The Big Lebowski

The Dude joined the Therapeion Therapeutic Riding Center team as a two-year-old and was initially started with ground work. He was started under saddle as a late three-year-old and has had sixty days of professional training. When he was four years old, The Dude joined our therapeutic riding lessons and has been a great horse for the program these past 5 years.
Over time we have come to understand Dude better and it is clear that he would love to be a one-person horse. He doesn't enjoy having multiple people working with him at the same time so therapeutic riding just isn't the best fit for him. We're very fond of him and hate to see him go. Our primary concern is finding the best home we can for him. Therefore, we are not looking to rehome him with another therapeutic riding center or other circumstances that would require him to work with more than one person at a time. (One-on-one instructor/student situations would be fine.)
