Meet the lovely and adoreable Thomas, he is a 15.3hh 7yo maxi cob Good to box, shoe, catch, hack, traffic fully vaccinated

He is a real gentle giant, super soft and easy to do in every way, great in the field, happy to with others or on his own, he loves attention and has perfect manners, lovely family horse.

He is a lovely comfy hack, hacking out alone and in company, good in heavy traffic, we've had tractors and lorries go by, canters in a group with out any fuss, goes first or last, he is still a young horse so may look at the odd thing but he is very sensible and nicely forward going, would be great on the hunting field.

He is so honest and genuine to ride, always ridden in a snaffle as not strong, his schooling is very basic but if yo want a nice sort to put your own stamp on he would be great, although a cob, he moves really well and is nicwly forward with good brakes, would do a dressage test in time

Showing a very genuine jump, not spooky, has been XC training previously.

Sadly Thomas is for sale on behalf of client, he was bought for a very novice husband and although not showed any bad behaviour they haven't clicked, possibly due to him being younger than the horse he was use too. Owners very happy to talk as would like to see him go on to have lots of fun

Passed a 2 stage vetting November 2016,

**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

  • Bombproof, very sensible and so easy to do
  • Superb hunter!!

George (Go Go) is an amazing hunter who goes first or last, he'd look after a novice rider on there first days hunting or he keeps up at the front jumping what ever is in his way! He's jumped gates, rails, ditches and hedges and he's never stopped. He only ever goes in snaffle and never pulls - you can pretty much ride ride him on the buckle all day! He stands at the meet even when dressed as Reindeer for Boxing Day meet in the middle of Droitwich! The crowds nor cars nor hound bother him at all!

George would be a perfect family pony (current rider is 5ft10/12st). He would happily hack out with Mum/Dad all week then go to PC with child at weekends. He's very safe but with a more confident rider he ups his game and he will have a go at anything! He's hacked out by all the family here, never spooks, great in traffic and will trott and pop the odd log in gateways etc
He hacks out alone or in company, leads horses or he can be lead.

George is jumping 85cm tracks with ease, he's not phased by fillers and he's taken a novice rider around a round of show jumps and cross country including skinnies and water etc
He's very soft in the mouth and works consistently in an outline, he definitely wouldn't look out of place in a show ring or doing pure dressage - But he does love jumping!!

George is so easy to do from the ground, he lives in or out. He's great for the farrier (only recently had back shoes on). Very good to travel alone or in company and good to clip just can be figity when clipping feathers!

George is an absolute pleasure to have around and only for sale due to the Eventing season approaching and over stocked! He woud suit any child or small adult and he will try to please in everything he does, he is at his happiest on the hunting field and he would love a competitive home where he talent won't be wasted. He's really is a true gent and one not too miss!!

  • For light hacking and companion

Wanted on permanent loan a quiet & sensible semi-retired 16HH+ gelding for light hacking and companion. No full TBs thank you.

It is very difficult to sum up the type of horse I am looking for and do not want to exclude anybody but he would be in his 20's and maybe a ID/Warmblood/TBx

He must be 100% safe in traffic, to hack alone and in company, open spaces, not spooky and have good field and stable manners.

I am 60yrs old and a capable rider but have never been very confident; hence my new best friend must be safe and kind.

I have kept horses at home for over 34 years and look after them myself.

Please email me in the first instance if you think you have what I am looking for. straker.barnes@btinternet.com

Thank you Wendy (Hampshire)

  • Would make a lovely eventer

Bentley has been in the same home since he was a 3yro, sad sale due to change of circumstances.
He has competed in hunter trials, ODEs and dressage. Loves jumping and can be quite forward at times but will always stop when you ask, and is always snaffle mouthed. Not silly or strong in big open spaces. Absolutely beautiful paces on the flat but would need to get back into schooling again as he hasn't done it properly in a while.

He is good to shoe, box, clip, catch etc. Hacks alone and in company and is 100% in traffic. Bentley is lovely to handle on the ground and has a lovely character. Would suit someone wanting to produce something to event or for someone to go out and have fun on! He is not suitable for a novice and would not suit a nervous rider.


Safe sane sensible confidence giver with a superb temperament

Troy is a horse in a million, safe, sane, sensible and absolutely stunning with a temperament to die for! Rock solid police type! He is an impressive Irish weight carrying cob with a lot of bone and substance. He has excellent conformation, clean limbs and is blemish free. He would carry a substantial amount of weight.

Troy is a real school master who works very nicely in the school, he has 3 correct balanced paces and works in a lovely outline. He has super elastic paces, with a floaty trot and a very comfortable canter. He is a lovely medium speed who is nicely off the aids but not at all sharp. He works very well between hand and leg and gives a nice feel in the contact. He has been ridden by a range of different riders including a 15 year old girl. He will do more for an experienced rider and less for a lesser rider. He is very quiet and safe to ride and really fills his rider with confidence. He has a lovely willing attitude towards his work and really aims to please in whatever he does. He has done some unaffiliated preliminary dressage with successful scores in the high 60's. He would definitely progress through the levels.

Troy loves to jump and makes a good shape over a fence. He is a very honest and genuine type and has never refused or ran out. He has jumped around 1m courses with ease filling his rider with confidence. He happily jumps over coloured fillers without looking at them. He looks after his rider when jumping and will happily trot over a small cross pole. He jumps in a lovely rhythm and doesn't rush into his jumps or get strong or silly. He would be the ideal horse to teach someone who to jump as he is a very forgiving boy who loves to work.

Troy is amazing at cross country; he gives you a brilliant feel and remains very safe, easy and sensible. He jumps everything asked of him including hedges, ditches, walls, timbers, coffins, water complexes etc. He gives his rider so much fun and confidence. He has been cross country schooling with a 1year old in just a snaffle jumping 3ft6 fences and giving her the best day out. He would make a super low level eventer as he is great at all 3 phases.

Troy has hunted 4 seasons in Ireland with a gentleman where he was quiet, mannerly and bold over jumps. He has also hunted with the Fitzwiliam hunt on Xmas eve with a 15 year old girl. He stands rock solid at the meet and gives a very enjoyable ride. He is point and aim over jumps so you can really trust him to jump everything. He would make someone a wonderful hunter.

Troy is a superb hack, he doesn't bat an eyelid at anything and is often used to give less experienced horses a lead. He happily hacks out alone and in company. He is excellent in traffic, he regularly crossing a busy 'a' road roundabout and will patiently wait until it is clear to cross and isn't fazed by lorries passing him etc. He is great in open spaces and regularity hacks out in a group of horses and will canter in any order without getting strong or fizzy. He has been on long 10 mile hacks, where he has crossed rivers, jumped logs, crossed bridges etc all in a calm manner. He really is so chilled out and you can really relax on him and enjoy yourself. He would be a great pleasure horse to have hours on fun with.

Troy has a temperament to die for, he is very quiet to handle with manners to burn. He is a very easy boy to have around, he is excellent in all ways to handle, and is regularity handled safely by children. He loves people and will stand for hours to be brushed and pampered. He leads like a dog and isn't fazed by anything. He happily lives in or out and mixes very well with mares and geldings. He is the sort of horse that helps other horses settle on a yard as he is such a calming influence.

Troy must go to a 10* home where he will be loved and cherished. He would make an excellent family horse for everyone to enjoy as he’s so easy. He would also make a cracking riding club alrounder as he is good at all disciplines. He would also be well suited to hunting and hacking. He really has so much to offer someone and will bring your confidence on no end.

This is a very sad sale of our brilliant allrounder that is very hard to come across! A 10* home is a must. Videos and more pictures available on request.
