Zanna is a beautiful bay mare with such a willing and eager to please nature. She can be a bit mare-ish when dealing with her on the floor but that adds to her character. Despite her sometimes cranky ways, to ride she is dream.
I have owned Zanna from 3 yrs old. She has thought me so much. She has always looked after me and tries hard at everything that’s asked of her. I am so sad that I now need to look to re-home Zanna and will only do so to someone as special as she is. A truly amazing horse.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Zanna would benefit from someone competent who will not be fazed by her sometimes mare-ish behaviour. Zanna is excelled in the school and rarly puts a foot wrong. She would benefit from someone who could work on her going correctly. Despite her loving jumping, her jumping days are sadly over. She loves hacking. She does hack alone but it’s more enjoyable in company. Zanna gets on with any horse she comes across so would fit in to any yard. Zanna is not a novice ride but in the right hands she is very safe.

Relevant health or lameness issues

Zanna does unfortunately have some lameness issues. She has arthritis in one of her coffin joints which she has been medicated for in the past. She is now on one bute a day which means she is totally sound. She is best off doing light work to prevent unnecessary strain on the joint. She wears wedge heartbars Shoes and must have shoes on all year round as she gets footsore very easily. She is no longer insured for lameness on her left fore.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

Zanna had some unexplained nosebleeds at the start of the year. She was scoped and nothing sinister was found. Zanna has not had any further nosebleeds since.

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Zanna is excellent in traffic, she has only been hacked on quite roads generally but has never been bothered by tractors, lorry’s, buses or motorbikes.

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

Zanna is excellent to hack in company. She can on the very odd occasion choose not to go past something but will follow another horse and with a confident rider she will go forward. Zanna will hack alone and 9 times out of 10 will be an angel. She can however sometimes be spooky and spin if she takes a disliking to something however again with a confident rider she will go past.

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

Zanna likes to be in charge when it comes to people. She needs her owner to be firm, confident but kind. If Zanna thinks she can get away with something she will try to. She has a lovely quirky nature which makes her an amazing horse. Zanna can sometimes nip but it’s not nasty. Once on board Zanna is willing to please, gentle and lovely to ride. My three year old rides her and she has never puts a foot wrong.
