  • Perfect family pony
  • Bombproof, very sensible and so easy to do
  • Superb hunter!!
£5,950
  • Cob
  • Piebald
  • Gelding
  • 6 years
  • 14.3 hands
  • Perfect family pony
  • Bombproof, very sensible and so easy to do
  • Superb hunter!!

George (Go Go) is an amazing hunter who goes first or last, he'd look after a novice rider on there first days hunting or he keeps up at the front jumping what ever is in his way! He's jumped gates, rails, ditches and hedges and he's never stopped. He only ever goes in snaffle and never pulls - you can pretty much ride ride him on the buckle all day! He stands at the meet even when dressed as Reindeer for Boxing Day meet in the middle of Droitwich! The crowds nor cars nor hound bother him at all!

George would be a perfect family pony (current rider is 5ft10/12st). He would happily hack out with Mum/Dad all week then go to PC with child at weekends. He's very safe but with a more confident rider he ups his game and he will have a go at anything! He's hacked out by all the family here, never spooks, great in traffic and will trott and pop the odd log in gateways etc
He hacks out alone or in company, leads horses or he can be lead.

George is jumping 85cm tracks with ease, he's not phased by fillers and he's taken a novice rider around a round of show jumps and cross country including skinnies and water etc
He's very soft in the mouth and works consistently in an outline, he definitely wouldn't look out of place in a show ring or doing pure dressage - But he does love jumping!!

George is so easy to do from the ground, he lives in or out. He's great for the farrier (only recently had back shoes on). Very good to travel alone or in company and good to clip just can be figity when clipping feathers!

George is an absolute pleasure to have around and only for sale due to the Eventing season approaching and over stocked! He woud suit any child or small adult and he will try to please in everything he does, he is at his happiest on the hunting field and he would love a competitive home where he talent won't be wasted. He's really is a true gent and one not too miss!!

  • 16HH+ gelding
  • For light hacking and companion

Wanted on permanent loan a quiet & sensible semi-retired 16HH+ gelding for light hacking and companion. No full TBs thank you.

It is very difficult to sum up the type of horse I am looking for and do not want to exclude anybody but he would be in his 20's and maybe a ID/Warmblood/TBx

He must be 100% safe in traffic, to hack alone and in company, open spaces, not spooky and have good field and stable manners.

I am 60yrs old and a capable rider but have never been very confident; hence my new best friend must be safe and kind.

I have kept horses at home for over 34 years and look after them myself.

Please email me in the first instance if you think you have what I am looking for. straker.barnes@btinternet.com

Thank you Wendy (Hampshire)

Great mare that has been with us since a three year old. Has been used by a mature lady to hack around estate. She goes out 4-5 times a week and she is very straight forward. Doesn't spook spin or any naughtiness.

Simle but forward ride with brakes you don't need to kick kick every stride. Has been through the river Avon on several occasions and through the woods all with no problems and she througherly enjoys this.

We are a hunt yard and feel she needs a hacking home or a rider wanting to school her further to become a pony club pony. In arena she walk trots and canters and pops a small jump.

Has been hired but not at stage to jump rails or hedges and due to my pregnancy has been mainly ridden by one of our mature riders and a tall 12 year old girl.

She needs to go to an amazing home only as she is loved and all our riders here love her to peices.

  • Has done local dressage, jumping, clinics, horse agility, hunter trials, eventing and arena eventing
  • Placed in every event he has been to this year
  • Super easy to keep and a pleasure to own. Always tries to please, loved by everyone who meets him

This horse has tried his hoof at everything. Local dressage, show jumping, combined training, clinics, lessons, handy pony, horse agility, cross country, hunter trials, eventing, arena eventing, showing, hacking and even been on horsey holiday. Hacks alone and in small groups with sensible horses.

Been ridden by all the family and also been shared previously by a novice rider. Been used for complete beginners / non-riders to ride in the school, though out hacking I feel he would not suit a complete novice. Only selling as bought him to regain my confidence two years ago, he's done the job and I'm now looking to move on to something I can focus on competitive jumping with.

Super easy horse to keep. Good to catch, shoe, clip, load and travel in trailers and boxes and happy to stand at events on or off the box. Happily lives out with mares and/or geldings or on his own, also happy to be stabled. Can be left for weeks on end and then picked up again without changing and also ridden in all weather conditions day and night.

Up to date with vaccinations, dentist, farrier and recently had the back lady.

Would be a great fun horse for someone to take out and do things on as he really loves getting out and about. Really genuine horse who always tries for you with such a lovely character, everyone who meets him loves him and he will be sadly missed but he's now done the job he was bought for and needs to bring the same joy to someone else.

Hundreds of pictures and videos available on request.

Option that tack / rugs etc could be included in sale for a cost.
