Riding History:

I have had horses for 51 years and can provide a very experienced and loving home. I have managed ponies with laminitis and weight issues.

Dream Horse:

I am looking for a first pony for my 5 year old granddaughter to learn to ride and her 3 year old sister to have a sit on. The pony can be any breed or colour, temperament is the key, the pony can be older but I would prefer a pony under 20 if possible.

Riding Ambitions:

I would like to be able to lead the pony at the walk and trot for the 5 year old and eventually for her to learn to ride independently. I have a fenced Menage so this can be done safely. I would like the girls to be able to brush the pony and to be safe around the pony while learning all the rules and correct handling.

Bombproof, safe with children
Notes:

24/oct just sent a pony from horse deals advertised a minute ago. Jane having this one vetted.

Currently getting one vetted.
Oct 13 – Also sent a clients little paint shetland Jelly – an absolute ripper. $5000 inc all gear. Not advertised yet.

Quiet paddock pony wanted , super safe, lead rein shetland

Spoke to Jane. Really nice and experienced horse owner. Pony for 2 yr old and 5yr old, to walk and trot around on , on and off lead.
Happy to look at ponies 2 hrs radius of Doreen (your place included). Also happy to buy sight unseen with FaceTime viewing.
Flexible on size but no super wide shetlands. $3000-$4000 ideally but a little more for something perfect. She would like something with 5-6yrs left in it or very gentle, occasional riding. Nothing that needs cushings medication. Would go to 21-22yrs if young 21-22.
Not looking for a show pony or competition pony. Just a good quiet pull out the paddock pony.
Searching on and off for a year , COVID been an issue for her. Ready to buy now.

Dream Horse:

Sane sensible sound
Doesn’t need to be a school master but an all rounder and not ‘quirky’

Riding Ambitions:

To have fun – I’m not interested in serious competitions

Sane sensible chilled
Notes:

16/3 ring Kay beginning of July 2022. currently having lessons to improve her riding.

3/11 Kay has found a riding school with horses so she is going back to lessons to improve her riding and save more money. Then she can look for a “better” horse. Pause the search for 6 months please.

16/10 messaged kay to let her know nothing has coming up as yet but we are searching our hardest, also informed her the video she was sending me by email has not come through as yet.

After ringing sunny is unsuitable. Kay has decided that temperament is the only thing that matter, height, breed, age, sex are irrelevant.

Sent kay Sunny the QLD horse from horse deals to ask her her opinion. Sent ad and video.

Called kay sat 2nd october just to say hi and remind her to send some photos and they havent found anything suitable as yet.
Kay- lovely old lady. Looking for a best friend for low level ARC. Maybe a few poles, 60cm. Lessons in a group and trail riding, navigation rides. Got sold a mare that bolted with her in an arena and broke her collarbone. Has ridden since, probably a bit nervous. Slightly flexible on all her requirements for the right horse. Happy to buy sight unseen if all due diligence has been done. Must have been to ARC or similar and be proven out and about. Doesn’t need to be flash or high level anything, think she been put off the OTT’s, STB ok. Her favourite horse ever was a quarter horse gelding who responded to voice commands and was just her friend, he’s retired at her place with arthritis. Going to send me a photo, she doesn’t have any video.

Riding History:

We are looking for a family horse and best friend

I am in my mid 40s and rode for many years – as a child to late teens, I rode competively in the ring/dressage. I am getting back into riding and having lessons to get me ride fit. I am a confident rider.

My 8 year old daughter is a beginner and currently in lessons, she is being taught properly in a round yard, no reigns, then no saddle for her balance etc she can now rise and sit trot off the lunge comfortably, stop, start and turn. She will be proceeding to canter after the holidays.

Dream Horse:

See below – A mare that we could later breed would be a bonus, so good bloodlines. Although gelding also fine.

Riding Ambitions:

Looking for a patient “been there and done that” pony my daughter is quite tall and is growing like grass so that is why we are looking for pony around 15hh ( a touch smaller could be ok)

Clearly needs to be safe/sound and something that she may use for interschools when she begins high school – she has showed some interest in dressage.

Please note this will not be a competitive home per say, we are simply looking for a horse that has plenty of experience/education as I enjoy an educated ride, due to my show days and a pony can help my daughter continue to gain confidence and skill – maybe ex show/dressage that maybe ready for an easier life, with weekly rides in the arena/trail, tonnes of love & attention.

Notes:

oct 29- sending Sasha horses every day pretty much!
oct 13 – vet check delayed until next week as horse hit its head. Still keen. Hopefully next Tuesday
oct 5 – called buckskin show pony for her – proved unsuitable
oct 3 – sent her three horses for consideration.

Oct 8- Vet checking one next week. Tuesday onwards in QLD

Riding History:

Grown up and ridden all my life. Grandfather used to breed. Spent some time living in city where there was little activity but living on acreage again for last 3 years and currently own 2 horses for pleasure. One OTT and one Cob cross which was purchased for pleasure harness but proving to be unsuitable.

Dream Horse:

Feel like I’m searching for the impossible ! Looking for a horse for pleasure harness driving. If broken to saddle that would be a bonus but not a deal breaker. Something between 14.3 and 15h needed to fit my Jinker and Buggy. Not fussed on Breed as long as ready to drive and good ground manners and suitable to paddock with my OTT mare who is friendly but can be bossy/nippy at feed time. Have post an rail fencing so no windsuckers either. If we are talking dream horse I would describe a good looking Black gelding at requested height. But have been looking for quite some time so as long as ready to go, friendly and good manners I am flexible.

Riding Ambitions:

I only ride for pleasure so something suitable to drive every week and if broken to saddle then will be ridden on average once a week as well.

Harness
Notes:

9/2 LEAH BOUGHT WILSON from Utopia

29/10 – sent Leah a new standie at Patchwork Park – 15hh, black/brown gelding. Just starting retraining but have expressed interest and will keep an eye on it!

Riding History:

Looking for my husband Paul. He has done some trail riding and a bit of riding around the farm. He is soft and gentle with all animals and, while tall and fairly athletic, is not heavy.
We have a 4 acre property where the new horse will share paddocks with my gelding, Espy (who Nikki knows quite well :)).

Dream Horse:

Paul needs a friendly, no fuss, safe mount that will become his friend. Experienced, bom-proof, horse that enjoys a trail ride, cuddles and treats. Something that will be happy to bum around a paddock a lot of the time, and then be pulled out and go for a (low speed) adventure somewhere. Must be easy to catch, float, rug, do feet and teeth. Does not need to be super pretty or athletic or classically educated, just needs to be easy, level headed and happy to plod along.

Riding Ambitions:

Paul’s main goal is to be able to feel safe around his new furry friend. And to be able to take him to cool places and ride on the trails.

Notes:

29/10 – search on hold at the moment whilst they work out if the ones they have might suit.

Riding History:

I started riding at age 9, got my own horse at age 12. I was very competitive at Pony Club in everything (games to showing to grade 3 eventing). At 18, I got an OTT and evented level 2. then stopped riding. I returned to riding in my early 30s and had an OTT and a 16.3hh WB who I evented HRCV grade 3 on. I sold him 7 years ago. This year, I have started riding again under instruction on my friend’s WB doing mainly dressage. This has stopped in lockdown though as I live in Melbourne.

Dream Horse:

15.2-16hh – nice movement and a love of jumping. Must be good out on trails and rarely refuse jumps. Bonus points for brown or black horses and ones that are a bit smoochy! The dream is the horse has had some exposure or success at events but I am beginning to give up hope of that.

Riding Ambitions:

I am looking to do a bit of everything. I will be under instruction and will be able to get a trainer to help if the horse is a little green. My ambition is to do ARC, trail riding, low level eventing and straight dressage. I am not a nervous rider but I don’t want a horse that bucks or bolts. The odd pigroot is ok. Bad ground manners ok. Horse must load on the float well.

Notes:

9/10 lucys horse passed vet and is being transported to victoria on tuesday 12th. Nikki to call/message and discuss a potential partial refund
3/10 – lucy informed has found a horse in SA sight unseen she is getting vetted next week.
Chatted to Lucy. Really easy going lady. In lockdown and wants to test ride so probably leave till restrictions are lifted.
She tried Alfie with Keely and didn’t feel that it was quite educated enough or responsive enough to the aids. She has tried 3 so far and regretted not buying one on advice from the vet, which is now sold.
Her last own horse was 7 years ago. Flexible on everything but definitely no taller than 16.1 as she has short legs.
Point and shoot jumper. Comp exp to grade 3, maybe higher in dressage.
Must not wind suck
Will be kept at Agistment which is all organised.
Must load. Doesn’t have to be super quiet, just not nasty

Dream Horse:

Not too tall. About 15.2 Max. Does not have to be the best looking horse on the lot, but its a MUST, that he/she be able to go on a trail ride and low level ARC. A good confidence builder…

Riding Ambitions:

Eventually be confident enough to go to more comps, but firstly just enjoy the company of myself and my horse. Bring the joy back to riding again….

Notes:

Sent melissa nice paint. Nikki called. She bought it!!
10/10 sent melissa, haflinger from mildura. Melissa is firm on 14.2 hh and upwards.
Horse she was going to see was cancalled on her.
5/10 going to try the horse on thursday night
4/10 spoke to melissa going to ring about the qh x tb, 11 yr old.
Oct 3rd sent her qh x tb mare for her opinion
Oct 2nd Melissa expanded search to include
16 hands
Melissa law. Bought teddy from you, last year ,14 months ago. She adores him but just too spooky and sensitive. She’s broken her wrist off him in an indoor arena and had another major fall. Daughter has moved onto to OTT they love. They will keep teddy and lease him.
This horse is just for Melissa. Flexible on all points listed. She has definitely lost her confidence and was quite emotional to talk to. Horse will be used for trail riding and dressage. She is graded level 5 dressage and showing. Wants something with tested competition experience.
Warrandyte is metro but once out happy to travel around Vic and borders. Would be open to sight unseen but I’m not sure that this is right for her judging by how emotional she got.

Dream Horse:

A quiet sensible horse that is straight forward to saddle up and easy to get on that is established and brave willing jumper doesn’t have to be show quality or the prettiest horse understanding as I’m not the most balanced rider

Riding Ambitions:

To mainly ride at home and go to the odd eventing competition at grade 5 level but I don’t care if I don’t place just so long as I can get around the cross country course safely I have enough ribbons for a life time from my old horse budget will grow the longer it takes don’t care about waiting

20/10
Sent claire stunning bay gelding in QLD for her opinion.Spoke to claire. Best way to communicate with her is text message. Grade 4 is her ambition with the horse. Something that can go out a t grade 5 now. She says she is a confident rider on a quiet and easy horse. Not happy to go under 10years old, but happy to go older. Prefer to stay in VIC, but at the same time open to options. Not able to increase budget at this point in time.
Called 5.18pm 11/10 – left text message.
Called 8.05 this morning and left a voice message 11/10 saying I will call back at 5.10 this afternoon.

Hi Claire,

Thanks so much for enlisting the help to find your new mount! We are thrilled to be able to assist you.

