Nick Lucking was perfectly professional and accommodating in helping us launch our wholesale online portal. At MoMA we tend to have many rounds of reviews and adjustments to any visual presentation. Nick gracefully navigated these reviews with patience and creative solutions. Would work with him again.

Thought Horse did a fantastic job on my projects. They got to work right away, finished quickly and best of all were straight forward on time requirements. The end work product was great in all cases.
They were also good communicators during the project design phase, which can be hard to find with developers. Overall great experience!

Tainted Pepper

Nick was such a professional. Great communicator! He worked quickly and always gave me an update on the job status and best yet, he came in under budget!! I appreciated the fact that he didn't take advantage of me because I know nothing about web design and coding so he could have easily said it took longer than it did. I will continue to use them to help me update my website and highly recommend!


Great fast service, and easy to communicate with. Will definitely use again!


Thought Horse is one of the best partners I've found in building my business. They're super talented and they just know their stuff -- both from a design and technical standpoint. I appreciate the smart advice I got even before hiring them and then their creative, thorough work once I did. Nick and his team are a pleasure to work with.


Working with Nick at Thought Horse has totally helped us take our new website BetterListen! to the next level. I plan on using their great team on an ongoing basis. Their great work has already had a positive impact on our business.

Abbie from Thought Horse provided SEO expertise for my online art gallery. What impressed me was his promptness in responding to my requirements, the patience and clarity with which he explained how SEO works and the steps he took to help drive higher quality traffic to my online store. I'm seeing an uptrend on organic searches leading to my site so thanks for a great job done!


Nick and Melody made our first e-commerce experience easy and understandable. They were available when we needed them and more than met our expectations. I would highly recommend using Thought Horse; we plan on continuing to use them for our needs moving forward.

Procure Inc.

I've worked with Thought Horse for a little over a month now & I'm quite pleased with the results that we've achieved thus far.

Nick & Jamie are both very easygoing guys & a pleasure to work with. They both truly understand our needs regarding Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

I think the following statistics say it all:

259% conversion
+450% transactions
revenue + 67%
average value - 69%
unique purchases + 333%
quantity + 900%

After having lackluster results with our prior SEO company, these guys seem like a breath of fresh air. They return calls, answer emails & are always prompt. Thought Horse laid out a solid plan & followed it through. They seem like old friends rather than business partners & that says a lot!

Keep up the good work guys!

Texas Timber Bat Co.

Nick at Though Horse was great! He took our ideas, concepts and requirements and translated and them into deliverables. We used Though Horse for customizing our data collection process + basic design changes + SEO best practices. We enjoyed collaborating and receiving his feedback on how to manage the Shopify platform; Thought Horse was upfront and fair with cost. As our website continues to grow and change, I'm sure we will be speaking with Nick again!

We contacted Thought Horse to customize our site's functionality, which was executed perfectly. They are pleasant to work with; punctual, efficient, professional, and informative. On top of providing us with the exact customizations we required, they communicated with us throughout the process, asked questions, and kept us involved in order to provide the best, and cleanest programming solution.


Working with Thought Horse is great. We found them very knowledgeable, quick and reasonable. Nick and Melody aren't just Shopify Experts, they are Shopify Geniuses. They exceeded our expectations on every task. Plus, their SEO / SEM services have already started driving lots more traffic to the site.

Working with Nick was so easy and enjoyable. He was quick to respond to my initial RFP with a reasonable/manageable price. In addition he was clear with his suggestions and solutions.

I would recommend him to anyone!!

Nick was amazing. I'd built out most of the site using the Clearflex theme but there were areas of the design I wanted to change that were well beyond my abilities. Not only did he respond to my bid request promptly, but he had everything done the same day. When I found a few more things I wanted to change those were completed the same day also. Everything was done as requested and looked great.


Thought Horse was an exceptional company to work with and I would highly recommend them. Their design work was exactly what I had pictured for my website if not above and beyond what I had wanted! They also met all of the deadlines I had which was what had been my main source of stress through the whole process. It's also a plus that they can do both design and web development.


Working with Nick & Brian was a great experience. They were fantastic at explaining in a clear and simple language, free of code-speak, as to what my options were for customization. And were capable of making the must nuanced changes to my site as well as seamlessly integrated Shopify into it on schedule and stayed within my budget!

Thanks guys!

Thought Horse is, in a word: Amazing! I can't recommend them highly enough! I just started a business and needed help with every aspect of getting my shop up and running. The communication was prompt and clear and the on-going discussions resulted in the changes to our theme that were exactly what we wanted, AND the price was very reasonable! They are SO easy to work with I will use them again!
