Meet Jonny Rye! I've had him for 5 years and he is a handsome and affectionate boy who loves human and four legged company. He has comfortable paces for dressage and a bold, scopey jump, schools and lunges very well and enjoys going for hacks and jumping. He has the capability to participate in local level unaffiliated competitions (showing, dressage, jumping) or would be equally happy with an easier life! He's a gentleman in hand and in the stable. Looking for someone to love him as much as I do.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    I am looking for an experienced owner and confident rider. He is sensible but he is not suitable for those who are very novice or not confident. He does like horsey company, so must have a field companion(s). Jonny would suit someone competent who wants a fun allrounder for RC activities, pleasure rides etc or alternatively he would be a happy hacker. Temporary loan but would consider longer term loan to the right person.

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Jonny is well behaved in traffic (he used to be stabled near a busy A road which we had to cross on a daily basis) and is used to seeing tractors and farm machinary. However, he doesn't like sudden loud motorbikes. He has been exposed to large lorries when hacking out with sensible company and has behaved well but not experienced large lorries whilst hacking out alone.

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

Jonny hacks alone but is sharper than when with company. When hacking alone, he can occasionally be a bit nappy on the way out, walking very slowly, planting and will march home but nothing a confident, experienced rider couldn't deal with. In company he doesn't nap and will lead or follow. He can get strong in canter when riding in a group and can bottle up if stuck behind a slower horse. He doesn't kick or buck under saddle and will hack side by side or single file. He's used to dogs off the lead.

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

Jonny can get exuberant when he's doing something new or hasn't done something for a while e.g. cross country - he will be excited to start with but working him forward soon settles him. When his blood is up he can be stronger when jumping or doing faster work out in the open but does pull up well. He is well behaved in hand and in the stable and is a delight to handle. Travels in a lorry and larger side loading trailors but he hasn't been travelled in a smaller, rear loading trailor

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

No. I would not want Jonny to participate in hunting or team chasing (no previous injury just injury prevention)

Details of any problems when being ridden

Occassional napping when hacking alone (planting, walking slowly, sometimes backs up) can be prevented by positive riding and encouragement. This tends to be when hacking away from home yard. He is fine when hacking with others ( horses or a someone on foot or a bike) or travels elsewhere to hack.

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

Thoroughbred

The Thoroughbred is a horse breed best known for its use in horse racing. Although the word "thoroughbred" is sometimes used to refer to any breed of purebred horse, it technically refers only to the Thoroughbred breed. Thoroughbreds are considered a hotblooded horse, known for their agility, speed and spirit.

The head should be correctly proportioned to the rest of the body, displaying a good flat forehead and wide-set intelligent eyes. Carried relatively low, the head should sit well on a neck which is somewhat longer and lighter than in other breeds.

Good quality Thoroughbreds have high withers, a deep chest, a short back, good depth of hindquarters, a lean body, and long legs.

Color: Thoroughbred horses are most often bay, seal brown, chestnut, black, or gray. The can also be roan, palomino or white. Coat patterns that have more than one color on the body, such as Pinto or Appaloosa, are not recognized by the breed registries.

Size: Thoroughbreds usually stand between 15 and 17 hands high.

Weight: Thoroughbred can weigh in range of 1000 to 1200lbs (450-550kg).

Temperament: Being a hot-blooded horse, the Thoroughbred is courageous and alert. Sometimes nervous, these horses are spirited and excitable. As true racing machines, the Thoroughbred is fast and athletic.

Life expectancy: Average life span of a Thoroughbred horse is somewhere between 25 to 35 years, depending on the health care provided.

Origin: The Thoroughbred's genetic origin is Arabian. The founding Arabian stallions which were brought to Britain in the late 1600s and early 1700s were bred to domestic mares.

Thoroughbred uses:

Although the Thoroughbred is primarily bred for racing, the breed is also used for show jumping and combined training because of its athleticism, and many retired and retrained race horses become fine family riding horses, dressage horses, and youth show horses. The larger horses are sought after for hunter/jumper and dressage competitions, whereas the smaller horses are in demand as polo ponies.

Thoroughbred influence: Arabian, Barb and Turk.
