Warmblood mare 20 years young

  • WARMBLOOD MARE 20YRS YOUNG
  • FOR SALE
  • £3,000
  • SIENOUK VAN DE LIEVEHEREBOOM

This is an incredibly sad sale of our beautiful 15.3hh warmblood mare who has given us so much in the three years that we have owned her (her previous owner had her for 10 years). My daughter is going to university and we are unable to give Tonic the forever home that she needs. Tonic has a great work ethic and will always try her very best, she has never had an off day (and is not in any way ‘Mare-ish’).

During her time with us Tonic has always delivered and this has resulted in numerous placings at eventing, show jumping, arena eventing, JWS and dressage, including national titles. Tonic has competed at many major venues including Royal Windsor and Hickstead.

Going forward we are looking for a knowledgeable and caring home where she can enjoy hacking (in company or alone) dressage and veterans showing as we have retired her from jumping. Tonic is an eye-catching horse with excellent breeding. She is a ridden in a snaffle, forward and very well schooled; she has always, without fail, looked after my daughter.

If you can offer Tonic a 5* home she will repay you with endless affection, enthusiasm and trying her very best for you. She loves attention both in the saddle and stable, and is perfect with shoeing, clipping and dentist etc.

We have plenty of video footage available.

Tack by separate negotiation: Devacoux and Fairfax saddles

She will come with plenty of Premier Equine rugs, boots etc.

I have written this advert with a very heavy heart, Tonic is a much loved member of our family but without our own facilities, we are unable to keep her. If you think you can offer our beloved mare the knowledgeable, loving home we are looking for, please call.

Tel: 07788 678645

We are based just off the M4 on the Wilts / Berks border.

16hh Oldenburg gelding

This little horse oozes presence and quality has manners and temperament that money can’t buy and looks to die for.

Although he’s 20 this year he has been very well managed and maintained all his life (same home since 6yr old) has very low mileage for his age which is going to give someone else lots of years of fun left with him. He’s never been lame and still moves and acts like a youngster.

Very straightforward ride safe to handle, looks after his riders and a pleasure to own.

Looking for a fantastic home for this gem off a horse. Would suit a child coming off ponies/ pony club home or amateur looking to just have some fun.

Mid 4 figures. Open to vetting

  • An absolute gem of a horse!

Snicker's has been with us for 3 fantastic years, he is only for sale due to my daughter now going off to University and wanting him to find a new forever home before she goes, due to personal reasons in our family, he has not been ridden much in the past 6 months, but my daughter hopped on him this week and he has come back into work lovely with no fuss, as always.

We have had him for pure dressage which he has been fabulous at and has brought my daughter up to Elementary/Medium level, he has also given her great confidence, he has never been naughty and has just really looked after her.

Nick's would be great for a lady wanting a riding club horse that would blast the cross country and do an amazing dressage test and show jumping! Given his age, I would rather he didn't go back to the dizzy heights he once did! He will be great fun for someone wanting a great horse to enjoy at a slightly lower level! Or to another pure dressage home as he has so much more to give!

I do not want him to go onto a serious eventing home or teenager wanting something to take them up the ranks quickly, he has been there and done that, he needs a quieter life, so a mature rider, wanting a nice gentleman to take them out without being silly he is the man. Nick's hacks out nicely but does prefer company until he knows his way around, then he doesn't care.

Will come with some rugs. Nick's has had some past injuries but nothing has ever bothered him to the levels we have competed, please call me to discuss and I can go through it with you. This is why he is priced to sell.

He is great for the farrier, loads and travels well, to clip he's good if you know what your doing if not a sedaline works well, but we have never needed it, he has always been really good with us.

Give me a call/text for any videos etc

  • Razzle is a 16.1 Oldenburg x Connemara, she evented as 5yo then spent the next 10 years as a broodmare so she is very low mileage, really healthy, fit as a fiddle, definitely doesn’t show her age!

She has bags of attitude and can be mareish. She will work nicely in the school when she wants to, similarly with showjumping and cross country, she is very capable when she wants to be. She much prefers to be in a group and go with the flow.

Razzle started hunting last year, this is without a doubt her calling in life. She absolutely loves it! Sensible and mannerly, will go front or back of the field, jumps everything, very sure footed, good brakes, snaffle mouth.

She is an excellent traveler, also good to catch, clip, shoe etc. Good In traffic, lives in or out. Would make good hireling. Not suitable for master/whipper in as won’t like separating from the field without company.

Also an experienced broodmare and she could be put in foal again.

Romsey, Hampshire. Tack and rugs included

Spider has returned to work following some time off with his previous owner (due to lack of time not health reasons). Since being with us he has attended a couple of shows, fun rides, dressage and clinics.

He is mannerly, loads with no problem, easy with farrier, clip, hacks alone or in company on the buckle.

Plan was to continue showing him in the veteran classes and have fun but personal reasons forces sale.

No novices as he is a thoroughbred.

Loving home sought.

Successfully competed upto 1.30m, we feel he would be a dream schoolmaster to someone wanting to be competitive to 1.10m and the odd bigger class. Also a genuine riding club alrounder.

Total gentleman in stable, good to clip, box, shoe and traffic.

Prefers company to hack as can be spooky to hack alone, never nappy or naughty.

Fit and ready to compete after having time off over winter due to us being busy with a house renovation.

Can send more photos

Good home of most importance as this has been a very tough decision

  • The nicest, kindest horse to have around and a complete gentleman.

Omar has had a fabulous career hunting but is now looking for a near retirement life.

He is  a 16.2hh very hansome, dark bay TB x gelding and 19 years old.

He is the nicest, kindest horse to have around and a complete gentleman.

Good to box, shoe, clip, hack out on his own (bomb proof in traffic) and perfect in the stable. Very good with other horses , to lead, travel or be with in the field making him the perfect companion horse.

Jumping is not his thing any more but light hacking duties or as a companion would be fine for him. He lives in or out and is in excellent health in everyway apart from being stiff in his hocks, hence price.

Loving forever home much more important than price.

One of the main issues that RDA groups face is finding an Equine to suit the needs of the participants in their group.

We are regularly contacted with offers of Equines that are ‘the ideal RDA horse or pony’ when actually what is ideal for one group may not be for the next. We are trying to move away from the stereotypical view that RDA Equines are elderly and somewhat static, our horses and ponies need to be fit, healthy and athletic to cope with the lifestyle in an RDA group.

They can range from smaller, forward going ponies to weight carrying cobs and can take part in a range of disciplines from Riding to Carriage Driving, Vaulting to Show Jumping and Endurance.

If you contact an RDA Group about your Equine please be prepared to fill in an Equine Initial Interest Form which will ask you many questions about your horses’ temperament, health history, experience and lifestyle. Many groups will prefer to have an equine on trial to make sure they are suitable for the job.

For long term loans and purchases they will also be required to have a Pre-Purchase Examination.

If you think your equine has what it takes, please contact one of the groups below.
