Relevant health or lameness issues

Rose has suspected arthritis in her hocks, she shows stiffness and overreaches. She can panic in canter when ridden, therefore she is being rehomed as non-ridden. This doesn't bother her, she is not chronically lame. She has no exemptions on her insurance as far as we are aware, certainly not had any treatment whilst with us. Just an examination when she had her vacs and we discussed her stiffness.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

On vaccinating Rose, vet diagnosed suspected arthritis in her hocks, although no x-rays were carried out.

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

We have only had her since August and she travelled to us fine, came out of a trailer chilled out. She can be a little strong going to the field if she has been in for a few days due to weather but nothing significant and soon does as she is told when reprimanded. If out daily, she is slow and steady. Lovely in-hand, can use a horse walker (currently doing this to keep her occupied) and can loose school on command and change the rein when asked. Very intelligent little mare. She is very sweet.,

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

Non-ridden.

Explanation whether this horse is simply a good doer or whether he is prone to laminitis

Seems to be able to eat for England and not put on very much weight but she is a cob and could be prone to Laminitis, depending on the amount of grazing available. We did put a mask on her last (late) summer/Autumn flush due to long lush grass in our paddock.

Horse vaccinated annually for flu and tetanus

Yes

Need to be stabled at night?
