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.

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

7/2 sent leah a hello message, checking to see if she wants to expand her parameters at all.

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!
20/1o leah decided she liked utopia performance horse. Sadly to slow to call and horse was sold. Means we can look at over 15hh. She liked the type

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

I rode when I was little (PC) and then a significant break. I had a standy that I rescued as my first horse back. I have since had a Welsh x ARP and ride quite often on my property (covid) I have been to several ARC rallies and a few shows.

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

oct 12 – sent Sue a lovely QH but she was worried about soundness. Would have been perfect but alas the hunt continues. Would prefer to view in person.
Spoke to Sue 11/10 Located in Bendigo, happy to look anywhere in vic. Not so much other states as important she rides the horse before purchase.
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.

Riding History:

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.

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.

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.

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!

Dream Horse:

My dream would ideally be a very sweet natured pretty horse who loves his/her people.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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:

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.

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.

Dream Horse:

Gus Pony

-12.2H to 14.2H
-Gelding preferred but not a deal breaker a non-marey mare considered
Over ten preferred aged fine

Proven mustering and pony club pony for a seven year old boy. Who has ridden independently since he was 5 and loves the canter command. Has messy unbalanced hands that we will work on over the next year. Attended two jamborees under seven jumps E grade 45cm currently rides a 12H 22 year old grey with cushings and cancer who is just starting to get over the canter command and knocking up mustering in the hills.

I’m looking for the first ridden with the gears of 2nd ridden a educated patient schoolmaster with a big default stop.
One he can love on the ground and mum tightens the girth so easy to do anything with. The fun one mum doesn’t look back when we are crossing a river or legs him up to go out in the bareback at pony club.

We live on a 10,000 acre cattle station, ponies are ridden out mustering most weekends they muster 200 head of cattle at a time and see deers, pigs, kangaroos in hill terrain. So no shy or nervous behaviour and nothing strong behind cattle. Arena ponies won’t work for us.

Horses are kept shod, rugged and fully body clipped in spring ready for the pony club season from September to January. It gets down to -10 here so they are normally fluffy by July. They can run alone or in company whatever they prefer they are paddocked at my back fence checked daily but not stabled.

Not matey and ties up to the float all day.

Happy to cop someone running up the back of them at pony club, goes to sleep in troop line, teams of four experience a bonus.

Safe if not ridden all the time he gets busy playing footy in winter. Mum is horsey happy to lunge or canter out on a Friday before competition but absolutely no dirt tolerated.

Aged is fine experienced home in keeping the greats going. Including corrective shoeing, cushings. As long as price reflects this.

This pony will do its days out in my family many nieces and nephews to take over. In it’s twilight years can be used as a leadline forever.

Would love to ride before we buy but have brought sight unseen before with success. This horse won’t be advertised and we will have to convince the owners we will love him forever which I can do. Can provide references and videos in need. Have one in my paddock for my nine year old girl just need one more …the elusive unicorn!

Budget will reflect proven videos. Up to $15,000

Colour, looks not fussy safety is the most important just don’t like arabs otherwise open to them all.

Not in a rush understand this could take us a while to find. I’ve looked and brought twice and got it wrong so thought I would ask a pro😊

Riding Ambitions:

See above

Notes:

27/5 Mother Eliza, very horsey and experienced. Will jump on anything around 13hh and give it a go. Angus the kid has just turned 7. Eliza says the videos whichare 6 months old make him look better than he is. the two poinies she has bought have been too much for him and really exposed hes not ready for that second pony type pony. The dream height is 13-13.2h. Realistically unless a uncicorn 14 hh to big.
Happy any age. If under $10,000 would consider sight unseen. If over must be within 5 hour radius of glen innes (4 hours from brisbane).

Riding History:

For my daughter charli: attended All things brumby school from the age of 7, was incredibly confidant and happy with riding, then we made the mistake of buying our first horse (a stock horse x qtr horse mare) who was a horrible turd! She would roll when ever charli tried to ride her, constantly bite her and push her around and finally kept trying to kick her. After that charli’s confidence was non existent (we should of sold her way before we did). We then brought our current qtr horse mare Ruby, who is mega sweet and wonderful but doesn’t like jumping and about 6 months ago started reversing when charli tried to jump her. Unfortunately charlis confidence is now not great! She has jumped to 60cm and want to go higher, however with Ruby’s aversion to jumping (and puddles) it’s made it very hard to progress

Dream Horse:

15-16hh, don’t care about the breed, would prefer something a bit chunky.
Sensible, safe, confidence builder.
Happy doing anything particularly pony club and low level eventing/jumping.
Want something that’s been there done everything and not spooky! Prefer a gelding.
Charli gets anxiety so something that won’t be stressed if charli is (we are hoping this will reduce as her confidence builds!)

Riding Ambitions:

Eventing (dressage, jumping and XC)
Trail rides
Pony club (confidently)
Mucking about and going for a canter across a paddock

Notes:

spoke to kate 30/5. Based in ballarat and happy to view anywhere in VIC (potentially nsw as well).
Show her up to $12000 but really only has $10.000 to spend. Charli would prefer a stocky/chunky horse with jumping experience that is forward off the leg. Charli is 14. Kate doesnt want anything over 16hh and gelding is ideal.

Always had a bombproof 15.2 Appaloosa and he was old I had him until he passed then had four years off riding and got another near bombproof standardbred who has taught me lots and I’m now looking to retire him after I’ve had him for 6 months and he has shown me the ropes of getting back into riding! I enjoy trail riding, the odd stockmans challenge, riding out alone and hunts every now and then.

Dream Horse:

Coloured if possible, Or anything that looks a little quirky is what I love! But super quiet, forgiving and safe. Something anyone could jump on and isn’t matey at all. Something suitable that in a hunt if I decided to hold back he would be okay with a group running off from him. Prefer a gelding but non marey mares are okay too! Must be good on farms! Exposed to everything. An absolute been there done that type with absolutely no buck bolt or bite and no spook or look!

Riding Ambitions:

To keep going at what I’m doing which is trailing out by myself and taking my new horse to the beach, hunts, trails and horsemanship clinics.

Riding History:

Most of my riding was approx 15 years ago when I worked for Wandin Riding Academy working horses and teaching children to ride. More recently I ride my daughters riding ponies (but they are too small for me. I have owned horses for most of my life from Welsh ponies, Standard Breds to Thoroughbreds – I’m fine with the horse having some quirks.

Dream Horse:

My dream horse will be quiet, reliable and do some dressage at home with me (really would like the horse to already work in a frame). This horse would be quiet enough to put my teenage daughter on (lunge if required) and be more whoa than go (preferably but not essential). The horse will need to put up with a little bit of imbalance while I get my muscles back.

Riding Ambitions:

I would like to do some dressage at home (undercover arena) and riding around our farm. Maybe some low level ARC or pony club. To be honest I hoping this horse builds my daughters confidence (and she ‘steals it off me’). I’m happy for the horse not to be ‘perfect’ and have some quirks.

Notes:

2/6 – Kerry struggles to reply to a lot of messages when horses sent. has been sent a nice WB within budget. just got back from holiday, horse needs to be safe for young teenage daughters to ride.

7/3/23 – sent multiple horses, replays to some and not others

horse must be over 15hh – 16hh wouldn’t consider smaller, have sent previously but they are all tall

MUST be suitable for her novice teens to move onto and ride at times

open to age, Sex and breed. happy with a nice TB

BUDGET can now go to 10K

Current issue: Flooding

20/6 – emailed kerry, will call tomorrow

21/6 spoke with Kerry. Budget is firm at $7500. They are based on a farm in swan hill. Really limited on viewing time as she works full time and has three teenage kids. Horse is primarily for her 15 year old daughter who is a bit timid with the horses. Kerry will also ride this horse and keep it for herself if the daughter looses interest. Number one priority is quiet. Would love something that works in a frame but not a deal breaker.
Kerry very keen to go to Shory Park and try som eORTT’s/HRV horses and see if theres anything she likes. Needs to be more woah than go. Happy to purchase something with quirks on the ground. Will purchase sight unseen for the right unicorn. Just using for dressage. they have their own indoor arena so primarily will be ridden in there. 15-16hh, any breed. hubby not keen on anything over 12 but slight room for manovere here.

Location: Victoria
Riding History:

Open and HRCAV Showing and dressage 20+ years. Competed up to Royal/HOTY level. Competent rider, but presently lacking confidence.

Dream Horse:

WB or WB x
Open to other cross breeds but would need to show quality for HRCAV level 2+ Show/dressage Prefer some bling.
Prefer aged 8-16 but can be open minded for an exceptionally good unicorn at an older age.
Ideally 15.2+ (last horse was 17.1 so big is not an issue)
Must be quiet to handle on the ground and under saddle – no spook (this is non negotiable) or other undesirable behaviours. Easy to float, clip, wash, rug, stable, tie up etc (all the unicorn traits)
Nothing green, or requiring a confident rider. Ideally with a solid performance history, competing novice and above. Must be safe enough to not need to be ridden every day (I travel a lot for work so must be able to cope with 2-3 days work at times)
Gelding preferred
Absolute dream is a palomino 🙂
Budget up to $30k (but prefer 20-25k)

Riding Ambitions:

Main focus is showing and dressage, but something that would kindly pop around 60-80cm SJ/XC would be a bonus so I could broaden my horizons a little bit (but not essential)
Must be happy and safe to go out on trail rides.

