Handsome super safe true weightcarrier who will turn heads wherever he goes. This lovely boy is a fantastic super safe hack in the heaviest of traffic and is not phased by double decker buses, lorries, tractors or motorbikes. He will hack all day safely, with the most nervous rider on-board. He is happy to hack alone or in company and will lead or will follow without fuss.

He loves to work and is happy in the school and can be ridden on the buckle. He works in a soft round shape and never fails to turn heads wherever he goes. Sam has been ridden by riders of all ages and levels, from novice children to more experience less confident mature riders.

He likes to jump and has an impressive jump for a cob of his size. He can pop a course of 80/90cm with ease and is not bothered by filers, spooky jumps and water. He has done sponsored rides, SJ, hunting and XC.

He loves nothing more than a fuss and a hack around the village. He is super chilled in open spaces and is a snaffle mouth at all times. He is not strong and is never going to tank off in a group of other horses. He is also happy to lead from making him ideal for a mother to lead her children from.

He is a gem to do on the ground. He is very very quiet to handle and will stand for hours on end to be groomed and fussed. He is easy to lead to and from the field, good for the farrier, to clip and travel.

This genuine boy came from a long term family home of 6 years and a five star is imperative for this very genuine boy with a heart of gold. No vices and he is up to date with passport, teeth, vaccinations, worming and farrier.

Confidence Giving Family Horse

£4,250
  • Coloured
  • Gelding
  • 11 years
  • 16 hands
  • Super smart confidence giver
  • A super quiet, loving horse that is easy to do in everyway
  • Very well schooled and uncomplicated ride

This super smart confidence giving all-rounder needs no introductions. Galahad had been with the same loving family home for 7 years and his full history known since birth. He is a super quiet, loving horse that is easy to do in everyway.

Galahad is very soft in the mouth and is a very well schooled and uncomplicated ride. He is not at all sharp or silly and has a beautiful balanced canter that gives his rider oodles of confidence. He has taught a very novice man to ride and has been used to give lessons to less competent riders, therefore he is incredibly forgiving when the wrong aids are given making him perfect for a nervous or novice rider. He would never dream of bombing off and is a real laid back larry! He has taken part in local dressage competitions with success and thoroughly enjoys his jumping. Galahad will pop around a course of coloured fences without getting sharp and excitable, in a beautiful level rhythm. He has also taken part in sponsored rides, beach rides and XC. He is happy to hack out alone and in company and is very safe in the heaviest of traffic including buses, tractors, motorbikes, lorries and tipper trucks. Galahad would be a wonderful mother and daughter share as he is happy to do as little or as much as required. He is not the type of horse that requires riding everyday to keep sane, and he is not one to give you any nasty surprises.

On the ground Galahad has the most gentle kind quiet nature. He is like a big dog to handle. He will stand for hours to be brushed and often dozes off. He can be touched anywhere including his sheath and would never ever dream of being aggressive towards people or other horses. He mixes well in a heard of other horses and will not get clingy to other horses. He is easy to lead to and from the field and can be handled by the most inexperienced of handlers. He is happy to be stabled or equally happy living out.

Galahad will come with a folder from birth that will include photos from a foal and his full history. He is up to date with worming, farrier, vaccinations, equine chiropractor and dentist. Galahad has a passport and he is registered with The British Skewbald And Piebald Association.  He has never been sick or sorry and is open to any vet.

Twiggy is definitely not your normal cob!! She has the greatest attitude to all work! Does everything that is asked of her with such enthusiasm, her first time out at dressage she wins her class beating all posh warmbloods around her! With a cracking score of 74% her second outing doing dressage she won again ! She's now consistently placed every time out. She would easily do BD and be very successful.

I started jumping her properly end of last year and boy can she jump!! She went xcountry schooling and didn't look at a thing! Not even a scary ditch!

She's excellent out hacking in company or by herself, will load in a lorry or trailer and will happily stand on a lorry all day by herself if at a show, I can ride and lead off her and she can also be led, this mare is just so awesome I wish she was 16hh+ would definitely suit a mother/daughter share or competitive rider, very forward but never strong or silly, never mareish, can live in or out, currently bare foot but can have shoes, great to clip from head to toe as I don't like hairy horses!

A 5* home is top priority for this cracking talented mare, up to date with all vac's, teeth etc

  • 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

Here we have a fabulous boy with an even more fabulous temperament. Arthur is a kind and gentle boy who just loves fuss and attention. He happily stands to be groomed, washed and fussed over and is easy to deal with in all aspects of his daily care both in and out of the stable.

Horses of Arthurs size, build and temperament are nearly impossible to find these days. 

Arthur is a very quiet and straightforward ride, he works well in the school as well as being balanced through his paces and transitions. He would cater for all types of rider, he is quiet enough for a novice to ride on a loose rein yet will work in an outline with a more advanced rider.

Arthur will happily pop round a track of fences and he is not fazed by fillers.

Arthur is also a wonder hack both on the road and in open spaces. He will hack along on the buckle remaining calm and sensible. He has hunted, and is brave and bold over natural fences including ditches, banks and water.

He really is a special find and we would happily have a yard full of horses like Arthur

This boy is a fantastic hack forward going with great presence and enjoys his long hacks. He has great snaffle breaks. Can have a look at things but our mature lady rider just says give him a squeeze and off he goes. Safe in all traffic including large buses and farm machinery.

He goes out in rain, wind, snow and he is always a great hack. Jumping nicely pops a 80cm courses with our 12 year old rider, she loves to jump him as he is easy into a fence and jumps around in a nice rhythm.

He still needs more schooling but most levels of riders would be able to progress with him as he is an honest boy.

Good to do catch, stable, traffic, load etc

Such a great character on the ground and always gets the carrots as he loves his scratches and brushes. Such a straight forward boy. Easy to muck out in stable and catch brilliant temperament. Can leave for a few days and he is still a great hack.
