Magic is a beautiful, kind mare who is very sensitive. She can only be rehomed as a companion although she would be a great horse for someone looking to do Pirelli or another groundwork type of schooling. She is incredibly sweet natured and gentle. She is very sharp and spooky to ride and can be like this in a new environment but once she settles she is great. She can be quite dominant in the field but has lived out with mares and geldings.

A Hanoverian is a warmblood horse originating in Germany, which is often seen in the Olympic Games and other competitive English riding styles, and have won gold medals in all three equestrian Olympic competitions. It is one of the oldest, most numerous, and most successful of the warmbloods. Originally a carriage horse, infusions of Thoroughbred blood lightened it to make it more agile and useful for competition. The Hanoverian is known for a good temperament, athleticism, beauty, and grace.

Irrespective of their unusual colour, their antiquity, and the fact that until Hanover ceased to exist as an independent state, the whites and the creams were respectively the horses of the king and queen, there is nothing extremely remarkable about them. They were all tall, powerful animals, rather inclined to coarseness, and not particularly good about the shoulders, but no doubt serviceable if put to work, which, however, they very rarely were. Their tails, which were squared, extended down to their heels, and their manes were correspondingly long.

The horses are elegant, strong, and robust. They are bred to be willing and trainable, and have a strong back, powerful body, athletic movement, and strong limbs.

Hanoverian color:

  • Chestnut, bay, brown, black, and gray are found the most often.

Hanoverian size:

  • The horses can be 15.3-17.2 hh, but most are in the range of 16-16.2 hh.

Hanoverian weight:

  • Their weight can be between 750 and 1100 lb (340-500 kg).

Hanoverian temperament:

  • The Hanoverian Horse is willing, bold, sensible and intelligent.

Hanoverian life expectancy:

Hanoverian uses:

  • They were used as a carriage horse, farm horse and also for military use as a calvary horse and artillery horse. Later it became increasingly used as a riding horse. Now the Hanoverian horse is an ideal general riding horse and competition horse.

Hanoverian influence:

  • The bigger of the local mares were refined with Holsteins, Thoroughbreds and Cleveland Bays, and later some Neapolitan, Andalusian, Prussian, and Mecklenburg stock.

Hanoverian interesting facts:

The success of Hanoverian horses in competition proves the soundness of the breed - 13 medals in the 1992 Olympics and four consecutive World Breeding Championships as well as five gold, one silver and two bronze medals in dressage and show jumping at the 1996 Olympics.
