Star is the kindest horse I have ever had, she is very much a one person horse and she loves her work, she will carry herself really well and would excel in a dressage test. She is very brave, she'll jump anything and when we have been to the beach she was the first to go into the water, leading the younger horses straight in. She is an ex-racehorse and was trained in Newmarket so she is perfect to hack out alone or in company, she is not fazed by traffic at all.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    She would need bringing back in to regular work but she has done it all before so it wouldn't take long to get her going again. She is not a novice ride, if she thinks you don't know what you are doing she will drop her shoulder to see if you'll fall over the shoulder but she's never nasty with it, just a typical thoroughbred who gets a little excited.

  • Details of the tack used to ride the horse

    She currently has a brand new GP saddle which was fitted to get in 2017. She is ridden in a micklem bridle and a neue schule starter bit.

Relevant health or lameness issues

She does windsuck after eating hard food but this has never caused any damage to fencing/stables

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

Star stood on a piece of metal in November 2017 which went in to the frog of her hind foot. This was removed by the vet and she made a full recovery within a few weeks. She has not had any issues with this foot since then. (Xrays and vets reports can be produced if required)

Details of the veterinary practice this horse is registered with

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Star is fine in traffic. Not fazed by any type of vehicle. She has been kept on working farms so used to tractors and large lorries.

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

I have always hacked Star out on her own due to work commitments and she has been fine. She will more than happily go out with company and will go first or last.

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

She is not a novice ride, if she thinks you don't know what you are doing she will drop her shoulder to see if you'll fall over the shoulder but she's never nasty with it, just a typical thoroughbred who gets a little excited. When she is in regular work (even just ridden once a week) she is as good as gold. She just needs someone experienced to bring her back into work.

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

No, not due to previous injury but I do not want her hunted or to be used as a broodmare.

Details of any problems when being ridden

She may be excited to start with as she gets back into work (she'll probably be excited for the first 10 minutes then she'll give up). She will 'bunny hop' but she has never reared or fully bucked when I have been on her.

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?

No
