Chip - beautiful branded Hanoverian. Well put together and always been sound. He is in full work and will jump, do dressage, jump ditches, go through water, hack in front, behind, traffic, alone. He has been with me from 1 and as you can see from the pictures, has been exposed to everything I could access. He is bred for dressage (Wanninger) and is super trainable. If you want him to learn it then give him the patience and he will do anything for you. He is fine to shoe and clip and generally great company.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Chip is big! 17.2hh and still potentially an inch to go. He feeds off the person who handles him and needs someone who will be clear and firm with him. He is a dope to hack out unless you are tense and grippy, in which case he can become joggy and irritable. Chip has not always been the biggest fan of loading but would be great for dressage - so if you have big enough transport and don't mind doing a practise load and feed between shows he will be fine. He is easy to jump, so popping a fence is no issue.

  • Details of the tack used to ride the horse

    Chip is in a jumping saddle - medium wide fit. He has a pad under it because it needs flocking and is sitting a little low! Stud or normal girth. Verbindend snaffle, though I also have this in a universal, which I use with a leather curb strap when he gets more full of himself, as it immediately stops any 'humping'. He has very good brakes!! I am working more on getting the accelerator a bit sharper! He has a breastplate because it is my preference and a bib martingale because he will grab.

Relevant health or lameness issues

Chip roars. He has been hobdayed still makes noise - this is why he is on here. This is an insurance exemption. Vets at Newmarket saw videos of him at his worst and said just keep working, he will be better the fitter and less tense he is but it is not harming him. He is fitter now and can easily do an hour of hard work (50% canter in this heat) but as soon as he goes in the SJ ring it gets bad. I want to showjump - but am stressing him out. He has a couple of cosmetic small marks from field injuries.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

Chip has not seen a vet except for vaccinations. He has a very strong sound back and sees the physio for maintenance with no concerns raised. He has only ever been lame with a foot abscess age 2. He was hobdayed age 2.

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Chip is fine in traffic. If something very noisy goes past he may take a little hop forward, but he lives by a busy road and previously at a farm. Chip is not a runner!

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

Prefers company, but just means on your own you have to kick a bit as he leaves the yard quite slowly! He can be a bit of an effort to get cantering first time but once he has warmed his long old legs up he will get a move on. He is not strong. In company he is fine in front or behind. I can walk while my partner canters off and jumps and then follow safely! He will hardly bat an eye lid at a pigeon jumping out of the hedge! He is happy to jump decent sized fences including ditches.

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

Did I mention he is big! You can't be intimidated - he'll know. If staff at the yard handle him there is a chiffney available if they are not sure, but they don't use it now they know him. He is still teething and can be mouthy, but not nasty. He chews things - including the front of his rugs - I just use a bit of cribbox to deter. He hates the flies and the moment is in during the day. He could be out 24 hours spring and autumn, but is better off in overnight in the wettest of winter.

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

No, but please do not have him with the intention of competing SJ above 70cm. He will do a small course happily, but by the time we have jumped 90 he is roaring badly and it's due to the stress. We moved yards in November and changed vets - so it would be no use contacting our vet for info! I can show you emails from Newmarket if it helps. Other than that it is really a case of see how he goes.

Details of any problems when being ridden

Chip HAS bucked and is most likely to if you push him when he is struggling with something (currently keeping out on a circle in left canter) but it is never nasty or repeated. He can 'hump' if he is overexcited, but again this is rare.

Horse vaccinated annually for flu and tetanus

Yes

Need to be stabled at night?

Hanoverian

A Hanoverian is a warmblood horse originating in Germany, which is often seen in the Olympic Games and other competitive English riding styles, and have won gold medals in all three equestrian Olympic competitions. It is one of the oldest, most numerous, and most successful of the warmbloods. Originally a carriage horse, infusions of Thoroughbred blood lightened it to make it more agile and useful for competition. The Hanoverian is known for a good temperament, athleticism, beauty, and grace.

Irrespective of their unusual colour, their antiquity, and the fact that until Hanover ceased to exist as an independent state, the whites and the creams were respectively the horses of the king and queen, there is nothing extremely remarkable about them. They were all tall, powerful animals, rather inclined to coarseness, and not particularly good about the shoulders, but no doubt serviceable if put to work, which, however, they very rarely were. Their tails, which were squared, extended down to their heels, and their manes were correspondingly long.

The horses are elegant, strong, and robust. They are bred to be willing and trainable, and have a strong back, powerful body, athletic movement, and strong limbs.

Hanoverian color:

  • Chestnut, bay, brown, black, and gray are found the most often.

Hanoverian size:

  • The horses can be 15.3-17.2 hh, but most are in the range of 16-16.2 hh.

Hanoverian weight:

  • Their weight can be between 750 and 1100 lb (340-500 kg).

Hanoverian temperament:

  • The Hanoverian Horse is willing, bold, sensible and intelligent.

Hanoverian life expectancy:

  • Hanoverian is an extremely long-lived breed of horse.

Hanoverian origin:

  • Germany.

Hanoverian uses:

  • They were used as a carriage horse, farm horse and also for military use as a calvary horse and artillery horse. Later it became increasingly used as a riding horse. Now the Hanoverian horse is an ideal general riding horse and competition horse.

Hanoverian influence:

  • The bigger of the local mares were refined with Holsteins, Thoroughbreds and Cleveland Bays, and later some Neapolitan, Andalusian, Prussian, and Mecklenburg stock.

Hanoverian interesting facts:

The success of Hanoverian horses in competition proves the soundness of the breed - 13 medals in the 1992 Olympics and four consecutive World Breeding Championships as well as five gold, one silver and two bronze medals in dressage and show jumping at the 1996 Olympics.
