  • 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.

  • She is the cob that can!!
  • An absolutely beautiful well marked top quality mare with a the most beautiful mane, tail and feather
  • She is a bit of a unicorn in a cobs body…

15hh Black and White 9yrs old mare - she is the cob that can!! An absolutely beautiful well marked top quality mare with a the most beautiful mane, tail and feather. She is a chunky girl with plenty of bone and bum and the most amazing kind nature. She is a bit of a unicorn in a cobs body…

She will take any rider from a tiny tiny to an older more frail rider and everyone in between, she would be a perfect family friend to do a bit of everything. She is just brilliant to ride, the true definition of a snaffle mouth or even a head collar, safe and sensible but will go nicely off the leg up the gears with just a little nudge and keep constant. Not a kick along cob, just a really pleasant ride that a nervous or novice ride would feel safe but an experience rider will enjoy. She is well schooled on the flat in all three paces and would excel in the show ring. She is happy to jump small fences either show jumps or cross country jumps, in her usual land back manner. 

She is brilliant to hack out, both alone or in company and in any traffic - she is unphased by the largest scary vehicles and just plods along on the buckle end. Canter alone or in company keeping a steady rhythm and easy to pull up as soon as you think stop, she is just a pleasure to take out for a hack in the sun. 

This beautiful girl is such a favourite girl on the yard, easy to do in every way and no hang ups whatsoever. She lives either in or out, by herself or with others, she is so uncomplicated. Easy to shoe, worm, clip, perfect to travel in either a horse box or a trailer and comes to call to catch. She is trimmed, wormed, passported and ready to go!

Lots of videos and photos available by What App.

Open to any vet or trainer. 

Delivery can be arranged through out the UK and Worldwide if required.

She is sound and vice free - first to see the special unicorn will buy!

WONDERFUL ALL-ROUNDER & SHOW PROSPECT 14.2hh WELSH COB

£3,500 ono
  • Cob
  • Piebald
  • Gelding
  • 10 years
  • 14.2 hands
  • He has shown so much potential, he has amazing movement in the school and absolutely loves to jump!

We are looking for a very special home for the wonderful Harvey, he would be an ideal second pony or a great project for someone to bring on

I personally ride Harvey twice a week, he is such a quick learner and very eager to please. During his time with us he has shown so much potential, he has amazing movement in the school and absolutely loves to jump!

This is a very sad sale but the decision has been made that he needs a more experienced handler since he can be challenging on the ground and is green hacking out

He was brought for a novice rider/ complete beginner and they are not quite the right match, this being said he does not put a hoof wrong in the school and has taught his owner how to ride from scratch.

His personal details:
- 14.2hh Welsh Cob
- 10 years old (although his teeth say he is more likely to be 6 or 7)
- Piebald with stunning markings, would do very well showing!
- He is barefoot and great with the farrier
- Good to clip
- He is very good with the vet and having his teeth done and is up to date with all vaccinations
- Easy to catch
- We have done a lot of natural horsemanship ground work with him and he loves to join up and play with you in the school
- He is green hacking out so looks to his rider for confidence, hence why he is not suitable for a novice rider

£3,500 Ono, genuine enquires only please as this is a very sad sale for this much loved pony!

If you have any other questions about Harvey or would like to come and see him please do not hesitate to contact myself (Holly) on 07881 021791 or Julie on 07788 265161.

Asby Mills Desert Dakota

13.3hh, 6yo Traditional Skewbald gelding.

Big moving traditional, broken under saddle and needs further education. Had hacked out a couple of times in company and was an utter sweetheart. Still a bit green, but just needs more experience.

Dakota is a very sweet natured, loving pony with a massive heart. He is an absolute pleasure to handle, load, pick feed out, catch ect…

He loves one on one handling and would make a super family pony with his temperament.

He would definitely be a candidate for the SFAS Traditional cob qualifier for HOYS, as he really does have the conformation and movement to get him there.

Dakota would also make a top class driven pony, although he hasn`t done any driven work- he would be suited for it with his willing and calm nature.

