One in a million - 14.2hh  beautifully marked 10 year old Tobiano mare, fully registered CHAPS with recorded breeding

This is a very special girl who must go to an exceptionally good home as she’s just so kind and loving and always tries her best to please. She’s not at all mareish so much so she’s stabled next to a stallion. She’s always pleased to see you and simply loves humans and will stand all day to be fussed over and pampered.

She Is handled and ridden by a 7 year old girl she’s that easy and is a true family or mother / daughter share.

She’s a beautiful straight mover , well schooled and works in a natural outline and does a super dressage test and has also been successfully shown, she pops a little fence however jumping is not truly her forte and in all honesty she’s not going to be a show jumper and would ideally suit a hacking / schooling / showing / dressage / family home.

Easy to catch , load , shoe and with no vices. Good in traffic. Snaffle mouthed.

Open to vet. No time wasters please for this totally genuine girl.

Tack is also available. Can deliver.

Hours of safe hacking await her new family!

  • This lovely natured gelding has a great attitude towards work as well as being a saint on the ground

Danny is a 10yr old piebald Gelding, 15hh. He is an absolute gent with a heart of gold. He was bought for a disabled lady to do walk tests but is a little too much horse. 

He is show jumping around a course of 90cm with scope to go up. He is more than happy to get you out of trouble when your stride isn’t perfect!  He is showing real potential on the flat, with the walk and trot being really established with good lateral work. His canter is his weakest phase, not surprisingly, but is coming on very quickly. 

Danny has been cross country schooling and loved it. He is very good out hacking on his own or in company. He is also very good to lead off. 

This lovely natured gelding has a great attitude towards work as well as being a saint on the ground. 

Based near Silverstone. Bucks / Northants border.

Lovely cob who will be a best friend, happy hacker, steady first horse type or good enough mover to do some really good dressage tests or show as a coloured native. 

Horace has been recently imported from Ireland and has proved himself to be a super genuine chap, who only aims to please. He is riding well on the flat and a very quick learner, with a little more work he will become a local dressage star, with the right rider he could do well BD. He has three very good paces. 

Horace will pop a small fence under saddle, but this isn't really his thing but he is perfectly willing to have a go. 

He is brilliant to hack alone and in company, will go first, last or inbetween, good in open spaces and been good as gold in all traffic met here with us. He will give someone a lot of fun or has a good enough temperament for a riding school or RDA centre. 

Easy to catch, pick up feet, box, friendly in and out the stable and a really friendly person.

Although not the prettiest horse on the market she is definitely one of the easiest!!!  Recently over from Ireland, Maude has not disappointed, She is easy to do and look after, real low maintenance, you could ride her every day or not for weeks and she still remains her same laid back self.

Not a Ploddy kick along cob, she is easy off the leg and actually very well balanced and schooling well considering her age.  She holds herself in her paces  without the rider having to keep kicking her along and she is starting to ride in an outline too.  I would say with a bit more schooling this mare would definitely excel in the dressage arena.

Maude Jumps well too, we have found her to remain easy going and has jumped everything we have asked her too, both coloured fences in the school or hay bales and logs out hacking.  

We have hacked maude both alone and in company on busy main roads as well as round big open fields and through the woods,  she happily rides over the bridges and through the ditches and water. 

She is a really lovely girl sweet natured totally genuine

BUBBLY COB MARE

POA
  • Cob
  • Skewbald
  • Mare
  • 7 years
  • 14.1 hands
  • Brave and keen
  • Phased by nothing
  • Easy and honest

This lovely young red and white mare has been carefully and kindly trained and just loves life. She is sociable in her little herd but she is always keen to be chosen.

Never bargy or rude but works out what is happening next and is ready to have a go.

Her training started after her beautiful grey and white filly foal was weaned and she has become an easy and forward horse to ride over any terrain.

She prefers to go exploring the hills rather than going round and round an arena and is intelligent, quick and uses her brain.

Rosa is phased by nothing and never gets into a flap when she encounters the unexpected. She is happy to jump anything encountered in the countryside and could learn to pop poles easily.

She is ridden in an Orbitless bridle (no bit) and is soft and sensitive to any aids, responding immediately when asked. Straight action and excellent feet and she would live out quite happily.

We are looking for a kind happy forever home where she will be hacked out by either a light adult/teenager or an older experienced rider and she must have her own friend (s) in the field.

