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.

  • Schoolmaster
  • Hunting and Pony club pony
  • 14.2hh
Am putting feelers out for an experienced pony for my tall 9 year old son to hunt and do all pony club activities.

14.2hh gelding, nothing under 10 years old.

Must be sensible and capable of jumping hunt rails, walls and small hedges when ready!

We live on a farm in Gloucestershire and do lots of hacking and fun rides, so goes without saying must be sensible in open spaces. My son will have a lesson per week and do pony club activities, so would like something that has come from a similar type of home. He may also do the odd Sj comp and Tetrathlon.

My son is keen, but wouldn’t like anything too sharp or too forward, so am looking for something that stays in a nice rhythm and isn’t too strong.

Knowledgable 5* home awaits, with two younger siblings to pass on to.

Very happy to wait for Mr right, but perhaps someone is looking to find their unicorn a new home soon after the hunting season, so a new partnership can be formed ready for fun summer pony club activities. Loan or buy.

Look forward to hearing from you!
