WANTED: Genuine, Fun, Confidence Giver

WANTED: Genuine, Fun, Confidence Giver


Ref #: 342119
  • Confidence giver/School Master Type
  • Safe
  • Hacks alone & in company
  • Confidence giver/School Master Type
  • Safe
  • Hacks alone & in company
After losing what should have been my horse of a lifetime, I’m on the hunt for a new best friend. I know getting all of the below is near on impossible (or extortionate), but as many ticks in the boxes as possible!

Please note I don’t have a 5 figure budget so please take that into account before contacting:


- 15-16.2hh
- 8-12yo (open to younger if sane & sensible)
- Schoolmaster/confidence giving type whilst I find my feet again
- Must hack alone & in company
- Good to load, travel, trim etc
- Ideally have the capability to eventually do a nice lower level dressage test one day!
- I don‘t tend to jump nowadays but I have a trainer and friends who could jump him/her for variety if they need it until I fancy it!
- Open to breeds but nothing super hairy or heavy - prefer something sporty like an ISH/ID X
- Preferably will pass a 5* vetting for my own sanity

Absolute bonus if they come with any wardrobe!

I’m by no means a novice, but no doubt a little wobbly after a stretch of time off after an accident & losing my horse.

I don’t want a world beater this time. I’ve had a really unlucky 4 years and I just want something ready to go & give me back some confidence to get out, have fun and compete here and there. I’m on the most amazing yard with all year turnout (24/7 in summer), a trainer to help us with our partnership, miles of on and offsite hacking so he/she really would have the best home.

North west based but willing to travel up to 2/3 hours if viewing is required.

DO YOU HAVE A HORSE OR PONY SUITABLE FOR THE RDA?

DO YOU HAVE A HORSE OR PONY SUITABLE FOR THE RDA?

WANTED ON LONG TERM LOAN / PURCHASE

Ref #: 249896
  • If you think your equine has what it takes, please contact one of the groups below
  • If you think your equine has what it takes, please contact one of the groups below

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.