We will start the hunt immediately and you will be started to send options that may suit! With your budget obviously being a touch lower, I think more the older style with plenty of experience and calm nature but slightly winding down may suit? Hopefully similar to what you were thinking.

Please shoot through or feel free to call anytime – we will text / email options as we discover them.

You will hear from either myself, Nikki or my co-worker an Match maker extraordinaire Heleni (H) will be in contact soon,

Many thanks,
Nikki Cook

I have been riding since I got my first horse at age 17 now 57
I have owned 7 horses in that time. Teak ,muffin,chief,jatz,dubai( who i inherented in 2006 from my sister who saddly passed away from a brain aneurysm.
Dubai passed away last year at the age of 30) and the horse i have now gilbert.
My last one Jatz I owened for 25 yrs he passed away at the age of 31 in 2015
I then bought my horse I have now Gilbert who I was told at the time was 14 but have since found out he was probably 25.that was in 2015
So now would make him 31
I have competed in low level dressage & hacking and go on the odd trail ride
I am still having lessons & competing on Gilbert, at our last comp in Feb of this year came first
I love Gilbert and he will be with me for life and even though he is well and healthy and doesn’t look or act like a 31 yr old ( I still am not sure of his true age have tried to trace his brand ect but have had no luck and even though I have been told he is in his 30s I still think he is in his late 20s. The brand on his shoulder is a 1 over a 1 so he was either born 1991 or 2001
I am thinking of retiring him and getting an other horse
Were i agist ( central Coast nsw) I have been there for 21 yrs ,the new horse would go in with my horse and his paddock mate ( a mare) in a nice paddock be fed every day and looked after for the rest of its life
Most have been t/breds
Muffin was a Arab x pony ( lovely dressage horse)
Teak was a Galloway unsure of what breed he was
Jatz was a t/breed again lovely dressage horse got up to elementary dressage with him
Chief was a t/b and 16.3hh
Gilbert is a t/b has really lovely movments is about 15.3hh and a bright bay

Dream Horse:

My dream horse would be a younger version of Gilbert
Would like 5-15 yr old ( willing to look at younger)about 15hh to 16hh gelding preferably but willing to look at mares ( all the horses I have had have been geldings)
Somthing that as done a bit of competition ( but not fussy if it hasn’t) as I will be getting lessons with it
Something Quiet( but with a littlebit of omff),with some nice movement, gets on with other horses, can go barefoot
Good on the ground ,no vices
Would like a grey but any colour would do
Would like a OTT somthing that has had a bit of basic training that I could continue its training
I do have dodge knees ( get sore and don’t have the strength in them any more)
So would need a horse that is not to strong when I ride

Riding Ambitions:

Would like to continue to compete at dressage ( Would like to get back up to alest novice level)
A bit of hacking
And trail rides
And do a bit of liberty

Gelding/ mare

Notes:

oct 13 – have sent Luisa 2 or 3 to consider. She wants very comprehensive videos if she cannot view in person (fair enough). Happy to buy sight unseen but video must be clear.
Oct 8 – spoke to Luisa. Had a terrible fall so looking for completely bombproof ideally.

Ideally just pleasure riding, may expand to ARC if she finds a proper no fuss unicorn.

Lovely lady but has had quite the spook so proper unicorns only, realistically a beginner who is scared to canter.

Preference would be gelding. Flat and jumping level grade 5. Doesnt matter if no jumping. Used for trailriding and potentially endurance. Needs to be ridden in company and on its own. Safe around kangaroos and motorbikes. Not spooky.
Been looking for 6 months. Ready to purchase now. Horse will be kept on agistment so no windsuckers.

3/2- sent Anthony and out of work stock horse and asked if he would consider sending it to SP to get back into work and going.
5/1 – rang anthony, hes very keen to get a horse. Only ASH considered. Have put a few wanted ads on ASH pages.

24/12 – have sent anthony a few and had no reply. sent him a christmas message to enjoy the break.
18/11 – text Anthony to say a few stock horses arriving next week at Shory park. Will let him know once we’ve put them through their paces. Cheers
viewed ahorse at nikkis, we need something that will ideally neck rein and is quiet.
7/11 – sent anthony a few ads but they were a bit small. He is tall so really needs over 16 hh. Tomorrow will send him Big mick at SP for his consideration.

3/11 rang to check we are starting the search now – yes we are – ready to go.
Chatted to Anthony- he has a dream horse in his mind!! Decided to delay search and call him first nov as he’s in Melbourne and wants to try his future purchase. He hasn’t ridden at all in 20 years and believes it’s just like riding a bike. He’s just bought 150 acres in terang so he wants either a stock horse or thoroughbred to canter round his 150 acres on checking the stock. Although he wrote no preference with breed he is not keen on a standardbred. He’s 6 foot 3 and 100 kilos so 16h upwards. Not keen to go past 12 yrs old at a maximum. Horse just for farm riding so dressage/jump not important. I think he wants the horse to arrive the day after he moves in!!! He has no where to keep a horse so if purchased before the move it would need to agist (maybe with you). Will look at horses for the rest of the family at a later date.

Height: 14.2 to 15.2
Age: 9 YO to 15 YO
Asking Price: 1000 to 10000
Sex: Gelding, Mare
Rider Level: Beginner
Location: Victoria
Riding History:

We have owned our own stock horse gelding that my daughter rode for over 10 years and he has now semi-retired. In that time I had the some lessons on him, but not consistently. He is not a beginners horse and is very sensitive to aids with a very soft mouth, so I am not a complete beginner in the sense that I know how to be a quiet and gentle rider without hanging on the mouth or flapping my legs about, but I have not done much out of the walk so am definitely still a beginner.

In the lessons we worked mainly in the walk to establish good seat and leg aids, good riding position, gentle hands/aids, and how to get the horse listening and working calmly. I do not have a lot of riding experience outside of these lessons.

I have been handling him and caring for him the whole time we have owned him, so am at an intermediate level for handling and experienced in caring. He is generally a quiet and easy horse to be around (hence intermediate rather than experienced), although can get pushy when food is involved, and also can get nervy when not in work.

Dream Horse:

I am looking for a unicorn and would love a horse that will take care of me in the saddle and enjoys interacting with people. This horse will be a member of the family and we will be a forever home for the right fit.

It must have trail experience, both alone and in company, as I plan on doing a lot of trails. The alone part is very important, as I will often be trail riding alone, and need a horse who is comfortable doing that. As I am a beginner, more woah-than-go would be preferred, and must not be known to bolt on trails (even if the other horses take off), or be spooky.

I will also be having flat lessons to improve my riding, so the horse must have a good basic education. While the more education the better, I have no plans on climbing the dressage levels so it’s not necessary to have high level dressage education or anything like that. As long as the horse is more educated than me, I will be happy.

One more thing that is very important for me, is that the horse will not be in work 5 days a week. I need a horse who will be okay without consistent work, and who’s temperament doesn’t change if they haven’t been ridden in a week. I need to be able to hope on for a plod down the road, or a little work in the arena without the horse being too hot.

Ideally, we would be paddocking the new horse without our gelding. So a horse that is sensible when paddocked together would be great, but we do have room to paddock separately if we had to, so not a deal breaker.

No OTT or green horses as I don’t have the experience. Must be good to catch/shoe/float/teeth, and no bite, buck, kick or bolt. Must be sound. I would prefer no windsuckers. Must be good around farm machinery/dogs/traffic.

I have put 14.2hh-15.2hh, if closer to 14hh would prefer a stockier breed as I am tall (5 7 but light).
Age isn’t a big concern, experience and temperament is more important. While 15yo isn’t a hard max, I do want something that I can ride for a number of years to come, so must be sound/no arthritis.

I would prefer a gelding, but am definitely open to a mare if she ticks all the boxes. As for breed, I am not set on anything in particular, but would love something with the temperament of a QH or clydie. I would prefer no TBs, arabs or breed that are known to be a bit hotter/require more consistent work.

Little managable quirks and personality is welcome, as long as the horse is safe. Safety is my biggest priority.

Overall, I need a horse that has been there, done that. Already had the miles put in and exposure. I don’t want a dressage superstar, or anything flashy, just a good honest horse who is happy to have a beginner learn on it.

Riding Ambitions:

I am a mature woman rider who is a beginner so my ambitions are quite low. I want to do a lot of trail riding, as there are some great places from my front door, and I want to have flat lessons.

I will be having lessons to improve my riding abilities, so the horse must have a solid basic education as I do not have the experience to further this myself.
I have no plans to jump, if the horse knows how it is a bonus but not required.

I want a pleasure riding horse, where I can enjoy the trails and improve my own abilities, while also having a great companion. I have no plans to compete, to jump, or to show. On average, I will probably be riding 1-2 times a week.

We have recently purchased our own property, and the horse we end up finding will be very loved and cared for.

I am located in Kyneton/regional VIC, and am willing to travel anywhere in VIC, COVID restrictions allowing, to view a horse. I am not comfortable buying sight unseen.

beginner; trail riding
Notes:

5/1 – sue getting wilson from mitchell park vetted.

24/12 – sent sue to horses yesterday but both are unsuitable. Sent sue a chrsitams message
17/12 – sent Trish QH to Sue.
12/11 sent a message to say hi
7/11 – Had lots of back and forwards with sue. She viewed a chestnut last weekend which I gave her my opinion as unsuitable.
Spoke to ryders and sue went out to check out bart today and we conducteda FT viewing. Bart looked a legend. Sue is a very beginner rider. I expressed that it would be difficult to recoup the $10,000 he is on the market for if it didnt work out, but he looked super suitable.

21/10 called sue and left a voice mail and a text message.

Riding History:

My 10yo son is a confident beginner/novice coming off a small pony (11.3hh). He has been riding for about 4 years, attended Seville Pony Club for 3.5 years (Grade 5), taken part in low level Dressage and CT comps (in the ribbons) and has attended Brenda Mitton Eventing Clinics. Has a growing interest in jumping and also enjoys trail riding. Has had limited experience riding larger mounts, so will be supported by private instruction to help him make the transition.

Dream Horse:

Looking for a partner in crime – 13.3hh (stocky) – 14.3 hh mare or gelding, 8 – 16 years old. Allrounder type with a bit of exposure/experience to support a junior rider. Confidence builder (probably more whoa than go). Don’t mind a little aged as long as sound and free moving. No vices, no wind suckers, no laminitic ponies (very grass-rich region). Should enjoy jumping (Grade 5/4). Should be happy to receive love and attention from kids. Would love a Welsh-type, but not fussy. Prefer 12k budget unless tack included – can stretch a bit for special candidate.

Riding Ambitions:

Mount to be suitable for PC, low level comps including XC, the odd show and trails. Rider likes to have fun but is ready for more technical instruction.

Confidence builder, children’s mount.

Called 20/10. True second pony for a 10 yr old boy coming off a lazy well schooled pony. 14 hh is ideal but room to move.
Confident little rider but when they have tried a few that have locked onto the jump and gone, the boy has been a bit worried. They are located in Yarra Valley metro, and ready to buy now. Within vic only please. They are a horsey family and ride together. Seems knowledgeable and easy to deal with.

