Ophelia is off to Uni and her lovely Connemara “Dill” is now for sale.

Bought in Ireland as a five year old in 2015, this fab little horse has taken her from Juniors to eventing confidently 100, via her B Test and every rally and team in between.

15.1, snaffle mouthed, sane and safe, but with a great little “engine” when required (hunts), well known by all OBH instructors.

Ready to take his next rider up through the levels – Badminton Grass Roots prospect, no doubt (currently lying 5th Cotswold Cup 100 League).

Please contact Virginia (mum) for details.


Mr Marshall (IRE) 148 cm 12 y o gelding Is very sadly for sale as his Jockeys are no longer able to ride in Pony Races.

He is one of the top Racing Ponies in the UK, having won and been 2nd, beaten a neck, in the Charles Owen Pony Racing Racecourse Series Final. He has won numerous races and competed at all levels, but is a brilliant Racecourse Series Pony.

Very genuine with a lovely temperament. Good to shoe, clip, box, in traffic and happy to hack alone. Fit and ready to run in the Racecourse Series when it starts in July 2021.

Please ring 07881 821500

Please ring 07881 821500







Tentatively looking for a sharer for our Skye. Skye is an 11.2 welsh section A mare. She has a great jump and excellent self carriage. Very versatile and can put her hoof to most things – hacking, showing, jumping, hunting. She’s a forward going ride but responsive and quick on her aids. 
My daughter is very comfortable on her mini shetland but not quite 100% off the lead on Skye so I am looking for someone to come hacking with my daughter and ride Skye, to give Skye cuddles and attention.
The opportunity to come to shows, join Pony Club (Old Berkshire Hunt Pony Club)  or come hunting (Staff College Drag Hunt) for the right person. 
We are looking for a confident little rider who would love the chance to share our little lady. A financial contribution will be required but we are keen on someone who is happy to help with chores on the yard. A bit of sweeping, haynet filling etc. If a younger child wants to ride but has a helpful  Mum / Dad/ big sister or brother that would be great. A confident child 7/8 plus or a small lightweight teenager.
We have a few horses so if there is a Mum/ Dad who would like to also ride I have a steed for that too.
The ponies are kept at home in Steventon where we have access to great hacking and planning permission is in for a menage so hopefully by mid- summer we shall have that too.
We already have a great sharer for Samson the mini shetland – a little girl called Frankie and her Mum (Lizzie Webb) rides out with me. So she can tell you that we are like/ the set up etc. 
We are an easy going family but new to the area.

Looking for a companion to a 11yr old 11h Welsh section A Gelding.  Ideally looking for a very sensible pony for a short and light mother to ride with her small children – max 14h and a gelding.  It wouldn’t need to be able to do much apart from hacking on the ridgeway.  Or alternatively a retired pony who would be happy keeping a younger pony company in the field.

Buddy is a stunning 14.1 (145cm) 13 year old grey Connemara. He is a proper competition pony, and has taken my daughter from 60cm to 100cm. Winning many many rosettes and trophy’s. He is very careful with his feet and doesn’t bat an eye at fillers.  He also loves his cross country, not phased by water or ditches.

Buddy is forward going out hacking and is not a novice ride. Never bucks or rears. He needs a  confident and competitive jockey where he can teach them the ropes.  

Buddy is the sweetest pony to have around and do, and doesn’t have a bad bone in his body. He is 100% for the farrier, catch, clip and to load etc. He does need to be sedated for the dentist. Never had a lame day or been sick or sorry. Up to date on teeth and vaccinations. 

Only for sale as sadly outgrown.

10* homes only as a heartbreaking sale of a very much loved pony.

Wanted on full loan to move to private family yard in South Oxfordshire to be totally loved and adored.

Approx 12hh first ridden for a very capable 6 year old who has lost a bit of confidence due to previous pony being unsuitable. Will be loved and pampered and join in all pc activities . Needs to be totally safe, no bucking or rearing. Will be hacked out with others and we would like to do lots of xc and sj events. 
Please contact Cheryl on 07815203327 if you can help make a little girl very happy. Thank you


Desperately looking for first pony for 6 year old. Current pony who was a great LR is proving too flighty and sharp off the LR. Ideally something a little older and wiser (been there / done that). Not too forward but goes off the leg and easy to stop. My daughter really enjoys her jumping which at this stage is still relatively small, she also loves her mounted games. Loving, knowledgable home awaits. We are based near Berrick Salome.  Either for sale, loan or lease. If you can help please reach out – 07592 776264
