**BEWARE**

BOGUS EMAILS & BUYERS!

Ref #: 22412

Increasing numbers of internet advertisers are receiving emails from bogus buyers, attempting to scam sellers

This tactic is a worldwide problem; however it would appear to be on the rise in the equine industry, targeting everything from horses and ponies for sale, to horseboxes, trailers and tack

**EXAMPLE SCAM ALERT**

We've been informed of a new email scam doing the rounds. This time the scam email in commonly coming from ‘Travis Bennett’ & 'Cynthia PT', asking a list of questions & offering to transfer a deposit and payment for shipping. Please ignore this email and if you have time report it to Action Fraud, for more details click HERE 

In another instance the scammer will contact you via email asking if your horse is still for sale, this will be followed by an email containing 23 questions as shown on the picture on the left. Please do not respond to this email. Sorry for any inconvenience caused and rest assured we are doing our best to combat this.

Another scam which is particularly common, is  when theadvertiser is contacted about an item, asking for more images, and then once the images have been received the bogus buyer will agree to send a cheque for the full amount.  At this point the seller is asked to email their full contact details to enable the buyer to send payment. The seller is then contacted again saying that the cost of shipping has accidently been included on the cheque, and could the seller forward the cost of shipment onto a courier, which is also bogus 

These scams can vary, however emails are often written in broken English and written in an over friendly style.  We urge HorseQuest customers to respond to email enquiries with caution. If something sounds too good to be true, it often is!

If you think you’ve been scammed then we strongly recommend that you contact the police

TOP CLASS 15hh GREY GELDING 20 YEARS YOUNG

I have had the privilege of owning and am not prepared to sell the perfect lightweight cob.  I am afraid it is a case of you passing the vetting to take him on not the other way around.  He is looking for a lightweight rider preferably small/petite to look after.  He would be perfect for an older experienced rider or one lacking in confidence. He will go fabulous for a good rider and still loves to strut his stuff when asked.  If you have lost your confidence but are a good experienced rider with soft hands he is the confidence giver you need. His ideal life from now on would be hacking out and some local dressage with play jumping; he loves a farm ride with friends and popping any fences en route. He loves to gallop across fields taking in a few fences and is no different whether on his own with other horses in a group. He is the best companion for young or nervous horses and jockeys, is 110% in traffic - in fact he is possibly 100% in all ways. He is only prepared to travel in a lorry not a trailer. I don’t want him to become bored as he loves trips out with friends.  He doesn’t like flies or mud and has been kept in a five star home for many years. He loves living near the house and having lots of attention, I will not allow him to go to a livery yard. Your stable management is of high priority. He currently wants for nothing and would take everything with him. I am only prepared to loan him to an equally luxurious home as I do realise someone else could get so much pleasure from this quality gentleman. 

Please tell me more about you and where and how he would live in an email to rjb@clifftopfarm.co.uk or telephone 077702 27878 or 07778 149683 and I will reply to everyone.

SUPER COB (A.KA Barney) 155cm Bay reg ID Gelding. PRICE REDUCED AS OWNER HAS NOW LEFT AND HE MUST BE SOLD ASAP.

Awesome cob who has been there and got the t-shirt, as his name suggests he really is a super cob! This chap was sold by us last year to a local home who have loved him dearly, he has been out competing and at Riding Club activities every weekend since but is sadly for sale as his owner has just been offered a place in the Army and she can't take him with her on her next adventure, and he's simply too nice a horse to waste sitting at home waiting for her to come back.

He has been to lots of local unaff dressage shows, jumped up to 1m courses and doen hunter trials. Previous to his last home Super Cob lived in Ireland where he hunted and has been shown as a LW show cob, he has been to all the big shows including Dublin and loves to show off.

He is a fun but very safe ride, he is nicely forward off the leg and switched on but tolerant. He hacks out alone or in company, his only fault is he will sometimes be a bit joggy in company.

Super Cob loves his jumping and never looks at anything, he jumps all coloured poles, fillers, water trays etc. He also enjoys going XC and will jump water, drops and ditches no problem. He needs to go to another home who will continue to keep him active and enjoy him. Very sad sale, some wardrobe by negotiation.

Seen at Livery.

GORGEOUS GEORGE

Price reduced, absolutely stunning full up 13.2hh, Traditional Gelding.

  • Absolutely top class, county level pony.
  • Sooo easy to do in every way.

  • 8 years
  • 13.2 hands
  • An incredible hind leg coupled with a fabulous length of stride and uphill cadence.
  • Absolutely top class, county level pony.
  • Sooo easy to do in every way.

