hoosing the right horse transport can be tricky, especially with a limited budget, and the decision between a trailer and a lorry has never been closer. Trailers tend to come in at a lower price – although you obviously need to buy a towing vehicle if you don’t already have one – and now offer more in terms of storage space and even living accommodation than ever before. Yet a 3.5 tonne lorry offers more convenience and can be driven by a 17 year–old without taking an additional driving test. Many horses travel better in a lorry, and tack space or lockers mean that all equipment can be stashed away from the passengers, which is more pleasant in wet or muddy conditions. However, the latest trailer designs certainly do offeparticular discipline and full height partitions.” The standard body gives 7ft length in the horse aes points

Choosing the right stallion EXPERT BREEDING ADVICE

R

BUYERS’ GUIDE

B

reeding a performance horse is a highly exciting prospect, with the goal of taking the best qualities of your competition mare and matching her with a really good stallion to produce a talented youngster. Here, Jane Carley talks to some of the best known names in the breeding world to help guide you through the process

“It’s a good idea to take a ‘business plan’ approach to breeding, whatever your intention for the foal,” suggests the British Equestrian Federation’s Jan Rogers. “Are you breeding for sale? If so you need to consider where the demand lies and aim to breed the type of youngster that has the best chance of selling. “If you’re breeding a youngster for yourself, consider who is going to ride it, as the progeny of some stallions can have characteristics that make them very much a ‘professional’s horse’. Be realistic about your own ability and your goals.” Jane Nixon, Director of Equine Development at the British Equestrian Federation, comments that breeders should also take an objective

look at their mare. “Breeding is expensive, so aim to breed the best,” she says. “The mare is highly influential from a genetic and developmental point of view, so consider if your mare is really suitable. Does she have the right conformation for the discipline that you are aiming to breed for? Does she have the performance record to justify breeding from her, and is she sound? Many people send mares to stud because they are no longer able to work, but if this is due to lameness you may be better choosing a different mare, even if you have to buy one.” The importance of avoiding conformational defects can’t be overstated, Jane suggests, given that the sport horse is expected to have a long career, and often does not reach peak performance until the age of 10. “Research has shown that horses with poor conformation are sub-clinically lame by the age of eight with a resulting loss of performance, and clinically lame by 10, needing expensive management,” she explains. “Pain affects temperament and limits performance.” Jane adds that it is also worth checking that the mare has a regular oestrus cycle and can actually get in foal. She should also be disease-free, tested via genital swabs, and her genital structures themselves fit to allow breeding and deliver a foal. Using a vet experienced in breeding is essential. Some studbooks will grade mares, and this can be a worthwhile process to verify the mare’s quality – and thus boost the value of the foal – suggests Jane, although mares are not currently vetted at grading.

The perfect match

Finding the right stallion is the next step, and here Jan emphasises that it is also important to be objective when choosing a sire. “There is plenty of information available about stallions, but check facts and performance data, rather than relying on marketing,” she says. “Some information on free-to-use databases can be ‘user entered’ so it is always worth crosschecking with the relevant discipline.” Competition results for stallions and their progeny can be found on the databases of British Eventing and British Showjumping, and horse performance records are searchable at British Dressage. The British Breeding/BEF Futurity evaluation scheme results offer a host of information about potential sport horses, which have been assessed under the scheme, and stallion rankings from Tel: 01733 468000

Individual studbooks also offer information about their licensed stallions, including progeny details, which is all in the public www.HorseDeals.co.uk

The breeder’s view

Top breeder and Horse Deals columnist Shirley Light of the Brendon Stud, who also organises the Stallion Showcase GB (SSGB) – from 2-3 February at Addington Manor EC, Bucks – advises mare owners to look for talent, type and temperament in a stallion. “Ask yourself what you need to improve on the mare, then make sure these are strong and positive points in the stallion,” she says. She also suggests that breeders should try and meet the stallion and its owner in the flesh, either at home, in Shirley Light competition or at SSGB, and of there are any progeny to try and see them or see some pictures. “I think temperament is vital, a superstar is great but not much good if he’s too razor sharp or has no rideability.” The SSGB is a great place to see a variety of stallions on one weekend, Shirley points out. “We aim to make the weekend entertaining and educational. Meet the stallions up close in their stables and see them strut their stuff, meet the owners and other likeminded breeders. There are trade stands offering a mine of information and you can also enjoy the loose jumping competition and other demonstrations of interest to breeders.”

EXPERT BREEDING ADVICE

“Find out why he is not competing. It can be challenging to manage a stallion’s competitive career alongside breeding, which is why a covering to some top sires is only available as frozen semen. Some stallions are dedicated to breeding for their ‘genetic merit’ rather than their own competition success, and many have attained competition success and are now retired.”

domain and can offer valuable guidance. Young stallions may not have any progeny data, but studying bloodlines can provide a lot of information including performance records for the stallion’s siblings. While the stallion’s own performance may be what brings him to the attention of many aspiring breeders, it isn’t guaranteed that he will pass his ability onto his progeny, although there is a good chance if he is from proven bloodlines. “Similarly a stallion without a current competition record should not be ruled out if his pedigree indicates potential and if his close relations have attained competition success. Owners and agents should be able to answer your questions about why stallions do or don’t compete, so do ask them for all the information that you need to make an informed decision,” says Jan.

Natural service or AI?

We list the pros and cons of natural service versus artificial insemination: l Natural service has the highest rate of success, but also carries the highest risk of injury to the mare and stallion. Very few sport horse studs offer live cover. l AI is not accepted by Thoroughbred studbooks, so live cover is the only option. l Chilled semen must be inseminated in the mare within 36 hours of production. l Arranging timings for the courier delivering semen and the vet for insemination can be tricky for the one-mare owner but is routine at studs. l Frozen semen may be the only option if the stallion is overseas or is competing and can be very successful, but Jane Nixon suggests that it is not ideal for maiden mares. “If importing semen from overseas, it is important to ensure that the stallion has been properly tested for disease, that the semen is free of disease and that it is accompanied by the original paperwork, so this is an area where mare owners really must do their homework,” she says.

12 FEBRUARY 2013 Horse Deals

Stallion grading is an approvals process that gives breeders a very clear direction as to a stallion’s breeding fitness. Expert judges assess horses at the walk, trot and canter and over fences (loose or under saddle) and they are vetted and in most cases x-rayed. “Grading data includes comments on conformation which can be useful when looking to improve any shortcomings in the mare,” comments Jan. “Some studbooks provide a stallion’s measure for each conformational feature against the studbook ideal, which gives mare owners the opportunity to choose characteristics which can complement those of their mare.” On the Continent where the horse is considered as an agricultural animal and breeding is in some cases subsidised by the government, stallions undergo performance testing before being licensed, usually as three-year-olds. In the UK, stallion licensing is not mandatory and breeders should be aware of the approval status of any stallion before making their decision.

ask abouT TemperamenT as well as performance Jane Nixon, BEF Performance tests assess trainability and temperament, rideability, behaviour in the stable, ability to convert food effectively, and freedom from lameness in hand and under saddle. Procedures vary according to the studbook, but in general stallions are trained and assessed over a period of up to 100 days by independent riders from the breed society. They are also independently vetted. Data does not, however, pinpoint whether the stallion will be suitable for your specific needs, and where possible it is a good idea to study a stallion’s progeny to see if they would meet your requirements. “Talk to other breeders, and ask about temperament as well as performance to see if this stallion could potentially produce your ideal youngster,” comments Jane. “Gradings are usually open to the public and are a useful source of information,” she adds. “There are also a number of stallion showcases and parades where you can see stallions in action, and even go to the stables www.HorseDeals.co.uk

to meet them, so you can get an idea of their temperament and talk to the people that look after them.” Jan agrees: “Stallion showcases are a great opportunity to see a number of horses in one place and save the expense of visiting several studs. Go with a shortlist in mind and aim to narrow it down.”

Home or stud?

Think about whether you have the facilities to breed at home, suggests Jane. “The mare will need regular scanning which needs at least two people to assist the vet and somewhere suitable for the examination.” At stud, vet visits and covering/insemination are part of the daily routine, with staff experienced in the procedures and could

actually work out cheaper as vet costs are shared between all of the mare owners. “Sending the mare to a well-recognised, high class stud is the best way to get her in foal, and unless you are very experienced the safest way to foal, too,” comments Jane. Safety is vital for a very young foal – paddocks must be secure with ditches, uneven ground and possibly even public footpaths fenced off, and the mare and foal must be able to come in during bad weather, she points out. Foals also need to be checked several times a day, so if you work full time you will need to arrange cover. Veterinary cover must also be arranged as the vet will need to see the foal within 24 hours of its birth, even if the delivery has been straightforward. HD

Breeding with

shirley light Top breeder Shirley Light gives us the latest news and views from Brendon Stud

F

ebruary is the month when we’re all supposed to be thinking along romantic lines. Although not a lot of romance comes into it, I’m often asked how I decide which stallion to use for a particular mare. When I’m pairing up my own horses, I like to think that all my mares and stallions have talent – so that’s one requirement that’s a given. My first consideration is between conformation and rideability, because it’s not much good if you end up with a lame superstar or one that’s a total nightmare to train. Mare owners who choose one of our stallions obviously have high hopes, but you have to remember that a stallion can’t be a total miracle worker – only a partial one! The first thing all breeders should do is take off the rose-tinted goggles and be realistic. For instance, a big, scopey stallion should improve step and scope in the foal of a less scopey mare, but nothing’s guaranteed. Mother Nature has a sense of humour, though our boys always do their best. Another question I’m often asked is at what age it’s reasonable to put a mare in foal. I’ve bred from two-year-olds many times, though I tend not to do it until June time so the mare can have a couple of months of summer grass to grow herself. At the other end of the scale, our record is that we’ve managed to put a 22-year-old maiden mare in foal. We all held our breath at the scan, but there was a lovely blob! The thing to be aware of with an older mare is that it’s going to cost you a bit more because she’ll inevitably need more intensive veterinary and stud assistance.

Shirley relies on the help of Brendon Stud’s vet, Ed Lyall – a regular Horse Deals contributor www.horsedeals.co.uk

R TOP TIP

l “A knowledgeable stallion owner will help you decide on the right sire to put to your mare,” says Shirley. “But if you buy a well-made, wellbred youngster from a good stud, what you see is what you’ve got.”

For more advice, go to www. horsedeals.co.uk or scan the QR code.

It’s always great to be able to get a difficult mare in foal for an owner and, of course, to see a successful birth. Our stud vet, Ed Lyall, from Arundel Equine Hospital, is brilliant. We work hard with him and often find that Oxytocin, a naturally occurring hormone, is our best friend – sometimes, we’re friends with it very late at night! I don’t start putting my own mares in foal until May, as I prefer to wait for the slightly warmer weather to help them cycle properly. Visiting mares can arrive any time from March onwards, though occasionally, we’ll get them at the end of February. I have no problem breeding our stallions to pony mares. In the old days, when live covering was the only option, we had to dig a hole in the indoor school for the little mares to stand in! AI removes that problem, but common sense should prevail when you’re dealing with maiden pony mares. If you want a foal to grow bigger than its dam, using a bigger stallion can certainly help to give a better chance of this happening. But as I’ve said before, breeding gives no warranties on size and Mother Nature’s sense of humour can apply here, too!

