Archie is a sweet natured, pretty, sensitive horse. He caught my daughters eye at auction as youngster in 2013 and she bought him to keep and produce for herself as a low level eventer. He tries hard to please and is a very responsive horse and quick learner. All his basic training and manners are in place, but he is not at all confident and needs someone he knows he can trust. He is accustomed to light, rural traffic, hacking on and of road, alone or with others, happyto work in an arena or out on grass

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Archie needs a confident, experienced, caring home, with at least one other horse, where he will be worked lightly but regularly to build his confidence and strength. He comes straight back into work happily after a rest, but is a little nervous to begin with. He can live out and did so with our herd, in a well sheltered field, unrugged last winter. He builds a very good relationship with a person he trusts and his new owner must be prepared to believe in him, and have plenty of time for him.

    Fuller Happy Mouth snaffle bridle, I use a stock saddle when riding him, he has a Wintec dressage saddle of his own, and he is also fitted to my event saddle.

Relevant health or lameness issues

After being brokenin in 2016 Archie fell in the field and suffered a very painful muscle tear/haematoma. He was treated by Sue Dyson at AHT and came home to be rested and rehabilitated by his owner's Mum, while the owner had a baby. After successful rehabilitation he went to Jason Webb, (australianhorsetraining.co.uk) to be restarted in February 2017. He has had continuing physiotherapy and both the vets and physios are happy with him working. There is a slight unlevelness, but he is improving.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

Treated by Sue Dyson at AHT for acute hind lameness in 2016, successfully rehabilitated. All vet and physio reports available. His gait feels uneven and his transitions are not smooth, but he has been steadily improving. It feels worse than it looks from the ground. Reports are available.

Details of the veterinary practice this horse is registered with

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Archie is quite accustomed to light rural village traffic, including 'the school run', buses, and bin lorries. He needs to be ridden positively as his is wary of the world.

Please describe your horses behaviour when hacking out alone and in company

Archie has hacked out alone and in company, he loves following and switching off, but is quite willing to lead. Thought he does need to be ridden positively. He does not get excited, or 'hot up'.

Details of any individual behavioural traits which may influence the type of person best suited to take on the horse

Archie is not a bold, confident horse. He thinks the world in full of monsters and looks to his owner/rider/handler to give him confidence and persuade him that everything will be fine. He needs a firm, caring, confident experienced owner. He is a willing, quick, learner when he trusts and is trusted.

Details of the activities that the horse must not participate in due to previous injury

Light work probably best to begin with, then it's a matter of seeing how he goes and doing what he is capable of.

Details of any problems when being ridden

Archie is still very green, and can rush momentarily and stop and go in spurts, especially if the legs aids are applied harshly or suddenly. He has never done anything nasty. He is a very light, responsive ride and can go very nicely.

Horse vaccinated annually for flu and tetanus

Yes

Need to be stabled at night?

Yes, but only in winter

Need to be put on restricted grazing to limit weight gain?

No