Riding History:

We are serching for my daughter’s first horse. Georgia has been riding school ponies for 7 years. Currently she’s riding once a week at Wallington Park Equestrain centre. When riding the schoolies Georgia is an intermediate rider and has a good understanding of horses. The class is jumping 20-45cm but she has jumped up to 75cm in the past. She has been taught basic dressage and has done a few tests within the school. They also do an hour of theory each week to learn about caring for horses. She would now like to move forward to do pony club and eventing and therefore needs to move onto her own horse

Dream Horse:

We would like a well behaived quiet horse that is willing to please. One that can jump and has been to Pony Club and Events. Preferably something from the age of 8-15yo. 14.2h to 15.3h would suit Georgia best. No nasties or unhealthy habbits, an easy keeper (as in food) would be nice but we’re not too fussy about that

Riding Ambitions:

Georgia would like to attend pony club and events. She would like to jump more consistently and higher (80cm to 100cm eventually). Wants to improve on dressage, jumping and possibly a little bit of cross country.

safe, calm,
Notes:

sent ebook and welcome email 7/8. spoke with Debra on the phone 8/8. they are currently living in highton/geelong. horse will be kept in inverleigh until somewhere closer to home has availability. georgia 13 wants to join PC and do lots of jumping. Grade 5/4 unicorn . No room to move on $5000, that the absolute max. Can be a mare or gelding, 14.2-15.2. Can be aged but they looked at one recently who was 20 and decided that this was too old. they have been trying TB’s as thats what has been available within their price range. can view weekends or weekdays after 4.30pm.

Our instructors have recommended a gelding no younger than ~ 8 years old. As new horse owners (with intent to utilise Jolong facilities and care until we know what we’re doing), we’d like a horse that is gentle and currently in work. Ivy is ‘the animal whisperer’ in our family (the chook, dog, cat & cockatiel all love her).

Ivy would like to ride in Interschools and is particularly interested in show jumping. Ivy is also interested in dressage and would like to attend Pony Club.

I am looking for a quite 16hh or taller, must be sound on trails and used to noise, other animals and children. I would prefer a stocky or WB but open to TB if it was bombproof. Ideally a buckskin but I know how hard they are to come by. So colour doesn’t matter, just preferably not chesnut. Gelding over mare.

Riding Ambitions:

I want to continue learning different disciplines and have a pleasure horse that could come along as I learn. Most importantly I want a sound trail partner who I can take to the national parks near me

Riding History:

I am a 66 yo and have not ridden in over 30 years. Wanting to get back into it. Previously grew up with horses but I was never interested in the show ring. My sister owns Chalani Australian Stock horse stud in SA and I rode as a teenager with a small amount of pony club, a few clinics and mainly pleasure riding. Cousin is Dr Kerry Mack Grand Prix dressage and owner of Mayfield Farm in Whittlesea. I bred my 4 horses but last one passed in 2009.

Dream Horse:

I am after 2 horses.
1) Horse for myself between 15-16.2. Absolutely no vices. Must be safe to ride on own or in a group. Good ground manners. Well conformed and sound – no windsucking or fence walking. Responsive and happy to go over occasional jumps on the trail. Don’t mind mare or gelding . If a mare not marey. My preference is for Buckskin, palomino or paint but will consider anything that fits the bill.
2) A quiet horse I can lead on the trail with my daughter or husband. He is a total beginner she has had some riding lessons. Happy to look at Quarter horse or Thoroughbred cross, or Aust Stock horse or Heritage horse. for both horses. 2nd horse 14.2 – 16h.

Riding Ambitions:

I have done a substantial amount of trail riding esp in the high country and this is what I want to get back into. I have bought 10 acres in Cherokee (base of Mt Macedon) but am there on weekends only till I retire. Horse will NOT be in regular work so must be able to hop on and ride preferably without lunging first. Nice comfortable ride over all paces, soft mouth, willing but no bolt buck, kick or shy. I will be joining the Kyneton Trail riding group and possibly an Adult riding club in Gisborne. Will take a few lessons to brush up skills and see how the body holds up!

Notes:

emailed 4/9

5/9 – anita has not touched ahorse in 30 years. Ive told her we will help her try and find somewhere close to macedon to ride and get back in the saddlre.
Will look anywhere for ahorse but ideally no more than 3 hours radius – can only look sat afternoon though till tues morning. Ideally $5000 per horse but can stretch to
$7500/$8000 if perfect. True beginner trail riding types. For horse 2 husband will be on the lead rein, hes a big guy so 15.2 minimum.

Eventing to 1* in a past life.
Have represented Tassie in Eventing, ShowJumping and Showing. But never dressage.
So next venture is to find a Pony for dressage(that will cross over to showing and maybe the odd coloured pole and small brush fence.)

Dream Horse:

So looking for a mount that will do Pony dressage. The big horses in stressage are way too boingy for me.
I do like showing, so something with bling. I am fond of pintos(i have a kenlock Park jumping schoolmaster, who hates stressage and showing)
Prefer something going but not against a youngster under saddle if straight forward. Just can’t sit spooks and bucks like I used to, so nothing too quirky. I am a relatively brave rider but have bursitis in left hip, so no spooky Arabs or highly strung riding Ponies or uber wide Units.

Riding Ambitions:

Like to represent Tassie in the Pony Dressage state squad.
But obviously not aiming for Olympic level.
I like wine , shopping and holidays too much for that to happen😝🤣🐴

I have my dream horse but she is unsound. Looking for her replacement- pretty with eyecatching movement. Potential to get to medium level dressage. Forward moving but sane and not spooky. Easy to do anything with on ground or in saddle. No separation anxiety. 100% sound. Good to float.

Riding Ambitions:

I want to have a horse that could take me to medium level dressage. I want to learn flying changes. I want to win an open rider class at a show.

Notes:

emailed 4/9

5/9 spoke to fiona who sounds very competent and knowledgeable. She has four paddock horses that she has bought and are now unsound, even though they have had full vet checks.

She lives in grovedale and keeps her horses in connewarre. Would like to restrict the search to 2 hours radius of geelong. Maybe a little further for the right horse butdefinately no interstate travel.
Potential is what she is searching for, she knows that she cant get amedium level horse for $15,000 but she wants the horse with the potential to get there. 15.3-16.1 (2) at the maximum. Will be ridden properly 5-6 times a week including a once a week burn in the paddock so ideal scenario.
Tried some horses at Carhill /Tyson this weekend but they were not as described. She is open to straight OTT if the potential is there. Spooky horses make her nervous.

Had current horse for 7-8 years, currently grade 2/1 hrcav. he’s quirky, shies. and difficult to take out.
which is why she’d like something easier now
horse must be good on trails, be able to have a plod. has 300 acres out the back.

on 10 acres yarra valley, stables, loose boxes, equirope electric fencing, 10 acres.

Temperament number one.

Happy to look interstate but would rather Vic.
wind sucking not ideal but not a deal breaker. No separation anxiety, be able to tie up float.
hopefully something that is competitive down the track as well.

Riding History:

Started riding as 10yr old, lots of pony club, showing, state level PC dressage. Last horse was a thoroughbred owned him for 16 years. Ridden infrequently over last 20 years. Started back with regular weekly lessons at Jolong Park in last few months.

Dream Horse:

Prefer Gelding
Thoroughbred or warm blood/mix
Sensible
Good to handle
Potential ARC mount/dressage
Likes a trail ride
My last horse was like a dog, very smoochy so this would be a plus but not essential haha

Riding Ambitions:

Firstly to be riding fit, with regular riding and lessons
Would like to join ARC
possible dressage competition down the track

Notes:

Michele has recently signed back up. We found her a quiet OTT from Lou Abbey and he has not settled into the busy life at Jolong. So she is now wanting an educated schoolmaster. VERY quiet and proven off property – something older fine. She will be ok if it doesn’t vet perfectly I think. Just need great easy nature – especially at Jolong as its a mad house!

Budget around $25-30K
Approx 15.2-16.2
Dressage focus but starting from rusty 😂, ARC, clinics etc. Not interested in jumping
Needs to be pretty unflappable & easy to take offsite. No spook (can’t handle it)
No thoroughbreds (maybe mix)
Needs to be able to handle Jolong Park (for now)
Nikki, I am still struggling to rehome Serge, no takers with Lou’s ad. I’m paying instructors at JP to keep him in work 3 days a week starting yesterday (he hadn’t been ridden in 6 weeks) Have you got any ideas?
Thanks
Michele

Riding History:

I started riding from scratch 2 years ago and fell in love with it. I am working on EA Prelim dressage A test and have scored 61% for 2 tests so far so I am still working on basic skills such as maintaining contact and developing my seat. I have also taken part in 2 jumping shows at 50cm and managed a clear round for each of the them. At the moment I have lessons 3-4 times a week, 3 flat lessons and 1 jumping/poles lesson.. My new horse would be agisted on my instructor’s property so there will be someone to help me with lessons and general care.

