T is a funny character, he has his own way in showing how special he is. However T is down to earth, he's that laid back he is virtually horizontal. He is well schooled, and does give confidence but he also has that get up and go when asked.

Relevant health or lameness issues

T is a known colicer, however since living out for the last 4 years or so we haven't had a colic attack. He has also had an injury to his back right, which got stuck in a 5 bar gate. With that in mind, he is restricted from being over jumped. As this tends to flair up, that leg, he becomes sore and stiff for a few days.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

T hs had no treatment or examinations over the last 4 years

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Perfect, nothing bothers him.

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

Perfect, again not fussed if in company or out on his on. As long as he is in a small'ish group, larger groups he tends to get excited.

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

T behaves with manors, but if he thinks he can get away with his odd silly moment then he will unless told othewise. In large hacking groups he can, get excited and joggy. I have found the more he goes out in larger groups the quieter he will become, T can and will go into race mode but is easy managed.

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

N/A

Details of any problems when being ridden

T has only bucked once in the 4 years i have owned him, that was down to new saddle fitting. He has never reared or napped. If he is unsure of something, he will stand, look at it and then move on with encouragement.

Horse vaccinated annually for flu and tetanus

Yes

Need to be stabled at night?

However i would like someone to enjoy him, spoil him as such. 6 days a week of hacking, with the odd pleasure ride. Sharer must be happy, to travel between fielding when rotation is needed. Riders insurance is a must, and must have good knowledge and experience of tb's/ex racers.

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.
