Prince is a gorgeous French bred 14.2hh gentleman who at the age of 19 is ready to retire from competitions but is too happy and healthy to hang up his horseshoes.

Prince has been ridden by my now 13 year old daughter for the last two years. She is a competent rider but can lack confidence. He's been a loyal and kind companion to her taking her on hacks, PC rallies and SJ competitions, camps, beach rides, local and regional BSJA and NSEA events and has hunted with the South Notts. He is safe and sane in open spaces, traffic, tractors etc, very happy to go first or last and would make the perfect nanny to a young horse or ride and lead. He's been well managed and well schooled through his lifetime and like all ponies responds best to structure and routine. As easy as he is I'd prefer him to find a knowledgeable home with a competent rider.

He's currently kept at home, handled by children and pampered and preened on a regular basis. He's dog, young children and animal friendly and used to the chaos of a busy household. We'd like to keep him forever but the realities of time and expense mean that we'd love to find him a kind and caring home where he can be appreciated for the gentleman that he is and can continue to enjoy a happy life.

The need to facilitate a change in lifestyle for Prince occurred following a bout of lameness at Easter after a particular busy winter show season. On veterinary advice he took three months off and has been back in gentle work for three months. Our vet is happy to say that he is hacking sound. Prince had hind suspensory surgery several years ago (neurectomy). This does not cause him a problem but he's had an active and successful BSJA career which presents as general wear and tear on his ageing body (no different to us humans really). He does not look his age at all. We are in contact with his two previous owners and know his full history. All parties would be happy to act reference for him.

A 5* knowledgeable home is far more important than price for this lovely kind boy.

I am looking for a home for our childrens lovely pony, 11.1h shetland x. Ringo is 15 years old and we have had him for just over a year. In that time both my son and daughter have regular lessons both on and off the lead rein. He is good to hack out and I regulary ride and lead with him off my 16.2h horse. My son has taken him to rallies and a local hunter trial and he was very well behaved.

He is fantastic in the field and will happily graze on his own or with others. Ringo will live in or out.

Ringo is easy to catch, is good with the farrier, to be clipped etc. However he does have COPD, this has been investigated by vet and is easily managed and needs no medication. Only for sale as my son has grown out of him.

£1000 ono including tack and rugs. However home is more important than price. Please no time wasters, Ringo is a huge part of the family and is loved dearly by all of us. Please contact for more information/photos etc.

Perfect ride and lead / hack

Ref #: 177449
  • Good with small children
  • Brilliant ride and lead
  • Suitable for hacking, fun rides and is very well schooled
  • New Forest
  • Strawberry roan
  • Gelding
  • 17 years
  • 13.3 hands
  • Good with small children
  • Brilliant ride and lead
  • Suitable for hacking, fun rides and is very well schooled

Bandit has recently returned from his loan home of 3 years after being a ride and lead for a mother and her daughter - they now need a bigger version!

Bandit has the sweetest nature and is looking for a quiet life but is being wasted stood in the field! He would be suitable for hacking, fun rides and is very well schooled.

He would be perfect for a small adult wanting to ride and lead as he is still full of life and can be strong in open spaces however in the school he could teach a child to ride very well.

He is a pleasure to own and have around, he would be excellent with small children.

We have loved having Bandit back at home and I have had lots of fun on him but unfortunately we do not have the space. All homes will be vetted as it is very important to us he goes to the right family.

**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
