Wanted: Horses

Genuine safe and sensible horse Wanted

5* kind and knowlegable home

Ref #: 181723
  • Quiet laid back non stressy/spooky 15hh to 16hh mare or gelding
  • For hacking (to nanny daughters young pony), dressage and riding club
  • 5* experienced family home
  • Quiet laid back non stressy/spooky 15hh to 16hh mare or gelding
  • For hacking (to nanny daughters young pony), dressage and riding club
  • 5* experienced family home

We are looking for a safe and sensible horse to join our family for myself a mum (I'm 5f5 and 11 stone) to hack across open fields (must be safe and steady when cantering with another) and bridleways, local RC shows, go to the beach, fun rides, school have the odd lesson and the ability to do a prelim dressage test. (I'm happy to school on if need be if it has the right willing attitude and temperament) but would prefer well schooled

Does not need to jump huge but the ability to jump small show jumps or xc school sensibly would be an advantage

We do not really hack on the roads only rural traffic but we do school alongside a very busy road where artic lorries and loud motorbikes pass so must be ok with this. Bold and brave out hacking alone away from others and also because it will be used to nanny my daughters young pony out hacking so must be completely non spooky and steady.

Absolutely not nappy as we have to ride away from the others so no separation issues in any way (we have had issues with this in the past so it really needs to be a confident horse or pony and not worried or stressed by coming away/being left from the others). They are kept at home and there are only my daughters 2 ponies here and this does not suit every horse and they can easily become attached to another.

We have dogs and sheep so would be great if ok with general family chaos!

Nothing nervous to handle in any way, good to do on the ground, friendly that likes attention, bath, catch etc with a calm, straight forward laid back attitude.

Sensible when taken out and about to new places. Must travel ok in a trailer with another and load well.

Absolutely no napping/rearing/bucking or bolters please and also cannot cope with sweet itch as we live by the river and midges do not help.

Experienced, knowledgeable 5* home. He / she will want for nothing!! Can provide pc, instructor & vet references

Shrewsbury Shropshire. Willing to travel up 1 1/2 hrs

We are looking for a first horse type for our 14 year old son, who, has had a sudden and shocking growth spurt and is looking unfairly big on his 14.1hh Connemara pony.

He loves his horse and will do everything for his horse independently, so, no quirks or stable / ground vices are a must.

He loves to have fun and jumping is his favourite discipline. He needs a horse that is light to the leg and responsive, without being hot or fizzy. He is coming off a schoolmaster, and we would love to find the same, just bigger if we could. He loves to ride in open fields and go for long canters... a horse that bolts or doesn't pull up when asked, is not an option for us.

He will do all PC & RC activities, school teams and hacking, hunting and fun, lots of variety.

The right horse will want for nothing and live at home, with us with lots of turn out, company of other geldings and large airy stables.

We have a sensible budget for a nice horse, but, we want to get this right. So, we are looking for a seller that wont mind if we visit two or three times.

  • Must be light off the leg, but have excellent brakes
  • Must be safe enough for Mum to hack, and good in all traffic
  • Must love to jump and be happy jumping 90cm+
