  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    I’m looking for someone to enjoy beautiful hacks with my pony Josey over Cannock Chase. She is kept on a lovely yard 5 minutes from Milford near Stafford. She would suit someone who has time in the days to ride during daylight. Over 18s only and 12 stone weight limit. She loves hacking and can trot and have the occasional canter but she cannot school or jump due to previous injury. She also benefits from groundwork & walking over poles so would suit someone who enjoys this.

  • Details of the tack used to ride the horse

    Snaffle bridle and GP saddle, brushing boots behind and scoot hoof boots all around or shod in front if hacking a lot on hard ground.

Relevant health or lameness issues

Over the past two years Josey has been diagnosed and treated for hind leg injuries and as such she cannot school or jump but is sound in straight lines so suitable for many more years of hacking. I'm happy to discuss her history with any potential sharer or loaner.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

As above we have spent two years treating her and rehabbing four times, attempting to bring her back into schooling level work but the vet agrees it is best for her to only hack in order to give her many more healthy years enjoying herself.

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Josey is calm and good with most traffic, just getting unsettled if a rattly trailer comes from behind. However where she is stabled allows riding straight into the forest with no road work necessary. Large logging vehicles can unsettle her but she is easy to reassure. If a mountain biker comes from behind or appears around a bend at speed this can sometimes spook her but this is nothing an experienced rider can't handle. There is a nearby village you can ride through and she is very good when we do this.

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

Hacks alone or in company. She is forward going and can be strong in company and can be spooky on her own so needs a confident rider. Never bucked or reared but can do an excited rocking horse leap about when in company sometimes & she can nap or spin and shoot off when spooking at something but nothing an experienced rider couldn't handle.

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

As above Josey is a lively forward going ride and certainly not a plod but she's not unsafe or nasty and tries her hardest to please even if scared by something. She needs someone who is well balanced and confident, kind and not nervous so they can reassure her if she is worried, especially if hacking alone as if she thinks you're worried she will nap and be stubborn.

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

Schooling and jumping.

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

Josey is prone to gaining weight in summer and if she does she has to come in during the day so would then need mucking out too.

Details of any problems when being ridden

As above she can do an excited rocking horse leap about when in company. She's much less spooky in company but on her own can spook and spin, or nap and be stubborn but she's not hard to get going.

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?

Yes

  • you will be allowed to ride the horse 3 days a week
  • during summer and winter complete this amount of work/duties: Ideally I am looking for someone to share Josey 3 days a week - she can be ridden two days and do groundwork/poles one day. I can be flexible on days. She lives out 24/7 most of the year so chores include hay soaking, poo picking, water filling & feeding on your days. She needs to come in during the day in summer if her weight increases so would then need mucking out too. I share ends of the day with Josey’s field neighbour’s owner so you would only need to go at one end of the day on your days but will also be feeding another pony.