Dream Horse:

A gentle, reiiable easy going horse that enjoys dressage (and possibly a bit of low level jumping. I’m looking for a kind and friendly soul mate that would stay with me forever. He/she should be around 15 hands to 15.2 hands (My hight is 5ft 2 so a smaller horse would suit).

Riding Ambitions:

I want to progress from the preliminary level to Elementary or even much later Medium dressage level. I have a long way to go. But hopefully with hard work that can happen.
I have ticked the Beginner level box below – I’m not a total beginner somewhere between beginner/novice level.

Prefer a gelding but would consider a reliable mare
Notes:

25/1 – vetting a horse Friday that we found.

3/1 – seeing horse at end of week for second ride

used to ride in singapore but started October 2020 from scratch, learning ‘proper’ dressage. currently riding 16hh warmblood x welsh. Riding with Janet Wheeler.
– Happy to look out side of 15.2hh up to 16/16.1hh wont rule out a well schooled horse if not in 15hh range.
– 15,000 horse alone, maybe a bit of wiggle room.
– doesnt really want to go beyond 15yo.
– no bolting, no bucking, no rearing.
– prefer Vic, only.
– good to take out, good to float, easy on the ground.
– wants to know why horses are for sale (coach asked her to ask).
– Will stretch budget for the right horse.

Able to just get out of paddock and ride. Ideally for trails and paddock riding.

Notes:

7/3/23 – tried bruce,didn’t like.
went to see barbie but they had booked two in one day viewing so she canned it

15/2/23 – booked to see Bruce with Chloe Harris on the weekend

3/1 – ? Seeing cinnamon in Colac and maybe donkey as well. ADDIT – 25/1 she has been given contact numbers to go see both horses to arrange viewings as that is the request of owners

21/12 – will see cinnamon in Colac post the new year. located Colac

having a couple of rides back during the Christmas period

Richelle lives in Bannockburn, this was a gift from her husband for her birthday. they are moving to Colac in January. She can’t really purchase until Jan as she will be an hour + from her horse. She has two little kids.
rode as a child / teen but hasn’t for many years.
described herself as a straight out beginner she said she would barley get out of a walk if she did go to try something. my suggstion to her was go on some trail rides between now and Christmas ( spring creek)
or alternately go for a few rides on her sisters horse.
she really needs some hours back in the saddle.

upon discussing application I told her that $5K will struggle to get a true beginners horse, she may have a small amount of flex in that to 6.5 ish

she would prefer bin the 14hh mark – 15hh
she’s not very tall herself. happy to purchase an older horse her last horse was 18 when she bought it so okay with this.
her sister will assist with viewings as I said if you are only able to walk you will need to be able to have someone else also ride.

doesn’t mind mare or gelding

happy to travel all over vic and ? maybe lower NSW Wagga area / or border SA.

Only been at current riding school for a couple of months.
In past cantering off lead but not often.
Mother not horsey, both first timers.
– Seymore, on 25acres and already have other horse on property. Confident with caring for horses just new to riding.

Have purchased 2 horses in the past, second horse paid 7k was scammed and now have paddock ornament.
Other ‘beginner’ pony they bought kept bucking her off, so are very nervous about getting it right now.
Lee way to budget but super warry.

pony club 300m off thier st.
Really wants to do pony club, jumping/eventing. trail ride around the farm.

Feel comfortable at 10k if its everything they want.
Needs to be super quite with no sillies.

13yo about 170cm.

Happy to spend less (5k) and get an older horse that they have for 2/3 years, would prefer that then spend 10/15k on a horse that shes going to out grow in 2/3 years.

No max age also happy to look at young, super open minded..

everything shes been on around 16hh has been flighty so being that high does worry her, happy to look aroun 15.3/16hh if super quiet.

not too forward, no bucking or rearing but apparently gutsy if feels safe.
More woah then go but dont want something that wont move when she kicks.

No interstate, have to be absolute unicorn to travel more then 2/3 hours, For the perfect horse will drive more.

Doesn’t have to have competition experience and doesn’t want to pay the extra $$$$$ for a horse due to competition experience etc, wants something cheaper that has just been training these disciples or going to pony club.

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

I had 6 months of riding lessons when I was 8, then intermittently going to day camps and trail rides until I started lessons again at 13, after 1 year I leased a tb gelding and was left to my own devices so I didn’t progress, I then ended the lease after 9 months and bought a paint mare and agitated at a place with an on site coach and had regular lessons on my mare, but I progressed too quickly and she was getting old and wanting to slow down, so I moved her on. Now I am looking fo my next horse. I am not a nervous rider, I can handle bolts and kicks, but it would be better to not have a horse that acts up like that.

Dream Horse:

My dream horse would have a big, goofy personality with a positive, willing attitude to ridden work. The type that follows you around the paddock and just wants to be with you. Walk, trot, canter, established with a soft and supple way of going in the bridle. No vices, quirks are ok as long as they are not too much.
I would love a silver bay, lack and white (pinto or paint), dark bay, liver chestnut, or black, some chrome would be nice. The chunkier the better.

Riding Ambitions:

I would love to do a bit of everything, low level dressage, jumping, XC, trails, beach riding, go out to the occasional show. I’m not super competitive.

Rider Level: Novice, Intermediate
Location: South Australia
Riding History:

Grew up with my ponies and pony club from 12. Evented and hunted my 2 horses through 16- 30. Pleasure riding from 30-35. Break with kids 35-45 . Flat work, leisure riding 45-60 on my daughters horse and last 5 years on one of our racehorses. Always ridden thoroughbreds 15.3 -16.1

Dream Horse:

Gelding ( love chesnuts!) 15.3-16.1
Something I can just get on a ride without lunging etc. Must be educated and safe. No Shying buck kick etc. Possibly retired from mid level competing, so as long as sound and quiet for flat work, trail rides etc. I like having lessons and grid work but no more jumping for me. 🥲 Does not have to be a thoroughbred. Not interested in something that has only been schooled for a few months off the track. My ideal horse would be educated and bombproof!

Riding Ambitions:

My current horse is gorgeous, I love him to bits but he is anxious and a windsucker with ulcers when being worked. He needs lunging and ground work to settle before riding and I am getting too old to be doing this just for pleasure riding. He has SIJ issues from racing so if I work him to keep him settled he gets sore which is not fair on him. I would like to be able to do adult riding school/ classes and trail rides and generally just have some relaxed and fun safe riding around our property and at local clubs. Needs to be NOT in constant work to be calm although I usually like to ride 2-3 x a week when possible.
I will bring my current horse back in from spelling so am happy to wait to find the right horse. He will have a lovely home in the Adelaide Hills. Thank you for your help with my search.

Educated quiet safe gelding NO shying

Rider Level: Intermediate
Location: Victoria
Riding History:

I have always ridden but mostly pleasure and trail riding early on. It’s not until about 6 years ago that I got into doing HRCAV, lessons, clinics and competitions. I would consider myself an intermediate but nervous rider due to a fall I had when I was 15 where I broke my back and have never quite gotten over the nerves fully.

Dream Horse:

Ideally wanting a gelding bur would consider non-marey mares. 14-15hh would be ideal, can fit on ponies as small as 13.2hh as long as they are solid enough to take up my leg. Age of 7-14 ideally. Budget of 12k ideally, for something absolutely perfect I might be able to stretch an extra 1-2k but would prefer not to spend over 12k. Open to breed but no Standardbreds, TBs or Arabs. Would consider crosses of these. I would love a horse that looks good and moves well to be a bit competitive and that jumps nice and calmly and is confident out of trail rides and in new environments. Obviously safety comes above all, but for my budget I don’t want an absolute donkey. I need a horse that is ok to be ridden just 1-2 times a week without getting fresh and needing lunging before getting on. I need a horse who has the basics well established, they need to be able to travel in a frame, be balanced in all paces, get the correct canter lead etc. I do need a horse that will stand still and behave while tied up and that will float well (on a straight load float) as I travel most places alone, I really do need a safe, reliable, trustworthy and sound new best friend. I also need a horse located within 2 hours of Seymour as I have bulging discs in my back which makes long drives hard. I would only be available to view horses on weekends unless it’s very local (within 30 minutes of Seymour) I might be able to go a week night/day depending on my work schedule.

Riding Ambitions:

I want to continue to better my riding. I am wanting to work up the levels a bit in HRCAV, currently level 5 jumping and level 4 dressage/showing. Also wanting to enjoy some trail riding and obstacles.

Notes:

Vet checking horse on 8/3/23 – whitey of sam’s

I ride 3 times a week, like to ride at different places for experience. I have weekly lessons with 2 different instructors.

Dream Horse:

Easy going, easy to take out, good to C/S/F, no B/B.
Nothing silly or stupid. I am confident however if a horse starts going mental trying to throw me off I will jump off.
I am a bigger rider so need a chunkier horse to carry my weight.

Riding Ambitions:

I want to improve my riding ability through clinics, lessons and competing.

Brent Kelly is my farrier and he suggested I contact Nicky for some support through this process.

