Registered connemara

Make super allrounder

Connemara, Dapple grey, Gelding, 5 years, 15 hands

Freddy is a really nice horse that is going to make a super allrounder for someone. He really does do anything, I took him to his first dressage competition last week and he came fourth

However he is very sensitive and I think he had a bad start in life. He trusts me and we have built up a really good relationship, but since advertising him I have had a few people come and try him and he has got quite upset, so much so that he has got very forward going and very strong. He hasn't bucked and I wouldn't even say he is bolting, he is just very tense and gets hard to stop. This is only in the school. He is still as good as gold with me and he is hacked out regularly by my mum and a novice girl and he really is safe, passing the heaviest of traffic and not at all spooky. Because of this I have decided to offer him on loan with a view to buy, to a knowledgable home only, which will be vetted, so that he can have a chance to bond with his new owner, as I don't want him falling into the wrong hands and want to make sure that both he and new owner are happy. I have also considerably reduced his price. I am happy to show him off in the school still and have someone take him out on a hack, but having lots of different people try him in the school is really upsetting him

Freddy was bought over from Ireland last August as a very green four year old, and has not put a foot wrong since

He is hacked out by my mother who won't ride anything with any ifs or buts. He passes very large tractors and lorries. He has done two fun rides with a very novice girl and behaved impeccably

He has been cross country schooling a number of times and is now ready for his first event, which I will do with him soon if he is not sold. He has proved bold and scopey, fine with water, ditches etc

He travels in a lorry or a trailer and is easy to load, and good to catch. He does have to be doped to be shod as was very nervous at first, but he is getting better every time. I use Domosedan gel and he is fine with that. I clipped him twice and he was very good

He is now ready to go and start his career

STUNING COB MARE

  • Lovely little mare
  • Ready to go on as a coloured show cob or all rounder
  • Been to a few shows coming 2nd in her 1st ever dressage test out of 16

STUNING COB MARE

Super Little Horse now ready to further her career

Cob, Skewbald, Mare, 6 years, 15 hands

I bought this lovely little mare unbroken from Ireland as a 3yr old

She stood in the field for a couple of years to let her grow on and mature

She is now ready to go on as a coloured show cob or all rounder

She has been to a few shows coming 2nd in her 1st ever dressage test out of 16

She has been shown a few times in hand and has done 1 combined training where she went fantastic with a rider who had never sat on her before

She loves to showjump and has a huge pop in her

She is good to hack and has met traffic, she will take a western saddle or English

She is good to turn out with other horses or in a stable - She is good with the farrier and the dentist - She has never been sick or sorry

I am selling her as I have too many(hence why she has not done an awful lot) and she is too good to have stuck in a field

She is open to vet and any trial

I would consider loan / lwvtb as she really needs to be doing something now. No novices please as she needs someone to bring her on

 Price negotiable to right home

Can dreams be reality? (I hope so)
Add to my Stable

Can dreams be reality? (I hope so)

I am a petite, mature 5ft 2inch lady rider who is currently searching for her forever horse… hopefully this time it will be third time lucky as having viewed two horses both of which I lost out on, I was wondering if such an animal exists that could be given as much love and affection as I can offer

I am looking for a genuine gentleman or magnificent mare to bring back a smile onto my face

Here is my wish list:

  • Between 15 and 15.3hh
  • Between 8 – 15 years would consider younger or older for the right horse
  • All-rounder that is happy to school, jump or hack in all weathers – doesn’t have to be massive jumps but one that could jump 2ft 6 would be nice
  • Would like to compete at Novice level dressage with the aspiration to one day compete at Elementary level at local shows
  • Good to hack in company and alone whether it’s going first of last and must not hot up in open spaces as I am only small and my arms don’t half halt like they used too
  • Must be 100% in all traffic including tractors, combines, lorries etc
  • 100% in and out of the stable
  • Good to catch, shoe and clip
  • Must not nap, bite, bolt, buck or rear as I don’t bounce like I used too!
  • Hunting experience would be nice although not essential
  • Must travel in a trailer


Maximum budget £5500

Please no thoroughbred types as having owned one in the past I realise they are not the right type of horse for me

Would consider long term loan for the right horse

In return I can offer a 5* loving home consisting of:

  • A quiet yard right outside my front door with only one other horse
  • Good year round grazing
  • A washbox/solarium
  • An outdoor arena
  • Fantastic hacking facilities
  • Daily cuddles and hugs and of course the occasional carrot!
  • Summer trips to the beach
  • Regular videos and photos of your special friend so you can see how they are getting along