Riding History:

We are looking for a new pony for our 12 year old granddaughter. She has been riding since she was 7 and currently has a lovely 12hh mare who she is sadly out-growing. She has weekly lessons with a very good instructor and regularly attends Pony Club rallys. She is a competent but not hugely courageous rider. She currently jumps 50cms in competitions and is training at 60cms. She has done numerous Pony Club shield competitions, some dressage competitions where she did the Prelim 1A test (she won a second place in this a few weeks ago at a local comp) and a few ODEs although she finds the cross country rather scary still!

Dream Horse:

We are looking for a pony 13.3 – 14.2hh . We want a pony that has had plenty of experience with pony club and shows and that is safe, reliable and kind. It needs to be able to jump and also do some simple dressage. Also, to safely go for outrides to the beach and in the bush. We would prefer a gelding but are happy to consider a mare if it is the right pony. We would also prefer something no younger than 8 years old and preferably not much older than 16 years as it will eventually get passed down to our younger granddaughter.

Riding Ambitions:

Our granddaughter wants to continue to improve her riding and start jumping a bit higher. She is also quite interested in dressage and would be happy if her new horse could take her a bit further with this too. Most of all she wants to continue to have fun with her pony at pony club rallys and local competitions and be able to safely ride on the beach or in the bush.

I haven’t had an extensive amount of time in the saddle. previously owned a thoroughbred 8 years ago, for 2 years, and did most of my learning on him. Went to pony club, had riding lessons. 2 years ago I leased a riding pony to gain my confidence back. had him for 12 months. Prior to any of this, I went on a few trail rides.

Dream Horse:

My dream horse is a chunky, quiet, fuss free pony. Easy to do anything with and be around other horses. Doesn’t have to be ridden daily, and is confident enough to trail ride on its own. an ideal family horse to ride out with my 5yo daughter and is affectionate.

Riding Ambitions:

I would love to pursue the western riding pleasure discipline, ride out on trails regularly, have riding lessons frequently, go to Adult Riders Club, ride in the arena and also go down to the beach in the warmer months. My mum and partner would also like to be able to learn on it and have lessons.

Breed preference ideally; Quarter Horse, Sex preference ideally; Gelding. Price max would be around $7k. If searching outside Victoria, transport costs would need to be included within the $7k limit.

7/11 A LOT of backwards and forwards with sarah regarding several horses. I advised her today that I think we need to stop looking in other states and scale this search down to VIC as I dont consider buying sight unseen suitable for her. Found her a great little QH but she hasnt rung YET to book a viewing so it will probably be gone.
3/11 sarah sending in lots of horses on gumtree and horse deals. Its clear she is set on a QH. Followed up on several that have not been suitable. Sarah has found another she wants to vet check and pursue. Have advised we need to do facetime viewing and more checks. Asked her to slow down with the process.

1/11 Spoke to sarah. Ideal dream type is 15hh QH for trail riding. Not a beginner but lost confidence through a fall and hasnt ridden in 12 months. Under 15 years old. Located boronia, happy to view within VIC and potentially sight unseen. Agistment ready to go. ARC but only level 5.
Messaged Sarah just to let her know I will be in touch soon to discuss her application further.
Also sent her a quiet QH ad (from horse deals sent by nikki) and it was just the type she was after.

My daughter is looking to do agriculture or potentially look into equine studies and would love to improve her horsemanship and just be able to ride, mostly on trails.

Riding History:

Evita is 14, turning 15 on Christmas Day, she is 170cm and weighs around 56kg. She has been riding since she was 6 years old, however a simple whole body shake off her first pony resulted in a broken arm and loss of confidence. She has been on her current 12hh welsh A for the past 7 years and is very confident on her. Evita has also ridden our old TB mare at home in the arena and out on trails around the farm although we had to put her to sleep a few months ago. These are the only two horses Evita has really ridden and she does get nervous on unknown horses. Evita has completed at Ag shows, dressage, showjumping and HT on her current pony (all grade 5). She occasionally gets nervous out on cross country and may pull up to have a walk mid cross country course which usually results in her being eliminated. Her pony can put in the occasional pig-root and spin when a tractor passes, both of which she is happy to handle as she knows the pony, but usually she does not like to ride anything unknown who would do the same.

Dream Horse:

We would like a sound, fun, easy and straight forward been there done that type with plenty of PC and competition experience and no dirt. Needs to be good to hop back onto after a few weeks off and easy for a young and sometimes nervous teenager to do everything with. 14.2hh – 16.2hh, 6 – 16 years old. Any colour / breed. Pony Club experience to Grade 3 preferred. Prefer Victorian location or Vic / NSW boarder location as we do not wish to buy sight unseen.

Riding Ambitions:

Evita would like to have a bit of a go at everything pony club offers. She would like to move up the grades with horse trials, showjumping and dressage as she develops confidence. She will have lessons, attend clinics and do some trail riding.

Notes:

1/11 spoke to bridget. Located in Swan Hill. True second pony 14.2h-15.2 with experience at grade 3 level. Daughter not a fan of having to kick along. Must try before they buy so vic only.

30/10 – Messaged Bridget to let her know I will be in touch soon to discuss her application further.

Sex: Gelding
Rider Level: Novice
Location: Victoria
Riding History:

First introduced to horses in my late teens following high school graduation. Did some very basic trail riding and riding around the farm.

First time owning and purchasing a horse in April this year – bought a re-trained STB after working with them in my veterinary training at university and falling in love with the breed – got to know each other and increased our workload to look at competing at low level endurance events (20km / 40km) after being introduced to the sport by a work colleague. Was riding alone on the roads and doing regular 10km training sessions alone to build up fitness. Unfortunately he has damaged collateral ligaments in one of his front feet and is on rest for the next 6-12 months with a guarded prognosis back to riding. Now getting regular lessons from the coach at my agistment to learn how to sit and ride properly and build a well formed foundation for riding on an awesome warmblood mare who is a dream to ride.

Dream Horse:

Quiet and easy going with; cars (even ones who zoom past), dogs, tractors, sheep etc – over 15.2 hands as I am tall (around 170cm)

Happy to be alone or in company on trail rides (ie no separation anxiety)

Suited for endurance, but also happy to dabble in adult riding club events and other things (ie arena work, round yard work, small jumps just for fun while riding etc). But also with suitability/potential to increase in workload if desired (ie 80km endurance rides).

A horse with a great conformation (straight legs, no previous tendon injuries) that will tolerate a workload well as well as enjoy the endurance side of things (ie not too lazy)

Riding Ambitions:

– Endurance riding (20km initially) with hopes to increase to 40km and 80km
– Adult riding club events (clinics)
– Trail riding alone / or in groups – w/ heavy focus on trotting for endurance training
– Learning to overall be a good rider with a good solid seat / balance with an improved skill level over time

Endurance focus
Notes:

1/2 horse in nsw passed the vet to an acceptable level and pippa has transferred the money

25/1 booked a vetting for the horse in NSW that pippa tried. Vetting is booked for 31st jan

9/1 followed up on one for pippa, sounds really promising, She is going to view it on thursday and take for a ride.

6/1 spoke to pippa on the phone, small animal vet, keeps her horses on agistment. Sending me videos of her riding tomorrow.

She sent me a horse I have followed up on, going to send the owner the video as owner seems pretty switched on and go from there.

24/12 finally heard back from pippa who has been to busy to call back. have sent her happy xmas message and will email her the ebook now.

Riding History:

Rode (competitively at PC and HOTY/ official dressage) from age 8 to 18, and from 13 – 18 worked at a riding school, taking trail rides and eventually teaching lessons (flat and jumping).

After a few years break I started riding again at 30 (6 years ago). My last three horses have been young/straight from the breakers.

Dream Horse:

Seeking a reliable horse to compete in dressage and showing, hopefully something I can also take to the occasional adult riding club rally or beach ride. While I am competent to handle young horses and acrobatics under saddle, my preference would be not to have to as my confidence has taken a hit! Horse still needs to be in front of the leg and suited for state HOTY level showing and should at a minimum be training novice dressage. Non spooky (within reason!)
While size set 15hh – 16.1hh, would consider an outstanding large galloway.

Riding Ambitions:

Over the next 3-5 years I would like to continue showing, and progress a horse to Elementary dressage as well as re-gain some of the joy in trail riding/riding outside an arena!

Some schooling would be an asset. Possibly prefer gelding, although open to a good natured mare.

Riding Ambitions:

I would like to be able to ride a few times per week, trail riding, ARC, low level dressage and maybe a little bit of jumping. I am keen to build on m riding skills so would like to try lots of different things.

Rider Level: Novice
Location: Victoria
Riding History:

I grew up with horses, learning to ride at age 5 and competing my ponies mainly on the flat in the show ring, a little jumping and pony club. Growing up on a big property we did however do everything, including jumping bareback, mounted games etc! I’m now 32yo and getting back in the saddle after 15 years off. I’ve been having weekly lessons since November 2021, on a 16.2hh WB dressage schoolmaster who can be a bit lazy/ behind the leg but I can push him along into an active trot. I can steer, trot and canter in small circles in the arena, plus ride out on (mostly flat) trails. I’ve also ridden a variety of different horses over the past month, including a few quiet OTTB and bigger ponies. I’m 157cm and 49 kg so hopefully that helps with options!

Dream Horse:

Kind, quiet and fuss-free! Easy to handle on the ground, c/s/f is a must. Must be happy to be ridden once a week, occasionally up to three times, but very even-tempered so doesn’t require consistent work. Ideally, established paces on the flat and happy to be ridden mainly in the arena, also out on the trail with friends or solo.

Riding Ambitions:

Well 32yo me is very different to 12yo me! Right now, I’m looking for a pleasure horse that is happy to be ridden mostly in the arena on the flat and out on the trails occasionally, with other hoses or solo. I wish to continue my own lessons so a horse/ bigger pony that is happy to be ridden in the arena, trotting and cantering (a lot!) in circles. My riding school has a dressage focus, so something very low-level here too would be nice but I have no desire to compete! Just to ride out calmly and enjoy having a horse again!

Pleasure; Schoolmaster

We are looking for a super safe sound western pleasure trained gelding (will look at mares if non-marey mares) to be part of our family. Registered with either the AQHA or PHAA. Under 15hh that is not herd bound, good to catch and loves to be doted on.
We have a budget of about $15k with maybe a little wriggle room for our unicorn.

Riding History:

I was a horse owner and experienced all rounder rider as a teenager. I am now 50yo and have just started doing trail rides and some basic lessons to get my confidence up – with a 30 year absence from riding.

Dream Horse:

I am 6ft and 95kg, professional busy mum.

I am after a gentle giant, that would be called bomb proof. Does not spook, a horse that has been there and done that and well trained, and a horse looking to be well loved and to become part of my family.

A horse my 10 yo daughter would feel confident around and could jump on at times (she is having lessons at present and I will get her a horse in next 6-12 months).

Ideally a Clydesdale cross that is bigger than 16H, and has no health issues.