Riding History:

Began riding at 5, had lessons until I was 10 then had my own pony then horse until I was 20 doing PC, shows etc (up to grade 3). Worked briefly as a rider for a hunting stable & at a riding school in my 20’s. Had a XC fall & this put me out of riding for a while. Then came uni, business and kids & before I knew it years and years went past without horses! I’m now 42! After a huge break I started dressage lessons at the beginning of 2022. Bought a 16.3hh 5yo WB in late 2022 who has been too much horse for me & I haven’t enjoyed the big baby horse moments (he’s quite spooky). I’m completely devastated about my decision to sell him but we are not the right fit for each other. His green baby moments & nervousness has rattled my confidence with him & that’s not what he needs :’( I’m wanting to find a horse with some more miles & education. Something more proven & more of an allrounder I can feel safe on and on the ground with.

Dream Horse:

My dream horse would be around 16hh ish around 8 with an amazing smoochy temperament, plenty of exposure, a solid education on the flat. Beautiful ground manners. Happy & brave to enjoy ARC one day, a trail the next, dressage lessons, a dressage day here & there, clinics & low level jumping. A really fun, safe horse with ability & flash enough to do some low level comps. I enjoy learning more about dressage so lovely movement & working in a soft frame will suit what I prefer to ride. Not a kick along but not hot, the happy medium. Steady in the contact & not too heavy on the hands. Beautiful ground manners & used to busy environments (I’m at a very busy large agistment / riding school centre & I don’t want this to be an issue). A real best friend type that will be happy to be spoiled by myself & my family. I ride 4-5 x per week currently , but I’d definitely prefer a horse I don’t need to lunge down to get on.
My specific dealbreaker is spookiness, I don’t cope well with it. I have really struggled with this with my last horse on the ground & riding, a sideways jump or unpredictable behavior makes me uneasy. Since having kids this is something I can’t quite get used to! I guess it’s my quirk haha..
The other obvious is sound, vice free, easy for me to float & take out on my own 🙂
I am open to breed as long as quality type, I tend to gravitate towards WB , WB x TB, WB x, ISH , Anglo , ArabxWB etc. I’ve previously had 2 failed vet checks with OTTBs that I fell in love with so if TB must be sound & really special. If OTT must have a solid proven post racing education & exposure.

My budget is up to around $28k , I am happy to pay for the dream horse that will keep me safe.

I’ve had 3 of my own geldings & a lease gelding, strangely never had a mare, love geldings but open to a non-marey mare 🙂

Riding Ambitions:

HRCAV, clinics, weekly dressage lessons, dressage days, trails, low level jumps & potentially a little XC. Not going to the Olympics but this is what I’m hoping will be my dream horse after waiting many years for this, so something really special that I can adore would be fantastic.

Horse will be kept in 5 star full care agistment with endless love, coaching, body work & everything it could ever need.

Notes:

welcome email sent 27/4

13yo old girl.
Good little bush rider, not technically correct.
Loves pony club and wants to increase her show jumping and low level eventing, but still be able head out on the trail. This kid has had her share of “challenging” horses and we are looking for the perfect fit this time. Safe, something she can trust. 5* home in the yarra valley with other horses, we all ride as a family and the horse would be a part of the family. If someone is looking for a great home, this is it.

Dream Horse:

Stockhorse
15-15.3hh
Gelding
Been there done that, ready to guide the next young rider through. Wonderful Temperament a must. No nasties, buck, rear, kick bite etc. Prefer no greys, we are on red dirt. Prefer no TB.

Riding Ambitions:

Pony club, show jumping, eventing, trail
Ride. Rider is too young to teach a horse the ropes (SJ etc) , want something that knows the job.

Notes:

2/6/23 – Tahnee has gone and vet checked a horse that she made an offer on pre signing up to match my ride they initallly refused her offer but have now accepted it. We are just waiting too see how the vetting goes and will confirm if this is successful or not.

Haven’t been around horses full time since young years. Have been going to weekly lessons for over a year now to gain confidence back. Can handle on ground, tack up, walk , trot and care for horse. I’d almost say my riding skills are back at novice stage.

I would love to find my new best friend who is happy to look around farm, go on trail rides. Horse ideally to be cattle, dog and roo proof. Preferably a gelding around 14h , someone who loves affection and is super gentle on ground and under saddle. I would prefer no TB , have had bad experience and lost a lot of confidence.

Gain more confidence and eventually be able to gallop across the paddocks. My balance has come back so just love to keep working on that.

I am not after the blue ribbon in any event just a horse that will allow me to enjoy riding and competing again. The horse needs to be located in NSW and I will not buy with out riding the horse first. My budget is $20 but possible $25K

Riding History:

I have been riding all my life in showing and dressage. Now I am mainly focussed on dressage. I had a break while I had my children. Since then, I have been back riding for the past 10 years. Before I retired my horse, I was competing HRCAV L2 moving to L1. I am not 100% confident rider but gain confidence when I know the horse well. The last two horses have been quirky chestnut mares, so I can manage a few problems.
I have my own farm, with arena, stables and plenty of laneways to escape the arena. I have an angle load float. The other horses on the property include two retirees and a Shetland pony.

Dream Horse:

Age – 4yrs to 8yrs
Height – 15.2 to 16.2
Gelding or Mare
Budget $15k to $20
Breed – warmblood, warmblood cross. I will consider TB, if they have few typical bad TB traits, but it would have to be a above average TB. No STB
Ideally, I would like a horse whose experiences match its age. It must have a good laid-back attitude, as I do everything myself, loading, floating, tying up to the float etc. I don’t want anything that is super tense, hot or very forward moving.
Education: I am happy to do the education myself and work up the grades/levels as a team. Regardless of age, it must have a good correct start with the basics. Good transitions especially into canter. If its on the older side, leg yields and established lengthened trot & canter.
Experience: I would prefer something that has had competition experience or at least off property outings with regular lessons or rallies.
I would rather a young horse with a great attitude than an older horse who has been passed around owners. I want a horse that has genuine reason for sale, I not interest in someone else’s problem child.

Riding Ambitions:

I hope to buy a horse to have forever and to build a strong relationship with. I would like to continue regular lessons and compete regularly. Ideally have a horse at the same level as my riding or a little below, so that I can educate and we can move up the levels together.

No pre-existing medical conditions. Good to rug )no halter, float, clip catch. Something that just wants to be with his human. Get on and go type without having to lunge. Forward but not super sensitive, soft into contact. Mr Reliable.

Riding Ambitions:

I would like to continue competing arc; I don’t compete a lot. I have weekly dressage lessons, continue with pole work and low level jumping have tried a bit of 3pe would possibly like to continue this. Easy on the trails.

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

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.

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.
15/10 Nikki spoke to Olga, happy to go down to 15.2hh and stretch budget a touch if needed.

5/10 touched base with olga, she has been in difficult signal. any type suitable for beginner trail riding and multiple riders
4/10 tried calling and left a text messsage.

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!!

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.

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.

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

Riding History:

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:

Has not paid so moved to unsuccessful 7/11

Notes:

7/3/23 – going to see bruce Friday, and lolita Saturday

16/2/23 – recomenced search – having a phone call catch up

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.

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.

– She’s in metro and would like to ride (Can only go 15km from home). But has friends in regional or would be happy if we could view too. So VIC only. But happy for sight unseen if friend could possibly ride.

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

messaged 1/11 about ryder horse riding trails horses coming up for sale.
oct 24 – sent sue two posssibles unfortunately one in QLD would not sell sight unseen and the other QH was sold very quickly.

oct 22 – sent sue an endurance arab advertised in horse deals.
oct 12 – sent Sue a lovely QH but she was worried about soundness. Would have been perfect but alas the hunt continues. Would prefer to view in person.
Spoke to Sue 11/10 Located in Bendigo, happy to look anywhere in vic. Not so much other states as important she rides the horse before purchase.
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.

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.

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.

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.

Sex: Gelding, Mare
Rider Level: Beginner, Novice
Location: Victoria
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.

Rider Level: Novice
Location: Tasmania
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.

Location: Victoria
Riding History:

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.

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.

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.

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!

My dream would ideally be a very sweet natured pretty horse who loves his/her people.

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.

Sex: Gelding, Mare
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
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).

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

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.

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 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.

Riding Ambitions:

Charlie wants to work with horses for her life. She struggles with school as she is very dyslexic and suffers sensory overload. Charlie want to study equine therapy and also compete in dressage and other competitions. She wants to own her own property and use horses to help people to flourish as people and as riders.

Riding History:

I am 48, stopped riding when I had my son 15 years ago and started riding again in the last 2 years (interrupted by COVID).
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.

16/2 FINALLY spoke to alex, super hard to get hold of, tried koby at shory park, loved the paces and conformation but found him argumentive. 12,ooo budget

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:

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:

11/6 back on the search but only 2 hours radius from phillip island

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.

Gelding
8 years.

We also have a place in Gippsland so will sometimes trail ride there
Riding is a healthy passion

Notes:

11/6 bought a horse and successfully vet checked.
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.

21/4 sent a welcome email, will call her 22/4.

