  • Loving 6* home

We are searching for Mr (or possibly Ms) Right for my 14-yr-old daughter to event. She is a confident, tall and well-trained teenager, who has experienced success in all areas with her beloved 15hh horse who, sadly, is now outgrown. Our dream horse will have the talent to take her to BE Novice this year (she has a season and a bit at BE100 under her belt) and hopefully into the U18 teams, as well as to compete for the PC and school in all disciplines, to hunt occasionally and to enjoy picnic rides on the Downs.

The horse would live with us at home, primarily out, and be trained by a 4* eventer, as well as have fun at every possible opportunity.

Must be a sensible type, as my daughter can't ride daily, especially in winter, and I only hack.

We would ideally like a short-coupled gelding, with some eventing and hunting experience - though if the right mare comes along...

Reasonable budget for the right horse.

Email or text preferred.

  • 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.

  • Must be quiet to handle as have young children

Hi, I am looking for what appears to be the impossible (!) - a sensible all rounder for hacking, dressage and riding club activities.

I would like something between 15.2 and 16hh and preferably between 5 and 9 years old although if absolutely perfect I would consider very marginally older. I am happy to look at mares or geldings, but if a mare, she must be non-sensitive and honest.

Very loving experienced family home awaiting. I am more than happy to bring on flat work if required but the horse must be non spooky and sensible to hack out alone and in company, good in all traffic and open spaces. I have access to plenty of top quality instruction so as long as safe, I can work on the schooling. I prefer irish types - Connie's, ID's, lightweight cob's or tb x's but am open to suggestion as long as the horse has a laid back temperament.

The horse must not need riding daily to stay sane and sensible as I have young children and a business also. I would like the horse to be happy to go out to clinics/shows/the beach/fun rides without fizzing up. I definitely would like to avoid anything that bucks, rears, jogs or bolts please. I have plenty of experience and am perfectly capable but want something a little less sharp as have too many responsibilities nowadays!

I have been looking for quite a while now and am really struggling to find a nice genuine all rounder so if you have anything you thing would suit, please do contact me. I offer a home for life and am happy to keep in touch if wanted.

Good budget available for the right horse. I am based in Gloucestershire and am happy to travel 1.5 hours in any direction. Thank you.

  • Experienced rider of 30 years but lacking in confidence
  • Irish draught or cob type preferred but open to other options

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.
