Heartbreaking sale, Cobby has been with us for 5 years now as a mother daughter share. After being 20years out of the saddle he gave us the safe, confidence building ride that we needed.

Cobby loves his hacking and beach rides, enjoys a bit of XC too, will go first or last, good in traffic, will pass big lorry's, tractors etc not much phases him.

He’s easy to catch,clip,load,travel, infact he’s just easy to do.

  • Must be safe
  • Must be good to hack/in traffic
  • No vices

I’m looking to find my new best friend to form a bond with and have fun together. I’m not looking for a hot head or a challenge, just an all rounder who is safe and sensible.

I’ve owned, bred and ridden horses since I was a young child up until a move to London in 2017. Since then I haven’t ridden too much, so am looking for a calm and safe companion to get me back in the saddle again.

I can offer a knowledgeable home, I am a kind and calm rider, with a good secure seat and gentle hands. I’m hoping to be able to do a little bit of everything together, except hunting as I have never hunted.

No vices please, and needs to be completely sound. Ideally would be able to move yards, or be in the Burntwood/Lichfield/Staffordshire area. Loan or loan with a view to buy.

  • Ready to further his education

This lovely lad was imported from Ireland in March and has subsequently taken everything we have thrown at him in his stride with a happy go lucky and laid back attitude. He has been a pleasure to do and a safe ride. Due to his age he wouldn’t be suitable for a complete novice.

He will hack out alone or in company and go first or last and is well used to all manners of big farm machinery, lorries and animals. He is a super comfortable armchair ride.

He is now ready to go on and further his education and in the right home could make a lovely HW show cob, dressage horse or safe hunt horse. His a straight mover and has lovely limbs.

He has still got some filling out and maturing to do but will make a cracking stamp of a cob and is a sort that is now really hard to find.

  • 153cm (15hh) lightweight cob 8yo
  • Dumfries Scotland

Barney joined our team to be a permanent member but he is smaller than originally thought and feel he needs a smaller jockey to make him stand out in the ring.

Barney is 8 but still very green, he needs schooled on he is NOT FOR A NOVICE. Barney is a real eye catcher and will excel once he has been schooled on. He has good basics but his canter is very on the forehand and needs work over the winter.

He is good to hack alone and in company as long as your leg is there to support. Good with traffic ect.

He is easy to work with at the yard and away and a real character. He can be nervous if your too quick around him but once he has settled into a place he is brilliant. A real firm favourite. Loves attention and cuddles.

Barney has been to a few shows and has been impeccable picking up a few rosettes along the way.

Annual height certificate done last month. Barney is easy to rug, load/travel & shoe.

Up to date with back , teeth and shoes.

We have made the decision not to reopen our trekking centre this year so, I’ve been applying my knowledge of what I want for a trekking/school pony and sourcing some super stars to produce and sell. 

This type is super difficult to find a real old fashioned tank of a gelding. 

He has been the RDA for the last five years before coming to us. 

Always ridden in a snaffle. 

Happily hacks alone or company and perfect in open spaces. Knows basic school work but we have mainly hacked. A really funny cuddly character and a yard favourite. 

Absolutely sound and correct and Easy to do in all ways.

Super stamp of a cob

  • Cob

  • 4 years

  • Hacking alone or in company and proving pretty unflappable
  • Good in open spaces
  • Xc schooled

May is approx 16hh, 4 year old Irish cob mare. Super stamp of a good, weight carrying maxi cob with good conformation.

Backed and ridden away in Ireland and mainly hacked on the beach so is brilliant in big open spaces. Hacking well alone or in company and proving pretty unflappable. Hasn’t cared about any traffic we have come across - cars/vans/tractors/pushbikes.

Recently been out SJ and XC schooling, travelled like a rock and jumped everything first time no questions asked. Doesn’t care about fillers.

Only just started flatwork so very green in this respect but has 3 nice paces. Excellent cantering in open spaces.

Would make a super hunter for this coming season or a great hacking/fun ride/xc schooling/riding club type with time put into the schooling.

Can be a bit defensive/mareish towards other horses when first settling but improving massively day by day the longer she is here and can be a bit bullish on the ground when settling but never nasty. 

Very very sweet and loves a scratch/groom/cuddle. She doesn’t give a monkeys about being left in the field on her own so I actually think she’d well suit someone who keeps horses at home with no others, she loves humans!

Good to wash off, catch, groom. Had front shoes done here and was good for the farrier to hot shoe. Recent clean 5 stage vetting, wormed and first vaccination done.

She is a horse that is going to need time to settle into her new home so please bear that mind. She hasn’t done a single thing wrong under saddle but will need firm but fair handling to start and someone that is going to take the time to get to know how she ticks.

Located Horndean Hampshire.

Buddy 15.2 Quality Cob

Ideal hunting/show potential or equally a super fun allrounder. Buddy is a real gentlemen who I believe hasn’t had the best of starts. 

He can be shy and nervous of new people but once you have his trust you have a best friend for life. 

Buddy rides in a soft round shape with three balanced paces, he jumps absolutely anything you put in front of him, goes off any stride, proving brave and bold. 

He loves hacking, will go first or last, alone or in company never strong or silly. Doesn’t buck rear or spin. Can be sensitive to the leg at first (mainly in the school) but nothing nasty just a little jumpy and this is worked out of him within the first 5 minutes.

For this reason he is not suitable for novices.

Sweet sensitive loving horse just looking for an experienced home and someone to love.

He loves spending time with people to build a bond and wants to put his trust into someone that loves him.

Is good to do in all ways, load box groom bath clip shoe etc.

  • 4 years

  • Very laid back and easy going type
  • A gorgeous personality
  • Showing loads of scope and ability

Stunning Irish 2017 gelding standing at approximately 17hh.

Prince is a very rare and very hard to find type, a complete head turner with such a kind gentle attitude to go with it. Prince acts and rides older than his years, he's a very laid back and easy going type, he isn't a spooky or stressy type, very cool, calm and collected.

He has a gorgeous personality and he's so kind, a total gentle giant. Prince has three very well established paces on the flat considering his age, and his transitions are fantastic. He's an armchair ride, very slow rocking horse canter and a pure confidence giving type, instantly makes you feel at ease.

Prince is snaffle mouthed, working well in a shape and he's so willing and easy to ride! Prince has seen hounds, cross country schooled and with us he's jumped a full set of coloured fillers, proven to be completely unflappable and easy! Showing loads of scope and ability.

Prince is a gentleman to hack, on the buckle! When alone or in company. Used to farm vehicles and heavy traffic, again, a very easy and simple ride.

Overall such a brilliant horse for his age and he will grow in to something wonderful! He's been faultless from the get go and so sweet.

Open to any vet or trainer.
