Lovey 14hh pony, really old fashioned type of pony, lots of substance, he will lead from a horse or lead a pony, bought him to lead my daughter on a small pony, he is a very guine pony with lots of potential, he is just wasted with me, he has a lot to offer to the right home.

He has hunted with the Zetland and will cross any country, he is very mannerly but not suitable for a novice rider.

He needs a knowledgeable home he comes with some tack and rugs

He loves work and is a pleasure to do in all ways. Hacks alone and in company. Don't be put off by his age - he still has so much to give.

Woody is looking for his forever home where he can be adored and teach a new jockey how to ride! He would be a fantastic addition to any family !

Only for sale as he has been outgrown and we don't have anyone to ride him anymore and he is nowhere near ready to retire!

Plenty more photos and videos available.

Please get in contact for more Information.

Super Hunt / PC / Dressage / SJ / Show / WHP / Event pony, proven across the disciplines

Suitable mother / daughter share

Ref #: 247862

  • Various placings 3rd - 6th in Prelim classes, percentages up to 70%
  • Clear rounds at 80cm
  • Been out with Kent and Surrey Bloodhounds

  • Clear rounds at 80cm
  • Been out with Kent and Surrey Bloodhounds

Merrie Middleton (aka Tony the pony) is a really versatile chap, he has proven himself across the board and is ready to fulfil his full potential in any sphere.
I have owned Tony since a 4yo and know his full riding history as I have broken him and produced him myself.
Since November 2019 he has completed multiple beach rides, sponsored rides, training clinincs, dressage competitions (prelim level), hound exercise/hunting meets, show jumped, cross country schooled and been used as a general leisure pony/happy hacker for various people from my yard.

Tony rides into a light contact and has a soft mouth, he is easy to get onto the bit even for the younger riders. He is responsive to the leg out hacking, however occasionally needs a little more encouragement off the leg in the school but I certainly wouldn't class him as lazy. He has an expressive walk and relaxed rhythm, the trot is active and the canter is becoming more and more uphill as he develops into his prime. Snaffle mouthed at all times.

Tony shows a lot of promise in the dressage/show ring. He achieved 70% at Prelim level (3rd out of a large class) and still has plenty of margin for higher marks. He has a good depth of chest, broad shoulders and appropriate bone to make him suitable for the show ring as a WHP/ SHP. Clean limbed. Last time I put a stick to him he measured in at 140cm (just shy of 14hh). Despite his short stature he would easily carry a rider up to 12 stone so would suit a mother-daughter share, he takes your leg up so even taller riders wouldn't look out of place on him.

Tony has schooled round 90cm fences and produced clear rounds at 80cm level. Due to Covid we haven't been able to compete at SJ like I originally planned so he is yet to compete against the clock. Despite this, he is nimble and quick so would easily excel as a future teenagers BS pony as he has scope and technique to progress beyond 1m tracks. He is growing in confidence towards fillers with every outing, he will occasionally have a look at the first few fences but once he is in his rhythm he will lock on and take you round - unfortunately our course training has been interrupted by lockdown restrictions therefore inhibiting progress over bigger tracks. Tony would be better suited to a competent jockey to further his career in this field. He has taken novices over fences at home and is quite forgiving, but he is a sensitive soul and wouldn't tolerate an unbalanced rider for too long before losing confidence. He has schooled round Felbridge and Pyecombe's courses so has seen a wide variety of fillers and spooky jumps.

Tony has schooled over various solid fences and seen ditches, water, steps and skinnies. He is much more confident with a lead but has schooled round XC courses solo too, with a less experienced rider he would do well for a season's hunting to gain him confidence jumping solid obstacles.

Tony is really sensible in large groups of horses, never fizzy or strong. Good to hack alone/in company/in open fields/roads, familiar with all farm traffic. He will lead or go behind, always pulls up. He will go at the back of the hunt or right up front, not phased by other horses whizzing past him.

