  • Solid, traditional Section D Mare
  • Temperament to die for
  • Stunning looks that will make you stand out from the crowd

Stunning and Incredibly sweet allrounder / family horse

15 hands 2 ins, 9 year old, dun, welsh section D mare but not in anyway mareish. This lovely girl has the kindest and sweetest nature ever. She has had a late start to her ridden life so not a lot of milage under her belt although she turns her hoof to everything asked of her with the a willing and trainable temperament. She really loves to please!

She stands like a saint to be brushed, tacked up, get on, goes in a very nice outline, always snaffle mouthed, jumps everything asked if her first time with no questions. Fillers, water trays, up and down steps. Good to hack alone and in company. Been on quite roads, busy roads, wood trails and throughly enjoys it all. Stays calm in open spaces. Works alone and when horses turned out next to her.

She is a true, old fashioned Welsh section D stamp- solid, foot in each corner type that is beautiful inside and out. She really stands out from the crowd.

She has been ridden by all members of the family from more experienced rider, teenager and even my toddler has enjoyed a ride on her. She is handled from grandparents through to children. She is the family favourite and only through sad, unforeseen circumstances I am forced to offer her up for sale.

Due to her stamp she could carry somebody with abit extra weight easily, she would make a great family horse, PC/PC allrounder with continued education. Due to her lack of experience I would say she is not for a complete beginner or novice.

Good to shoe, catch, box (never been clipped so cannot comment on how she takes that, but we her attitude I’m sure it wouldn’t be a problem)

Kind, fun loving home wanted for this special girl.

No time wasters please. Lots of pictures / videos on request

Apollo is a 15hh, 5 year old registered Connemara grey gelding, by Menlough Owen out of Dalo’s Pride

Apollo is a gorgeous lad who is now ready to develop his potential further. We have owned him for the past 18 months and in that time have brought him on slowly, introducing him to a wide range of activities

Apollo is a kind and genuine little horse who is very trainable and enjoys his work. His flat work is developing well and he has done some pleasing dressage tests

A beautiful and traditional type of Connemara, Apollo was impeccably behaved and had some success in local showing classes last year. He also had ribbons in his first ODE. He hunted in Ireland as a 4 year old and would make a good little hunting horse

This year, Apollo has been to training shows, arena eventing, cross-country schooling and Pony Club rallies. He loves a day out but also loves hacking either alone or in company

Apollo has no vices, an easy temperament and has become a much-loved member of our family. He is happy to live in or out and with or without a companion. Good to shoe, box and in traffic, as yet he has not been clipped. He is snaffle-mouthed and never strong or silly

Would suit a PC/RC home, or mother and child share, where he can continue with his education. He would possibly suit a more novice home but only with an experienced trainer on hand, as he is still a young and relatively inexperienced horse

A very good home is wanted for this special horse who has been sadly outgrown

Top Showing prospect, his 1/2 brother from the same dam being a ridden champion at TOYS.

Due to his age he is not a novice ride.

Professionally started and correctly schooled, happy to pop over a small jump.

Sweet lovable Irish suga

SOLD!
  • Cob
  • Grey
  • Gelding
  • 10 years
  • 14.3 hands
  • Not a nasty bone in his body
  • LOVES attention
  • 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
