  • Has plenty of substance to do either M&M or SHP

A homebred 4 year old mare that has had a successful in hand career even though only lightly shown and is now ready to be broken and prove herself under saddle.

We think she will make a fabulous lead rein, or with her biddable temperament a first ridden pony.  She has plenty of substance to do either M&M or SHP. 

She is easy to do in all ways and is totally unspoilt and has never been sick or sorry and no laminitis. 

It has been a very hard decision to sell but we feel she is totally wasted here as we are not breeding Section A's for the foreseeable future and she is far too good to be a 'field ornament'. 

A 5* home is our priority for her.  She is currently living out but will be 'tidied' up this weekend. Photo is of her as a 2 year old.

  • The most pleasurable pony we have ever had the honour of owning
  • A great confidence giver / schoolmaster
  • Childs best friend

Monalaw Constance  - We have been dreading writing this advert for our lovely pony Tiffany for a while now, but unfortunately kids leggrowing !!

Tiffany has been with us for four years and these really have been the best four years, she really is a pleasure to own.

We bought Tiffany for my 10 year old nervous daughter who is now a 14 year old confident rider, she has taught my children everything. My little 10 year old now rides her but she has her own pony and unfortunately as much as we would like too we cannot keep them all !!

My friends kids ride tiff , novice riders , experienced riders Tiffany will drop up and down the levels to suit the rider.

For the longtime we have had Tiffany we have done everything you can think of with her.

1) Hacking she hacks out alone or in company , she is 100% in traffic , tractors, bale wrappers anything.

2) You can take her in open fields she will sensibly walk, school nicely , or gallop she has never taken off in open spaces we have taken her to birkrigg doesn't stress when others leave, she has also been to the beach with previous owners.

3) Schooling, we ride Tiffany indoor/outdoor it doesn't make a difference, she never spooks doesn't make a difference what ability rider is on her, she can be ridden by herself or with lots of others an doesn't get fizzed up, she has got a forward going canter so in canter needs a jockey who knows how to ride . Although she has never bucked, reared or bolted.

4) Jumping we have not done a lot of jumping with Tiffany as my daughter prefers flat but she has taken her round cross country she jumped all the ditches, logs etc and has been lent to do a showjumping course on before.

5) Showing - we have done a lot of showing with Tiffany in hand and ridden, she is always impeccably behaved. Always in top placings at local/ county level . Excels in veteran classes and show pony. Never takes off even in the biggest of rings does not bother if horses come behind her or what is going on in the ring next door. We have done local shows with her but have also done bigger county shows such as

  • Westmorland county - 2nd BSPS mixed height open show pony then got reserve champion
  • Royal lancs - 4th BSPS mixed height open show pony/show hunter getting highest placed show pony l
  • Westmorland county - 3rd veteran
  • UDEC - winning all veteran classes/ best conditioned also getting in the top 5 every time
  • Show pony - reserve section champion

6) Dressage - Tiffanys old owners did lots of dressage with her we have done a few combined training with her and she has done very well.

7) Tiffany also has take part in Pony Club camp

Tiffany really is just a pleasurable pony to have around, she will only go to a 5 star home as she really has been an honour to own . I know most adverts say "very hard sale" but this really is a heartbreaking decision we have spent a long time making. She is 100% with farrier,vet,loading,bathing etc.

You can ride her in rain hail snow sunshine she is just the same nothing bothers her. She isn't bothered by cattlery/ dogs. She will turn out with mares or geldings.You can time her up at the box all day and she stands and you don't know even know she's there, she's a lovely natured pony and we will miss having her on the yard very much. She does not need riding every day, tack her up after months off she will be just the same. She is just such an honest pony.

As you can see by the large amount of photos Tiffany really is a very much loved pony , please no time wasters as my daughter is very upset about putting her favourite pony up for sale.

Registered Welsh Section C, approx 12.1hh 6 year old palomino mare.

Bea is a super pony, really pretty with a lovely character and personality.  She is very good on the lead rein both on foot and off another horse and my son has taken her out hacking, to pony club rallies, jumping shows etc.

She needs a confident rider on her when she is off the lead rein but only due to her being still a bit young and not done much yet.  As a second pony she would be a fantastic all round pony.

Last month I took her to a winter show where she won both the lead rein working hunter and the lead rein class.

She is good to clip, feet (barefoot), on roads (although we have mainly tractors around us!), she is a good doer and would live in or out, loads and travels well in a lorry or a trailer.

I would love her to go to a home where she will reach her full potential as she is a real sweetie.  She has huge potential and will go far in the right hands…

More photos/videos available.

Price negotiable to right home.

We are looking for a genuine pony for a nervous 6 year old and keen 3 year old

No sweetitch, laminitis, skin problems or quirks! Good to handle, load, catch, farrier, clip and used to busy surroundings and all traffic

We have owned Duncan 3 years and in this time he has brought my 5 year old daughter off the lead rein and turned her into a beautiful confident rider.  Duncan aka Shilbrook Mr Holly is 11.2hh registered Welsh section A dapple pony. He has lovely breeding by Heniarth stud. With Sunwillow and Waxwing bloodlines. He is currently 10 years old.

He will happily participate in anything asked from , x country, handy pony, games, showing, hacking and hunting. He is always the same steady but responsive pony. He never gets excited or spooky and it is for this reason he has been an absolute diamond. He will happily trot over poles on or off the lead rein , but then happily jump 60 cm courses comfortably.

He is great in traffic, alone or in company, good to catch, clip, load, bath and travel. My daughters can fetch him from the field and have had endless fun riding him bareback in the paddock or leading him around and over jumps and generally playing with him. He has the most excellent temperament with children and other animals.

In his previous home he was successfully shown at Bsps level. We have competed at local level showing and working hunter and he always makes it into the championships , receiving brilliant comments on his suitability as a child’s pony.

We have endless videos and photos.

He is a very special pony and will be desperately missed !

**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
