Unique definitely lives up to his name! He is a huge personality with a very loving nature and loves nothing better than being fussed over. He has so much left to give and I know would love to be taken out on light hacks if he found the right, knowledgeable person to bring him back into work. He truly deserves to live out his days in caring environment where he can get the love and attention he needs. If he proves unable to withstand ridden work he would make a great companion to either mares or geldings.

Is the horse in work?
No but could be brought back into work (Retired from dressage 4 years ago due to two injured suspensory ligaments. Rehabilitation costs proved too expensive to try and bring him back into full time work. Has been sound in field since so potentially could cope with light hacking.)

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    A knowledgeable and loving home is required. Although he is laid back and easy to handle in every way, he is a big boy and not always aware of his size! He is well schooled and polite to ride. As an ex competition horse he has spent most of his life training and competing so has led quite a pampered and sheltered life. He has been hacked a little bit and generally never been spooky. For the last three years he has shared a field with both mares and other gelding with no issues.

  • Details of the tack used to ride the horse

    He was ridden in a double bridle and snaffle bridle when being trained. Would recommend he was hacked out in a snaffle with draw reins while he is getting used to being worked again. I have always ridden him in a dressage saddle but would be equally happy to be ridden in a gp. Would benefit from brushing/ protective boots to help support his legs.

Relevant health or lameness issues

Always been in good health until he injured two suspensory ligament in his front legs. He has since had a couple of minor injuries in the field but they have healed well. He has quite week hooves which need to be monitored and can suffer from fly bites in the summer.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

Injured his fetlock in the field during the summer, treated with a cast and antibiotics and is now healed.

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Not hacked out a lot in traffic but was stabled at a busy yard where lorries and cars where coming and going and never had any issues.

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

Generally on the lazy side but can be spooked by sudden movements. Happy to hack out in company at a walk but can get a little strong if cantering.

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

Somebody knowledgable and who has time and experience if they choose to try and get him back into ridden work.

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

Any activity other than light hacking would be detrimental due to past injuries to his suspensory ligaments.

Details of any problems when being ridden

A gentleman to ride. Has had the occasional buck when feeling very fit but generally out of character.

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

Danish Warmblood

The Danish Warmblood is one of the several warmboods so successful in international sport horse competition. Although the Danish horse is relatively new, it has risen  to the ranks of world leader.

The success is based on several factors; most of the original breeding took place on Danish farms, in a farming community known for more than a hundred years for its high international standard. Stallions were selected under extremely critical standards and the  Danish breeders showed a willingness to invest in already proven bloodlines from neighboring countries and skillfully combined those lines to achieve their goal.  Now Danish Warmblood horses are exported all over the world.