This lovely man moves for fun, he has an incredible hind leg coupled with a fabulous length of stride and uphill cadence. A forward thinking chap who has been beautifully produced for the ring and excels with a competent, quiet rider. Soft snaffle mouth at all times, works in a beautiful consistent frame and he loves to jump!

Nothing phases him, successfully shown by his previous owner but our M&M's have taken up our time, and now my daughter has given up. He is absolutely top class and a real TGCA, TOYS candidate. Moves straight and true, with a real forward step. Would excel in any discipline, and certainly would not be out of place BD.

No dishing, plaiting, lumps, bumps or sarcoids. A doll to travel (lorry or trailer), to clip and shoe. Hacks alone or in company, and is used to every sort of traffic here in the country. No stable vices, wormed and vaccinated. Passported. Newly shod.

A true gentleman and a dream to have around!

I now do not have a rider for him and need to find him a home. Currently being ridden a couple of times a week by a friend.

George is not a kick along. A true snaffle mouth but is forward thinking and loves his work. He is not naughty in any way, but does like a confident rider who wants to go and have fun.

No vices whatsoever, never bargy or rude. Respects all fencing, and does not have separation anxiety, either in the field or in the stable. Used to dogs, cats, chickens, children screaming and running around. A real poppet.

He is ready for this season - full mane and tail, good feathers. No rubs or gaps.

I am seriously open to offers. I truthfully do not have a rider for him and cannot keep him as an ornament. My daughter has given up, the M&M's have been sold. He has a Fylde Samantha saddle and a Fylde bridle (plain noseband and plaited browband - laced reins).

He is a doll at shows, stands on or off the lorry. Not at all fretful.

Needs some fittening work as only ridden twice a week at the moment.


TOM


Ref #: 165014

  • By far the nicest horse I've owned in a very long time.
  • The most amazing temperament and is really honest and polite.
  • A very elevated elegant cob who is always snaffle mouthed!

It is with a very heavy heart that I am selling my horse of a life time Tom. Tom is by far a horse I've always dreamed of owning. He definitely ticks all my boxes.he is a horse in a million and by far the nicest horse I've owned in a very long time. I've put my self off from selling tom on so many occasions but I have to do the right thing for him.he is totally wasted here due to my son and his ponies taking up all my time. This horse deserves his time to shine and I'm sure he will be the brightest star in the very near future.

The best MW in the country! (In my opinion)

British bred, Tom has the most amazing temperament and is really honest and polite,he's kind and sweet as well as being shy and innocent,he really is a likeable chap that melts the hearts of everyone that crosses his path.he is as versatile as they come and a real achiever! He's an A* student. He does everything well,and is a very quick learner. Tom has a real workman like temp,he wants to please his rider....and he does! This horse can turn the saddest day in to your best day he's never failed yet to put a smile on my face. He's a real best friend this horse is defiantly a horse for life!!!

Tom will turn his hoof to anything he's been broken and produced to date by myself and ridden on the odd occasion by my 12y old son to which I trust this cob 100%. He's not been pushed or over worked but what he has had done has been done correctly. 

Schooling 

(snaffle mouth at all times) 

Tom is responsive off the leg but at the same time he doesn't rush.  He is very well established and balanced for his age. 

He is a very elevated elegant cob who is always snaffle mouthed! Tom works in a consistent light effortless shape. he gives you the most amazing Roles Royce ride. He defiantly has all the potential to show or do pure dressage, tom has been Xc schooled and popped a small course of fences he will progress very quickly if you decide it's showjumping or eventing you want to do, i haven't pushed the jump side because I wanted to get his flat work established first but he is very bold and elastic over a fence and showing a lot of scope.

Open spaces/traffic.

Tom is fantastic in open spaces he is super fun.  

He is a confidant chap who is happy to go out alone both trough the forests,across fields and in every traffic. He happily crosses the A47 and doesn't worry about buses,lorry,tractors or trailers.

He is also excellent to go out incompany. This safe cob will go in any position front middle or back.

Soundness/vice free

He is 1001% a sound.

No sarcoids

No itch's or allergies. 

No stable vices.

No ridden vices.

We are asking £9k for tom and he's worth every penny and more, he's worth his weight in gold.

You might read this and think 9k???? Are they mad Iv seen cobs advertised for 4K!

No we are not mad, and we are fully aware there are plenty of cheaper cobs out there BUT there are none like tom! We are not bothered if he sells or not so this is his price.

Yes these cheaper cobs may sound good on an advert, but I feel confident that you could try 20 cobs and decline them and then try tom and buy!  HE'S IN A CLASS OF HIS OWN!
