Handsome traditional cob gelding for sale

  • Coloured

  • Shown successfully at local level
  • Moves beautifully, has potential to show to a good level

Oreo is a lovely, chunky young cob with a sweet nature. A pleasure to handle, very easy to do in all respects. A good doer, and is currently barefoot.

Up to date with jabs, worming, teeth, physio and farrier.

He is well schooled on the flat, and will happily pop a jump, although we have not done a lot of jumping with him. He loves his hacking, alone or in company, in front or behind, he does not hot up in open spaces or when he is in company and he is excellent in the heaviest of traffic.

Oreo is a straight forward ride, and as such is a confidence giver. He is not a kick along plod but goes nicely from the leg in all paces but does not rush.

Easy to catch, load, clip etc. 

We would love him to go to a lovely family home who will love and enjoy him as we have. A showing home would be lovely but somewhere where he will have a lot of fun and love is the most important thing.

He will be a super fun ride for a child or small adult.

He comes with some tack and his rugs.

This has been a very difficult decision but a change in circumstances is the reason for sale.

We have lots more pictures and videos if you would like to know more then please get in touch

  • At the Island Riding Centre we offer horse riding weekends and midweek short riding breaks with guests able to stay in our luxury self-catering accommodation and enjoy the equestrian centre facilities on site.

"No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle"
Winston Churchill

Enjoying a milder climate and more sunshine hours than most other parts of the UK has made the Isle of Wight a popular destination for holidays and short breaks. Add in hundreds of miles of off-road bridleways, spectacular landscapes and dozens of sandy beaches the IOW is the perfect destination for a UK horse riding holiday.

Our two equestrian holiday packages are flexible to suit riders of any ability from complete beginners to novices and advanced riders with a choice of on-site riding lessons, including tuition in dressage and show jumping. A safe on-site trail ride is available for riders of any age or beach and trail rides which can be guided or self-guided for guests bringing their own horse or choosing to hire one of our horses. See below for details of what the riding holidays include.

Beach Riding on the Isle of Wight

Being centrally located on the Island, there is a good choice of different beach rides within easy reach of the riding centre. Trips to the beach are organised around tide times and include Ryde, Yaverland, Yarmouth and Bembridge beaches. Early starters can enjoy a full cooked breakfast at their destination whilst afternoon rides can be accompanied by a cream tea.

Trail Rides on the Isle of Wight

Large parts of the Island are designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and what better way to see it than from horseback. Our trail rides are a great way to explore the Isle of Wight and make friends within a group ride. Riders of any ability can participate with experienced guides on hand and safe horses happy to follow the rest of the group. For the more experienced riders, we are happy to provide bridleway maps allowing you to choose your own rides.

Bring Your Own Horse

The Isle of Wight is easily accessible for horse boxes and lorries (with special ferry travel rates available) and we are happy to provide DIY, part or full livery for the duration of your stay, so why not give your horse a holiday too!

Learn to Ride

Our horse riding holidays will give beginners and novices the chance to learn to ride and develop their skills in a relaxed, friendly environment with lessons from our qualified instructors on horses and ponies that will be matched to the riders’ ability.

Riding Lessons

Following an initial assessment, our instructors will tailor lessons to suit your goals which can include dressage and show jumping tuition or developing your confidence in the saddle. Our ABRS approved riding school on the Isle of Wight is staffed by our team of experienced, qualified instructors. We are a fully insured riding school and all of out staff are first aid trained, DBS checked and qualified. We offer disabled and wheelchair-friendly riding lessons and cater for all ages and skill levels.

Accommodation

Our luxury self-catering accommodation can cater for between 2 and 12 guests at a time so groups, families and individual riders are all welcome. Some of our cottages have been purpose built to cater for disabled guests, with downstairs bedrooms and wet-rooms suitable for wheelchair users. As an RDA accessible kite mark centre, we have accessible riding facilities and qualified instructors on site too.

Guests can enjoy a continental breakfast in their accommodation or the occasional cooked breakfast when out on an early morning beach ride. In the evenings we have a selection of local eateries close by or why not enjoy a beachfront cocktail or cosy country pub around the Island.

The Isle of Wight

The Isle of Wight has lots of activities for non-riders too including golf, cycling, walking, sailing, clay pigeon shooting, go-karting, paragliding and various water sports. Visitor attractions start right next door at Monkey Haven or a short walk to Butterfly World. A short drive takes you to Robin Hill, Blackgang Chine, Carisbrooke Castle, Osborne House, Godshill Model Village, The Needles Landmark Attraction, Isle of Wight Zoo, Amazon World. The list goes on… Why not try the Isle of Wight Steam Railway or even go on a dinosaur hunt……OR just relax on one of the award winning beaches.

For our wheelchair users and those with limited mobility, read our blog post on exploring the accessible Isle of Wight.

Facilities

Opened in 2017 our facilities include a 60m by 40m outdoor fibrewax sand school and an on site off-road hacking track. Towards the end of 2018, we will be launching our indoor riding arena which will include a café, restaurant, shop and classroom as well as a fibrewax 60m by 25m sandschool for year round all-weather horse riding lessons.

So why not give a UK riding holiday a go and explore the Isle of Wight from horseback!

  • Gelding
  • 9 years
  • 14.2 hands
  • Handsome and willing, easy to do
  • Kind temperament, loves lots of fuss
  • Looking for a hacking home, good in traffic alone / company

I am looking to find this super pony a 5 star forever home where he will be loved and appreciated for what he can still do well. It is in his best interests he doesn't jump or school or be ragged about (due to old injury, 100% sound and has been for 3 years) so no irresponsible riders need apply! I would say he is too forward going for a novice.