The horse has to have no problems with farriers, dentists, floating, being retrieved from paddocks etc.

Riding Ambitions:

I am seeking a pleasure and trail riding horse. I will continue doing riding lessons on this horse for a while. I found an excellent full-care agistment place that I plan to keep the horse at (where my 10yo does her riding lessons).

Notes:

Had to refund $350 as she found her own quickly.
19/1 sent an email including the e-book asking her to set up a watts ap group

Riding History:

I have previously evented to grade 3, so I have horse experience and confidence once I have established a bond with the horse. But given I have not ridden much in the last year (due to having a baby 4 months ago) I need something that is quiet and and is not going to knock my confidence getting back into riding.

Dream Horse:

I am on the look out for an quiet allrounder t to plod around the farm/ trail ride ( solo and in company) for a while but then I might look at getting into ARC. Not looking for a serious jumper, just lower level dressage and popping over a few small fences here and there.
The horse must be easy to float and handle on the ground and no kick, bolt, buck or bite.
The horse may be paddocked alone for periods of time so must also be ok with this.

Riding Ambitions:

Trail riding – alone and in company
Adult Riding Club
Dressage
Popping over a few small fences

Notes:

14/2 – purchasing Ace the WB – very happy.
9/2 – interested in ace, organising a vetting price down to $5,000

Riding History:

The horse is for my daughter Charlie who is 14 and has been riding for 18 months. She currently has a coach (Angela Hays- Karelia Riding) and has been with Angela for 9 months. She is leaning basic dressage, jumping and horse care. She has attended four camps with this riding school including dressage and show jumping.
Charlie is a beginner who is growing in confidence and skills. She has owned a horse for 6 months but it was put down due to a spinal injury as a result of a neighbour’s horse kicking it. Charlie has anxiety and PTSD from family long term illness. While not an anxious rider she is sometimes unsure. She can catch and put on saddle and bridle independently.
Charlie weighs around 50kg and is about 163 cm tall.

Dream Horse:

Charlie needs a schoolmaster. Well educated and forgiving and eager to please. Charlie doesn’t want problems to fix as she hasn’t got the skills. She needs a confidence booster. Her dream horse is her best friend- not light grey as her last horse was and she is a bit traumatised from the experience.
She prefers a gelding but open to an exception mare if not moody.

Growing up I never owned my own horse but spent most weekends riding my friends horses around the bush, sand dunes and through the town to the beach..
I can walk/trot/canter independently but not overly refined (the last two years is the first time I have ever ridden in an arena or had lessons).
I am not a nervous rider but I need a sensible / reliable horse.

Dream Horse:

Primarily has to be a pleasure to have around with excellent ground manners and who likes attention from the whole family.
Good to c/s/f
I have my daughters 16 year old pony (mare) on the property, so would have to be a horse that doesn’t get separation anxiety if he was to be taken out by himself.
If we were to go out on the trails together I would need a horse that is happy to lead and is calm and sensible.
I like Standard Breeds as one of my favourites growing up was a Standy.

Riding Ambitions:

ARC/Trail riding/clinics/lessons/obstacles/low level fun stuff.
I have a 16 year old niece that has been having lessons for the last 4 years and she would love it if I got a horse that she could take to PC with my daughter.

Height: 15 to 16.2
Age: 6 YO to 15 YO
Asking Price: to 15000
Sex: Gelding, Mare
Rider Level: Novice, Intermediate
Location: New South Wales
Riding History:

I am a novice/intermediate rider, at a novice dressage level but fairly new to jumping. Have had many lessons on fairly green OTTBs. I am a capable rider but do occasionally get nervous, so I need a horse who won’t take advantage of that or misinterpret it for excitement.

Dream Horse:

– 15.1-16.1hh
– Basic laterals established, with balanced and adjustable paces
– Calm and confident over jumps/obstacles
– Good in traffic, in water, and on trails
– No hard keepers, must have good legs and feet
– NO soundness issues
– NO bite, kick, rear, buck, bolt, etc. Must be good to float and for the farrier.
– Quiet and willing undersaddle (forward is fine, but not hot, spooky, or overly sensitive)

My perfect horse would be 8-10yrs, 15.2/15.3hh, Elementary trained and comfortable eventing up to 1m. They would also have a comfortable trot/canter.
I adore arabians, brumbies, and morgans but am open to any breed. Pure TBs are not ideal but if they have good conformation and sturdy legs and feet I will definitely consider them as well.
Greys, cream dilutes, tobianos, flaxen chestnuts, and unusual colours are also a bonus.
Soundness and personality are the most important things as I want to keep this horse for the rest of their life.
I have a budget up to 12k.

Riding Ambitions:

Wanting a horse for equal parts novice/elementary dressage, low-level (EvA) eventing, and trail riding, along with the occasional bareback ride and liberty work. Doesn’t need to be super competitive, just safe and responsive as I plan to compete more for fun and self-improvement than to win ribbons.

Notes:

11/4 – alex sent WB at shory park. her local riding school is closing down so she is considering her options there also.

21/3 alex been sent multiple options, just not quite there yet.

28/2 sent alex a message saying we will chase footage of huntley. Told her following up on a few options.

Riding History:

I have been riding off and on since I was 10. I had my own pony/horse until I was 18 and then went to college, got married, had children etc. I started riding again in my early 30s and since then have always had my own horse. In the last 10 or so years I have been having regular dressage lessons with a qualified instructor.

Dream Horse:

I am looking for a horse to do some low level dressage on – up to elementary is ideal – as well as trail riding. The breed is not as important as temperament – I want a willing, calm and experienced horse who is not over-reactive to different situations. A horse that has had lots of exposure to different situations is ideal.

Riding Ambitions:

I would like to compete for fun in some low level local dressage competitions as well as to trail ride in the bush and on the beach with my husband. Mostly my ambition is to keep riding safely for as long as possible (I am 69 this year) and to continue with my regular dressage/flat lessons.

Dressage
Notes:

21/3 – been sent multiple options. Chasing footage of the queenstown horse for her.

28/2 found alison a horse in yass, nsw which may suit pending the outcome of another viewing today.

21/2 spoken with alison, asked her to set up a watts ap, it was just via text last time. 15-16hh elementary level dressage.

Jacinta, 14 year old female, been in Pony Club 6 months, weekly lessons 1 1/2 years, trail rides. Also, currently leasing an unrideable horse learning ground work. We purchased 1st horse (Percheron x Appy) mid last year. Rode/cared for him for 2-3 months. She fell off 7 times (spooking, horse shy), on 8th time, concussion. He was sent to 2 trainers, was told by both he wasn’t trained well, and on-sold to appropriate home.

Dream Horse:

Appy, ASH, Cross breed Arab, QH, 15hh plus (Jacinta is 5’6), calm but can still go. A horse that is her best buddy (with herd mentality in mind). No thoroughbred unless amazing.

Riding Ambitions:

No competitions at this stage. Jacinta would like to use horse for her current lessons at Jolong Park and Pony Club (at Jolong Park). Would like to be able to do trail rides (in groups) and ride in arena with other horses. Has enjoyed low level jumps, so would like to do a bit more of that. Horse would be housed at Jolong Park, which is a busy-ish agistment.

Sex: Gelding, Mare
Rider Level: Novice, Intermediate
Location: South Australia
Riding History:

I am in my late 40s & from the UK and grew up riding. My mum ran a riding school so I had my own ponies, two older smaller ponies and then I had a 13.2hh 6yr gelding Sparky and we grew up together, pony club, hunting, and show jumping at shows and winning lots of rosettes. All my ponies were honest, a bit naughty from time to time but genuine. I had a particular bond with Sparky – we trusted each other and he rarely put a foot wrong. He was especially precious as my parents were divorced, he was my therapy. I then had a mare who was lovely. In the end we sold her when I hit my late teens and didn’t have the time to commit due to exams. It was heart wrenching. I then went to University etc. I’ve since ridden every opportunity I’ve had – friend’s horses, riding holidays. When we first arrived in Australia I leased a 19yr schoolmaster eventer who was awesome. I did dressage lessons and trail rode him. I leased him fir about 6mths until I got pregnant. In the last two years I have been having pole clinics with an instructor on school horses. I started riding a young warmblood who I fell in love with and was going to buy him but he turned out be really green on our first trail ride (very looky with rearing) and we had a nasty accident. This was late November 2021. Long story short – Wrong horse, wrong time, wrong place. Also I do think the instructor / seller mismatched was more interested in selling him rather than working out if he was the best fit for me. Regardless of that I consider myself a competent, confident rider but probably a bit green from missing so many years of adult riding.

Dream Horse:

Just the usual unicorn!! I’m 165cm & around 62kg so around 15.2hh, 10yrs+, experienced, honest, genuine. Enjoys fun solo trail rides and competent jumper. Nicely put together, absolutely no rear, buck, bite or bolt. Easy to handle and no vices. Forward going, not a plodder but not a loose cannon either. If I had to choose I’d say more whoa than go but I don’t want to have to push it forward constantly.
I like a bouncy horse rather than my lolapy one (if you know what I mean!). The bond is really important to me and the feeling that we’re a partnership/have each other’s backs .

Riding Ambitions:

In the first instance, trail riding, trips to beach, clinics with an instructor, then maybe look at show jumping/eventing or hunting. No set ambitions really other than to really enjoy trail riding. I really dislike dressage and only school by necessity.

Notes:

11/5 sally asked to pause the search

Riding Ambitions:

Trail riding maybe some ARC

Notes:

21/4 – maggie is back on the search. Horse may stay with her instructor initially to cement the bond.

29/3 – Had a chat to Maggie on the phone. Located Bass coast, near phillip island, search area is a 4 hr drive from her home location. Limited to viewing on weekends and the occasional wednesday. Maggie has been looking for over a year now. Maggie has multiple sclerosis leading her to have balance issues on the ground and also when trotting. she requires a horse that is clam when she looses her balance and does not react. Her budget if firm at $5000 or $6500 if includes tack and gear. Explained difficult within her budget and may need to look at older horses. Ideally 16-17 would be her max ut will consider older. Maggie is 165cms and 70 kilos, doesnt feel great on 15hh, ideally 16hh and no upwards limit, 17hh is fine.
Horse will be kept on agistment 5 mins from her house. Its a quiet agistment with a max of 9 horses for trail riding. Windsuckers may not be welcome at her agistment. MUST BE A GELDING which is able to be paddocked with one or two other geldings.
Currently having lessons in warragul sporadically. Maggie has lost her confidence, especially on the ground after being bucked off by a TB. She had her friends horse on loan last year succcessfully and has owned horses in the past. Horse must love cuddles and be her friend. Will just be used for trail riding on own and with others, maybe some very low level arc. Will need to be floated to trails so must float well.

28/3 – called maggie and left a messge. Sent her an invite to join watts ap. Sent welcome email with ebook.

