Tikka is a happy and funny little horse who loves attention. She is inquisitive and friendly. She loves hacking and will happily walk along on the end of the rein but similarly have a good trot or canter too. She loads well and is great to clip. she does not need to be ridden every day but loves attention so i would like her to go to someone who has time for this. She is great in traffic and with all farm machinery and animals as she grew up on a farm. I know the breeder and am in regular contact.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Tikka is very safe but she is a forward going horse and not a total plod so the home couldn't be a total beginner. It needs to be someone who wants to hack and maybe do sponsored rides etc as tikka must not be ridden in a school or deep surface. She does not need riding every day and so could suit someone who wanted to just ride at weekends or more regularly , whichever suited the rider. I would be willing to offer a long term loan to the right home.

Relevant health or lameness issues

Tikka has hock arthritis in both hocks. She has been treated and is sound. She had a ligament problem at the same time but has had 6 months off and shock wave therapy and has made a brilliant recovery with the recent scans looking great. The vet is confident she will have a long ridden life if she is hacked only and that is why i am rehoming her as i want to compete. Tikka had a tooth root abcess and the tooth was extracted over a year ago and has healed fully causing no problems.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

Tikka was initially seen last August as she was unhappy striking off on left canter. She was diagnosed with hock arthritis and treated with steroid injections and a three month hacking programme. At the end of that we still weren't happy and the vet found a detachment of the ligament at the origin under the hock so tikka had 6 months off and shock wave therapy. This has been successful and the ligament now looks very good and she is back in work. The vet is confident she will withstand a long hacking life.
