I am looking for a 146 - 148cm Traditional Cob for RI and country level showing, BD Quest and TGCA dressage.

Non Marish Mare or gelding.

Must be excellent out hacking in open spaces and traffic both in company and alone. A real salt of the earth type that is easy to have around, something I can pop my very novice Mum on as and when needed when I hack my daughters mare out in the week during the dark nights and can be handled by anyone both at home and shows. Must travel well and be well behaved away at shows. If the pony is established jumping and is easy that would be a real bonus as my twelve year old daughter is wanting to do workers on something that’s more established in jumping than her own traditional is.

Absolutely no if buts or whatever’s just a real lovely sort that I know are hard to find. No health issues or vices. I do not have the time to bring youngsters on so nothing that’s newly broken please.

It mustn’t need riding everyday because during lambing time it’s just not possible. Maximum age 12 as I am wanting this to be my forever horse. In return the right pony will want for nothing and will be coming to an experienced loving home where it shall be kept on a private farm with my daughters mare and livestock.

Please send information, pictures, location and video.

Sensible budget for the right horse

  • Should you have something not quite ready for sale but feel it may suit please do let me know. I'm happy to wait for the right horse.

Buster is not your average Cob, he is forward thinking and easy to connect with a beautiful flowing trot that always catches the judges eye.

Won and placed at man unaffiliated dressage competitions, behaves beautifully out and at home.

He is a brilliant hack and is well behaved in traffic.

Buster has a lovely character and is good to catch, load, shoe and groom.

He is not a kick a long but has been ridden by novices before. Busters only issue is he had a bout of laminitis in May 2016.

Since this it has been managed and has never reoccurred but it is reflected in his price.

  • Huge feathers already

Martha of Pinehurst is a 10 month old traditional Blagdon gypsy cob filly.

She is a superb example of her breed with a lovely split mane and huge feathers already! She is well put together and moves beautifully.I bought Martha only a few months ago as a companion to our Shetland mare which she has done superbly but Martha needs a lot more one to one daily handling than I had first thought.

It would be a total waste for her to sit in a field as a companion for the rest of her life when she has so much to offer. Unfortunately I dont have the time required to spend with Martha at this time. She is a very sweet filly but lacks confidence.

She can be quite nervous until she knows you,this is purely due to lack of handling as she has improved hugely since I ve owned her.

Martha is registered with the Traditional Gypsy cob society and is eligible to show she is also microchipped ,wormed and had the farrier.

Martha has all the right qualities to excel in the show ring.


**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
