Description

schoolmaster pony wanted for very tall 8yr old, outgrowing her very slight pony.

Looking for the ultimate confidence giver to do PC, XC, SJ and hacking in open spaces.
Nothing sharp or too forward but will go off the leg, honest into jumps and has good brakes. We’ll be jumping 60-80cm mostly. A steady eddie around a course that looks after its rider.

Older than 5 and been around enough to have gone to shows, PC and group events without losing its mind. Good to load, with farrier and clip.

No cobs or hogged manes (not my choice, I love a cob! sorry)

Something kind and mannerly on the ground that can be led out, feet picked, tacked up and generally adored by a child that wants to live in the stable. An easy going character. Doesn’t need riding daily, but happy with 3 or 4 times a week.

Wiltshire/Somerset - happy to travel up to 2 hours . Would want to see videos (preferably with a child riding)

Private yard, 3 other horses owned, good hacking and members of local riding/pc club and events. Thank you for reading this far!

Description

Looking for the seemingly impossible!

13yr old daughter is making the transition from ponies to horses, but is tall, so either needs a chunky 14.2hh or a 15.2hh max of lighter build.

Most importantly this pony/horse needs to be 100% solid in all traffic. We don’t live on the M25 but we do have to negotiate a road which is getting ever busier, and I don’t need the grey hairs in worrying that she’ll be disappearing over the nearest hedge.

Must also load and travel happily in a trailer alongside another horse, and not come out the front ramp at 100mph.

This pony needs to be a confidence giving type, so not too forward but not a complete kick along. Needs to respond to the leg and be happy to do the occasional schooling session.

Wanted for PC activities, SJ/XC clinics/pleasure rides/hacking. MUST be happy to hack alone as Mum will be doing this during the week, but also be v sensible in company, especially in open spaces.

We’ve been favouring older horses who’ve been there and done it, but now wanting to take things a little easier.

Daughter is a very sympathetic, competent rider but isn’t madly keen on competitions, so this pony doesn’t need to be a superstar. What it DOES need to be, is very calm, uncomplicated and genuine. Mum is very experienced and will be enjoying the hacks during term time.

Would be kept at home in lovely stables alongside 2 others. Won’t want for anything, they get more attention than the rest of the family!

Decent budget for the right horse, although as I say, we aren’t looking for a competition horse.

Based in Dorset so South West area ideally, but will travel South East / South Central for an amazing horse.

Please nothing younger than 7yrs and no projects. We need something that’s got lots of experience under its belt and is looking to take a step down.

Here’s hoping!

Wanted retired hunter/eventer on permanent loan, poss purchase for light hacking only.
He must be 16HH+ and in his 20’s, a gelding, ISH/WBx/TBx, No full TBs thank you.
He must be quiet & sensible to hack in open spaces, good in traffic, not spooky and have good field and stable manners.
I have kept horses at home for over 38 years and look after them myself. I am a capable rider but have never been very confident; hence my new best friend must be safe and kind.

Thank you Wendy (Soberton, Hampshire)

Description

After the heartbreaking loss of my own forester after 22 years together, I am looking to find my new best friend.

The wish list - 14.2 registered gelding sensible type with a kind temperament and no nasty vices. Wanted primarily for hacking and fun rides, but would love to have the opportunity to take part in local riding club activities, TREC, low level endurance, arena eventing etc. But this isn't a must have right now.

Will need to be able to hack alone and in company and not be a stressy sort. Must be good to catch and be sensible in traffic, travelling etc. Forward going is fine. Cheeky is fine. I just need something that will be an all round sensible type, no box walking, stressing if it's in the stable alone etc. No nasty vices please.

I know I'm asking for a lot, so fully understand that compromises will need to be made, so obviously, I'm willing to consider options that don't necessarily fit the wish list.

Looking to buy or loan, LWVTB, whichever option finds me the pony I'm seeking.

In return I can offer a long term, loving home. Excellent facilities where the pony will be my number one priority. Happy to keep in touch with owners (I'm still in touch with the people I bought my last pony from in 1999).

I would love to hear from you if you have something that might be suitable.

Description

Searching for my next best friend!
Loving home for life offered for the right horse, I already have a stable waiting!

I am on the search for a 15-16hh cob or cobx/ weight carrier, but am open to other options.
Don’t mind a gelding or non- mareish mare, approx 8-14 years old.

For all riding club activities, hacking alone and in company and generally lots of love and affection. Good to box, shoe and with polite stable manners. No buckers, rearers, spinners or bolters and must be safe with traffic. I am not a novice but just want something to enjoy stress free.

Reasonable budget for the right horse but would also consider LWVTB or full loan to ensure the right match.

Please do get in contact via text or email if you have anything suitable in mind, thank you!

I have just had to have my lovely cob Frank put down. Home is a field with 4 other ponies, 10 mins walk from my home with stable. Just hacking a couple times a week, directly onto the Forest. A pony into the teens preferred, manners more important. Frank was a small Irish cob, around 13/3.

Description

I am looking for a pony for my 10 year old daughter, she would like a pony that likes to jump, she is a good rider but nervous so I cannot take anything that will get silly or wound up. She is very keen to jump and her current pony does not enjoy jumping. If the pony would also do some mounted games that would be great but not essential. Our home is the best of homes for a pony we have no roadwork with direct forest access and we attend a lot of pony club and sponsored rides etc. I would like a loan or loan with view to buy but sensible prices only please. My daughter needs to get to know a pony which makes it impossible to buy straight out. References available.

They are brave and we’ll balanced but lack mileage. Ponies must be safe in open spaces and with traffic and easy to do, jump, hack, load etc. Ideally one pony 12.2-13hh and one about 14hh.

Description

We are looking for a forward safe horse, 14.3 - 16h, for my 14 year old daughter to do all PC activities (Portman), hacking and ODEs, and for me to hack alone and in company.

Long term loan, or LWVTB, or buy (pref max price 6,500).

Most important is a horse that has a good temperament, no vices, is a pleasure to do in all ways, and is forward going and enjoys jumping. It could be an experienced horse or equally we would be happy with a younger horse who has been well started and is willing to learn.

Our chunky 14hh NF, whom we have had for 4.5 years and is now outgrown, has a lovely loan home waiting, and my daughter is really keen for a horse she can do more ODEs with at 80cm +. She is a confident quiet rider, and enjoys a forward ride, but would not cope with a very strong horse, so good breaks are essential! I am the happy hacker, hacking locally alone or in company, and I often trailer to meet a friend for other beautiful rides in the area.

We can offer a loving experienced home, sharing a field and yard next door to our house with one quiet very sweet-natured mare. Can be out 24/7 in summer (or limited grazing time if necessary) and in at night in the winter. There is beautiful offroad hacking here. My daughter is very slim 5'5" and I am somewhat less slim, 5'4", approx. 9.5 stone.

Ideally we do not want to be driving hours and hours to look at horses; so we are limiting our radius to approx. 1 hour drive!
