In this Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2012 photo taken in Washington, N.C., Megan Chance pets Burma before riding the thoroughbred for the first time since the two were reunited. Megan rode Burma as a child in New Jersey, took her to equestrian college in Virginia, and planned to bring her to North Carolina where she was starting a new stables. But, after leaving her on a year breeding contract, Burma vanished. For years Megan searched in vain, eventually deciding her horse must be dead. Last summer, Burma was rescued from the "kill pen" at a New Jersey auction and test facility and the two were recently reunited. (AP Photo/Gerry Broome) less
