Lottie is a clever horse and there will always be new challenges. We have enjoyed most disciplines including dressage, show jumping, cross country, jumpcross, working hunter and utility events. She would make a great Le Trec horse. I have also started doing Parelli with her in the last year which has been very rewarding as she is so quick to learn. She has also been ridden by my daughter who was a novice 10 year old when Lottie arrived and has taken her to her first competitions.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Someone who is competent and capable in handling horses. Lottie can be challenging to handle on the ground, quite a dominant character and has been known to try to bite, also needs company of other horses but will be the dominant one if turned out together.

  • Details of the tack used to ride the horse

    GP saddle with numnah or cloth. Double jointed snaffle bit (recommended by horse dentist in past to avoid damage to molar teeth). I use a flash noseband but do not fasten tightly. Martingale for cross country.

Relevant health or lameness issues

Lottie is currently in good health. She has been excluded from respiratory issues due to having a minor virus in early 2017 which required no treatment but insurer's excluded this anyway. Also excluded from problems in off fore due to minor lameness in 2017 which was treated with box rest and bute. Didn't have a specific diagnosis as when vet wanted to do a lameness work up she was sound again. No problems since.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

Only routine vaccinations in past 12 months.

Details of the veterinary practice this horse is registered with

Wherry Veterinary Group | 01986 892771 | Hillside Rd East, Bungay, Suffolk,NR35 1RX | none | wherryvets.com

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

She is very good in traffic. I mainly ride on quiet roads but when I tried her we had to cross a dual carriageway! We regularly meet small lorries and farm traffic and cyclists.

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

She prefers to hack in company and is reluctant to take the lead,when out alone she needs the rider to be confident as she is a bit more spooky to ride alone.

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

While suitable to be ridden by a fairly novice rider she is quite dominant on the ground and is not suitable as a child's pony.

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

None specifically.

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

She is a very good doer and I usually strip graze during the spring and summer.

Details of any problems when being ridden

She has never bucked or reared but has occasionally napped particularly if asked to go in front of other horses or while out alone. If alone I have found quiet persistence more effective than 'bullying' techniques.

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
