If you're looking for a sweet, laid-back dude with a great backstory, look no further! Thunder is your guy!
This OTTB has a smooth walk, trot, & canter, & is doing super well so far under western tack in our retraining program.
He has led quite a life! He was foaled in Indiana (Jockey Club name Doublethethunder), but spent most of his career racing in Puerto Rico. Once horses retire on the island, their potential for second careers are very limited, and unfortunately, many wind up euthanized or abandoned. We helped fundraise to save Thunder & bring him home.
Since being back in Indiana, Thunder got some rest and relaxation time before being restarted under western saddle. So far, he has been very accepting of his new training. He’s not been hyper-sensitive to cues and is more forgiving of his rider than most others.
Thunder has been vet cleared for any career where his feet stay on the ground. We are thinking he is going to be more of a trail horse than a show pen horse. He’s looking for a confident rider with quiet hands and a balanced seat.
All the horses in our retraining program come fully vetted, with test rides for qualified adopters, and with 30-day trial periods.
See more photos & lots of videos of him on our website!
