  • Looking for a dancing partner to enjoy dressage training and competing
  • Mare or gelding

Following the sudden retirement of my horse, I’m looking for a dancing partner to enjoy dressage training and competing. I’m a 40yo amateur who has owned and competed ISH and natives over the last 6 years. Although I have ridden horses who are a little green in their schooling, they have all been sane, calm and totally amateur proof on the ground and in the basics. I don’t have the ability to deal with sensitive, quirky types, and so I’d like to find a genuine, trustworthy horse who will enjoy training and competing with me. I’m looking for a mare or gelding, to suit my 5’8” solid frame with the following traits:

Mannerly and easy to do on the ground in all ways, suitable for an amateur lady to handle solo, load and travel on my own.

A horse who enjoys flatwork and likes to train, and will be well suited to a predominantly non-jumping life - although, popping the odd pole for variety or the ability to have the odd low level jumping session at home would be lovely.

A safe, trustworthy hack who will enjoy relaxed hacking solo or in company.

Not sharp, quirky or difficult to ride; I do not have the skills for horses who bolt, rear, nap or buck - I can sit to the odd buck into canter or the sort of spook that is easy to get past with leg and reassurance, but I know my limitations and anything too sharp would be beyond me.

Age is not important if sound and able to be in full ridden work

I’d love to have another horse who will enjoy a one to one partnership and be happy to go out and about to train and compete. Joining pleasure rides, a trip to the beach or even hound exercise are all extra curricular activity options!

I love to learn and have weekly lessons as a minimum. I’m open to ideas about the level of flatwork to be considered; it can be something that is established, but needs working on; or a schoolmaster that has the moves and can help me learn more. Maybe you have an eventer or showjumper now looking for a different level of work, or a show horse who is ready for a change of career.

Possibly your dressage partner has to make way for youngsters coming up, but could help a less experienced rider go up the levels and still has a love of the white boards. I’ve been training at elementary level at home, competing at Novice, but really wanting to do a lot more in the next few years.

A lovely life awaits with a settled routine and regular work; excellent stable facilities, daily year-round turn out in strip grazing, and first class care at a private training yard where I also live on the premises. Great surfaces in large indoor and outdoor schools, with B road hacking as well as woodland and field riding. I have the support of an experienced BD accredited coach to help me here on the premises, and first rate farriery, physio, massage and veterinary care visiting regularly.

I can provide references from owners that have loaned horses to me, and from my trainer. Videos of me riding are available and I’m happy to send on request.

Looks, breed and type are less important than the character and temperament to match my capabilities as a rider.

Overall soundness and quality of movement should be suitable for a competitive amateur to work with.

Lease or full loan considered, with a contract in place on a long term basis but happy to discuss trial arrangements to suit you.

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.
