THT Bloodstock

" A horse liv​es by the laws of their nature. Where they fit in to the herd, how they interpret their world, how they learn, how they're coached, how they 

ultimately perform, is governed by the rules of that nature; it is wise to make an effort, to understand it." #HerdDynamics Matter. ~ Kerry M Thomas​

Our Team


Kerry Thomas is a pioneer of equine athletic psychological research and Herd Dynamics. He created emotional conformation profiling, which measure’s the mental and emotional capacities of the equine. Emotional Conformation is the study of Emotional Intelligence; measuring the psychological athlete for Trainability, Behavioral Genetic Traits, Aptitude are key. There's a difference between being athletic and being and athlete; Herd Dynamics matter.

Thomas’ theories on herd dynamics and equine communication have applications in all equine disciplines. His first book Horse Profiling: The Secret to Motivating Equine Athletes released in April 25th, 2012, continues to grow in international favor and popularity. Kerry continues to advance his research as can be noted by his ongoing blog writing, and a second book is planned for the future.

Thomas made the breakthrough discovery that it was mental/emotional makeup of the horse, and not the physical, that governed the dynamics of the herd. With an understanding that this was the foundation of the equine reality, no matter the breed of horse or career choices we as people make for them, an entire new world became visible.

Focusing on this research, Thomas began to identify ways in which horses could be mentally conditioned toward a given goal. He has spent more than 18 years streamlining his unique system of evaluations and developing herd dynamic analysis. In 2008 he officially took the leap of faith and created THT Bloodstock. Kerry’s pioneering work in herd dynamics has brought THT Bloodstock international attention, with clients in both hemispheres. 

Teaming up with now THT Director of Equine Services & partner, Pete Denk, THT's international popularity continues to grow from sales to trouble-shooting underachievers, where profiling “who the horse is” in all of their unique character traits and tendencies helps clients at sales as well as assessing underachievers.

Thomas’ work in the field of equine behavioral genetics has pioneering applications in all the sport horse industries, but Thoroughbred Racing embraces the most of his efforts owing to his intensive study of Herd Dynamics & Behavioral Genetic Sequencing. Exciting new efforts are currently being made into the study of how emotional stress affects physical performance.

Considered by many the “Money Ball” approach for horse racing, Kerry moves forward with the belief that “the economics of behavior, simply makes sense.”
