  • Has a lovely way of going and carries himself naturally in a lovely outline

Ember has been shown successfully as a ridden stallion as a 4 and 5-year-old with some very good results. But we made the decision to geld him last autumn as we felt he would make such a good child's pony. He was always the easiest pony a stallion and had such a lovely temperament.

Since he has been gelded he has had some time off and is now back in work and ready to show. He shows absolutely no stallion tendencies (he never did) and he is happily being turned out with mares and geldings.

He has a lovely way of going and carries himself naturally in a lovely outline. He has always been very sensible at the bigger shows like Royal Windsor and Royal International. Not phased by buzzy atmospheres. He has stayed away at shows.

Good to catch, bath clip etc. Hacks out alone or in company.

He is still owned by his breeder and now needs a child to bring him out in the childrens classes.

Can be seen and tried in Surrey. RH55PT

  • Up and running now and ready to begin his serious showing career.

Panther was bought as a future HOYS First Ridden pony for Poppy following a successful in-hand career with Colin Tibbey and is only for sale due to Poppy’s massive growth spurt this winter!

Pan is a truly stunning 5 yo Welsh A gelding who has presence, outstanding paces and the most beautiful head. 

He was professionally backed 12 months ago, turned away after gelding and then brought back into work.

 At all of his recent shows Pan has been placed in the top 3 as a First Ridden including several Firsts, Champion Mini and Overall Reserve Champion Ridden. 

Qualified for NPS M&M Novice FR Winter Championship 2017.

Pan requires little or no working in at shows and is looked after entirely by an 11 yo at home.

He loves hacking, is good in traffic and he has just started jumping which he loves.

 He is good to tack up, lead, catch, load, trim, bath and with the blacksmith.

Pan is up and running now and ready to begin his serious showing career now, he is definitely good enough for showing at top level either as a First Ridden or Lead Rein and has been home-produced to date.

Lots more photos available

Good homes only as he is a very special pony, priced to sell.

**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

  • Amazing movement, beautifully schooled
  • Total headturner

Fantastic opportunity to loan the most stunning Section B. We had a fantastic season with him last year winning nearly every class he was entered in. However, my daughter is now off the lead rein and he is not an off lr pony.

He is a competition pony, excelling as an older child's first ridden or junior ridden. He has competed in M & M HOYS qualifiers with previous owners only missing out on a ticket by a few places. He has also been campaigned with success as a SHP so has versatility.

He has the most amazing paces and would make a super BYRDS pony too. Jumping wise he has tremendous scope and has successfully competed SJ and WHP but he would need a confident jockey in this area.

He is a sensitive pony but easy to do, polite, good to box, catch, in traffic etc etc. Up to date with vaccs, teeth, back etc.

He is loved dearly and we are looking for a loving and experienced showing home ideally with a child in their last year or two of FR or someone wanting to do junior/open ridden. He would need to stay in East Anglia or perhaps further afield if the perfect loan home arose. Currently wintered off.

Please call or email in the first instance.

Deano is a fun and friendly fellow. He has previously competed in BD and he has 18 BD points. He is well established in all 3 paces and his lateral work. He is gaining confidence with his jumping and showing promise, he isn't phased by fillers and keeps a nice rhythm round a course.

Deano has been shown over the past 2 years, on LR and FR. He is very correct in his confirmation and has a very straight movement. Deano would strive in any discipline whether it be showing, workers, or dressage.

In the right hands he would make a super dressage/show pony.

Quality lead rein pony, able to hold its own at top level for super keen 5 year old girl. Must be straight moving. Would consider either native or Plaited. No kiddie killers please!

Must have manners to burn and be safe and straight forward in every way. She is very 'hands on' and likes to be involved (obviously under supervision) must be good in the stable.

Older pony that has been there and got the T-shirt and now looking for a slightly quieter life would be ideal, but also anything with an old head on younger shoulders would be desirable. To be alongside and possibly replace her beloved Dartmoor. Nothing that requires major working in, something that she can almost get straight on. Good to hack out/ in company and traffic.

Preferably a gelding.

Sensibly priced. Knowledgable home with other ponies awaits.

Heart-breaking sale of our beloved pony Sarum Phoenix who we have owned for 3 1/2 years. Phoenix is a lovely chunky chap with clean limbs and plenty of bone, well schooled with a rocking horse canter

He has competed in LR/FR/Junior & Open Ridden classes with great success, but he loves jumping too excelling in Cradle Stakes Classes with many wins and championships to his name.

His jump is clean, athletic with oodles of scope, he has SJ/XC beach rides and hacked out on open moors always bring my daughter back safely.

Phoenix is a versatile pony can be ridden bareback from the field, galloped on the beach, but will also be safe as a lead rein for the smallest of children.

He is 100% home produced and never over shown and at only 8 yrs old I'm sure his best is yet to come.

Phoenix is 100% in traffic / farrier / clip / box / bath / catch etc. Loves attention and is a really loveable character.

We are seeking a 5* home where phoenix be loved and he'll enjoy giving as much pleasure to a family as he has to us.

