Bought as a 5yo, Kingston David has been home produced & progressed through the levels together with my daughter giving her the confidence to move steadily from 90cm all the way up to CCI 1* for Ponies.

Brave & bold but extremely careful across the country with an exceptional jump, he finishes within the time at his ease.

3 loose paces and well established in all required movements for FEI tests. Careful show jumper with great scope.

He has a vast experience for a young pony & there is a much more to come with a very bright future ahead.

Eye catching & regularly admired Kingston David is a clever, safe, straightforward pony with no vices.

Recently travelled from Ireland to France to compete at Haras du Pin, taking it all in his stride. Very talented Pony that will take a competitive rider to the top level.

Sad sale of much loved pony as rider moving on to horses. 5 star home required for top pony.

Serious enquiries only.

This much loved pony is very sadly for sale.

Homer is the ultimate schoolmaster and in the last 3 years he has introduced my daughter to British Eventing. In this time, he has never had a cross country fault and very rarely touches a pole.

This pony is a jumping with style winning machine at both NSEA and BE competitions. He did 6 BE JWS / JT qualifiers in 2017 and never was out of the top 3. He has won numerous NSEA qualifiers in both show jumping and in JWS getting to the champs for 3 consecutive years. He has competed at the area show jumping and eventing qualifiers qualifying for the championships.

Homer is a very easy pony to look after, 100% to shoe, load and very good in heavy farm traffic.

This pony is seeking a 5* home with a competitive jockey so he can carry on doing what he loves.

Whiteleaze It's a Secret (Alfred), 2013, bay gelding 13hh. British Riding Pony by Cusop Dimension out of Hammonds Hidden Secret by Hever Olympic.

He was bought unbroken by my 12 year old son as a summer project to back and hopefully pony race in the New Year. However, son has grown far too quickly.

Freddie is forward going but sensible. Seen poles and started a bit of basic jumping. Been to clear round jumping indoors and took everything in his stride.

Good with vet and farrier.

Lots of jump when tried over a fence loose. This pony will be a star whether racing, jumping, hunting, games or general pony club but he is still only 4 and not yet establised so no novices please.

Pontoon Gold is a beautiful bay 3 year old filly that is ready and waiting to be brought on to the next step in her career. She is very well made lovely bone and has the most wonderful tempermant.

She is bay with no white and a beautiful black mane and tail.

She is out of the same dam as the multiple show winner Pontoon Lad who among other accolades won the ridden classes at the RDS and Clifden. I have no doubt if she falls into the right hands she will also prove just as successful.

This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire a filly that you can bring on yourself and put your stamp on.

**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
