14.2hh Pony Club Schoolmaster 
A charming Dun Connemara gelding, 9 yrs old, 14.2 hh for sale. He is called Thorncroft Tinker.
He has been ridden by a pony club family from my yard for the last 4 years. They have outgrown him so he is now for sale, for the first time in his life. He has done Senior camp for the last two years. He has very nice paces, a gentle nature, and happily jumps anything from 60-1.05 in a kind, straight rhythm. He is good XC, jumping ditches and water. He has good conformation and is very well bred. He could excel in Working Hunter classes. He does a good and accurate dressage test, and is easy for a child to achieve a nice outline.
He is very good to hack, in traffic, box, load, clip etc. He is happy leading another pony or being led.
Tinker loves beach rides, fun rides, hunting and all pony club activities. 
 He would also be perfect for a small adult or a mother/child share. 
£4950 inc all rugs, and bridle. Will sell his new saddle separately 


13.3hh bay pony for Loan  who has been out grown by his present rider is looking to find a new best friend. He has been an active Pony club and Riding club member. He can do a great Prelim or Novice Dressage test and loves show jumping. He has done cross country but not for several years. He is more a push than a pull ride. If you push the correct buttons he will do anything for you. We are looking for his next best friend to love him and look after him from our home in Boars Hill. We would consider him moving once a partnership has been formed. Happy for him to attend lessons/ Pony club etc







Our super loan pony is going back to his owner in May and we are looking for a new pony for many years of pony club fun with our two horse-mad daughters (9 and 7) who are currently OBHPC members.  We also currently have a 12’2 ridden by our youngest who will also eventually grow into the new pony, so it will stay with us for many years.

We are looking for the following;
Gelding or mare
Been there and done it- a confidence giver
Hunting, hacking and all pony club activities
Must be super safe
No vices
Experienced, loving and active pony club and hunting home awaits on private yard at home with other horses and ponies.

I’m putting feelers out there first to see if there is anyone interested 

Sami my 14.2hh registered Welsh D is my pride and joy and I’m exploring options for sharing him with a loving, competent rider. He is now 16 years old and I’ve owned him for 4 years. He is a gentleman in all ways when handling and riding. He has competed locally within the PC and RC, he excels in dressage and loves to jump. He competes comfortably at 80cm SJ & XC and would excel higher with the right rider and is also a bombproof hack alone or in company.

I’m happy for someone to just hack him and have the odd lesson or alternatively I’m more than happy for him to continue competing within the PC/RC and locally dependant on rider’s experience. He adapts and looks after his riders whether you are a novice or experienced. He loads himself and travels extremely well alone or with another horse in a trailer or lorry. He’s ideal for someone getting back into horses not wanting a full commitment or for a child progressing off small ponies within the pony club.

Options for sharing him could either be a 50/50 split if you can offer 3-4 days a week looking after and exercising him as if he was your own alongside myself or alternatively agree on 2 days with an agreed set contribution towards his costs with an agreement in place.

His routine and care will be agreed upon with myself and he will be kept on a DIY Livery yard which has a floodlit arena and access to private hacking – no need to touch any roads but can hack into local village if required.

Bonus if you have your own transport but can be flexible in regards to taking to shows/training with the right person.

Looking for pony on long term loan 12.2-13.3 for 8 year old girl who can walk, trot, and canter well and pop small jumps. Would like to find a “been there done that” pony that can help her to progress – perhaps an outgrown pony or an older pony who needs a quieter life, to do a bit of everything with. Mare or gelding and ideally would live out 24/7. Good to hack and not worried around farm machinery. Would like pony to be responsive to leg but not strong and more push than pull – mostly need a true confidence giver gold dust type to restore daughters lost confidence! She loves to jump but on a pony that doesn’t leap 8ft into air unnecessarily! 😉 Would like to attend local competitions and events therefore pony must be good to load and well behaved at shows. Loving home awaits with previous experience of pony shares and ownership, regular lessons and a really supportive yard where help is always on hand.

13.2hh Bay New Forest Mare 15 years old. Sparky is a second pony who would suit either a small adult or a child with some experience wanting to do pony club activities. She has been owned by myself for 11 years and in that time has mainly been used for hacking, however, she has been on loan previously to a pony club home. Sparky is a lovely pony to handle, never bites or kicks. She is good to catch, load, farrier, dentist and with traffic. Sparky is now 15 years old and so I do not want her to jump any higher than 80. She must be stabled at night throughout the winter and the summer. References / loan agreement will be required. Sparky is a very special pony, all homes will be vetted and regular visits to see how she is getting on.

Bee is a lovely sweet natured mare who is brilliant in every way. She has hunted, showjumped, evented etc.

bee is a brilliant hunter, she is speedy but will come back to you and stand when asked to, she also has a brilliant jump and will jump anything.
