This horse is a brilliant hunter with the kindest nature. Bally has hunted for 4 seasons and been XC schooling several times with numerous members of staff. A forward going and thinking horse who is reliable and safe.

Bally was recommended to us and has proven to be the unusual combination of being both safe and sensible enough for a first-time owner/or beginner rider, whilst also having enough about him for the more skilled rider to enjoy. 

Handsome with quality and substance, Bally has three correct and active paces suitable to be successful in pure dressage, yet also jumps anything and everything, and has proven himself to also be an able and bold hunter who becomes better and better at this job every time he goes out. 

Not least is his lovely sensitive nature which results in him being a pleasure to handle and ride100% sound, hack-out, jump all types of fences, load, clip, handle, etc.   A very easy, unusual horse who can carry a beginner rider of any weight calmly and safely yet also give highly experienced riders a thrill when he is asked to provide more.  These photos do not begin to do him justice!

This smart, well-moving and well-trained gelding joined us from a respected colleague of ours, Alec Miles, having also been recommended to us by Robert Pickles FBHS.

By the renowned local stallion Ludo and with the official name of “Shake That Booty” he is pretty enough adorn a chocolate box but also delivers the goods, having been trained to Medium level in dressage and successfully competed up to and including BE Novice level in his earlier years.

He has had a busy life before we bought him, including successfully competing in one day events, Pony Club and show jumping competitions. He qualified for the 1m Show Jumping championships in Mullingar & his old owner (a 13yo) said he loves to jump and would jump all day long.  He is great to hack alone or in company, a sensitive horse who loves people and wants to please his rider. Good to shoe, box, clip and hack.

The wonderful Fraser has progressed many riders since during the years he has been with us.  Skilled on the flat and over fences, he is fundamentally a sensitive horse which has proven a huge hit for most that have had the pleasure of riding him. 

Fraser has also been out and seen much of life, such as competing in all three disciplines, cross-country schooling, hunting and sponsored rides.  His owner of many years, Helena has learnt much with this lovely horse and it is only due to her being off to Uni that this special boy finds himself on the market – ideally to remain at Lavant House Stables, but this is not essential.  The most important thing is to find a suitable new owner who can provide an excellent home to this very special horse.

Good to box, clip, shoe, catch, handle, etc. fully vacinated, sound and fit, Fraser is suitable as a first or second horse to a caring home.

Jigsaw is of the useful size that can carry an adult or a child.  With his kind and gentle nature he has successfully introduced many people to the art of horse riding and is always a popular too as a first horse for our livery clients.

He has now successfully introduced three young ladies into horse ownership as their “first horse” and in such a confident fashion that all three have moved on to much higher and better things within the equestrian field.  Jigsaw has proven time and time again he is worth his weight in gold and really is that rarity – the true confidence building equine.

A reliable and kind pony who will melt your heart with his loving look, he has looked after Alex de Brunner for many years but as she has now outgrown him he is available for half or full share. Domonic loves to jump and canter but he will make sure you are safe and sound on top!

This confident, sensible and quality gelding was purchased with four others during our trip to Southern Ireland, March 2013. 

Perfectly put together, Jasper is a classic Working Hunter Pony type who really ought to be in the show ring rather than a riding school, but my goodness does he know his job already.  Despite his young age he is a well used pony having been hunted in Ireland for two years by a (now) ten year old girl and she has done a super job producing him.

He is a fabulous type of pony that are usually very hard to find and he is very much the sort that would excel at whatever one decided to do with him.

Munchkin has been with us for many years now having arrived originally because he quite simply needed to be kept busy doing something and no just standing around in a field as a pet until his young owners had time to ride him during the school holidays!

Arriving with a list of health issues to make your hair curl and quite definitely needing professional management, Munchkin just keeps on going and is quite definitely the perfect pony to first teach your child to ride on – he goes when asked and stops when asked and is simply lovely to handle from the ground. 

Munchkin is a very special pony and particularly more so now for being in our riding school where lots of children get the opportunity to realise just how special he is!

Good looking bay Irish Sports Pony with 101 show jumping points on his card.
This is the sort of pony that everyone who works in the equine industry wants for their child. An out and out winner, he easily achieves 1m course double clears. With three good paces, excellent conformation and masses of presence Pablo is equally suitable for eventing, dressage or any type of Pony Club activity you care to name. Pablo is a straightforward, sound and easy to do in all respects: to ride, handle, clip, box, shoe, hack and in traffic. For sale through no fault of his own, we all love him to bits!

As a competitive pony, Pablo is active and suitable only as a second pony.

Pebbles is a “picture-perfect” pony with his striking colour, big round tummy and very dainty head.

The confident Pebbles really does know it all – he knows how to teach our smaller children to canter and (very small) jumps and has the perfect manners to match. Pebbles is the ideal starter pony and we know we are very lucky to have him with us.  He is safe on or off the lead rein and whilst he loves children, he is not so keen on adults.

Squeak is an ideal first pony and has proven these credentials by successfully introducing several young owners over the years into the skills of horse-ownership.  A pretty pony, he arrived with our other stars Eddie and Ozzie, and has participated in many Pony Club activities both on and off the lead rein.  Children can handle him very easily and being a bit of a character further endears him to his child riders!

Todd came to us because he was so naughty at his previous home!  Whilst Todd quickly settled into being a brilliant riding school pony, he also successfully attended many off site Pony Club activities and Hunter Trials with the proprietor’s daughter when she was younger. 

Todd does it all, he’s good on the flat, over fences and hacks out calmly.  Children can handle him easily and safely and he really knows his job inside-out.  The perfect first pony for any small child – definitely worth his weight in gold.

Tyler has been a riding school pony all his life and is fantastic at the job – he is also a bit of a character which we all love .  A handsome, no-nonsense pony with a lot of experience but who is thankfully no longer the escape artist he used to be in the past, Tyler pretty much suits anybody as a first pony.
