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

George arrived in May unbroken, we then sent him away to be broken and he arrived back with us 3 weeks ago. He is certainly talented and has huge scope.

To ride he is green so is more woah than go and very easy going. He is a bit fussy to mount but once your on he is brilliant, walk, trot, canter and popping small jumps. He tries hard and does what’s asked. He has a fantastic temprement.

Hacks alone and in company

George is a sort hard to find with good strong bone but athletic enough over a fence. With patience and time he will be a top class prospect for the future.

He is young so just needs experience in general day to day life. Good to catch, groom and generally work with.

Robyn arrived with us a few months ago and has been in and out of work due to lack of time. She is amazing to hack alone and in company, green but willing in the school, can jump but we haven’t really explored this yet:

Robyn would be an amazing hunt/ hacking or with work pony club pony.

Good to work with / catch / load / bath / farrier ect.

NOT FOR A NOVICE.

Barney joined our team to be a permanent member but he is smaller than originally thought and feel he needs a smaller jockey to make him stand out in the ring.

Barney is 8 but still very green, he needs schooled on he is NOT FOR A NOVICE. Barney is a real eye catcher and will excel once he has been schooled on. He has good basics but his canter is very on the forehand and needs work over the winter.

He is good to hack alone and in company as long as your leg is there to support. Good with traffic ect.

He is easy to work with at the yard and away and a real character. He can be nervous if your too quick around him but once he has settled into a place he is brilliant. A real firm favourite. Loves attention and cuddles.

Barney has been to a few shows and has been impeccable picking up a few rosettes along the way.

Annual height certificate done last month. Barney is easy to rug, load / travel & shoe.

Up to date with back , teeth and shoes.

Ice arrived in June. He is a very affectionate loving boy who loves a fuss and is a pleasure to work with.

To ride he has all the basics walk, trot and canter and amazing scope although still finding his technique between the fences. Hacks out alone and in company brilliantly. Ice was broken as a 4yo then turned away due to other commitments , he was brought back into work at the start of the year and has done a few fun rides and training shows in Ireland.

He was foot perfect on the fun ride we took him on and could not be faulted from start to finish. He would be a brilliant hunt / Marshall horse.

He will need an quiet, light in the leg rider to bring him on and bring him to his full potential. He really is the sweetest boy. He is a forward ride so not for a novice. Full of affection.

**Please note ice was vetted and has passed flexion ect but has 4 sarcoids **

Open to any inspections

  • Bang on bracket 3 May take less for a quick hassle free option

Lily arrived with us at the start of summer and was very nervous so after riding her once or twice we turned her away due to lack of time.

In the last 3 weeks she has came in been lunged, had her teeth done amd also her feet and is now ready to continue with her education.

Please note Lily is a project and needs an experienced rider with time and patience. Someone willing to work away and gain a one on one bond as this is where she starts to come out of her shell. She is not ridden yet and her bracket will increase once she is.

Please note while he teeth were being done the dentist did she her older than her passport which states 6yo the dentist says more likely 9yo

We do have videos of her being ridden along the road ect in previous home

He is IDX Connie x Welsh and breeding is recorded in a white book.

  • Ricardo Sam x Ricardo z x cavalier Royale
  • Dumfries Scotland

Mickey has been with us a few weeks and is lovely to work with on the ground , good to tack up, groom , muck out around ect.

To ride Mickey is extremely lazy - I cannot emphasis this enough! We have been hoping to find his go buttons but we haven’t yet ! So have decided to advertise him anyway. 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.

He has been a hunt horse for the last 5 season down south.

To hack Mickey is un phased by most things but if you don’t ride forward he will turn for home. But he just needs ridden forward and he is fine !

Please don’t ask to come see Mickey if you want a forward going horse we haven’t found those buttons yet! If he doesn’t go he will go to be showjumped professionally in the next week or two.
