Looking to buy my forever horse. I am looking for a mother/daughter share. I know they are hard to find but looking for something that just knows their job, school master type who will look after me when I’m hacking out and schooling but is also capable enough for my daughter who loves eventing, going to PC rallies etc and is much more experienced than me.

She already has her own horse so will just want to have fun in my nee one. Looking for between 15:2 and 16:2. I do have a soft spot for Skewbald’s ?? but not a necessity.

Loving 5* home. Will need to pass a 5* vetting.

Based in Scotland so due to restrictions would prefer to see horses here but if my dream horse is further away would consider it.

Good budget for the right horse.

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.

Looking to buy the horse of a lifetime for a 5ft 23 year old amateur rider who just rides because they love it.

I sadly had to retire my 26 year old section D this year so now she is living her best life relaxing with her friends all day, however it has left me with a slight sadness because I do really miss riding her. So I am now searching for the next gem to join our little, loving, knowledgeable family.

I'm looking for a schoolmaster type who has the been there and done it attitude. They have to be safe and reliable with a good temperament while being ridden and on the ground. I would be doing a lot of hacking and schooling so a horse that can hack alone/ in company safely, and enjoy schooling is important. I'm not the most confident when it comes to jumping, so I would love a safe horse that can pop a few jumps, doesn't have to be record breaking! but it's something that I would like to get my confidence up with, so having a genuine and reliable horse in that area would be perfect. I say I want a mother/daughter share type because I want a trustworthy, sensible horse that I can hack confidently but also would be happy doing fun rides, going to the beach, popping some jumps and possibly small competitions in the future. Just looking for a new best friend.

Loving 5* star home awaits, sizeable budget for the right horse.

Based in the South Wales area but location isn't important to me as I will travel for the perfect horse.

It’s also important for them to be mannerly and easy to deal with on the ground- so I don’t have to worry about my mum being kicked/tramped/pulled about !

No bronkers/rearers or nappers please. Don’t mind the odd Buck as long as not a nasty one!
