**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

We are looking for a small horse for my teenage daughter to BE and do Pony Club. She had a season competing at BE90 in 2015 on a experienced 14hh schoolmistress. We bought a new horse in January last year to take her on to BE100 but unfortunately due to injury, this horse is out of action for the foreseeable future, so we are looking for a lovely new horse that she can compete in all disciplines. We have been looking since September last year and are beginning to lose hope that we are ever going to find something suitable! My daughter is desperate to get back out and have some fun.

Our perfect horse would be:

  • Maximum 16hh
  • No younger than 7. Preferably 8 - 12 years old but would consider something older.
  • Sound, injury free and with no health issues.
  • Must have solid and consistent BE record up to at least BE100.
  • Must be a schoolmaster type, suitable for a teenager and forgiving of rider errors.
  • Completely safe on the ground and under saddle - no rearers, spinners, buckers etc.
  • Safe to hack out alone and in company and good in traffic.

If an overgrown Connemara meets the above criteria that would be perfect! We ABSOLUTELY want a schoolmaster. Please only get in touch if your horse meets our criteria. My daughter is a kind, sympathetic rider and will receive weekly training. Sensible budget and knowledgeable, caring 5* home awaits. References available. Please email me, or call 07778 921395. Very happy to travel for the right horse.

This is an amazing opportunity to own a pony of this calibre, Pip is a one in a million pony! She is an absolutely stunning pony who always aims to please and just loves to jump! She is one of the most willing, honest and genuine ponies you will come across and is one of the top open 15hh whp's in the country. She is very experienced schoolmistress and will jump round any HOYS or RI track, no matter how spooky or technical. Very sadly I am now out of class and feel that the best is yet to come from this amazing pony.

She is exceptionally well schooled on the flat, and is very correct, consistently scoring 70% + at BD Prelim and Novice and she is schooled up to elementary level. She produces a very well mannered show, often scoring a 9 or 10.

She is extremely talented in all 3 phases, and would be the perfect pony for the PC teams and BE. She is a dream on the flat, careful showjumping and very bold xc. She has been XC schooling up to BE100 level, totally unfazed by anything, jumping ditches, hedges, water, corners and skinnies with ease.

She lives on a busy yard and is used to dogs, children and farm machinery. Brilliant to hack, on farm rides and on the beach. Good to shoe, load, clip, bath, catch, no quirks or vices.

She is in full work and ready for the season ahead. A 10* loving home is a must for this wonderful pony. No timewasters, only genuine enquiries please.

  • I am looking for a horse that I can enjoy alongside my daughter with her pony
  • Must be established in it's flatwork with a lovely temperament
  • Excellent 5* experienced kind home awaits

I am looking for a horse / pony to be part of our family and to attend local Riding club shows/dressage and to hack and do fun rides on. Also regular lessons. I have had a break from riding for 3 years after selling my mare and although I can ride I am a bit rusty! My daughter is 11 and has her own pony and I am looking for a family friend to enjoy alongside her and her pony.

I like a horse that is responsive to my leg but nothing too sharp or forward please. Must be well schooled and established in it's flatwork with nice balanced paces. I am not a big jumper so jumping is not a necessity but if the horse/pony could it would be a bonus as potentially this could be the next step up for my daughter when she has outgrown her pony so mum daughter share.

A non spooky type, must be good in rural traffic and nothing fizzy or silly and able to be ridden in an open field away from others sensibly. No bucking/rearing/napping please.

Excellent temperament on the ground as my children like to help out. Also able to travel in a trailer and not have any separation issues if bought in from the field on it's own or taken out on own etc. Must also be sound.

I am 5f5 and 10 1/2 stone to give you an idea of size.

Experienced, knowledgeable, 5 star home to be kept at home with other ponies with stables and plenty of turnout.

Budget up to £3,000

Unfortunately after my horse of a lifetime has had to retire I am looking for my next best friend. I need my new friend to be a confidence giving type who will look after me. Mainly to be used for hacking but would love to try my hand at a bit of unaffiliated dressage eventually. Would also like to do some fun rides and adult training camp so he/she must be good to travel alone and not be phased or get fizzy going to different places.

Must be calm in open spaces and not Buck, rear, bolt or spin. They also must be good to shoe, clip, catch etc.

They will live with us on our small holding at home and will want for nothing and to the right horse can offer a home for life. I am beginning to think what I'm looking for doesn't exist and they broke the mould after my previous horse but if it does please don't hesitate to contact me.

I am a 20 year old rider, looking for a horse to fully loan.  I had a confidence knock last year after a bad fall and I'm looking for a horse for me to trust and have fun on!

I work for two 4* eventers based in Nantwich which means I will get top training and guidence every day.

I have had plenty experience with horses completing my level 3 diploma in equine management and equitation plus Stage 1 with Distinctions and my ride and road safety.

I have my own horse that has sadly had to be retired so I have plenty experience owning a horse and looking after one and I'm the kind to send pictures and updates all the time :)

Im looking for something to event and go competing on, It would be ideal to loan something that has been there done that that needs to go down a level.

I'm more experienced in the dressage scene but I'm keen to develope my jumping and XC!

Please message me for further enquiries and I'm open to phone calls for more detailed discussions.