Finally, the promise that whatever horse I have the pleasure of meeting comes here and will not leave until they cross rainbow bridge

I really hope you may have what I am looking for, I am still having regular lessons with my BHSII instructor and now I need my perfect horse to complete my dreams and am willing to travel to wherever this horse is located

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my advert, if you think you may have my dream then do not hesitate to contact me with photos and videos via email in the first instance so I can see if your special friend may be right for me

Phone calls after 3pm only and please leave a message if you get the answer machine and I will call you right back

Competition Horse Wanted on Loan
Add to my Stable

Competition Horse Wanted on Loan

To be able to Move Yards

I am looking for a long term / permanent loan horse to event with. I currently have a 16.3hh youngster who's future I believe lies in show jumping, however I am an eventer at heart so would love to get back in the field again! I am currently based in Berkshire, however will be moving back to South Bucks in due course so the horse must be able to move yards with me!

What I would like-
Ideally nothing over the age of 10, will consider older if it has low mileage and has been looked after throughout its career, and nothing younger than 4. If already going round BE at a higher level, something that wouldn’t mind going back down to a lower level for a short time, just so I get back into the swing of things. Perfect height would be 15.3hh-16.1hh however there is scope either way. MUST be good to hack alone/in company as I love a good mooch on a quiet weekend. Some quirks I’ll deal with as long as they do not rear (bunny hopping and bouncing I don't mind) or make life dangerous. Be open please. If younger, ideally to at least have jumped round a course of coloured fences and fillers and show good promise and a bold attitude as I don’t mind the work! Colour, sex (no stallions) or breed isn’t too much of an issue, however they must have enough stamina to get round the XC! NO nasty stoppers or something known to be naughty or nappy, I’m happy with green horses whilst they’re learning to have the odd run out or lean, but I don’t have the time for older horses that should know better to behave in that manner.

I am in no rush as I would be seriously looking around the August / September time, however if there is something suitable and currently local, I wouldn’t mind coming to look after and ride a few times a week until I take the horse on permanently, gives us a head start. Please be at rest that your horse would have a high level of care and a varied and exciting life – all of my horses have ended up with incredible personalities and we always create an extra strong bond over time, bonds which aren’t too common anymore; and most importantly they love their life!

What work will consist of
Hacking, ODE’s, sponsored rides, hunter trials, team events, BE events, dressage, BS events.

I have a fair amount of eventing experience (up to intermediate), I'm very bold across the country and have broken in and produced youngsters so my flat is up to scratch, and since being on the show jumping scene for a while, I have gained more experience there, being based with a show jumper for the last few years.

Please bare in mind that the horse will also be a family horse in everyday life as my family do like to handle, groom and fuss the horses!

If you have anything, please don’t hesitate to send me a message and we can discuss further!

Much loved but under used
Add to my Stable
  • Successful show, dressage & WH career
  • Had time off so needs building up again
  • Time constraints restricting true potential
  • Sad sale of a much loved horse.

Much loved but under used

Irish Draught, 15 years, 16.2 hands

Red is a handsome, affectionate and friendly gentle giant

Was shown in hand from 2-4 yrs and then successfully shown in at Riding Club and ID Society Level. Also done Prelim & Novice Dressage and Working Hunter with previous owner

Has a mild dust allergy so lives out and needs haylage in winter. Comes into stable with rubber mats if required. Good to shoe, clip, catch, load

Used to farm machinery, roads, cattle, sheep, dogs etc. All vaccinations, dentist, worming, shoe up to date

I bought him 2.5 years ago to ride out with my children and exercise ponies from so sadly under used for last few years. Kids regularly catch and lead in from field but not a plod out riding and needs regular exercise and a firm rider who will remind him of his manners on occasion but would love to be doing more than leading ponies. Would suit fun rides, riding club, dressage etc. Can jump but hasn’t done any for several years as I have been too busy taxi-ing children to pony club and not as brave as I used to be

Had some time off with a bruised sole and a warble fly so his muscle, fitness and schooling needs building back up again. Sadly with work and children, I just do not have the time to devote to him so am looking for a home where he will be loved and someone can bring out his true potential again

This is a very sad sale of a much loved horse, so genuine enquiries only please. Will consider loan to right home

More photos and information are available on request
