Wanted ~ A Safe, Genuine Character For Happy Hacking & Pleasure Rides.

Knowledgeable Family Home Offered For A New Faithful Friend

Ref #: 236909
  • Approx 15.2hh. Medium/Heavyweight/Cob Type, Gelding Preferred.
  • Experienced, Loving 5* Family Home Offered. References Available.
  • For Mum To Accompany Daughter On Her Pony Enjoying Hacking, Pleasure Rides & Low Level Schooling.
  • Approx 15.2hh. Medium/Heavyweight/Cob Type, Gelding Preferred.
  • Experienced, Loving 5* Family Home Offered. References Available.
  • For Mum To Accompany Daughter On Her Pony Enjoying Hacking, Pleasure Rides & Low Level Schooling.

I am tentatively searching for a true family friend to join us at our home along with our daughters' pony, our 2 Shetlands & my dear faithful friend who now very sadly needs to be retired.

Due to ongoing health issues with my current horse I have been out of the saddle for the last year so I am looking for a steady, genuine character who will take care of me! We will be enjoying hacking, pleasure rides... popping over logs on the way & some low-level schooling just for fun! I am not looking for a world beater or the type that requires riding every day. My 8 year old daughter has a wonderful pony & I would like to join her on hacks from our home & to attend pleasure rides together (rather than tagging along on the bike for ever more!). It really is vital that I find a trustworthy, straightforward character who I can rely on when out riding with my young daughter alongside me. I will also be hacking out on my own at times so needs to be sensible when out without company. We live in a rural area so meet very little traffic, however, we do occasionally meet tractors/trailers so the horse must be sensible in this situation.

I can offer an experienced, loving, forever family home with stabling, post & rail fencing & I would be open to home vetting & happy to supply references if required.

Norfolk based.

Many thanks for reading.

Looking for a horse to enjoy hacking through beautiful countryside including open fields and beaches, occasional fun rides and one that is happy to stand and wait if I see someone I know. Or the rare occasion they’ll happily go in the arena for a lesson.

My ideal horse will be over 16 hands, preferably a gelding, not of a fine build, a horse that has been there done it and would now appreciate a quieter life or one that enjoys hacking and the above. I’m not hugely keen on competing if I did it would be local show only. The main criteria being he is safe, sane, sound and sensible that will enjoy being loved and pampered.

I am based in North Devon and would Like to keep viewing to the south west area.
