Petya is a lovely fellow. I bought him to be a companion and project from his breeders as a little wild thing in July 2016. He had had very little handling, but his lively intelligence and curiosity made him easy to work with. I backed him later that year - bareback and bitless - and hacked him out over the winter, using a bitless cavesson. In the early new year, I took him to a local endurance ride and he was perfectly behaved. He is very easy to do, lives out 24/7, is a great friend and companion.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Petya is a great friend and thrives with love and attention. He would benefit from an experienced owner looking for a horse for regular light hacking, or with the time to introduce him to schooling and exercises to supple and strengthen him. I have backed and hacked him - but done no schooling. He is a sociable fellow and needs a companion or two - though he has to date had no sign of separation anxiety. He adores being groomed and is good to do in every way.

Relevant health or lameness issues

Petya has never been lame and has strong feet. He does not need a special diet, thriving on good grass, hay and a little feed. He holds his weight well. He is still unbalanced, especially in his canter which is weak. Petya was seen by a vet because I was concerned about his lack of strength in canter and toe dragging in trot. X-rays showsed no kissing spine and he was not lame and vet recommended a chiropractor who saw P a few times, recommended a wider saddle and to work on balancing and supplying.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

Petya saw a chiropractor at the end of 2016 because I thought he may have back problems as his canter is weak. The chiropractor recommended suppling and strengthening exercises, which I have not followed due to lack of time and facilities and because I much prefer hacking. He saw a vet at the same time and no lameness was found and x-rays of his spine showed him to be clear of kissing spine or any other obvious spine problems. Like the chiropractor, the vet recommended balancing and supplying exercises.

Pure Arabian Sire X Thoroughbred and she has 1/8 Irish Sports Horse. V similar to Anglo Arab: "...Refinement, bone and endurance of the Arabian, and the speed and scope of the Thoroughbred though they should not look entirely like either a Thoroughbred or an Arabian. They have a long neck, prominent withers, a short and strong body (more sturdy than the Thoroughbred), and a deep chest. They have fine heads, although not overly dished in profile, and have strong bone." Her breeding means she should her very suited to dressage and possibly endurance riding. Lovely, bold floating strides.
