  • A talented young man with a very bright future

This stunning boy oozes class and ability. He was purchased solely for his paces in the hope he would become a dressage superstar. That he most certainly could but he has far too much jump and love for the job that it would be a complete waste for him not to be used in all spheres.

Three very flashy paces on the flat with a big, uphill canter to die for. Very well balanced on the flat with a good, established way of going.

Breeze's jumping speaks for itself. This boy is keen, careful and bold. His little face lights up and ears prick at the sight of a fence. He has been out and about show jumping, winning a strong BS class the other week. Due for some more BS this weekend. We have had Breeze training over WH and indoor XC fences as well as XC training. Nothing phases him a all.

An absolute star to hack alone or in company. Good to hack in traffic etc. A gent to work with in and around the stable. Good with farrier, good to clip, travels in lorry or trailer and happy to stand there all day.

This outstanding connie is a type very hard to find. He is straight and easy to ride and I do believe he has all the credentials to go very far. These types with the movement and jump he has, come very few and far between. A talented young man with a very bright future.

Tynporth Joanna (Flo-Jo) stands out from the crowd, is an incredibly flashy mover that oozes quality.

I have owned her since she was 2 and has been produced professionally at home. She is by Eyarth Troy the international Show Pony so has excellent breeding.

She has a correct conformation, moves straight free and extravagantly and catches everyone's eye. FloJo has constant success in showing and dressage always achieving 65% or above. She would also make a fabulous BYRDS pony, Ridden M&M or Ridden Show Hunter pony. She has done a small amount of jumping and has a lovely tidy jump.

She is easy to box, farrier, clipping and hacking and very well behaved at shows. Rides in Snaffle or Pelham.

This pony needs a 5* home with a young talented rider to take her to the top.

  • All the attributes that will get her far in any discipline.
  • Fantastic breeding which proves that she is bred to be a highly competitive horse.

Glenlo Sally is a 5yo 15hh Connemara mare who is perfect in every way. She has the scope, ability and the brain to go far in any sphere. She is amazing with absolutely everything and she always works to please her rider and puts 110% into everything! As well as having all the attributes needed to go far this mare has great breeding and proven relatives who have competed Internationally in Eventing and working hunter. Sally is well established on the flat and is always improving and learning new things. Three lovely, striking paces and a phenomenal gallop - she's faster than the big horses! She jumps for fun and has massive scope, will jump anything and off any stride - fillers, grids, skinnies, spreads, uprights. A very willing horse who is extremely talented and hard to find.

She was bought as a yearling from Ireland and I have known her since then. I backed Sally last year and we bought her in the summer. Her third time jumping was at a xcountry facility where she jumped everything - ditches, water, steps, skinnies, arrow heads - she is so quick to learn and takes everything in her stride.

After recently being backed I took her to her first show. Competed in the M & M flat class where she came in 2nd in a big field of ponies. We then continued to the Championship of this class and she won Reserve Champion against a competitive field of ponies. In the M&M Working Hunter she did a lovely clear round and beautiful show to come 2nd and Reserve Champion in the Championships of this class. We took her into the Supreme Championships and again she performed wonderfully and got pulled in Reserve Supreme Champion of the whole show. All of the judges loved her and wanted to take her home which is no surprise! She won her first dressage test scoring 67.2%. Behaved impeccably at her first BE at Eden Valley scoring a 24 dressage bringing home a 10th. 9th out of a class of 56 competing in an indoor xcountry. Was recently placed 6th after scoring 68.1% in a dressage test and scored two 70+% marks when doing the BE96 and BE106 dressage tests. I hunted her one day with the Duke of Buccleuch and she was a dream. She stood when asked, was happy to leave the pack, galloped with the pack and jumped like a pro. Jumped everything I asked her to including a hedge which was 1.20m+.

Sally has absolutely no vices. She is easy in every single way. Her willing attitude and fantastic abilities is what makes her every mothers dream. She will excel in any discipline whether it's pony club, hunting, eventing or a bit of anything, she is sure to impress.

She can be turned out and hacked by herself, with mares or geldings. Has been clipped, shod all round and loads easy either on her own or with another horse. Vaccinations up to date and micro chipped.

I honestly cannot say enough about this mare. She really is one of a kind and is just prefect in every way.

Bow has done PC , XC and Dressage, always being placed and bringing home rosettes .Bow is ridden in a snaffle at all time at home and at shows.

Hacking, Bow can go out happily alone with no fuss or she can go with company first or last. she has even been used to lead nervous horses.

Bow is Barefoot she has recently been trimmed, plus up to date with dentist and vacs she has a pp and micro chipped.

I know Bow's entire history, she has never been sick or sorry.

She loads and travels well, coming off the box quietly. Bow is well mannered she has never barged, bolted or kicked or bitten..

Bow has three balanced paces, she is very well schooled.

Bow is my little girls best friend, so please only inquire is you are serious, we do not want viewings for a free ride!!

Lovely dales type pony, reluctant sale now, due to lack of time and change of circumstances. Della is a very pretty pony, black with one white hind foot and a small white star.

She has always lived out and is unshod with excellent feet and conformation and 3 correct paces. She has been started and is good with the farrier and dentist, loading and the lorry. She has seen cars, tractors, bicycles, lives with sheep, cows, geese and dogs.

We have done lots of work in hand and spook busting with no issues. She lunges and has been long reined and under saddle and sat on in the school. We have free jumped her and she proved to be careful and clever.

Della is a sensitive soul and thrives on attention and a one to one relationship. She is now ready to be brought on by an experienced person who will further her education, let her see a bit of the world, and enable her to excel in her owners chosen sphere.

Ideally looking for quiet knowledgeable natural horsemanship home where someone will make a long term commitment to this very straightforward little mare.

Up to date with immunisations and worming. WOW saddle available separately.

**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