As well as growing the next generation, we’ve got plenty on with horses in the Brendon nursery school. It’s always a buzz to see new homebreds start their education and I’ve got a few that I’m excited about for 2013. Gorilla and Wombat, both three-year-old colts by Warrior, are making their debuts under saddle. Maggie, who is four years old and by Caretino Glory, is another who looks like a real jumper; we backed her last summer, but turned her back out, as she was a bit immature. As many of you will know, our fantastic stable jockey, Louise Pavitt, is having a break because she’s expecting a baby. I haven’t tried too hard to find a new rider, as Lou’s sister, Nicole – alias Little Pav – is going to ride some for me. Believe it or not, I’m actually going to have a few months off, too. No, I’m not pregnant, I’m going to have my back operated on! The op was vaguely pencilled in for the end of the year, but with Lou being off, it made sense for me to bring it forward. We’re trying to persuade Lou to do some teaching while she’s off and hope to do some clinics. Her bump is due at the beginning of May, so I guess Royal Windsor will be a no-go. Our master plan is that all being well, Lou will be back in time for the Hickstead Derby meeting. I’ve told her it’ll be really handy if she foals two weeks early! Until next month, Be lucky! HD

Mare owners who choose one of our stallions obviously have high hopes, but you have to reMeMber that a stallion can’t be a total Miracle worker – only a partial one! Shirley Light FEBRUARY 2013 horse deals 23

Horse Deals’ vet Charlie Pinkham guides you through some of the most common veterinary issues found in show jumpers

O

ver the next few months, Horse Deals has asked me to set out some of the more important conditions affecting horses within different disciplines, and particularly some of the conditions that are looked out for during vettings. Most of the conditions I will be looking at can occur in all disciplines, but I will set out the most commonly seen conditions for each disciplines. This month I’m looking at some of the more common conditions affecting show jumpers. Show jumpers have to have a huge range of athletic ability, from the sharp turns and fast jumping when against the clock, to the huge forces going through the hind limbs on take-off, and through the forelimbs on landing, in puissance competitions. An extraordinary level of fitness is required. In show jumpers a very subtle lameness, that will not necessarily show itself when the horse is trotted in-hand, can have an effect on performance. Increased refusals, not jumping squarely, or setting off on the wrong leg in canter can sometimes be the only signs of a problem. An understanding of some of the causes of lameness should make problems easier to spot. The three conditions I’m looking at here are foot pain, suspensory ligament problems and bone spavin:

Foot pain

Given that foot pain is the most common cause of lameness in show jumpers, the maintenance of their feet is obviously critical to letting a horse withstand what can be a very busy schedule. Imbalances in the way a foot is shod and poor quality horn can predispose the horse to a number of conditions.

BUYING ADVICE

Suspensory ligament problems

Poor foot conformation, such as having a long toe and low heel, can lead to bruising and heel pain. Imbalances between the length of horn on the inside and outside of the foot can lead to stresses within the hoof, which can lead to lameness. Both of these can be corrected with regular farriery. However some problems, such as collapsed heel, can take a long time to correct. Poor quality horn, particularly when combined with poor environmental conditions (look outside!), can lead to increased numbers of foot abscess and hoof wall cracks, which can also be a frustrating cause of lost competition days.

Charlie Pinkham BVSc MRCVS has spent a lifetime around horses. From riding woolly ponies to riding out racehorses, it’s not surprising he became an equine vet. Charlie graduated from Liverpool University after which he was awarded a Thouron Award to work at the prestigious New Boulton Center, Pennsylvania, USA. Since then he has worked in Newmarket interspersed with three stints working in Australia. Charlie recently joined the team at The Arundel Equine Hospital, West Sussex. www.arundelhorsevets.co.uk

24 FEBRUARY 2013 Horse Deals

Navicular disease and a number of small tendon injuries and strains within the hoof wall also fall into this category. Often initially causing low grade and intermittent lamenesses, the variety of presentations of these injuries means a thorough investigation is often needed to establish the root of the lameness. Given the range of foot problems that can occur in show jumpers, a thorough assessment of the feet is made when looking at a horse for a prospective purchaser. In horses competing to a high level, radiographs are often recommended to make a more in depth assessment of the feet. This will allow the vet to make a proper assessment of the ‘balance of the feet’ and also allow the vet to assess the navicular bone for problems.

The suspensory ligament runs from the back of the upper cannon bone to the sesamoid bones at the back of the fetlock. It is part of the ‘stay apparatus’, which allows horses to support their huge weight while only expending very little energy. It most important function is to prevent overextension of the fetlock joint. Damage can occur along the length of the ligament. If an injury occurs to the mid or lower part of the ligament this will often be picked up early due to heat or swelling associated with the damage. Injury at the level of the top of the cannon bone can be more difficult to palpate. Injury can occur in the front or hind limbs and is often bilateral (occurring in both left and right legs at the same time). The lameness caused by suspensory ligament problem can initially be mild and difficult to detect. In some cases the lameness will also increase on softer surfaces and may be exacerbated on the turn. A diagnosis of damage to the ligament is made using a combination of local anaesthetic to pinpoint the painful region and ultrasound scanners to assess the affected area. Treatment of suspensory problems includes controlled exercise, anti-inflammatories and shockwave therapy. Increasingly modern Tel: 01733 468000

GOLDEN RULES When visiting a potential horse to purchase – whether he’s a show jumper or hack – first impressions go a long way, especially when it comes to assessing any possible health issues. Look out for the following: l The horse should look bright eyed and perky, with a shiny coat. l He should look alert and interested, and greet you as a friend. l The inside of his gums and nostrils should be pink without discoloured mucus or discharge. l He should stand up square without pointing or resting a front leg. l His droppings should look ‘normal’ in colour and consistency. l At rest, he should breathe easily without coughing. l He should appear well muscled and the right weight for his type. l Ask if he needs any special shoeing and check his hooves well trimmed. l All four legs should feel cool, with no swellings. l Check he has had regular check-ups with the dentist, physio, chiropractor and saddle fitter.

treatments such as injections of stem cells into the affected areas are also being used to try and reduce recovery times and the quality of the repair.

Bone spavin

This is a relatively common problem in older competition horses. It occurs as a result of arthritis within the hock joint. The hock is actually divided into four joints with the lower joints being the most commonly affected. Show jumpers are particularly predisposed to it because of the compressive forces that go through the joint on take-off. There is no typical presentation of horses www.HorseDeals.co.uk

with bone spavin though loss of performance, toe dragging, a reluctance of the horse to canter on a particular leg are all early potential signs of the disease. In more severe cases a reluctance of the horse to have the leg picked up and lameness may be seen. Diagnosis of bone spavin can be confirmed by injecting the lower joints of the hock with a local anaesthetic to numb pain from that region. If a significant improvement is seen in the horse’s action, X-rays can be taken to assess the degree of arthritis. Radiographs show characteristic changes, including a hardening of the bone in response to local inflammation and stress.

Though the disease is ultimately progressive, an early diagnosis, careful management and prompt treatment can allow horses to return to competition in many cases. Treatment options include oral antiinflamatories, such as bute and “medicating” the affected joints, which involves injecting a small amount of steroid into the joint to reduce inflammation. A range of other oral and injectable medications are also available which are aimed at maintaining healthy cartilage within the joint. Having ridden and assessed a horse you are looking to buy, if you are concerned about any of the conditions discussed above mention it to the vet performing the vetting so he can focus on that area to give you peace of mind that you are not buying a problem.

Show jumper Geoff Billington has represented the UK in Olympic, World and European championships, but is as well known for his out-of-ring pursuits, including his Edge of Glory tour. He shares the gear he can’t live without BEST HORSE: It’s Otto. He took me to the top International shows and the Olympics at Atlanta in 1996 and Sydney in 2000. WHY? He was world class. He came to me as a six-year-old with about £100 winnings on his card. You can’t tell how good they are going to be at that stage, but he had a massive jump. He couldn’t control himself, though! He used to jump so big into a double, he’d almost land on the second part, let alone have another stride before taking off. He had so much power, but just didn’t know how to control his body. He learned his craft, though. By the time he was an eight-year-old he was jumping in big classes and went on his first Nations Cup – that was in 1994. He went on to take me to two Olympic Games and finished sixth individually in Atlanta. He also won two team bronze medals, 1997 European in Mannheim and 1998 world in Rome. FROM: He was sent to me by Gerard Leaver. BEST TACK: Devoucoux and Butet saddles, as well as Horseware Ireland rugs. WHY? Devoucoux saddles suit me and, at the moment, I use them a lot, but I use different saddles for different horses. Butet saddles are another favourite I also use. For smaller horses, I like to ride in flatter, close contact saddles. For the bigger horses I choose saddles a little more substantial with knee rolls and thigh rolls – my legs are

BEST YARD CLOTHING: John Whitaker International. WHY? For the same reasons as I’ve mentioned on the right – they’re comfortable, hard-wearing and practical. I especially like their Brogini gaiters and De Niro boots (left). They are the strongest and the best, and when you have to wear them all the time, they have to be comfortable.

BEST COMPETITION CLOTHING: John Whitaker International – the jodhpurs, jacket, shirts, the lot. WHY? Because I get it free! OK, yes I do get the clothing free, but if it wasn’t good quality and didn’t fit well, I wouldn’t wear it. Like any professional rider, I’m wearing these clothes day in, day out and they have to be comfortable, fit well – almost like a second skin – be hard-wearing and wash well.

is no good leaving some horses at home! There is more space for everything such as the tack, etc, and still suits our needs with a shower, etc. If I’m going away to shows for a long time, I’ll put a caravan on the back. The body is on a Scania – a big, powerful beast. I think it is more important to have a powerful engine, not to speed as we are limited to 56mph, but to be able to get up hills, especially when travelling to shows such as Spain and Portugal and the back-breaking hills you meet en route. It means you can travel up those hills at the same speed as driving on the flat – even if it is at 56mph! FROM: Quigley horseboxes (www.quigleyhorseboxes.com). Tel: 01733 468000

Eventing with Lucinda

FrederIcks News from the eventing world from our columnist

I

Lucinda’s excited about her horsepower for 2013 www.horsedeals.co.uk

R TOP TIP

l “Once a child is riding independently, a pony has got to be the sort that gives confidence,” says Lucinda. “That doesn’t mean it should be a plod, but one that a little rider enjoys riding and taking on appropriate challenges.”

