Meet Tundra

Hi, my name is Tundra! I am a 10 year old Grade gelding. It's been a long year for me. I have been passed from home to home and finally auction to auction. After making it through I don't even know how many homes and auctions, I was one of the lucky ones to arrive in a pasture after the intake process here at the rescue in November. It has taken me quite sometime to settle in and realize I don't have to worry about being shoved on another trailer headed to an unknown destination. The horse handler gave me extra time as well to just settle and connect before pushing me too hard. When I arrived I was very pushy and nervous and it seemed like most of the people were scared of me not understanding I was only coming to them because I wanted someone to save me. I was harder to catch because if I didn't let them near me in the first place they couldn't make me do anything I figured. In the end I'm grateful I am here and I hope to find a good home that values me even though I'm not perfect yet.

Tundra has a hard outer shell and I chose to let him settle in down in the training fields rather than put him though his initial training evaluation right off. I find that some horses are more sensitive to being relocated and just have a lot of trama after the auction experience/s they've been though, so I try to make sure they are given every chance to feel loved and just settle in. Yesterday (January 4) I did his training evaluation and he did very well. He went from being very difficult to catch to yesterday he came to me at the gate for grain and let me love on him and than halter him. He wasn't pushy with me yesterday at all even though some may have been worried with their initial health intake process that he was too much of a handful. I would say in general and with more time for sure it just takes a few minutes and some grain to catch. He does not seem buddy sour and stands tied nicely now. He picks up his feet and stands for saddling. He is high headed and needs some work with bridling but we will also be having his teeth looked at to make sure he isn't in pain. He was a good boy and stood mostly to be mounted. He has a very calm laid back personality and just needs people to earn his trust back. He did toss his head and fight the bit a little and just seems like he needs some time to readjust to being ridden. He can be a little stubborn with moving off of leg but stayed calm through the evaluation. I would say in general he needs work on being softer in the mouth as well as moving off of leg. He would suit a home that is willing to work with his idiosyncrasies and be patient. He does not seem like a horse that wants to run speed events or anything fast.
