  • Sane sensible dressage / hacking horse
  • 15.2 - 16.1 Mare or Gelding
  • Mare or Gelding and not too worried about breeding

I am looking for a safe horse to have fun with having lost mine. I hack, a lot, and generally alone, and also compete at affiliated dressage so doesn't have to be something which jumps. I have competed to Medium before and am looking to affiliate again.

Must be sensible to hack alone and in all weathers (wind and rain!) and open spaces, not too spooky and definitely not nappy or one which has to be ridden every day, although that said I do work them 5-6 days a week. I tend to also compete solo so it must be something easy to take out alone in a trailer.

I am not too worried about breeding but must move correctly and be able to progress up through the levels. Preferably aged 6/7-10 and not worried if its a mare or a gelding.

Loads and travels well and mannerly in all respects - shoeing, clipping and to handle and catch in general. Also something which is happy to be out during the day in winter and out at night in the summer and not start doing death laps after 3 hours out! I have access to really good trainers and am at a very lovely yard with great facilities and loads of off road hacking. If you think you have something which fits the bill, please get in touch.

I am in the South West but happy to travel to the right horse, although obviously would prefer something in that region. I would happily consider a RoR prospect also.

I feel I am looking for something impossible here, I just want something easy and FUN, something I can put on the trailer and go hacking on Salisbury Plain or take out and do some dressage on in return for a 5* life!

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.
