Champ caught our eye earlier this year on a trip to Ireland, he was standing proud but quiet so of course we rushed over and asked to try him. Amelia rode him for 2 minutes then quickly hopped off  because there were lots of other people watching that were interested in him, when she got off she said to Lucy “this horse is just like Roo, I don’t care how how expensive he is but we’ve got to have him!”.
Thankfully Amelia was right and Champ is a real gem, he has just started in private lessons and higher group levels & everyone that has ridden him has fallen in love. He is forward going, safe and comfortable, horses like him are priceless!

Tin Tin is a compact, chunky little Irish horse who is a good all-rounder having three good basic paces, an honest brave jump, whether show jumps or cross-country, and can be hacked out alone as well as in company.  He is lovely to handle from the ground and just easy in all respects, whatever it is you would like to do.   He is good to box, shoe, catch, traffic, hack, vice free, has excellent health and is cheap to keep.
He has competed in training shows, Pony Club, hunted and been regularly cross-country schooling.  For sale through no fault of his own, this is an ideal mother/daughter share, is suitable for all Riding and Pony Club activities and will make someone, somewhere a really good friend.
Tin Tin would suit a novice or a nervous rider, and although he has already done a lot for his age, he is still young at 6 years of age, therefore we recommend that a novice or nervous owner has access to regular training and assistance to keep heading in the right direction.

Bueno came to us earlier this year from Ireland where he has been hunting over the winter. He is a flashy pony, with a willingness to please and sensitive attitude. Maddy has cross country & show jumped in in our field and has fallen in love. We wish him and his new loan owner Ellie Shaw the best of luck and I’m sure she will have lots of fun on him!

Dinky looks like the perfect mini version of a quality show hunter but is never going to go any faster than his small jockey would like.  He was a favourite of the proprietor’s daughter when she was younger and attended many off-site Pony Club activities.  Dinky has been with us for years and is very much part of our family.

Merlin came to us from a riding school and a Riding for Disabled centre which he also helped out with.  A sweet, nicely marked piebald, he has taught many children to ride, attended plenty of pony camps and only became available as his riding school went out of business.  Good to clip, box, catch, shoe, he is an ideal first pony for either child or small adult.

Within a short space of time Merlin (formerly known as Bob in Ireland for our Irish friends who are following his progress) has become an invaluable addition to our riding school and is extremely popular with child and adult rider alike.  A rare gem indeed and certainly guaranteed of a comfy home for life!

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!

What a wonderful mare! We’re sure Tinkabell will soon be a favourite in our riding school thanks to her incredibly comfortable canter and kind nature. She has also racked up 95 SJI points and used to compete in the Pony Club games. She also loves hunting and cross country – she really can do it all!
Now up for sale as we have too many ponies in her particular category in the riding school so someone is going to strike lucky with getting this pony – the only reason she is on the market is it is much more complex for us to keep mares than geldings, so grab a great first pony.
