One of the main issues that RDA groups face is finding an Equine to suit the needs of the participants in their group.

We are regularly contacted with offers of Equines that are ‘the ideal RDA horse or pony’ when actually what is ideal for one group may not be for the next. We are trying to move away from the stereotypical view that RDA Equines are elderly and somewhat static, our horses and ponies need to be fit, healthy and athletic to cope with the lifestyle in an RDA group.

They can range from smaller, forward going ponies to weight carrying cobs and can take part in a range of disciplines from Riding to Carriage Driving, Vaulting to Show Jumping and Endurance.

If you contact an RDA Group about your Equine please be prepared to fill in an Equine Initial Interest Form which will ask you many questions about your horses’ temperament, health history, experience and lifestyle. Many groups will prefer to have an equine on trial to make sure they are suitable for the job.

For long term loans and purchases they will also be required to have a Pre-Purchase Examination.

If you think your equine has what it takes, please contact one of the groups below.

13.1, Handsome bay gelding. 18 years old this year. Has been there, done it and got the t-shirt.

We have had Eddie for nearly three years now. He is a superstar pony and we love him so very much!! He has worked in two riding schools, our one and one before we knew him. He has also had private homes and is loved dearly by those people too....we would all love to keep in contact with him.

He is a real character and will try his hoof at absolutely everything. He is showing no signs of being 18 years of age and I am sure he has years and years left to give!! Since he has been with us he has done a bit of everything including Riding School work, Pony Club Camp, Cross Country Schooling, Clinics, Shows, Musical Rides, Dressage to Music, lots of hacking, gymkhana games and he has even had a go at Polocrosse. He loves it all and does everything with the hugest smile on his face. I have never once seen him put his ears back at anyone and he would never dream of kicking. He is lovely to handle on the ground. He is never sick or sorry and just smiles his way through life!!

I have never ever seen him stop at a fence and I have known him a long time!! He will also work in an outline if the rider is capable. He has so much to teach someone!! HOWEVER....he is NOT a ‘just off the lead rein’ pony.He has a character, a sense of humour and he definitely has something about him. He happily looks after lead rein riders for us in the riding school but we then skip a few rider levels. His next rider level would be a child who is competent in canter and likes to pop some fences because he can whizz up then and get excited. Having said that he has so many fans here and I know there is not going to be a dry eye when he leaves.

He has been turned away for the Winter due to Covid but is now back in and getting fit again.

He is fantastic to clip, shoe, worm, plait, load and travel.

Unfortunately Covid has meant I have had to make some tough decisions and this decision has been so incredibly hard. He will only be going where he will be treated like a prince and want for nothing. He lives in or out but you will need to have a stable available for him and he will need company.

He would make the most fantastic Pony Club Pony for the right rider. He LOVES going to parties and jumping is his most favourite thing in the world. He also loves hacking out.

Please contact us for more details. We are in Cornwall.

Ref #: 248520

  • Desperately looking to loan (short or long term - I’d be happy with anything!) or lwvtb.
  • Any type or age considered as long as the pony is a true confidence giver off the lead for a very kind and keen but nervous child.

Sadly, the wonderful pony that I bought to take my daughter off the lead is lame and it is going to be a lengthy ordeal. My daughter is understandably heart broken.

The pony would have a very knowledgeable home and be treated as an individual with love and respect.

We are active members of the Pony Club and can supply plenty of references if required.