Lucinda has lots going on ahead of the start of the eventing season

(Millie) and will be aiming them at the age championships. Both have had six-week breaks from ridden work, though in Marley’s case that coincided with semen collection. Apparently he worked it all out pretty quickly! We’re delighted that all the testing procedures have been successful, so we can sell the semen abroad as well as offering AI here. It’s a chance for mare owners to get in on the ground floor of an exceptional young stallion’s career and we’re already seeing interest. Different riders have different ideas about giving horses winter breaks. The youngsters needed it, but others need to be kept ticking over; horses are athletes and this is the philosophy that human athletes follow. You have to be ahead of the game and if you give a horse a longish break and then, perhaps, he gets a cough in January when he’s only just starting work, you’ve lost a lot of fitness and preparation time and could end up losing the first half of the season. As I write this column, my line-up for 2013 is looking good. I’d love to have both Flying

n terms of competing, there might not seem to be much going on at this time of year, but I’ve got plenty to think about. There’s a lot of excitement at Rosegarth as I have a new feed sponsor in The Pure Feed Company and great news on the horsepower front. When The Pure Feed Company approached me, I was immediately impressed by the quality of their feed and their approach to nutrition. It was easy to switch the horses over to it and not only do they all love it, they are also looking and feeling fantastic. As there’s no mixing involved, it’s quick and easy to feed, so it also helps save time on the yard. As well as keeping horses on track for the first big event of the year, Fontainebleau, I’m involved with final plans for the online auction this month of three embryo transfer foals. Britannia’s Jubilee and Britannia’s Pride are – no prizes for guessing – out of Brit, and Mardi Gras is out of Be My Guest. All are by the event stallion Mr Big Cat and hopefully they’ll show the same talent as Brit’s first youngsters. And, of course, they have great bloodlines, so will be of interest to breeders as well as riders. Uptown Eventing handled the auction of another Brit baby, Britannia’s Jewel, last year. This was as exciting as it was successful and the filly has a lovely home and a bright future with Lucinda Hawkins-Adams. It was real bite-your-nails stuff when the auction reached its climax and hopefully it will be the same this time. I’m thrilled by the early successes of Britannia’s Mail (Marley) and Little Britannia

Finish and Prada at Badminton and have high hopes for the rest of the team. I also have new and existing owners asking me to find horses to compete on their behalf, so I’m able to go shopping. At home, my clinics and demo days are going well. We’ve had a lot of interest from Pony Club branches and riding clubs in our half day tours, where people can meet the horses and ask questions. Ellie, my daughter, has developed a great relationship with her New Forest pony, Merrie Mink. Minkie is giving her lots of confidence and she loves him to bits. The confidence showed when she took part in a Pony Club team competition on her previous loan pony, Stuart, and the team won. I’m wondering if I have a future actress, singer or both on my hands. Ellie has played Cinderella in her school play and she and her friends have auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent. Their act is a mix of singing and dancing, so we’re all hoping they’ve got through. By the time you’re reading this, the days will be starting to get lighter. Good luck with your preparations for a new season and I’ll catch up with you next month! HD

R BUYERS’ GUIDE

Expert advice to help you find the right horse for eventing, hunter trials, team chasing or the hunting field

38 FEBRUARY 2013 horse deals

he adrenaline rush provided by riding a good horse cross-country is why most event riders are addicted to their sport. It’s also the reason why so many enthusiasts are hooked on hunter trials, and why team chasing can be the ultimate challenge. Finding a horse who can help you meet solid fences at a reasonable speed and stay safe isn’t easy. Cross-country stars come in all shapes and sizes – but what really matters is finding a horse who has the temperament and ability to complement yours.

Tel: 01733 468000

WORDS: CAROLYN HENDERSON

Go cross-country in style T


essential BUYinG aDViCe

Don’t assume that you have to look for a big horse who covers the ground, though one of those might do nicely if he has the manoeuvrability to go with it. Event rider Phoebe Buckley’s horse of a lifetime is the barely 15hh Little Tiger, alias Frostie, who took her round Badminton and Burghley. Now, at the age of 18, Frostie is team chasing with the Cunning Stunts and hunting with the Cottesmore. “She might look like an overgrown pony, but she thinks she’s 16.2hh,” says Phoebe. The secret of their success is that they are on the same wavelength, which is vital whatever cross-country discipline you are aiming for. If an undoubtedly talented horse scares you silly when you try it, you’re unlikely to forge a perfect partnership. There is no shame in trying a horse with a good competition record and having to admit that you aren’t going to get on with him. It happens to the best riders, at top level. “I like to get from one side of a fence to the other as quickly as possible, while others like to have their horses so they can set them up a bit more,” says Phoebe. “My horses have to be adjustable, but I also want them to be able to work things out for themselves. “That’s the beauty of producing horses from the start. I try and train the babies from day one so that they are going forward and thinking for themselves.”

What’s your game?

Cross-country riding is horses for courses and there’s always a risk that one who is, say, a brilliant team chaser won’t be as brave or

The right conformation for the job will help your horse stay sound

reliable when asked to go solo round a hunter trials course. So if you’re aiming at a particular area of competition and looking for a horse who is already experienced, make sure he’s proven himself in that area and, if possible, see him in competition. If you’re looking to bring on a horse, perhaps a youngster or one who has reached his limit in another sphere, you’re taking more of a

gamble. Most young horses with a trainable attitude will enjoy being introduced to cross-country, but this is a job for an experienced rider. Confidence breeds confidence! Phoebe and other team chase riders often do well with ex-racehorses; ones who have point-to-pointed but perhaps aren’t quite fast enough on the racecourse can make the switch successfully. Others have moved from flat racing or hurdles to team chasing or hunter trials, but need more re-schooling. Team chasing can be a comfort zone for an ex-racehorse, as he’s working in company, at a slightly steadier pace, and can be put in front or behind his team-mates. Event horses who have reached their competitive limit often enjoy hunter trials and team chasing. They rarely lose their enjoyment of going cross-country and more often, it’s simply that they don’t have the scope to go advanced or are let down by their show jumping ability. Ex-show jumpers fall into two categories. Some take to cross-country like ducks to water, while others are careful jumpers who ‘waste’ time in the air and find it difficult to adjust to a new way of going.

On the level

If you’re starting out on your cross-country ambitions, be realistic about horsepower. Don’t try and cope with a Ferrari when you haven’t yet got the skills to match. “If you’re starting out, it’s good to have a horse who has been round the block a bit,” advises Phoebe.

Whether you aim to team chase or event, ensure your horse is proven in that discipline

TOP TIPS

l An experienced horse can help a more novice rider build confidence cross-country – but you don’t want one who has learned how not to do it! l Former event horses and some ex-racehorses can become good cross-country specialists. l Team chasing can provide a comfort zone for an ex-racehorse, as he’s jumping in company. l If you’re riding at lower levels, don’t discount cobs and native breeds as they can be ideal. l When you try a horse crosscountry, feeling exhilarated is good – feeling scared isn’t. l Have a horse vetted and discuss any conformation or previous injury worries with the vet.

Fit for the job

It’s vital you and your horse are well matched

“At the same time, you don’t want one who has learned how not to do it. There’s no point in having experience if it’s bad experience!” With novice courses starting at 60cm (2ft) or even lower, hunter trials should be within the scope of most horse and rider partnerships. Adults who ride native ponies can also do well, so don’t discount purebred mountain and moorlands as well as native crosses and cobs. Obviously, the farther up the ladder you go, the greater the demands. Open hunter trials courses are usually around 1metre (3ft 3in) or slightly larger. In both cases, you usually will be riding against either a pre-decided time over the whole course, or there will be a 40 FEBRUARY 2013 horse deals

timed section through part of it. If team chasing appeals, be prepared to tackle about 25 natural obstacles in a course of approximately two miles. Novice classes are ridden against a pre-determined time and fence heights will be a maximum of 1m (3ft 3in). Intermediate courses go up to a maximum of 1.7m (3ft 6in) and open tracks are 1.7m plus. At intermediate and open level you’re riding against the clock. Sadly, the British Riding Clubs pilot novice hunter trials championships had to be cancelled last year, but will hopefully be on the calendar for 2013. This has been designed as a team of four competition, with two riders jumping at 70cm and two at 80cm.

It’s always best to have a horse vetted before you buy, but the fact that a horse has suffered a previous injury – perhaps when eventing or racing – won’t necessarily preclude him from enjoying and staying sound for a crosscountry career. If you know his history, tell the vet who is carrying out the pre-purchase examination and be realistic about the demands you’ll be putting on the horse. If the horse has been rested appropriately and rehabilitation carried out correctly, he may still be capable of hunter trials and/or team chasing. However, if a horse has conformation that predisposes him to injury, he could be more of a risk than you want to take. Again, ask your vet’s advice – but conformation problems such as long cannon bones and pasterns and being markedly back at the knee are all signs of weakness. A horse who is very upright through his pasterns may also be less likely to stand up to wear and tear, as his joints will be less able to absorb concussion. How much risk particular faults present depend on their severity and the horse’s overall conformation. Other factors include how well he is trained and ridden, ground conditions and even sheer luck, but the more a horse has in his favour, the better. HD Tel: 01733 468000

He's also competed recently in dressage successfully up to Elementary. Hacks alone/in company. Good to box. He does have a slight shiver hence the price, this doesn't affect his work in any way. 5* home is essential.

W

hether you’re an amateur rider looking for a straightforward horse to compete, a retrained racehorse to go into a second career, or a family friend, Carol Richardson may have it behind one of her stable doors. And that’s only the start. At Panama Sport Horses UK in Gisburn, Lancashire, Carol can also train a racehorse or racing pony for you, improve your riding and show jumping skills, or offer a choice of www.pan performance s porthorseama stallions if you’re suk. looking to breed co.uk your own to find ou success story. t more While most dealers find a tight niche in which to specialise, it’s unusual to find one with such a wide remit. But Carol, a former international show jumper, started her career in racing and was a successful amateur jockey until an accident curtailed her racing career. She also has input from her husband, Nick Saville, who rode and trained show jumpers and National Hunt horses, as well as training riders of all levels. It’s a formidable joint CV. “We cover everything, but the biggest market is for horses that have been there, done it and are ready for an amateur rider to get on and do a job,” says Carol. Horses with experience and the right temperament are not easy to find, but she’s always on the lookout for ones she can match up with the right riders. “Sometimes you see them at shows and think: that will do the job,” she says. “And sometimes we take horses in part-exchange that, with a bit of work, turn out to be just what another rider is looking for.” Carol has a real love of Thoroughbreds and thinks many people have the wrong idea about them. “They’re intelligent and athletic,” she says. “A lot of people think they’re mental, but most are very trainable. Some are a bit sharp if they’ve been started off wrongly, but a lot of

l “When you’re looking for a horse, don’t automatically discount an animal if the reason for sale is that the owner simply doesn’t get on with him,” say the experts at Panama Sport Horses UK. “Something that presents a problem to one rider won’t necessarily do the same to another – we all have different ideas of the perfect horse!”

problems are down to the way people feed them. In racing, they’re stuffed full of high energy food and you can’t carry on doing that and expect them to be easy rides.” Incorrect feeding is one of the commonest mistakes she sees new owners making. “We tell people to take a horse home, turn it out and to start with, give it carrots and as much hay as it wants,” she says. “It’s only when they’ve ridden it a couple of times and are starting to get to know it that they can start giving extra feed as needed.” Their recent success stories include Galileo Figaro, an eight-year-old ex-racehorse by Galileo who is now owned by Nicola Turner. He finished his racing career – having arrived in Britain via stables in Australia and Japan – in the autumn of 2011 and Nicola started competing him in dressage in May 2012. The pair are now winning at British Dressage affiliated Novice level and will be going to the Winter semi finals this month and the Petplan Area Festival Championships in April. Carol, who also supplied horses for the London 2012 Olympics pentathlon competition, does all she can to ensure that buyer and horse are well matched and if she doesn’t know a rider, insists that the first ride takes place in her small indoor school. “If someone isn’t going to manage a horse, I’ll tell

them,” she says. “You want rider and horse to be happy. “The difference between amateur riders and professionals is that amateurs want a horse that looks good. Professionals don’t care what it looks like if it does the job.” This year, Carol’s back in the show jumping ring competing a new team of horses, including homebred youngsters. She also has two point-to-pointers in training. That explains the yard’s impressive facilities, including indoor and outdoor schools, all-weather and grass gallops and an equine hydrotherapy centre. Nick is the developer of the Panama spa, which uses cold salt water to help rehabilitation after injuries and to maintain soundness. It’s a mix of high tech and down to earth, but Carol is just as happy matching a novice rider with a fun horse – the type she affectionately dubs hobby horses – as looking for that elusive star jumper to go through the grades. No wonder so many customers are taking their hats off to Panama Sport Horses UK. HD

