Breed: Quarter Horse
Tonka came to Blue Rider in June 2021, at fifteen years of age. He came from a loving family who recognized that when his girl outgrew him, he would still like to have a job. Tonka has had extensive training in dressage and reining, loves to jump, and is very good at teaching riders all of his considerable skills. He is still learning how to be a therapy horse but he is catching on quickly to the lesson routine. Tonka is small but mighty, playful, friendly, and always tries his best.
He has some old injuries from a previous life, requiring support from our farrier and chiropractor, as well as regular bodywork from the instructors.