In no hurry to sell, the right home is of upmost importance.

May suit small competent adult looking for a new friend to enjoy hacking, pleasure rides and possibly some showing as a very nice pony? Also he is a very kind companion.

Sad sale but he really deserves more attention, a job and his own 'special person', only for sale as no longer have a suitably sized groom to keep him going.

Up to date vacs/teeth and currently shod in front. No vices.

Price includes full kit and some rugs.

Please no time wasters or inexperienced, he is not a first pony.

Archie was a companion until September 2018, having not had a lot of handling etc he’s settled into working life well, been trimmed by the farrier, teeth done, fully vaccinated, bathed etc.... he’s lunging well and is ready for the next stage.

I bought him as a project but sadly lack of time has forced me to make this hard decision to sell him, please no novice owners, he needs a confident individual that will then inspire confidence in him and further his education.

  • Kind natured in an out of the stable
  • Well used to children, prams and dogs

I have owned jazz for two years, brought straight from breeder.

Jazz is fully registered Welsh Section D mare born 2011. Black with four whites. She is snaffle mouth with me all the time mainly in sand school and in a 20 acre field, she is not at all strong.

Jazz is kind natured in an out of the stable, well used to children, prams and dogs. good to catch and show. Jazz is eager to please in her schooling. I have never attempted to jump her as i don't own any jumps so i cant say how she is to jump, she is a blank canvas in that respect.

Jazz has been turned away all winter and has come back in, is rugged and has started light work. She was out for 6 months + got her in, tacked up and she didn't put a foot wrong, she isn't one which needs riding every day or lunging. Although due to her low mileage isn't a kick along plod. She would suit competitive teen or small adult as she is approx 14.1hh.

Jazz comes with a snaffle bridle, outdoor medium weight combo rug, stable rug, travel rug and a combo show rug and a brand new lycra hood plus any boots etc I find.

Genuine reason for sale, 5* home only, no dealers please

Tinkerbell is a lovely pony, who is easy to do in all ways, box, shoe, hack alone or in company she's what I call Bombproof.

She is 14.2, skewbald, 11 year old Coblet.

Tinks has 3 lovely paces, fantastic jump, can excel in any discipline. She holds her self, easy off the leg,

She has turned her hoofs to everything with us, she had hunted / teamchased / huntertrialed / show jumped / dressage / pleasure rides. She is always snaffle mouthed and is always safe and sensible, and is so comfy to ride.

Tinkerbell really gives everything her all there isn't many ponies out there like her!

This is the hardest sale of the best pony I've ever had the pleasure of owning. The only reason for sale is the lack of time I can offer her one to one, due to having others and also a yard to run & a full time job

Ruby

148 pony

Ref #: 203052
  • Fantastic little pony
  • Safe in traffic
  • Hacks out in company or alone
£2,495 ovno
  • Cob
  • Bay
  • Mare
  • 7 years
  • 14.2 hands (AHC)
  • Fantastic little pony
  • Safe in traffic
  • Hacks out in company or alone

Ruby is a fantastic little character and will be sadly missed, she was purchased for my wife who is a very nervous novice rider. The idea was to hack out with our daughter on her pony which has never happened, have days out at the beach which has never happened, and all the rest of the dreams that go with owning a pony. We have several competition ponies which our daughter rides and to keep them all in top condition we have a groom who also daily exercises Ruby. 

In the time we have had her she has never been lame or injured, she happily walks trots and canters around our arena or hacks out in company or alone. Ruby is up to date with all vaccinations, teeth and shoes. Ruby is a young pony who is in a fabulous condition/health she has had five star treatment whilst she has been with us and wanted for nothing.

Sadly my wife has come to the conclusion her childhood dream of her own pony is no longer for her Ruby has never put a foot wrong, we have bought every rug, blanket, saddle, bridle you name it !!!! all of which will be going with her. 

She needs to go to a five star home or would be absolutely perfect in a riding school, she really is the quietest pony you could own, we have never jumped her or had her clipped in fact we have never had her in a horse box, she happily is turned out and is never a problem to bring in, in fact she waits at the gate for you, we turn her out with the other ponies and have no issues at all.

Ruby loves to be groomed ect ect and is perfectly safe in all ways she is micro chipped and has her passport.

When purchased we had Ruby vetted she passed without problem. We spent weeks looking at all kinds of problem ponies before by accident we found Ruby.

Sad sale but my wife is busy with other sports and ponies are still a commitment even with a full time groom, we paid a lot more than we are asking without the full wardrobe so no silly offers she can happily stay here.

  • Lovely allrounder
  • Very sad sale after 1 ½ years as I have now out-grown him
  • Confidence giving and easy to handle (load, catch, wash etc)

We have come to the heart-breaking decision to sell our beloved pony Cobbles as he has very sadly been outgrown. He is only for sale as we need the next step up.

Cobbles has been with us for 1 ½ years now and has given me heaps and heaps of confidence. As my first pony he has taken me from being a nervous rider to confident in all disciplines going out to shows regularly.

He has competed in show jumping up to 70cm and in preliminary dressage, showing lots of improvement. He has been out cross country schooling and we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

He has also recently taken me to my first event at 70cm and was a true gentleman. He is not spooked by any fillers or jumps.

Cobbles is good on the ground, he will stand being groomed, is perfect to catch, and good with the farrier (no stable vices).

He is great to hack in open fields and good to hack on roads. He now just needs a new best friend to have fun with and be loved as much as we do.

5* home is essential as we would love to keep in contact with the new owners as he is very special to us.

The home is very important so please no time wasters.