The yard even has its own spa

Dressage with

SPENCER WILTON R TOP TIPS

Top dressage rider Spencer Wilton shares his advice on buying dressage horses – and the importance of vettings

Spencer’s advice when you’re buying a horse:

H

Why vetting is a must

Whatever type of horse, and however much you are paying for it, don’t risk buying without a full five-stage vetting. If nothing else, it helps to paint a full picture of what you’re buying and if you have to take into account any natural weaknesses.

l Where possible, use your own vet for a full five-stage vetting. l If buying a dressage horse, make sure it has good conformation, eg straight limbs, good angles in the fetlocks and hindlegs, etc. MAtt RoBERts

aving enjoyed our first Christmas and New Year off work in years and recharged our batteries, Jay [Halim] and I have returned with renewed energy, just in time for our yard move this month. It’s been a hectic few weeks, not only with getting the horses back into full training after their short break, but also fitting in countless planning meetings and discussions with builders. I’m happy to say it’s all finally taking shape and looking great. Now we can’t wait to add the final finishing touches and move in. In between all the excitement surrounding our move, I’ve also found time to go horse shopping for clients, which is never an easy task. You usually start with a list of definite requirements, but then find yourself drawn to something completely different! In my experience, very often you might go and look at a horse that sounds like it fits the bill, but then you come across something else you fall for instead, so it pays not to be too blinkered. I’m a great believer that horses find you. Most of us are fussy when parting with our money for our dream horse, and rightly so. I usually get a good gut feeling about a horse within minutes of seeing it. I can’t quite describe it, but it’s a bit like butterflies in the stomach – something just feels right. Of course we’ve all made mistakes, and I still get nervous when a client asks me ‘Should I buy this horse? Is this definitely the right horse for me?’. Advising someone about buying is a huge responsibility as there are never any guarantees about future soundness, behavioural issues or trainability – none of us as trainers have crystal balls unfortunately. Horses can change according to their environment and a different rider, so you have to expect some challenges. The gamble is will you be able to overcome them and form a successful partnership?

It’s been a hectic few weeks for Spencer (right) and Jay as they prepare to move yards

For example, you might be buying a young horse that hasn’t finished developing and is still weak from lack of training. Knowing that he has weak hocks is important because this will determine the kind of work you ask him to do in the first few months. A big part of training horses is helping to strengthen any weaknesses and enhance their strong points, so it’s important to be realistic about what you are buying. Another consideration is you may plan to sell your horse in the future, and if you do your job properly, you should make a profit. This is another reason why it’s so important to make sure you have a full set of X-rays done after the horse has passed his initial vetting. After all, you wouldn’t buy a house without having a full survey done, would you? I always try and use my own vet, or if not, get him to recommend someone in the area. I also think it’s important to attend the vetting yourself, so you are there to ask any additional questions and listen to what the vet has to say. For dressage horses to reach top level, good conformation is essential, so take a good look at him in the stable before you see him in-hand and then ridden. Dressage horses need to look strong and be built for the job. A youngster might look a bit weak, but you must ask yourself will he improve with correct feed and training, or will you always be battling against what nature has given him?

l X-rays should include images of the horse’s feet, fetlocks, stifles, hocks and back. l Always ask to see the horse walked and trotted up in-hand first. l Make sure you return to see your prospective purchase a second time and this time get on the horse first, rather than wait for him to be ridden by the seller. l Don’t buy a horse that is only ridden in an indoor school. Ask to see him ridden outside too.

For more advice, go to www. horsedeals.co.uk or scan the QR code.

In this case, it’s important that you pay special attention and watch while the horse is tacked up and mounted. Does he stand quietly, has he been hacked out on his own and with others, does he run off if startled? If you’ve ridden him the first time in a snaffle, ask to ride him the second time in a double bridle, just to make sure he is equally happy in both. Also, if a novice rider is planning to keep a horse at home, all these things are important because they may not have the back up of an experienced trainer to come to their rescue if things go wrong in the first few weeks. Finally, if you’ve put the horse through his paces and he’s passed his five-stage vetting with flying colours, don’t expect the seller to offer a returns service. Buying horses is a gamble and there are no guarantees – the best thing you can do is to do your research, make sure you test out the things that matter most to you during your trial rides, take expert advice and go with your gut feeling!

Vetting explained essential BUYinG aDViCe

Having a horse vetted before you buy him is an essential safeguard. Here, we explain the different stages Words: Jane Carley

R BUYING ADVICE

The examination

The standard examination is conducted in five stages, although the first two stages may also be performed as a stand-alone examination – or a ‘two-stage vetting’. There are limitations to the examination, not least that it provides a picture on one day only, and can’t reveal if the horse has been lame or will be in the future. It also doesn’t include a pregnancy test, and vets won’t provide a height measurement, as this must be done on a proper pad and can have a significant influence on the horse’s value. Vices are not necessarily detectable during the examination. However, if vices, or evidence of vices – such as windsucking – are observed during the examination they are reported to the purchaser, recorded on the certificate and taken into account in the concluding opinion.

The stages Stage 1: Preliminary examination

This is a thorough external examination of the animal at rest using visual observation, palpation and manipulation to detect clinically apparent signs of injury, disease or physical abnormality. It includes an examination of the incisor teeth, a thorough examination of the horse’s eyes in a darkened area and listening to the horse’s heart and lungs at rest.

Stage 2: Walk and trot in-hand

The animal is walked and then trotted in

A five-stage vetting is recommended before you buy

72 FEBRUARY 2013 Horse Deals

hand to detect abnormalities of gait and action. Ideally this is carried out on firm, level ground. The horse is turned sharply each way and is backed for a few paces. Flexion tests of all four limbs and trotting in a circle on a firm surface may be carried out if the examining veterinary surgeon considers it safe and appropriate to do so.

Stage 3: Exercise phase

The horse is usually ridden and given sufficient exercise to allow assessment when it has an increased breathing effort and an increased heart rate. Its gait is also assessed at walk, trot, canter and, if appropriate, gallop.

Stage 4: Period of rest and re-examination

The horse is allowed to stand quietly for a period. During this time the respiratory and cardiovascular systems may be monitored as they return to their resting levels.

Stage 5: Second trot-up

The horse is trotted in-hand again to look for any signs of strains or injuries made evident by the exercise and rest stages.

The results

The certificate reports the findings of the examination, including all significant signs of disease, injury or physical abnormality. It also includes the examining vet’s opinion as to whether or not, on the balance of probabilities, those findings prejudice the horse’s suitability for its intended use. If the vet considers that the horse’s clinical history represents a greater than normal risk of it developing future problems (ie recurrence or delayed consequences of a prior condition), this is indicated on the certificate along with an explanatory note. Despite such observations, the horse may nevertheless be suitable for purchase based on a risk/ benefit analysis. HD

Be prepared If you’re selling a horse, in order to give the best chance of a successful vetting you should provide: l A clean, mud-free horse. l Somewhere flat to trot the horse up in a straight line. l For a five-stage vetting, somewhere to see the horse ridden – a field may be adequate, but a school is ideal. l A handler and/or rider for the horse. l A dark stable to allow examination of the eyes. l Ideally the horse should be kept in for 24 hours before the examination so that any stiffness/lameness that could work off with exercise is apparent. l For clear guidelines on the pre-purchase veterinary examination, which are summarised above, visit www.beva.org.uk/ppeinfo

Insuring an older horse essential BUYinG aDViCe

R BUYING ADVICE

Expert advice to help you find the right policy to protect a horse who’s heading into his teens and beyond

Setting the level

The biggest decision to make is the level of cover you need. Once a horse reaches a certain age, many policies restrict not only the type of veterinary fees cover available, but the market value for which a horse can be insured. Veterinary fees are, for most owners, the 74 FEBRUARY 2013 Horse Deals

Cover for vet fees is often restricted on veteran policies

main reason for insuring. When colic surgery results in bills of £5,000-plus, and a lameness investigation and treatment can soon take you into four-figure costs, veterinary fees insurance can be a literal life-saver. Some insurers say that the only way they can continue to offer cost-effective insurance for older horses is to restrict cover to injury. This means that if your horse gets kicked by a field companion , you would be covered, but if he suffers an attack of colic, veterinary fees cover would not apply. Some companies will offer cover for illness as well as accident, but expect your premium to be relatively more expensive. It all comes down to what you think will work for you: are you prepared to pay a higher premium for peace of mind, or do you prefer to keep premium costs down in return for limited cover, knowing that in some circumstances, you might have to face the cost of a large vet bill? Another common strategy insurers use when offering policies for older horses is to limit the sum insured, often setting it at a maximum of £1,500. This will apply even if you have previously insured him for a much larger sum with the same company and if you feel his market value is much greater. Look, too, at whether proposed cover for an older horse includes complementary treatment.

For instance, physiotherapy carried out with the recommendation of and under the supervision of your vet may help to get your horse back in work more quickly, but not all policies will cover it. With any long-standing insurance policy, you need to review the amount for which your horse is insured regularly. It’s important to remember that if your horse dies, or has to be put down on veterinary advice, an insurer pays out the sum insured or the market value, whichever is the smallest amount. It’s generally accepted that the price paid for a horse equates to the market value, but just as a horse who achieves a good competition record will go up in value, so one who gets older and achieves less may be classed as less valuable than he once was – even if you feel he’s priceless! So if you find a policy which doesn’t limit his market value, make sure it’s set at a reasonable level and, if necessary, get conformation that the insurers accept it.

Essentials and extras

Whatever the age of your horse, you need decent cover for third party liability. If he escapes from his field and causes a road accident in which someone is injured or even killed, it makes no difference in law whether he is four or 24. Court cases have proved that no horse owner can afford to be without third party liability and this may be included in your older horse’s insurance policy, either as standard or as an option on extra payment. If it is optional, you may prefer to look at other ways of obtaining it – for instance, through British Horse Society membership. Cover for saddlery and tack, personal accident and dental fees and other benefits are often available through policies tailored for older animals. As these relate to property and to the rider/handler rather than to the horse, they shouldn’t be any more expensive than if taken out as part of a policy for a younger animal. As with any insurance, shop around and read policy documents carefully. Age need not be a barrier – even if you have to jump a few hurdles to find the right product. Tel: 01733 468000

Words: Carolyn Henderson

C

hoosing the right insurance product is never easy, and as every horse owner knows, there’s much more to it than opting for the lowest premium. If you don’t pick the right package, the worst case scenario is that you could find yourself facing a veterinary emergency without vital funds. Less dramatically, you could find that you’re paying for a product you don’t actually want. If you’re looking to insure an older horse, you may need to think even more carefully. Advances in veterinary science and nutrition mean that horses are living active and successful lives well into their late teens and beyond – but maintaining insurance cover may mean taking a whole new look at the market. From an insurer’s point of view, the older a horse becomes, the higher a risk he presents. Just as older people are more likely to be susceptible to some illnesses and to conditions related to wear and tear, so are older horses. Although it may seem unfair, especially if your horse is fit and well, risk analysis can only be based on statistics. However, careful shopping can still give you essential cover. The first step, whether you are insuring a horse you have owned for several years or a new purchase, is to check the age limits companies impose at policy inception. While most insurers offer cover for older animals, age limits vary. Mainstream policies for leisure and competition animals usually run until the horse is 17, though some insurers will want you to switch to a veteran policy when your horse is 16. Don’t leave decisions until the last minute. Some companies offer wider cover than others, but may only be prepared to sell you a policy if you insure your horse with them by the time he reaches a certain age – usually 16.

