Milly is the most intelegent and beautiful horse I have had the pleasure of owning. We have challenged each other but have both come out better individuals for it. With added confidence she will become someone else’s dream horse and with a regular one to one relationship she will go far! She is sweet and sensitive and when comfortable will follow you everywhere offering kisses. Can’t ask for more than that!

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Milly would benefit from an experienced one to one home and preferably a relationship that uses positive reinforcement as she responds very well to this kind of training. She is green and lacking confidence at the moment but with regular schooling, hacking and groundwork she will be a complete gem of a horse. I have done the hard work and got her to a point where she is a blank canvas ready to transition into a well rounded riding horse.

  • Details of the tack used to ride the horse

    Milly has a full easy trek bitless cross under bridle and a T6 Thorowgood high wither saddle 17in. No other tack used. She can be bitted but prefers bitless.

Relevant health or lameness issues

Milly has had Canker in her left hind foot. She is a rescue and had not had a very nice start to life before I took her on so she is scarred on various parts of her body, these blemishes do not effect her mobility or health in any way and are not completely noticeable either. She has regular appointments with a chiro, barefoot trimmer and dentist although the dentist is work in progress as she is very fearful of the metal rasps and has to be sedated at the moment.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

Milly has been canker free for about a year now, it was successfully treated and it has not returned. She is barefoot and her feet are in better condition now than they were before. She isn’t always keen on the vet but is good for jabs.

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

When in regular work Milly is good in traffic both in company and alone, although acting a little green at present as she hasn’t been out much. I have had her out in heavy traffic with no issues (busses, bikes and tractors) but can fuss a bit with things such as bin bags, flapping plastic and temporary road works. She will have a good look, make a point of it being there and move on. She doesn’t flip out but does faff over “scary objects”.

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

Milly is good in a group, going first, middle or last, but can get a bit stroppy if held back from a group. She is fine out alone but may need more assurance when approaching spooky objects.

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

Milly needs more confidence, once she has that and trust in her rider she will make a fantastic riding horse so a patient, quiet and experienced horse person will get the best out of her. She cannot be forced to do anything as that makes her difficult hence why she enjoys positive reinforcement methods. She needs one to one more or less every day which I cannot do anymore sadly. She loads fine with a little coaxing (prefers a trailer but does go on a lorry).

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

No, Milly has the potential to do well in most disaplins but I have not had the chance to train her in anything specific yet. She is a blank canvas right now. I have taken her out for a bit of in hand showing which she took in her stride and I have only ever done hacking, light schooling and groundwork with her. She loves groundwork.

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

Never had Laminitis in my care. She was emaciated when I took her on so weight gain and keeping it on has been a challenge in the past but we are now at a point where she is a very good weight and keeping that way on a basic fiber based feed once a day.

Details of any problems when being ridden

Can do small rears when protesting about something but nothing stupid. I.e. she doesn’t like golf buggies much so will root to the spot and refuse to go forward if she sees them. She may rear a little in protest but this is her confidence issue talking and she is fine if I get off and lead past the offending buggy or if someone walks in front of her. She will allow me to remount fine and we get on with the ride as normal.
