Wanted: Horses

Looking for a First and Forever Horse / Unicorn

Prefer LWVTB or Initial Share on Current Yard

Ref #: 209776

I am looking for my first (and possibly only) horse.

I am 45 and have been riding 3 years with weekly lessons. I have also previously shared two horses and been responsible for the day to day care of the last one before he was retired.

Ideally I would like a gelding but would consider a non-marish mare.

I am tall and lightweight so anything 14.3 to 15.3 would be preferred.

Dream horse would be a lightweight cob, Connemara, ID, etc

Nothing too young - maybe 8 - 16 years old

Most important is that he/she is not too strong and non-spooky due to my age and ability.

Not looking for a world beater but an all-rounder who enjoys a fuss and is safe and all regards.

I enjoy dressage but would also like a safe hack and a true all-rounder who would enjoy trips to the beach / forest / holidays etc.

I am not much of a jumper currently but in time maybe would like to do very low level XC and SJ.

Good budget and plan to keep on livery with very supportive staff.

Wanted - 5* Home offered for an Ex-eventer / Dressage horse (Novice / Elementary)

  • Do you have an eventer or dressage horse that you no longer want to compete at such a high level?
  • ... or that you want to have quieter life?
  • 16.1hh+

I am an experienced rider who completes at Novice BD and is looking for a horse, preferably a gelding, to do the same and go up to Elementary. A quiet, sympathetic and kind rider who has regular training and would look to complete around once a month.

If your horse loves a bit of eventing, we could do BE80/90 too, although this is not a pre-requisite.

I can offer a loving 5* experienced home, with the horse being kept at home with an arena and fantastic local hacking, plus attending training sessions. Excellent references can be provided from BD and BE accredited coaches.

The horse must be good at travelling on it's own in a big trailer, hack out (alone and in company) in country traffic and be nice to do.

Please contact me if you have a horse you are wanting to place in a lovely home, who will of course receive regular farrier, dentist, physio etc. A loan would be preferred (with full loan agreement), although have a small budget if you'd prefer to sell and home is more important than price. The reason I'm looking at loan/small budget is due to the large financial outlay I've had with current horse.

No rearers, buckers or bolters please!
