This horse loves to compete and will jump whatever you put in front of him no matter what height. He is forward going, taking you to a fence but never pulls, refuses or runs out. He performs very well in dressage, show jumping and cross country and really enjoys his job.

He has been with a young girl for many years and has extremely low mileage for his age but with all the experience needed to compete or hack out in traffic.

He is easy to do and handle in every way.

Striking family horse


Ref #: 180173
  • Even forward paces
  • Neat, fluent jump
  • Sensible to hack alone or in company
  • Often placed unnafiliated show jumping and dressage
£3,950 neg
  • Thoroughbred
  • Chestnut
  • Gelding
  • 8 years
  • 16 hands
  • Even forward paces
  • Neat, fluent jump
  • Sensible to hack alone or in company
  • Often placed unnafiliated show jumping and dressage

Fun and elegant 8 year old for competitive teenager or small adult seeks loving home!

Ziggy is a quality lightweight leggy chestnut who looks and feels special. He loves to please and thoroughly enjoys jumping. He's forward, responsive and quick to learn.

Superb to hack in the heaviest of traffic alone and in company - great to accompany a less confident horse. Carries himself naturally on the bridle with fluent uphill paces.

Ziggy is sound, fit and well, and can be ridden without drama after having a few days off. He loves a cozy stable but likewise happily lives out. Great to box, travel, shoe, and clip.

Ziggy was left a rig when gelded (reflected in price), and whilst this could be rectified with a small procedure, I haven't done it because it does make him sparkle! All he does is whinny if there's a mare around that he likes. I cannot stress enough how lovely this horse is.

Open to vet and can be tried near Market Rasen.

  • A very striking and sweet natured gelding
  • Moves lovely on the flat with untapped potential

A very striking and sweet natured 16 hh ISH, 11 yo Dark Bay/Black gelding. Moves lovely on the flat with untapped potential, being placed in several unaffiliated Dressage competitions (with a young Uni sharer).

He has done some low level show jumping but he’s really not a natural jumper.

He has a great attitude and loves attention and fuss...he needs and deserves to be somebody’s love / focus and have a proper job. I have a couple of horses and he’s taken a slight back seat, he’s truly wasted.

A change in my personal circumstances has just highlighted my need to find him a new exciting, loving home and do right by him.

This boy does not have a bad bone in his body but is not a novice ride. He has a good measure of TB in him and occasional very short lived bouts of nervous energy, so he needs a reasonably savy rider. Saying that I’m an amateur rider pushing 50 and find him a great fun ride.

This is a very hard decision for me but sense prevails. No dealers please, I’m going to wait for the right home for this very special lad.

SAFE SANE AND SENSIBLE HUNTER WITH A GOOD JUMP

Ref #: 181200
  • 15.1hh(chunky type) to 16hh
  • Aged 7 to 11
  • Gelding or non mareish mare
  • 15.1hh(chunky type) to 16hh
  • Aged 7 to 11
  • Gelding or non mareish mare

15.1 (chunky type) to 16hh safe, sane sensible hunter with a really good jump for a 5'4", 9 stone lady. Ideally aged between 7 and 11 (though will consider sensible younger horses and low mileage older). Gelding or non mareish mare. Must be a really easy ride on the hunting field - no strong pullers - ideally a buckle end type, must not buck, rear, spin etc and take me (middle aged and slightly windy these days) safely in to a fence, without needing me to see a stride etc.

Our hunting is mainly timber hunt jumps with a few stone walls, mostly out of muddy fields or off tracks so something that will jump regardless of conditions underfoot. Must not be clingy, something I can do a gate on if everyone wants to jump something huge, that I can turn away from the field and go home on alone. And which is happy to live on its own or with just one other horse.

Must hack alone and in company and ride and lead, be excellent in all types of traffic, particularly agricultural and be sensible in open spaces. Needs to be easily managed on my own - good to load in a trailer, shoe, clip(would accept having to sedate if necessary). Would be great if this paragon would do some riding club, pleasure rides in the summer, but it is more important that it ticks the hunting box well.

A good hunting cob would be perfect - something that a lot of people would find boring is fine, am prepared to accept ugly, blemishes, never going to win a show class and some stable vices etc to find the right article.

Having bought this summer and taken someone's word on a horse (which pulls like a train and will not jump a stick in wet ground out hunting) I would like to see the horse hunt, ideally hunt it for a couple of hours myself at least, see hunting photographs and take up hunting references. I have a very decent budget for the perfect horse and am prepared to travel to try horses.

Can offer a home for life with another horse kept, on 1200 livestock farm, with excellent off road hacking.

Genuine safe and sensible horse / pony

5* kind and knowlegable home

Ref #: 181723
  • Quiet laid back 15hh to 16hh mare or gelding
  • For hacking, dressage and riding club
  • 5* family home
  • Quiet laid back 15hh to 16hh mare or gelding
  • For hacking, dressage and riding club
  • 5* family home

We are looking for a safe and sensible horse or pony to join our family for myself a mum (I'm 5f5 and 11 stone) to hack across open fields (must be safe and steady when cantering with another) and bridleways, local RC shows, go to the beach, school have the odd lesson and the ability to do a prelim dressage test. (I'm happy to school on if need be if it has the right willing attitude and temperament) but would prefer well schooled. Does not need to jump huge but the ability to jump small show jumps or xc sensibly would be an advantage.

We do not really hack on the roads only rural traffic but we do school alongside a very busy road where artic lorries and loud motorbikes pass so must be ok with this. Bold and brave out hacking alone away from others and also because it will be used to nanny my daughters young pony out hacking.

Absolutely non spooky in any way or nappy as we have to ride away from the others so no separation issues in any way (we have had issues with this in the past so it really needs to be a confident horse or pony and not worried or stressed by coming away from the others. They are kept at home and there are only my daughters 2 ponies here and this does not suit every horse and they can easily become attached to another.

We have dogs and sheep so would be great if ok with general family chaos!

Nothing nervous to handle in any way, good to do on the ground, friendly that likes attention, good to handle, bath, catch etc with a calm, straight forward & laid back attitude.

Sensible when taken out and about. Must travel ok in a trailer with another and load well.

Absolutely no napping/rearing/bucking or bolters please and also cannot cope with sweet itch as we live by the river and midges do not help.

Experienced, knowledgeable 5* home. He / she will want for nothing!! Can provide pc, instructor & vet references.

Shrewsbury Shropshire. Willing to travel up 1 1/2 hrs
