Wide Open, aka “Ben,” is a former race horse who has come a long way in his rehabilitation. He’s now a healthy, strapping big hunk of love and we’re all crazy about him. He has great ground manners, and is very friendly with humans and other horses. We have not yet evaluated him under saddle. To view his Equibase profile, click here.
RESCUE STORY: We rescued Wide Open/Ben on October 9, 2017 after a citizen reported to police three emaciated horses being kept in unhealthy/unsafe conditions at a ramshackle boarding facility in the C-9 Basin. He arrived with a body condition score of a 1, the lowest on the scale, along with a stifle injury.
