Must be excellent out hacking in open spaces and traffic both in company and alone.

SAFE SANE AND SENSIBLE HUNTER WITH A GOOD JUMP

Ref #: 181200
  • 15.1hh(chunky type) to 16hh
  • Aged 7 to 11
  • Gelding or non mareish mare
  • 15.1hh(chunky type) to 16hh
  • Aged 7 to 11
  • Gelding or non mareish mare

15.1 (chunky type) to 16hh safe, sane sensible hunter with a really good jump for a 5'4", 9 stone lady. Ideally aged between 7 and 11 (though will consider sensible younger horses and low mileage older). Gelding or non mareish mare. Must be a really easy ride on the hunting field - no strong pullers - ideally a buckle end type, must not buck, rear, spin etc and take me (middle aged and slightly windy these days) safely in to a fence, without needing me to see a stride etc.

Our hunting is mainly timber hunt jumps with a few stone walls, mostly out of muddy fields or off tracks so something that will jump regardless of conditions underfoot. Must not be clingy, something I can do a gate on if everyone wants to jump something huge, that I can turn away from the field and go home on alone. And which is happy to live on its own or with just one other horse.

Must hack alone and in company and ride and lead, be excellent in all types of traffic, particularly agricultural and be sensible in open spaces. Needs to be easily managed on my own - good to load in a trailer, shoe, clip(would accept having to sedate if necessary). Would be great if this paragon would do some riding club, pleasure rides in the summer, but it is more important that it ticks the hunting box well.

A good hunting cob would be perfect - something that a lot of people would find boring is fine, am prepared to accept ugly, blemishes, never going to win a show class and some stable vices etc to find the right article.

Having bought this summer and taken someone's word on a horse (which pulls like a train and will not jump a stick in wet ground out hunting) I would like to see the horse hunt, ideally hunt it for a couple of hours myself at least, see hunting photographs and take up hunting references. I have a very decent budget for the perfect horse and am prepared to travel to try horses.

Can offer a home for life with another horse kept, on 1200 livestock farm, with excellent off road hacking.

Advanced horse wanted


Ref #: 181757
  • MUST be at least 16.2 but preferably more 17+
  • An older horse who isn't quite ready to retire as yet but who has a couple more competition years to go would be ideal due to budget
  • MUST be at least 16.2 but preferably more 17+
  • An older horse who isn't quite ready to retire as yet but who has a couple more competition years to go would be ideal due to budget

I have been training and competing someone's horse for 2.5 years. It started off as a share initially but the lady loved to see her horse training and competing so over time I was the sole rider. We had qualified for our first PSG this year but unfortunately didn't get to do it. The horse is now being ridden at a lower level.

Myself and the owner had a great time over that period with her being eyes on the ground. It was really great to share the ups and downs of dressage with someone and there was lots of fun times.

I really miss competing and training at that level and am looking for a similar set up again if possible. However, I do have a limited budget to purchase a horse at PSG level or above. An older horse who isn't quite ready to retire as yet but who has a couple more competition years to go would be ideal due to budget.

MUST be at least 16.2 but preferably more 17+
