Vanna is a beautiful, attention seeking horse. She has a very big character and likes to think that she is in charge but is never nasty with it. When I ride her out I always feel that she has that 'look at me' quality about her. She feels and acts like one of the family

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    i would require someone to be able to give her a forever,permanent loving home with someone who wants to spend time with her. She needs an experienced, patient rider who would be able to understand her quirks and particular needs. She will only go to a perfect home. One of the main reasons that I have to rehome her is that we have horrendous horse flies here and she is very sensitive to the bites. I have problems every summer but can't afford to move her as i live and work here and she stays for free

  • Details of the tack used to ride the horse

    She has a working hunter saddle and a evoequine comfort bridle with a curved mouthpiece snaffle. I use a continental snaffle with a curved mouthpiece for hacking or schooling in the field if she's feeling a bit wilful. I have just started using a Bombers pelham with double reins and she's going nicely in that. I would expect that a suitable candidate would want to buy her tack and rugs off me

Relevant health or lameness issues

She has soundness issues from an unresolved problem as a 4 yr old. A full bone scan at Newmarket revealed nothing and unfortunately I ran out of money and reached my insurance limit to have further tests. At first it was decided she could only be a very light hack with minimal canter but with help from a very sympathetic instructor we have built her up to be able to do light schooling as well and has been placed at every dressage event we have entered. She needs to be properly shod.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

She had an allergic reaction to something in her field 2 months ago and was coming in with weeping sores. We moved fields and i stopped leaving her out for too long. She was treated with flamazine cream and although she no longer gets the sores she continued to rub her face in the stable. This was treated with a steroid spray. Last year she got cellulitis from fly bites that got infected ,that was treated with antibiotics.

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

luckily for us we have minimal traffic on our country roads but that means she hasn't experienced a lot. Shes good with bikes going past if she knows they are there and if I meet a tractor I normally get off and lead her past if there is no driveway or field to escape to

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

I prefer to hack her alone as she switches off a bit in company. If i do hack in company I try to keep her at the front but only because I don't enjoy the ride as much if I'm behind. This is only on our hacks from home, if we have boxed out somewhere to ride then she's good wherever. I think she just gets bored at home

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

She can nap but this mainly consists of her stopping and standing still. I have learnt to deal with this and although she sometimes still considers it I don't have any problems anymore. She does demand attention when anyone is on the yard and will weave if she thinks food is about. I would like someone who enjoys her large character rather than be annoyed with it. She wouldn't stay in a field on her own and also has to be front when coming in from the field with her companion

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

She wouldn't stand up to lots of canter work .I wouldn't show her because of the amount of cantering there is ,although she loves showing off in an inhand class! I do polework to help her fitness and i do pop over logs out hacking and the occasional small jump at home but I wouldn't jump her properly. Until her face problem I was hacking or schooling everyday and she felt and looked extremely fit and well.

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

She is a very good doer

Details of any problems when being ridden

She naps as described above. She can get strong, on the way home especially. You have to be diplomatic when schooling and work out if she is struggling with something physically or just decided she doesn't fancy doing it that day

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?

Yes

Knabstrupper Horse

The Knabstrup or Knabstrupper is a European horse breed with an unusual range of coat coloration. It shows the same color pattern as the Appaloosa, with coat patterns ranging from solid, through many variants to the full leopard spotted. Leopard Spotting is the most prized color pattern. It has warmblood comformation.

Knabstrup color:

  • The Knabstrupper horse exhibits various color patterns. The most popular color pattern is the leopard with its solid white background covered with black, bay, or chestnut spots. Other patterns include the blanket, the snowflake, the snowcap, and the “few spot,” an almost solid white horse that, when bred, always produces a foal with a spotted pattern of some kind. However, some Knabstruppers are born with solid colors, such as bay, chestnut, or gray.

Knabstrup size:

  • The average height of Knabstrup is 15.1 to 16 hands high, but there are also pony sized ones with height under 14.2 hands high.

Knabstrup temperament:

  • Knabstruppers are valued for their kind temperaments, high level of trainability, strength, stamina and good health as well as for their wonderful color.

Knabstrup life expectancy:

  • Knabstrup usually live from 20 to 35 years.

Knabstrup origin:

Believed to have originated from the prehistoric spotted horses of Spain, the Knabstrupper is one of the oldest breed registries in Europe. Established in 1812, the Knabstrupper started with a single chestnut blanketed mare purchased by a Danish butcher named Flaeb from a Spanish cavalry officer. The mare, who became known as Flaebehoppen (which literally means "Flaeb’s mare"), was purchased by Major Villars Lunn who owned an estate called “Knabstrupgaard” in Holbaek, Nordsealand, Denmark. Flaeb’s mare was bred to a Fredricksborg stallion and produced a wildly colored stallion son who was named Flaebehingsten. Between the two of them, Flaebehoppen and Flaebehingsten were bred to a large variety of good quality horses, producing loudly colored offspring and grand offspring and establishing the Knabstrupper horses as some of the most sought after in Europe at that time.