Notes:

22/4 spoke with corinne, we are searching for Sienna her daughter. Grew up riding the negihbours horses and light trail riding. Moved to jolong over lockdown and sienna loves jumping and want to start eventing. will be starting at grade 5. This horse is a stepping stone, must be super schoolmaster for grades 5, 4 and 3.
sienaa can be quite anxious and will probably need to try the horse twice. Prefer gelding but will look at mares. Can send chestnuts although not the ideal. No older than 15/16.
Mother corinne (pronounced corin) can ride and trys the horses before her daughter gets oon. Videos posted are current. Idela location out melbourne suburbs and towards gippsland but will consider more for the right unicorn, no sight unseen.
Tried Hinley of cargill tyson and mother said it wasnt right, saw later price reduced by $10,000. they loved its type and canter though.

Attends pony club and has regular lessons with professional instructor.

Riding History:

I have had horses for 51 years and can provide a very experienced and loving home. I have managed ponies with laminitis and weight issues.

Dream Horse:

I am looking for a first pony for my 5 year old granddaughter to learn to ride and her 3 year old sister to have a sit on. The pony can be any breed or colour, temperament is the key, the pony can be older but I would prefer a pony under 20 if possible.

Riding Ambitions:

I would like to be able to lead the pony at the walk and trot for the 5 year old and eventually for her to learn to ride independently. I have a fenced Menage so this can be done safely. I would like the girls to be able to brush the pony and to be safe around the pony while learning all the rules and correct handling.

Bombproof, safe with children
Notes:

24/oct just sent a pony from horse deals advertised a minute ago. Jane having this one vetted.

Currently getting one vetted.
Oct 13 – Also sent a clients little paint shetland Jelly – an absolute ripper. $5000 inc all gear. Not advertised yet.
Oct 13 – Checking out a Welsh via FaceTime viewing onSaturday I sent through off Horsedeals. Looks a ripper hope they’re not too slow! Nikki

Spent time searching through shetland sales aus, pony sites, no luck.

Sent her one nikki sent through but in tamworth NSW so no interest.

5/10 jane declined black pony and limited her search to Vic only

4/10 sent jane black shetland pony.

Quiet paddock pony wanted , super safe, lead rein shetland

Spoke to Jane. Really nice and experienced horse owner. Pony for 2 yr old and 5yr old, to walk and trot around on , on and off lead.
Happy to look at ponies 2 hrs radius of Doreen (your place included). Also happy to buy sight unseen with FaceTime viewing.
Flexible on size but no super wide shetlands. $3000-$4000 ideally but a little more for something perfect. She would like something with 5-6yrs left in it or very gentle, occasional riding. Nothing that needs cushings medication. Would go to 21-22yrs if young 21-22.
Not looking for a show pony or competition pony. Just a good quiet pull out the paddock pony.
Searching on and off for a year , COVID been an issue for her. Ready to buy now.

Doesn’t need to be a school master but an all rounder and not ‘quirky’

Riding Ambitions:

To have fun – I’m not interested in serious competitions

Sane sensible chilled
Notes:

16/3 ring Kay beginning of July 2022. currently having lessons to improve her riding.

3/11 Kay has found a riding school with horses so she is going back to lessons to improve her riding and save more money. Then she can look for a “better” horse. Pause the search for 6 months please.

16/10 messaged kay to let her know nothing has coming up as yet but we are searching our hardest, also informed her the video she was sending me by email has not come through as yet.

After ringing sunny is unsuitable. Kay has decided that temperament is the only thing that matter, height, breed, age, sex are irrelevant.

Sent kay Sunny the QLD horse from horse deals to ask her her opinion. Sent ad and video.

Called kay sat 2nd october just to say hi and remind her to send some photos and they havent found anything suitable as yet.
Kay- lovely old lady. Looking for a best friend for low level ARC. Maybe a few poles, 60cm. Lessons in a group and trail riding, navigation rides. Got sold a mare that bolted with her in an arena and broke her collarbone. Has ridden since, probably a bit nervous. Slightly flexible on all her requirements for the right horse. Happy to buy sight unseen if all due diligence has been done. Must have been to ARC or similar and be proven out and about. Doesn’t need to be flash or high level anything, think she been put off the OTT’s, STB ok. Her favourite horse ever was a quarter horse gelding who responded to voice commands and was just her friend, he’s retired at her place with arthritis. Going to send me a photo, she doesn’t have any video.

Riding History:

We are looking for a family horse and best friend

I am in my mid 40s and rode for many years – as a child to late teens, I rode competively in the ring/dressage. I am getting back into riding and having lessons to get me ride fit. I am a confident rider.

My 8 year old daughter is a beginner and currently in lessons, she is being taught properly in a round yard, no reigns, then no saddle for her balance etc she can now rise and sit trot off the lunge comfortably, stop, start and turn. She will be proceeding to canter after the holidays.

Dream Horse:

See below – A mare that we could later breed would be a bonus, so good bloodlines. Although gelding also fine.

Riding Ambitions:

Looking for a patient “been there and done that” pony my daughter is quite tall and is growing like grass so that is why we are looking for pony around 15hh ( a touch smaller could be ok)

Clearly needs to be safe/sound and something that she may use for interschools when she begins high school – she has showed some interest in dressage.

Please note this will not be a competitive home per say, we are simply looking for a horse that has plenty of experience/education as I enjoy an educated ride, due to my show days and a pony can help my daughter continue to gain confidence and skill – maybe ex show/dressage that maybe ready for an easier life, with weekly rides in the arena/trail, tonnes of love & attention.

Notes:

oct 29- sending Sasha horses every day pretty much!
oct 13 – vet check delayed until next week as horse hit its head. Still keen. Hopefully next Tuesday
oct 5 – called buckskin show pony for her – proved unsuitable
oct 3 – sent her three horses for consideration.

Oct 8- Vet checking one next week. Tuesday onwards in QLD

Grown up and ridden all my life. Grandfather used to breed. Spent some time living in city where there was little activity but living on acreage again for last 3 years and currently own 2 horses for pleasure. One OTT and one Cob cross which was purchased for pleasure harness but proving to be unsuitable.

Dream Horse:

Feel like I’m searching for the impossible ! Looking for a horse for pleasure harness driving. If broken to saddle that would be a bonus but not a deal breaker. Something between 14.3 and 15h needed to fit my Jinker and Buggy. Not fussed on Breed as long as ready to drive and good ground manners and suitable to paddock with my OTT mare who is friendly but can be bossy/nippy at feed time. Have post an rail fencing so no windsuckers either. If we are talking dream horse I would describe a good looking Black gelding at requested height. But have been looking for quite some time so as long as ready to go, friendly and good manners I am flexible.

Riding Ambitions:

I only ride for pleasure so something suitable to drive every week and if broken to saddle then will be ridden on average once a week as well.

Harness

Looking for my husband Paul. He has done some trail riding and a bit of riding around the farm. He is soft and gentle with all animals and, while tall and fairly athletic, is not heavy.
We have a 4 acre property where the new horse will share paddocks with my gelding, Espy (who Nikki knows quite well :)).

Dream Horse:

Paul needs a friendly, no fuss, safe mount that will become his friend. Experienced, bom-proof, horse that enjoys a trail ride, cuddles and treats. Something that will be happy to bum around a paddock a lot of the time, and then be pulled out and go for a (low speed) adventure somewhere. Must be easy to catch, float, rug, do feet and teeth. Does not need to be super pretty or athletic or classically educated, just needs to be easy, level headed and happy to plod along.

Riding Ambitions:

Paul’s main goal is to be able to feel safe around his new furry friend. And to be able to take him to cool places and ride on the trails.

Notes:

Riding History:

I started riding at age 9, got my own horse at age 12. I was very competitive at Pony Club in everything (games to showing to grade 3 eventing). At 18, I got an OTT and evented level 2. then stopped riding. I returned to riding in my early 30s and had an OTT and a 16.3hh WB who I evented HRCV grade 3 on. I sold him 7 years ago. This year, I have started riding again under instruction on my friend’s WB doing mainly dressage. This has stopped in lockdown though as I live in Melbourne.

Dream Horse:

15.2-16hh – nice movement and a love of jumping. Must be good out on trails and rarely refuse jumps. Bonus points for brown or black horses and ones that are a bit smoochy! The dream is the horse has had some exposure or success at events but I am beginning to give up hope of that.

Riding Ambitions:

I am looking to do a bit of everything. I will be under instruction and will be able to get a trainer to help if the horse is a little green. My ambition is to do ARC, trail riding, low level eventing and straight dressage. I am not a nervous rider but I don’t want a horse that bucks or bolts. The odd pigroot is ok. Bad ground manners ok. Horse must load on the float well.

Notes:

9/10 lucys horse passed vet and is being transported to victoria on tuesday 12th. Nikki to call/message and discuss a potential partial refund
3/10 – lucy informed has found a horse in SA sight unseen she is getting vetted next week.
Chatted to Lucy. Really easy going lady. In lockdown and wants to test ride so probably leave till restrictions are lifted.
She tried Alfie with Keely and didn’t feel that it was quite educated enough or responsive enough to the aids. She has tried 3 so far and regretted not buying one on advice from the vet, which is now sold.
Her last own horse was 7 years ago. Flexible on everything but definitely no taller than 16.1 as she has short legs.
Point and shoot jumper. Comp exp to grade 3, maybe higher in dressage.
Must not wind suck
Will be kept at Agistment which is all organised.
Must load. Doesn’t have to be super quiet, just not nasty

Dream Horse:

Not too tall. About 15.2 Max. Does not have to be the best looking horse on the lot, but its a MUST, that he/she be able to go on a trail ride and low level ARC. A good confidence builder…

Riding Ambitions:

Eventually be confident enough to go to more comps, but firstly just enjoy the company of myself and my horse. Bring the joy back to riding again….

Sent melissa nice paint. Nikki called. She bought it!!
10/10 sent melissa, haflinger from mildura. Melissa is firm on 14.2 hh and upwards.
Horse she was going to see was cancalled on her.
5/10 going to try the horse on thursday night
4/10 spoke to melissa going to ring about the qh x tb, 11 yr old.
Oct 3rd sent her qh x tb mare for her opinion
Oct 2nd Melissa expanded search to include
16 hands
Melissa law. Bought teddy from you, last year ,14 months ago. She adores him but just too spooky and sensitive. She’s broken her wrist off him in an indoor arena and had another major fall. Daughter has moved onto to OTT they love. They will keep teddy and lease him.
This horse is just for Melissa. Flexible on all points listed. She has definitely lost her confidence and was quite emotional to talk to. Horse will be used for trail riding and dressage. She is graded level 5 dressage and showing. Wants something with tested competition experience.
Warrandyte is metro but once out happy to travel around Vic and borders. Would be open to sight unseen but I’m not sure that this is right for her judging by how emotional she got.

