Thomas is a 16hh, 2004 Percheron cross gelding who came to CDHR in December of 2016 because his owner was no longer able to care for him. Thomas was rescued from a Premarin (PMU) farm as a baby. Thomas was sent to training on May 21, 2017 where he is coming along working on manners and gaining strength in his hind end. He is sound but his pelvis was out of alignment and he wasn't using his right hind properly. After a visit with the chiropractor he is moving much more forward and energetically in long lines and gaining muscle behind. Now that his balance and strength are improving he is ready for more under saddle work. His friendly and playful personality makes him a charmer for sure. Thomas is green, can be pushy if allowed and requires an experienced rider/handler to continue his training so bad habits don't return. He has potential for driving, trail riding, and ring work with more experience. The more work the better for this intelligent and curious gelding.
