HORSE VIEWING SERVICE

Are you keen to buy a horse, but lack the experience to know if it’s going to be right for you or has a  good attitude to it’s work? Do you wish to purchase unseen? 

I am r pleased to aanounce I  am now happy to view horses on behalf of clients at yards within the South East (reasonable  distance of GU6 7SW) I have many years experience working on dealing yards, with competition horses as well as having kept and bred my own to a high level and produced young jumping ponies on through the grades running my own dealing yard for four years.  This means there really isn’t a lot that gets past me, I’m very good at spotting things which private buyers often wouldn’t. I am happy to view horses at any yard within the home counties, either as an independent viewing or with clients present on an advisory basis. This is not a substitute for getting a good vet in to vet each horse before purchase, but will give you an insight in to horse’s attitude and behaviour and suitability fir your job. I am happy to handle, ride, watch others ride or see how the partnership fits together. 

This service could be invaluable for those considering purchasing unseen, or those who are unable to make a decision. I will give fair, honest assessments of each horse presented and all findings to be discussed over the phone with the purchaser. Videos can also be taken. 

The cost for this service is £30 per hour plus £.50p a mile travelled from my base in GU6 7SW.

Of course I would advise all purchases are subject to a pre purchase vets examination. 

 

To book a viewing please call me on - 07977 431829 or 01483 613686

DOTTIE


Ref #: 240795
  • Super little pony who is perfect on the lead rein
  • She would be a lot of fun at pony club and local shows
£2,000
  • Spotted
  • Mare
  • 10 years
  • 12 hands
  • Super little pony who is perfect on the lead rein
  • She would be a lot of fun at pony club and local shows

Super little pony who is perfect on the lead rein but probably more of a second pony off of lead rein.

Dottie is a lovely girl who has worked in an Irish riding school prior to being imported.

She has done the majority of her work on the lead rein and is therefore brilliant with a tiny tot on the lead rein. Off of it she is quite forward going and would suit a slightly more competent child, she does nothing wrong but moves off the leg and enjoys her work.

She enjoys jumping round a small course of fences and has scope to go on.

She would be a lot of fun at pony club and local shows.

Dottie hacks out well both on and off the lead rein and will also ride and lead. She is happy to pop  logs in the woods and is good in traffic.

She is a lovely person to handle, good to box, catch, clip , shoe etc. And happy to stand and be fussed all day.

  • Super little horse who with the right rider will go on to be a serious competition horse

15.3hh bay Gelding by Don VHP

Henry is a late starter through no fault of his own. He is a lovely ride who goes beautifully on the flat and would do a wonderful test.

He has three uphill balanced paces and a really nice mouth. He has started his jumping career with us and is popping round a small course with plenty of scope to go on and jump BS in the right home. 

Currently seen at livery with Carl Belson and Luke Thompson, to arrange to view please call Carl directly on 07867 499499 or Luke on 073934 31893


OSBORN


Ref #: 240792
  • Cracking fun New Forest who will go and do any job
SOLD!
  • New Forest
  • Dapple grey
  • Gelding
  • 6 years
  • 13.1 hands
  • Cracking fun New Forest who will go and do any job

136cm ( would JMB to 133cm) dapple grey registered New Forest gelding 6yrs (registered name is Woodsheal Osborn, by Farriers Fingerprint out of Oakwood Rose II)

Cracking fun New Forest who will go and do any job. Osborn is a very cute pony whose think would do a great job at the M & M WHP, he has enough scope to go and jump junior BS or would be a lot of fun just doing PC or RC activities and hunting.

He is nicely schooled and works on the bridle in all three paces, he needs a fairly strong rider to get the best out of him as if he thinks he can get away with it will be a bit lazy! With an educated rider on top he sits nicely in front of your leg and works away beautifully. He has a nice mouth and isn’t strong or silly.

Osborn has come to us as he was purchased by an older lady who has found that he’s the type of pony who thrives on work, and unfortunately she hasn’t been in the position to give him as much as he needs. He’s a clever chap who loves to be challenged and learns quickly.

Osborne has a super jump and a great technique over a fence, he is jumping round a small coloured and natural course with us and has been XC schooled. He really enjoys his jumping and would very much like a home where he can do more of this!

He hacks out alone and in company and has been great in all traffic met to date with us. Osborn has been autumn hunting with us and very much enjoyed his morning, he thought hunting was great and again would like to do more!

He is easy to handle, box, catch, shoe, clip etc. Ideally he’s looking for an active home who will keep him busy with many different activities.

BESS


Ref #: 241400
  • 14hh 8 yrs cob x mare
  • Fun family pony who would do a bit of everything PC, local shows, fun rides etc
  • Ride and drive!
£4,250
  • Coloured
  • Mare
  • 8 years
  • 14 hands
  • 14hh 8 yrs cob x mare
  • Fun family pony who would do a bit of everything PC, local shows, fun rides etc
  • Ride and drive!