Dream Horse:

A quiet sensible horse that is straight forward to saddle up and easy to get on that is established and brave willing jumper doesn’t have to be show quality or the prettiest horse understanding as I’m not the most balanced rider

Riding Ambitions:

To mainly ride at home and go to the odd eventing competition at grade 5 level but I don’t care if I don’t place just so long as I can get around the cross country course safely I have enough ribbons for a life time from my old horse budget will grow the longer it takes don’t care about waiting

Sent claire stunning bay gelding in QLD for her opinion.Spoke to claire. Best way to communicate with her is text message. Grade 4 is her ambition with the horse. Something that can go out a t grade 5 now. She says she is a confident rider on a quiet and easy horse. Not happy to go under 10years old, but happy to go older. Prefer to stay in VIC, but at the same time open to options. Not able to increase budget at this point in time.
Called 5.18pm 11/10 – left text message.
Called 8.05 this morning and left a voice message 11/10 saying I will call back at 5.10 this afternoon.

Hi Claire,

Thanks so much for enlisting the help to find your new mount! We are thrilled to be able to assist you.

We will start the hunt immediately and you will be started to send options that may suit! With your budget obviously being a touch lower, I think more the older style with plenty of experience and calm nature but slightly winding down may suit? Hopefully similar to what you were thinking.

Please shoot through or feel free to call anytime – we will text / email options as we discover them.

You will hear from either myself, Nikki or my co-worker an Match maker extraordinaire Heleni (H) will be in contact soon,

Many thanks,
Nikki Cook

I have owned 7 horses in that time. Teak ,muffin,chief,jatz,dubai( who i inherented in 2006 from my sister who saddly passed away from a brain aneurysm.
Dubai passed away last year at the age of 30) and the horse i have now gilbert.
My last one Jatz I owened for 25 yrs he passed away at the age of 31 in 2015
I then bought my horse I have now Gilbert who I was told at the time was 14 but have since found out he was probably 25.that was in 2015
So now would make him 31
I have competed in low level dressage & hacking and go on the odd trail ride
I am still having lessons & competing on Gilbert, at our last comp in Feb of this year came first
I love Gilbert and he will be with me for life and even though he is well and healthy and doesn’t look or act like a 31 yr old ( I still am not sure of his true age have tried to trace his brand ect but have had no luck and even though I have been told he is in his 30s I still think he is in his late 20s. The brand on his shoulder is a 1 over a 1 so he was either born 1991 or 2001
I am thinking of retiring him and getting an other horse
Were i agist ( central Coast nsw) I have been there for 21 yrs ,the new horse would go in with my horse and his paddock mate ( a mare) in a nice paddock be fed every day and looked after for the rest of its life
Most have been t/breds
Muffin was a Arab x pony ( lovely dressage horse)
Teak was a Galloway unsure of what breed he was
Jatz was a t/breed again lovely dressage horse got up to elementary dressage with him
Chief was a t/b and 16.3hh
Gilbert is a t/b has really lovely movments is about 15.3hh and a bright bay

Dream Horse:

My dream horse would be a younger version of Gilbert
Would like 5-15 yr old ( willing to look at younger)about 15hh to 16hh gelding preferably but willing to look at mares ( all the horses I have had have been geldings)
Somthing that as done a bit of competition ( but not fussy if it hasn’t) as I will be getting lessons with it
Something Quiet( but with a littlebit of omff),with some nice movement, gets on with other horses, can go barefoot
Good on the ground ,no vices
Would like a grey but any colour would do
Would like a OTT somthing that has had a bit of basic training that I could continue its training
I do have dodge knees ( get sore and don’t have the strength in them any more)
So would need a horse that is not to strong when I ride

Riding Ambitions:

Would like to continue to compete at dressage ( Would like to get back up to alest novice level)
A bit of hacking
And trail rides
And do a bit of liberty

Gelding/ mare

Oct 8 – spoke to Luisa. Had a terrible fall so looking for completely bombproof ideally.

Budget – would look up to $20k if it was perfect!

Doesn’t like Appy eyes (worried about blindness).

Ideally just pleasure riding, may expand to ARC if she finds a proper no fuss unicorn.

Lovely lady but has had quite the spook so proper unicorns only, realistically a beginner who is scared to canter.

3/2- sent Anthony and out of work stock horse and asked if he would consider sending it to SP to get back into work and going.
5/1 – rang anthony, hes very keen to get a horse. Only ASH considered. Have put a few wanted ads on ASH pages.

24/12 – have sent anthony a few and had no reply. sent him a christmas message to enjoy the break.
18/11 – text Anthony to say a few stock horses arriving next week at Shory park. Will let him know once we’ve put them through their paces. Cheers
viewed ahorse at nikkis, we need something that will ideally neck rein and is quiet.
7/11 – sent anthony a few ads but they were a bit small. He is tall so really needs over 16 hh. Tomorrow will send him Big mick at SP for his consideration.

3/11 rang to check we are starting the search now – yes we are – ready to go.
Chatted to Anthony- he has a dream horse in his mind!! Decided to delay search and call him first nov as he’s in Melbourne and wants to try his future purchase. He hasn’t ridden at all in 20 years and believes it’s just like riding a bike. He’s just bought 150 acres in terang so he wants either a stock horse or thoroughbred to canter round his 150 acres on checking the stock. Although he wrote no preference with breed he is not keen on a standardbred. He’s 6 foot 3 and 100 kilos so 16h upwards. Not keen to go past 12 yrs old at a maximum. Horse just for farm riding so dressage/jump not important. I think he wants the horse to arrive the day after he moves in!!! He has no where to keep a horse so if purchased before the move it would need to agist (maybe with you). Will look at horses for the rest of the family at a later date.

Height: 14.2 to 15.2
Age: 9 YO to 15 YO
Asking Price: 1000 to 10000
Sex: Gelding, Mare
Rider Level: Beginner
Location: Victoria
Riding History:

We have owned our own stock horse gelding that my daughter rode for over 10 years and he has now semi-retired. In that time I had the some lessons on him, but not consistently. He is not a beginners horse and is very sensitive to aids with a very soft mouth, so I am not a complete beginner in the sense that I know how to be a quiet and gentle rider without hanging on the mouth or flapping my legs about, but I have not done much out of the walk so am definitely still a beginner.

In the lessons we worked mainly in the walk to establish good seat and leg aids, good riding position, gentle hands/aids, and how to get the horse listening and working calmly. I do not have a lot of riding experience outside of these lessons.

I have been handling him and caring for him the whole time we have owned him, so am at an intermediate level for handling and experienced in caring. He is generally a quiet and easy horse to be around (hence intermediate rather than experienced), although can get pushy when food is involved, and also can get nervy when not in work.

Dream Horse:

I am looking for a unicorn and would love a horse that will take care of me in the saddle and enjoys interacting with people. This horse will be a member of the family and we will be a forever home for the right fit.

It must have trail experience, both alone and in company, as I plan on doing a lot of trails. The alone part is very important, as I will often be trail riding alone, and need a horse who is comfortable doing that. As I am a beginner, more woah-than-go would be preferred, and must not be known to bolt on trails (even if the other horses take off), or be spooky.

I will also be having flat lessons to improve my riding, so the horse must have a good basic education. While the more education the better, I have no plans on climbing the dressage levels so it’s not necessary to have high level dressage education or anything like that. As long as the horse is more educated than me, I will be happy.

One more thing that is very important for me, is that the horse will not be in work 5 days a week. I need a horse who will be okay without consistent work, and who’s temperament doesn’t change if they haven’t been ridden in a week. I need to be able to hope on for a plod down the road, or a little work in the arena without the horse being too hot.

Ideally, we would be paddocking the new horse without our gelding. So a horse that is sensible when paddocked together would be great, but we do have room to paddock separately if we had to, so not a deal breaker.

No OTT or green horses as I don’t have the experience. Must be good to catch/shoe/float/teeth, and no bite, buck, kick or bolt. Must be sound. I would prefer no windsuckers. Must be good around farm machinery/dogs/traffic.

I have put 14.2hh-15.2hh, if closer to 14hh would prefer a stockier breed as I am tall (5 7 but light).
Age isn’t a big concern, experience and temperament is more important. While 15yo isn’t a hard max, I do want something that I can ride for a number of years to come, so must be sound/no arthritis.

I would prefer a gelding, but am definitely open to a mare if she ticks all the boxes. As for breed, I am not set on anything in particular, but would love something with the temperament of a QH or clydie. I would prefer no TBs, arabs or breed that are known to be a bit hotter/require more consistent work.

Little managable quirks and personality is welcome, as long as the horse is safe. Safety is my biggest priority.

Overall, I need a horse that has been there, done that. Already had the miles put in and exposure. I don’t want a dressage superstar, or anything flashy, just a good honest horse who is happy to have a beginner learn on it.

Riding Ambitions:

I am a mature woman rider who is a beginner so my ambitions are quite low. I want to do a lot of trail riding, as there are some great places from my front door, and I want to have flat lessons.

I will be having lessons to improve my riding abilities, so the horse must have a solid basic education as I do not have the experience to further this myself.
I have no plans to jump, if the horse knows how it is a bonus but not required.

I want a pleasure riding horse, where I can enjoy the trails and improve my own abilities, while also having a great companion. I have no plans to compete, to jump, or to show. On average, I will probably be riding 1-2 times a week.

We have recently purchased our own property, and the horse we end up finding will be very loved and cared for.

I am located in Kyneton/regional VIC, and am willing to travel anywhere in VIC, COVID restrictions allowing, to view a horse. I am not comfortable buying sight unseen.

beginner; trail riding
Notes:

5/1 – sue getting wilson from mitchell park vetted.

24/12 – sent sue to horses yesterday but both are unsuitable. Sent sue a chrsitams message
17/12 – sent Trish QH to Sue.
12/11 sent a message to say hi
7/11 – Had lots of back and forwards with sue. She viewed a chestnut last weekend which I gave her my opinion as unsuitable.
Spoke to ryders and sue went out to check out bart today and we conducteda FT viewing. Bart looked a legend. Sue is a very beginner rider. I expressed that it would be difficult to recoup the $10,000 he is on the market for if it didnt work out, but he looked super suitable.

21/10 called sue and left a voice mail and a text message.

Riding History:

My 10yo son is a confident beginner/novice coming off a small pony (11.3hh). He has been riding for about 4 years, attended Seville Pony Club for 3.5 years (Grade 5), taken part in low level Dressage and CT comps (in the ribbons) and has attended Brenda Mitton Eventing Clinics. Has a growing interest in jumping and also enjoys trail riding. Has had limited experience riding larger mounts, so will be supported by private instruction to help him make the transition.

Dream Horse:

Looking for a partner in crime – 13.3hh (stocky) – 14.3 hh mare or gelding, 8 – 16 years old. Allrounder type with a bit of exposure/experience to support a junior rider. Confidence builder (probably more whoa than go). Don’t mind a little aged as long as sound and free moving. No vices, no wind suckers, no laminitic ponies (very grass-rich region). Should enjoy jumping (Grade 5/4). Should be happy to receive love and attention from kids. Would love a Welsh-type, but not fussy. Prefer 12k budget unless tack included – can stretch a bit for special candidate.

Riding Ambitions:

Mount to be suitable for PC, low level comps including XC, the odd show and trails. Rider likes to have fun but is ready for more technical instruction.

Confidence builder, children’s mount.

