There is a brief intro to another story in the beginning.
Watch video about Dually one year after his recovery.
He’s back! Stolen and severely injured, Dually's days of competition seemed over after he was stolen from Wendy Halweg on July 4, 2009.
Many of you will remember Dually, a top of the line barrel racing horse stolen in 2009 at a Fourth of July rodeo in Ft. Pierre, SD. The horse was taken from his corral during the night. We all followed the search and recovery of Dually through many Internet mediums and social networks.
His owner, Wendy Halweg, thought he would never compete in professional rodeo again due to the severity of his injuries. He had serious rope burns around his hooves and neck, with cuts deep enough to injure Dually’s tendon.
After almost two years of slow rehabilitation on an oversized treadmill, medical treatments and loads of tender loving care, Wendy is back in Dually’s saddle looking toward a possible comeback.
Flint Dahl, convicted of the theft of the horse, will spend five days in jail every Fourth of July for three more years.
