  • I’m looking for a horse for a great livery client of mine, here are the must haves/ ideals...
  • Around 15.2h
  • Preferably a gelding, preferably over 8 years
  • MUST be safe hacking out in company and alone (I’m very aware they aren’t machines but no loonies or spooky ones, no whipping round and buggering off at the first sign of a dock leaf giving it the evil eye) 
  • Needs to be more whoa than go without being dead from the neck down, my mature client has electric knickers 
  • Will never need to do a dressage test or jump many coloured fences but needs to be able to pop fun ride type fences and have the odd jolly round our fences here at Rabson 
  • A cob cross/Connie cross/ID cross type would be ideal
  • MUST load and travel well alone and stand quietly to be mounted
  • Will be kept on full livery with me so please, no sweet itch, vices or bloody horrid temperaments cos I really don’t have the time or the energy for hassle
  • I’d rather buy in this country as I’d prefer to know a bit of history or maybe have references. If the candidate has hunted quietly that would be bloody perfect but not essential 
  • Decent budget for the right horse

Please send details/pics/ videos to 07888 675300, WhatsApp is ideal then I can keep track!

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.

Bobby is a fabulous family horse. He would suit a mother and child share or anyone wanting a real friend to enjoy hacking and fun rides with.

He is capable of popping a course of jumps of 80-90 cm but he is a laid back character and for this reason we are not seeking a competition home for him. He is a super comfortable, calm, snaffle ride.

My young son happily canters him along beside me in the stubble or on a fun ride never feeling out of control or unsafe in any way. He jumps quietly and sensibly over coloured poles, fillers and cross country fences.

He was successfully shown in his previous home (Supreme Champion Working Hunter Ashton Show 2017).

He gets on very well with other horses, mares and geldings.

He is good to shoe, box, clip and catch.
