WANTED 15.2 - 16.2h FIRST HORSE FOR BE100 AND PC TEAMS


Ref #: 225878

  • Must have successful proven record
  • Must be genuine as a first horse

  • Must have experience in all three phases
  • Must have successful proven record
  • Must be genuine as a first horse
  • Ideally 8 years and over unless very experienced before this age
  • Must hack alone and in company

My long legged 14 year old daughter is rapidly out growing her fantastic 14.2h event / Pony Club pony. (For reference, photo is her on a 16.2h). Together they have done all PC teams and a season of BE90 very successfully and just started SJ at 1m. So now looking for a bigger version that can take her to the next stage in time.

Must have a good proven record (ideally BE or PC). Ideally something that loves it's jumping and is forward thinking, without being silly or spooky. And kind and genuine enough to be a first horse

Must be able to hack alone and in company as it's predominantly how we keep fit over winter due to limited facilities (although do regularly box up for flatwork and jumping lessons during the week). Not looking for something with potential.

Because I'm looking for experience, the ideal horse would be at least 7 or 8 years old unless it has had a lot of competition experience before then.

Would live in our small yard with 2 others, so must be ok in a quiet family yard environment.

Excellent budget for a horse with a good, proven record

Ref #: 228423
  • Coaches can travel to yards for individual face-to-face training in controlled outdoor environments

  • Riders are now permitted to transport horses to a venue for an individual lesson or facility hire outdoors
  • Venues should conduct full risk assessments and ensure that the required public health, hygiene and social distancing measures are implemented effectively
  • SOCIAL DISTANCING MUST BE OBSERVED AT ALL TIMES

It's hard to believe nearly 2 months have passed since lock down began. We hope you're all staying safe and sane during this difficult time. 

The British Equestrian Federation have reviewed their stance on riding and coaching, and the following developments have been announced:

Coaches can travel to yards for individual face-to-face training in controlled outdoor environments. They must ensure that the necessary measures, risk assessments and safeguarding provisions are put in place, including checking insurance cover with their providers. 

Riders are now permitted to transport horses to a venue for an individual lesson or facility hire outdoors. Those involved in travelling to or from a venue must all be from the same household. Riders may meet with one other from outside their household, which may be a coach or other participant, all with the proviso that the appropriate social distancing and hygiene practices are in place. 

Venues should conduct full risk assessments and ensure that the required public health, hygiene and social distancing measures are implemented effectively.

Social distancing must be observed at all times, as should public health, hygiene and biosecurity requirements. It is asked that the equestrian public consider the risk of their activity, and to ride or exercise where it is safe to do so and within the capabilities and fitness levels of them and their horse.

Looking for a 15.2hh plus cob type or weight carrying gelding. Mares considered if fits all other criteria and not marish. Age, colour, breed irrelevant but must be good to hack alone and in company and must have done both regularly

I’m well aware horses are not machines and don’t mind them having the occasional jump or stop to look at something but no extreme reactions, not nappy, jig joggy or completely dead to leg and must be good riding in busy village environment, in open spaces and with all traffic including motorbikes, quads, cyclists and tractors etc

Happy to live out with shelter and company and not silly if not ridden consistently, particularly in winter when it may be weekends only. Not looking for a world beater, just a nice family horse, preferably with a bit of personality, to come to an experienced home where he / she will be loved and have a relatively easy life! Mainly for hacking and maybe some light schooling, low level jumping. The right horse will have a home for life

Would prefer to buy something that has some known history but will consider any if the temperament is right. Must also be good to shoe, clip, load and all the usual things

Decent budget for right horse but no silly prices as I’m not looking for a competition horse

A trial or short loan with view to buy would be perfect, but if not then will want to try a few times to ensure we’re right for each other. Must be open to vetting, although if there are any pre-existing issues, as long as they are declared it may not be a problem

I’m hoping I might find someone who maybe doesn’t want to deal with advertising but is thinking of selling and their choice of home is most important

If you think you have what I’m looking for, or even close to it, please do get in touch via email initially with details and location. I’m based South West but prepared to travel within reason (UK only)

  • Excellent, loving home awaits the right horse
  • An older horse now looking for a quieter life would be ideal
  • Must be well mannered and uncomplicated
  • Excellent, loving home awaits the right horse

I have had several horses in the past, but now I just need an uncomplicated, sound horse to fuss over and hack. An older, riding club type or cob looking for a quieter life would be ideal, but I would also consider any horse over 9 years old. 

Must be excellent in traffic, to catch, shoe, load and clip.

I can offer a loving, experienced private home with year-round turnout, stabling and great hacking. I can provide references and would be happy to loan or buy. 

My perfect horse would be 15.3 to16.3hh, safe, sensible and well mannered. To hack often but with no jumping. Not a plod, but equally, after a couple of bad experiences, I don’t have the confidence to deal with anything sharp, sensitive, hot or spooky. Sex not important but probably not a Thoroughbred. 

Please only contact me if you think you can genuinely offer what I am asking for above. 

I have a decent but not ridiculous budget.  

Ideally within an hour or so of MK44 but I will travel a bit further for something which ticks all the boxes.

A vetting will be essential and equally I am open to any kind of vetting on the home I am offering.

Please text details or call.