Dakota would benefit going down the TGCA route. He has always won his classes and been in the championship. He is qualified this year for NCPA POYS- Plus he has his gold ticket to the £1000 final. EQUIFEST and TSR.

Results 2019:
BSPA Northern 1st Novice In-Hand. 2nd Traditional mature.
NCPA Eastern Spectacular: 1st Coloured Mature, 2nd Traditional Cob + Reserve Champion.
NPS area 4: 1st BSPA Trad/Nat Mature + Reserve BSPA Champion.
NCPA Yorkshire: 1st CHAPS Trad/ Native Mature + Reserve Champion.

Home is far more important than price. Price will include saddle and bridles. Please NO NOVICES- although this pony has a calm and gentle nature, he does need a competent rider to further his education.

Selling on behalf of best friend, he is currently stabled with myself. Absolutely NO DEALERS, JOY RIDERS or LWVB.

Super Show Cob (open to sensible offers)


Ref #: 196305
  • Straight moving with 9.5" of bone
  • Fantastic personality and character, loves to learn
  • Will be the next show ring superstar
£2,750 ono
  • Cob
  • Piebald
  • Gelding
  • 5 years
  • 15.1 hands
  • Straight moving with 9.5" of bone
  • Fantastic personality and character, loves to learn
  • Will be the next show ring superstar

Rising 5 year old show cob gelding, broken last year and did a bit of everything, we turned him away for the winter and I'm just struggling for time to bring him back into work, so reluctantly offering him for sale.

During the summer he was fully walk, trot, canter, hacking out alone and popping small jumps. He is a forward going ride but has good brakes, snaffle mouth, great to box, clip and with farrier (although barefoot so can't comment on shoes but I'm sure he'd be no problem), first to you in the field and loves a good fuss.

At last measure he was 153cm (15hh) so should make a full up 15.1/155cm by full maturity.

He is being sold for £2750 as he stands, if I get a little more time I may bring him back into work but the price would rise to around £5500 as he's a super stamp and will go a long way in the right hands.

He is turned away at grass, there are no facilities to try him as he's now been brought home, he was ridden once before he was brought home on 13/04/19, this was the first time being ridden since October and he was fantastic, still remembered walk, trot, canter and went for a walk down the lane on his own, video available of this. He is a genuine easy project and you'll be out showing in a matter of weeks.

If you call and I do not answer I may be stuck in a meeting so please pop me a text and I will call you back.

Peggy is a 6 year old mare. She is very well marked, a really good mahogany brown and white colour, plenty of hair.

Broken over the Winter, hacks out, goes in the school but obviously still green, but is now ready to start her career.

Looking for a kind home where she will be loved and adored!

Sadly for sale as needing to move onto horses. Oliver is 14hh and for us has been a dream Pony Club pony. He is 7 years old, we have owned him since a three year old. Broken by his young jockey, he will do anything you ask of him.

He hunts, jumps confidently at competitions at 85/95 and jumps at home at 1 - 1m 10.

He won the dressage champs at Aintree and has been competing at Novice level.

He is fantastic on a hack and is regularly hacked home on his own to our back garden through the worst possible traffic! 

He has given our daughter a real passion for hunting and jumping, something I never thought would happen. 

I am not advertising him as a novice ride, he is a fun pony with life in him! He loves his job and is keen to get going when you get on and displays his positivity when you do! There is no bad bone in his body, I just don't want him being tried by people expecting a kick along. He has a fantastic trainable attitude and I really believe in the right hands would continue up the levels in dressage.

A dream to handle, load, clip etc. I trust this pony implicitly and really dread trying to replace him. He has now started taking The best is still to come from him, he would easily affiliate in any sphere.

He deserves now to go onto an amazing home that will learn from him as much as we have.

We've been informed of a email scam commonly coming from a "Martha Gough" marthagough011@gmail.com and "Mary Susan" with an outlook email address, asking a list of questions & offering to transfer a deposit and an over payment for shipping. Please ignore this email and if you have time report it to Action Fraud- https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/ . For more details of the over payment scam please click HERE
