A small shaggy horse that recently moved to Salt Spring has become the unsuspecting local touchpoint for a disturbing practice with far-reaching implications of animal cruelty, food safety and horse breeding industries in Canada and beyond.

Chance is a five-year-old Standardbred female, parented by race horses Austin Carr and Bet a Buck Bets and recently adopted by Salt Spring resident Nola Sater. Sater is an animal lover who had three horses in her early teens. Her decision to take home one horse in need has prompted her to enter a world of political engagement she never wanted or expected.
