SD JUBILEE’S GIRL


Ref #: 167783
  • 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
  • Cob
  • Coloured
  • Mare

  • 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

  • Gelding

  • Lovely, smart cob who is a type very hard to find
  • Exciting show prospect

Lovely, smart cob who is a type very hard to find. This chap is quality enough to hold his own at county level CHAPS and BSPA as a coloured native type, yet also the type who will turn his hoof to any activity his owner may wish to participate in. He would be a real fun all rounder, he enjoys his jumping, is bold over coloured and natural poles.

Gomez is a lovely sort with a small, pretty head and a very kind eye. He is a real mover under saddle and it all comes from his shoulder, he won’t take a lot to produce on and he will be covered in rosettes, his canter is also very natural.

Gomez will also do well in the dressage arena with a bit more schooling. He has basic understanding of flat work, but is a clever, nicely forward thinking ride, who won't take a lot to have him going very well. He is not a ploddy kick a long cob and enjoys his work. We have taken him to his first show and he was 3rd in a strong coloured class and took the whole day in his stride. He really is an exciting prospect.

Good to hack alone or in company and has been brilliant in all traffic met to date, he is a pleasure to hack. Gomez has hunted with us and loved it, he was a polite but forward ride all day and jumped anything asked of him and didn't get too strong and behaved well with hounds.  He is happy to hack alone or in company. Gomez is very sweet in and out the stable, good to bath, box, shoe, catch and clip.

I really like this little chap and can’t wait to see him excel in his new home.

Lovely cob mare who only ever wants to please and has a super temperament. Hollie is a ride and drive and has spent the last few months happy hacking. Her owner feels that she would like to do more as has other commitments and no time to ride frequently. She hacks alone or in company and is good in traffic.

Hollie is schooling on well on the flat and is the type you can pick up or put down and ride on the buckle. She is a comfy ride and She is steady but nicely forward thinking and not stuffy. Hollie enjoys popping small fences and isn't spooky.

She would suit a riding school or training centre as is very forgiving. Easy to handle, box, feet trim (currently unshod with very hard, tough feet) catch, clip etc. a really nice person. She is happy to live in or out and is sweet in and out the stable.

**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

Loves to get on with his job, can be strong therefore needs an equivalent experienced rider, not a novice ride but a fun ride!
