DO YOU HAVE A HORSE OR PONY SUITABLE FOR THE RDA?

WANTED ON LONG TERM LOAN / PURCHASE

Ref #: 249896
  • If you think your equine has what it takes, please contact one of the groups below
  • If you think your equine has what it takes, please contact one of the groups below

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.

I am a professional working woman looking for my next steed to join the family. We lost our beloved boy to colic last year after many happy years together but feel the time is now right to look for a new friend to have fun with.

Our horses live at home and want for nothing. We live at the end of a No through lane with plenty of off road/quiet lane hacking.

We have a Charles britton arena with soundtrack surface. Permanent stabling (been here 400 years!) and Post and rail fenced paddocks. I am 40 years old and am not looking to go to the olympics. I would love an all rounder to go out and about and enjoy making memories.

We have A 3.5t Horsebox and thetford forest for day trips is only an hour away. I do enjoy flat work so horse must be sound and able to school 3-4 times per week. I am not particularly interested in jumping unless it’s to pop a log out on a hack.

Happy to keep in touch with previous owner. Kind, experienced and genuine home awaits. I am not in the business of buying a horse to sell on 5 minutes, indeed, I have only ever sold one horse in the past 30 years!

Ideal horse would be between 15hh and 16hh and kind in nature. No grumpy faces or teeth on show!