Tony is a saint to handle, he leads politely for even the smallest of handlers, will stand to be fussed all day. Good to bath/clip/shoe/load/plait/travel/for vet/for dentist. Really good on the ground at shows/events - will wait patiently with a haynet for his turn if travelling with another.

Good doer, will live in or out, very adaptable sort.

His only flaw is that if he becomes stressed/worried it can manifest itself as spookyness under saddle - however it is easily manageable with a consistent rein contact and positive use of leg! at his worst he is capable of a sharp spin and occasionally will buck to the riders leg in canter transitions (with an unfamiliar rider) but usually this is as a result of tension/nerves on his behalf, a firm but sympathetic approach is needed for this boy. He has had plenty of different riders on him but can be particular about who he likes and who he doesn't like!


Amazing Schoolmaster

Top competition pony from lower levels to BE90s, BS Disc

  • The most amazing pony!
  • He is the perfect schoolmaster to make the step up from 70/75cms to 90s and have lots of fun

Mr REE - The most amazing pony! We bought him for my 10yr old daughter in 2019 and the first show they went to they qualified for the PC Grass Roots SJ Champs individually and then went onto qualify for the PC Grass Roots Eventing champs in the team. They then went onto being placed individually 4th in the Eventing Champs, team 5th and just having one pole in the JO of the final of the individual SJ Champs.

He has been a complete rosette magnate for Eve! They have qualified and been placed in pretty much everything for Pony Club and NSEA. They were the fastest member to help the School team WIN at the NSEA Nationals. They have competed at the NSEA Arena Eventing Hickstead Champs, National Champs and also qualified again for the NSEA 2020 SJ Champs which are currently postponed to due Covid as well as the NSEA County Champs.

He is a super careful jumper, speedy if you want to be and always competitive.

He has given Eve her first few outings competing BE where they were placed in their first BE80 just before Covid struck. Then came out later on to complete two BE90s clear.

He is not only competitive but is REALLY safe and as a parent I always felt happy sending them off on the cross country to have a fun time.

He formerly competed at BE100s but is a bit older now and happier at BE90 level. He is the perfect schoolmaster to make the step up from 70/75cms to 90s and have lots of fun.

He is 18yrs young this year and in excellent condition.He is in work and ready to go to give a lot of fun to his next jockey.

We were hoping to keep him for Eve to do the NSEA Champs on but she has grown so much that she has now had to move up a size.

  • Fantastic eye catching registered New Forest 14.2hh FOR SALE to a very special family home. Perfect all round Pony Club pony - has done most activities - camps/rallies/schooling/show jumping and dressage clinics.

Loves his jumping, being safe and accurate and is fast against the clock.

Jumping 60/70/80cms with us but easily capable of jumping 90cms and above.

Safe to hack alone or in company and reliable in the heaviest of traffic although most of the hacking we do is on quiet roads and tracks.

Fully up to date with flu vaccinations/teeth and physio. Has full set of shoes and is good with farrier.

This pony has taught our daughter how to be a good rider - within a few weeks of buying him I was happy for them to go out hacking alone as I know he will always look after her. But now, after two and a half years, sadly our daughter has outgrown him, otherwise we would be keeping him for several years yet. He is great fun, is happy to be pampered, washed and brushed but is equally content to be turned out, alone or with others.

He never kicks or bucks and is a gentleman in or out of stable.

This is a heartbreaking decision we have had to make as the whole family adores him so our priority is a top, top class, knowledgeable home where he will be loved and be able to continue to do pony club activities, eventing, show jumping and dressage and to give another child the same confidence and happiness he has given to ours.

He is fit and ready for the 2021 season once Covid restrictions are lifted and ready for his next competitive young rider

Barney is a good straight forward little pony, good confidence giver who can take plenty of graft always loves his work.

Super reliable and loves popping poles and doing whatever he is asked to do.

No surprises with Barney, in full work and ready to be viewed based in Hampshire.

