  • A truly special family friend
  • Regularly ridden by children of varying ages and abilities
  • 5* kind loving home only



Shetland, Black, Mare, 8 years

40 inch black standard (not registered but some recorded breeding) Shetland

A truly special family friend, completely trust worthy, kind, honest, genuine and gentle for the tiniest child to brush, wash, oil, pick feet out, hug, cuddle and climb all over

I have never ever seen this pony pull a face, put her ears back, swish her tail, nip or bite, kick, turn her bottom, waft a leg, push or barge

Rides on and off the lead rein, follows behind or will ride and lead off another horse

Completely used to babies and toddlers screaming and shouting all around her

Regularly ridden by children of varying ages and abilities, but mainly used as a confidence giving first pony. Hacks out regularly around our village, the neighbours often come out for a chat and to give her a pat!

Happily lives on her own or with company. Used to electric fenced paddocks and respects them. 

Absolutely loves people and is always pleased to see you. Excellent stable manners, very happy to stand in for hours on end and does not whizz around, fret or try to escape 

100% traffic, catch, box (trailer), clip and with the farrier 

Attended local shows with great success, competing in handy pony, Best Turned Out, mini jumping, fancy dress and ‘the pony the judge would most like to take home’

5* kind loving home only, where she will be treated as part of the family. During the summer months she does need to wear a fly rug due to sweetitch – this has never caused a problem for us.

A real little gem, very much loved by all who know her.

Price includes bridle, club saddle and rugs. Can even include electric tape, posts and a battery! Lots more photos and videos available on request

  • Fabulous temperament
  • Fantastic to be ridden and handled by small children

Littleacorns Star Gazer

Beautiful Skewbald Shetland

Shetland, Skewbald, Mare, 5 years, 9 hands

Annie has one of the kindest, most loving temperaments I have ever come across. She is lovely in the stable and is good to handle by even the smallest of children. She loves fuss and attention and will stand all day to be brushed and messed with.

She has 3 lovely little paces and happily goes on or off the lead rein. She is a true first pony and she has been ridden by the youngest of children to 10 year olds. She is fantastic in wide open spaces and great to hack out. She never gets strong or fast. She will be a real rosette machine for a lucky child.

Annie is extremely well mannered and is good to clip, bath and catch. She loads and travels very well in either a trailer or lorry, and will happily stand for hours at a show. She lives on a farm so is good with traffic, farm vehicles and animals and she lives in or out with a mixed herd. She isn't mareish and has never had laminitis or sweetich and is fully wormed up to date.

This is a very sad sale and Annie is looking for her new best friend. She is a very special little pony who deserves the very best of homes. She is fully passported and comes with her saddle, bridle and 2 rugs.

  • Fully registered from the renowned Coppice Stud



Shetland, Piebald, Mare, 7 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.

Bernadette is a lovely 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 laminitis or sweetich, she is wormed up to date. She loads and travels well and will happily go into a trailer or lorry. She doesn’t get fazed by shows and will happily stand on the lorry all day.

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

She is a definite 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.

 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’ & '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