Dream Horse:

Gus Pony

-12.2H to 14.2H
-Gelding preferred but not a deal breaker a non-marey mare considered
Over ten preferred aged fine

Proven mustering and pony club pony for a seven year old boy. Who has ridden independently since he was 5 and loves the canter command. Has messy unbalanced hands that we will work on over the next year. Attended two jamborees under seven jumps E grade 45cm currently rides a 12H 22 year old grey with cushings and cancer who is just starting to get over the canter command and knocking up mustering in the hills.

I’m looking for the first ridden with the gears of 2nd ridden a educated patient schoolmaster with a big default stop.
One he can love on the ground and mum tightens the girth so easy to do anything with. The fun one mum doesn’t look back when we are crossing a river or legs him up to go out in the bareback at pony club.

We live on a 10,000 acre cattle station, ponies are ridden out mustering most weekends they muster 200 head of cattle at a time and see deers, pigs, kangaroos in hill terrain. So no shy or nervous behaviour and nothing strong behind cattle. Arena ponies won’t work for us.

Horses are kept shod, rugged and fully body clipped in spring ready for the pony club season from September to January. It gets down to -10 here so they are normally fluffy by July. They can run alone or in company whatever they prefer they are paddocked at my back fence checked daily but not stabled.

Not matey and ties up to the float all day.

Happy to cop someone running up the back of them at pony club, goes to sleep in troop line, teams of four experience a bonus.

Safe if not ridden all the time he gets busy playing footy in winter. Mum is horsey happy to lunge or canter out on a Friday before competition but absolutely no dirt tolerated.

Aged is fine experienced home in keeping the greats going. Including corrective shoeing, cushings. As long as price reflects this.

This pony will do its days out in my family many nieces and nephews to take over. In it’s twilight years can be used as a leadline forever.

Would love to ride before we buy but have brought sight unseen before with success. This horse won’t be advertised and we will have to convince the owners we will love him forever which I can do. Can provide references and videos in need. Have one in my paddock for my nine year old girl just need one more …the elusive unicorn!

Budget will reflect proven videos. Up to $15,000

Colour, looks not fussy safety is the most important just don’t like arabs otherwise open to them all.

Not in a rush understand this could take us a while to find. I’ve looked and brought twice and got it wrong so thought I would ask a pro😊

Riding Ambitions:

See above

Notes:

27/5 Mother Eliza, very horsey and experienced. Will jump on anything around 13hh and give it a go. Angus the kid has just turned 7. Eliza says the videos whichare 6 months old make him look better than he is. the two poinies she has bought have been too much for him and really exposed hes not ready for that second pony type pony. The dream height is 13-13.2h. Realistically unless a uncicorn 14 hh to big.
Happy any age. If under $10,000 would consider sight unseen. If over must be within 5 hour radius of glen innes (4 hours from brisbane).

Riding History:

For my daughter charli: attended All things brumby school from the age of 7, was incredibly confidant and happy with riding, then we made the mistake of buying our first horse (a stock horse x qtr horse mare) who was a horrible turd! She would roll when ever charli tried to ride her, constantly bite her and push her around and finally kept trying to kick her. After that charli’s confidence was non existent (we should of sold her way before we did). We then brought our current qtr horse mare Ruby, who is mega sweet and wonderful but doesn’t like jumping and about 6 months ago started reversing when charli tried to jump her. Unfortunately charlis confidence is now not great! She has jumped to 60cm and want to go higher, however with Ruby’s aversion to jumping (and puddles) it’s made it very hard to progress

Dream Horse:

15-16hh, don’t care about the breed, would prefer something a bit chunky.
Sensible, safe, confidence builder.
Happy doing anything particularly pony club and low level eventing/jumping.
Want something that’s been there done everything and not spooky! Prefer a gelding.
Charli gets anxiety so something that won’t be stressed if charli is (we are hoping this will reduce as her confidence builds!)

Riding Ambitions:

Eventing (dressage, jumping and XC)
Trail rides
Pony club (confidently)
Mucking about and going for a canter across a paddock

Notes:

spoke to kate 30/5. Based in ballarat and happy to view anywhere in VIC (potentially nsw as well).
Show her up to $12000 but really only has $10.000 to spend. Charli would prefer a stocky/chunky horse with jumping experience that is forward off the leg. Charli is 14. Kate doesnt want anything over 16hh and gelding is ideal.

Always had a bombproof 15.2 Appaloosa and he was old I had him until he passed then had four years off riding and got another near bombproof standardbred who has taught me lots and I’m now looking to retire him after I’ve had him for 6 months and he has shown me the ropes of getting back into riding! I enjoy trail riding, the odd stockmans challenge, riding out alone and hunts every now and then.

Dream Horse:

Coloured if possible, Or anything that looks a little quirky is what I love! But super quiet, forgiving and safe. Something anyone could jump on and isn’t matey at all. Something suitable that in a hunt if I decided to hold back he would be okay with a group running off from him. Prefer a gelding but non marey mares are okay too! Must be good on farms! Exposed to everything. An absolute been there done that type with absolutely no buck bolt or bite and no spook or look!

Riding Ambitions:

To keep going at what I’m doing which is trailing out by myself and taking my new horse to the beach, hunts, trails and horsemanship clinics.

Riding History:

Most of my riding was approx 15 years ago when I worked for Wandin Riding Academy working horses and teaching children to ride. More recently I ride my daughters riding ponies (but they are too small for me. I have owned horses for most of my life from Welsh ponies, Standard Breds to Thoroughbreds – I’m fine with the horse having some quirks.

Dream Horse:

My dream horse will be quiet, reliable and do some dressage at home with me (really would like the horse to already work in a frame). This horse would be quiet enough to put my teenage daughter on (lunge if required) and be more whoa than go (preferably but not essential). The horse will need to put up with a little bit of imbalance while I get my muscles back.

Riding Ambitions:

I would like to do some dressage at home (undercover arena) and riding around our farm. Maybe some low level ARC or pony club. To be honest I hoping this horse builds my daughters confidence (and she ‘steals it off me’). I’m happy for the horse not to be ‘perfect’ and have some quirks.

Notes:

2/6 – Kerry struggles to reply to a lot of messages when horses sent. has been sent a nice WB within budget. just got back from holiday, horse needs to be safe for young teenage daughters to ride.

7/3/23 – sent multiple horses, replays to some and not others

horse must be over 15hh – 16hh wouldn’t consider smaller, have sent previously but they are all tall

MUST be suitable for her novice teens to move onto and ride at times

open to age, Sex and breed. happy with a nice TB

BUDGET can now go to 10K

Current issue: Flooding

20/6 – emailed kerry, will call tomorrow

21/6 spoke with Kerry. Budget is firm at $7500. They are based on a farm in swan hill. Really limited on viewing time as she works full time and has three teenage kids. Horse is primarily for her 15 year old daughter who is a bit timid with the horses. Kerry will also ride this horse and keep it for herself if the daughter looses interest. Number one priority is quiet. Would love something that works in a frame but not a deal breaker.
Kerry very keen to go to Shory Park and try som eORTT’s/HRV horses and see if theres anything she likes. Needs to be more woah than go. Happy to purchase something with quirks on the ground. Will purchase sight unseen for the right unicorn. Just using for dressage. they have their own indoor arena so primarily will be ridden in there. 15-16hh, any breed. hubby not keen on anything over 12 but slight room for manovere here.

Open and HRCAV Showing and dressage 20+ years. Competed up to Royal/HOTY level. Competent rider, but presently lacking confidence.

Dream Horse:

WB or WB x
Open to other cross breeds but would need to show quality for HRCAV level 2+ Show/dressage Prefer some bling.
Prefer aged 8-16 but can be open minded for an exceptionally good unicorn at an older age.
Ideally 15.2+ (last horse was 17.1 so big is not an issue)
Must be quiet to handle on the ground and under saddle – no spook (this is non negotiable) or other undesirable behaviours. Easy to float, clip, wash, rug, stable, tie up etc (all the unicorn traits)
Nothing green, or requiring a confident rider. Ideally with a solid performance history, competing novice and above. Must be safe enough to not need to be ridden every day (I travel a lot for work so must be able to cope with 2-3 days work at times)
Gelding preferred
Absolute dream is a palomino 🙂
Budget up to $30k (but prefer 20-25k)

Riding Ambitions:

Main focus is showing and dressage, but something that would kindly pop around 60-80cm SJ/XC would be a bonus so I could broaden my horizons a little bit (but not essential)
Must be happy and safe to go out on trail rides.

