Chiquita is not old, but her polo career was cut short by Navicular disease. She is enjoying early retirement with her handsome buckskin friend at the farm we use for our retirees in eastern Washington state.

Cabo is a great example of a horse who needs our help! He is about 18 years old, per our veterinarian, and played a lot of great polo in his day, but became unpredictable toward the end of his career. He would lock up under saddle and then take off bucking, and on one memorable occasion, flipped himself backwards over a three board wooden fence – with a rider. Fortunately neither of them were seriously injured. Cabo’s polo owner actually was a good person who spent money on vet, supplements and even an animal communicator in an attempt to learn what was bothering Cabo, but nothing was successful. We believe Cabo has an undiagnosed physical problem that makes riding painful and scary for him. He is a sweetheart on the ground and we look forward to providing him with the retirement he has earned!
