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

  • Brilliant hacking out alone and in company

Lily arrived with us last winter very nervous she was turned away for summer and brought into work in October we worked away quietly with her and are pleased to say she has really settled and started to learn her job.

She is walk, trotting, cantering, doing poles and just started jumping. She is brilliant hacking out alone and in company she has been perfect including with tractors and lorries ( see video ) we feel she would excel in a hacking / allrounder home.

Done her first fun ride and was foot perfect. 

Lily now needs a quiet experienced rider to bring her on , with work we have no doubt she will be a brilliant pony. 

Good to bath , groom, load , tack up and generally working with.

NOT SUITABLE FOR A NOVICE


Alfie

Alfie arrived the 3rd June and has been great since he arrived. He has been on a ride out with us (fun ride), hacked alone being absolutely fine with traffic he gets a bit impatient standing so best to just keep moving.

Yesterday Alfie jumped a small course (including an iffy water tray type jump!) he then finished off with the tarp practice. Alfie's flatwork isn’t great as it’s not what he has been used for so not ready for a Grand Prix dressage test before anyone asks!

To work with he is very affectionate and loves a bit of a fuss, he can be a fidget to tack up but he has only been here a week! Good with farrier - he had a set of front shoes put on but barefoot on the backs. Good to catch , happy out alone or in company. 

Alfie was in the same place from a yearling where he done all the town festivals and some hunting and general riding club stuff then in 2020 went to a school and is now with us. 

Best suited to a capable teenager or adult wanting to do some hunting or riding club.

Jupiter arrived in January and was nervous and underweight, we have quietly worked away with him and feel he is ready to start looking for his forever.

Jupiters main issue was mounting in the arena we have worked hard and feel he is ready to meet his new family. Due to this he is not for a novice. Once on he is fantastic, he does need schooling on his canter transitions but he is fantastic to hack and with traffic - alone or in company.

Mickey has been with us for a while and is just back from our friend riding him and now being ridden by our groom for common rides. 

He is lovely to work with on the ground , good to tack up, groom , muck out, clip , bath , load ect. 

To ride Mickey is quite lazy.He can hold a beautiful contact when forward as he does have beautiful paces. And he has HUGE scope ! We have videos of him riding forward over decent size tracks in his previous home I’m happy to share. With work he would be a brilliant dressage prospect or allrounder. 

He is better over rustic fences but will jump coloured if you push him on. He would be a brilliant hunt horse , workers or with work event. 

To hack Mickey is unphased by most things but still can have a look but doesn’t do anything stupid and is brilliant with traffic. Will go alone or in company 

Mickey is brilliant to load but needs a 3.5 or an un partitioned trailer to travel In.
