This is the most honest ad you will ever read ! Bought this sweetheart of a horse at the ripe old age of 50, as thought I'd try and learn to jump properly, this mare is the best teacher ever ! Trots to a fence never strong or scary but is forward going she does exactly what you ask of her. Had her 10 months and had the best fun ever !! However I've come off her twice recently my fault not hers and now I've lost it still jumping her as shes such a good girl but my hearts not in it so have come to the heartbreaking decision to sell but im not in any rush as would like her to have a home for life eg adult for Riding Club.

Previous owners write up;

Super Pony Club all-rounder, 14 year old mare.

Really knows and loves her job – 4 years with the same home and 3 years with her previous family undertaking all pony club activities including camps, rallies and residentials.

Has taken my daughter from her 12HH pony and built her confidence in competitions, competing in all disciplines. Consistently giving double clears, she has been on the Area teams for dressage and show jumping as well as competing for school teams in SJ and eventing – with lots of success and usually in the ribbons! She is a genuine all round Pony Club pony, great fun and a really sweet mare (never mare-ish).

Bold XC, will happily do ditches, water and steps. She never looks at fillers when showjumping and does a lovely rhythmical dressage test.

She is great to hack and very good in traffic as well as being easy to load, catch, clip and shoe. She will stand at a trailer all day and is a pleasure to take to shows. Fully vaccinated, wormed, teeth checked and is microchipped.

They broke the mould when they made this little horse !!!! Suitable as a first horse.

Timi is an angel to handle and would stand for hours getting groomed, he's never bargy and is always polite leading in and out of the field .

This little chap really can turn his hoof to anything and loves to please his jockey

Hunting: Timi has hunted in the UK and Ireland he's push button and you could have any1 riding him from 90 year old ladies to 9yo boys 

He adapts himself to his rider 

SJ: this is a little rosette machine he's brave and careful happily jumping round courses of 90cm.

XC: i would say all the hunting he has done has helped him be the honest little jumper that he is , Timi is happy jumping in and out of water as well as ditches and banks 

Dressage: Timi has done a few tests he moves nicely for a Connemara and works in a soft natural outline he's a dun so will always turn heads !!

Hacking : bombproof that's all I can say !!' 

This horse has no stable vices loads in lorry, trailer and is that friendly he would probably get in the back of your car.

Excellent with the farrier, vets trainers and leading experts welcome as I'm certain no1 will be able to pick fault in this lovely little horse!

HAZELROCK TREASURE is an absolute dream! He is QUIET and GENTLE to be around and is an easy ride with a SNAFFLE MOUTH. He rides in a beautiful shape and has lovely smooth paces.

He has WON in hands, riddens and working hunter classes as well as achieving placings at RDS and Clifden.

Only very lightly competed due to owner's work commitments and he deserves to be used to the best of his ability.

  • I am looking for a horse that I can enjoy alongside my daughter with her pony
  • Must be established in it's flatwork with a lovely temperament
  • 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.

Budget up to £3,000

  • Ideally between 5 - 9yrs
  • Ideally between 15.2hh - 16hh
  • Pref Irish types
  • 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.
