  • Approx 15-15.2hh Reliable Family Horse
  • M-H/Weight Cob Type Preferred
  • Knowledgeable Family Home Offered
  • Approx 15-15.2hh Reliable Family Horse
  • M-H/Weight Cob Type Preferred
  • Knowledgeable Family Home Offered

Do you have a genuine, trustworthy horse who you are needing to find a genuine, trustworthy, new home for?  I have been searching for many months, for a steady, gentle natured character.  We offer a super, kind, knowledgeable family home along with my retired golden oldie, my daughter’s pony & our 2 Shetlands.  Our horses are part of our family & receive the very best of care & I would be happy to provide references & welcome home visits.  I have many years of experience; however, I am a middle aged, middle weight mum whose days of riding ‘quirky’ horses are now in the past so please nothing too forward, sharp or unpredictable - I am not as brave as I once was!  We enjoy spending time with our horses so he/she must be gentle natured, enjoy attention & be good to handle on the ground.  

I sadly had to retire my wonderful boy last year – he is now enjoying life as our much loved ‘lawnmower’ at home with us.  I have been left searching for a horse to join us for myself to ride enjoying leisurely hacks, pleasure rides, beach trips & the odd bit of schooling but nothing competitive.  I will often be hacking alongside my 8-year-old daughter on her pony so it is hugely important that I find a laid back, trustworthy type who I can depend on.

We live in a rural area & although we generally meet very little traffic, it is usually a tractor/farm vehicle, so it is important that my new horse is trustworthy around this type of traffic.  Although I will often hack out with my daughter or friends, I will also be hacking alone at times so must be happy/safe hacking out solo.

I do appreciate that no horse is ‘perfect’ but please do be honest about any possible known ‘issues’ as I will be wishing to view & have the horse vetted.  Although I am not searching for a ‘world beater’ or intending to participate in any strenuous adventures I am looking for a healthy & sound horse to enjoy many years ahead out making memories!

We are based in Norfolk so ideally looking for something in or around East Anglia but would travel further (lockdown allowing) if plenty of info, videos & photos could be provided beforehand.  I am looking to purchase & have a sensible budget & a forever home for the right horse.

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.

  • Looking for a quieter life
  • Sound with no heath issues
  • Full history known

Sound with no health issues and really does not look his age he’s in great shape and still a stunning horse.

Teeth and tet up to date and no problems. Good with the farrier / vet.

He is very well bred and has in the past had a very successful showing career he still has an amazing movement and is a very comfortable ride.

He hacks alone or in company prefers to hack out with another but happy to go on his own but takes confidence from rider if unsure of something. He likes a routine and is stabled in winter at night and summer during the day could live out with open barn or good field shelter.

He needs a firm but kind person as can very occasionally be difficult on the ground. Really looking for the best of homes for my boy a light weight adult that wants to hack two or three times a week or pop in the school or someone looking for a healthy companion.

Please no time wasters. Open to vet.

Forward going 17 years young Irish cob gelding. He loves to hack out, is more forward when jumping and can be strong so not a novice ride.

He’s been in our family for 10 years but due to family circumstances we are having to be realistic and find a good loving home for our boy.

  • Sport Horse
  • Chestnut
  • Mare
  • 17 years

  • By PRIMITIVE STAR (ISH)
  • Proven Broodmare
  • Successful Progency

Starnite was bred by Louella Stud and used as one of their foundation mares before I bought her 8 years ago.

She is a very good mother and has always conceived on her first attempt whether it be a natural covering or by AI.

I have always sent her to Twemlow Stud to conceive and give birth.

Starnite is only for sale as my husband and myself are getting older and no longer wish to breed. We will be very sad to see her go.

Starnite is in excellent condition both in appearance and physically. She is ready for stud.

Her progeny have all been successful and have gone on to do a job. Photographs of her progency are available at request.

She is up to date with her Flu and Tetanus injections, and had her teeth rasped this week.

We are based in Cheshire.

  • Wanted on permanent loan, poss purchase a quiet & sensible semi-retired 16HH+ gelding for light hacking and companion.
  • No full TBs thank you.

It is very difficult to sum up the type of horse I am looking for and don’t want to exclude anybody but he must be in his 20’s, Hunter type ID/WB/TBx

He must be 100% safe in traffic, to hack alone and in company, open spaces, not spooky and have good field and stable manners.

I have kept horses at home for over 37 years and look after them myself. I am a capable rider but have never been very confident; hence my new best friend must be safe and kind.

Please email me in the first instance if you think you may have what I am looking for.

Email: straker.barnes@btinternet.com

Thank you Wendy (Soberton, Hampshire)
