  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Am looking for a loving knowledgable home as light hacking and companion. She is suitable for competent novice to ride not a beginner. She is fine out hacking in company, but if in large groups she can get bit strong and likes to be up front. She is fine in smaller groups. shes not happy hacking completely alone but fine with someone walking alongside or riding a bike. She also must have company of other horses in paddock and stable or she will pace, so not to be left alone.

Relevant health or lameness issues

Tilly has slight arthritis in front Pastern but is managed accordingly by no jumping or riding in tight circles. She is not lame. I wouldn't want her hacked out every day but 2 to 3 times a week would be fine. If hacking more than 8 miles I give her bute day before and day after just to keep her comfortable. She must be shod every 6 weeks. She has no other health issues or past injuries. Clean limbed.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

I don't have Tilly insured just pay vet bills as needed. She was diagnosed as having slight arthritis in right Pastern July 2017 as was refusing jumps. She had nerve blocks and X-rays to confirm this. She was given 2 weeks box rest and turned out with no riding for 3 months. She must be shod every 6 weeks.

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Very good. have never had any problems.

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

She is very good hacking in company, no problem. Though if large groups of horses together can be bit strong and likes to be up front. Not happy to hack alone can be jiggy and unsettled and neighs, but is fine with someone walking alongside or riding a bike.

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

Then only behavioural,trait as such is that she must not be left on her own as she will become anxious. I would not consider nervous inexperienced people they need to be knowledgable and loving.

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

She must not jump or ride in tight circles. No endurance riding.

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

She is good doer and never had laminitis though I would want sensible grazing managed accordingly to prevent laminitis.

Details of any problems when being ridden

Can be nappy if hacked alone and unsettled. Turns to head home and jigs. Never reared.

Horse vaccinated annually for flu and tetanus

Yes

Need to be stabled at night?
