  • 15-16.2hh

  • Hack Alone
  • Hack in Company
  • No regular bucking/rearing
  • Good to shoe

Looking for a new horse to spend my time with and have fun on – nothing too serious!

Must hack out alone and in company, it’s only a short ride on a quiet country side road to get onto miles of bridleway!

Looking for a sports horse/Irish type around 15.3 5-12years but fairly open depending on the horse!

Wanting mainly to hack, pleasure rides, pop a jump (maybe some low-level/fun competitions), have a bit of fun schooling and join in with clinics. Doesn’t need to be well schooled and don’t mind a little bit quirky as long as made aware of any issues but no regular bucking/rearing. I can sit a buck but after working with a project that bucks I found myself not enjoying my hobby anymore.

Must be open to having a 5-stage vetting. Would be based on a yard with excellent facilities, miles of hacking, all year turn out and stabled overnight through the winter.

Happy to share details and stay in contact – I work my own hours so have plenty of time during the day to ride and work around this.

Budget £5000 (£6000 if tack and wardrobe included).

Can you help me to find my next dancing partner and equine friend?


Ref #: 280030
  • Mare or gelding
  • 7+ years
  • Around 16hh
  • Training at medium level preferred with competition experience
  • Mare or gelding
  • 7+ years
  • Around 16hh
  • Training at medium level preferred with competition experience

About me -

Sadly after 2 years working with my heart horse Biscuit, he is no longer able to help me pursue my dreams of competing Nationally and Internationally in Para Dressage. I have ridden for 25 years and love the freedom that horses offer me. Biscuit allowed me to not only reach my "impossible dream" of competing Internationally but also fulfilled a long held desire to ride on the beach and on open forest. Horses allow me a space to express myself that I don't have elsewhere, and I find much joy in working alongside them and their human teams to bring out the best in us as a partnership. With Biscuit, in 2021 we were crowned National Silver Summer Champions as well as winning all 6 classes we contested at 1* International level at Bishop Burton and Keysoe.

I have both physical and visual impairments. I am a grade 3 rider, so bold walk and expressive trot are vital, but most importantly for me a safe, sane, responsive horse that has a willingness to learn is a must. Creating a partnership is as important to me as competing, I love getting to know a horse's personality and just "being" alongside them.

I live in Dorset but have worked with horses as far north a Gloucestershire.  As long as I can get to you by public transport within 4 hours, I am more then happy to travel for the right horse.

About my future dancing partner -

  • I would now love to find a horse who can help me compete at Gold level Nationally and 2*/3* Internationally at shows around Great Britain.
  • A horse either to part loan or an owner who would like to see their horse give someone a lot of pleasure, and hopefully see their horse represent Team GB
  • Around 16hh (no taller then 17hh as I am not very tall)
  • Mare or gelding
  • 7+ years
  • Training at medium level preferred with competition experience (to know walk pirouettes, rein back, leg yield, medium trot)

My team-

With previous horses, I have worked both with just one person or a team, and I am open to both options as I understand the commitment of this. I really enjoy this aspect of the sport, working with and getting to know different people. My previous results have only been possible because of my amazing support crews! To be able to ride safely I would require assistance on the ground to prepare the horse, someone to work in the horse and be my "eyes on the ground" when riding. I would also need support both at day and stay away shows.

Happy to provide references from trainers and owners of horses who have helped me on my Para journey since 2014.

This is my dream wishlist, please email zoesq@hotmail.co.uk if you have a horse, know of any that may be suitable or would like to work with me.

Any ideas welcome, and happy to answer any questions too.

My Facebook is Zoe Squirrell Para Dressage Rider to find out more about me.
