About Thor

Thor was removed from negligent owners in a joint effort between BEHS and law enforcement.  He was then awarded to BEHS by the courts.  He moved into a foster home after being weaned.  He was adopted in 2011 but returned in 2015 when his adopters moved out of state.

Thor attended the 2016 Bluebonnet Horse Expo and was adopted at the event.  He was returned in March 2017 because his teenage adopter lost interest.


It appears Thor was not handled much prior to coming to BEHS.

Health / Lameness

Thor has no known health or lameness problems.


Thor will be competing under saddle in the Non-Pro Under Saddle division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with non-pro Linda Kirk.  He will be available for adoption starting on October 21, 2017 at the Challenge competition during the Bluebonnet Horse Expo in Austin, Texas.

You can follow their progress on their Facebook page.

Evaluation and Training

Thor is a sweet young horse.  He’s had a lot of good handling on the ground ever since arriving in Bluebonnet as a weanling.  He was started under saddle at an adopter’s house, and he’s spending four months with foster home and previous Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge competitor to prepare for the Challenge.  He’ll be ridden in an arena and on trails in preparation for the event.

Thor’s foster home/Training Challenge rider has ponied him on trails and recently (mid August 2017) started riding him on trails. She says he is doing well at leading and following, is quiet and not spooky.  He doesn’t like water, but they’re working on that!
