Torbo is a handsome forward thinking but safe TB Gelding. He is an cross country machine (no stops) with a clean BE record, having been placed in the top 10 every time out, and winning on his second outing at BE100. Perfect for GRASSROOTS, or to step up to NOVICE, and has the potential to go much further.

Dressage always in the low 30s or 20s. Ridden by a teenage boy and a girl and always in a snaffle, but sadly outgrown by 6 ft son.

Torbo has been to PC Camp, has been in NSEA teams, PC teams, Tet teams (winning intermediate mixed team at the Tetrathlon Champs 2015, jumping clear around Bishops Burton) Has jumped round an open course at the regional tetrathlon 2015, Areas showjumping, Blenheim PC eventers challenge.

Torbo hacks out alone or in company, is good with traffic and can also be led off another horse. Easy to keep, stands all day at a competition, either in or tied up to the lorry. Will travel in a trailer or lorry. No illnesses or vices.

Would also team chase. Would suit a talented young rider, looking to compete at open level PC and move on to NOVICE BE and beyond. Also has BS points and winnings.

This super horse, has looks, amiability and bags of talent.

Yam is a lovely big bay gelding, standing at 17h, he has plenty of bone and is a solid horse, only a 4yr old but he has been around and done all sorts.

He is now retired from racing so is eligible for ROR and being such a good age is now ready to go on and fulfil his potential in any sphere.

He is a great ride, snaffle mouth, he has done plenty of jumping, mainly rustics.

Very sensible in all situations, good to hack, alone in and company. Good to turn out, or lives in quite happlily. He is a really friendly character that loves attention and food!!

He is sure to make a cracking hunter or riding horse.

He is fit, clipped and ready to go. First to see will buy.

No vices, just a straightforward, happy chap that needs a new home!


**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

Very smart, well-bred gelding.

Dandy is an absolute pleasure to deal with on the ground and ridden.

He finished racing with us in June 16 and has jumped around Cheltenham with a 16 year old lad. However, he is now looking for a career change.

Dandy has hunted, been on sponsored rides, was second in his first unaff. dressage competition and has been SJ and XC schooling.

He has also competed in hunter trials this autumn. He has taken everything in his stride and tries his hardest at everything we ask.

He is still green on the flat but is willing and enjoys his work so should excel in any sphere.

He has finished racing sound with clean legs and is good to shoe, box, travel, clip, with vet and physio.

Dandy is eligible for the ROR showing/ competition series. He is a complete gentleman on the ground, out at competitions and will ride out over Dartmoor on the buckle end if required! He will ride out in company or alone happily.

He is up to date with vaccinations, teeth, farrier and physio. Dandy does weave at meal times hence the reasonable price.

It is a very sad and reluctant sale so 5 * home is a must! Home is more important than price. Any further information, please do not hesitate to ask.

Lovely natured, well mannered mare with the scope to perform in any sphere including dressage, hunting and showing. This mare has three flowing paces, works in a beautiful natural outline and has a genuine snaffle mouth at all times. She is quiet in all situations and a pleasure to have on the yard.

Eligible for RoR. She has done a little of everything, but had a few months off over the summer (due to my own time constraints) and is now back in light work.

She is only for sale due to work commitments and is in need of a 5* home that will give her the time that she deserves.

We will be very sad to see her leave the yard but I want her to go to the right home where she will be loved.

No time wasters, 5* homes only need apply.

A super chap who is a pleasure to ride.

He is well hunted with the ES&RM and has no problems crossing any country.

I have shown him sucessfully in RoR classes and he has qualified for the RoR final at Hickstead and Aintree Tarra in 2017.

He is good to ride at home doesn't get excitable or frisky if not ridden regularly. Stands at a mounting block or gate to get on out hunting. Good with other horses and ponies. I have led a pony from him out hunting. He's happy to go first or last, will stand beside a covert or off on point.

He is schooled and competed at 90 and 100 unaffiliated eventing, all from home around the family and potential to go even further. Great Grassroots prospect

He can be grumpy in the stable and will suit a confident knowledgeable yard. He is a typical thin skinned TB to groom, tickley and fidgets. He needs firm but fair handling as can be nervous that said he is a kind chap. He needs sedating to clip.

  • Thoroughbred
  • Chestnut
  • Gelding
  • 12 years
  • 16.3 hands
  • Excellent all-rounder with great potential
  • Professionally schooled
  • Kind temperament and willing attitude

Wills is 12 year old TB by Danehill Dancer (IRE) out of Willowbridge (IRE), taken straight out of racing in 2010, retrained by my, then, 14 year old daughter. Together they have slowly advanced through the levels of British Eventing, up to BE100 this season.

Wills is an excellent all-rounder with great potential who would be ideal for a riding club rider or competitive Pony Club teenager who wants to move onto horses. He has an amazing temperament, kind attitude and is always eager to please. He is completely unspoilt and ready to progress in any discipline. He needs a loving 5* home to continue his education as the decision to sell has only been forced upon us reluctantly by the rider going to University.

He has been correctly and professionally re-schooled (references available) and has good, active and straight paces. He is always obedient and harmonious in the dressage and a careful and honest jumper in both the show jumping and cross country phases. Easy and straight forward to ride. Snaffle mouthed in all disciplines. Started competing BE100 at the end of this season. Competed successful at BE80 and BE90 previously, before having time off due to rider injury. 

Wills is very bold, willing and straight forward to ride and has huge ability to go further. He excels at dressage, scoring 33 at his first BE100. He has a scopey jump and is forward going but safe cross country.

Wills will hack alone or in company, has hunted with the Berks and Bucks and behaved impeccably. He can be turned out with either mares or geldings but needs to be stabled at night.

Easy to do at all times, doesn’t get fizzed up at competitions and good to travel, clip, shoe and with vet etc. 

Good home essential as very sad sale of this sound, genuine and straight forward horse.

Price includes a professionally fitted Jeffries GP Saddle and bridle, and a selection of rugs for all seasons. Price is negotiable if these items are not required.
