Fully Registered Shetland Pony - £950

Shetland, Black, 8 years, 10.2 hands

Fully Registered Shetland pony, Olaf the Lofty is a lovely stamp of pony, bred in the Shetland Islands and brought over as a youngster, he has been in the same home since

Olaf will hack out on a lead rein, and will happily work in the school, he is a bright forward pony so would possibly make a great shetland racing pony

He has hunted on and off the rein, and was great with the hounds, some were as big as him! He is handled by the children and will stand to be brushed and cuddled

He is on a busy mixed yard and is used to both mares and geldings

Olaf has also been out with out youngsters where he was a fantastic nanny. Olaf is a super stamp of pony, and would show in lead rein

We have teneded to do more work on the lead reing, but I am sure he would not take much to get to first ridden. He is ready to go on and find a new child who he can go out with and have fun 

This is a very sad sale as we were flooded in the spring and we do not have the grazing going into the winter

Can be viewed on the Gloucestershire / Worcestershire border open to vets, no loans or tack and please no timewasters

Transport can be arranged

Shetland, Piebald, Mare, 6 years, 10.2 hands
Coppice Fanfare   
Coppice Briar Rose   

Coppice Bernadette is a fully registered up to height standard shetland, she is a proper little pony who oozes quality and with the look at me quality. She has been in the same home since she was a foal, and has always been a pleasure to have around.

Bernatdette is a lovley kind pony who will happily stand to be brushed and loved, she is handled by the children and is used to a busy yard. She will turn out with mares or geldings, or happily live in. She has never had laminitus or sweetich, she is wormed up to date. She loads and travels well and will happily go into a trailer or lorry. She doesnt get phased by shows and will happily stand on the lorry all day.

As a youngster she spend 3 summers at a childrens farm park , so she is used to farm animals and lots of small children.

She is a definate show prospect, as first time out qualified and picked up her novice lead rein NPS summer championships ticket in good company, she is being sold with this. We have broken and schooled her on the lead rein, she would not take much to get off the lead rein as she is a bonny mare and really enjoys her work.

This is a very sad sale as we have had her a long time, but relocation has forced us to cut down on numbers.

Bernadette is looking for a new special best little friend, or alternatively would be an asset to a stud who wish to breed quality.

Open to vet, please no timewasters - does not come with tack.

Super 37" Grey Shetland Mare

Shetland, Grey, Mare, 11 years
Sedgehill Cavalier  Sedgehill Mercury 
Pittachope Lucy Grey 
Vanity of Touchwood  Bacchus of Touchwood 
Kensons Vogue 

37" 11 year old grey shetland mare for sale. 'Tori' is a little superstar

We bought her for my 6 year old son a year ago as a pony club/show pony but after a super time at mini camp last year and a few little shows he has decided that bikes and tractors are more interesting

This meant that my daughter has had an extra one to ride which she has loved! She has done extremely well at First Ridden and just missed out qualifying for the Pretty Polly RI by 1 conformation mark, equal show mark with the winner!

She is very well schooled and literally push button when doing her show. That said she is NOT a tiny tots or FYFR pony as she likes to get on with things and can be strong and finds Lead Rein particularly dull

She will pop small jumps but does not enjoy jumping too high sadly as she has done a flat race and my daughter was hoping to do the Shetland Grand National with her but she doesn't enjoy it enough and is quite a lot smaller than most that do it. She absolutely loved the flat racing though and is fast!

My daughter has now got the bug for racing and wants to find a bigger pony that will take her over the hurdles, hence the very sad sale of Tori

She comes with her qualification to both the Novice and Open First Ridden at the NPS Summer Champs, is up-to-date with her vaccinations, worming and feet trimming. Nothing phases her and she is fabulous to clip, trim, in traffic, runs up the ramp to the lorry and very easy at shows

She has an abundance of mane and is such a lovely character who can be groomed and led by small children with ease

This is a very sad sale and she will only go to the best, most suitable home


Located near Royal Wootton Bassett, Wiltshire.

£1,500 Negotiable

 Horsequest - The UK's Leading Equine Sales Site



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’, a buyer supposedly from Ireland 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
