Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Ok on quiet lanes, he hasn't seen anything big

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

Sensible during backing and ridden away not yet hacked alone, led out on his own and was very good

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

Doesn't like being left alone in the stable, gets very anxious. Ok when field mate taken away as long as can see other horses or has human company may have a paddy but gets over it. Can be an anxious person but looks to his human friend to help him through it

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

As long as he brought into work correctly as is fit enough I would think he'd be capable of a bit of everything

Explanation whether this horse is simply a good doer or whether he is prone to laminitis

He’s a good doer lives in fresh air, has never had laminitis.

Details of any problems when being ridden

He was a pleasure to do wants to please and tries hard, he has done the odd humpy bum but nothing to awful. This is probably due to a lack of understanding, He has not reared or napped during his backing and riding away, he is green so looks to his rider for confidenc and leadership.
