Sisko is good in traffic, he has seen all manner of vehicles & not bat an eyelid.

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

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

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.