Called 20/10. True second pony for a 10 yr old boy coming off a lazy well schooled pony. 14 hh is ideal but room to move.
Confident little rider but when they have tried a few that have locked onto the jump and gone, the boy has been a bit worried. They are located in Yarra Valley metro, and ready to buy now. Within vic only please. They are a horsey family and ride together. Seems knowledgeable and easy to deal with.

Riding History:

We are looking for a new pony for our 12 year old granddaughter. She has been riding since she was 7 and currently has a lovely 12hh mare who she is sadly out-growing. She has weekly lessons with a very good instructor and regularly attends Pony Club rallys. She is a competent but not hugely courageous rider. She currently jumps 50cms in competitions and is training at 60cms. She has done numerous Pony Club shield competitions, some dressage competitions where she did the Prelim 1A test (she won a second place in this a few weeks ago at a local comp) and a few ODEs although she finds the cross country rather scary still!

Dream Horse:

We are looking for a pony 13.3 – 14.2hh . We want a pony that has had plenty of experience with pony club and shows and that is safe, reliable and kind. It needs to be able to jump and also do some simple dressage. Also, to safely go for outrides to the beach and in the bush. We would prefer a gelding but are happy to consider a mare if it is the right pony. We would also prefer something no younger than 8 years old and preferably not much older than 16 years as it will eventually get passed down to our younger granddaughter.

Riding Ambitions:

Our granddaughter wants to continue to improve her riding and start jumping a bit higher. She is also quite interested in dressage and would be happy if her new horse could take her a bit further with this too. Most of all she wants to continue to have fun with her pony at pony club rallys and local competitions and be able to safely ride on the beach or in the bush.

I haven’t had an extensive amount of time in the saddle. previously owned a thoroughbred 8 years ago, for 2 years, and did most of my learning on him. Went to pony club, had riding lessons. 2 years ago I leased a riding pony to gain my confidence back. had him for 12 months. Prior to any of this, I went on a few trail rides.

Dream Horse:

My dream horse is a chunky, quiet, fuss free pony. Easy to do anything with and be around other horses. Doesn’t have to be ridden daily, and is confident enough to trail ride on its own. an ideal family horse to ride out with my 5yo daughter and is affectionate.

Riding Ambitions:

I would love to pursue the western riding pleasure discipline, ride out on trails regularly, have riding lessons frequently, go to Adult Riders Club, ride in the arena and also go down to the beach in the warmer months. My mum and partner would also like to be able to learn on it and have lessons.

Breed preference ideally; Quarter Horse, Sex preference ideally; Gelding. Price max would be around $7k. If searching outside Victoria, transport costs would need to be included within the $7k limit.

5/1 sent sara lexie from mitchell park farm to go and see.

7/11 A LOT of backwards and forwards with sarah regarding several horses. I advised her today that I think we need to stop looking in other states and scale this search down to VIC as I dont consider buying sight unseen suitable for her. Found her a great little QH but she hasnt rung YET to book a viewing so it will probably be gone.
3/11 sarah sending in lots of horses on gumtree and horse deals. Its clear she is set on a QH. Followed up on several that have not been suitable. Sarah has found another she wants to vet check and pursue. Have advised we need to do facetime viewing and more checks. Asked her to slow down with the process.

1/11 Spoke to sarah. Ideal dream type is 15hh QH for trail riding. Not a beginner but lost confidence through a fall and hasnt ridden in 12 months. Under 15 years old. Located boronia, happy to view within VIC and potentially sight unseen. Agistment ready to go. ARC but only level 5.
Messaged Sarah just to let her know I will be in touch soon to discuss her application further.
Also sent her a quiet QH ad (from horse deals sent by nikki) and it was just the type she was after.

Dream Horse:

Just something that is easy going. Not easily spooked by dogs, kangaroos or other things as we live in the Grampians. One that will enjoy longer rides and is fit enough to do so mostly for trail riding not looking to compete.

Riding Ambitions:

My daughter is looking to do agriculture or potentially look into equine studies and would love to improve her horsemanship and just be able to ride, mostly on trails.
Would love to complete peaceful trails and not be scared if riding out on my own. No real ambitions other than to just enjoy it.

Rider Level: Beginner, Novice
Location: Victoria
Riding History:

Evita is 14, turning 15 on Christmas Day, she is 170cm and weighs around 56kg. She has been riding since she was 6 years old, however a simple whole body shake off her first pony resulted in a broken arm and loss of confidence. She has been on her current 12hh welsh A for the past 7 years and is very confident on her. Evita has also ridden our old TB mare at home in the arena and out on trails around the farm although we had to put her to sleep a few months ago. These are the only two horses Evita has really ridden and she does get nervous on unknown horses. Evita has completed at Ag shows, dressage, showjumping and HT on her current pony (all grade 5). She occasionally gets nervous out on cross country and may pull up to have a walk mid cross country course which usually results in her being eliminated. Her pony can put in the occasional pig-root and spin when a tractor passes, both of which she is happy to handle as she knows the pony, but usually she does not like to ride anything unknown who would do the same.

Dream Horse:

We would like a sound, fun, easy and straight forward been there done that type with plenty of PC and competition experience and no dirt. Needs to be good to hop back onto after a few weeks off and easy for a young and sometimes nervous teenager to do everything with. 14.2hh – 16.2hh, 6 – 16 years old. Any colour / breed. Pony Club experience to Grade 3 preferred. Prefer Victorian location or Vic / NSW boarder location as we do not wish to buy sight unseen.

Riding Ambitions:

Evita would like to have a bit of a go at everything pony club offers. She would like to move up the grades with horse trials, showjumping and dressage as she develops confidence. She will have lessons, attend clinics and do some trail riding.

Notes:

1/11 spoke to bridget. Located in Swan Hill. True second pony 14.2h-15.2 with experience at grade 3 level. Daughter not a fan of having to kick along. Must try before they buy so vic only.

Sex: Gelding
Rider Level: Novice
Location: Victoria
Riding History:

First introduced to horses in my late teens following high school graduation. Did some very basic trail riding and riding around the farm.

First time owning and purchasing a horse in April this year – bought a re-trained STB after working with them in my veterinary training at university and falling in love with the breed – got to know each other and increased our workload to look at competing at low level endurance events (20km / 40km) after being introduced to the sport by a work colleague. Was riding alone on the roads and doing regular 10km training sessions alone to build up fitness. Unfortunately he has damaged collateral ligaments in one of his front feet and is on rest for the next 6-12 months with a guarded prognosis back to riding. Now getting regular lessons from the coach at my agistment to learn how to sit and ride properly and build a well formed foundation for riding on an awesome warmblood mare who is a dream to ride.

Dream Horse:

Quiet and easy going with; cars (even ones who zoom past), dogs, tractors, sheep etc – over 15.2 hands as I am tall (around 170cm)

Happy to be alone or in company on trail rides (ie no separation anxiety)

Suited for endurance, but also happy to dabble in adult riding club events and other things (ie arena work, round yard work, small jumps just for fun while riding etc). But also with suitability/potential to increase in workload if desired (ie 80km endurance rides).

A horse with a great conformation (straight legs, no previous tendon injuries) that will tolerate a workload well as well as enjoy the endurance side of things (ie not too lazy)

Riding Ambitions:

– Endurance riding (20km initially) with hopes to increase to 40km and 80km
– Adult riding club events (clinics)
– Trail riding alone / or in groups – w/ heavy focus on trotting for endurance training
– Learning to overall be a good rider with a good solid seat / balance with an improved skill level over time

Endurance focus
Notes:

1/2 horse in nsw passed the vet to an acceptable level and pippa has transferred the money

25/1 booked a vetting for the horse in NSW that pippa tried. Vetting is booked for 31st jan

9/1 followed up on one for pippa, sounds really promising, She is going to view it on thursday and take for a ride.

6/1 spoke to pippa on the phone, small animal vet, keeps her horses on agistment. Sending me videos of her riding tomorrow.

She sent me a horse I have followed up on, going to send the owner the video as owner seems pretty switched on and go from there.

24/12 finally heard back from pippa who has been to busy to call back. have sent her happy xmas message and will email her the ebook now.

Rode (competitively at PC and HOTY/ official dressage) from age 8 to 18, and from 13 – 18 worked at a riding school, taking trail rides and eventually teaching lessons (flat and jumping).

After a few years break I started riding again at 30 (6 years ago). My last three horses have been young/straight from the breakers.

Dream Horse:

Seeking a reliable horse to compete in dressage and showing, hopefully something I can also take to the occasional adult riding club rally or beach ride. While I am competent to handle young horses and acrobatics under saddle, my preference would be not to have to as my confidence has taken a hit! Horse still needs to be in front of the leg and suited for state HOTY level showing and should at a minimum be training novice dressage. Non spooky (within reason!)
While size set 15hh – 16.1hh, would consider an outstanding large galloway.

Riding Ambitions:

Over the next 3-5 years I would like to continue showing, and progress a horse to Elementary dressage as well as re-gain some of the joy in trail riding/riding outside an arena!

Some schooling would be an asset. Possibly prefer gelding, although open to a good natured mare.

Riding Ambitions:

I would like to be able to ride a few times per week, trail riding, ARC, low level dressage and maybe a little bit of jumping. I am keen to build on m riding skills so would like to try lots of different things.

All rounder, sweet natured, pretty

Rider Level: Novice

Riding History:

I grew up with horses, learning to ride at age 5 and competing my ponies mainly on the flat in the show ring, a little jumping and pony club. Growing up on a big property we did however do everything, including jumping bareback, mounted games etc! I’m now 32yo and getting back in the saddle after 15 years off. I’ve been having weekly lessons since November 2021, on a 16.2hh WB dressage schoolmaster who can be a bit lazy/ behind the leg but I can push him along into an active trot. I can steer, trot and canter in small circles in the arena, plus ride out on (mostly flat) trails. I’ve also ridden a variety of different horses over the past month, including a few quiet OTTB and bigger ponies. I’m 157cm and 49 kg so hopefully that helps with options!

Dream Horse:

Kind, quiet and fuss-free! Easy to handle on the ground, c/s/f is a must. Must be happy to be ridden once a week, occasionally up to three times, but very even-tempered so doesn’t require consistent work. Ideally, established paces on the flat and happy to be ridden mainly in the arena, also out on the trail with friends or solo.

Riding Ambitions:

Well 32yo me is very different to 12yo me! Right now, I’m looking for a pleasure horse that is happy to be ridden mostly in the arena on the flat and out on the trails occasionally, with other hoses or solo. I wish to continue my own lessons so a horse/ bigger pony that is happy to be ridden in the arena, trotting and cantering (a lot!) in circles. My riding school has a dressage focus, so something very low-level here too would be nice but I have no desire to compete! Just to ride out calmly and enjoy having a horse again!

Pleasure; Schoolmaster
Notes:

3/2 alice found a horse which has been vetted but not through MMR

Dream Horse:

I am 6ft and 95kg, professional busy mum.

I am after a gentle giant, that would be called bomb proof. Does not spook, a horse that has been there and done that and well trained, and a horse looking to be well loved and to become part of my family.

A horse my 10 yo daughter would feel confident around and could jump on at times (she is having lessons at present and I will get her a horse in next 6-12 months).

