Wanted - Approx 15.2hh Happy Hacker/Family Horse

Wonderful Family Home Awaits A Safe & Trustworthy Character

Ref #: 236909

  • Approx 15.2hh. Middle/Heavyweight/Cob Type, Gelding Preferred.
  • Experienced, Kind, Family Home Offered. Happy To Supply References.
  • To Enjoy Hacking, Pleasure Rides & Low Level Schooling.

I have recently, very sadly, had to retire my wonderful horse due to his ongoing health issues so I am now searching to find another lovely character to join our family & to fill his shoes (he prefers his slippers these days)!! I have been out of the saddle for over a year so I am looking for a horse who is safe & steady & will take care of me.... I'm not as brave as I once was & I don't bounce like I used to, I'm also not as light as I once was so I would like a medium/heavyweight cob type.

Our 8 year old daughter has an amazing little cob who she enjoys hacking & taking part in forest/pleasure rides & beach trips, therefore, I am searching for a horse who would enjoy the same adventures so we can have fun together (& I can leave the bike at home)!

I am not looking for a world beater or the type who needs exercising most days to keep sane, just a lovely, sweet character who will fit in to our very calm lifestyle at home. Must be trustworthy to handle on the ground as the children are often involved in helping with their daily care.

I will also be hacking out on my own at times so he/she must be sensible when out without company. We live in a rural area so meet very little traffic, however, we do occasionally meet farm vehicles so must be sensible in this situation.

I can offer an experienced, loving, forever family home with stabling, all year turnout, post & rail fencing, I would be open to home vetting & happy to supply references if required.

Norfolk based.

Many thanks for reading.

ALLROUNDER WANTED - Looking for my next best friend

16 HH +. Where a teenager is going off to uni and the horses have been there and got the T-shirt. Not looking for anything strong though as I have RA.

Just low-level riding club stuff no more than 90 needed for myself and I enjoyed my riding club camps (flat, jumping X country) and what would do a smart dressage test. And there is a possibility that Zoe my daugher (21) would compete as well.

5 Star home awaits for a horse to come and join me on the farm and it would want for nothing.

No a hugely competitive home but enjoys outings and has had horses for 42 years so not ready to give up yet !! I do have a good budget for the right horse.


WANTED AND STILL LOOKING: Gelding for Working Hunter/Eventing


Ref #: 212234

  • Scopey
  • Working hunter / showjumping
  • Gelding - pref Irish bred - traditional stamp - 15.3hh - 16.3hh
  • Scopey
  • Working hunter / showjumping

Still looking for a gelding to work up through the levels for Working Hunter and a bit of eventing; but capable of doing a bit of everything. Preference is for the traditional Irish stamp i.e. leg in each corner.

Scopey enough to aim to compete at 1.10/20m. Kind, unflappable, sensible, quiet sort required (i.e. an absolute saint) - nothing sharp/dangerous/strong; capable 5ft2 female jockey, but no longer enjoy the battle to sit to something and from time to time I lack confidence.

Height 15.3hh plus to ensure it meets height classification for classes. Age 5 (with some experience i.e. I don't mind a sensible young horse) to 10; I would like him to be the horse I retire on (i.e. see out my riding days); he will have a home for life and be spoilt rotten.

Seriously no TBs/Mares (reliant on private livery). On account of wanting to bring a knowledgeable friend to any viewing, it really needs to be within 2.5 hours of Cirencester. I've tried further afield and I cannot get people to travel that far. Also, Ireland is not a possibility as I will not buy unseen, and with the current self-isolation requirements in Ireland, it makes a trip unfeasible.

Up to 12k budget ideally - and I realise I'm absolutely in the realms of Unicorn Hunting - but would increase slightly for the perfect candidate (please do not contact me with unrealistic prices). Must be open to vetting.
