Josey is a real people pony and loves attention. She enjoys her work and is a typical native so needs working 4-6 a week to keep her in healthy condition. She's a lovely pony to handle and will be your best friend.
With home commitments I'm struggling to keep her in enough work and would like a sensible, mature, kind and confident rider who wants to school and hack a few times a week without the commitment of owning.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Ideally looking for a student, an older person or someone with children who wants to ride a couple times a week. They need to be confident as Josey is young and can be a cheeky pony at times (no tip bits!) She is schooling well but still learning so needs a capable consistent rider. Josey will hack alone and in company and we have beautiful hacking over Cannock Chase, I'd prefer someone who is sensible ie happy to walk and trot when the ground is hard.

  • Details of the tack used to ride the horse

    Snaffle bit on cavasson bridle (noseband loose), GP saddle, brushing boots for hacking and schooling wraps for schooling.

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Josey is pretty bombproof in traffic although isn't keen on large tractors etc approaching from behind, she likes to see them so I normally stop in a gateway or side road to let them pass. However where she's stabled now we don't often go on the roads, she is good with cyclists, dogs and walkers but occasionally gets spooked if there is a large group with large rucksacks, camping gear etc. With reassurance she is fine.

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

On her own she can occasionally be nappy if unsure of something, with firm but fair reassurance she will go forward. She can spook at random objects, ie an unusual rock or tree stump but just does a sideways step. She can be strong to canter and just needs someone with an independent seat to steady her without hauling on her mouth. In company she likes to lead as walks quite quickly, she will go behind but needs regular half halts.She can get excitable when cantering in company.

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

I never have a problem handling her but my friends mum (none horsey) has found her cheeky trying to jog etc so she will take advantage if you aren't assertive. She respects boundaries with me. She's a forward going ride so not for a novice or unconfident rider.

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

NA

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

Typical native that holds/gains weight easily. Managed in summer by strip grazing.

Details of any problems when being ridden

As above can attempt to nap when hacked alone if rider is unsure/isn't confident she will pick up on this. Never reared or bucked. Sometimes strong in canter but never struggled to stop her - ridden in a snaffle at all times.. Generally very well behaved when schooling, can do 30-45 mins of this.

Horse vaccinated annually for flu and tetanus

Yes

Need to be stabled at night?

Yes, but only in winter

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

Yes

  • you will be allowed to ride the horse 2 days a week
  • during summer and winter complete this amount of work/duties: Two days a week (weekdays), visiting in the afternoon/evening (just once a day as I share with someone who does mornings so would need to be willing to bring in or feed their horse in the evening in return). Josey lives out March to October so poo picking, water filling, haynet filling required during these months and then she is in at night in the winter so would require mucking out, haynet filling, water filling etc during winter. Schooling or hacking.
  • make a monthly donation of £20 to the charity Horses4Homes
  • make a monthly contribution of £80 to the keep of this horse to be paid to the animal's owner
