Super, consistent, handsome schoolmaster gelding, he is 15hh/153cm (LHC), 12yr Old Chestnut Gelding. We have owned Joey for 3 years and have had great fun with him and had some fantastic results, listed below.

He can turn his hoof to anything, but we have mainly competed him in BSPS Open WHP competitions but he has also done dressage, PC SJ BS and Eventer Trials, XC Schooled.

He is careful and quick against the clock when SJ but doesn't get buzzy or overexcited.

In dressage he always produces a good test as he is not spooky, is relaxed and accurate. He is beautifully schooled, going in a lovely outline and jumps in a flowing rhythm, with lovely flying changes.

He is sane and sensible, great to hack on his own or in company, excellent in traffic not getting fizzy or buzzy with others even in big open spaces. He is used to living on a busy farm so is used to heavy machinery, lorries, dogs and is regularly turned out with livestock. Happy to live on his own or with company. He is 100% to clip, shoe, load, travel, catch etc.

Regularly stays away at shows where he always quite happy and settled. 10* home sought for this lovely horse. Great step upto horses from coming off ponies, ideal mother/daughter share.

Only for sale as jockey is off to University in September. We have tonnes of videos and photos which can be sent on Wattsapp.

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.

Searching For A Trustworthy Family Friend

To Enjoy Hacking, Pleasure Rides & Occasional Schooling

Ref #: 256033
  • Approx 15hh, Ideally Aged Between 8-15 Years
  • M-H/Weight Cob Type Preferred
  • Kind Natured, Suited To A Quiet Family Home Setting
  • Approx 15hh, Ideally Aged Between 8-15 Years
  • M-H/Weight Cob Type Preferred
  • Kind Natured, Suited To A Quiet Family Home Setting

Due to sadly retiring my faithful old friend (who is now our much-loved pet lawnmower!), I am now searching for a steady, trustworthy new friend to enjoy adventures with.  We have a super, kind & knowledgeable family home along with my retired boy, our daughter’s pony & our 2 Shetlands for company. Our horses are treated as part of our family & receive the absolute best of care & I would be happy to provide references & to keep in touch.  

I have ridden for several years & consider myself a knowledgeable & capable rider. However, I am a middle-aged mum who has been mostly out of the saddle over the last couple of years (due to my horse’s ongoing health issues), so I am no longer as confident as I used to be!   I look forward to enjoying much more sedate adventures nowadays, so I am seeking a laid-back best friend who does not require a fast-paced way of life & who doesn’t need riding most days to remain safe & sane.

We will be enjoying leisurely hacks, attending organised pleasure rides, forest/beach trips, the odd bit of schooling but nothing competitive.  I will often be hacking alongside my young daughter on her pony so it is especially important that I find a steady, trustworthy type who I can depend on.  

Our horses are kept at home with us, so a gentle natured character is important, the type who enjoys attention & who is safe to handle on the ground as the children are often around with me.  

We live in a rural area & although we generally meet very little traffic, it is likely to be a tractor/farm vehicle, so it is important that my new horse is trustworthy around this type of traffic.  Although I will often hack out with my daughter or friends, I will also be hacking alone at times so he/she must be willing & safe when hacking out solo.

I appreciate that no horse is ‘perfect’ & I am open to compromise but please do just be honest about any known issues as I won’t buy unseen & would wish to have any potential horse vetted.  

We are based in Norfolk but happy to travel up to around 2.5 hours if videos/photos could be provided beforehand.  I am ideally looking to purchase but would be happy to LWVTB or may consider a long-term loan. I have a sensible budget & very relaxed & loving forever home awaiting the right horse.

Ross Ruby is a 9 year old 15hh connemara gelding by Castleside Carrig.

He is a sweet natured family allrounder with good broad life experience. He is well schooled with a really lovely balanced and comfortable canter and is responsive to the aids without being fizzy, fast or strong.

He hacks really well alone and in company and is good with traffic.

He has good all round competition experience and has competed with both myself and my daughter to BE90, with a sub 30 DC. He has also competed BD, qualifying for this year's area festival in one outing, and BS.

He hunted regularly as a five year old and was well behaved, sane and sensible, and has been on mounted hound exercise more recently, behaving well.

He happily canters and gallops in company without being silly. He would never dream of kicking, bucking or rearing and is great to catch, shoe, load and travel, and he happily stands on the lorry for ages. He does need twitching to trim and clip as he is quite ticklish.

He has been in the same family home for 4 years ridden by myself and my two daughters aged from 11-13 as well as several of their friends because he is so amenable!

He is only very sadly for sale because of our changing horsey circumstances: my daughter's competing is taking over and I want to focus on her ponies.

Can be viewed in Cholmondeley, South Cheshire. Please call for a chat, many more videos available on request.

Cheeky ,15h,12-year-old, Welsh Section D, gelding.

Cheeky has a temperament to die for, he is easy going, well mannered, and really easy to keep – happy to live in or out. Easy to shoe, load, catch and handle in every way. He has lived on a farm all his life so is completely bomb proof with farm machinery and all kinds of traffic, hacks alone or in company, not nappy. He has a heart of gold and a real pleasure to have around.

He is an experienced all rounder and perfect pony club pony, over the years he has done all of the pony club activities with my daughter and given her a really fun time, pony club camps, competitions, areas, clinics e.c.t. 

Been with Mendip farmers pony club for 4 years, and shown to be lovey well rounded pony. 

He is a mother’s dream and has given my daughter so much confidence. Very good in open spaces, not at all strong, he has hunted on many occasions and is always well behaved.

He has 3 established, well-balanced paces and does a fab dressage test, he has done a very small amount of British dressage this year and collect 17 points, this is an area that he has potential excel in, if his rider wanted to.

Cheeky has plenty of scope and competed up to 90cm with my daughter, who has never been the most confident when jumping, never the less he has always been patient and genuine to her. He has done lots of unaffiliated ODE’s with us, and proved to be more than capable to do BE, if his next rider desires.

Up to date with vaccinations and teeth, no vices.

Extremely sad sale as my daughter is moving away for college and will not have enough time to give him the attention he deserves, he is a one in a million-pony so 5-star genuine homes only.
