Wanted - Kind, Confidence Giver

Traditional or Cob Type

Ref #: 209556
  • Safe, confidence giver
  • 100% to hack/with farm machinery
  • Showing/dressage potential
  • Safe, confidence giver
  • 100% to hack/with farm machinery
  • Showing/dressage potential

After 3 years out of riding due to hip surgery and then having to put my old boy to rest, I'm desperate to get back into riding and need to find a four legged friend to help me get back in the saddle.

Preferably an evenly marked traditional type

15hh upwards (I'm 5ft8)

I live in the countryside, so my new partner MUST be 100% to hack and with all farm machinery, etc. Good alone and in company, open spaces and competition environments.

I don't mind something that needs a little work in the school, but nothing "quirky". Bolters, spinners or rearers are a no-no nowadays.

It would be nice to find something with the potential to go out to some local shows and low level dressage to start with (- hopefully to progress when I have my riding fitness back!) and basically just to have some fun.

I'm based in Lancashire, but willing to travel a reasonable distance for the right horse.

If you think you might be able to help please get in touch

  • Opportunity for training under the outstanding eye of Isobel Wessels
  • Opportunity to join our beautiful yard - Nupdown Equestrian
  • Kind quiet rider, enjoys quirky horses and ponies
  • Opportunity for training under the outstanding eye of Isobel Wessels

I am an up and coming dressage rider looking for opportunities to further my dressage career. I am a quiet and kind rider who has schooled many horses and ponies of almost every breed, size, shape, type and temperament! I am a massive fan of mares and am experienced with quirky horses. I am also very experienced with ponies and really enjoy working with them. Please read our specs

We are a small, quiet, family run yard with outstanding facilities. We don't have any grooms, staff or other riders and we absolutely adore all of the horses in our care so each horse is known inside and out and is treated as an individual. Here the horses are always put first and with us living on site our horses receive the very best care. We are very experienced, having worked on a variety of different yards including, competition yards, studs, selling yards, hunt yards and have groomed for olympic riders. And have many qualifications in horse care, coaching and riding, including a degree in equine science. 

Alongside my already successful competition record, I was also selected for the Pony Club final squad (2 dressage riders in GB) for the 2014 Rider Development Pathway, have competed at the Pony Club Nationals in dressage and eventing, was a pony club national ambassador and have showjumped competitively to 1.20m alongside team chasing and hunting for fun, but dressage is my passion.

I have a few talented horses of my own which are also available for part ownership. And we also offer schooling and sales livery.

Please get in contact if you have anything you think may be suitable, a horse looking to step down from top level competition, a potential FEI pony wanting competition experience, a showjumper looking for a change in career or a talented youngster that you'd like to watch develop under a sympathetic rider. Your horse or pony doesn't need to be a Valegro look-a-like, with correct schooling we can bring out best in your horse whatever the breed. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you'd like to find out more about our horses. We encourage owners to be as hands-on or as hands-off as you'd like.

Please check us out on facebook, 'Chloe Victoria Dawes' or on instagram 'Dawes Dressage'. References available, also please check out our reviews on facebook at 'Nupdown Equestrian'.
