Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer
I originally bought him as a project to rehabilitate as I think had a bad start in life. Consequently he is very un-trusting until he gets to know you and can be quite scared of new things. If you are a confident knowledgeable rider you will be able to realise his true potential. I have had him nearly four years and have spent that time giving him a loving home. He is fully fit for riding but would equally do well as a companion. He lives out all year round but is equally at home in the stable which he re
Relevant health or lameness issues
He has previously sprained his nearside hock after slipping on ice a year or two back although he is fully sound on it now. Only a slight puffiness remains.
Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months
he is fully up to date with his booster jabs and annual check ups. Although I bought him as an eight year old (that's what his passport says) the vet said at the time he was not older than six - so in fact he could be only ten years old......

Details of any individual behavioural traits which may influence the type of person best suited to take on the horse
I think he had a bad start in life and is a worrier. I am told he came off a jumping yard where he was not treated very well. Hence I have spent the last few years giving him a loving caring home. He really needs a confident knowledgeable person who is not phased by his sharpness. On the ground he is very loving and always calls to me, loves the attention of grooming, bathing, sheath washing etc. He would definitely suit a person who knows natural horsemanship which I have used to help build his trust ove
Details of the activities that the horse must not participate in due to previous injury
He has no fitness/soundness issues but does have an aversion to poles/showjumps hence he is not suitable for showjumping activity. He is very scared of them.
Details of any problems when being ridden
He can easily spook and needs a confident rider. He hacks out on his own or in company. When out hacking he can be quite unpredictable and back up if he is unsure of something (those 'horse eating' grit boxes for example). He is fairly OK in traffic and has safely encountered tractors/implements/motorbikes. For some unknown reason he finds parked vehicles deserve a swerve and a good inspection. In the school he works very nicely doing flatwork and lunging. He has never reared or bucked but did bolt onc
Details of the tack used to ride the horse
He rides with a snaffle and is a responsive ride. I use a GP saddle. Brakes are never a problem
