Gorgeous Shetland


Shetland, Chestnut, Gelding, 6 years, 9 hands

Rugs is such a sweetie and is handled constantly. I often take him for walks tacked up and he has had little riders sitting on him happily. I have also been long reining him very successfully.

Good with farrier and vet and easy to catch. 

Loves being fussed over and groomed.

Needs a little jockey to love him, or a driving or showing home.

He's no longer needed as a companion to my horse.

£600 ono

Rummy is a beautiful Skewbald gelding with excellent confirmation and a wonderful flowing movement. We have owned Rummy for almost two years and we have had much success in the show ring in lead rein and also first ridden classes

He needs no working in and can go straight from the lorry into the ring

Hacks out alone or in company. He attended pony camp where he was an absolute star!

Potential to be an open pony as he moves up a gear with a bigger more experienced jockey.

Rummy was the only Shetland in the top ten of the M&M lead rein class at the Great Yorkshire Show 2014 out of 39 entries

 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

Amazing First Pony

Total confidence giver

Shetland, Black, Gelding, 8 years, 10.1 hands

This pony is a little rosette machine as well as a Mothers Dream.

We bought him for our 7 year old who had lost all confidence and she is now flourishing and feels ready to go onto the next level. 

I cannot speak highly enough of this little chap who has proved to be very versatile. He is true to type. He is a Waulkmill pony so good Pedigree. His passport displays his pedigree and he is up to date with all vaccinations.

He is handled by 6 and 7 year olds, is good to box, farrier, catch etc.

My daughter has taken him to Pony Club rallies and is going to mini camp next week. This is a really fun First Pony.

If you're looking for a true first pony then he's the one for you.

  • Fully registered from the renowned Coppice stud
  • eligible for both M&M and coloured classes
  • Qualified NPS summer champs first time out
  • great with children



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.
