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.

He competed in the Non Pro Under Saddle Division of the 2017 Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge.  He did very well and was adopted by someone who met him at the event.  He was returned in 2019 because he was not getting along well with other horses at his home.

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 Gabrielle Williams.  He will be available for adoption starting on October 19, 2019 at the Challenge competition during the Bluebonnet Horse Expo in Taylor, Texas.


You can follow their progress on their Facebook page.

Evaluation and Training

Thor is a sweet 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 then he was ridden by a non-pro for four months in preparation for the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge. 

Thor is very easy to handle on the ground and under saddle.  He has been ridden on trails and at various arenas, and he’s quiet and easy going.  His current Training Challenge partner has been working on his lope, and now that he is balanced he’s learned to love loping!  She thinks he has potential as a playday horse.