Bess was homebred locally by a family and has been much loved and has been with them her whole life. She has attended lots of local shows and events and been a lot of fun.

Registered CHAP so could go and have some fun coloured showing. Sadly she never quite grew to the height they expected and so she has come to us to find a smaller rider who will continue to give her as much fun as she has had already.

She has been on numerous fun rides, beach rides and local shows. Bess is more of a kick on ride than anything and is very steady.

She can work very sweetly on the flat but is more than happy to pootle round. She loves her jumping and has a great technique over a fence, she wakes up a bit when jumping and really enjoys it. She has competed in her past home up to 70cm but we feel with a bit more work and schooling would go round a bigger track. She would be scopey enough if sharpened up a bit to do some junior BS, PC teams etc.

She is ride and drive and has been pleasure driven for fun in her last home, we are told she is very easy although we haven't tested this ourselves.

Bess is brilliant to hack and will happily go both alone or in company, she’s good in traffic but hasn’t seen a lot of huge lorries so needs a bit of reassurance when they come past.

She is easy to handle, box, shoe, catch, clip etc. But has been a bit spoilt and therefore can be a bit cheeky, once she knows to mind her manners she’s fine but will need someone to be Firm but fair with her while she’s settling in. She is happy to live in or out and is a good doer.

CHARLIE


Ref #: 241819
  • Fun, honest cob who loves his work
  • Simply lives to go hunting
  • Very brave and scopey
£3,850
  • Cob
  • Grey
  • Gelding
  • 9 years
  • 14.3 hands
  • Fun, honest cob who loves his work
  • Simply lives to go hunting
  • Very brave and scopey

HW cob gelding.

Fun hunter or all rounder. Charlie has been in the same home for the past three years where he has been owned by a teenage girl. She has sadly now discovered boys and no longer wants to ride so Charlie is looking for a new human.

He’s a fun, honest cob who loves his work. He isn’t stuffy or kick along and is nicely off the leg so needs a rider who wants a heavier type with a bit of engine.

He has spent the past three years hunting with the Chid and Lec hunt and having fun hacking, sponsored rides etc. Charlie hacks alone and in company and is brilliant in traffic. Charlie simply lives to go hunting, he absolutely loves it and knows his job inside out.

He has been out twice so far with us this season and jumps everything asked, he’s very brave and scopey, making nothing of timber, ditches and hedges. He would suit a teenager or small adult on the hunt field. He’s good round hounds and stands at the meet nicely.

Charlie would simply love a home where he can continue hunting and enjoying life. He is happy to ride in the school and although he hasn’t had a huge education on the finer art of dressage is more than happy to try.

With a capable rider he will learn very quickly to go correctly. He is happy to jump coloured fences and again is bold and not bothered by fillers etc. Solid fences are definitely more his thing though and he loves cross country. He hasn’t done pony or riding club but would be happy to do a bit of this and would enjoy it.

Excellent to catch, clip, box, shoe etc. Really easy going on the floor and would be one that mum could cope with no bother during the week. 

Price includes tack and rugs.

ED SHEERAN

  • To make 14hh Sabino roan cob gelding 3yrs
  • Super smart little chap who will turn his hoof to anything and do it with a smile on his face!

Ed has been with us since he was a weanling, as a baby he had a ginger forelock and ears and looked like his was wearing glasses hence his name! (I have loads of foal photos as he was so cute!)

He has been very well handled since day one. He is therefore great to handle, loves fuss and will stand all day being groomed. He’s good to foot trim, has met clippers with no fuss, loads and travels well and has been walked out in hand in traffic. He’s really not fussed by a lot!

We absolutely love him and think he’s quite a special little chap and so would love to see him in a long term home being brought on and having loads of fun.

He has been lightly broken and ridden away and was one of the easiest ponies I’ve ever started. He’s got a great brain, very trainable temperament and wants to please. He’s nicely off the aids but not stupid or sharp and has three very good paces. He will do a super test as he’s built very naturally on the bridle and carries himself incredibly well.

He has trotted over coloured poles and will enjoy his jumping. I would love to see Ed either going off and doing lots of pony club or riding club and giving someone a lot of fun and being their best friend.

Sad sale as we have had him so long but it’s time for him to find his own human who will worship him!

Currently in light work under saddle and if not sold by mid October will be turned away till spring to further mature.

Price will only increase as he does more, but home is of utmost importance!


SHADOW CHASER II (TWIX)


Ref #: 240788
  • 16.2hh 10 yrs ISH Chestnut gelding by Cobra

  • Super amateurs competition horse, event or show jump, possible field masters hunter
  • Showjumped BS up to Newcomers with £131 Act. And 72 BS points
  • Ready to BE next season

Super amateurs competition horse, event or show jump, possible field masters hunter.

