Cobs and Heavy Horses: Traditionals

Sweet potential allrounder

Super teenager horse to produce

Ref #: 241384
  • Lovely markings for show
  • Sweet & not Marish
£2,500
  • Cob
  • Coloured
  • Mare
  • 6 years
  • 14.2 hands
  • Lovely markings for show
  • Sweet & not Marish

Lovely 14.2hh 6 year old mare. Takes the leg well as rider in photo 5’8.

Rosie is a lovely little soul. Previously has just been a hack horse. Has a sweet sensitive nature so wouldn’t suit a big heavy rider that would pull her around.

Rosies schooling is coming on lovely. To start with she was green in the canter (typical baby, fall into trot on corners etc) but never nasty. And this is improving each ride as she gets a little more balanced. She now canters laps and does 20metres circles. She has done trotting poles with a 12 year old in the arena.

We have taken her on her xcountry and popped her over little coloured fences , she’s sweet about it but just hasn’t done much of it at all.

She has hacked out alone and in company, and on the busy road . Showing no issues.

Would make a great horse for someone to put their own stamp on as she’s a willing blank canvas that hasn’t been ruined, I’m sure she will turn her hoof to anything and will make a lovely partnership with someone.

Really sweet in and out of the stable. Loves a fuss and causes no problems.

Wouldn’t suit a nervous/beginner rider as she’s still green in arena.

  • Lovely little coloured mare, with presence. Sure to go far in the show ring.
  • She is a fantastic hack and goes first/last, alone and in company. Good in traffic.

We have taken her show jumping and cross country schooling, were she gave everything a go. She isn’t going to be a world beater in either of these disciplines, but she had a fun time.

Could produce a stunning dressage test or show with a bit more work. It’s all there, she just has not done much work in the arena.

She will excel in the show ring as she has presence and nicely put together.

Please no novices, this little mare was broken late due to no fault of her own so she is still learning the ropes.

Videos available.

Based near Pulborough.

PLEASE call or WhatsApp only if interested! We have poor reception at home and texts don’t always come through.

Wanted - Approx 15.2hh Happy Hacker/Family Horse

Wonderful Family Home Awaits A Safe & Trustworthy Character

Ref #: 236909
  • Approx 15.2hh. Middle/Heavyweight/Cob Type, Gelding Preferred.
  • Experienced, Kind, Family Home Offered. Happy To Supply References.
  • To Enjoy Hacking, Pleasure Rides & Low Level Schooling.
  • Approx 15.2hh. Middle/Heavyweight/Cob Type, Gelding Preferred.
  • Experienced, Kind, Family Home Offered. Happy To Supply References.
  • To Enjoy Hacking, Pleasure Rides & Low Level Schooling.

I have recently, very sadly, had to retire my wonderful horse due to his ongoing health issues so I am now searching to find another lovely character to join our family & to fill his shoes (he prefers his slippers these days)!! I have been out of the saddle for over a year so I am looking for a horse who is safe & steady & will take care of me.... I'm not as brave as I once was & I don't bounce like I used to, I'm also not as light as I once was so I would like a medium/heavyweight cob type.

Our 8 year old daughter has an amazing little cob who she enjoys hacking & taking part in forest/pleasure rides & beach trips, therefore, I am searching for a horse who would enjoy the same adventures so we can have fun together (& I can leave the bike at home)!

I am not looking for a world beater or the type who needs exercising most days to keep sane, just a lovely, sweet character who will fit in to our very calm lifestyle at home. Must be trustworthy to handle on the ground as the children are often involved in helping with their daily care.

I will also be hacking out on my own at times so he/she must be sensible when out without company. We live in a rural area so meet very little traffic, however, we do occasionally meet farm vehicles so must be sensible in this situation.

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

Norfolk based.

Many thanks for reading.

Norman (Tambrooke Mr Brightside) part bred welsh. Sire The Scoundrel, Dam Hendraws Gwen,

Norman has the Wow Factor Exciting prospect for future ridden classes

he is a good straight mover with excellent conformation real presence with fantastic head and neck carriage and plenty of bone he is a solid type with a leg at each corner, he has a beautiful head and has half a blue eye on the near side. Stands approx. 14.2hh

He is a kind a friendly chap that is easy to do, He was professionally backed as a 3 yr old when we bought him last year and has been to a few in hand shows with us, and although we are not showing people he won everything he entered, including supreme champion at Epworth which was a qualifier for chaps, he was been quietly ridden out then turned away over winter and has been given time to mature he was brought back into work at the beginning of the year with a view to showing him on the ridden circuit, but for obvious reasons this has not happened, so he has had the summer off and is now just started back into work ready for next year. He is hacking out in company, and his flat work is coming along nicely, he is popping coloured and natural fences and seems to enjoy this.

With his previous owner/ breeder he was Part bred young stock champion TOYS. He was reserve supreme at the Norse welsh show ,1st at the eastern welsh show in the part bred welsh class and 4th at Kent county 2018

chaps passport and over stamped with WPCA, BSPA, TGCA

He is only for sale as we have decided to concentrate on our event horses and cannot do justice to both, and he too special to be a happy hacker. Due to his age no novices or nervous riders, 10 Star home required.

  • Brave as a lion to hack - unfazable!
  • 3 lovely correct paces, not at all choppy
  • Forgiving ride, perfect blank canvas to produce

Absolutely stunning inside & out!  You do not see 4 year olds like him often. This genuine & clever! We have thrown him into all sorts of situations like hacking in the heaviest of traffic to going out x country. Freddie never says no, and you can guarantee what ever you teach one day, he knows it by the next!

To hack hes unflappable. Whether alone or in company, it’s like he’s been doing it for years and years. Goes past artic lorries, diggers working and also landfill machinery!

Schooling wise , he’s obviously very much a blank canvas. He can walk, trot & canter, large around the arena and 20m circles. As forgiving as he is, he isn’t going to suit a novice rider in the school as he still needs further education, he would be ok for a novice, if they had lots on experienced help though.

Freddie is absolutely stunning, blemish free, and would sure to take home rosettes in the showing world.

He would suit a variety of homes, from someone wanting a safe hack to go across the forest, to someone wanting to produce a special cob to do a bit of everything!

Lovely boy to have around and will beadly missed!
