2013 AERC National Junior LD Champion

CHANCE OF FREEDOM - (Belesemo Chance x Gaila Breeze)
Breeders - James/ Gini Agnew
Rider – Lily Turaskl

AERC National Jr. LD Champion
1st – SW Region Jr. LD Mileage

This wonderful gelding has a fantastic story beginning with his breeders James & Gini Agnew of South Carolina. They acquired his sire, Belesemo Chance (Belesemo Trad x Sunrise Feylene) as a baby from Belesemo Arabians, when they were willing to take a chance on him as a stallion prospect after he was stepped on at the age of 3 days and survived a broken leg plated with steel and screws. James & Gini bred Chance to their mares which produced Chance of Freedom and started Chance on his great endurance career. He was ridden to his National Champion Junior LD win by 10 yr. old Lily Turaski and Chance currently has 1,945 career miles. What a wonderful accomplishment.

We were pleased to welcome Dr. Kara Cockrum, DVM, and her vet tech students from our local Broadview University to the ranch in November for a hands on horse experience day for students enrolled in their veterinary technician program. The students spent the day practicing administering shots, pulling blood for tests to be run, wrapping "injured" legs, proper restraint and handling of foals, and other duties necessary for their chosen occupation. It was a very educational day for students and staff alike.

Coincidently, Dr. Cockrum worked at Belesemo Arabian Ranch in her teenage years as one of our original helpers. Its wonderful to see the culmination of her chosen career as a veterinarian and now as a teaching professor a the university.