GOLDEN RULES

l Check the company’s age limits with regards to older horses when you first look at the policy details. l Check too whether the policy offers veterinary fee cover for illness and injury, or just for injury. l Ask yourself are you happy to insure your horse for a limited market value, if necessary?

l Find out whether the policy includes complementary treatment, or are you happy to accept that you would have to pay for this? l Check that you have adequate third party liability.

Counting the cost of equine insurance With pet insurance rising to an all time high, Barry Fehler, deputy chairman of South Essex Insurance Brokers (SEIB) explains why it’s essential for horse owners to do their research when looking for the best policy

W

ith an increase in premiums of 40 per cent, the subject of pet insurance has been making the headlines, leaving pet owners concerned about increases well above the rate of inflation. South Essex Insurance Brokers (SEIB) has been involved in pet and equestrian insurance for 50 years, and during this time a pattern has formed where new insurers enter the market with little experience and offer a rate that doesn’t reflect the risk. Over recent years, this problem has been compounded by comparison sites. Insurers place their pet products on these sites at very competitive rates and expect clients to understand the conditions, exclusions and

cover. This leads to issues relating to pre-existing conditions that the pet may have suffered from previously. In most cases the condition will be totally excluded when making a claim, so in essence the owner is purchasing an off the shelf product that may not suit their requirements. It may appear that pet and horse insurance is a simple product to purchase and, in fact, the rate is fairly simple to understand. It directly reflects the amount of money paid out by the insurer in claims for vet’s fees. Therefore, if a claim is made, on average once in every four years, the amount paid out for veterinary treatment cannot vary between insurers by much.

R

GOLDEN RULES When it comes to finding the best equine policy, SEIB has this advice: l Use an established insurer with a good record of claim payments and consistent premium rates. l Be aware that comparison sites are often used by the new insurers to the market and may not contain all the insurance products on the market. l To ensure long-term protection for your horse, look for a fair premium from an insurer that has been offering cover for horses over many years. They will know and be able to assess the risk correctly, and by paying slightly more in premium today you could save thousands over the lifetime of your horse. l For more information visit www.seib.co.uk

Weighing up the best deals

If one insurer is substantially cheaper than the average market rate, one of three things must happen – in due course their rates must substantially increase; they will withdraw from the market: or they will find ways to avoid paying claims by careful underwriting, which leaves the person insured exposed to risk. Sadly, this is exactly what has happened. Many insurers withdrew from pet insurance in 2012

following significant losses and those that are left have significantly increased premiums. This has left pet owners without insurance, or having to pay huge premiums to keep their animals protected. Unlike motor insurance, taking advantage of low premiums in the short term is risky; if the animal suffers sickness or injury it may not be possible to obtain full cover from another insurer should premiums rise or the incumbent company leaves the pet insurance

market completely. The accident or illness could be excluded from further treatment as there is a pre-existing condition, or a new insurer may not offer cover under any circumstances. This has already happened to pet owners and many have found themselves unprotected and totally exposed. We can see the same pattern emerging with horse insurance. HD FEBRUARY 2013 Horse Deals 81


Selling a horse? essential selling aDViCe

We explain the legal issues to consider when selling a horse, with advice from the experts at HorseSolicitor

R

T

he legal issues that need to be considered when selling a horse vary depending on whether or not the horse is being sold in the course of business or by a private seller. When selling a horse in the course of business, the Sale of Goods Act 1979 imposes terms that require the horse to be fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. This means that if a buyer can prove that the horse is not fit for purpose the seller is legally obliged to refund the financial losses that have been incurred by the buyer as a result of the sale. This will include but not be limited to the purchase price. Under the Act for example a horse could be returned to the seller if it was purchased for show jumping but it transpired that it suffered from a pre-existing back condition that prevented it from performing. The buyer would need to prove that the horse is not of satisfactory quality by obtaining a veterinary report, the cost of which could be added to the claim against the seller. The veterinary expert would only need to state that on the balance of probabilities the injury pre-dated the purchase. When selling a horse in a private sale it is up to the buyer to check that the horse is of satisfactory quality. As the seller you do not have to disclose known defects but you must not mislead the buyer in any way by misrepresenting the horse. If the buyer can show that a statement was made by the seller that was false or misleading, that the seller made the statement to induce a sale and that had the seller not made said statement the buyer would not have purchased the horse then the buyer will have a claim against the seller for misrepresentation. The seller does not have to make a statement in order to mislead however. If the buyer tells the seller that they want the horse as a quite hack because they are a novice and the seller is aware that the horse can be strong and requires a competent rider then there is a legal

SELLING ADVICE

it’s advisable to have a written agreement Hanna Campbell duty to disclose this to the buyer. As such remaining silent can give rise to a claim for misrepresentation. At HorseSolicitor we have dealt with a number of cases in which the rider has been over horsed. If misrepresentation is proven and the horse has caused injury the seller may have to meet a compensation claim. The seller in the course of a private sale also needs to ensure that the horse is as described as per Section 13 of the Sale of Goods Act. It is therefore important to ensure that the advertisement placed accurately depicts the horse that is being sold in terms of it’s age, size, history, ability and temperament. There are also occasions where a private seller would have a duty to disclose information in the course of a private sale without being asked. This would occur if the person selling the horse is known to the buyer and has a relationship in which trust is assumed. In these circumstances a fiduciary duty can be implied. The seller should insist on the buyer riding the horse to ensure that it cannot be returned under the Distance Selling Regulations. The Distance Selling Regulations enables a buyer to return a horse with no valid reason.

Insisting on the buyer meeting the horse prior to sale also enables them to ride the horse and assess whether or not it is for them. If someone is buying a horse for a specific purpose such as for dressage or jumping they should ride it in an arena or go over a few jumps. By meeting the horse the buyer is given the opportunity to gain an insight to the horse’s temperament and this can help to avoid disputes after sale. Whether you are selling in the course of business or privately it is always advisable to have a written agreement that documents all of the existing issues that the horse has. The document should give a detailed description of the horse that is being sold. It should include details of the horse’s age, vices, temperament, ability, history and any ailments that it has. Both parties should sign the document and the seller should answer honestly all questions that the buyer has about the horse. HD

Buying a horse ESSENTIAL BUYING ADVICE

R BUYERS’ ADVICE

As a potential new horse owner it’s wise to be aware of your legal rights, as the experts at specialist law firm HorseSolicitor explain

T

he basic rule in English law is caveat emptor – let the buyer beware. It is the purchaser’s obligation to exercise due diligence and ensure he/she is getting what he/she is paying for. However in the course of a sale the seller is not entitled to misrepresent. This means that the seller cannot tell lies to obtain a sale. Unless a person has misled you in respect of something such as the health, temperament or ability of the horse that they are selling, a buyer in a private sale would have no recourse. Further, misled does not mean merely staying silent as to a known problem that the horse has – the seller would actually have had to mislead you and you would have to be able to prove the same in order to make a successful claim for misrepresentation. You would also have to demonstrate that the false statement induced you to enter the contract. This means you need to show that had you not been given false information you would not have proceeded with the purchase. Due to the fact that in the course of a private sale you have no recourse if the seller merely failed to tell you about an ailment that the horse has, claims in misrepresentation can be difficult to prove. It often comes down to the buyer’s word against the seller’s. It is therefore advisable to have the seller complete and sign a form detailing a list of specific questions in relation to the wellbeing, ability and temperament of the horse. Ask that he/she signs the same. If it later transpires that the horse is not as represented it is not a case of your word against his/hers as to what was said in the course of the sale, you would have evidence to bring a claim. It is also advisable to keep a copy of the advertisement that was placed if this is how you came across the horse.

often HorseSolicitor is contacted by buyers who are shocked to find out that the horse they thought they were purchasing is not suitable. It is far better to spend the time and money ensuring as far as possible that the horse is suitable rather than having to seek legal representation having found out that you have bought a horse that is unsuitable or unsound. It might be that the seller is genuinely not aware of any problems the horse has but that there are underlying health issues. As such, it is important to have a horse vetted prior to purchase to ensure, as far as is possible, that you are not going to run into problems. This is not a legal requirement but as specialist equine solicitors we regularly have enquiries from individuals that have bought a horse without having had it vetted wanting to know what their legal rights are. We are often asked whether or not the horse can be returned when a problem arises. Clearly if the horse was purchased in the course of a private sale and there are no grounds for a claim in misrepresentation we are unable to assist. A veterinary examination is not expensive

when compared to the potential vet bills that could be incurred by failing to proceed with a vetting. Further the cost of keeping a horse that cannot be ridden can be extremely frustrating when you are told that a veterinary examination could have avoided this. If the vet misses something that he/she should have spotted on a veterinary examination you would potentially have a case for professional negligence. We regularly deal with such matters and would always advise that you ensure that the horse is vetted by a specialist equine vet as opposed to a vet who also deals in small animals.

Buying from a dealer

When the seller is selling in the course of business, the harshness of the rule caveat emptor is tempered by the Sale of Goods Act 1979, which implies into the contract various terms to ensure that the goods are of satisfactory quality. Goods are deemed of satisfactory quality if they meet the standard that a reasonable person would regard as satisfactory, taking

It’s always wise to have a potential new horse vetted

PIC: ZOE WILSHER

Take precautions

We would strongly advise that you have the horse vetted and ride the horse a number of times in various situations prior to purchase. This is not a legal requirement but far too 84 FEBRUARY 2013 HORSE DEALS

Your perfect equine partner could hiding in this issue of Horse Deals Ð but always take common sense precautions when buying

account of any description of the goods, the price and all the other relevant circumstances. If for example a horse was purchased from a dealer as a competition horse in the course of business and it transpired that the horse would not load on to a trailer/lorry there would be a potential claim under the Sales of Goods Act. The argument would be that the horse is not fit for purpose because the dealer was aware that you intended competing the horse yet you are unable to transport it to a show. You have far more protection when buying from a dealer than you do when buying from a private seller. This does not mean that the precautions stated above should not be taken. You do not always know whether or not the dealer would have the means to pay out were you to bring a claim against him/her and it always best to avoid litigation when possible.

When things go wrong

If you have taken the above steps yet you still find yourself in the unfortunate position of having to pursue a claim, you will be pleased to hear that the majority of claims settle out of court. Whether you are pursuing a dealer

WWW.HORSEDEALS.CO.UK

under the Sales of Goods Act or a claim for misrepresentation if your losses are in excess of £5,000 you would be able to instruct a solicitor on a no-win no-fee basis providing the solicitor deems you to have above a 50% prospect of success. If the claim proves successful you should be entitled to keep 100% of your compensation and the solicitor should recover his/her costs from your opponent. If you were unsuccessful the solicitor should write off his/her costs and you should pay nothing. If you paid less than £5,000 for the horse the solicitor would not be entitled to recover his/her costs from the other side which means that you may wish to pursue the matter yourself through the small claims court rather than paying a solicitor to act on a private hourly rate. Alternatively if you have home contents insurance or other insurance policies you may well benefit from free legal expense cover, which means that providing the panel firm of solicitors informs the insurer that you have above 50% prospects of success they should act for you for free even if your loss is not above £5,000.

