I board and ride at a lovely lesson barn. We get a lot of our school (or lesson) horses at auctions. Last week at an auction, my trainer stumbled upon a GIANT percheron cross... and he is absolutely gorgeous! We named him Chance, because we're giving him a second chance. He is about 500 pounds underweight, and has severely cracked feet, and has gone lame twice this week.
Well, I know it's going to take him a while to fully recover, and I know that my barn is doing it's best to take care of him and get him back into shape, but I'm not sure if a lesson barn is the right place for him. I really want to help him in every way possible, because he is so sweet and forgiving. He isn't in lessons yet, and the farrier should be out soon.
Do you think he could make it in a lesson barn? Is it an okay place for him?