Riding History:

We are serching for my daughter’s first horse. Georgia has been riding school ponies for 7 years. Currently she’s riding once a week at Wallington Park Equestrain centre. When riding the schoolies Georgia is an intermediate rider and has a good understanding of horses. The class is jumping 20-45cm but she has jumped up to 75cm in the past. She has been taught basic dressage and has done a few tests within the school. They also do an hour of theory each week to learn about caring for horses. She would now like to move forward to do pony club and eventing and therefore needs to move onto her own horse

Dream Horse:

We would like a well behaived quiet horse that is willing to please. One that can jump and has been to Pony Club and Events. Preferably something from the age of 8-15yo. 14.2h to 15.3h would suit Georgia best. No nasties or unhealthy habbits, an easy keeper (as in food) would be nice but we’re not too fussy about that

Riding Ambitions:

Georgia would like to attend pony club and events. She would like to jump more consistently and higher (80cm to 100cm eventually). Wants to improve on dressage, jumping and possibly a little bit of cross country.

safe, calm,
Notes:

sent ebook and welcome email 7/8. spoke with Debra on the phone 8/8. they are currently living in highton/geelong. horse will be kept in inverleigh until somewhere closer to home has availability. georgia 13 wants to join PC and do lots of jumping. Grade 5/4 unicorn . No room to move on $5000, that the absolute max. Can be a mare or gelding, 14.2-15.2. Can be aged but they looked at one recently who was 20 and decided that this was too old. they have been trying TB’s as thats what has been available within their price range. can view weekends or weekdays after 4.30pm.

13/9 – steph called – voicemail left

13/9 – steph chatted to jorja.
– first horse.
– at first she said the $5000 has to be inclusive of vet check and transport and then at the end she said happy to spend $5000 just of the horse.
– happy with older horse, any breed.
– looking to only ride around 2-3 times per week with the potential to do pony club in the future if she wishes. so easy to float and handle.
– will be kept on her grandfathers land when he has horses.
– a lot more confident on the ground then in the saddle, wanting something in the middle of lazy and active.
– knows finding the right horse will take time, is not in a rush.
– plans to continue lessons while we are looking so that she is established in canter by the time she buys something.
– she is loacted Spalding SA. only want to look in sa, prefers not to go down SE/Mt gambier way.

This horse is for my daughter Ivy. She is 11 years old and is currently taking lessons at Jolong Park. She has been riding for ~4 years and is described as a confident beginner. She has only ridden school horses and the odd trail ride.

Dream Horse:

Our instructors have recommended a gelding no younger than ~ 8 years old. As new horse owners (with intent to utilise Jolong facilities and care until we know what we’re doing), we’d like a horse that is gentle and currently in work. Ivy is ‘the animal whisperer’ in our family (the chook, dog, cat & cockatiel all love her).

Riding Ambitions:

Ivy would like to ride in Interschools and is particularly interested in show jumping. Ivy is also interested in dressage and would like to attend Pony Club.

Notes:

Riding History:

I rode for years when I was younger, popping over poles and general arena work. I have since had 13th are off and just began lessons again at a school. For 2 months I have been riding a 16hh OTT mare to relearn how to ride and try different disciplines. I will continue to do lessons once I have my own horse to continue learning as well.

Dream Horse:

I am looking for a quite 16hh or taller, must be sound on trails and used to noise, other animals and children. I would prefer a stocky or WB but open to TB if it was bombproof. Ideally a buckskin but I know how hard they are to come by. So colour doesn’t matter, just preferably not chesnut. Gelding over mare.

Riding Ambitions:

I want to continue learning different disciplines and have a pleasure horse that could come along as I learn. Most importantly I want a sound trail partner who I can take to the national parks near me

Notes:

This will be her first horse, needs to be quiet and nuffy proff. Could go to $15,000 ideally with gear. Sges never even tried a horse before so we will need to go over the process when we get her a viewing and guide her every step of the way.

Riding History:

I am a 66 yo and have not ridden in over 30 years. Wanting to get back into it. Previously grew up with horses but I was never interested in the show ring. My sister owns Chalani Australian Stock horse stud in SA and I rode as a teenager with a small amount of pony club, a few clinics and mainly pleasure riding. Cousin is Dr Kerry Mack Grand Prix dressage and owner of Mayfield Farm in Whittlesea. I bred my 4 horses but last one passed in 2009.

Dream Horse:

I am after 2 horses.
1) Horse for myself between 15-16.2. Absolutely no vices. Must be safe to ride on own or in a group. Good ground manners. Well conformed and sound – no windsucking or fence walking. Responsive and happy to go over occasional jumps on the trail. Don’t mind mare or gelding . If a mare not marey. My preference is for Buckskin, palomino or paint but will consider anything that fits the bill.
2) A quiet horse I can lead on the trail with my daughter or husband. He is a total beginner she has had some riding lessons. Happy to look at Quarter horse or Thoroughbred cross, or Aust Stock horse or Heritage horse. for both horses. 2nd horse 14.2 – 16h.

Riding Ambitions:

I have done a substantial amount of trail riding esp in the high country and this is what I want to get back into. I have bought 10 acres in Cherokee (base of Mt Macedon) but am there on weekends only till I retire. Horse will NOT be in regular work so must be able to hop on and ride preferably without lunging first. Nice comfortable ride over all paces, soft mouth, willing but no bolt buck, kick or shy. I will be joining the Kyneton Trail riding group and possibly an Adult riding club in Gisborne. Will take a few lessons to brush up skills and see how the body holds up!

Notes:

emailed 4/9

5/9 – anita has not touched ahorse in 30 years. Ive told her we will help her try and find somewhere close to macedon to ride and get back in the saddlre.
Will look anywhere for ahorse but ideally no more than 3 hours radius – can only look sat afternoon though till tues morning. Ideally $5000 per horse but can stretch to
$7500/$8000 if perfect. True beginner trail riding types. For horse 2 husband will be on the lead rein, hes a big guy so 15.2 minimum.

Eventing to 1* in a past life.
Have represented Tassie in Eventing, ShowJumping and Showing. But never dressage.
So next venture is to find a Pony for dressage(that will cross over to showing and maybe the odd coloured pole and small brush fence.)

Dream Horse:

So looking for a mount that will do Pony dressage. The big horses in stressage are way too boingy for me.
I do like showing, so something with bling. I am fond of pintos(i have a kenlock Park jumping schoolmaster, who hates stressage and showing)
Prefer something going but not against a youngster under saddle if straight forward. Just can’t sit spooks and bucks like I used to, so nothing too quirky. I am a relatively brave rider but have bursitis in left hip, so no spooky Arabs or highly strung riding Ponies or uber wide Units.

Riding Ambitions:

Like to represent Tassie in the Pony Dressage state squad.
But obviously not aiming for Olympic level.
I like wine , shopping and holidays too much for that to happen😝🤣🐴

I have been riding for 51yrs. Competed with wins at elementary dressage and level 1 hrcav. I like to do a bit of hrcav showing and have won champion level ribbons. I used to enjoy jumping and eventing but don’t have the nerve for this anymore. I do like to still pop over little jumps for something different to do than ride around an arena all the time.

Dream Horse:

I have my dream horse but she is unsound. Looking for her replacement- pretty with eyecatching movement. Potential to get to medium level dressage. Forward moving but sane and not spooky. Easy to do anything with on ground or in saddle. No separation anxiety. 100% sound. Good to float.

Riding Ambitions:

I want to have a horse that could take me to medium level dressage. I want to learn flying changes. I want to win an open rider class at a show.

Notes:

emailed 4/9

5/9 spoke to fiona who sounds very competent and knowledgeable. She has four paddock horses that she has bought and are now unsound, even though they have had full vet checks.

She lives in grovedale and keeps her horses in connewarre. Would like to restrict the search to 2 hours radius of geelong. Maybe a little further for the right horse butdefinately no interstate travel.
Potential is what she is searching for, she knows that she cant get amedium level horse for $15,000 but she wants the horse with the potential to get there. 15.3-16.1 (2) at the maximum. Will be ridden properly 5-6 times a week including a once a week burn in the paddock so ideal scenario.
Tried some horses at Carhill /Tyson this weekend but they were not as described. She is open to straight OTT if the potential is there. Spooky horses make her nervous.

Ride growing up the had kids. Back riding again for about 8 years. I enjoy HRCAV showing and dressage and would love to trail ride too.

Dream Horse:

Calm temperament with no sensitivities to sound etc. able to take to new places without being hot and stressed. Between 14.2 to less than 16 hands. Less than 10 years.. Balanced. Minimal quirks. Something that I could compete in open shows and has EA dressage potential. No Clydie crosses, TB’s or Standardbreds. Relaxed enough for a trail ride on our own.

Riding Ambitions:

Compete in Open shows and EA dressage. Initially will do HRCAV though

Notes:

steph – 12/9
30k or more for the right horse (“doesnt really have a budget, husband is supportive).
Price of horse dependent on age, level of education and competition experience and temperament.

Currently doing novice/elementary.
Had current horse for 7-8 years, currently grade 2/1 hrcav. he’s quirky, shies. and difficult to take out.
which is why she’d like something easier now
horse must be good on trails, be able to have a plod. has 300 acres out the back.

on 10 acres yarra valley, stables, loose boxes, equirope electric fencing, 10 acres.

Temperament number one.

Happy to look interstate but would rather Vic.
wind sucking not ideal but not a deal breaker. No separation anxiety, be able to tie up float.
hopefully something that is competitive down the track as well.

Started riding as 10yr old, lots of pony club, showing, state level PC dressage. Last horse was a thoroughbred owned him for 16 years. Ridden infrequently over last 20 years. Started back with regular weekly lessons at Jolong Park in last few months.

