One of the main issues that RDA groups face is finding an Equine to suit the needs of the participants in their group.

We are regularly contacted with offers of Equines that are ‘the ideal RDA horse or pony’ when actually what is ideal for one group may not be for the next. We are trying to move away from the stereotypical view that RDA Equines are elderly and somewhat static, our horses and ponies need to be fit, healthy and athletic to cope with the lifestyle in an RDA group.

They can range from smaller, forward going ponies to weight carrying cobs and can take part in a range of disciplines from Riding to Carriage Driving, Vaulting to Show Jumping and Endurance.

If you contact an RDA Group about your Equine please be prepared to fill in an Equine Initial Interest Form which will ask you many questions about your horses’ temperament, health history, experience and lifestyle. Many groups will prefer to have an equine on trial to make sure they are suitable for the job.

For long term loans and purchases they will also be required to have a Pre-Purchase Examination.

If you think your equine has what it takes, please contact one of the groups below.

  • Open to clinical finding on a vetting, less than perfect x-rays, blemishes etc.
  • Not fussed on colour, sex etc
  • Tolerance of being loved and adored

After a failed vetting I am still looking for a horse. I have a sensible wish list (listed below)

  • Ideally I’m looking for a PRE but would consider something else, however it needs to be a leg in each corner type, because I’ve eaten too many mince pies every Christmas and beyond since 2009!
  • I categorically do not want anything bigger than 16.3hh and yes I will bring a measuring stick!
  • I do not care what colour it is I will adapt my matchy wardrobe as necessary.
  • I am open to a blemish, splints, curbs, scars etc and can live with some clinical findings, such as a failed vetting or xrays which are less perfect providing full information is disclosed
  • They have to be a lovely person to do, because the reality is I’ll spend longer loving it and getting it ready than I will riding it.
  • Minimum age is 5, I would like something I can get on and ride now BUT for an expectational horse I might go younger.

Now for the tricky bit...

  • I would like something SAFE, FORWARD and NON SPOOKY. This is non negotiable I do not want to ride something that is actively looking for Pokémons.
  • I’m not a brave rider, so giving it a kick or a smack, is not in my riding repertoire.
  • I do want to compete, so looking for something with 3 active and correct paces, but it does not need to move like Valegro because let’s face it I couldn’t sit one side of it!
  • I have a reasonable budget but I’m not a lottery winner!!!!! I would happily loan, lease, even produce for someone.
  • I can offer an amazing home, with the very highest standard of love, care and commitment and am based with a professional rider, however I want to ride it not get him on it for three hours before I can have a sit!.

I know my next horse is out there waiting to find me, lease drop me a message if you think you have my new best friend.

The pictures are of me on my husband's horse who is absolutely lovely but just too much for me - it is like driving a Ferrari on the school run... part terrified, part loving it! He is a 16.1hh Baroque type PRE which gives an idea of the sort of stamp I need.

  • Middleweight stamp
  • 16hh-16.3hh
  • Easy to do
  • Minimum age of 5
  • 3 correct paces
  • Forward, Safe and Non-spooky
