."

 10 year old, 16.2hh, Registered Jockey Club, bay Thoroughbred gelding

To the perfect home, of course.
Adoption fee waived,  Merry Christmas!

Very sweet, "Off the Track" Thoroughbred boy in need of his wonderful forever home!

Looking for a Pasture Pet/Ornament/Companion/new Best Friend/Light Riding horse?

Commander came from a Hunter/Jumper lesson program.

With the right care, he could come sound enough to ride!

He was rescued by Strong's 2nd Chance Ranch, and is currently ready for adoption to someone who will love and care for him.

Commander was discovered and adopted by Strong's 2nd Chance Ranch in 2016.

He was extremely thin, and extremely lame.

When he arrived at the barn, the S2CR Team went right to work.

Approximately 4 months later, he is plump and ready for adoption (See Before and After photos).

S2CR (Strong's 2nd Chance Ranch) brought Commander to the Vet Clinic to be evaluated by Artaurus Veterinary Hospital/Dr. Robert Steere.

After a lameness exam, and flexions (See Videos and Photos), it was ascertained that the lameness was in Commander's right fore, probably in the foot.

After Blocks, that was confirmed.

X-Rays showed significant changes in the Navicular bone:


Basic Soundness Exam showed Commander is very healthy otherwise:  lungs and heart are good, eyes are good, legs are clean, weight is perfect.

Immediately after vet exam, S2CR's farrier:  Adam Dunaway of Dunaway Farrier service, put a wedge shoe on Commander's right fore, with the rolled back toe, to help to alleviate pain and stress to his Navicular bone changes.

Commander has been in lots of pain for quite some time.

He, (like every other horse on the planet), deserves to be protected, loved, and properly cared for.

He is a sweet heart doll.

Please contact Clare for more details

Stunning, 15 year old, 17.1hh, black Hanoverian gelding!

To the perfect home, of course.

Adoption fee waived, Merry Christmas!

Strong's 2nd Chance Ranch located in Petaluma has available to the perfect forever home a fabulous old school black with white star Hanoverian by Diamont.

Here is your chance to own a Hanoverian and have him be your best friend.

The breeder trusted our program to help him find his second chance in life. After his basic training "Arty" lived had in the breeder's pasture for years due to slight soundness issues. His big personality led the breeder to believe he wanted more interaction so she gave him to us.

After a few months of refresher training he is now a safe horse to ride. His ground manners are tricky but they do not outweigh his safety under saddle. He is currently enjoyed by our advanced and advance beginner riders walk trot and canter in the arena.

An amazing breed and quite a beauty and barn favorite that is for sure.
