The Denver Broncos will have some additional horsepower when they play in the Super Bowl on Feb. 2.

According to the Denver Post on Thursday, the Denver Broncos’ living mascot Thunder will be at MetLife Stadium when his team takes on the Seattle Seahawks.

Thunder can be seen at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium, galloping across the gridiron every time the Broncos score. Details are still being worked out with the league; so it remains to be seen if he will be allowed the same opportunity during the big game.

Thunder (who is actually Thunder II) is ridden by accomplished equestrian Ann Judge-Wegener; and has served as the Broncos mascot for 10 years.

Thunder II took over for the original Thunder (who debuted with the team in 1993) in 2004. Thunder I, who passed away in 2009, was in attendance at Super Bowl XXXII in 1998 and Super Bowl XXXIII in 1999 (both Broncos victories).

This will mark Thunder II’s first appearance at a game outside of the Mile High City.
