Finn is a fantastic, kind and willing pony. He does have some issues with his confidence with people he doesn't know, but hes soon won over by food. Finn loves to hack in company and alone, he is good in traffic but can look at the larger stuff, he will never bolt just might shy. Finn has previously been very well schooled including lateral work which he is very good at, he hasn't been schooled properly for the last 2 years. He will happily pop a fence up to 75cm on a surface and no more than 60cm on grass.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    I believe that Finn would be fantastic for a lady rider looking to compete unaffiliated and hack on a quiet but talented pony. He is looking for a slightly slower pace of life but isn't ready to retire yet. He is still very capable of competing to prelim and jumping up to 75cm, he just cant be jumped on hard ground so a school at the yard would be a must for him. He loves to lunge and do pole work. He has hunted and done fun rides in the past but would prefer he didn't do these now.

  • Details of the tack used to ride the horse

    Finn can come with some rugs, but unfortunately no tack. I will provide tack for a trial if required.

Relevant health or lameness issues

Finn has had some intermittent lameness (Off Fore) in 2016, which after investigation was put down to his conformation, he was shod in bar shoes for 12 months with back shoes and led a full career including hunting and eventing. He has been in regular front shoes for 12 months and has had his work load reduced to not include jumping on grass or fast work on hard ground. He hacks well and still jumps on a surface. I would be willing to share all vet reports and X-rays with suitable parties.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

Finn hasn't had any vet treatment in the last 12 months, other than being prescribed sedation paste for clipping.

Details of the veterinary practice this horse is registered with

Adele Lewis - Cotswold Equine | 07887563132 | Filkins, Gloucestershire. | adele@cotswoldequine.co.uk |

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

He is good to hack, better in company but perfectly safe alone. In sensible traffic he is very good but could look at larger vehicles but will always pass.

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

He is more likely to take a look at something when alone than in company, he isn't likely to spook or bolt. He might be startled by a bird flying out of a hedge, but normally safe and relaxed. He has happily cantered in company and isn't too strong but prefers to be at the front or along side.

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

Finn has been treated roughly in the past so can be a little head shy, if he is in a new paddock with lots of grass he can be silly to catch. He will always catch for food and lives out in a head collar normally. I'd prefer a person who is quietly confident as if you are nervous he will react to that.

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

No Hunting, autumn hunting could be possible No eventing on grass, arena eventing would be fine Must be jumped on surface

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

He is a good doer, never had any lamintis but doesn't need much grass or hard feed.

Details of any problems when being ridden

no ridden issues, just looks for confidence in the rider.

Horse vaccinated annually for flu and tetanus

No

Need to be stabled at night?
