Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Arti is very good in traffic, he is not bothered by farm vehicles, tractors, large lorries or busses! He has been ridden on country lanes and busier road (roundabouts with traffic lights and off dual carriage ways!) with no problems. I purchased him from yard in Surrey very near to a busy dual carriage way and the only was to open spaces was over this road.

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

Arti is happy to hack alone and in company. He is very good in traffic. He can be strong in open spaces when out with others but he does respond to a firm 'No'. Overall he is not 'nappy' and can be a real 'confidence giver' to a nervous rider.

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

Overall Arti is very easy going and not spooky or nappy and is absolutely fantastic in traffic. He can get strong in open spaces when out with other horses but this is mainly if they get too far ahead but he will listen when told 'No'.

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

Arti is mainly fit for hacking only and some light schooling only.

As above, can be strong in open spaces when out with others. In the 18 months I have owned him he has only put in 2 small bucks which were not malicious, more excitement!
