Horse ID : RMH234

Needy is an ex-racehorse who never won a race. She is a quiet hack and has taken beginners and novices although more experienced riders can get more out of her. She likes to go behind on the way out but walks faster on the way home. She takes particular enjoyment out of pleasure rides and likes to go out in the box for a ride somewhere different. She is happy to do 15 miles even when not particularly fit. She is currently used as a companion hack as she does not like to go out on her own, although she used to when we bought her. She is easy to catch, good with the farrier and travels well. However, she does not like being groomed or having rugs changed and she cribs, undoubtedly picked up when in a racing yard. After racing, she was retrained as a hack and then kept at livery. When we bought her she was very thin and depressed. It took her a year to relax in a family environment with plenty of grazing and to put on weight.
