Bombast, more affectionately called Bomb, came to us in the fall of 2014 from Second Call Thoroughbred Adoption Program where he was rehabbing from a right front fractured pastern bone. He was a perfect patient for his stall rest and has transitioned into our turnout and riding program with ease. He has been turned out with other geldings and LOVES to play. He prefers to have a toy in his stall to occupy his time but when it is time to have his stall cleaned, he is all about trying to help by grabbing the end of the pitch fork or trying to tip the wheel barrow. Bomb also loves a good neck scratch and will stand for hours leaning into the attention while curling up his lip.
He has impeccable manners on the ground, stands well for the farrier, grooming, mane pulling, tacking and mounting. We were pleasantly surprised by his willingness to return back to a riding program after a hiatus. We have been mostly working on walk/trot exercises in the indoor arena and have just started cantering. He has also been ridden in our outdoor arena (as seen in the most recent video) and is not fazed by the change of scenery at all! His floating trot and ease of accepting the bridle will make him a lovely dressage prospect. He will be suitable for an intermediate rider with a trainer.
