Will hack alone, does not fizz up, excellent in traffic, not spooky or sharp, ride on the buckle. You can lead off him and mount and remount. Can be ridden after a month of no work and just the same if you had ridden the day before. Does not require wrapping up in 300g+ rugs and lives off simple minimum feed and no feed in the summer with good grazing. He gets on with any horse and can become quite fond of them but not silly to separate and loves to play in the field with the horses others don't.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Ideal environment would be not a lot going on with ample grazing as he will gate hang if there is no grass or hay and want to come in. He can pull faces when you groom, adjust his rug and tighten the girth and work his way out of being tied but a hay net soon sorts that out – I think really his objective is food! Therefore he does need a confident handler although he does not need a confident rider. . He is to suited for a non confident rider as he will not go anywhere you don't wish

Relevant health or lameness issues

Stifle surgery in spring an my objective was to bring him back into work as a hack. He is currently worked 4 to 5 days a week. I seek a light hacking home from him so he has more than just field life.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

Bilateral stifle surgery for investigation and repair to tidy damage cartilage. The surgeon said it was highly unlikely he would return to the full on working life he had before so now I am through rehab I am want a quiet life for him.

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Brilliant in traffic the heaviest of traffic. Have crossed train lines, ridden down very busy roads in town.

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

Very good, will go first or last. Can hold back from other horse. Not spooky and a very safe ride.

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

Querks are his manners on the ground. he can be grumpy and pull faces when you groom, adjust rugs etc and other days he is fine. The faces appear when you put a brush to his body, main and tail and picking hooves out is fine. He does like to untie himself but doesn't go anywhere. He is very playful in his character, likes to hold buckets in his mouth, drink out of hose etc although he does not rip and chew rugs.

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

No hunting, show jumping and intensive schooling.

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

He is very good dooer and you would have to watch his weight on the spring grass although he has never had laminitis.

Details of any problems when being ridden

None at all.

Horse vaccinated annually for flu and tetanus

Yes

Need to be stabled at night?

Yes, but only in winter

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