Matty was originally a rescue. She has blossomed with lots of turnout, rehab. work, and lots of hacking. She is bombproof in traffic, hacks out alone or in company, goes first or last. Used to dogs, sheep and low flying jets! Easy to catch, easy to do. Has been hacked out in company by inexperienced 11 and 7 year olds. She is well behaved even with long gaps between hacks; my instructor describes her as an alert and willing ride. Travels well.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Matty needs a capable, calm and steady rider. She has not had much schooling in the past, but responds well to firm, gentle and consistent handling and routines, and is learning fast - my instructor is impressed. She would suit a kind mature rider, who doesn't need a speed merchant! She does need equine company, but can be left alone. She is currently stabled at night, but could live out with shelter.

  • Details of the tack used to ride the horse

    Plain bridle, usually ridden without noseband. Bit : eggbutt snaffle with lozenge. Plain GP saddle.

Relevant health or lameness issues

Matty had a very poor vet prognosis three years ago, but has now improved immeasurably. She has some hind stiffness when leaving stable, slightly unsound at trot (although willing to do so!) but always eager to ride out. She wears Scoot Boots (fronts only) when hacking out.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

On arrival, sedated for clipping very raw sore legs, prior to Dectomax treatment for mites, now a mild and very occasional problem only; six monthly Dectomax injections mean she needs worming for tapeworm only once per year. Annual injections (flu/tetanus). Dental checks twice yearly.

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

Needs calm, consistent, patient and capable handler - although she is about 15, she has not had much obedience work or schooling, with understanding learns very quickly. Likes routine. Likes to be top horse in the field, and likes her own space, but never nasty. Very flirty (lots of head tossing!) but never ever moody or difficult. Always easy to handle. Introduced gradually to my grandchildren, now happy with three small people grooming her at once!

No trotting on hard or uneven ground. Cantering on soft ground only.