Ideally a Clydesdale cross that is bigger than 16H, and has no health issues.

The horse has to have no problems with farriers, dentists, floating, being retrieved from paddocks etc.

Riding Ambitions:

I am seeking a pleasure and trail riding horse. I will continue doing riding lessons on this horse for a while. I found an excellent full-care agistment place that I plan to keep the horse at (where my 10yo does her riding lessons).

Notes:

Had to refund $350 as she found her own quickly.

But given I have not ridden much in the last year (due to having a baby 4 months ago) I need something that is quiet and and is not going to knock my confidence getting back into riding.

Dream Horse:

I am on the look out for an quiet allrounder t to plod around the farm/ trail ride ( solo and in company) for a while but then I might look at getting into ARC. Not looking for a serious jumper, just lower level dressage and popping over a few small fences here and there.
The horse must be easy to float and handle on the ground and no kick, bolt, buck or bite.
The horse may be paddocked alone for periods of time so must also be ok with this.

Riding Ambitions:

Trail riding – alone and in company
Adult Riding Club
Dressage
Popping over a few small fences

Riding History:

The horse is for my daughter Charlie who is 14 and has been riding for 18 months. She currently has a coach (Angela Hays- Karelia Riding) and has been with Angela for 9 months. She is leaning basic dressage, jumping and horse care. She has attended four camps with this riding school including dressage and show jumping.
Charlie is a beginner who is growing in confidence and skills. She has owned a horse for 6 months but it was put down due to a spinal injury as a result of a neighbour’s horse kicking it. Charlie has anxiety and PTSD from family long term illness. While not an anxious rider she is sometimes unsure. She can catch and put on saddle and bridle independently.

Charlie needs a schoolmaster. Well educated and forgiving and eager to please. Charlie doesn’t want problems to fix as she hasn’t got the skills. She needs a confidence booster.

She prefers a gelding but open to an exception mare if not moody.

I can walk/trot/canter independently but not overly refined (the last two years is the first time I have ever ridden in an arena or had lessons).
I am not a nervous rider but I need a sensible / reliable horse.

Primarily has to be a pleasure to have around with excellent ground manners and who likes attention from the whole family.
Good to c/s/f
I have my daughters 16 year old pony (mare) on the property, so would have to be a horse that doesn’t get separation anxiety if he was to be taken out by himself.
If we were to go out on the trails together I would need a horse that is happy to lead and is calm and sensible.
I like Standard Breeds as one of my favourites growing up was a Standy.

Asking Price: to 15000

Rider Level: Novice, Intermediate
Location: New South Wales
Riding History:

I am a novice/intermediate rider, at a novice dressage level but fairly new to jumping. Have had many lessons on fairly green OTTBs. I am a capable rider but do occasionally get nervous, so I need a horse who won’t take advantage of that or misinterpret it for excitement.

Dream Horse:

– 15.1-16.1hh
– Basic laterals established, with balanced and adjustable paces
– Calm and confident over jumps/obstacles
– Good in traffic, in water, and on trails
– No hard keepers, must have good legs and feet
– NO soundness issues
– NO bite, kick, rear, buck, bolt, etc. Must be good to float and for the farrier.
– Quiet and willing undersaddle (forward is fine, but not hot, spooky, or overly sensitive)

My perfect horse would be 8-10yrs, 15.2/15.3hh, Elementary trained and comfortable eventing up to 1m. They would also have a comfortable trot/canter.
I adore arabians, brumbies, and morgans but am open to any breed. Pure TBs are not ideal but if they have good conformation and sturdy legs and feet I will definitely consider them as well.
Greys, cream dilutes, tobianos, flaxen chestnuts, and unusual colours are also a bonus.
Soundness and personality are the most important things as I want to keep this horse for the rest of their life.
I have a budget up to 12k.

Riding Ambitions:

Wanting a horse for equal parts novice/elementary dressage, low-level (EvA) eventing, and trail riding, along with the occasional bareback ride and liberty work. Doesn’t need to be super competitive, just safe and responsive as I plan to compete more for fun and self-improvement than to win ribbons.

Notes:

11/4 – alex sent WB at shory park. her local riding school is closing down so she is considering her options there also.

21/3 alex been sent multiple options, just not quite there yet.

28/2 sent alex a message saying we will chase footage of huntley. Told her following up on a few options.

Riding History:

I am a confident beginner rider. Nearly 12 years old. I have been having weekly arena lessons with an instructor at Acheron Hill Horseriding for about 6 months but with a few breaks for lockdowns and summer holidays. Also done a one-day clinic at Avoca Park. I have ridden a few different school ponies, and friends horses and horses I’ve trialled but haven’t been right for me . I can walk, trot, canter, have done poles and small jumps in the arena (up to 50cm). Have had a few paddock rides on friends horses and one short trail ride.
I have done some groundwork with the horse and 3 ponies my family owns.

Dream Horse:

Australian Stockhorse around 15hh quiet and friendly to handle, confident trail riding in the bush and safe for a beginner around sheep and cattle and motorbikes. I would prefer a black but burnt buckskin and chestnut are also some of my favourite colours.
Horse will be paddocked with others on our farm and have a good life, but not a show home.

Riding Ambitions:

Keep learning to ride. Ride my horse around our farm by myself, go trail riding with other people. maybe try polocrosse or campdrafting.

Asking Price: to 20000
Sex: Gelding
Rider Level: Advanced
Location: Tasmania
Riding History:

I have been riding off and on since I was 10. I had my own pony/horse until I was 18 and then went to college, got married, had children etc. I started riding again in my early 30s and since then have always had my own horse. In the last 10 or so years I have been having regular dressage lessons with a qualified instructor.

Dream Horse:

I am looking for a horse to do some low level dressage on – up to elementary is ideal – as well as trail riding. The breed is not as important as temperament – I want a willing, calm and experienced horse who is not over-reactive to different situations. A horse that has had lots of exposure to different situations is ideal.

Riding Ambitions:

I would like to compete for fun in some low level local dressage competitions as well as to trail ride in the bush and on the beach with my husband. Mostly my ambition is to keep riding safely for as long as possible (I am 69 this year) and to continue with my regular dressage/flat lessons.

Dressage
Notes:

21/3 – been sent multiple options. Chasing footage of the queenstown horse for her.

28/2 found alison a horse in yass, nsw which may suit pending the outcome of another viewing today.

21/2 spoken with alison, asked her to set up a watts ap, it was just via text last time. 15-16hh elementary level dressage.

Riding Ambitions:

No competitions at this stage. Jacinta would like to use horse for her current lessons at Jolong Park and Pony Club (at Jolong Park). Would like to be able to do trail rides (in groups) and ride in arena with other horses. Has enjoyed low level jumps, so would like to do a bit more of that.

Asking Price: 15000 to 1000
Sex: Gelding, Mare
Rider Level: Novice, Intermediate
Location: South Australia
Riding History:

I am in my late 40s & from the UK and grew up riding. My mum ran a riding school so I had my own ponies, two older smaller ponies and then I had a 13.2hh 6yr gelding Sparky and we grew up together, pony club, hunting, and show jumping at shows and winning lots of rosettes. All my ponies were honest, a bit naughty from time to time but genuine. I had a particular bond with Sparky – we trusted each other and he rarely put a foot wrong. He was especially precious as my parents were divorced, he was my therapy. I then had a mare who was lovely. In the end we sold her when I hit my late teens and didn’t have the time to commit due to exams. It was heart wrenching. I then went to University etc. I’ve since ridden every opportunity I’ve had – friend’s horses, riding holidays. When we first arrived in Australia I leased a 19yr schoolmaster eventer who was awesome. I did dressage lessons and trail rode him. I leased him fir about 6mths until I got pregnant. In the last two years I have been having pole clinics with an instructor on school horses. I started riding a young warmblood who I fell in love with and was going to buy him but he turned out be really green on our first trail ride (very looky with rearing) and we had a nasty accident. This was late November 2021. Long story short – Wrong horse, wrong time, wrong place. Also I do think the instructor / seller mismatched was more interested in selling him rather than working out if he was the best fit for me. Regardless of that I consider myself a competent, confident rider but probably a bit green from missing so many years of adult riding.

Dream Horse:

Just the usual unicorn!! I’m 165cm & around 62kg so around 15.2hh, 10yrs+, experienced, honest, genuine. Enjoys fun solo trail rides and competent jumper. Nicely put together, absolutely no rear, buck, bite or bolt. Easy to handle and no vices. Forward going, not a plodder but not a loose cannon either. If I had to choose I’d say more whoa than go but I don’t want to have to push it forward constantly.
I like a bouncy horse rather than my lolapy one (if you know what I mean!). The bond is really important to me and the feeling that we’re a partnership/have each other’s backs .

Riding Ambitions:

In the first instance, trail riding, trips to beach, clinics with an instructor, then maybe look at show jumping/eventing or hunting. No set ambitions really other than to really enjoy trail riding. I really dislike dressage and only school by necessity.

Notes:

11/5 sally asked to pause the search

Notes:

21/4 – maggie is back on the search. Horse may stay with her instructor initially to cement the bond.

29/3 – Had a chat to Maggie on the phone. Located Bass coast, near phillip island, search area is a 4 hr drive from her home location. Limited to viewing on weekends and the occasional wednesday. Maggie has been looking for over a year now. Maggie has multiple sclerosis leading her to have balance issues on the ground and also when trotting. she requires a horse that is clam when she looses her balance and does not react. Her budget if firm at $5000 or $6500 if includes tack and gear. Explained difficult within her budget and may need to look at older horses. Ideally 16-17 would be her max ut will consider older. Maggie is 165cms and 70 kilos, doesnt feel great on 15hh, ideally 16hh and no upwards limit, 17hh is fine.
Horse will be kept on agistment 5 mins from her house. Its a quiet agistment with a max of 9 horses for trail riding. Windsuckers may not be welcome at her agistment. MUST BE A GELDING which is able to be paddocked with one or two other geldings.
Currently having lessons in warragul sporadically. Maggie has lost her confidence, especially on the ground after being bucked off by a TB. She had her friends horse on loan last year succcessfully and has owned horses in the past. Horse must love cuddles and be her friend. Will just be used for trail riding on own and with others, maybe some very low level arc. Will need to be floated to trails so must float well.

28/3 – called maggie and left a messge. Sent her an invite to join watts ap. Sent welcome email with ebook.

22/4 spoke with corinne, we are searching for Sienna her daughter. Grew up riding the negihbours horses and light trail riding. Moved to jolong over lockdown and sienna loves jumping and want to start eventing. will be starting at grade 5. This horse is a stepping stone, must be super schoolmaster for grades 5, 4 and 3.
sienaa can be quite anxious and will probably need to try the horse twice. Prefer gelding but will look at mares. Can send chestnuts although not the ideal. No older than 15/16.
Mother corinne (pronounced corin) can ride and trys the horses before her daughter gets oon. Videos posted are current. Idela location out melbourne suburbs and towards gippsland but will consider more for the right unicorn, no sight unseen.
