Relevant health or lameness issues

He has a few small sarcoids that have been successfully controlled with a mix of fly cream and Thuja. He has a number of scars - some on his back from old saddle sores from Spain and cuts on his legs from kicks and being a bit clumsy I think he has fractured his right cheekbone at some time in the past as this is a little more concave.

He is fine with cars, vans, motorbikes and cycles etc. Larger trucks sometimes startle him if moving fast, but his reaction is usually to stop and stand or at most shy away a pace or two

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

He is pretty much the same alone or in company. He is settled going out, being inquisitive to all that is around him, but is nappy on the way back in, speeding his walk up and often leaving company behind him, so needs regular half halts.

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.
