Ted is willing and enthusiastic and enjoys "doing things". He is also happy to "mooch" with his friend in the field and stable the rest of the time. He travels and boxes well. Hacks on the road and on the Downs. In the past he has done a few Endurance training rides. We hack in company. Can be ridden in Western or English tack. He was quick to bond with me, and I feel sure he would do the same with a new owner. He is very easy to love!

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Ted is suited to a competent rider. Either a small adult or teenager who will have time to enjoy what he has to offer. If someone is able to bring him into full work, I think he should possibly enjoy Endurance, which had been my aim. He likes to have a companion in the field and would need to be stabled at night. Ted is used to being around dogs at the yard.

  • Details of the tack used to ride the horse

    Western saddle, pad and bridle. Snaffle bit. He has been ridden in English tack in the past.

Relevant health or lameness issues

Exemptions: Sweet itch. (Generally in late summer. It can be eased with garlic supplements, fly sheet & Filtabac cream. Will rub his mane & tail but they grow back in over winter.) Soft tissue trauma/periostitis right fore cannon including splints ( This occurred with his previous owner. I have a letter from her vet, stating him fit for Endurance riding). Kick to head/fractured frontal bone occurred Feb 2015 (I have a vet report stating that the prognosis for recovery is good. He has been fine since)

Sussex Equine Hospital | 01903883050 | Ashington West Sussex | info@sussexequinehospital.co.uk | sussexequinehospital.co.uk

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Fine. He is a typical Arab - Large vehicles are fine! Paper bags can get an uneasy looking at or a sideways ping!

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

He is fine hacking in company. He mostly rides behind, as my hacking buddy has a stallion. I do not hack alone. He has been alone in the past with a competent rider.

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

He is what I regard as a "typical" Arab. New situations or things that he has not done for a while can be either rather exciting, or a bit of worry for him initially. But he will settle after awhile.

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

None that I am aware of.

Details of any problems when being ridden

The worst he does is small bucks. Generally these are down to me eg. not getting my position right when asking for canter.

Horse vaccinated annually for flu and tetanus

Yes

Need to be stabled at night?

Yes, all year round

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

No

Anglo Arab

The Anglo-Arabian horse is a Thoroughbred (prefix Anglo) crossed with an Arabian horse. The cross can be made between a Thoroughbred stallion and Arabian mare, or vice-versa. It can also be a cross between a Thoroughbred and an Anglo-Arab, an Arabian and an Anglo-Arab, or between two Anglo-Arabians. No matter what the cross, the Anglo-Arabian must have at least 12.5% percent Arabian blood to be considered an Anglo-Arabian.

France is one of the greatest producers of Anglo-Arabians. The French Anglo-Arabian has traced back to two stallions: Massoud (an Arabian), and Aslam (a Turkish horse). Imported from Syria, they were crossed with three imported English Thoroughbreds: Comus Mare, Daer, and Selim Mare. Their three daughters, Clovis, Danae, and Delphine became the foundation stock of France's breeding program. The Pompadour National Anglo Arab Stud, part of the French National Stud, is at Château de Pompadour in Arnac-Pompadour, Corrèze. It also has influenced France's main sport horse breed: the Selle Francais.

The Anglo-Arabian has been used by the military, as well as a general riding and sport horse. The breed is also excellent at eventing, with the stamina, jumping ability, and speed. In the United States, the Anglo-Arabian is considered a partbred Arabian horse and is registered in a separate section within the Arabian Horse Association.

Breed Characteristics:
  • As a result of the different crosses that can be made to produce an Anglo-Arabian, their size and appearance is variable, though on average a bit taller than the average Arabian and of somewhat less refined type. The largest horses are usually produced by breeding a Thoroughbred mare to an Arabian stallion. The best examples of this breed inherit the refinement, bone and endurance of the Arabian, and the speed and scope of the Thoroughbred.
  • The horses are usually 15.2-16.3 hands high (62 to 69 inches at the withers), and mainly chestnut, bay (sometimes called "brown") or gray. The best of the breed have more of an Arabian-type conformation, 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.
