Relevant health or lameness issues

In 2015 he had a fall in the field which injured his sacroiliac joint. The problem was thoroughly investigated by the vets at Rossdales, Newmarket and it was deemed that his workload would need to be managed to keep him sound and comfortable. He is currently fit and happy with his work and very much enjoying life. Although his injury does carry some restrictions he can undertake a mix of flatwork training and hacking with hill and pole work. Further claims against this injury would not be possible.

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

He is very sensible in traffic, does not react to bikes, farm machinery, lorries, buses etc.

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

He will happily go out alone or in company and goes first or last.

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

He gets on with both mares and geldings and ideally would be re-homed with a companion as he can occasionally be tricky to catch. With a scoop of food he is much more willing! He can be a bit shy as he may have been mishandled in the past. He has ear plaques which do cause him to be a bit head sensitive, so he has had his bridle specially adapted to help with this. His bridle and selection of rugs will be available for his prospective new owner.

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

Strenuous jumping, sharp turns would most likely aggravate the injury.

Details of any problems when being ridden

No

Horse vaccinated annually for flu and tetanus

Need to be stabled at night?