Passport control

Having bought the horse, it is vital you notify the Horse Passport Agency to avoid a fine. It is also advisable to ensure that you have adequate public liability insurance in place. While this is not a legal requisite, failure to do so may result in you becoming personally liable for a claim were your horse to cause a serious accident. While some people are hesitant to take out insurance because they feel that insurance companies may look for a way of avoiding payment, providing you have not misrepresented anything to them and under the terms of the contract you have a valid claim, there are ways of enforcing compensation for breach of contract. As a horse owner you will of course have responsibilities under the Animal Welfare Act 2006. Failure to adhere to the welfare requirements stipulated within the Act can result in a maximum fine of £20,000 or sentence of up to six months in prison. HD

Building an arena Expert advice on building and maintaining an arena to ensure you get the most from your manège

B

uilding and maintaining arenas has always been an art. Now it’s also a science, as the latest research projects show. Some of the greatest interest has focused on surfaces. Researchers at the Animal Health Trust in Newmarket can already tell us that wax-coated surfaces or a combination of sand and a stabilising material such as rubber or fibre seem to be associated with a lower risk of injury than sand used alone, woodchip or grass. Sand is still popular and cost-effective when used with other materials, but don’t be

www.horsedeals.co.uk

tempted to use any old type. Fine sand works better than coarse and if you decide to mix it with rubber, small rubber chunks appear to be associated with less tripping than large strips. If you have a surface that needs topping up, or would like to rejuvenate one that has been down for several years and no longer rides as well as you would like, talk to specialist arena companies about additives. New materials such as fibre mix-ins can work wonders. Dr Rachel Murray, head of equine studies at the Animal Health Trust, says that there is no

perfect surface for every job. Dressage horses need to work on a surface that provides stability and confidence, while show jumpers need these qualities, plus a small amount of ‘slip’ as they land over a fence. A top-level Western reining horse has unique requirements, because when performing sliding stops and spins he needs to be able to slide through the surface. Whatever surface you choose, make sure it is kept at the correct depth. Top-up requirements vary, depending on the surface and the amount of use an arena gets. FEBRUARY 2013 horse deals 93

Building from scratch

Arena installation is never going to be cheap, but mistakes can be even more expensive. Even if you have access to machinery such as earth-moving equipment, consult specialist arena builders rather than assume you can save money by doing all or part of the work yourself. This can be important at the planning stage, as in most cases you will need to apply for planning permission. Although construction companies are unlikely to get involved in individual planning applications, they should be able to provide photographs of similar projects to show what the finished arena will look like. Most established companies are building arenas all the time and because they have teams in place, can do the work more quickly. Many also use high-tech equipment such as laser levelling devices. There are several factors to consider when siting an arena and it’s best to ask companies you are considering to make a site visit. Many will do this without charging. If you have a choice of sites, do you want your arena to be in quiet surroundings, or where horses who are being worked can see the yard and other things going on?

There are several factors to consider when siting a new arena 94 FEBRUARY 2013 horse deals

The bigger the arena the less your horse will be prone to injury

This comes down to personal preference: some riders believe that horses should be free from distractions in a learning environment and others feel that an arena in busier surroundings replicates a competition environment and that horses should get used to this from the start. Bringing in materials means that access for large lorries is needed. If your arena site demands that access be made through fields, be prepared to wait for decent weather conditions. Good drainage is vital and although preparing the base and sorting out drainage will eat up a large chunk of your budget, it’s false economy to skimp at this stage. The right surface is important, but if you don’t get your arena right from the ground

up, nothing can work miracles. There are different types of base available and you need to talk to your contractor about considerations such as budget, the amount of use the arena will be given and even prevalent weather conditions. For instance, in areas where there has been particularly heavy rainfall over the past few years, some arena specialists are recommending tarmac bases as a good choice for professional yards. Fencing is another consideration. In some circumstances, a owners may choose not to have exterior fencing. This cuts down overall costs and some dressage riders believe they get a truer picture of the way horses work when there are no barriers. However, this is a minority view. The danger of doing without arena fencing is that Tel: 01733 468000

R TOP TIPS ● When building or maintaining an arena, getting specialist advice from the start will pay dividends.

● If you have a specialist yard, choose a surface suitable for the work your horses will be doing. ● The base construction is just as important as the surface. ● A good drainage system will extend the life of your school and enable you to use it for all or most of the year. ● Think big – a larger arena is better for your horse, more versatile and may not be as expensive as you think compared to the cost of a smaller one. ● Once you’ve made your investment, look after it – maintenance is vital. ● Choose an arena leveller suitable for your surface. ● A watering system may be needed to keep down dust in dry periods, especially for an indoor school.

IF YOU’RE THINKING OF INSTALLING AN ARENA, TRY AND BUDGET FOR A LARGER ONE IF POSSIBLE accidents happen and every rider parts company with a horse at some time. Good arena fencing makes it much more likely that a horse will stay within its confines and is very much a safety measure when working with young or inexperienced animals. Post and rail is the favourite choice, but there are other options. Depending on the landscape options, your arena contractors may suggest building an earth bund – though for extra security, you may still want to have post and rail.

thinking of installing an arena, try and budget for a larger one if possible – if you’re sticking to dressage dimensions, you’ll find that building a 60m x 20m arena rather than a 40 x 20m one doesn’t add as much to your overall bill as you might think. If you want to jump in your arena, the minimum size usually recommended is 60m x 25m. Guidelines for circular pens for lungeing or loose work are a minimum of 15m diameter; many trainers specify 20m diameter.

Size matters

Taking care

Research shows that horses worked on large outdoor arenas have been shown to be less prone to injury when compared with those worked in small indoor ones. So if you’re www.horsedeals.co.uk

Correct maintenance is as important as correct construction and a ‘perfect’ surface that is poorly maintained may be more detrimental to a horse’s soundness and

performance than one which is not ideal, but well looked after. One of the simplest but most important rules is to pick up droppings before they become trampled into a surface. The heavier the use an arena is put to, the more frequently the surface will need to be levelled. Regular levelling of the surface will minimise the risk of horses tripping or stumbling. If your arena incorporates a membrane, it will also minimise the risk of it being damaged. This can happen if the surface becomes too thin in certain areas. An arena leveller is a great investment and there are designs that can be used with quads and 4wd vehicles as well as tractors. Check that the model you consider is suitable for your surface and look for designs which bring in material from the kickboards. You may also want to think about a watering system to keep dust levels down, particularly in indoor schools. These range from fully automatic systems to travelling and manual sprinklers.

Expert advice to help you find a bargain when an equestrian property comes under the hammer

B

uying property at auction has a reputation of heart-racing excitement and quick-fire action, and it can be a wonderful way of securing a new home or business. The process avoids all the lengthy purchasing procedures normally endured in buying, only for the risk of the whole thing falling through at the eleventh hour. At an auction, as soon as that hammer falls, the property is yours. However, it isn’t a process to be undertaken lightly and it’s imperative you’re prepared to do your homework and research before auction day. Auction properties are ‘sold as seen’ and your first step if you are considering buying at auction is to view the property. This allows you to see an accurate picture of the property, its condition and location. Buying ‘blind’ – ie not having viewed the property beforehand – could lead to enormous, and costly, problems later. It is advisable to view the property more than once so you are aware of every facet you are considering bidding on. It is also advisable to take along a trusted builder, architect or surveyor and get an idea of works to be done and likely costs. You generally have to act fast though – there is perhaps only four to six weeks between the publication of the auction catalogue and the auction itself. Compare prices and conditions with similar properties in the area for sale with local agents, if at all possible. The guide price on auction properties is usually set relatively low in order to entice bidders, so have in mind the true market value and bid accordingly.

Buying an equestrian property at auction R BUYING ADVICE

Check the small print

Legal packs – giving all the information on the property, including its boundary lines and any covenants that may be placed on the property – are available through the auctioneer, and can usually be viewed either at their offices or online. It is essential that the legal pack is read carefully and digested thoroughly. It could contain covenants, special conditions or certain legalities which could have potential implications on the value of the property, both now and in the future. It may even pay to carry out property and land searches of your own if you have any concerns, although these

ArrAnging your finAnces is imperAtive, especiAlly if A mortgAge is required 100 FEBRUARY 2013 Horse Deals

are usually part of the legal pack. It is strongly recommended you instruct your lawyer to read the legal pack. Even if you read through every page carefully, you may miss something vitally important. Lawyers deal with legal packs every day, so it is well worth paying their fee. After all, you are considering spending hundreds of thousands of your hard-earned money on the home of your dreams. Arranging your finances prior to auction is also imperative, especially if a mortgage is required. A 10 per cent deposit plus any auction fees is needed on the day, and the other 90 per cent is required to be paid in full 28 days later. If a mortgage is required, it is prudent to have discussed all financial implications with a bank or building society and have arranged a mortgage in principle.

It has been known for successful bidders to have paid their 10 per cent deposit and lost the lot because they couldn’t come up with the balance in time.

The auction process

Be prepared for the auction itself, as the process can be daunting to the uninitiated. Perhaps experience a dummy run as a spectator before going to one to actually bid. You don’t actually have to be there, as you can bid by telephone, but the ‘buzz’ of an auction room is an experience – and you can look around and assess the competition! On the day, arrive at the auction early, preferably an hour before it is due to start. This gives you time to park, etc, and you don’t arrive flustered. It also gives the chance to again read through the pack available at the Tel: 01733 468000

GOLDEN RULES Before you attend an auction, bear in mind the following points: l It’s important to remember that auction properties are sold as seen, so arrange your finances prior to the auction and always view the property prior to this, too. l Bear in mind that on the fall of the hammer, a binding contract is made. l The guide price on auction properties is usually set relatively low in order to entice bidders, so have in mind the true market value and bid accordingly. l A deposit, usually 10 per cent, is required immediately after the auction. l Legal packs must be viewed, and it is strongly recommended you instruct your lawyer to do this. l The usual time period between the fall of the hammer and completion is just 28 days. This means the remaining 90 per cent of the balance is due in full 28 days after the auction.

auction just in case there are any last-minute changes or additions. Auction houses can vary when it comes to bidding. Some require you to register before the auction starts and even indicate which property you are interested in, while at others you take a seat and submit your details afterwards if you have been the successful bidder. Buying at auction can be quick and you can usually see who you are bidding against, although phone bids are also acceptable. And there is no gazumping or gazundering – the highest bidder on the day is the new owner. Another plus is the contract from the fall of the hammer to completion is quick – usually 28 days. There is no arguing backwards and forwards by lawyers, but this is why it is imperative your lawyer reads the legal pack. www.HorseDeals.co.uk

When it comes to bidding, make sure you can be seen clearly by the auctioneer and he is aware you are bidding – leave the casual nose-tapping bid to the movies! As the bidding increases so will your heart rate, but don’t get carried away and stick to your budget. Auctions can be exciting, and bidding can be an adrenalin rush. In these circumstances it can be tempting to go over budget – especially when you have invested a lot of prior time and effort. At the fall of the hammer, the contract is binding. The successful bidder is the new owner of the property and is legally obliged to complete in the time stated. A deposit – usually 10 per cent – will be required immediately after the successful bid. A cheque, cash, banker’s draft or credit/debit card are usual acceptable forms of payment,

but check with the auction house beforehand. The remaining 90 per cent is due in full 28 days later, but it is usually prudent to insure the property immediately after your successful bid. If the property you are bidding on doesn’t reach its reserve, it might not necessarily be the end of the matter. The auctioneers can still act as agents and are able to do a deal between you and the vendor if a price can be agreed at the end of the lot. This is a great way to pick up a bargain if the vendor is willing to deal after the auction. Likewise, it isn’t unheard of for a deal to be tied up prior to auction and the property withdrawn, so it’s worthwhile checking this possibility with the auctioneers. Ultimately, it can be pretty nerve-wracking when bidding at auction, but the thrill and euphoria of having a bid accepted on a legally binding deal is fantastic. And if your research has paid off, you just might have got yourself wa real bargain. HD FEBRUARY 2013 Horse Deals 101

R BUYERS’ GUIDE

Think big!

