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.

History

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

Health / Lameness

Thor has no known health or lameness problems.

Other

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. 

Thor is very easy to handle on the ground and under saddle.  He is now riding on trails and at the local arena very well, he is naturally calm and not reactive.  He prefers to walk or trot, loping is not his favorite but his foster homes keeps building up his strength and balance for loping. 

Thor’s foster home says he steers well, has a good whoa, has been ridden over some trail obstacles, and has been riddent hrough a forest on trail rides.  He is calm, somewhat lazy, and not at all spooky.  He’s still green but he could be a nice horse for a kid or beginner rider who was working with a trainer/instructor or for a more experienced child or intermediate adult who coudl finish his training.

Thor stands well for the farrier and vet, loads in the trailer well and he’s getting better at fly spray and baths.
