Happy Hackers: 15hh & Over

Class 1 ID Mare for Showing, hunting and dressage horse, potential allrounder

Brilliant safe hack and dressage horse with masses of potential for showing.

Ref #: 262612
  • Safe hack.
  • Has hunted a season and a half in previous home.
  • Would do extremely well showing.
£10,000 ovno
  • Irish Draught
  • Grey
  • Mare
  • 8 years
  • 16.3 hands
  • Safe hack.
  • Has hunted a season and a half in previous home.
  • Would do extremely well showing.

Isla is a lovely mare, brilliant to hack both alone and in company.

Bought her from a purely hunting home, and have been schooling her for dressage. She has come really far in the last 6 months of ownership, however I have health problems which mean I cannot be the kind of rider she needs to take her further. Happy to discuss further.

She has masses of potential for showing, can go fabulously well and is easy to take out to shows/fun rides/clinics. Have schooled over coloured poles and has been xc schooled and taken part in a hunter trial.

Genuine reason for sale. She is still green schooling and can have a spook with me when schooling at home (never unseating anyone). Perfectly behaved when out and about. Needs a forward thinking rider who rides from the seat, and keeps her focus, at which point she schools beautifully.

Ideal home would be one with plenty of variety and getting out and about, with a competent rider.

Class 1 Irish Draught (graded two weeks ago) so an excellent prospect for breeding.

  • 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.

Lovely laid back ISH gelding looking for a new home due to lack of time.

Horses like him are so hard to find for a realistic price in this current market.

He has done all low level activities. He is fab to hack alone and in company. Been at same yard for last 3 yrs. Brought by the yard owner off the breeder as a 3 yr old so all history known. He is good to do in everyway. He has no vices and will live out all year if needed.

Has done well at low level dressage with his lovely paces. Looking for similar home as he is no world beater just a genuine honest horse! There is one negative with him and reflected in price he does have flat feet like TB feet so for last 2 yrs he has had pads on front feet which helps him on Stoney ground etc. So if you can continue with the same you have yourself a very good horse!

Based Staffs . Please phone for further details. Owner giving up due to work commitments. He can be ridden each day or once a week.

Ice arrived 4 weeks ago and we have quietly been getting to know him. He is a very affectionate loving boy who loves a fuss and is a pleasure to work with.

To ride he has all the basics walk, trot and canter and good scope although still finding his technique. Hacks out alone and in company not a problem. Ice was broken as a 4yo then turned away due to other commitments , he was brought back into work at the start of the year and has done a few fun rides and training shows in Ireland.

He was foot perfect on the fun ride we took him on last week and could not be faulted from start to finish. He would be a brilliant hunt / Marshall horse.

Ice was nervous to mount when he first arrived but has settled in fine and now is not a problem - he will need an experienced rider to bring him on and bring him to his full potential. He really is the sweetest boy.

**Please note Ice was vetted and has passed flexion ect but has 4 sarcoids **

Open to any inspections

Tentatively looking for a new home for Angel.

Angel is an absolutely stunning horse who has a real "look at me" presence. She's uphill and big moving combined with a real athleticism. She has got an extremely genuine, honest temperament and is a pleasure to have around. She's 100% in all aspects of her daily management.

Due to her size she isn't suitable for a complete novice as she's quite a lot of horse and can be quite heavy and forward in the contact especially out hacking. 

I feel Angel would be most suited to a dressage home for a competent amateur who wants a kind easy going horse combined with classy elegance. When she's ridden more in balance in the school she's much lighter in the contact. She's completely malleable, lovely off the aids and is a real pleasure to school.

Angel isn't spooky or sharp in anyway and has good lateral work and consistent big paces. She's evented up to 100 consistently, has evented and done unaffiliated dressage to novice regularly with 70% plus scores.

I feel at this point in her life that hunting would possibly be a little demanding hence why I am not advertising her as a hunter. She is 100% to hack alone and in company, up to date with farrier, dentist and physio.

I have had to come to this difficult decision to find Angel a new home after 6 months.... after I managed to find my dream horse, I find was devastated to find out that I needed an invasive operation and I am now rehabilitating and have had to accept that I wont be able to care for a horse myself for some time. 

I feel that Angel would be entirely wasted in the field waiting for me, she has so much to offer and I know she would much prefer to be pampered with her home comforts. A friend is kindly kept Angel ticking along for me so she can be tried.

Please no time wasters or joy riders, this is an incredibly hard sale of an exceptional horse.

To mature full up 16.2hh chestnut 3yr old registered ID gelding

(Registered name is YFH Young Finn)

By Fintan Himself X Westmeath Lad

Lovely young chap who will go on and make a top class RC horse, hunter, or super family friend and hack. Finn is currently unbroken and untried but has been well handled and will be no problem to get going. Unfortunately due to my recently broken leg, I have been forbidden to start doing breakers and really green youngsters, otherwise would quite happily start him myself as he's very easy!  He’s a nice, honest person and will go far in whatever he does and will make someone very happy.

With us he has been lightly mouthed and lunged and we have loose jumped him once, he shows promise over a pole and is naturally careful and quite clever, learning from his mistakes and wanting to leave fences up. Finn is a lovely model with a good front , I can see him being the type of horse you would happily hunt all day. He's spent the past 18 months living on a farm that caters for animal assisted learning for adults with special needs, so is very friendly and loves people.

A really smart blank canvas ready for someone to put their own stamp on. We can arrange for him to be started under saddle at buyers expense if required, he could be started now or left further to mature the choice is yours!

Seen at livery.

Beautifully produced 15hh Bay 4yo Mare Lulu

Lulu is a very easy going straightforward little mare who has been produced slowly by a petite 14yo girl. Lulu is incredibly willing and turns her hoof to anything that we have asked of her and with this has been a very quick learner.

She rides beautifully in the school with a lovely snaffle mouth, never keen or strong. She is totally unfazed by any coloured fence, fillers or Rustic/Xc fences. Very honest and never refuses and goes off any stride. Lulu hacks alone or in company and is brilliant in traffic - she is great in open spaces and is happy to sit at the back or take the lead.

Although she is only 4 she has a very mature brain and is never hot, fizzy or spooky. Lulu hasn’t been over cooked for her age but also isn’t green as grass, absolutely everything has been taken at her own pace and she is progressing immensely! Lulu has been to training shows and arena eventing where she produced beautiful clear rounds.

Lulu loads, travels and stands on the box perfectly. Fantastic for farrier, dentist and recently had her first clip which she was super chilled about. Not a lot fazes this little lady and she will make the most fantastic Pc, Rc, Hunting, safe all rounder and would be a true asset to someone’s yard.

No vices what so ever to be disclosed. She has been an absolute pleasure to produce and is now looking for her forever home to continue her education.

Clean limbed, no lumps, bumps or sarcoids. Open to vetting.

Due to her age she will not be ridden by big groups of people (i.e 3 kids and extended family out for a joy ride) but open to a knowledgeable trainer. She is a very easy, push button laid back ride.

She is a push button ride, anyone’s rides and can be handled by anyone
