I have owned Trooper for 6 years. He is a very special horse with a very special character. My friends had loaned him prior to me purchasing him and he had taught them a lot in the time they had him and gave them lots of confidence. My previous horse had knocked my confidence and he brought it all back for me. When he was 19 I wanted to do some competitions but he had had enough so i brought a younger horse. I would keep him but i can't afford 2.

Relevant health or lameness issues

He has no health or lameness issues. He is a bit stiff on his back legs as you would expect for a horse of his age but apart from that he is good.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

He has been on loan for the past 2 years. The lady informed me that he had had a nose bleed, they vet attended but said that he had probably just knocked it.

Details of the veterinary practice this horse is registered with

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

He is ok in any traffic.

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

He hacks alone or in company. If he is alone he will be more on his toes and requires the rider to be confident in instructing him forward but he has never objected to an instruction.

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

He cannot be left in a field on his own. He gets attached to other horses so does need to be with another. He can be sectioned off on his own in a field as long as he is next to others. It takes him a couple of weeks to settle anywhere also.

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

No but he is only suitable for light hacking.

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

He is a good doer. He doesn't need too much restriction just checking he's not getting too overweight.

Details of any problems when being ridden

The only thing Trooper has been known to do is put in a happy buck sometimes if you canter out in a field and he is behind a horse. I would generally put him in front if i were with company but he only ever does a happy buck it is definitely not to get you off that is not his intention. He is loving character and everyone who has looked after him has always loved him.

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?

Yes