Twix belongs  to a good friend who has had him for the past two years, she bought him as her last fun horse and now at sixty something is hanging up her boots, he’s too nice a horse to be sat in the field and so he’s come to us to find a new home where he can continue having lots of fun with his new human.

Twix has been and done a bit of everything, he has Showjumped BS up to Newcomers with £131 Act. And 72 BS points, he has been to several stay away shows including Blue Chip Champs and been a good boy. He is a very genuine horse to jump and will go off any stride, is happy to take a miss and will help his rider out if they need it, he would be a super horse to introduce someone to BS and gives his rider a lot of confidence jumping.

Twix is well schooled on the flat with basic lateral work and changes established, he is more than capable of producing a good test and is very easy to ride. He loves going cross country and has attended several unaffiliated one day events, he is more than ready of going BE next season after a winter getting to know his new jockey. Again, he never says no and will jump whatever is asked of him giving a lot of confidence.

Twix has hunted a handful of times, he prefers being towards the front of the field and would make a super field masters horse.

Twix hacks alone and in company and is brilliant in heavy traffic, his last home was next to an A road so he’s seen it all, well used to motorway bridges and other horrible things.

Recently he has been mainly ridden by a sharer who has taken him to numerous sponsored rides, RC camp and lots of unaffiliated things and had a lot of fun with him, sadly she isn't in the position to buy him. He is a nice, friendly chap to have on the yard and will live in or out, his only downside is that when he gets a bit stressed he has been seen to weave, once settled this only really shows itself at feed times but he is the sort of horse who likes routine and will take while to settle in to his new home. He is good to catch, box, shoe, clip etc.

VERA

  • Tries her best to please
  • Will do all RC / PC activities
SOLD!
  • Irish
  • Mare
  • 4 years
  • 15 hands
  • Been out Autumn hunting with us - has proved herself to be safe & sensible
  • Tries her best to please
  • Will do all RC / PC activities

15hh now to mature to 15.1 coloured Irish Mare 4 yrs.

Super young mare who will go on and do any job. She is working well on the flat and is naturally built on the bridle with three active paces.

She is jumping round a small course of coloured fences and is super bold (photos do her no justice at all!)

Vera is a really fun ride and has enough in the tank without being strong or silly.

With us in the past few weeks she has mainly been out Autumn hunting with us and has proved herself to be safe and sensible, good with hounds and happy to go anywhere in the field.

She is great to jump out hunting and has popped timber, ditches and a small hedge so far giving a great feel and bringing her rider home smiling.

Everyone who has sat on her loves her as she’s just one of those horses that tries her best to please and she’s got enough in her to satisfy a rider who’s capable but equally isn’t sharp for a rider who is less so.

Vera hacks alone or in company and has been great in all traffic met to date with us.

She’s a really nice person, good to box ( lorry or trailer) catch, shoe, clip etc. And happy to live in or out.

Vera is a lovely girl who will do all RC / PC activities, hunt all day, Grassroots event or SJ.

Good home wanted as everyone loves her! 


TIA


Ref #: 241454
  • Working exceptionally well on the flat
  • Popping round a small course of coloured fences with ease
  • Been autumn hunting with us 3x now - proven to be super safe
£8,000
  • Irish Draught
  • Mare
  • 4 years
  • 16 hands
  • Working exceptionally well on the flat
  • Popping round a small course of coloured fences with ease
  • Been autumn hunting with us 3x now - proven to be super safe

Full up 16hh now (will mature to at least 16.2hh) grey registered ID Mare 4 yrs

The most lovely and genuine youngster you could hope to find! Tia is up to weight without being too chunky or coarse, she is a real old fashioned practical sort of Irish Draught mare.

She is the type of horse that you just ask and she does, even if she has never tried it before. She has three good paces and is working exceptionally well on the flat for a young ID.

She has a good trot and a natural canter. Tia is popping round a small course of coloured fences with ease, she never says no and keeps a great rhythm down to a fence.

She has popped round our XC fences also with no fuss. She has been autumn hunting with us Three times now and has proven to be super safe, mannerly and made for the job.

She is happy round hounds or in the field and has taken a variety of riders safely. Out hunting she has popped timber, ditches and a couple of hedges and has been polite while queuing to jump, not strong and hunted in a snaffle.

She is the sort who will take a more nervous novice rider safely following hounds (once she’s learnt her trade a little more as she’s still a baby!) she hacks alone and in company has been brilliant in all traffic met to date with us.

On the ground she continues to be polite and well mannered being good to box, catch, shoe, clip etc.

This is the type of horse that if she was a person I would invite round for supper! An absolute gem of a mare and deserves a top class home!
