WANTED (16/10/18)

Desperately seeking a pony to mend a broken heart…. after only 3 months of having the perfect loan pony for my daughter Lottie, we are having to give him back due to a change in the owner’s circumstances.

Lottie is 6 and has been off the lead rein for the whole summer with Bubbles, having an absolute whale of a time at PC camp, local shows, fun rides and rallies and I now need to find a pony that can carry on the fantastic job that Bubbles has started.

We are looking for an approx. 12hh, safe off the lead, confidence giver. We don’t need a world beater, just a pony that can continue to teach Lottie off the lead and have fun together.

We can offer a 10* experienced home with stabling and suitable grazing right next to our house on our family farm, with our Shetland for company. We’re happy to be vetted and give references because I know finding the right home is as important as finding the right pony!

Loan preferred but sale considered. (Beaufort PC)

Lovely 15.2, 13 year old, Class 1 Connemara gelding for sale. Ideal teenager’s first horse or ladies ride.
We have had Bunny for 4 years, since my daughter was 13. He has been the perfect horse for us, able to compete successfully with very little effort on our part.

He loves cross country and is bold, happy to jump everything, no problem with water, ditches, steps, skinnies etc.
Bunny is a very good show jumper, fast against the clock without pulling, and can turn on a sixpence, he has been very competitive at a range of heights. He works nicely in an outline with 3 good paces.
Bunny has attended pony club and competed successfully in pony club and school teams. He is very happy at competitions remaining calm and waiting quietly in the trailer, a real pleasure to take out. He is easy to do in every way, clipping, catching, vet, shoeing, loading and travelling. He is happy to hack out on his own or in company, first or last. He does not need riding daily, we only hack out once a week in winter. He has a lovely temperament and no vices.
Very sad sale due to A level commitments, only to a good home. Videos available on request.

A SUPER 14.1hh PONY FOR SALE (24/08/18)

Royal Star III (Piglet) is a 14.1hh, 9 year old bay Thoroughbred X Sport Horse mare, bred from Littledale Bright Star and By Appointment at West Kington Stud, who has given my 13 year old daughter a lovely 18 months of riding. This is a really sad sale as my daughter has had a big growth spurt and is now too big for her. Piglet would make an excellent PC/RC second pony.

Piglet is fast and accurate in SJ so is normally placed e.g. individual 2nd in NSEA Dauntsey SJ, 1st WWEC unaffiliated SJ at 70cm – 80cm, although we successfully school her to 90-100cm at home and at training events.  Piglet has competed at Prelim and Novice in dressage and came overall 6th in the Bath Riding Club Winter dressage series. As dressage and show jumping are her strengths, she recently came 3rd in the Pony Club CT and 5th in the Bath Riding Club CT. We have taken her XC schooling several times as my daughter wants to event, but Piglet sometimes lacks confidence.

Piglet has also been in the ribbons when we took her showing last year, coming 1st in the Working Hunter 14.2h and Under at the Foxham Show and was Reserve Champion at the Dilton Marsh show. She is forward going but still snaffle mouthed.

5* home needed for this gem of a pony. Dressage sheets, more photos and videos available on request.

£6500 inc tack and rugs.

Please call Alison on: 07722070906
