Lady is the most loving and affectionate mare, she loves spending time with people and having things done with her, she is not mareish in any way. Lady loves attention and is very trainable, she puts her own bridle on and is always eager to please, she loves being brushed and pampered and getting out and about doing new things and seeing new places. I have had her since she was 3 and broke her in at 4 and she was very easy to do, she can be left for months and you can just jump on and off you go.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Due to an injury she had some years ago she developed side bone and wasn't ridden for a couple of years due to lameness, this however has got better and I started riding her again last year but she is still quite green as I don't have time to keep riding her and also with her getting laminitis she has a lot of time off. She needs someone that can keep her on restricted grazing and spend time with her giving her the excercise and training that she needs, she will not keep a muzzle on.

  • Details of the tack used to ride the horse

    I have used a wintec wide gp saddle on her and more recently a Thorn saddle pad. She has a plain cavesson bridle with a full cheek happy mouth bit with a lozenge, she seems comfy in this as she doesn't like metal bits, she would probably be ok bitless.

Relevant health or lameness issues

She does suffer from laminitis and also has a limp due to sidebone which is more apparent when she has laminitis, last year I had her on another farm and I managed to restrict her grazing and I rode her for most of the year, even getting her out to a dressage test. Unfortunately this year she has suffered with low grade laminitis and I just do not have the time to excercise her, the limp gets better when she is being ridden and kept off grass, she does not require any medication or ongoing vet treatment.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

She has not needed any vet treatment in the past 12 months, the vet last saw her in August 2016 when she got laminitis and said just manage it best you can, in the winter she is sound but I just don't get time to ride her due to having another two horses to care for.

Details of the veterinary practice this horse is registered with

Brown moss Equine clinic | 01928 787500 | Brown Moss Farm, Norley Road, Norley, Cheshire WA6 6LJ | vets@brownmossequineclinic.co.uk | http://brownmossequineclinic.co.uk/

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

I have not had her out on roads due to lack of riding and being on a farm with quiet lanes, she has seen farmyard machinery, motorbikes and Quads and is not bothered by any of these.

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

I have not hacked her out, she has been ridden in sand paddock, field and indoor.

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

Being a Welsh Cob, Lady can sometimes get strong when being led, not very often but sometimes, she would need a confident, firm handler, however I find that if you just put the lead rope round her nose or use a bridle she will not pull you at all and walks very well and responds well to voice commands.

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

I don't think jumping would be very suitable for her but I took her to dressage last year on a soft surface and she was fab and loved it.

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

She is prone to laminitis

Details of any problems when being ridden

She has never given me any problems when being ridden, never bucked, reared or napped. She's not keen on being ridden in the rain though, she will turn away from the rain and not go forward although if you just keep riding her through this she soons gets over it.

Horse vaccinated annually for flu and tetanus

Need to be stabled at night?

Welsh Section D, Cob

The Welsh Cob (Section D) is the largest size within the Welsh Pony and Cob breed registries. They must be taller than 13.2 hands(54 inches, 137 cm), with no upper height limit. They are used as riding animals for both adults and children, and are also used for driving. They are known for their hardiness and gentle nature.

Though they are the tallest and stockiest of the Welsh sections, the head remains full of pony character, with large eyes, and neat ears. The legs may be relatively short, also akin to pony proportions. Mature stallionshave somewhat cresty necks, those of mares are generally leaner. Like the section C, they have powerful, extravagant action. Greycoloring is rarer in the section D cob than other types of Welsh ponies, but bold white markingsare common.

Today, the Section D is best known for use in harness driving, but they are also shown under saddle and in hand. Like other Welsh ponies, Cobs are also exhibited over fences as hunters and jumpers.
