HorseQuest Wall of Fame

  Earlier this year HorseQuest set out to find successful partnerships that came about through the website and we were absolutely overwhelmed with the amount of happy horses and ponies that were found through HorseQuest – so thank you to everyone who shared their stories with us.

After a public vote we’re delighted to announce the winners of the HorseQuest Wall of Fame – as chosen by you!


We found Maesyfelin Miss Elle, aka Twinkle through HorseQuest back in May, she is my daughter's first pony and what a pony she is! She has a genuine love of children and really wants to please, she is golden when ridden and in the field, well-mannered when stabled which means that my daughter is able to care for her with little assistance from myself - she is a credit to the two young girls who owned her previously. My daughter wanted to add “She is my best friend even though she can be cheeky - the other day she stole the treats out of the boot of the car! It took time to find me a pony but we have found the one for me. I LOVE HER!”
Pip has exceeded all the expectations I ever had of her and more. I saw her advertised on HorseQuest in June 2012 and loved her as soon as I tried her. Since then we have gone from strength to strength, she is a fabulous allround pony, competing in BE, BD and BSPS WHP. She is also the loveliest pony to have around and is known on the yard as 'Perfect Pip'! She is definitely a one in a million pony and I am so lucky to have her. She always try's her heart out, whether it's jumping or dressage and has given me the most fun any horse could offer! At just 7 years old she has so much more ahead of her and I am looking forward to 2015!
I bought Kavanaghs Miss America (Dyllis) from an advert on Horse Quest as an unbroken 5 year old. As a youngster she had shown very successfully, this continued with us and at our first show we took home Reserve Supreme of Show. We didn't back her in that first year, as she simply was not ready, but waited until the following winter. She took to ridden work like a duck to water, she loves finally having a proper job to do and especially enjoys hacking out and trips to the beach. Now we’ve completed our second ridden season with fantastic results qualifying for numerous shows including the RIHS 2015. It's been a long road to get us to where we are today, there really has been blood, sweat and tears, but it has been more than worth it - Dyllis really is my horse in a million!
Tiny Tom was found on HorseQuest and he has been a pony in a million, taking my then 10 year old daughter to her first 90cm SJ classes, up to BE90, qualifying for Badminton Grass Routes in their first season (both aged 11) then the pair of them aged 12, finished 16th with a fabulous double clear at the Grass Routes. Progressing up to 100 and then taking her, aged 13 round her first pony trial. He is a total gem and there is a sibling fight going on as younger sister is now determined it’s her turn to have the wonderful Tom!! He will never be sold, he has a home with us for life as he is one in a million and we couldn’t imagine life without him! Thank you HorseQuest!

Since buying Mac in 2011 via HorseQuest we have had so much fun and success and achieved above and beyond all that I had done previously. After establishing our partnership at unaffiliated level, we qualified for BD regional finals at prelim, coming 6th in the regionals. This year we go to the regionals at novice in August, and are now getting good results at Elementary. We qualified for the BE Badminton Grassroots finals, and competed there in 2013, and have 3 qualification slots at BE90 and 100 for 2014. We have won at BE90 on two occasions with many other top 10 results, and were 6th on our last outing BE100. After some success at local working hunter, we are looking to try the 'Search for a Star' workers this summer. Having owned and worked with many horses in the past, Mac is definitely my 'horse of a lifetime. I owe him so much for all the fun and competitive success, but also for completely re building my confidence from Dec 2013, after I fell badly from a friends horse whilst jumping, breaking my pelvis and neck. I was back on Mac in under 6 weeks, but only rode him for some time, and still suffer confidence blips jumping anything other than him! Mac is always happy in his work, and is a huge character, I wouldn't swap him for anything!


We bought Westfirle Red Kite at the beginning of May. When I first saw his picture I knew we just had to have him! We made the 4 hour trip down to Sussex with the horse box to view him. He didn't disappoint, he was even more beautiful than in the picture, my daughter rode him and to my delight she loved him too. She after a bit of negotiation he came home with us. Our first show was a local show, Henry was a star, and he won the m & m lead rein and was mini champion. Our next show was the Royal Three Counties, unfortunately we didn't get placed, but we carried on contesting the Hoys classes gaining a 6th and 7th place in our next two shows. Henry had already qualified for the Royal International Horse Show when we bought him, as we had never been before we were going to enjoy the day and try our best to get a place. Henry was rather enjoying the atmosphere as he had never been to such a big show we weren't sure how he would cope. Our turn in the ring came, there was 28 forward, our first trot went well and the judges seemed to like him, we then did our shows which also went to plan, we could now only hope. They started to call the numbers out in reverse order, they were getting closer to first place and I thought we had done our best but we hadn't got a place, but that was ok, we'd had a great couple of days and it was an amazing experience. Then they called 165 as the winner - OMG!!! That was us, we had only gone and WON...our first ever Royal International and we had Won, not only won we were mini champion as well! We could not believe it, still can't. What an amazing, overwhelming experience. We are all still on a high, the best experience of our showing days so far. Thank you Henry and thank you to his breeder for selling him to us.
