Tom

Tom served as a Carriage Horse at The Royal Mews Buckingham Palace and Sandringham. He took part in many State Occasions until 2005 when he was sadly diagnosed with a potentially fatal arrhythmia, an irregular heartbeat, and so was retired to The Horse Trust.

On a daily basis he is fit, healthy and happy but unfortunately his condition means there is a chance he might suffer a fatal heart attack at any moment making him unsuitable for work. However, this is not a certainty and some horses live very long lives with this condition
