Relevant health or lameness issues

Ruby had a fractured left hind splint bone in October 2015, she had surgery to remove the fractured section. She returned to full work and showed no lameness. An x-ray of the area in March 2017 raised no concerns .Ruby has osteoarthritis of both hock joints,and had corticosteriod injections in both in March 2017. These have had a positive effect, she is now sound and back in work. Insurence exclusions include both hind limbs except for accidental, external injuries involving an open wound. Details attached

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

During winter 2016 Ruby's ridden behaviour became incresingly challenging. A veterinary examination revealed left hind lameness and x-rays showed mild oesteoarthritic changes to her left hock. X-rays of her back revealed all was in normal limits. Her hock was medicated with coticosteriods. Follow up investigations showed vast improvements to her left leg but some lameness on the right , so this was also medicated. This leg too improved. May 2017 antibiotics given due to cut leg caused by playing with buddy.

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Ruby is good in traffic. She sees a range of farm vehclies daily. She regularly walks across a flyover over a major A road.

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

Ruby hacks out alone, she is sometimes slow when leaving the yard but is fine once she accepts she is going out. She is also used to hacking out with my children riding and me on foot. Ruby will go first or last with others. She will take the lead if other horses are scared. She can get over-excited if she is allowed to race or overtake. She happily walks through fords and over a flyover. She is fine with dogs and farm animals.

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

When Ruby was in pain before her osteoarthritis was diagnosed she became unpredictable to ride- suddenly rushing forward and sometimes bucking or being reluctant to go forward. This behaviour is not present since her hocks were medicated. Ruby is very greedy and will try to eat when being lead or ridden if not firmly handled. Ruby kicks the door at feeding time- but will stop if told off. Ruby is very smart and quick to learn.

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

No vet exclusions but jumping and schooling with small circles should be avoided. In the past Ruby been uncomfortable with hill work, this is now done happily in walk.