Expert advice to help you make the right choice when buying a larger horsebox that’s suitable for three or more horses

B

uying a lorry to take three or more horses is a big purchase, in more ways than one. With any horsebox, it’s vital to check that you are aware of legal restrictions and have a clear idea of priorities, but the bigger you go, the greater the weight of responsibility. First off, you need to be clear on realistic weight options. If you’re transporting no more than three horses, a specialist company with a good reputation can build a 7.5 tonne box without sacrificing structural strength, but it takes a lot of coachbuilding know-how, as well as an ability to advise customers on how to identify personal priorities and work out what could be added without taking up too much of your weight allowance.

www.horsedeals.co.uk

The added advantage for many drivers is that those who passed their car test before 1 January 1997 can drive lorries up to 7.5 tonnes without taking another test. If you passed your test after that date, you need to take farther tests to gain the relevant categories on your licence. The C1 category entitles newer drivers to drive vehicles between 3,500kg and 7,500kg and the C category – the equivalent of the former HGV Class two or three – means you can drive horseboxes over 7.5 tonnes, though it wouldn’t allow you to drive an articulated lorry. Drivers who passed their car tests before the 1997 cut-off date also need to gain the C category to drive lorries over 7.5 tonnes. In practice, if you need to take another test,

it makes sense to go straight for the C category, which will cover you to drive any horsebox within legal limits. This applies particularly if you work with horses, as the ability to drive a large horsebox is a qualification many employers look for and sometimes insist on. Although UK laws mean that many people who have never driven a vehicle larger than an ordinary car can jump straight behind the wheel of a 7.5 tonne lorry and head off down the nearest motorway, it isn’t recommended. If you’re thinking of buying a horsebox, it’s a good idea to take some lessons with a qualified, professional instructor – some even offer courses designed specifically for horsebox drivers.

Seek expert advice

Buying any horsebox takes specialist knowledge. If you’re going into the over 7.5 tonne market, talk to experienced owners and drivers about their experiences, as you can learn a lot from other people’s mistakes! Many drivers have strong preferences on types of chassis cab, but if you’re having a lorry built to your specifications, it’s often best to let your manufacturers source one for you. Not only will they have the contacts, they should be able to get a better deal – and if anything goes wrong, you have a far wider comeback than if you bought a chassis separately and asked them to build onto it. If you’re buying a lorry that’s ready to go, you can make your own initial checks. But getting it checked by an independent engineer with specialist horsebox knowledge is a wise investment; don’t begrudge the cost, as a specialist will spot things even the most knowledgeable lay person may miss and will save you money and hassle.

Narrow down your search

When looking at lorries, this general advice – sourced from the Organisation of Horsebox and Trailer Owners and the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency – will help: l Check the bodywork, cab floor and steps for rust for rust. l Check the tyres and exhaust. They give you an idea if the vehicle has been well looked after. l Search for rot and damp patches on the floor of the vehicle. l Make certain the ramp woodwork, hinges and balance springs are all sound and in good working order. If appropriate, check that the ramp is manageable by a woman on her own. l Make sure when you view the vehicle that the engine is cold and has not

been started before you get there. l Check there are no oil leaks from the engine. l Check the oil light does not come on when started. l Check engine speed and smoke emission when stationary. l From the cab, check gauges; lights; indicators; wipers; the play of the steering wheel; horn and warning lights; and speedometer illumination. l Check any wiring for the lighting areas in the living and horse areas and make sure they run from a separate battery - not the main vehicle battery. l Check that the vehicle is sitting square. If it is lopsided, suspect a suspension problem. l Remember that all horseboxes over 7.5 tonnes must now be fitted with tachographs l All tachographs must be inspected and recalibrated at a VOSA-approved centre. This must be done every two years in the case of digital catalogues and every six years for older, analogue ones. If a speed limiter is fitted, check that is has the appropriate calibration plaque and seals.

Driving ambition The most luxurious large horseboxes can be the stuff that lottery winners’ dreams are made of. If the sky’s the limit, you can have everything from air conditioning for horses and humans, fitted kitchens and luxury bathrooms to the latest in navigation technology and home entertainment. If you’re limited to practical considerations but need to stay away, reasonable living accommodation is an essential rather than a luxury and will also increase the re-sale value of your luxury. Popout living has become increasingly popular when weight isn’t an issue. HD

Living accommodation can range from the luxurious to the more basic

If you’re a regular on the competition scene, and ride two or more horses, a larger lorry may be a wise investment

‘It’s a working lorry’ Show producer Lynn Russell drives one of the biggest horseboxes on the circuit. At 12m (39ft) it’s the maximum size for a rigid lorry and takes up to six horses. Although it’s comfortable for horses and people, choosing the specifications came down to practical considerations. “It’s a working lorry,” says Lynn. “The living area has everything we need, including a fridge and cooker and a bathroom with shower and toilet, but it’s practical. “There are no carpets and everything has a wipe-clean surface. The seats in the living accommodation are leather, so they’re comfortable but practical. Even more important, we have a lot of space for the horses. I had heavy duty partitions fitted, because cobs like to lean on them no matter how carefully you drive, and all the fittings are stainless steel. “There’s also a good storage area, which is really important, twin diesel tanks and a huge water tank. Yes, it’s a big lorry, but we never have to weigh anything before putting it on.” Lynn found that the only difference

TOP TIPS

l Make sure you have the relevant categories on your driving licence. l Get the box checked by an independent, specialist engineer who understands the demands of horses and horse people. l If you’re moving up from a smaller lorry, think about having lessons in a larger vehicle with a qualified instructor first. l All horseboxes over 7.5 tonnes must now have tachographs fitted. l If you’re having a horsebox built, talk to the manufacturers about your needs and lifestyle. They’ll help you make the most of your budget and may suggest options that will make your life easier. l Consider running a credit check to see if there is any outstanding finance on the vehicle.

Lynn drives one of the biggest lorries on the circuit

l The Driving Standards Agency publishes two books that, together with professional assessment and training, will help you get up to scratch. They are The Official Theory Test for drivers of large vehicles, ISBN 0-11-552119-4 and The Official Goods Vehicle Driving Manual, ISBN 0-11 552195-X. l If you’re moving up to a horsebox over 7.5 tonnes from a smaller lorry, keep an eye on your time. Whether you are driving in a private or commercial capacity, you need to abide by driving hours regulations. l For more information on drivers’ hours and tachographs, see www. dft.gov.uk/vosa and click on the links Publications, then Manuals and Guides, then Drivers’ hours and tachographs guides. This isn’t the easiest site to navigate, but it will also give you lists of approved tachograph and speed limiter centres.

Buying a horsebox Expert advice to help you buy a lorry with confidence, whatever your size needs or budget

W

hen buying a horsebox it’s important to be clear in your mind from the outset what you need with regards to size and on board gadgets. You might be blown away by a state of the art lorry, complete with living accommodation and en suite shower, but if you’re only going to be travelling up the road to local competitions all this luxury will be an unnecessary expense. Instead, be realistic and ask yourself the following questions: l How many horses will I be transporting at any one time? l How much can I really afford? l What am I legally allowed to drive? l Am I prepared for the substantial running costs – including an annual plating (the lorry’s equivalent of an MOT) and servicing, etc? l Have I got somewhere safe to keep it? Once you’ve sussed your budget and needs, you can start flicking through Horse Deals or head online (see www.horsedeals.co.uk) to browse the lorries for sale ads. Whether you buy privately or from a dealer is another point to consider. Buying privately may bag you a good deal, but buying from a dealer offers you some protection, as well as a warranty. “When buying a lorry from a dealer you have implied and express rights,” say the legal experts at solictors SGH Martineau. “Express rights refer to those that you expressly agree with the dealer, for example the price, whether it will be sold with a full tank of fuel and how long any warranty will last, etc. If any of these express rights are broken then you’ll have legal rights against the dealer. In addition, the law implies other rights into your contract of sale/purchase.” In summary, the horsebox must be ‘as described’ by the dealer in his advertisement. So, for example, a nearly new lorry can’t be 10 years old, or a right-hand drive can’t be a left-hand drive horsebox. The lorry must also be of satisfactory quality and ‘fit for purpose’. In this regard, make sure you keep written evidence of any specific purpose you make known to the dealer. Finally, the lorry must match the description in any brochure, including the 120 FEBRUARY 2013 Horse Deals

R BUYING ADVICE

dealer’s website – for example a red lorry can’t actually be blue!

Buying 7.5 tonners

If you’re buying a bigger lorry, the most important point to consider is whether or not you can legally drive it. Lorries weighing between 3.5 tonnes and 7.5 tonnes can only be driven by holders of a C1 category licence – and anyone who passed their driving test for a category B licence after 1 January 1997 will not receive automatic entitlement to drive category C1 vehicles, so will need to take an additional test. For more on driver licensing visit www.direct.gov.uk/en/Motoring/Driving foraliving/Drivinglorriesbusesandcoaches/ DG_4022548

Weight is another big issue. The 7.5 tonne horsebox used to be the staple form of transport for every equine activity from hunting to showing, with the ability to hold ‘everything but the kitchen sink’ for if you had to stay away at an event. But many of these lorries were significantly overweight when loaded with three horses, the family, water and diesel, leading to safety concerns. As a result, VOSA has clamped down on overweight lorries, and it is a common occurrence to be directed off the road and weighed. If you are overweight, the lorry can be impounded, which is at best inconvenient, and so a horsebox’s unladen weight has become a key selling point, with manufacturers using ever-lighter materials Tel: 01733 468000

GOLDEN RULES

A smaller 3.5 tonne lorry may better suit your needs – and budget

and innovative designs to stay within the law. When drawing up your horsebox wish list, be aware of unnecessary luxuries that may add weight. Air conditioning units, for example are very heavy, and how often are you likely to need air conditioning when away at shows in this country? Another

heavy item is an awning, which is not really essential for most purchasers.

