Fantastic child's pony

Shetland, Grey, Gelding, 6 years, 9 hands

'Talwrnisaf Idris' known as Thomas the Tank is a beautiful reg Shetland gelding standing at 35 inches.

Tank is a fantastic child's pony who can be caught, groomed, bathed and loaded safely by small children. He is fantastic to hack alone or in company and great with traffic, dogs and loud children etc 

Tank enjoys his jumping and gymkhana too and has won lots of rosettes at these. He is happy to be dragged about at home for hours on end too. Safe enough for the smallest tot to bounce around on.

He is NOT your typical cheeky Shetland and has never bitten bucked or bolted and is a laid back chap. He canters steady and jumps gently looking after his rider.

Tank is not spooky and will put up with our little boy jumping over and off him for hours and genuinely loves children and the attention.

He is wormed up to date and had his teeth and feet done recently too and is ready to have lots of fun with his next little rider.

Lots of photos and videos available at request

Shetland, Mare, 11 years

40 inch standard Shetland truly hard type to find 11year old mare.

Has taught my two girls to come off the lead rein in walk trot and canter safely.

Hacks out in heavy traffic not spooky alone or in company. 

Canters in big open spaces safely has a beautiful steady rocking horse canter so little ones can learn. 

This little lady has done everything with us and is truly a part of the family done Pony Club, pony games, mini jumping, pleasure rides, hunted, WHP. Shown at county level as a lead rein and small M&M off the lead rein getting places. Beach rides. 

She rides on the lunge as well so will teach little ones to get their balance before letting them off. 

Nice to handle / brush / travels well / never had laminitis.

Very hard to sell but both my girls have moved on to bigger ponies now.

M&M FYFR / FR (four legged nanny)
Add to my Stable

M&M FYFR / FR (four legged nanny)

To buy or would consider loan.

We are currently looking for what seems to be the “impossible pony” we are desperately seeking a confidence giving M&M FYFR type (or similar providing 110% willing and safe) A Dartmoor would be our first choice however other M&M’s definitely considered must be under 128cm & registered to breed society etc to run alongside our Dartmoor and be shared by two pony mad little girls one who is ready for FR and the other very much just off the lead would be LR at shows. (Decisions would be made of who contends with which pony depending on what would suit our new best friend!)

Both jockeys are lovely neat and quiet riders who respect their ponies we now need to find our next partner in crime to reach the next stepping stone and provide a child with confidence teaching them the ropes in the ring. Would be for showing at agricultural level to begin (Doesn’t have to be top county standard HOYS winner at this moment in time but would need to be eligible for county level shows and not look out of place) Pop a small fence , Hacking , beach rides and general confidence giving fun. Older ponies that have maybe been off the circuit a while is not a problem please no young ponies MUST already be educated and ready for a child! Something who has competed at top level and ready to drop down and also have some fun would be perfect a very slight lump or bump we could happily see through!

Safe and honest pony that knows his/her job is our main concern a pony who is capable of teaching children the ropes in a big arena and look after them leaving jockey and mum with a smile as long as the country! (a four legged nanny springs to mind!) The girls are both trained twice a week with help from a county level show trainer therefore plenty of opportunities ahead of them.

We are offering a 5* experienced long term home with a with lovely hacking paths in the area, Nice cosy stable in the cold winter months, access to grazing all year round (also limited grazing paddocks available) plenty of TLC awaits our ponies are never soured and we would welcome yard vettings and references are available from trainers.

We are based in East Yorkshire but prepared to travel. Substantial amount available (but please sensibly priced ponies only please)
If you think you may have what we are looking for then please don’t hesitate to get in touch for a friendly chat!

Thanks for reading.

We’ve put together our top tips to help you avoid being caught out:

  1. Check very carefully the authenticity of any e-mail, especially from abroad. 
  2. Searching the email address on Google can sometimes let you know if the enquiry is from a genuine buyer.
  3. Horses and ponies are almost never purchased unseen, buyers offering to do so should be approached with extreme caution 
  4. Do not deal with buyers proposing to transfer more money than required, as this is money laundering!
  5. Always ask for the buyers full name, telephone number, and address 
  6. Do not part with goods until payment has completely cleared 
  7. If you are suspicious of an enquiry then notify the Internet Service Provider from which the email was sent 
  8. Steer clear of money transfer services, such as Western Union and MoneyGram, which make money instantly available. Instead, opt for PayPal which will hold the payment until both parties are happy
  9. Do not pass on your personal information, such as your address until you are sure the other party is legitimate
  10. Keep a paper trail and always get a receipt

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


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
