  • Looking for a new friend to take pressure off existing horse
  • Good, loving, caring home awaits

Looking for a gelding (mares will not be considered), aged 6 - 9, 15hh (if at lower height, needs to have scope) to 17hh (needs to have manners - 5ft2 woman).

To be used mainly for showing, showjumping and working hunter - with the aim of working up through the classes. Don't mind a bit of a project but must be non sharp / silly / strong (incl rearing / bucking) and may do the odd day's hunting but not a deal-breaker. No TBs. Unfortunately and in the interests of honesty, minimal / not great budget due to it being sucked up in vet's bills for other injured horse - probably asking for the moon on a stick but here I start my search. However, good loving home awaits.

  • He / she will want for nothing!

We are looking for a safe and sensible horse or pony to join our family

Initially for myself a mum (I'm 5f5 and 10 1/2 stone) who can ride but the horse/pony will eventually be for my small 12 year old daughter who can ride well and nice and quietly but does lack confidence, she is coming off a saint of a 12hh pony but have had not such saints previously so this is why she can lack confidence.

I would like to hack across fields and bridleways, fun rides, local shows, school have lessons and maybe the odd riding club prelim dressage test. (I'm happy to school on if need be if it has the right willing attitude and temperament) but would prefer well schooled.

My daughter does pony club (cross country, show jumping, and fun things like very occasional low level games and polecrosse!), hacking, local shows, low level dressage test, beach rides, pootles around bareback at home, all-round general good fun. Although she can ride well she needs a confidence giver.

The pony must be comfortable at jumping 70cm sj and xc and be non spooky at fillers, water and ditches etc. Safe & steady in open spaces.

We do not really hack on the roads only rural traffic but we do school alongside a very busy road where artic lorries and loud motorbikes pass so must be ok with this.

Nothing spooky in any way or nappy as we keep them at home so have to ride away from others so no separation issues in any way. Bold and brave out hacking alone away from others.

We have dogs and sheep so would be great if ok with general family chaos! Must be non spooky with a calm, willing, straight forward & laid back temperament.

Must travel ok in a trailer and load well. Good to do on the ground, friendly person that likes attention, good to handle, bath, catch etc. Sensible when taken out and about.

Absolutely no napping/rearing/bucking or bolters please and also cannot cope with sweet itch as we live by the river and midges do not help.

Experienced, knowledgeable 5* home. He / she will want for nothing!! Can provide pc & independent instructor references, vet references etc.

Would also look at 2 horses / ponies one suitable for me 14.2hh plus well schooled and one for my daughter 13.2hh plus as not sure we are going to find a mum daughter share that fits the bill!

Shrewsbury Shropshire. Willing to travel up 1 1/2 hrs

Wanted Sensible Happy Hacker

  • Needs to hack alone & in company
  • Pop small fences for fun

I am looking for a safe / sensible happy hacker after returning to riding after several years break. I am wanting to hack alone & with my daughter and maybe attend the odd riding club rally.

I did in my youth ride & compete up to riding club national level & lower level affiliated competitions but have no desire or confidence to do that now. I have not been out of horses as I have been breeding sports horses & running a livery yard but just not ridden.

I am looking for a horse min 15.1hhs upwards not to light in bone, maybe overgrown or part bred Connemara. Last horse I had was a super retired show jumper who was fab but sadly arthritis caught up with him!

Not worried about age so would suit a horse that wants a quieter life not competing or hunting any more or a horse with injury that keeps it from doing more

I can offer an experienced home with other horses on our family farm

As I'm on a budget I would prefer loan or loan with view to buy. Realistic prices only please.


Wanted, safe and experienced!

  • Looking for my forever horse
  • I am looking for either a mare or gelding, approx 15.hh to 16.hh and aged between 9-13
  • Must be straightforward with no quirks

Hi :)

I am looking for my forever horse, due to a very bad previous experience I was mid-sold a horse that wasn't suitable for me and I have lost my confidence slightly.

I am looking for either a mare or gelding, approx 15.hh to 16.hh and aged between 9-13, will have had plenty of experience either show jumping or cross country but has breaks!

Would hack alone or in company without stressing out. I don't want a horse that is dead to the leg as I'm sure when my confidence is back I want to get out and have fun again!

Must be bombproof in traffic, I don't mind one that has the occasional spook as they are horses at the end of the day but I don't not want one that has bucked, reared or bolted!

Must be straightforward with no quirks, good with the farrier, to clip, load and to catch! I would love a super cob or connemara!

If you think you have the horse for me, please get in contact! I have a lovely yard with lots of hacking and friends that I will be able to go to beaches and sponsored rides with! Lots of riding experience but unfortunately have just been tested too far with the last one!

Thank you all for your help!

  • Correct and true to type with straight movement and no blemishes

Wanted: sensible, mature cob gelding, 15hh - 16hh

Lovely rural forever home

Ref #: 176912
  • 15-16hh cob or cob cross gelding
  • Aged at least ten, preferably over twelve
  • Safe and well schooled (ex-riding school a plus)
  • 15-16hh cob or cob cross gelding
  • Aged at least ten, preferably over twelve
  • Safe and well schooled (ex-riding school a plus)

I've recently retired my 30 year old cob, and had a difficult year with the horse I had hoped would replace him, who turned out to be unpredictably dangerous. I'm looking for a sensible, mature cob or cob cross who'll be happy to mostly do flatwork with occasional hacks (little or no jumping).

Ideally, he'll be ex-riding school; over 15 years old; have no long-term health issues; be ok to leave for a week without getting over-excited; good for farrier, dentist, clipping, etc. Cheeky behaviour is more than fine, as long as it's only on the ground and not bad behaviour when being ridden: absolutely no rearing, bucking, bolting or kicking.

He'll be kept at our quiet rural home, mostly riding in our sandschool, with occasional hacks on quiet roads and in woods. Typically, he'll be ridden ever other day either by me or by my novice husband (max 12 stone), with fortnightly lessons from a BD judge. He'll be stabled at night with daily turnout.

I'm looking for a horse that you could put a 5 year old child or a 70 year old granny on but that could also make a decent crack at a novice dressage test with practice and schooling. My now-retired horse came to me for a quiet semi-retirement after working in a riding school, and this would be ideal for his replacement.

Please email with a description and link to a video showing him being schooled, preferably three paces both in outline and on a long rein.
