Dartmoor Ponies: Adults

WANTED - TINY TOTS / CRADLE / FYFR

100% Genuine, Established, True Child’s Pony

Ref #: 236420
  • Must be established schooling, jumping and hacking
  • Kind and genuine child’s best friend
  • Very knowledgeable, kind private home
  • Must be established schooling, jumping and hacking
  • Kind and genuine child’s best friend
  • Very knowledgeable, kind private home

We are looking for a pony for my petite eight year old daughter that she can progress from just off the lead rein to eventually doing Cradle Stakes WHP.

The pony needs to be absolutely genuine and a true child’s best friend.

My daughter is very gentle and kind with all animals and we want a pony that will in turn be gentle with her. She is very nervous at present so the pony needs to be established and balanced in all paces and jumping, go steady away off little legs but not run into the hand.

We show, but are also very active members of Pony Club so a pony that enjoys variety and can keep a level head when out and about.

Fully sound in wind and limb, no laminitis, sweet itch or health conditions.

Healthy but not limitless budget.

  • Approximately 122cm (12hh), mare or gelding, any breed or type considered

Top Quality Lead Rein / Performance / WHP

  • Huge Scope and Versatility
£4,500 ovno

  • Well Bred Quality Dartmoor Pony Mare
  • Huge Scope and Versatility

Very sad sale of much loved pony. We have owned Bea for 4 years and in that time she has taught both our boys to ride. She is exceptionally well bred out of Shilstone Rocks Atlantic Wind by Springwater Nijinsky (Vean / Moortown bloodlines).

Bea goes on and off the lead and has four established paces. She is schooled professionally twice a week by a lightweight adult. She is the ultimate performance pony for a competent rider, is well schooled so would excel dressage and eats cross country for breakfast. I am certain she would love to hunt.

We have used her in moderation at county level (lead rein), only because we have boys and they won't stand all day in big classes waiting for their turn.

She qualified for the NPS champs this year (lead rein) and for two years in a row - Novice Ridden (we didn't take her).

She is always highly placed (top two) at local level and often in good company. I would put the smallest person on her on the lead, all day, every day. She knows her job and goes to the voice.

Bea loves to jump and we have introduced her to WHP. I feel sure that in the right hands, she would have huge potential in the HOYs WHP classes.

She has won WHP lead rein classes with the boys. She is fast against the clock and has done some show jumping but will require more schooling. She can jump a course of jumps at 70cm easily and with a more experienced rider she has jumped 90 (but needed helping round).

This year our games pony was out of action and Bea had to step in (lead rein) and loved it, she is not afraid of any of the equipment.

My eldest son has won prolifically with her in Young Handler classes and she has been a regular at pony club rallies and camp.

As an example of her versatility we took her to a show last year and she won M and M Small Breeds (In Hand) and went Champion M and M in hand. She won the ridden M and M small breeds. Went clear in the WHP clear round jumping, came second in a huge class (young handler), second in the lead rein, and then competed in the gymkhana and secured numerous wins.

She loves hacking and will go first or last. She will hack through water (we have a number of fords to navigate). She is super with traffic and I would put the smallest child on her on the lead to hack around the block and know she would look after them.

She is not moody and is a kind gentle soul to handle on the ground. She has never been fed by hand and has fabulous manners. She will stand all day on the yard to be groomed.

She has never had laminitis, EMS.

Bea is a big pony, she is forwards and responsive off the leg. She enjoys her work and thrives on it.

She is only for sale as we are overstocked and cannot give her the work she needs to maintain consistency for first ridden.

She can be sharp which is why I am advertising her as a lead rein / performance pony for a more confident rider. She can be strong in canter / coming into a jump.

Having said all this, you will see from the video that both my boys ride her off the lead, however I am careful what situations I put them in. She is more reliable the more work she does. As a lead rein, I cannot fault her - she has been amazing and deserves to be someone else's number one as she is wasted here.

So in summary - wonderful lead rein. Huge potential as a performance pony for a confident lightweight rider, but not a genuine first ridden.

Please no texts - if you are serious about this special pony, then please call. We are away in the UK for a couple of weeks so she can be seen and tried with a friend (Bedfordshire). We will require references and would like first refusal on her in the future. Her tack is available separately.

Please note that if she is not sold, we will do WHP HOYs classes next year so we have time to find this pony a very special home

By the prolific Moortown Countryman Otis is a beautiful pony with eye catching presence who is looking for a new home through no fault of his own

Otis is perfect on the lead rein and is now working very well with an older child off the lead rein, there is no reason why he couldn’t go on to do first ridden

Otis hacks out alone or with company, he has met lots of traffic on our lanes and it hasn’t ever been a problem...he will also happily stand while it passes on the narrow bits

Otis is good to box, for farrier, bath and with clippers. He has had his teeth done this month and is up to date with worming and annual vaccination

Otis turns out with mares and geldings and is happy to stay in or go out on his own

This is a very sad sale as my grandchildren no longer want to do showing and have chosen to keep their whizzy farm ponies instead

Otis will only be sold to the best of homes and will come with Fylde bridle and Rhino rug

Wistmans Passing Glance

Potential Top Class Lead Rein / First Ridden Pony

Ref #: 234227
  • Stunning Registered Dartmoor Gelding sure to excel in any sphere

  • Stunning Registered Dartmoor Gelding sure to excel in any sphere
  • Superb bloodlines - successfully shown Inhand at County Level
  • Fantastic temperament, good with children, farrier, load and fully vaccinated

Stunning 4 yr old Registered Dartmoor gelding for sale due to no fault of his own - he was bought at the beginning of 2019 for the younger children in my family to enjoy but they have since lost interest and this pony is too good to just be a field ornament.

He has been successfully shown inhand since a yearling at County Level and was lightly shown last year:

  • 1st & Reserve Champion NPS Area 14 2019
  • 3rd Royal Windsor Horse Show 2019 .

He is an easy pony to have around with a lovely character, is well behaved with the farrier, good with children, to bath and groom, well behaved and easy to take out to shows and is fully vaccinated.

He was very lightly backed at the end of 2019 and then turned away to mature. He is now being brought back into work slowly and is proving to be very straight forward.

This pony has the potential to excel in any sphere either as a top class Lead Rein / First Ridden Pony or as an all round pony club pony and is now looking to find his new best friend.

Stanley is a super little chap who has been with us since a foal

He was bred out of our family's top class lead rein pony who won us many classes and championships

He has had an easy life so far as we didn't have a small or young enough jockey to ride him

He was broken and then turned away and has now been bought back into work for the last few weeks and is being professionally schooled

He is going very well. He will go forward and up together when asked to or is quite happy to doddle about on a loose rein

He is very good to hack out. Very bold and used to busy traffic

He absolutely loves to be handled and fussed by chidren and is not in the least bit bargy for them to lead around

He could make a top level lead rein pony or equally has the temperament to be a childs best friend and turn his hoof to anything

Rambo needs no introduction to the showing world as he has been there, done that and got the t shirt.

We bought him for Millie to learn the ropes on, unfortunately due to COVID this hasn’t happened this year and Millie has had an enormous growth spurt, so he is now available to his next very lucky jockey.

Can be seen and tried with John Harvey
