  • Hacking he is bombproof in the main road with lorries, tractors and buses

Nobby is a lovely Irish cob X, he has movements to do dressage as he floats in Trot. he has lightly schooled so is green in the school but super safe.

Hacking he is bombproof in the main road with lorries, tractors and buses.

We have hacked a few times on his own and has been good just green. If he is too look at something that’s all he does, look. In company he will lead, go behind and leave the other horse if needed.

He has popped the odd cross pole, has yet to be clipped out so not sure how he is too clip. Shod only in front at the moment.

Nobby cob would love a family that want to enjoy a bit of everything. He is 5 and green but very willing and safe so would make a lovely long term project also.

  • Around 15.2h
  • Preferably a gelding, preferably over 8 years
  • MUST be safe hacking out in company and alone (I’m very aware they aren’t machines but no loonies or spooky ones, no whipping round and buggering off at the first sign of a dock leaf giving it the evil eye) 
  • Needs to be more whoa than go without being dead from the neck down, my mature client has electric knickers 
  • Will never need to do a dressage test or jump many coloured fences but needs to be able to pop fun ride type fences and have the odd jolly round our fences here at Rabson 
  • A cob cross/Connie cross/ID cross type would be ideal
  • MUST load and travel well alone and stand quietly to be mounted
  • Will be kept on full livery with me so please, no sweet itch, vices or bloody horrid temperaments cos I really don’t have the time or the energy for hassle
  • I’d rather buy in this country as I’d prefer to know a bit of history or maybe have references. If the candidate has hunted quietly that would be bloody perfect but not essential 
  • Decent budget for the right horse

Wanted ~ A Safe, Genuine Character For Happy Hacking & Pleasure Rides.

Knowledgeable Family Home Offered For A New Faithful Friend

Ref #: 236909
  • Approx 15.2hh. Medium/Heavyweight/Cob Type, Gelding Preferred.

  • Approx 15.2hh. Medium/Heavyweight/Cob Type, Gelding Preferred.
  • Experienced, Loving 5* Family Home Offered. References Available.
  • For Mum To Accompany Daughter On Her Pony Enjoying Hacking, Pleasure Rides & Low Level Schooling.

I am tentatively searching for a true family friend to join us at our home along with our daughters' pony, our 2 Shetlands & my dear faithful friend who now very sadly needs to be retired.

Due to ongoing health issues with my current horse I have been out of the saddle for the last year so I am looking for a steady, genuine character who will take care of me! We will be enjoying hacking, pleasure rides... popping over logs on the way & some low-level schooling just for fun! I am not looking for a world beater or the type that requires riding every day. My 8 year old daughter has a wonderful pony & I would like to join her on hacks from our home & to attend pleasure rides together (rather than tagging along on the bike for ever more!). It really is vital that I find a trustworthy, straightforward character who I can rely on when out riding with my young daughter alongside me. I will also be hacking out on my own at times so needs to be sensible when out without company. We live in a rural area so meet very little traffic, however, we do occasionally meet tractors/trailers so the horse must be sensible in this situation.

I can offer an experienced, loving, forever family home with stabling, post & rail fencing & I would be open to home vetting & happy to supply references if required.

Norfolk based.

Many thanks for reading.

Was sat on as a 3yr old then left due to no fault of her own. Now been broken correctly, riding out on the open beach and schooling in walk and trot. Still green but now ready for someone to put their own stamp on her.

Horses of this calibre very rarely come on the market. She is sane and sensible and eager to please. We have left her unhogged to give the buyer the option.

She is fit, shod and ready to go. Very sad sale, top class home is paramount.

  • Done r.c training sessions, pleasure / sponsored rides, cross country, cubbing (which he loved), local shows showing and hacking

I've owned murphy since a foal in that time my daughter has mostly ridden him and has done r.c training sessions, pleasure/sponsored rides, cross country, cubbing (which he loved), local shows showing and hacking.

For the past couple of years he has mainly been used as a happy hacker for myself to regain my confidence on and flat work schooling which he enjoys.

Although Murphy doesn’t enjoy showjumping he does enjoy cross country and doing all the optional jumps on pleasure rides and also has jumped out cubbing but we are not hedge hopper riders.

Murphy hacks out alone or in company he can look at silly things like a different colour leaf when hacking alone, he’s excellent in traffic, open spaces and bridle paths

We have had complete novices ride Murphy and we have have advance people ride him he can be a kick along ride for a novice he’s not strong to ride

He loves to be fussed and groomed, he is excellent to clip apart from his legs where he does need sedating!! He’s happy to live on his own or in company and doesn’t mind been the last one left in the field gets on with all other horses.

Murphy is up to date with everything please message me any further questions we are in Warminster Wiltshire
