  • If you are looking for a horse that looks the part, but thinks like a cob this mare is for you!!!

Registered ISH, full up 16.2hh and 15yrs old.

This mare has done it ALL!!! We are now looking for her forever home where she can live out her days hacking with occasional schooling and enjoying herself whilst being loved and pampered!

She has show jumped (affiliated) up to 1m20 in her younger days. She has also hunted. She is a beautiful mare who doesn’t look her age in the slightest! She is fit, sound and well... no blemishes. She has been well looked after and is up to date with all jabs and dental checks etc.

She hacks alone and in company in a snaffle and is bombproof! She rides well in open spaces. She schools well on the flat but I want a fun home for her as opposed to a schooling home as she is in her element plodding round the countryside stepping up a gear for a nice canter.

She is a lovely person to have around, no vices or nasties at all. Very easy and placid. Good to lead, groom, catch, tack up, load, farrier etc. She turns out with mares or geldings.

Based near clitheroe lancs. Transport can be arranged nationally. Fully fitted tack can be provided separately.

Luna is a stunning 15’1hh bay mare. She is 17 years old but is incredibly sound. Sadly, Luna’s current jockey has outgrown her.

Luna has done a bit of everything but is especially lovely on the flat. She has been ridden by a now 15 year old girl for a year and she totally adored her. Luna loves her jumping. She is incredibly straight and honest. She has jumped 80cm/90cm in competition but has scope to go a little higher.

When it comes to flatwork, she really is a school master. She moves beautifully and is very obedient. She’s successfully done riding club, pony club, showjumping, eventing and dressage. She’s been apart of the Cotswold Vale Farmers Pony Club with her current jockey who has done camp and rallies on her. Her current rider was desperate to event her before Covid-19 stopped everything.

Luna is very well behaved on the ground. She is good to shoe, clip and load. She is snaffle mouthed for everything. She will hack alone or in company however as a competition horse she is better in company as it’s what she’s used to. She’d make a great grass roots event horse or a competitive riding club/pony club horse. This mare is looking for a 5* home.

Based in Newent, Gloucestershire

  • She can still be ridden (recreationally or lowest level classes) and is well-mannered and polite on the ground perfect for those in hand classes

Honest advert. Whisper is a beautiful 17yo Dutch warmblood (KWPN) mare (09-04-2003) standing at 1.74 cm. 

She has successfully competed up to Medium – Advanced level up untill 2019. She is a true eyecatcher with three correct floaty paces.

Seven years ago she obtained a fracture of the phalanx in her left front leg. She recovered fully from this as has been out competing since, yet we feel like she has reached her limit in terms of what we can ask of her without risking further injury. We have ambitions to progress our dressage career further, and are therefore looking for a new home for Whisper.

The showing ring may be the perfect place for her to shine, and still offer someone years of fun and rosettes. This discipline does not exist in the Netherlands, hence we are offering her for sale abroad. She can still be ridden (recreationally or lowest level classes) and is well-mannered and polite on the ground perfect for those in hand classes. She really enjoys hacking out too. Whisper is a social and easy-going mare, and is currently kept out in a herd. She is well behaved and good with farrier and vet, no loading vices and easy to do in every way. 

The only vice she does have is that she mildly windsucks; but this has never caused any problems and hardly occurs when she is turned out.

We are looking for an absolute five-star home for this very special horse. 

Asking price around £2500, yet a good home is more important, and this price is negotiable. Any further questions please do not hesitate to get in touch. Videos available upon request.

Snoopy is a pink peppered Oldenburg. He has been with me for going on 7 years and is my partner and best friend. He has never said no and always risen to ever occasion. He is a very calm and genuine ride, Snoopy will always look after his rider and is never strong or silly

Snoopy's breeding speaks for itself and shows why he has great conformation and naturally excels at dressage. He has a relaxed and trainable attitude, making him a fun and accurate ride. Never spooky at shows or training.

We are currently teaching half steps and he is progressing well. We are also progressing with canter pirouettes and tempi changes

He has never been over worked or 'out every weekend' and we have always selected our competitions carefully so he isn't over worked. So his age does not reflect his mileage

His main source of exercise has always been hacking and we have the luxury of having wonderful farmland hacking right next door. Therefore, he is used to being hacked alone or with company.

Can be turned out with mares or geldings, youngsters or oldies! Very passive in the field.

Great to shoe, clip, load, travel, catch, handle.

Well accustomed to dogs, chickens, llamas, tractors and farm machinery.

Absolutely the perfect home is being sort for this amazing horse. I am happy to wait till that home appears, so am in no rush to sell.

NO dreamers, bargain hunters, novices or beginners.

Oliver is a sensible ride and looks after his jockey. He is the most perfect 1st horse moving off from ponies or for someone looking for a genuine horse to enjoy.

He is a total school master and knows his job inside out but he is not a novice ride and does require a competent rider as he is a forward going, responsive ride. However he is completely safe and sane.

He is good to do in all ways - catch, groom, tack up, load, plait up and does tolerate a bath! Good temperament and he is a very gentle, kind boy- has been ideal to home produce.

Oliver has had an extremely successful showing career - qualifying on numerous occasions for HOYS and RI.

He would happily continue to go out showing regularly or would be a fabulous dressage horse. A lot of untapped potential in this sphere.

This precious horse is only available to a 10* knowledgeable home. We would happily keep him forever but he loves his job and has so much more to give.

Based near Aspatria, Cumbria.
