  • Ultimate little fun horse who could turn her hoof to anything!
  • Absolutely cracking type that is hard to find

Super little fun forward going horse.She is an 8yo who stands at 15 hands

Absolutely cracking type that is hard to find.There is plenty of her so takes up the leg,would take a tall person.

She has been with the same home for several years where she has been ridden several members of the family.She has a super step and works very nicely on the flat,has a super comfy canter,potential to go far BD

Careful neat jump and is really genuine to her fences.She has done a little bit of everything ridden and also is broken to harness and has plenty of driving under her belt (see photos).

She has a fabulous temperament and is really kind natured.Nicely forward and responsive but lovely light snaffle mouth

Would do any job,she has lots of untapped talent.Plenty of  jump to BE/BS or would just make a super fun top class PC/RC horse.She is lots of fun and has plenty to give.

**She hacks out alone and in company,perfect with cars/vans/bicycles but needs more confidence with heavy traffic and farm machinery,has not seen a great deal of traffic without blinkers - This is why she is the price she is and not 5k - Not dangerous but needs a confident rider or someone that hacks off road or doesn't meet a great deal of traffic**

15.2 (LHC), 14 years old bay gelding. Hugo is a prolific winner having qualified HOYS and RI pretty much every year since a 4 year old and winning at the RI in previous years - his records speaks for itself.

He is a pleasure to do in all ways and has been an absolute gentleman teaching me the ropes in my first year of RI / HOYS qualifiers and on a plaited pony. He has been shown this year as an intermediate show hunter and small riding horse qualifying for RI in both sections. Has also been shown and qualified as a small hunter and isrt before.

Excellent to hack, clip, shoe, trim, load etc etc.

Lots of photos available on request, he is entered at some shows so would like to keep him until these have finish so he will be available towards the end of the season.

He will only go to the right home and only 10* homes need apply. Please only contact if genuinely interested as this isn't an easy sale of a much loved horse.

  • Gelding
  • 11 years
  • 14.2 hands
  • Always snaffle mouth
  • Excellent hunter
  • Lovely laid back temperamnet

For sale on behalf of a client. Meet the absolutely adoreable Robin, he is a 14.2hh 11yo gelding. Good box, farrier, catch, traffic, Robin is a real sweet heart who doesn't have a nasty bone in him, he is very sweet to handle and have around, happy to live out or come in and gets on with all other horses in the field. Stands quietly to be groomed, tacked up and mounted, he has a loving cuddly way about him with a stunning head and kind eye. He is fully vaccinated, regularly wormed, teeth, back etc and currently bare foot.

He has stunning paces and really flicks his toes in trot, will drop his head into an eye catching outline when asked but just as happy on a loose rein, he is a forward going type with extravagent paces, with more schooling put in he really could do very well any level dressage. He is very nice to sit on, has good bone and a good shoulder, rides much bigger than he measures.

He has a fab jump, not at all spooky over fillers, planks and xc fences, popping upto 90cm for fun, would be amazing as a RC or PC all rounder, he has competed at local level and always very good. Robin is amazing to hack out with others and happy to tuck in or go last when cantering in a group, he lacks in confidence when hacking alone or going in front, he has been allowed to go behind when hes not sure, we can hack him out alone with spurs on and he is fine but woudn't suit some one wanting a confidence giver out hacking as he will need some work in the hacking alone area, this is reflected in his price, he does not spin, rear bolt etc you just need to use a lot of leg but have found using spurs more successful to send him forward.

He is perfect in all heavy traffic and has hunted on several occasions previously in which he was an absolute saint, doesn't get silly or over excited and proved to be the perfect hunter. Due to his lack in confidence he needs a confident firm rider.

  • Loves to jump
  • Enjoys to hack out

Good to do in all ways, vet, farrier etc absolutely no vices what so ever he will hack past the biggest of lorries. 

Up to date with vaccs teeth feet back etc

Kasper's looks are always commented on, the pictures don't do him justice. He would excel in showing or working hunter.

Kasper works nicely on the flat and was recently pulled 3rd out of 7 in a local prelim test after not being out for months due to lack of time. He also enjoys his jumping.

He can be nervous at times,  for example, if you move too fast in the stable. He can be 'looky' hacking (has never taken this to napping) so he does require a patient and quiet rider/ handler, therefore not suitable for a child, he would suit a competent teenager or small adult.

