Dealers & Yards

Riverside Horse Sales is a small family run business based in Dumfries, South West Scotland. We started selling horses in 2017 and have been lucky enough to have helped many families find their new horse or pony since then.

We pride ourselves in our honest approach to matching horses to new owners, giving as much detail about each and advising who would match them the best. If we don’t have anyone that matches we will try to find a suitable horse/pony if we can through our trusted contacts. From one family to another, we want you to find the perfect new addition!

We understand not everyone will have bought from a sales yard before, all of our horses and ponies come with a sales contract in place to provide the reassurance you need. We are happy for potential buyers to arrange vettings or any other tests required and can recommend a local well respected vet to carry these out

ELSA

11.3 registered Welsh A 11yr old

Dumfries, Scotland.

Tentatively looking for a new home for our own Elsa - this decision hasn’t been taken easily but she is completely wasted here due to a little boy more Interested In football.

Elsa is that one in a million totally safe can be left for months and jumped straight on pony. Lives out 24/7 or in 24/7 depending what’s required, she is a great companion.

Will stand all day for a kid to groom , bath, hug, love but will fidget with an adult. Brilliant to teach the kids to tack up as patience of a saint ridden and on the ground.

She is best suited to lead rein as she can be nappy off lead rein if she hasn’t been ridden by a competent rider for a while. When I’m regular work she is fine off lead rein - she will be sold as a lead rein pony only for this reasons.

Elsa has done common rides , pony club , been to the beech, forest, rivers , cross country and pretty much anything that’s been asked of her.

She loves her little people.

She has been with us 5 years and made us some amazing memories but is just being wasted it has been a very hard decisions and she won’t go to just anyone.

  • Adieu Z x Kings Master mare
  • Bracket high 9
  • Dumfries, Scotland

Frenchie is a beautifully bred mare who oozes quality. She has three fantastic paces and huge scope.

To work with in the stable frenchie is very affectionate loves a scratch and a fuss.She is very easy to work with and tack up but can be a bit tall for the bridle when she wants!

She is fine to ride after a week off and be jumped straight on. Great to load , catch , groom ect but has been seen to box walk.

Frenchie has just turned four last month and is suitable for an experienced rider to bring on and compete. She is snaffle mouthed. And responsive to the aids.

We have hacked her out alone and she was brilliant in traffic but still looked at washing blowing in the wind , but then she is only four!

Frenchie came with a  recent vetting.

Frenchie done her British novice class last weekend and went double clear with ease - see photos (video available)

We can’t fault frenchie so far she is a pleasure to have around and a joy to watch

Tom - 14hh approx (will measure) 5yo gelding - Dumfries, Scotland

Tom arrived 23/4 and has been an absolute poppet. He is fab in the stable, to groom, tack up, muck out around, catch ect.

To ride Tom is a sweetheart (we have videos of him ridden in previous home by kids) he is straight forward and basic schooling is there. 

Tom was ridden in a snaffle and a flash with our jockey but maybe would need something a bit stronger for a small child. 

He isn’t for a novice as he is only 5yo so still needs to experience life and the world around him but his attitude is fantastic. 

He hacked out alone not a problem, not bothered by traffic but does look at hedges ect as seen in video, again he is only 5! 

In time with life experience Tom will be a pretty unbeatable kids best friend. Such a pleasure to have around.

Bill - 14hh approx

5yo coloured cob

Dumfries,Scotland

Bill arrived 23/4 and has been ridden twice. He is exceptionally sweet to handle and work with, no problem to tack up groom etc.

Bill is good to mount and ride. He has basic schooling and has a great little pop on him which will get better with practice! Bill can do a hump into canter (see the video) this will make him not for a novice however if he was brought on a bit he could easily be suitable for a mother daughter share. 

He would be great for a second pony, pony club, eventing, hacking , beach rides, hunting etc

Good but forward to hack alone, we haven’t tried him in company but don’t see it being a problem. He is good xc also. However, all being said Bill is only 5 so will need brought on and taught the ropes.

We will update more on Bill the more we work with him.


'SALSA' 16.1hh 10 year olds chestnut mare


Ref #: 252891
  • SALSA
  • 16.1hh 10yr ISH X WB MARE
  • Dumfries Scotland
£6,000
  • ISH / WB
  • Chestnut
  • Mare
  • 10 years
  • 16.1 hands
  • SALSA
  • 16.1hh 10yr ISH X WB MARE
  • Dumfries Scotland

Salsa arrived 13/5. Salsa is being sold as a project - she could be very easy or need a bit more work. We also feel she needs her teeth done and to see physio - however this will take time and if we get her sorted her bracket will increase a lot!

When ridden salsa is forward going and sensitive in the mouth but a snaffle mouth. She is good to mount and responsive to the aids. She is good walk and trot but can cow kick into canter. We would like to think she just needs regular work and to help get her going.

She has been used as a broodmare in Ireland and done fun rides and training shows inbetween. So she is green, but her movement is absolutely beautiful.

To work with in the stable she is good loves a cuddle and a groom but wary of sudden movements. She can box walk if stressed but she has had a big upheaval so feel once she has had time to settle and be worked properly and regularly she will be an amazing mare to have around.

She is a real proper stamp with the paces to follow.

He jumped the top of our wings (3ft6) effortlessly. He does need more handling but is sweet and will come quickly with regular handling.

He is an exciting prospect.
