Bayli Rees & Black Wind Thunder.jpg

Thunder had a successful career on the Arabian A circuit, starting as a yearling stallion in hand. He continued his career showing in both Western and Hunter Pleasure with Michael Rees before transitioning to a junior exhibitor horse. With Bayli Rees, Thunder captured countless championships, including the Mary Weeks Award and the Roselyn A. Faut Memorial class here at ISHA.

Whether packing a baby beginner through their first walk-trot lesson or crushing an equitation pattern, Thunder always gave 100%. He will forever be remembered as the little black horse with the great big heart. We were blessed to have Thunder in our lives.
