  • 15hh - 15.2hh
  • Must be gelding (livery yard restrictions)
  • Connie type preferred
  • Aged 4, if sensible head, to 12 years old

Genuinely seeking a new best friend for my 13 year old daughter, who is a quiet and kind rider. She would like to do a bit of everything but is possibly unusual for a teenager in that she is more interested in training than competing and so we can take our time with a younger horse with a sensible head! 

She is very slight so heavy cobs would not be suitable - we know we have tried!

We are an experienced home with a great support network and so the horse will have a fantastic life with the best farrier, vets, dentists and bodyworkers in the area.

Must be open to vetting.

A good but sensible budget is available for the right horse.

Based South Central but happy to travel, within reason. 

Please email in the first instance.

Quality MW PB Connemara

  • He is the most handsome boy and you would definitely get many admirers where ever you go!
  • Suitable for hacking and low level activities

Quality Dun gelding part bred connemara by Gwennic de Goriva, that has been used for top level showing looking for quieter life and forever home.

He has been in the same family home for 5 years and his new home will need to be as caring and loving as we have been. 

He is the most handsome boy and you would definitely get many admirers where ever you go! 

Suitable for hacking and low level activities. 

Our ideal home would be someone who is a competent rider and can really enjoy this jolly fellow. He’s not unkind but having been a competition horse is not a plod and can put the odd spook in and therefore is not suitable for novice riders or anyone with confidence issues. He’s happy to go on a long rein while you are out and having a chat with a friend. We have hacked him alone and in company on bridle paths and in light traffic and open spaces and he’s proved to be well behaved. He’s not been hacked in heavy traffic as we choose not to. He’s used to being on a busy show ground and is good with dogs and children. 

He schools well in walk and trot and love a canter on a hack and the occasional pop over a jump. 

Good to catch, with farrier and a good traveler. 

He is currently stabled at night and out in the day and we would be looking for a similar situation for him with suitable supervision on site. 

Home more important than price.

Absolutely gorgeous tempered 4 yo gelding. He has the sweetest nature and is super easy and genuine to work with in everyday. He is a smart little type, well put together and nicely marked. He stands at strong 14.2hh but is a late foal so likely to grow on.

He has been on fun rides this summer, been ridden across the country side and done plenty of hacking. Will go alone and in company.Snaffle mouth at all times.

Needs a little polish on the flat but with a winters work will make a super pony. Ideal for a small adult wanting to produce a nice allrounder or ideal for a mother to produce for child next year. 

Really can’t rate his temperament enough.

Striking dressage cob


Ref #: 218571
  • Sweet natured boy who loves flatwork!
£4,000
  • Cob
  • Coloured
  • Gelding
  • 10 years
  • 14.3 hands
  • Sweet natured boy who loves flatwork!

Bruno has a gorgeous personality and we love him to bits. He is ready to go to his next 5* home

Bruno is a fantastic dressage pony and qualified for national champs for both riding club and pony club for the last three years. Always in the top 10; judges love his paces, presence and can-do attitude

He is brilliant hacking out on the open common and can canter at a speed of your choosing. Fine with dogs, cattle and sheep too

He has hunted and stood quietly when needed and was sensible cross country with others

On busy roads he's better with company, (although it's not essential) as he's a bit worried about parked cars for some reason! He gives them a very wide birth which isn't great on a busy road and he can be a bit backward at going forward on busy roads without a friend to lead the way, so hacking on roads just becomes a bit laborious. Country lanes are fine and he's seen lots of farm machinery

The reason that we’d like to find him a new home: Bruno does NOT like fillers and ‘exotic-looking’ jumps! This means that he is NOT an ‘all rounder’..... I’d like to find him someone that loves flatwork, some fun-rides, a bit of xc, but any grand showjumping ambitions? He’s not your guy!

We’ll be so, SO sad to say goodbye and would like to keep in touch... but my daughter would like to jump more

Very well mannered horse. Rio has 3 fantastic paces. He is a real pleasure to ride, and a real gent.

He’s consistent in the dressage arena, never strong or silly.

Has competed up to prelim with his current owners and has potential to go further. Had numerous wins.

Has competed at 85cm unaffiliated show jumping with current owners with scope of go affiliated. Jumps 1.25 at home! Has previously shown.

Will make someone a lovely companion. Hasn’t done lots of hacking as it hasn’t been his current owners desire.

Very well behaved at shows, he’s a good doer, no health issues. He’s stabled over winter 24/7, never gets fizzy and lives out in the summer.

Change of circumstances forces sale. 5* home only for this special horse.


Quality Registered Connemara

  • 7 years
  • 15 hands
  • Super scopey jump
  • Hacks alone / company
  • Stunning paces

Drumcrave Katie is a 15hh, 7 year old (2012) grey registered Connemara mare by Coosheen Stormboy, whose grandsires are Abbeyleix Owen and Ashfield Bobby Sparrow.

Katie is an absolute sweetheart – she is kind, gentle, trusting and friendly, never cheeky, bargy or mareish. She loves a cuddle, and always neighs when she sees you. She comes up to you in the field and is perfect for a child to handle. She stands quietly to groom and tack up. She is nicely forward, never strong and is ridden in a snaffle at all times.

She has a super jump, popping happily round 90cm courses in a lovely rhythm and would easily go higher. She jumps fillers and skinnies, and really looks after her rider. She hunted and competed unaffiliated in Ireland before coming over to the UK earlier this year. She has been XC, pops into water and jumps all asked of her.

Her flatwork is improving all the time, and she is keen to learn. She has been regularly schooled by our trainer who competes at high level BD. My daughter and I both competed her at Prelim level dressage over the summer, and she scored 65-66% and came home with rosettes each time, with some lovely comments from the judges.

Katie is great to hack and will happily lead or follow, good in traffic, sensible to canter – perfect for mum to hack during the week. She is good to load, travel, shoe, clip, bath, catch, and happy to live in or out. She stands quietly on the lorry at shows, and is perfectly behaved in the warm up arena. She is light to the leg so needs a quiet rider. Not a novice ride due to her age.

Katie would be a super mother/daughter share for all pony club and riding club activities.

Many photos and videos can be seen on Marsh Ponies website / FB, where she is advertised on sales livery and where we bought her from. Sad sale due to loss of grazing. 5 stage vetting report from April 2019 is available for inspection.

Star has a good, willing, honest attitude to his work and is always ears pricked in and out of the stable. He particularly enjoys hacking and will hack alone and in company. He is a forward going, responsive ride and excellent in open spaces. He is good in traffic, used to dogs and is a pleasure to have on the yard.

Star is very good with hounds and has attended several hunt rides where he is a fun, forward going ride.

Star loads and travels perfectly in a trailer and horsebox and stands patiently. He is good to catch and shoe. He is up-to-date with worming, vaccinations and teeth.

Star requires an experienced, sympathetic rider as he is a forward going ride. He would be perfectly suited to a home with a more mature rider who loves to hack out with friends and go on hunt, farm and beach rides. He wouldn’t be suited to a Pony Club home.

Star is for sale with a professionally fitted bridle and saddle and a full wardrobe of nearly new rugs and boots as his owner is giving up riding. An experienced, five star home with other horses is paramount.

T: 07771 890948 (Zoë) Barrowby, Grantham, South Lincolnshire.