Dream Horse:

Prefer Gelding
Thoroughbred or warm blood/mix
Sensible
Good to handle
Potential ARC mount/dressage
Likes a trail ride
My last horse was like a dog, very smoochy so this would be a plus but not essential haha

Riding Ambitions:

Firstly to be riding fit, with regular riding and lessons
Would like to join ARC
possible dressage competition down the track

Notes:

Michele has recently signed back up. We found her a quiet OTT from Lou Abbey and he has not settled into the busy life at Jolong. So she is now wanting an educated schoolmaster. VERY quiet and proven off property – something older fine. She will be ok if it doesn’t vet perfectly I think. Just need great easy nature – especially at Jolong as its a mad house!

Budget around $25-30K
Approx 15.2-16.2
Dressage focus but starting from rusty 😂, ARC, clinics etc. Not interested in jumping
Needs to be pretty unflappable & easy to take offsite. No spook (can’t handle it)
No thoroughbreds (maybe mix)
Needs to be able to handle Jolong Park (for now)
Nikki, I am still struggling to rehome Serge, no takers with Lou’s ad. I’m paying instructors at JP to keep him in work 3 days a week starting yesterday (he hadn’t been ridden in 6 weeks) Have you got any ideas?
Thanks
Michele

She was just starting to trot on her own. She does get nervous and needs to take things slowly. . This horse I brought to gain confidence for myself after a fall.. He was described as an absolute gentleman who if you can’t ride him you may as well hop back on the fence… Cheeky I know.😂. But he’s been a dream and we are looking for another.. As he is happily retired..

I started riding from scratch 2 years ago and fell in love with it.

I have also taken part in 2 jumping shows at 50cm and managed a clear round for each of the them. At the moment I have lessons 3-4 times a week, 3 flat lessons and 1 jumping/poles lesson.. My new horse would be agisted on my instructor’s property so there will be someone to help me with lessons and general care.

Dream Horse:

A gentle, reiiable easy going horse that enjoys dressage (and possibly a bit of low level jumping. I’m looking for a kind and friendly soul mate that would stay with me forever. He/she should be around 15 hands to 15.2 hands (My hight is 5ft 2 so a smaller horse would suit).

Riding Ambitions:

I want to progress from the preliminary level to Elementary or even much later Medium dressage level. I have a long way to go. But hopefully with hard work that can happen.
I have ticked the Beginner level box below – I’m not a total beginner somewhere between beginner/novice level.

– Happy to look out side of 15.2hh up to 16/16.1hh wont rule out a well schooled horse if not in 15hh range.
– 15,000 horse alone, maybe a bit of wiggle room.
– doesnt really want to go beyond 15yo.
– no bolting, no bucking, no rearing.
– prefer Vic, only.
– good to take out, good to float, easy on the ground.
– wants to know why horses are for sale (coach asked her to ask).
– Will stretch budget for the right horse.

Dream Horse:

Solid and stable with a very calm temperament.
Able to just get out of paddock and ride. Ideally for trails and paddock riding.

Riding Ambitions:

Causal riding. Paddock and trails.
Not currently planning on competing.

Notes:

7/3/23 – tried bruce,didn’t like.
went to see barbie but they had booked two in one day viewing so she canned it

15/2/23 – booked to see Bruce with Chloe Harris on the weekend

3/1 – ? Seeing cinnamon in Colac and maybe donkey as well. ADDIT – 25/1 she has been given contact numbers to go see both horses to arrange viewings as that is the request of owners

21/12 – will see cinnamon in Colac post the new year. located Colac

having a couple of rides back during the Christmas period

Richelle lives in Bannockburn, this was a gift from her husband for her birthday. they are moving to Colac in January. She can’t really purchase until Jan as she will be an hour + from her horse. She has two little kids.
rode as a child / teen but hasn’t for many years.
described herself as a straight out beginner she said she would barley get out of a walk if she did go to try something. my suggstion to her was go on some trail rides between now and Christmas ( spring creek)
or alternately go for a few rides on her sisters horse.
she really needs some hours back in the saddle.

upon discussing application I told her that $5K will struggle to get a true beginners horse, she may have a small amount of flex in that to 6.5 ish

she would prefer bin the 14hh mark – 15hh
she’s not very tall herself. happy to purchase an older horse her last horse was 18 when she bought it so okay with this.
her sister will assist with viewings as I said if you are only able to walk you will need to be able to have someone else also ride.

doesn’t mind mare or gelding

happy to travel all over vic and ? maybe lower NSW Wagga area / or border SA.

Riding History:

I had 6 months of riding lessons when I was 8, then intermittently going to day camps and trail rides until I started lessons again at 13, after 1 year I leased a tb gelding and was left to my own devices so I didn’t progress, I then ended the lease after 9 months and bought a paint mare and agitated at a place with an on site coach and had regular lessons on my mare, but I progressed too quickly and she was getting old and wanting to slow down, so I moved her on. Now I am looking fo my next horse. I am not a nervous rider, I can handle bolts and kicks, but it would be better to not have a horse that acts up like that.

Dream Horse:

My dream horse would have a big, goofy personality with a positive, willing attitude to ridden work. The type that follows you around the paddock and just wants to be with you. Walk, trot, canter, established with a soft and supple way of going in the bridle. No vices, quirks are ok as long as they are not too much.
I would love a silver bay, lack and white (pinto or paint), dark bay, liver chestnut, or black, some chrome would be nice. The chunkier the better.

Riding Ambitions:

I would love to do a bit of everything, low level dressage, jumping, XC, trails, beach riding, go out to the occasional show. I’m not super competitive.

Riding History:

Grew up with my ponies and pony club from 12. Evented and hunted my 2 horses through 16- 30. Pleasure riding from 30-35. Break with kids 35-45 . Flat work, leisure riding 45-60 on my daughters horse and last 5 years on one of our racehorses. Always ridden thoroughbreds 15.3 -16.1

Dream Horse:

Gelding ( love chesnuts!) 15.3-16.1
Something I can just get on a ride without lunging etc. Must be educated and safe. No Shying buck kick etc. Possibly retired from mid level competing, so as long as sound and quiet for flat work, trail rides etc. I like having lessons and grid work but no more jumping for me. 🥲 Does not have to be a thoroughbred. Not interested in something that has only been schooled for a few months off the track. My ideal horse would be educated and bombproof!

Riding Ambitions:

My current horse is gorgeous, I love him to bits but he is anxious and a windsucker with ulcers when being worked. He needs lunging and ground work to settle before riding and I am getting too old to be doing this just for pleasure riding. He has SIJ issues from racing so if I work him to keep him settled he gets sore which is not fair on him. I would like to be able to do adult riding school/ classes and trail rides and generally just have some relaxed and fun safe riding around our property and at local clubs. Needs to be NOT in constant work to be calm although I usually like to ride 2-3 x a week when possible.
I will bring my current horse back in from spelling so am happy to wait to find the right horse. He will have a lovely home in the Adelaide Hills. Thank you for your help with my search.

Educated quiet safe gelding NO shying

Been there and done that, not green.
At least prelim education.
No history of bucking, bolting, rearing or spooking.

Excellent ground manners, easy to float, clip, for farrier, rug.
A gelding is preferable.
A horse that doesn’t feed off any anxiety in the rider.
Has had exposure to lots of different environments and isn’t fazed.

Asking Price: 15000 to 5000
Sex: Gelding, Mare
Rider Level: Intermediate
Location: Victoria
Riding History:

I have always ridden but mostly pleasure and trail riding early on. It’s not until about 6 years ago that I got into doing HRCAV, lessons, clinics and competitions. I would consider myself an intermediate but nervous rider due to a fall I had when I was 15 where I broke my back and have never quite gotten over the nerves fully.

Dream Horse:

Ideally wanting a gelding bur would consider non-marey mares. 14-15hh would be ideal, can fit on ponies as small as 13.2hh as long as they are solid enough to take up my leg. Age of 7-14 ideally. Budget of 12k ideally, for something absolutely perfect I might be able to stretch an extra 1-2k but would prefer not to spend over 12k. Open to breed but no Standardbreds, TBs or Arabs. Would consider crosses of these. I would love a horse that looks good and moves well to be a bit competitive and that jumps nice and calmly and is confident out of trail rides and in new environments. Obviously safety comes above all, but for my budget I don’t want an absolute donkey. I need a horse that is ok to be ridden just 1-2 times a week without getting fresh and needing lunging before getting on. I need a horse who has the basics well established, they need to be able to travel in a frame, be balanced in all paces, get the correct canter lead etc. I do need a horse that will stand still and behave while tied up and that will float well (on a straight load float) as I travel most places alone, I really do need a safe, reliable, trustworthy and sound new best friend. I also need a horse located within 2 hours of Seymour as I have bulging discs in my back which makes long drives hard. I would only be available to view horses on weekends unless it’s very local (within 30 minutes of Seymour) I might be able to go a week night/day depending on my work schedule.

Riding Ambitions:

Im 37 years old, started riding when I was 5. I had a break from riding when I had kids but have been back riding for the past 2 years. I have recently been graded level 3 in dressage. I am part of the Adult riding clubs, attending monthly rallies at 2 local clubs, clinics and competitions. I do not do jumping, due to a previous fright years ago with a silly horse. I ride 3 times a week, like to ride at different places for experience. I have weekly lessons with 2 different instructors.

