1. ‘Genuine, tolerant and tough’

screen-shot-2016-12-05-at-18-05-29

Height: 11.2hh

Age: six

Gender: mare

Selling points: “‘Missy’ is a cracking first pony and confidence builder. She can be totally trusted with children, and is careful, non-biting, non-bucking and non-bolting. She can be led from a big horse or from the ground. She is sensible and unflappable out hunting, carefully negotiating huge ditches and obstacles. She has attended a few Pony Club (PC) events, been to the beach and swum in the sea. She is good on her own or with others, has no vices and only wants to please and to be loved. I have also broken her to harness and she trots out beautifully and takes the weight well and is straight. Again she has never put a foot wrong here. I am keen to find her a home where she will be able to do her job, look after children and build their confidence. She has seen poles and small jumps and sees no issues with anything.”

2. ‘Proper hunting pony’

Height: 14.1hh

Age: 10

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “‘Casper’ (on the right of this picture) is available to the best home as he is sadly outgrown. He is an exceptional hunter who crosses big country hedges, gates and ditches with no problem. He also does all Pony Club activities and can showjump really well. He whips in, goes on point, parades hounds — literally anything. He needs to find a new best friend and continue his job. Always safe and willing to look after his rider. Clipped and ready to go. Easy to do.”

Age: six

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “‘Ben’ is a Welsh section D who is fit and out hunting now. He has done everything including British Dressage (BD), showjumping, cross-country, working hunter, hunter trials and camp. He has an extremely scopey jump and is 100% to hack alone or in company. He is good to do.”

4. ‘Kid’s hunting machine

screen-shot-2016-12-05-at-18-27-06

Height: 14hh

Age: six

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “This pony has an old head on young shoulders. He has carried both adults and kids in the hunting field and is snaffle mouthed. He is careful over timber and bold to a hedge. He would suit a competitive child for hunting adventures. He has a polite, quiet nature and is easy to have around. He isn’t a complete novice ride as he is a talented pony, but he has a nice, genuine nature. Stands like a rock to clip and has competed in riding club (RC) and PC activities. He is good to do any job with.”

5. ‘Fabulous’

screen-shot-2016-12-05-at-18-31-15

Height: 14.2hh

Age: 13

Gender: mare

Selling points: “This pony has done all PC activities including camp several times. She hunts regularly and loves jumping in the field. She will jump anything, has a huge amount of stamina and will go all day. She is kind and gentle in the yard and field but is not a novice ride. Good to catch, shoe and clip. ‘Lexi’ does not like being on her own in a yard or field and she travels well in a lorry with other horses but not in a trailer.”
