  • He is not a first pony but a very competitive PC / NSEA / Games pony
  • He has excelled in all spheres

Coco is a force to be reckoned with!  He is a very special pony and I want to make sure he goes to the right home, so this advert is completely honest.

There is not a nasty bone in Coco's body but he is keen and enthusiastic and wants to win as much as you do!

We have had Coco for 5 years. In that time there have been many spills and thrills! BUT he has taught both of my children to ride beautifully. He has taught them to ride with feel, to not hang on to the front end, to ride a beautiful corner in the SJ ring and how to sit quietly!

Coco just needs managing! He cannot be dragged in from the field on a Saturday and be expected to go out and be calm and quiet! I have him on a calmer and I lunge him before my children ride him

Once you have done that he will do anything and everything you would like him to.

With us he has taken part and excelled in all Pony Club and NSEA activities, hunted with bloodhounds, hacks, beach rides and one area he loves is Games.

Coco would ideally suit a gun ho boy who wants to go out and win - I know there is someone out there to take on this super cool pony - who all the judges love and has won more rosettes than any pony I know!!

I have thousands of photo's and video's!

Only for sale as outgrown - however he takes the leg as my daughter has ridden him up until the age of 10 years.

  • Has won all NSEA SJ competitions and Champs up to 60cm
  • Won Mini Challenge at Hickstead
  • Won Pony Club Camp 3 years running (ODE)
  • Has won numerous Show Jumping competitions up to 65cm and been placed in ODE's and Hunter Trials

He is a very attractive pony, imported from the continent in 2017. He has a really sweet nature, being good to box, shoe and clip, he travels well. He hacks out alone and in company and is good in traffic. He is ridden in a snaffle.

He has a good mouth and three correct paces, exhibiting excellent flatwork. He has hunted with the Bedale and loves cross country fences. He is sane and sensible in a show ring.

In just the last 2 months he has won at Show / Cross Country, won and been second in BS Just for Schools showjumping, has helped his NSEA team win, being placed individual first, and was placed individual 2nd in Arena Eventing. He was placed second in Bedale Hunt Gate Jumping and performed brilliantly against the horses in the Hunt Race. He was even pulled out 4th in a large Working Hunter Novice class this week! He will turn his hoof to anything!

Sadly for sale as the rider is now 6ft so desperately needs a horse!

He would make a wonderful schoolmaster; being safe, lovely natured and very competitive. Come and try him, you'll love him!

Eye-catching gelding with lots of potential

  • Has attended pony club rallies & camp

12.2hh/128cm, fully registered part-bred welsh palomino gelding, 9yo. (Sire - Downland Ambrose).

Flicka is a flashy pony and oozes presence, he has 3 correct rhymical paces and works into a light contact. He is easy to get into an outline and is responsive to the leg/seat, snaffle mouthed at all times.

Flicka is well established in the school, he will ride walk-canter transitions and quick to collect in the downward transitions. He is proving more than capable of lateral work and has recently learnt to leg-yield.

He would make a very smart dressage prospect for a competitive young jockey. Recently placed 4th at Prelim level in a big class of horses with promising comments from the judges.

Flicka loves jumping and is established around 60 & 70cm tracks with placings at unaff level and scope to go higher.

He has primarily show jumped but also is proved willing across country too and would certainly turn his hoof to any discipline!

He is a careful jumper and will jump off any stride, he's agile and quick against the clock so would suit a competitive jockey who could unlock his full potential.

Flicka has attended pony club rallies & camp and will behave in group situations, I see no reason why he wouldn't make a super hunting pony too as he isn't strong in open environments.

Flicka will hack alone or in company however lacks a bit of confidence if alone so needs a confident rider if going solo. Great in company and will go first or last. Good in traffic/tractors/farm machinery.

Good to load / clip / catch / bath / groom / for farrier / for dentist. Will travel quietly in a trailer/lorry.

Vaccs / teeth / worming up to date.

This pony loves to have a job and be kept busy so he would suit a home with a similar attitude to life! He really enjoys his work however won't become silly if he's not ridden every day.

Flicka can be cheeky and can occasionally nip, he's not nasty in character so it's usually a playful trait but because of this he would be better habdled by an adult/confident child as occasionally needs putting on his place!

Unfortunately for sale due to rider outgrowing him, being schooled professionally at current.

Full wardrobe and tack available - to be negotiated seperately.

He wants to please and is very level headed with a good brain and the right attitude to work.

