Connemara Cross – competition pony for sale
We bought Haribo (named so because he’s such a sweetie) freshly imported from Ireland at the end of 2011, he has subsequently been brought on slowly and carefully under the professional guidance of Cheryl Bezants (who is happy to talk to interested parties).
Haribo loves show-jumping, so my daughter (then 11 years old) affiliated in March 2013, between June and the end of the year they had won £111 actual, jumping Novice and Discovery and qualified for second round (including three 1st places). He has also jumped on School and Pony Club teams, placing 1st in 90cm class last time out at Crofton Manor.
My daughter has had a brilliant time, learning to bring him on and being able to turn up to shows, knowing, if she rode well she could win. Haribo also shows great potential for dressage and learns very quickly, his schooling includes a lot of flatwork. He has had some cross country schooling and ridden in a Hunter trial and did well. Has attended Pony Club camps.
Haribo is easy to do, catch, load, vet, clip and shoe. Hacks out alone or in company. He has great temperament at shows. Bright, intelligent, loves to work, he gets on well with others. He is forward going but always ridden in a snaffle. He currently lives out all year on grass and hay, he is used to a field companion.
My daughter has frustratingly had a series of injuries over the last 11 months and has been unable to compete much at all. However schooling has continued and Haribo is ready to go.
Sadly we are having to sell this ‘pony of a lifetime’ as my daughter has grown tall very quickly and is moving up to horses. £10,000. Call Paul on 07712 129467. Nr Alton, Hampshire
13.1 New Forest gelding for sale
Jack is 13.1hh New Forest gelding. We have had him for 2 years and he has been a quiet schoolmaster who is at his best on gentle hacks, at rallies, he does a lovely round of jumps and has been brilliantly quiet and taught us all the basics. He is at his absolute best pottering around on washing line reins. Can be strong in more exciting situations like hunting. We have loved having him in our family. He is good to handle, clip, load and fuss about and is in excellent health. Looking for a good home for a good old boy. £1,000 ONO. Contact Gussie on 01962 732120 or 07792 924914
WANTED-14hh+ horse for loan
I’m looking for horse to ride as a loan through the winter, while my horse recovers from injury. To be kept at my house near Medstead alongside my sister’s 13.2 mare. I am 15, a member of the HH pony club & a confident rider. Please contact email@example.com
Rummie for loan
Rummie has excellent stable manners, is great for the farrier, good to load, catch and groom. My daughter has taken him to various rallies including mini camp this year however he does get initially stressy at a new venue although he does settle.
At home Rummie is settled and I often lead him down to the school bus and then he is hacked home. I am really looking for a loan home that would like to use him for riding at home, hacking out etc or he would be suitable for a more confident rider to take out and about. Teeth, worming, foot trimming and vaccinations all up to date.
Rummie is a much loved pony and is so easy to handle (will be stabled or left on his own in the field) and as such would also make a great companion.

For Sale: Zelenia
6yo, 15.1hh eye-catching mare. She is a very talented, attractive TB mare with very consistent, regular, active paces.
She has been produced slowly and carefully and during the winter of 2013/14 and excelled at dressage, consistently scoring 65+ at Prelim and Novice level, never outside the ribbons. She has qualified for the Sunshine Tour championships and SSAD National Dressage champs 2014. At SJ she has competed both unaffiliated and on a ticket and has proved her talent and passion for jumping with many double clears up to 1m.
She started her eventing career at Rackham BE90 and then followed this by a slow and careful round at Iping BE80 with a 29 double clear. She then competed at Tweseldown Unaff BE80 and was 4th with a 34 double clear. (see BE record under Zelenia).
She is a sweet natured horse who strives to please. She has proved very easy to train, with secure lateral work and changes coming. She is snaffle mouthed in all disciplines, never spooky and is easy to do – 100% shoe, box, clip, traffic etc. She is often led in from the field by my disabled younger brother! She hacks out alone or in company and can be ridden by anyone!
This is a very sad sale as I have just started a full time job and cannot give ‘Zelly’ the time she deserves. She is fit and ready to compete.