Genuine Allrounder Traditional Cob


Ref #: 197854

  • Very sad sale of this beautiful genuine boy
  • Alfie is a 14hh traditional heavyweight cob
  • Excelled in dressage, placing top 3 every outing
  • Very sweet on the ground, loves kisses and cuddles

Very sad sale of this beautiful genuine boy. Alfie is a 14hh traditional heavyweight cob. He has been schooled weekly with a professional instructor and has three lovely paces. He has excelled in dressage, placing top 3 every outing. Always in the 60's! I've only gone as far as prelim, due to time, but he'd be more than capable of more in the right hands!

He is more of a kick along than pull back, has good breaks out in the open, hacks out lovely never does anything silly, if something does catch his eye he has a little look and then carries on his merry way. He doesn't feel the need to be up at the front or has to keep up, he's happy to do his own thing, he does love hacking. He also enjoys jumping, I'm not really that keen but he has a bold brave jump and will take me over easily.

He also does very well in showing, he always has lovely comments. Wherever he goes he always places and has lots of rosettes to his name.

He's a very quick learner, after only a few attempts he learnt to leg yield, shoulder in etc. In the right hands he could go far and at only 8 yrs he's got lots more time to move up through the levels.

He's very sweet on the ground, loves kisses and cuddles. He has such a big character he is very sociable (nosy) and likes to know what you are doing, he makes me laugh all the time.

Never sick or sorry, never had reason to call the vet, very hardy and low maintenance. I've never clipped him, he has always been out 'au natural'. With me he goes out at night and in during the day in summer and opposite in winter. He can live alone or in a herd, he's very easy with whatever.

Alfie loads and travels well on trailer, van or lorry. Good to catch, trim, wash. He's a very good boy around children, I have three daughters, he's good around dogs and farm machinery. He walks through our busy farm yard and doesn't bat an eyelid. Snaffle mouthed at all times.

Genuine reason for sale, it hasn't been easy to come to this decision and I'm very sad but he's still got so much to give and he deserves more.

I have been his main rider, I would call myself a competent novice, he has been ridden by kids and is also currently being ridden by a 13 year old girl. As long as you start off as you mean to go on he is a good boy, he can be stubborn in the school, but as long as you tell him he's fine! Nothing nasty at all.

Have loads of photos and videos of him, message me for more. Will come with all tack including recently re-fitted saddle.

Price negotiable for right home!

Stunning 14.1hh 9y year old Blagdon Cob gelding, very sad sale to a 5* home only. 

Frank is a truly special pony, that has done a little bit of everything: DR, SJ, XC, ODE, RC, WHP, showing, hunted, sponsored rides, camps, driving trials.

This is an honest advert as we want to find him the best possible home. Price is negotiable in order to achieve this. My daughter is moving away and has the chance to go traveling for a year and Frank needs more work than I have time or ability to commit to. 

He has achieved so much in his previous home where he was home produced and we fell in love with him from the word go. He is absolutely steady and reliable in the heaviest of traffic, he is a pleasure to handle, he will stand all day to be groomed and clipped and is perfect with the farrier.

He works very well in the school and comes into a lovely outline. In his previous home Jumped 90cm with ease. Competed 80cm also in 2018 achieved Reserve Champion showing; Qualified Royal London. He will do a lovely dressage test and proves that “cobs can”!

TGCA registered. Full history known. I am in touch with his breeder as well as his last owner.

I hack Frank on quiet and busy roads, through woodland and open spaces for hours and he is perfectly well behaved – the same alone or in company. I feel that Frank needs some work on his trot to canter transitions and needs a confident rider to develop him further. He has been known to throw in a buck on the transition.  My daughter, as a more confident rider, has been working on this with him, but since she is moving away I do not feel I am able to continue this training to get the best out of Frank. I wish I had the ability to do this as in every other way he is such a star. He would be so well suited to someone wanting to do a bit of everything with him, or even a competition home, as he has been a true superstar in the show ring. He is a beautiful example of a traditional gypsy cob!

His previous owner brought him on and her only reason for selling him is that he just didn’t really grow big enough for her. She even broke him to drive and I’m sure that’s another reason he is so excellent on the roads. 

As I say, he is a very special boy and I want to find him the perfect home that he deserves and sadly I feel this is not with me. Therefore, the price is far less important than the home, so this can be negotiated.

He has no vices and is very quick to learn, he’s very green and inexperienced but he is riding away nicely and has seen a small amount of traffic, but would benefit from seeing a lot more, he needs an experienced home to bring him on to the next level

He’s good with the farrier, will travel in a box or a trailer, easy to load, will turn out alone or with others, he will also ride out alone or in company

Same home since weaning, has been very well handled since birth

Lack of time forces this very reluctant sale