We have hunted him and he was quite simply a dream, not strong or silly, good with hounds, incredibly polite and jumped ditches and timber no problem, he is made for the job and will give a lot of pleasure. I would love to clone him!

Awesome XC schooling round full BE90 track now with a few bigger fences for fun. He is ready to register and go BS or BE!

Lovely person to deal with, box, shoe, catch, needed a little sedation as found clippers a bit scary! He hacks alone or in company and is brilliant in traffic. Connemaras like this are very hard to find!

Heartbreaking decision to have to sell this legend of a pony.

He is just as good at xcountry and won several hunter trials and came 5th in national hunter trial championships last year.

He has been hunting with the Quorn this season, proving to be brave, sensible and controllable.

He requires a competent but sensitive rider who wants to go out and win as he is very quick (hence very good at jump offs) but totally safe and excellent in traffic and loves to hack out. He also hunts.

Casper has been the pony of a life time for my daughter but she is ready for the next step up otherwise we would keep him.

2018 was Shamus's first season eventing. He's taken my daughter from a complete beginner to confidently riding affiliated BE 80T and being placed 8th at BE Sapey and individual 5th in last years area 7 Pony Club grass roots areas and several Hunter Trial wins. He will happily school over BE novice fence and is patient to be studded in all weather conditions.

Shamus has a small BSJ record with winings at Discovery and is always a key member of the Pony Club show jumping team, Confident at the largest venue e.g jumping clear on grass at Chatsworth House invitation SJ 2017. Shamus is not a whizzy SJ Pony but makes up for this with a phenomenal ability to turn and powerful jump.

Shamus has hunted at children's meets and a couple of regular meets. He can get a little excited at first but calms down quickly. He's happy to jump anything and loves being out.

Shamus will hack for hours, and is excellent in heavy traffic and around farm machinery. Professionally schooled regularly, Shaums also enjoys regular physio maintenance treatment. Recently passed a 5-stage vetting (for insurance purposes) Shamus has no lumps or bumps and clean legs.

Shamus loves to be cuddled and pampered. He is a very good dooer and highly motivated by food so treats are kept to a minimum but he's always happy to check-out your pockets just in case. He loves his Equisage before a dressage competition and is good for the farrier, vet, dentist and physio.

Fully clipped and hogged currently, Shamus has handsome feathers should you wish to compete him in traditional cob classes.

Shamus looks after his jockey and will happily work up or down as needed. He occasionally throws a happy buck when asked to gallop across an open field but he will halt on voice command. Shamus has a relatively big barrel so will last his new jockey for several years or be ideal for a small adult. My daughter started riding him when she was a little 9 year old, she is now a skinny 5'5" 13yo. He will happily carry me at 5'"7.

Shamus can be fussy to clip, so we use small quiet clippers or sedate him for big clippers. He's happy to travel alone but can stamp. He will stand on the box in company but not alone. He's good to load on the return journey but can be fussy when going away from home alone. We have a lunge line out just in case. In the stable Shamus is always polite. He lunges well. Shamus is highly motivated by food and when lead in hand he can sometimes pull towards the best grass.

He is happy to live in or out. Happy turned out with geldings or mares or in his own paddock next to other horses or sheep.

Competes all phases in snaffle, hunts in gag, very happy to go bitless in a hackamore

Up to date with vaccinations and fit Shamus is ready for his next 10* home

148cm, 6yrs old registered Connemara gelding. 

I have owned Roy for 2 years now. He came over from Ireland as a 4 year old with the intention to bring on and sell. Since I have had him I have had huge amount of fun and success with him. He truly is a little super star. 

Firstly he is a very genuine little horse. He absolutely loves his jumping and always tries his heart out and never says no. Very bold and brave to a fence without being strong or silly.

I have competed him at 80 / 90 level where we have had success in all disciplines and also gained two top ten placings BE80 level. He has got a scopey careful jump and is unfazed by fillers. He is talented enough to go up the levels and I would expect him to go round a BE100 track or equivalent in time. 

Roy works well on the flat and has produced some good dressage tests. This is his weakest phase which needs more work to achieve the higher marks but all basics are established. Roy has hunted in Ireland. I think he would excel tethrathlon, BSJa or eventing. Would also make an excellent team chaser or hunter. 

Roy is a absolute superstar to hack. He quite happily goes out by himself or with others. Very good in all types of traffic including lorries and tractors. Does not get strong in an open field. 

Roy is very easy to handle and do everything with including clipping trimming, loading etc...............

Roy would suit a competitive experienced home.