Fun, forward-going, all-round fabulous 13hh mare “Millersford Bramble IV” aka Bramble
Bramble is 13hh New Forest; she is kind, willing and has the sweetest nature. She may be 18 but she behaves like a teenager and in the 2.5 years we have owned her, has never been sick nor sorry. She is a wonderful character with plenty of life left in her and she will do everything. My daughter was 9 when we got her and together they have endlessly pony-clubbed with the HHPC: hunter-trialled, where she is always placed and regularly wins at 70-80cm, hunted, ODE’d, show-jumped and given my daughter bags of confidence. The only reason for selling her, regretfully, is that my daughter is now too big for her.
Bramble is great to clip, catch, cuddle and will stand all day on her own at a trailer. She loves hunter trialling and is an exciting ride for a plucky jockey whilst the gentlest mare on the ground. She can live alone or in company, stabled or out. She is currently sharing with a gelding. She is fully shod, vaccinated, wormed, had her teeth done etc and comes with full wardrobe & tack
We are looking for a caring home for Bramble where she will be enjoyed doing the sort of things we have done with her and keeping busy.
If you would like to see her, please call Fiona Dix: 01730 821 334 or email email@example.com £1850

Excellent dressage prospect.
3 stunning paces won her first prelim first time out, has definitely got the WOW factor. Fantastic temperament, good to shoe, box, clip, traffic etc. not a nasty bone in her body. Since being broken Sept 2013, she has been bought on by a 16 year old doing all RC/PC activities including camp.

She jumps too, schooling over 110cms with ease at home, competed at PC Area Novice SJ 85cm and 95cm.
We have been told that she has the potential to go all the way in dressage which is why we are looking for a 5* dressage home who can continue her training and bring out her potential. She really is a lovely mare and great to have on the yard. Only for sale as her rider wants to concentrate on her eventing career. Price: £14,000ono

JERRY 13.2 ALL ROUNDER BRIGHT BAY COB GELDING
Looking for a new best friend – Jerry has been part of our family for the last 4 years and has just been the best pony ever. He is only for sale as my son who competes in Endurance has moved onto a pure bred Arab.
We bought Jerry (now 14) when my son was 7 as a safe and confidence giving all-rounder, just after my son joined our local pony club branch. Initially my son and Jerry took part in a variety of activities within pony club including mounted games, showing jumping, one day mini eventing, tetrathlon and endurance as well as attending junior camp and regular rallies. Jerry is the sort that can adapt to his rider i.e. will be safe as 1st ridden but can step up a gear for a more experienced rider.
My son has very much taken to Endurance, joining Endurance GB a couple of years ago and since, he and Jerry have concentrated on endurance, competing in the England Home International team in 2013 as well as winning the Best Junior Endurance Rider trophy at the Endurance Inter Regional competition in 2013 and coming 4th in the National Junior Rider championships also in 2013.
As much as Jerry is quite happy to take part in a mix of disciplines I would say general hacking, endurance and hunting are his favourites. Jerry has been very easy in all disciplines he has undertaken, but I would say he is only suitable for show jumping to heights of c. 2’3-2’6. Jerry’s show jumping would need to be as part of a mixed range of events. Prior to my son concentrating on endurance he did a lot of show jumping for a period of time and we did find Jerry wasn’t keen on jumping 3-4 times a week. However as soon as we began to mix the show jumping back in with other disciplines, there were no issues. So I would say Jerry isn’t suitable for someone that wants to predominantly do show jumping.
Jerry is a fantastic good doer and literally does live off fresh air, he currently lives out 24/7 in the summer months coming in at night from Nov-Mar time. He is fantastic to travel, shoe, clip, brush, with the vet and gets on well with all other horses having lived out with both mares and geldings in the time we’ve owned him and is currently babysitting our 17 month old colt.
It is a really hard decision to part company with Jerry and all homes will be thoroughly vetted, I am in no hurry to sell him and I won’t let him go to a home I don’t feel it suitable, for his benefit or yours. I am advertising him for £1850 ono, home is more important than price. His tack and extensive wardrobe are all available by separate negotiation. Jerry is fully up to date with teeth, jabs and worming and is freezemarked and microchipped. Jerry is open to Vet.
For more information and photos please call on 07801 005506, this is a hard enough decision, so please only enquire if you are genuinely interested, thank you. Jerry is based in the Lingfield area.
RIO – Lovely, sweet 14.2 Irish skewbald mare, rising 5, good potential – ready to fly!
I have owned Rio for a couple of years ready to break in and bring on but sadly lost my husband and my circumstances changed. Therefore Rio has been sent for schooling in Oxfordshire and has taken to all disciplines like a duck to water. She is obviously green but is very willing to learn and she is incredibly calm and sensible and not at all “mare-ish”. She hacks out – good in traffic, good to box, clip and shoe. She has had individual and group lessons so is used to other horses being around her. She did a careful clear round showing great potential at jumping and also came 2nd first time out at a dressage competition at a local show. Being very pretty she would also do well in showing. She is passported and shod. I cannot keep her and I am looking for an experienced home as she is willing but understandably would need kind handling. I am sure she would make a great all rounder for a teenager and I am only asking for a nominal sum of £1,250 as the home is the most important thing and not the money. Whoever buys her will fall in love with her and be rewarded. This is genuine. Thanks. Please call Christine Martin on 07796 250563.
