**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

Top Class Potential M&M First Ridden

Open Ridden / WHP / Cradle Stakes

Ref #: 164378
  • Fabulous trainable temperament
  • WP&CS Mini Champion
  • Absolutely top class Sec A with plenty of bone and excellent conformation
  • Welsh Section A
  • Grey
  • Gelding
  • 6 years
  • 120 cm
  • Fabulous trainable temperament
  • WP&CS Mini Champion
  • Absolutely top class Sec A with plenty of bone and excellent conformation

This pony has a fab future ahead of him and is available to loan only, as we wish to keep him for our grandchildren.

He has been lightly shown on the Lead Rein and in novice ridden classes, just a handful of times during 2016. He has behaved impeccably on the lead and even carried a drum major fancy dress outfit. He has been successfully introduced to the ring off the lead, with a lightweight adult.

He has just started doing pole work and happily will pop over a little jump. We are seeking either a home that will show him as a first ridden / junior ridden / open ridden or a home where he will progress with his jumping and move on to cradle stakes / M&M WHP. Possibly an active pony club home may also suit.

He is easy to do , loads and travels well, good to clip, with farrier and has hacked out on his own and in company. Good at shows needing very little working in. He has the potential to go right to the top with excellent bone and fabulous movement. Grandson is to small / young to do first ridden with him so he is totally wasted at present .

Any one interested in having him on loan please do get in touch for a chat. We are located near J24 of the M5 and pony could stay here with us free of charge if any one was local.

Loan home will be checked and we would expect to be kept informed of shows etc that pony attends.

Monty is a very sweet natured pony who loves people and fuss - Will stand for hours being brushed and plaited!

He is incredibly easy in every way. Good to load , clip and travel. He has no vices and has never been naughty . Monty is simply the type that wants to please

He has been a super talented showjumping pony but we can only guess he has had a twist in the field and injured himself as now he is not willing to jump

However he is healthy in every other way . He still enjoys being ridden and would suit a child wanting to walk and trot

He is very safe on hacks and will go in front or behind

Also he would make a great companion for another horse or pony as is very good natured and gets on with everyone

Monty is 13 years old

Marble has been with our family since a 3 year old and we had him broken and backed, now 8 years old. He is approx 11.2hh. He has been a lovely lead rein pony for my daughter and for sale / loan as she has moved on to another pony now. Taking part in all pony club activities including mini camp taking it all in his stride. He can however been cheeky but never nasty.

He is handsome and has lovely paces and so would make a great project pony for an older and more confident child who could bring him on and he would be competitive in any sphere.

He is not suitable as a first ridden pony, but good for companion, lead rein or an older and very confident child, mostly because he can need a firm hand from his leader or older child and has really only ever been a lead rein pony.

No known health issues, up to date with teeth and vaccinations. Not shod at present. Good doer and will live in or out.

An extremely sad sale of an ultimate child’s pony heis genuinely offered for sale due to no longer having a jockey to do him justice and is too good to be wasted without having a job to do

This pony could do anything as very easy totally straight forward and has excelled with everything he had done to date weather it being hunting jumping farm/beach rides dressage pony club working hunter cradle/nursery stakes ridden showing he does the lot.

Blue is a great confidence giver along with being a real all-rounder offering any child lots of fun pleasure and above all being safe whilst doing it

He is very well schooled and great on the lead rein although off the lead he would be classed more as a 2nd pony as still safe he is forward going and enjoys his work making him great for the more capable of riders

Alongside him being a total rosette machine at competitions he is also a child’s best friend who loves nothing more than being groomed fussed given cuddles and plenty of attention

He has the most beautiful head good conformation very smart paces along with all the attributes that I’m sure any lucky child would be proud to call him their own

He shall only be sold to the very best of homes as it is our priority to ensure that he is going to be cared for as well a fulfil his potential as schoolmaster/competition pony that he is
