Description – Solero is a 14hh, 11 years old, Trotter X, bay mare.
History – Solero arrived at Bransby horses at the request of the Lincolnshire Police after being found abandoned with one other equine.
Behaviour & Handling – Solero is a really sweet mare who would thrive in a one to one home with a competent older teenager or a small adult who enjoys jumping, hacking and pleasure rides. Solero really enjoys her jumping and has jumped small show jumping courses in the school and has also been cross country training. Solero enjoys hacking out and is quite happy to go on her own or in company. Solero still finds flat work quite difficult and would need a competent rider to help continue her education. Her love is for jumping and she is very quick over her fences. She does need riding positively to keep her confidence with whatever she is doing.
Perfect Match – Solero does have quite a quirky personality and can be sensitive to loud noises so needs a confident and competent person who will enjoy her for what she is. She would love a fun home with plenty of variety to her work but mainly focused around jumping and hacking.
Stabling/Shelter – Can live out all year with a shelter. Happy being stabled too.
Companionship – Happy living with mares and geldings.
Forage/Feed – No hard feed needed. Hay in winter if on poor grazing.
Rug – Depends on clip.
Ailments – None.
Medication – None.
Vices – None.
Feet – Currently barefoot. Good with the farrier.
Dentist – Needs sedation.
Vet – Good.
Clip – Good with small clippers but needs time and patience with large clippers.
