Special loving and caring mare in her prime that deserves all the love and attention in the world that I unfortunately don't have the time to give her anymore. Injured 2 years ago - she has been a happy hack the last few years but enjoyed life. I am finding it harder and harder to find the time for her and unfortunately been on a livery yard winter months shes stuck in and bored a lot of the time. She is good with being clipped, the vet, the dentist, farrier and loading etc etc.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    I would ideally love someone with their own place so she could have even an hour out everyday in the winter. Someone that is confident around horses and has knowledge of working with horses (responsible and reliable, sensible and safe). She is a lovely horse and fairly straightforward to ride/deal with but is forward going and does have a few quirks being a Thoroughbred (nothing nasty, but is strong!) – hence the need for someone who is confident and used to dealing with and being around horses.

Relevant health or lameness issues

She must be kept barefoot, no shoes. She is sound but she is not to jump or be lunged. She enjoys hacking or just being a big pet, loves as much fuss as someone can give as you will see from my pictures. I haven't done much schooling for a while but she does have the ability with work to excel here for dressage - see dressage sheets from early years.

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

We have been lucky enough to not encounter heavy traffic as rides are all off road. But being on a livery yard on a farm - we encounter tractors, wagons, cars, quads etc. She has no issues with traffic.

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

She prefers to hack out with friends as is much more relaxed but I also hack out alone regularly. In winter she is more on her toes (at times not always) due to being stabled a lot as we are on a livery yard and turnout isn't great and I only get time to ride on weekends. But when she is turned out and her brain stimulated daily she is much happier and in the summer i'd go as far to say shes almost 100% bombproof.

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

She loves people the best (she would stand all day being brushed and loved as you will see from my various pictures. She is good with other hoses but can be possessive of her food and moves them from the gate if shes waiting to be in really just like (most greedy horses). She is also odd in that she is as quiet as a lamb but can be very strong. I am 5ft 3 and 10 stone (so not a wrestler by no means) and I have no problems with her but I do appreciate she is strong and you need to be confident.

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

Jumping Lunging

Details of any problems when being ridden

When she was much younger and in training her thing would be to spin sharply if there was a pheasant or something she didn't like. But this is once in a blue moon now (i haven't fallen off for years and years) - "touch wood" Her problem is her strength but she is not nasty or silly with rearing or bucks. She is very brave and if you tell her to go forward and mean what you say she will walk over hot coals for you.

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?

No

Thoroughbred

The Thoroughbred is a horse breed best known for its use in horse racing. Although the word "thoroughbred" is sometimes used to refer to any breed of purebred horse, it technically refers only to the Thoroughbred breed. Thoroughbreds are considered a hotblooded horse, known for their agility, speed and spirit.

The head should be correctly proportioned to the rest of the body, displaying a good flat forehead and wide-set intelligent eyes. Carried relatively low, the head should sit well on a neck which is somewhat longer and lighter than in other breeds.

Good quality Thoroughbreds have high withers, a deep chest, a short back, good depth of hindquarters, a lean body, and long legs.

Color: Thoroughbred horses are most often bay, seal brown, chestnut, black, or gray. The can also be roan, palomino or white. Coat patterns that have more than one color on the body, such as Pinto or Appaloosa, are not recognized by the breed registries.

Size: Thoroughbreds usually stand between 15 and 17 hands high.

Weight: Thoroughbred can weigh in range of 1000 to 1200lbs (450-550kg).

Temperament: Being a hot-blooded horse, the Thoroughbred is courageous and alert. Sometimes nervous, these horses are spirited and excitable. As true racing machines, the Thoroughbred is fast and athletic.

Life expectancy: Average life span of a Thoroughbred horse is somewhere between 25 to 35 years, depending on the health care provided.

Origin: The Thoroughbred's genetic origin is Arabian. The founding Arabian stallions which were brought to Britain in the late 1600s and early 1700s were bred to domestic mares.

Thoroughbred uses:

Although the Thoroughbred is primarily bred for racing, the breed is also used for show jumping and combined training because of its athleticism, and many retired and retrained race horses become fine family riding horses, dressage horses, and youth show horses. The larger horses are sought after for hunter/jumper and dressage competitions, whereas the smaller horses are in demand as polo ponies.

Thoroughbred influence: Arabian, Barb and Turk.