Buying 3.5 tonners

If a smaller 3.5 tonne lorry will better suit your requirements, a plus point is that anyone with a category B licence (an ordinary private car licence) can drive a lorry with a gross vehicle weight of up to 3.5 tonnes, making these vehicles more flexible for the average horse owner. However, one serious concern for purchasers of horseboxes under 7.5 tonnes, which are subject to less regulation than HGVs, is their suitability to actually carry horses. So ask questions before you buy – for instance has the undercarriage and body been strengthened? HD

When you go to view a potential lorry, follow our guide to essential checks (or have a mechanic do it for you!): l Overall condition – look for signs of rust, wear and damp and check the ramp’s in good condition. l Wheels and tyres – check the wheel nuts and tyre tread depth, which should be at least 1mm or more, and have the tyre pressures checked regularly if you decide to buy it (a tyre centre will be able to do this for you if necessary). Check the spare, and look at the edges of all the tyres for signs of cracking or perishing. l Battery – does this look regularly maintained? To reduce battery problems, many drivers clean and protect the battery terminals with petroleum jelly. Check too that the lighting in the living and horse area runs from a separate battery to the main lorry battery. l suspension – check to see if the vehicle is sitting square or lopsided, and listen for any knocking sounds when the vehicle is in motion. l the parking brake, or handbrake – check it works, and while you’re in the cab check whether everything appears in good working order. l Brake systems – check for air and fluid leaks. l tachograph – if there is a tachograph installed, check whether your planned use of the vehicle makes it exempt. If your vehicle is fitted with a tachograph but you only use the instrument as a speedometer, you must ensure all the seals are intact, and that it has been calibrated and fitted with both the calibration and K factor plaques. l Fuel systems – check the fuel cap has a seal fitted and has no obvious fuel leaks. Check too that no black smoke is coming from the exhaust pipe, as well as the security and condition of the exhaust system. If you buy the lorry, the oil level should be regularly checked and topped up accordingly. l anti-freeze – to prevent cracked engine blocks, burst radiators and split hoses, the anti-freeze level in the cooling system should be topped up regularly. l Windscreen wash – has this been topped up? A mix of cleaning fluid, anti-freeze and water is best – and if you decide to buy the lorry you’ll need to make sure you’ve got plenty for the drive home. l speed limiter – if the vehicle has a speed limiter installed, check it has the appropriate calibration plaque and seals. l speedometer – make sure the speedometer illuminates. l steering mechanism – check for obvious oil leaks and any unusual knocking noises when driving. l Headlights and lamps – check that they work and are the right colour, and look for faded and broken lenses, or missing reflectors at the rear and side of the box. l You’re insured and legally able to drive the weight of vehicle before taking it for a test drive.

Insuring your trailer or horsebox essential BUYinG aDViCe

R

Whether you’re buying a horsebox or trailer it’s important to ensure it’s properly insured from the moment you drive it away…

BUYING ADVICE

H

orse boxes and trailers are desirable – but sadly this means they’re desirable to thieves, too. And whether you’re looking to protect your equestrian transport from theft or damage, the right policy is a must. Most companies offer a mix of policies, from fully comprehensive and third party, fire and theft cover, which caters for ‘social, domestic and pleasure’ use, to policies covering business use of the lorry or trailer. Of course, costs vary and will depend on the type, age and value of your transport, the type of use it will face during its day to day existence, where it will be stored and, in the case of a lorry, how many drivers will be named on the policy and their driving experience. As with all insurance, it pays to shop around for quotes and compare policies – many people opt to pay slightly more to insure with a company that has a good reputation and can offer the back up of a team of horse enthusiasts who understand the concerns horse owners’ face and the types of transport problems they’re often up against.

Legal concerns

You are required by law to insure your horsebox, however this is not the case with trailers – though it is recommended,

CheCk with your towing vehiCle’s insurers that the trailer’s Covered for third party Claims… 132 FEBRUARY 2013 Horse Deals

R

GOLDEN RULES especially as trailers can often be tempting to thieves and difficult to fully secure. Before towing a trailer, check with your towing vehicle’s insurers that the trailer’s covered for third party claims – though this won’t cover you for any damage to the trailer or loss through theft. Separate trailer policies are available, so check online to see what different companies offer. Companies offering both lorry and trailer insurance often offer breakdown cover too, so ask about this when you make enquiries. Before you get a quote, make sure you have your lorry or trailer’s details to hand, including the make, model and year; any serial or VIN numbers; details of how many horses the vehicle’s designed to carry and what you’ll be using it for. It’s a good idea to keep a copy of your trailer or lorry’s insurance documents either in your towing vehicle or the lorry’s cab in case of emergency. HD

l While it’s not a legal requirement to insure your trailer, it is highly advisable in the event of theft or damage – and security devices such as wheel clamps and hitch locks may reduce your premiums. l When getting a quote ensure you have all the necessary paperwork to hand – including any serial and VIN numbers. l Enquire about breakdown cover, as many insurers offer this, too.

Buying a trailer essential BUYinG aDViCe

Expert advice to help you make the right choice when choosing a new or second-hand trailer

R BUYING ADVICE

R

GOLDEN RULES When buying a new or used trailer, important points to check include:

l Does it have the option of a front unload ramp, or just a rear unload? Some new designs have a side ramp to help make the prospect of loading into a trailer more enticing from a horse’s point of view; while rampless, step-up entrances are another new option on some models. l How easy are the ramps to use and are there any signs of rot or wear?

W

ithout the huge running costs involved in running a lorry, trailers are often the common sense choice for owners who enjoy the odd weekend show and need transport to fresh hacking country and the occasional trip to the vet’s, etc. Whether you buy a brand new, top-of-therange trailer or a rather more modest second-hand one is a matter of personal choice and budget, but with manufacturers bringing new innovations to the market all the time, modern trailers are becoming ever more high-tech. With step-up ramps, state-of-the-art suspension systems and even live-in accommodation, today’s trailers are no longer the poor relation of the horsebox, and innovative design has been the driving force behind a host of exciting new models on the market – offering owners affordable options, while making sure their horses travel in safety and style. HD

High tech additions

New, innovative design features to look out for include: l Single trailers that provide more stall width than double models, and trailers specially designed to offer a roomy, comfortable ride for two horses up to 17.2hh l Low side ramps and lightweight design l Trailers with the payload capacity to travel three horses in a herringbone (diagonal) pattern l Improvements in suspension and axle engineering, which have improved the ride for horses – with modern trailers no longer the noisy, bouncy modes of transport they once were

www.horsedeals.co.uk

l If you’re buying second-hand, has the trailer been well maintained? It’s easy to park them up and forget them, but it’s important they’re regularly serviced – during which a mechanic will take the wheels off and thoroughly check them, as well as the hubs and the brakes, and go over the electrics to make sure everything is working and undamaged. l If the trailer has been parked up for a while, check the tyre pressures, look for any flat spots and make sure the walls have not perished. l Check whether the ramp springs are well greased and check the ramp hydraulics are in good working order. l Some modern trailers have aluminium plank floors, which are maintenance free, but check the condition of wooden floors carefully. Have a good look around the area where the horses stand to make sure there is no damage to the floor or mats. l Check the the lights are working and have a look at the seven pin plug for connecting to the towing vehicle, as these can rust up.

ESSENTIAL BUYING ADVICE

Buying a trailer or lorry 10 questions you should ask the seller…

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

How long have they owned the trailer or horsebox, has it been well maintained in that time and how often has it been used? In the case of a horsebox, does it have a full service history and when does the plating and tax run out? If you’re buying a horsebox it can be a good idea to run an HPI check (visit www.hpicheck.com for more on this), so ask the owner for the licence plate. This will tell you if there is any outstanding finance on the vehicle – or whether it has a dubious past. If you’re buying a second-hand horsebox you need to ask similar questions to the ones you’d ask regarding a car, namely how many miles has it done and what condition is it in? Also, does it have power steering? Whether it’s a trailer or horsebox, the condition of the ramp’s important – can one person easily lift it on their own? Are there any signs of rot or damage? If it’s a horsebox, what’s the make of the chassis (as a general rule, buy the newest chassis you can afford)?

.......................................................................................... .......................................................................................... .......................................................................................... ..........................................................................................

..........................................................................................

How has the horsebox been built? Is it a conversion, a new body that’s been built on to a second-hand chassis or a coachbuilt body that’s built on to a new chassis?

..........................................................................................

If it’s a horsebox, does it have a fixed or tilt cab?

..........................................................................................

What is the height and width of the horse area (this applies to both trailers and horseboxes)?

..........................................................................................

Check the horsebox’s weight allowance

His sire line is exceptional, with the 2000 World Breeding champion Dimaggio passing on outstanding proven qualities, while his grandsire, international dressage star Don Primero (Donnerhall), has produced more than 15 international dressage horses. His dam line features Graditz and Grande, who produced international show jumping and dressage progeny, including 33 approved sons, 34 State Premium mares and three Olympic show jumpers – Grande Giso (Holland), Grande (USA) and Gute Sitte (Belgium). “I think of ‘Derek’ as a dressage stallion, but his mother was a very talented show jumper, whose career was cut short at a very early age due to a bad accident,” explains Gill. “Several foals I’ve bred have gone to serious competitive show jumping homes, but most have gone to dressage homes. Many mare owners use him to breed a competition horse that will perform in all disciplines, which I encourage as he passes on a fantastic temperament which makes his youngsters so easy to work with. I knew from day one that he was special.” Decanter has been mostly used on warmbloods and Thoroughbreds, as well as ponies, Arabs and Irish Draughts. His outstanding colouring catches the eye – he has a cream gene, as well as a chestnut gene with a 50% chance of passing one of them on at each mating. Decanter began his dressage career with Ulrik Molgaard at the age of seven qualifying for the National Championships at Novice level in their first season. For the past few years, he has been ridden by Matthew Burnett and the combination has rapidly progressed to Inter 1 level. “I don’t think a horse and rider can progress that rapidly unless they have a very special relationship,” says Gill, who has recently given Matthew a share in the stallion. “Derek lives with Matt and does walk in collections at a local stud while still competing. He’s a very easy to please horse. “He likes his food and his favourite part of

the day is when he gets to roll in his fresh straw in the morning. He loves attention and is never embarrassed when he is given a kiss. He also likes the dummy very much and is a very easy stallion to collect from!” Gill describes Decanter as ‘Mr Chilled’: “He’s a true gentleman and a worker who will try his hardest to please. He is very kind and affectionate, but also a real show off!”

Temperament and trainability

According to Gill, the most important trait a sport horse needs is trainability: “You can have the most beautiful, correct, huge moving horse, but if he doesn’t want to play you might as well leave it in the field,” she says. “The trainable temperament that Decanter passes on is invaluable – he suits a wide variety of mares and tends to pass on his movement and quite often also puts height onto his foals.” Decanter is a born showman who loves the attention says Gill. “People are drawn by his colour and then wowed by his movement,” she says. “He loves to show off at stallion parades

and the more the crowd clap, the more he shows off. Fortunately he can tell the difference between a competition and a stallion parade!” “He is a delight – like a Ferrari, he has so many gears,” adds Matthew. “He is beautifully behaved at a show and no problem warming up with other horses. Even if an attractive mare catches his eye, he does his best to concentrate on his work.” “People say they can tell a Decanter baby straight away,” says Gill. “He produces beautiful stock and passes on a fantastic temperament, as well as fabulous athletic movement.” But it’s not just his looks and athleticism that has earned Treliver Decanter a following of fans, it is his exceptional semen quality and fertility rates too, as Gill explains: “Tullis [Matson] once said to me ‘you could dilute his semen with dish water and it would still do the job’!” For more information visit www.treliverstud. co.uk Tel: 01733 468000
