  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    She can have nervous moments due to past mistreatment, but she responds well to human contact and reassurance. We would prefer a rider who has experience as Phoebe needs someone who is prepared to be patient and understanding as well as firm when needed. The sharer must be local to her current location as she is settled and it would be too stressful for her to move.

  • Details of the tack used to ride the horse

    GP saddle, hanging cheek snaffle, running martingale, flash bridle, brushing boots (front two for schooling, all four for jumping), overreach boots.

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Very good.

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

Hacking out she is reliable and well behaved however, when cantering with other horses, she has a tendency to race them. This is easily managed.

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

Due to previous mistreatment, she can become nervous for no particular reason. She responds well to positive feedback and human kindness. She has episodes of silliness when the new grass comes in, but only when turning her out and bringing her in. However, the majority of the time she is a very sweet and loving horse. She therefore needs an experienced, caring and quiet person who understands her breed.

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

As a thoroughbred she is unsuitable for hunting/fun rides as she is a fine build which increases the chance of serious injury.

Details of any problems when being ridden

On very rare occasions she has the odd funny epsiode (e.g napping, bucking and just generally being silly) however, it is easily dealt with and is nothing that a more exerienced rider couldn't deal with. She only generally misbehaves when the new grass comes in or if she has been kept in for some reason.

Horse vaccinated annually for flu and tetanus

Yes

Need to be stabled at night?

Yes, all year round

Need to be put on restricted grazing to limit weight gain?

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.