We haven't hunted him but would be ideal for that also and when we bought him were told he had done plenty of hunting.

Rider outgrown is reason for sale we have had him for four years.

Good to clip, shoe and load no vices.

There are so many wonderful things we can say about Jono! He is a delightful, easy going young man and will make a fabulous lifetime friend to the person who is ready to make him their own. He is currently just shy of 14hh and could potentially make 14.1/14.2 as he is still a little croup high.

We purchased Jono last summer as a companion and possible future pony for our daughter however we feel he has a lot of potential. He would benefit with being properly produced as a mother daughter share, possibly a showing home after success as a yearling/2 year old or a light adult ride as he is a full up broad boy. Our daughter is only small at 9 years old and would not do him the justice he deserves due to her age as much as his and she is following her own path jumping.

Jono is imminently 4 years old but proving so very willing and shows our large Draught horses up with his relaxed easy temperament on the ground, ridden and loading. He has just this week been out on a couple of light hacks from the field which he put not a foot wrong with livestock, traffic and so on. Prior to this he has been long lined, lunged and lightly backed-he can walk, trot and canter on the right lead but has been turned away for winter to grow and mature. I don’t see my daughter being able to put her own stamp on him inline with his age and maturity so a suitable loving home is sought.

His lineage are all pure newforest and his mothers half sister is an impeccable eventing and pony club type. He is up to date with vaccinations, farriery and wormer.

If you would like to know more or require any more information please contact me but he will only go to the very best and knowledgeable of homes.

Monty

New Forest Pony

Ref #: 245925
  • Pony Club Pony / Mounted Games
  • Fun loving with scopey jump
  • Suitable for confident child's second pony or lightweight adult
SOLD!
  • New Forest
  • Chestnut
  • Gelding
  • 14 years
  • 13.3 hands
  • Pony Club Pony / Mounted Games
  • Fun loving with scopey jump
  • Suitable for confident child's second pony or lightweight adult

A fun loving Registered New Forest pony that would suit a confident child or lightweight adult.

Sadly outgrown at his home of the past 6 years. Monty has taken part in various Pony Club activities including Junior & Senior Camps, rallies, SJ, Dressage, XC, Mounted Games and Sponsored Rides. He regularly wins Family Pony as he is truly a family pony – ridden by many different children and adults. Won at 60 and 70 cm SJ. Placed in Intro dressage with very novice rider! Regularly placed / won gymkhana races.

Monty is a fun forward pony that would ideally suit as a second ride. He is very good in traffic and hacks regularly on busy roads. Happy in front or behind and is often led off larger pony/horse or ridden leading another pony.

Could suit a hunting or pony racing family as he is exceptionally fast and sure footed although we have not had the opportunity to do either with him. Currently ridden by 14yr old (since she was about 9 yrs old) with and without saddle over jumps up to 100cm with scope to go higher and also hacked by myself and his owner.

Monty has been ridden by complete beginners on and off the lead rein and on the lunge and is happy to trot over a course of cross poles. Because he loves life and jumping, he is more suited to an experienced rider who is confident. He is currently ridden in a Dutch three ring French link either on mildest or middle setting but is equally happy in a French link snaffle, just a bit stronger when enjoying himself.

Very good being groomed by younger riders but needs an older child or adult when bringing in, loading etc as he can be a bit strong and determined to lead if in a hurry to get to his food! Easy to catch and good to load and travel. Oral Sedation to clip. Easy to keep, living in (a dream to muck out as super neat) or out. Currently living out clipped and rugged and shod in front. He has never needed hind shoes despite regular hacking on roads, rough tracks etc. Monty has been sound with no lameness or illness in his current home of six years. Happy to live on his own or share a field with others. Needs very little food as a good doer and lives on a permanent diet!