Devastating sale of our much loved 8 year old 12hh pedigree Dartmoor  gelding Teddy (Cayberry Predator) – the perfect first year first ridden pony. Sired by HOYS and Olympia winner  Shilstone Rocks Atlantic Gale and from the Cayberry Stud in North Yorkshire, we bought Teddy, from his breeder, as a little woolly beast for my nervous 6 year old , who wasn’t interested in riding, to get out of the field now and again and come for a hack with us if she wanted.  He has done far more than that. This pony has been an absolute superstar in all ways, has been her best friend and has made her love riding again to the extent that she has now moved on to a 2nd pony.

Before we got Teddy he had worked in a riding school, hacked out and done some in-hand and ridden showing including winning best gelding at the breed show. Since we have owned him Teddy has done all Pony Club activities (with York and Ainsty North) including games, pony camp, dressage and show jumping rallies, an Easter Egg hunt and musical rides! He is always perfectly behaved -  no matter what kind of shenanigans the other ponies get up to! Teddy loves hacking, he is virtually bomb proof and never spooky. He will go behind, middle or in front and is used to all sorts of traffic, farm vehicles, livestock etc. Lots of visiting friends come and borrow him to take their children out riding. We hack out in massive open spaces with my youngster and my eldest daughter’s BSJA ponies and even if they get a bit speedy little Teddy just stays in the same canter rhythm at the back. Even when my eldest daughter challenges the youngest to a race – he still maintains a steady canter and so always loses.  Teddy has done pleasure rides and hunt fun rides and has hunted with York and Ainsty North this season and thoroughly enjoyed himself. He wasn’t silly or strong just steady away, unphased by the hounds or huntsmen and jumped everything asked of him.

Teddy is a great jumper and makes a lovely shape over the jump. In showjumping my eldest daughter has popped him over a metre spread and some 85cm courses at home. She has also jumped him over 65cm competitively however he is more comfortable at 40-60cm which is my youngest daughter’s level. He never over jumps and so is perfect for little ones to learn on.  Teddy has also done a lot of cross-country. We have our own 45-75 course at home which he loves and he has jumped round the 50cm hunter trial course at Camp Hill and all of the cross country jumps at Escrick Park including the 85s. He will jump ditches and go through water. He will jump out of a trot or canter and rarely looks at a filler, arrowhead, skinny or water tray etc – in fact  he will pretty much jump anything – rustic or coloured.

We are not really a showing family but Teddy has done local shows and has always been placed in First Ridden, Small M & M, Bonny Pony and Tack and Turnout classes. He would be great for Working Hunter classes. No need to go in the ring with your child – Teddy will look after them! We have never done lead rein showing but I feel this is something he would excel at as he is very used to being shown in-hand and responds well to being led and voice commands. Teddy has just taken part in his first One Day Event with my now 7 year old (off lead) where he took first place in his class jumping clear over 12 show jumps and 12 testing cross country jumps (including a chair) finishing on his dressage score of 33.2!

Teddy is easy to handle in every way even for the smallest of children. My two get him in from the field, brush him and tack up all on their own and then take him riding/jumping/bareback riding whatever round the farm without me needing to supervise them as I trust the pony completely. They have even jumped him with both of them riding him – “you kick and I’ll steer” (see videos)! He has no vices and does not buck, bite, kick etc. Never sick or sorry. No laminitis or sweet itch. He is a good doer and easy to catch (comes to call and carries the lead rein in his mouth like a dog), groom (including letting little ones do his feet), bath, tack up, farrier (front shoes only), worm, clip (Teddy is currently fully clipped and trimmed for hunting, and even lets you clip his ears without hesitation).  He loads first time every time – no treats or bribes required. He is up to date with the dentist, worming, vaccinations. At the moment Teddy lives out and he is quite happy to come in for the night before a competition – however I do not think living in permanently would suit him.

So what are the negatives? Teddy can be a bit lazy with younger children. It can take a few kicks to get him from walk to trot and again to canter. Especially in a school and especially during the winter months when he has more time off. This hasn’t been a bad thing for us as my little girl always felt safe on him whilst still being able to progress with her riding. He will go up a gear with older children. Teddy also has a small bony lump on his face. This is not noticeable and is not visible when he wears his bridle (I only noticed it when the vet pointed it out). The lump was x-rayed and it was a tooth that had grown in at a slight angle – it will not cause any issues now or in the future, 

Teddy really is a fun affectionate family friend and is only for sale as there are no younger children in the family to pass him on to. My perfect home for him would bean older / younger sibling share or an nervous older child who needed to get their confidence. I have no doubt that Teddy would make an amazing lead rein pony but think he would enjoy the variety of doing a bit more. Teddy would also be perfect for progressing a little one from on lead to off lead. He would suit an all round/pony club home.

There are videos and photos of Teddy doing all the activities described above on You Tube – search Teddy Armstrong.

Teddy is sold with all his leather tack, his rugs, his personalised head collar, saddle cloth and door name plate. He will only be sold to a 5 star home and both ourselves and the breeder would like to stay in touch. £3000 for this super little guy. All enquiries initially via email please as I can’t always answer the phone abbyjo2004@yahoo.co.uk
