He is a pink papered Hanoverian with exceptional breeding. It is an absolute shame that he has gotten injured like this, as he would be a top dressage horse otherwise. He is lovely natured and very sweet. He is good to handle, shoe, load and have his teeth done. He is also good to be lunged. He can be very lightly ridden, but he currently cannot do dressage because of his injury. He could be rested and may be able to do more work if given some time with low level hacking and light work

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    He would be suitable for someone who needs a companion horse, with the view to be able to work him once his injury is healed. Someone who has had dressage horses would be good, but who is now looking for a happy hacker. He will not be suitable for a child or very inexperienced person.

Relevant health or lameness issues

As mentioned above, he has a ligament injury to his stifle. He can do light hacking, but cannot do dressage anymore, which is what I bought him for. The injury could be operated on, and if it goes well, he could be suitable for more intense work once healed, however I cannot afford the operation (would be £4k). At the moment he can do walk and trot as the injury only affects him in canter.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

The above detail is the outcome of veterinary treatment given over the past year. He has had scans and blocking to determine where the lameness is as it is not obvious, and he trots up sound. He has clear x-rays and would probably pass a vet exam

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

as he is a young, green horse, he would need someone quite experienced

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

lots of canter in a school or collected work that puts pressure on his stifle

Details of any problems when being ridden

no problems, except he does not like going into canter, so the trot to canter transition is difficult, and he just breaks back into trot again

Need to be stabled at night?

Yes, but only in winter

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

No

Hanoverian

A Hanoverian is a warmblood horse originating in Germany, which is often seen in the Olympic Games and other competitive English riding styles, and have won gold medals in all three equestrian Olympic competitions. It is one of the oldest, most numerous, and most successful of the warmbloods. Originally a carriage horse, infusions of Thoroughbred blood lightened it to make it more agile and useful for competition. The Hanoverian is known for a good temperament, athleticism, beauty, and grace.

Irrespective of their unusual colour, their antiquity, and the fact that until Hanover ceased to exist as an independent state, the whites and the creams were respectively the horses of the king and queen, there is nothing extremely remarkable about them. They were all tall, powerful animals, rather inclined to coarseness, and not particularly good about the shoulders, but no doubt serviceable if put to work, which, however, they very rarely were. Their tails, which were squared, extended down to their heels, and their manes were correspondingly long.

The horses are elegant, strong, and robust. They are bred to be willing and trainable, and have a strong back, powerful body, athletic movement, and strong limbs.

Hanoverian color:

  • Chestnut, bay, brown, black, and gray are found the most often.

Hanoverian size:

  • The horses can be 15.3-17.2 hh, but most are in the range of 16-16.2 hh.

Hanoverian weight:

  • Their weight can be between 750 and 1100 lb (340-500 kg).

Hanoverian temperament:

  • The Hanoverian Horse is willing, bold, sensible and intelligent.

Hanoverian life expectancy:

  • Hanoverian is an extremely long-lived breed of horse.

Hanoverian origin:

  • Germany.

Hanoverian uses:

  • They were used as a carriage horse, farm horse and also for military use as a calvary horse and artillery horse. Later it became increasingly used as a riding horse. Now the Hanoverian horse is an ideal general riding horse and competition horse.

Hanoverian influence:

  • The bigger of the local mares were refined with Holsteins, Thoroughbreds and Cleveland Bays, and later some Neapolitan, Andalusian, Prussian, and Mecklenburg stock.

Hanoverian interesting facts:

The success of Hanoverian horses in competition proves the soundness of the breed - 13 medals in the 1992 Olympics and four consecutive World Breeding Championships as well as five gold, one silver and two bronze medals in dressage and show jumping at the 1996 Olympics.
