If it hadn't been for falling in love with Ronald Sproat, the man who would become her husband, Carol Giles wouldn't have met Stranger, a bay Arabian gelding.
If it hadn't been for Giles' lifelong love of horses, Stranger might have ended up at the slaughterhouse.

Giles, 48, and Stranger, 12, leave Jan. 15 for Dubai, where they'll compete as members of the United States Endurance Equestrian Team in the 100-mile World Cup Endurance Championships, to be held Jan. 26-27.
