Great show / dressage prospect or safe family fun horse

Bounty - 5 year old traditional gypsy cob gelding

He currently stands at 14hands but is bum high and still growing, I would expect him to make 14.2.

Safe and Sensible, he is a great character.

He has 3 super balanced paces and would excel in dressage or showing.

Lovely looking with unusual markings, appaloosa on his chest.

Good to handle both on the ground and ridden.

He hacks out alone and in company and whilst nothing much bothers him he sometimes does the odd cheeky little spook when on his own.

Due to his age he is not a novice ride but he is an easy and well mannered ride and behaves well on roads and in open spaces, doesn’t pull and is nice and light in the mouth and happy to pop the odd jump.

Never bucked, reared, bolted or displayed any vices and is very laid back about everything.

He hasn’t done much schooling but he goes from and round your leg. He hasn’t been asked to work in an outline yet as he really needs to get stronger first but is starting to get engagement from the hind legs which will develop the roundness.

Up to date with feet, teeth, worming, flu and tetanus jabs and in regular work

Currently bare foot as his feet are really hard

Good to catch, box and has no known allergies or ailments.

Will live in or out.

He is a pleasure to have around, easy to do and just a lovely friendly character.

Would make a great mother and daughter share, he is very genuine.

Looking for a forever home for this very special boy.

SHe is a very straight mover and excels ridden and stands beautifully square.

We are looking for a 5* home for this stunning lady.
Always snaffle mouthed. Never strong or silly. Can be brave on the ground but this is due to her being young.

Good with the farrier, clipping, catching etc. She was in her previous home for 3 years and was long reined on the road nothing seemed to phase her and she is very brave was told she was good around traffic. Great with lorries on the yard and quads and kids.

Will require patience in the stable as she is just getting used to it. Has been in and stabled with our other horses.

Lots of videos and photos on request and can be seen ridden. Comes with passport recently shod and wormed.

Belle is a lovely 4 year old medium cob. She has been long reined on roads, lunged and lightly backed.

She is very biddable in all she’s done and no drama. She’s a calm girl with nice attitude to work.

She is good on the road and with all traffic she’s met. Great with children, dogs, sheep goats and lots of noisy chaos around her.

She ties up calmly, good for farrier and adores being fussed and groomed.

Due to Covid we had to stop her schooling at livery and bring her home.

She is sold from field but will be no problem to continue her schooling.

She hasn’t made the height we need so sadly we have to part with her.

Looking for an amazing experienced forever home. Must be experienced in bringing on youngsters, don’t want her spoilt.

She needs to be able to live out with company. She will make a wonderful ride and drive, very laid back girl, who adores people.

  • She really will be the epitome of a family pony

4 year old 14.1hh Silver Blagdon/dilute traditional cob mare. 

She is a proper old fashioned, leg at each corner stamp of a cob.

Exceptionally kind and quiet temperament. She is currently being backed and ridden away and is taking everything in her stride. She will definitely be the steadier type! 

Good when led out in traffic, with dogs running around and a busy yard.

Good to load in lorry or trailer and travels well, easy to bath and groom, she is patient and ties up quietly. Always the first one over in the field and always happy to see her humans. 

Loves attention and fuss and cuddles. 

Unfortunately very sadly, some of her mane has been chewed by her friend and also snapped off from eating under the post and rail fence. She definitely has never rubbed or itched it, but is it a bit spikey in places.

She really will be the epitome of a family pony once she has a little more life experience, but would be a really rewarding project for a capable teenager etc to bring on.

With her colour and conformation, she will also make a fabulous broodmare and produce some gorgeous foals. 

She is a very special girl who needs a special home.

Weight carrier -Children's charity

  • 5* home for life
  • Over 15 years
  • 15hh +

We are a children's charity that teaches children between the ages of eight to eighteen the whole aspect of horse ownership, including riding.

We are looking for a bigger weight carrier to join our family of 24. Ideally will live out although we do have stables should they be required.

15 years + and over 15hh, a horse that has been there and seen it and got the t-shirt and now needs a quieter life. Must be good on the ground.

We are very quiet during the week as the children only come at the weekends so the horse must be able to cope with that transition.

All we need is a horse that can walk, trot and canter and pop a very small jump without issue, nothing more taxing than that, the work at the weekends is minimal.

We have a small budget and the Covid lockdown has adversely affected us. We would definitely consider a long term loan.

If you have this little gem in your paddock please drop me a line!

So here is our beautiful Rango, that sadly has been outgrown far too soon. He is a cheeky little chap with a heart of gold and will make someone very happy.

He has done dressage, jumping, XC, hunting and pony club.

He still requires further education as he came to us a little green, so is not a first horse as he is too good to be a lead rein pony.

No vices. Forward going, can be strong but snaffle at all times.

All upto date, good with vet, farrier etc and to clip. Will happily stand all day to be groomed.

Only a 5* home for this chap as he deserves only the best

  • Ready to be someone’s best friend !

Suga is the sweetest Most genuine horse you will ever meet. There isn’t a bad bone in his body! 

He has been hacked out alone & in company. And will happily walk along on the buckle.

He will give the most nervous of riders confidence. And will also look after riders who don’t have any balance. 

As much as he’s a confidence giver he has a nice moving trot, not just a plod along kick every stride type. 

Remains totally safe in open spaces whether that be in a group going for a gallop or on his own. Again- a novice rider could canter him across the field o men the buckle and he would look after them!

Has been xcountry with a 12 year old - never stops, never strong- just a real sweetie! 

Goes in the school walk , trot. canter. Would be an ideal riding school type with a little work. 

Would really suit a home for someone that wants a best friend that will totally look after them! 

Would be fabulous for fun rides, beach rides and maybe even hunting! 

Perfect to load, shoe etc. 

Recently had teeth done, Front shoes done (although feet good enough to be barefoot) vaccinations done and wormed.

Located Southampton