In no hurry to sell.

Gerry is a 15hh Connemara gelding. He works very well on the flat with three correct, balanced paces. He has a scopey jump and will happily pop a course of showjumps. He has also been cross country schooling.

Gerry is a pleasure to deal with, both ridden and on the ground. He hacks out alone and in company, he's never strong or silly but does need a confident rider to hack out alone as he lacks confidence. Snaffle mouthed at all times.

Gerry would make a fantastic pony club allrounder or mother / daughter share.

5* home only for this lovely little horse where he can fulfil his potential.

We are looking for:

A pony suitable for myself and my daughter to share. 13.1hh - 14.2hh depending on breed and build. I'm an experienced horse owner/rider, and my 10yr old daughter is novice. The pony needs to be bomb proof with no vices and easy to do. Quiet but forward going is ok but fizzy or strong is not. We mainly ride along the river bank and through fields, and I can't have it bombing off with my daughter while I'm on foot! Also the pony MUST hack out alone as well as in company, no napping....been there, done that. A pony that my daughter can progress on (and I can also take out when she isn't looking!). She's cantering now but is hoping to do various activities next year.

We are lucky enough to have a cottage in the grounds of a country estate which is also a livery yard, the pony will be only a few yards from the front door! Check out where we live at www.redhouse.orpheusweb.co.uk OR google Red House Estate, York.

Happy to loan or buy (£500 - £1000)

PS The pony's age and looks aren't important but a sweet nature is

Rising 5 year old mare. This mare is a true super star and I can't talk highly enough about her. She is genuine and honest and straight forward. She is ridden by everyone and I mean everyone people that have had there confidence shattered - professional and everyone loves her and gets off with a smile.

We have hacked for miles around 1000 of acres of bridleways river crossings- motorway bridges and major main roads. Even with small 10 year old riders.

Has done pony club rallies attended showjumping and cross country. Always given lots of positive and delightful comments how calm and scopey and amazing this mare is.

We have done lots of local competitions too always in the ribbons. My rider is 12 and a small 12 as you can see from pictures she gets on amazing with her and loves every aspect of her from her great jump to her lovely temperament.

We have done lots with this mare to give her the best start in life, she has been to fun rides at Cotswolds and hunt rides, winning eventathon at lazy acres - cross county schooling at many venues, showjumping at allens hill. Are just a few but all with atmosphere but keeping it calm and inviting for a youngster. Was invited to do area for pony club also. Videos available on request.

This mare is uncomplicated and such a delight. Well schooled and ready for a fun pony club home. She would look amazing on the hunting field this season seen hounds very briefly last season and enjoyed herself.

Jumping 90cm courses out and about always in a snaffle. Loves all the county shows we have been too this season the judges love her.

100% to do hacking, catching, shoeing, boxing.

This mare would love a caring home and the very best which is what she deserves.

SUPER COB! This lovely chap the type of cob we only come across every so often, he is the most willing, genuine, kind person you could ever wish to meet and tries his hardest in whatever you ask of him while remaining level headed and sensible.

Captain will go on to do any job and is a real "Jack of all trades " type. He will make a smashing PC or RC cob, hunter, happy hacker, you name it he will have a go and do his best to please.  He works exceptionally well for a cob in the school, he has a nice mouth, is nicely off the leg and can be picked up by a better rider or will go quietly for a novice, more than capable of going straight out at prelim dressage.

 He enjoys his jumping and although he hasn't done a lot of it, is very happy to learn and has a scopey jump, uses himself correctly and has jumped all our coloured and natural fences very well. His temperament is so good that he has been taken to a big local show with one of our novice child helpers, who did clear round on him and took him in the coloured class, coming home with rosettes.

He has been on hound exercise with us and very well behaved, will be super fun out hunting this season. He is not fussed by lots going on, happy to stand on the lorry and really enjoys days out.

Captain hacks out very well alone and in company, he's not spooky or silly and has been brilliant in all traffic met to date. He is kind to handle, good to clip, catch, box, to shoe he was a little nervous as we don't think he had had shoes before, but with a kind word and a handful of nuts soon settled. I really can't rate this cob enough, he will be your best friend and try anything!