During the Summer months Monty can throw his head around a bit if excited / impatient or turning into bright sunlight but we use a nose net in summer which keeps him very settled. He also has Cavalesse (a supplement purchased online) throughout spring and summer and wears a fly sheet to prevent him from getting itchy.

Whilst Monty loves to jump and has scope, he can be a bit unsure of fillers and unknown XC fences and prefers a ‘first look’ sometimes, hence looking for a rider who is not set on competing to win but more on having fun with occasional competitions at lower level or activities such as mounted games, sponsored rides, hunting and pony racing. We feel with more experience and a confident rider he too will continue to become more confident. Sadly my ‘previously very nervous at riding’ daughter outgrew him before she could really get competing on him but is now confidently jumping him at home over lots of fillers etc for fun. Monty has helped my daughter to progress on to her 14.2 and she is now a confident passionate rider who would love to compete Monty if only she were smaller! She still hacks and jumps Monty regularly for fun.

Comes with a full wardrobe of rugs. Two year old Pony Club approved leather saddle and bridle available to purchase.

Video shows Monty jumping recently plus a few older videos towards the end when my daughter was very nervous to show he can jump out of trot very steadily.

Video: https://youtu.be/3NZvBKikvqU

Please only serious enquiries who can offer a five star home. Please enquire initially by email and I can send many more photos. Monty lives at his owners home (my friend) with one other pony and this is a private sale. A loving first class home is essential.

  • We are looking for a pony under 14.1hh that would enjoy a variety of activities

Our tall 9 year old daughter is soon looking to move on from our lovely 12.2hh. She is a kind quiet rider that dotes on her pony. She does a bit of pony club, show jumping and lots of hacking. The pony doesn’t need to be a world beater and please nothing too strong / sharp. Any age considered.

This unicorn will join our small private yard with amazing hacking and just our own horses. We are an experienced horsey family and can offer a 5 star long term home. If experienced mum can pop on to exercise while she’s at school that would be great but not essential.

Loan or sale. We have a decent budget for the right pony. We are in the south west but will travel within reason.

We are happy to wait until after lockdown or a few months if your pony isn’t quite ready yet.

Due to sad retirement of perfect horse I am now putting out feelers for my next horse/pony.

Must be:

  • Kind, sensible, safe & mannerly

  • Excellent to hack alone & in company - calm & generally non-spooky
  • Excellent with tractors/farm traffic & animals
  • Excellent in open spaces (I’d like to ride on moors/beaches & enjoy it!)
  • Polite & easy to do in all ways – to lead & in stable, to catch, mount, shoe, clip etc.
  • 100% to load, travel, unload & well behaved to take out & about
  • Open to 5 stage vetting

Must NOT:

  • Be green, just backed or a ‘project’
  • Be strong, very forward, hot or fizzy in any way
  • Buck, rear, bolt, spin or nap
  • Be bargy or quirky to handle in any way

Prefer a gelding due to other geldings kept but open to any type/breed.

I love schooling/clinics/competing at dressage & leisurely hacking.

I would like to jump but it will only be very low level for variety - a quiet, steady attitude towards jumping would be very much appreciated!

Lifetime, kind, knowledgeable home with own facilities & company offered for your much-loved horse/pony.

Excellent budget once lockdown is lifted. Willing to travel.

  • Part bred New forest

Harley is a beautiful bright bay gelding with eye catching markings. He is lovely to handle, such a sweet and cheeky character.

Harley excels at showjumping. He is quick, careful and clever with lots of scope.

Works very nicely on the flat with three very correct paces and would do a smart dressage test.

Hacks out alone or in company.

He would not be suitable as a first pony, as he is quite busy, forward and likes doing a job. He is going to make someone very lucky! Super brave and would make an awesome competition pony for someone to be up in the placings!!!

Pops comfortably around a 90cm so far. He is very clever with strides and has scope for more

Sadly due to lockdown, I haven’t had the chance to take Harley to a show but he has had a lot of training and been to numerous places for outings.

Good to do in all ways!
