  • We are an experienced home looking for a safe, sensible Cob for hacking
  • 5* permanent home offered to the right horse

We are an experienced home looking for a safe, sensible Cob for hacking. Looking for more of a kick along type for the children, but not totally dead to the leg, stuffy or exhausting to hack out. As one of the kids wants to do some cross poles a bit of PC. We are looking for a 14 HH (ish) leg at each corner type, so we don't grow out of him as a family

Must hack out on it own..no if's or buts, no calling out, no napping and must have been regularly taken on it's own hacking, and enjoy it!!. Must be good with Farm machinery out on the roads on it's own, tractors, lorries, and must stand up to let them pass on single track roads. Must stand up to be mounted at the block, no bucking, napping ,rearing. Non spooky type, but obviously all horses spook and have a look, but nothing that overreacts.

Must be good on the ground to lead, and good to handle. Would prefer one who enjoys lots of brushing pampering. This Cob is to be kept at home with the family and other horses.

Looking for a laid back gentle type. Not bothered if the Cob does not jump or is well schooled, we can do that over time . We are just looking for safety really for the family, one with a genuine nature. age between 4 and 12, we don't mind young if it is safe and sensible.

Must be open to 5 stage vetting with bloods. we are looking for a long term commitment with this Cob, not one to just keep for a summer then sell on when the hard work comes along!

  • Temperament to die for!
  • Huge potential for the show ring, a fabulous example of an old fashioned true Gypsy cob
  • Sure to excel in the show ring and be a real HOYS contender

This wonderful little girl has a temperament to die for, so friendly and loving she just loves to be fussed over, washed and groomed.  Totally honest and genuine we jumped on her bare back and she walked quietly in from the field!!

This mare has huge potential for the show ring, a fabulous example of an old fashioned true Gypsy cob.  Very evenly marked with tonnes of silky feather combined with her super straight movement she is sure to excel in the show ring and be a real HOYS contender.

Her schooling is very established and she would also do well in the Dressage arena and could happily ride a prelim test tomorrow.

Not only does this sweet mare have all of the above going for her she is also extremely quiet and easy to do, she would equally also make a wonderful happy hacker.  She pops a small fence so would happily pop a log out hacking or maybe Hunting!!! She is well behaved in wide open spaces as well as on the road and will happily hack both alone and in company.

She takes up the rider leg well, our rider in the video is 5’10 and he does not look, or feel big on her.

I have managed to trace her and she is by the legendary cob stallion SD Chief, who was sold to America,  now sadly this is not recorded in her passport however I’m sure if her new owner wished they could get her DNA tested if her breeding was important to them?

This really is a special girl and will make the perfect family horse, show horse or happy hacker

April is a 14hh, 5 year old, heavyweight gypsy cob. She is brilliant out hacking and isn’t fazed by anything. She will hack alone or in company and is excellent in heavy traffic.

She is very much a kick along ride and will happily plod around the school all day. She will walk, trot and canter in the school. April has restored my confidence and is good to do in all ways. She likes being pampered and is very friendly in the stable. I would trust her with tiny children. She doesn’t need to be ridden every day and is exactly the same after a break of several weeks.

She would suit happy hacking or just as a safe family friend. She is a beautiful girl and would do well at local shows.

She is ideal for novice riders and good to load, catch, clip and for the farrier. As she has good feet; she has never needed shoes. She is good with other horses and not marish.

She is up to date with the dentist, vaccinations and worming.

Thanks to April I am now ready to move onto a more forward going pony; hence reason for the sale. 5 star homes only please as this is a difficult decision.

**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
