Coedeneirin Toyboy (Tambo) has been a wonderful competition schoolmaster for my daughter and is now sadly outgrown. An experienced showjumper, he has a fabulous jump and competes up to 85cm (team 2nd at the British Showjumping Academy Nationals this summer). Absolutely loves XC (has always gone clear at 60-75cm ODE’s with us). Has competed in plenty of dressage during our 2+ years with him (Pony Club, unaffiliated and Team Quest) and gets good scores for his tests.

We couldn’t have wished for a more amazing pony to partner with over the past 2+ years and he’s taught my daughter an incredible amount. He’s fast, forward going and has bundles of energy, therefore needs a calm, gutsy and capable jockey to form a happy partnership. This transition took us a little while, but was worth every ounce of effort and time. He’s great in traffic (my 11 year old daughter hacks him out alone) and to clip, box, shoe, catch etc.

He did 3 residential camps plus 2 nights at Stoneleigh this summer and is a real Pro in these environments. Definitely not suitable for hunting.

Tambo was already diagnosed with mild Cushings when we got him and has 0.5 Prascend tablet daily. He’s a fit, healthy pony who defies his 18 years and has so much to offer a confident young rider who wants to improve.

Loving home essential for the sad sale of this gorgeous boy

To Lease 12HH Competition Pony

  • Top Level Competition Pony to Lease.
  • School Master Cradle Stakes, S J, X C, Hunting,P C.
  • Amazing opportunity for competent child.

Sunny came to us as a 4 yr old for my then 7 yr old son. They started out doing 122cms SHP and 1st Pony H T classes, winning many rosettes, They progressed to become one of the best Cradle Stakes ponies in the country ,competing and winning at BSPS champs and area shows.

Sunny left us when my son grew out of class , leaving us with an amazing string of wins in cradle stakes, 1st pony hunter type, 122 SHP, many happy days spent at P C, SJ and X C. And a legacy of wonderful memories , trotting down the center line in the evening performances, the pink silky sashes, the wonderful prizes and rosettes. He moved on to give other children a super fun time, hunting, show jumping , X C and P C.

I was lucky enough to buy him back early 2018 for my grandson, who has now outgrown him. We can not bear to part with him again, so he is available to lease for the next 2 seasons, as my granddaughter is not yet big enough to compete or jump him.

He is no different now than he was when he was younger. He is safe to hack out , alone or in company, ( 6 yr old granddaughter hacks him whilst I ride another) being excellent in traffic.

He is happy jumping up to 70cms, is good to shoe, load, travel, clip, and is good to catch once he gets to know you.

Sunny is available to a home where he can compete at Cradle Stakes, show jumping, cross country, pony club, hunting, ect. He IS NOT a first year first ridden . He will need a competent, quite, calm , confident child who will take the time to get to know him . Please no nervous riders or beginners as they would not suit him. This is a cracking opportunity for the right child probably between 9 yrs and 11yrs. He is on medication for cushings, 1 pracend daily and 1 scoop Freestep. Please phone me for a chat if you think he would suit your child ,genuine inquiries only please.

Telephone only in the first instance to Liz on 07766 732619

Bret was a show lead rein pony for a young girl, who has moved onto a bigger pony.

I have had Bret for 2 months to keep one of my horses company.

He was given to me as a companion pony but does not like being out on his own when my other horse comes in. He will live out with others but not alone.

He does shake his head when it’s very sunny, but apart from that he would make a lovely lead rein hacking pony as good in traffic.

  • No laminitis bare foot, fully vaccinated 100% sound no blemishes

Dancer is a full up 14.2 HH Welsh Section D Mare (although she isn’t marish - I can’t tell when she’s in season!)

Dancer is a great forward going hack, she’s very safe on the ground and she is very fun and forward going, yet very safe to ride (she won't buck, rear or bolt and rarely spooks) and I have ridden her tackless and trust her completely.

She's good to clip, shoe etc and she travels and loads/unloads absolutely perfectly in a horsebox (not in a trailer though) and is the same at a competition or other venue as she is at home.

She loves her hacking and can go alone or in company and she is pretty much bombproof (we've had the whole hunt and all the dogs go right past us and she just stood there quietly). Current owner has had her for 16 yrs.

She is 25 years old, but really does not show it at all and has not had any injections in her hocks or anything. She would be great for someone to hack regularly as she really loves to be ridden.

Dancer is based near Hook, on the Surrey/Hampshire border but we would be happy for her to move yards if she went out on loan (as long as we have checked that they would be suitable for her).

Maximum rider weight of 10st/63kg please. She takes up leg well (current rider is 5’7).

Her current owner has had her for nearly 16 years so a lot of her history is known.

We have owned this very special boy for 4 years now and he has taught both my daughters so much and given us some very happy memories.

For sale due to being outgrown and he's to good to be a happy hacker!

Charlie is still capable of jumping 1-1.05 tracks but we are looking for a home where he can have a slightly quieter life. He would be a prefect mother daughter share where he can do a few competitions now and again and still bring back the ribbons. He'd be perfect for someone wanting to do a bit of hunter trails, arena evening and show jumping now and again. He is a full up 14.2 and is not a Novice ride as he does enjoy his job and when he's out competing he does not behave like an 18 year old.

He does have to wear bar shoes on his front feet and requires his coffin joints to be injected once a year, we have done this for the past 2 years. Please do not be put of by this in any way we have been able to do all of the above with him just on a less regular basis and on good conditions.

He really is pony of a lifetime and a 5* home is essential because he has given us so much, he has the heart of a lion a truly loveable personality and loves his XC, he will teach someone lots as well as give you so much fun. Good to clip, load, shoe and hack. He is Not a hunting pony. Albion saddle available by separate negotiation.
