Update May 2017 Thumper is doing great and has received some amazing training in several areas. You can watch this video made of the last 120 days of training here: Team Thumper.. Thumper is a kind, sweet, willing horse. His favorite gear is walk and slow, but he will jog, extended jog and lope if asked. He needs a confident rider as he is still young and really feeds off the riders energy. Thumper has been to several horse shows where he was shown in Halter, Trail, both under saddle and in hand, Jr. Horse western pleasure and has done easier equitation patterns. Thumper stalls well, gets along with other horses, knows all the ground work, including easy to lunge, shoe, spray, clip, load, and bathe. Thumper has been in a parade, been hauled to trail rides, and ridden on many back roads. He crosses water, train tracks, bridges, and is not afraid of/or spooky of bicycles, dogs, cars or running kids. Thumper backs and side passes with ease, as well as, has a good whoa. He stands for mounting and dismounting and will even side over to a mounting block. Thumper will also pull a cart, though he would need an experienced handler for this talent. Thumper is only 3 so he can have some young horse moments and would be best suited for an intermediate/confident rider that is willing to continue his training or he would be fine with an amateur rider who rides with a mentor. He is a soft, polite, loving horse. Thumper will make an excellent addition to anyone's family. Come check him out on May 20th!
