  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Needs confident, experienced, capable patient rider with thorough understanding of Arabians. An owner who is willing to be lead by what they can both enjoy together, rather than by their riding ambitions. Needs to be worked regularly not because he is difficult to ride if only ridden twice a week, but in order to move his training forward.

  • Details of the tack used to ride the horse

    Saddle Company cob 16.5" and Micklem bridle (without bit). Can be bitted but no need in my opinion. Is barefoot with Cavello Trek boots when necessary

Passed pre purchase vetting with comment on near hind being slightly weaker but no lameness then or since. Needs fly rug as a bit itchy but not badly.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

Scoped for ulcers, treated and re scoped clear. Has vet prescribed preventative supplement which must be continued. Back regularly given maintenance physio treatment. Has habit of stretching back legs out but this has been extensively investigated and vet could find nothing says he is moving better than ever (same vet that did vetting)

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Excellent on our busy country lanes. Not tested in fast main road traffic.

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

Goes first or last in group of up to 4. Not competitive. Will turn and go away from other horses. Does not rush home. Calm on known routes. More anxious in new environments. Good but takes confidence from rider when alone.

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

Holds anxiety in and hides it from you so you must be able to read this and remain calm and assertive. Goes rigid when anxious. If very upset in high stimulii situations this will be very clear in his body language.

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

No, although he is not ready for competition due to anxiety. He may be able to do some low level competition in future with development by the right owner.

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

Good doer

Only ever bucked once in 4yrs since I got him.

Arab horse

The Arab or Arabian horse originates from the desert lands of Asia and the most famous are the horses of the Bedouin Arabs, known as the Original or Elite Arab. Through selective breeding the Bedouins developed an Arab horse which was tough and yet beautiful. It was these Arab horses that were used as a calvary horse by the Moslems and taken to North Africa and into Spain and France. Many Arab horses were left behind when the Moslems left and were left to breed with local horses creating such breeds as the Andalusian horse. The UK imported Arab horses in the late 19th and early 20th century from Arabia.
