Foxy is a lovely natured horse and has been in our family since being an unbroken 2 year old.She was professionally broken at 3 and lightly hacked until 2007 when my old endurance horse retired and I started with her instead. She was an excellent ride and upgraded to intermediate level very quickly winning lots of awards. She was never vetted out and only retired to produce a couple of lovely foals.She was always a fun ride and enjoyed endurance too.Brilliant with vet,farrier,travelling and lives in or out.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    I just want a loving,forever home for this truly special horse.We have lost most of our grazing so am very sadly having to rehome her.This is a very difficult decision as Foxy has been my best friend for several years & I have had many happy hours in her company.She is a true character & ideally I would like her to be a companion to another friendly horse, living out on good grass.Although she would enjoy an occasional ride if her new owner wanted to.She is quite sprightly for her age and always inquisitive

Relevant health or lameness issues

Foxy has been in excellent health all her life with no issues or lameness other than the occasional scratch or graze horses always pick up in the field. Her only issue was some laser treatment she had about 6 years ago in place of a tie back operation, which was totally successful and she was ridden successfully afterwards and it has had no long term effects on her health or performance.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

She has only seen the vet for her annual booster in the past 12 months.

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Foxy is totally bombproof in traffic she is used to farm machinery and as an endurance horse has seen most hazards and deals with them in a calm manner. She totally trusts people so if you are not scared of something she isn't its as simple as that.She is a true gem and if we weren't losing our grazing she would be staying with us for many more years to come.

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

Foxy is fine hacking out alone, she is not nappy in any way. She hacks out well with others although prefers to be the lead horse of a group-following years of being the lead horse of our family group when out on endurance rides.If hacking from home her walk is faster when she realises we are heading back, but I think that is the same with all horses-certainly all of mine!

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

Foxy is a true character, sometimes I think she thinks she is a human not a horse. If one of my other horses misbehaves she looks at them as if to say 'stupid horse'.She makes me laugh and is very affectionate.She gets on well with other horses but isn't the boss, she is usually quite low down in the 'pecking order' and will not try and bully other horses off their food, so may need to be looked out for if she is with another horse who would steal her feeds as she is not likely to stick up for herself.

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

No

Details of any problems when being ridden

No problems or vices at all. Never bucks, rears or kicks(I wouldn't keep a horse like that as we have young children in the family) If brought back into riding she may be sprightly for a while as it has been so long but the excitement would soon settle down I'm sure.I would have no problems putting a saddle on now and riding her around the field(she would need shoeing before going on the roads)

Horse vaccinated annually for flu and tetanus

Yes

Need to be stabled at night?

No he can live out all year round

Need to be put on restricted grazing to limit weight gain?

No

Pure Arabian Sire X Thoroughbred and she has 1/8 Irish Sports Horse. V similar to Anglo Arab: "...Refinement, bone and endurance of the Arabian, and the speed and scope of the Thoroughbred though they should not look entirely like either a Thoroughbred or an Arabian. They have a long neck, prominent withers, a short and strong body (more sturdy than the Thoroughbred), and a deep chest. They have fine heads, although not overly dished in profile, and have strong bone." Her breeding means she should her very suited to dressage and possibly endurance riding. Lovely, bold floating strides.