Dream Horse:

Easy going, easy to take out, good to C/S/F, no B/B.
Nothing silly or stupid. I am confident however if a horse starts going mental trying to throw me off I will jump off.
I am a bigger rider so need a chunkier horse to carry my weight.

Riding Ambitions:

I want to improve my riding ability through clinics, lessons and competing.

Brent Kelly is my farrier and he suggested I contact Nicky for some support through this process.

I currently own a TB who is pretty amazing. In saying this he has his TB moments when I first get on he bucks for about 3 mins then is ok. Sometimes looses his shit at random objects but he is safe and I trust him 100%

Rider Level: Intermediate

Riding History:

Began riding at 5, had lessons until I was 10 then had my own pony then horse until I was 20 doing PC, shows etc (up to grade 3). Worked briefly as a rider for a hunting stable & at a riding school in my 20’s. Had a XC fall & this put me out of riding for a while. Then came uni, business and kids & before I knew it years and years went past without horses! I’m now 42! After a huge break I started dressage lessons at the beginning of 2022. Bought a 16.3hh 5yo WB in late 2022 who has been too much horse for me & I haven’t enjoyed the big baby horse moments (he’s quite spooky). I’m completely devastated about my decision to sell him but we are not the right fit for each other. His green baby moments & nervousness has rattled my confidence with him & that’s not what he needs :’( I’m wanting to find a horse with some more miles & education. Something more proven & more of an allrounder I can feel safe on and on the ground with.

Dream Horse:

My dream horse would be around 16hh ish around 8 with an amazing smoochy temperament, plenty of exposure, a solid education on the flat. Beautiful ground manners. Happy & brave to enjoy ARC one day, a trail the next, dressage lessons, a dressage day here & there, clinics & low level jumping. A really fun, safe horse with ability & flash enough to do some low level comps. I enjoy learning more about dressage so lovely movement & working in a soft frame will suit what I prefer to ride. Not a kick along but not hot, the happy medium. Steady in the contact & not too heavy on the hands. Beautiful ground manners & used to busy environments (I’m at a very busy large agistment / riding school centre & I don’t want this to be an issue). A real best friend type that will be happy to be spoiled by myself & my family. I ride 4-5 x per week currently , but I’d definitely prefer a horse I don’t need to lunge down to get on.
My specific dealbreaker is spookiness, I don’t cope well with it. I have really struggled with this with my last horse on the ground & riding, a sideways jump or unpredictable behavior makes me uneasy. Since having kids this is something I can’t quite get used to! I guess it’s my quirk haha..
The other obvious is sound, vice free, easy for me to float & take out on my own 🙂
I am open to breed as long as quality type, I tend to gravitate towards WB , WB x TB, WB x, ISH , Anglo , ArabxWB etc. I’ve previously had 2 failed vet checks with OTTBs that I fell in love with so if TB must be sound & really special. If OTT must have a solid proven post racing education & exposure.

My budget is up to around $28k , I am happy to pay for the dream horse that will keep me safe.

I’ve had 3 of my own geldings & a lease gelding, strangely never had a mare, love geldings but open to a non-marey mare 🙂

Riding Ambitions:

HRCAV, clinics, weekly dressage lessons, dressage days, trails, low level jumps & potentially a little XC. Not going to the Olympics but this is what I’m hoping will be my dream horse after waiting many years for this, so something really special that I can adore would be fantastic.

Horse will be kept in 5 star full care agistment with endless love, coaching, body work & everything it could ever need.

Notes:

welcome email sent 27/4

I realise my dream horse doesn’t come along often and may take a while to find but I am happy to wait until the right one comes long. I am looking for a horse who is willing to give everything asked of him, exceptionally quiet that loves people and is happy to be ridden by any level of rider in any setting and can adapt accordingly. Has done miles of trails on his own or in company and can be ridden by a beginner rider and then go out and enjoy teaching me the ropes in dressage and not change in temperament. Dressage schoolmaster with all the buttons and education that is not sensitive or easily offended if I don’t quite get things right. Non spooky, brave, literally bombproof, confidence builder. Quiet and solid enough for my beginner husband to ride occasionally. Must have a kind, unflappable nature and can adapt to any level of rider. Not girthy, no bite, buck or bolt, Good to shoe, float etc. Ok to be paddocked/stabled alone. Enjoys lots of attention, brushing and loves his humans. Will be kept on our own property for a forever home.

I have been riding for most of my life. Since I now have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome I would ride once/twice a week. There will be times I will need a break from riding due to my disability. I attend a campdraft around once a month. I am an intermediate rider but since my horse accident last year and sustaining a head injury I have lost alot of confidence thus needing a horse I can truly trust and feel safe.

Dream Horse:

I am looking for a registered Quarter Horse or Australian Stock Horse cross Quarter Horse. Needing a horse that is Very safe, quite, does not shy, a calm horse that is not anxious at events, no vices and good in the mouth. Needs to be a confidence building horse, calm, not sensitive, good to shoe, easy to load onto a 2 horse float and travel well. A horse that is happy to be ridden by themselves, does not have to be ridden all the time and is good after a break and never pigrooted. A horse that is well trained has campdrafted and shows initiative with cattle. A horse that has cutting training could be perfect. This horse is to be educated and ready to put on my float. I am not after the blue ribbon in any event just a horse that will allow me to enjoy riding and competing again. The horse needs to be located in NSW and I will not buy with out riding the horse first. My budget is $20 but possible $25K

Riding Ambitions:

I would like to return to do some campdrafting and cattle training days. I would also like to have a go at cutting but I have never done cutting just campdrafting. I ride on our property for leisure and also muster cattle. Most riding I will do on my property is done alone. I do have another horse so there will be a paddock companion.

Safe in every aspect!!

Riding History:

I am 56 and have been riding on and off since I was 12. I ride for fun and like to try different things. I have done PC, ARC, clinics, jumping, sporting, small events, camps and trail riding. I have not ridden for years, due to having unsound horses and do not have the confidence I used to have.

Dream Horse:

No specific breed, must be able to carry my 75kgs and height of 173cm. My favourite horses have been mares, but I am also open to geldings. I am looking for a brave and kind horse for trail riding and ARC. It needs to be able to go riding alone. I do not want any behavioural issues and it needs to be able to get along with my mares.

Riding Ambitions:

Trail riding, ARC, small events and rides. I am not competitive and just want a horse to have fun with.

Age: 4 YO to 8 YO
Asking Price: 20000 to 10000
Sex:
Rider Level: Intermediate
Location: Victoria
Riding History:

I have been riding all my life in showing and dressage. Now I am mainly focussed on dressage. I had a break while I had my children. Since then, I have been back riding for the past 10 years. Before I retired my horse, I was competing HRCAV L2 moving to L1. I am not 100% confident rider but gain confidence when I know the horse well. The last two horses have been quirky chestnut mares, so I can manage a few problems.
I have my own farm, with arena, stables and plenty of laneways to escape the arena. I have an angle load float. The other horses on the property include two retirees and a Shetland pony.

Dream Horse:

Age – 4yrs to 8yrs
Height – 15.2 to 16.2
Gelding or Mare
Budget $15k to $20
Breed – warmblood, warmblood cross. I will consider TB, if they have few typical bad TB traits, but it would have to be a above average TB. No STB
Ideally, I would like a horse whose experiences match its age. It must have a good laid-back attitude, as I do everything myself, loading, floating, tying up to the float etc. I don’t want anything that is super tense, hot or very forward moving.
Education: I am happy to do the education myself and work up the grades/levels as a team. Regardless of age, it must have a good correct start with the basics. Good transitions especially into canter. If its on the older side, leg yields and established lengthened trot & canter.
Experience: I would prefer something that has had competition experience or at least off property outings with regular lessons or rallies.
I would rather a young horse with a great attitude than an older horse who has been passed around owners. I want a horse that has genuine reason for sale, I not interest in someone else’s problem child.

Riding Ambitions:

I hope to buy a horse to have forever and to build a strong relationship with. I would like to continue regular lessons and compete regularly. Ideally have a horse at the same level as my riding or a little below, so that I can educate and we can move up the levels together.

Notes:

Client had friend sell her a horse

– curious nature
– the same out and about as at home
– extremely reliable and consistent
– excellent ground manners

Returning to riding after a long break (15 years)
Use to ride regularly and show hacks( many moons ago ) I am an elderly lady (66 y.o) and I would consider myself as a Novice rider, at this stage. This level will change I hope, once I get a horse and commence lessons again and start riding regularly? I do have Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia, which can on occassions slow me down, but won’t stop me from riding.

Dream Horse:

A quiet, safe and easy horse that I can take out to various venues eg ARC, Low level showing and a bit of trail riding.
Must be vice free and no nasties. Doesn’t require a lot of regular work to remain sane. Not too forward and nothing that gets HOT.

Riding Ambitions:

I would like to do some Ag Shows, Novice Dressage, As well as some trail riding.
