  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Asa will need a home where he can be turned out as much as possible, he doesn’t like being cooped up in the stable for long periods of time.

Asa does not enjoy schooling and is looking for a home as a companion/happy hacker in company.

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Asa is fine with small traffic but he is nervous of large vehicles and would suit a home with minimal road riding

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

Asa hacks well in company, he will go in front behind or side by side enjoying the countryside. Asa isnt confident hacking alone and will nap, he requires more confidence and experience in solo hacking.

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

Asa isn’t a fast horse, if he doesn’t like something under saddle he will stop and root. He requires a firm and fair rider, on the ground Asa is easy to handle day to day.

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

No

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

Asa has never had lami but he is a good dooer so his weight needs to be managed

Details of any problems when being ridden

Asa vice is to nap when he doesn’t like something, this may just be a stop root and reverse or if really unhappy he May mini rear. This behaviour is more learned habit when he is concerned, when in regular exercise with a firm rider it’s less of a issue
