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.

Searching For A Trustworthy Family Friend

To Enjoy Hacking, Pleasure Rides & Occasional Schooling

Ref #: 256033
  • Approx 15hh, Ideally Aged Between 8-15 Years
  • M-H/Weight Cob Type Preferred
  • Kind Natured, Suited To A Quiet Family Home Setting
  • Approx 15hh, Ideally Aged Between 8-15 Years
  • M-H/Weight Cob Type Preferred
  • Kind Natured, Suited To A Quiet Family Home Setting

Due to sadly retiring my faithful old friend (who is now our much-loved pet lawnmower!), I am now searching for a steady, trustworthy new friend to enjoy adventures with.  We have a super, kind & knowledgeable family home along with my retired boy, our daughter’s pony & our 2 Shetlands for company. Our horses are treated as part of our family & receive the absolute best of care & I would be happy to provide references & to keep in touch.  

I have ridden for several years & consider myself a knowledgeable & capable rider. However, I am a middle-aged mum who has been mostly out of the saddle over the last couple of years (due to my horse’s ongoing health issues), so I am no longer as confident as I used to be!   I look forward to enjoying much more sedate adventures nowadays, so I am seeking a laid-back best friend who does not require a fast-paced way of life & who doesn’t need riding most days to remain safe & sane.

We will be enjoying leisurely hacks, attending organised pleasure rides, forest/beach trips, the odd bit of schooling but nothing competitive.  I will often be hacking alongside my young daughter on her pony so it is especially important that I find a steady, trustworthy type who I can depend on.  

Our horses are kept at home with us, so a gentle natured character is important, the type who enjoys attention & who is safe to handle on the ground as the children are often around with me.  

We live in a rural area & although we generally meet very little traffic, it is likely to be a tractor/farm vehicle, so it is important that my new horse is trustworthy around this type of traffic.  Although I will often hack out with my daughter or friends, I will also be hacking alone at times so he/she must be willing & safe when hacking out solo.

I appreciate that no horse is ‘perfect’ & I am open to compromise but please do just be honest about any known issues as I won’t buy unseen & would wish to have any potential horse vetted.  

We are based in Norfolk but happy to travel up to around 2.5 hours if videos/photos could be provided beforehand.  I am ideally looking to purchase but would be happy to LWVTB or may consider a long-term loan. I have a sensible budget & very relaxed & loving forever home awaiting the right horse.

Sadly after the horse I had found falling through I am looking for a loan again.

I am looking for something 14.2 plus, and any age as long as the are broken and riding away and easy for one person to manage alone.

Disclosed health issues are not a problem as long as they don’t prevent the horse from competing etc. Would maybe suit a showjumper or eventer looking to step down or for a career change.

I will also possibly consider longer term LWVTB, but won’t be in a position to buy for around 12 months due to just buying a new Horsebox.

If you think you may have something suitable, please message me in the first instance as I don’t get phone signal at home

  • Allrounder - hacking, fun rides, dressage, jumping
  • Safe & Not silly
  • Loving home awaits

I am a 52 year old female who has not ridden much for the last two years due to health issues and a loopy IDx who has become a very expensive field ornament.

Looking to get back into Riding Club Activities and do low level dressage, jumping and perhaps XC if I find my confidence again, along with hacking & fun rides

I am not a nervous rider, once I’m on and I know the horse is sensible I soon get in my stride (if not a bit out of practice). So a horse who is sensitive to its riders needs, but who can step up a gear if required.

My preference is a middleweight CobX type, but as long as it has a bit of bone I’m open. Never had thoroughbreds so not sure my type!

Mid-high 4 figure budget available

  • Gelding (preferably not a deal breaker)
  • 15hh min
  • 7-12 years old (preferably)
  • With a bit of bone (but preferably not a heavy cob)
  • hacks alone (on occasions in company)
  • good with large vehicles especially tractors
