After losing millys rider due to university commitments I'm now looking for someone to ride her a few times a week to keep her ticking over through the winter as I don't have time to, she's a quirky girl with a big personality, not a novice ride is known to pop in a little rear when told to do something she doesn't want to, completely bombproof to hack out in company but is known to nap when taking out alone. Capable of jumping well and has done some basic dressage.... She's hunted and team chased in her previous home...bred out of definite article and trained by Brendan Powell who I've spoken to and claims her forte is jumping so think she would excel with just a little time.... She's a mare with much potential and the knowledge I just don't have time to achieve the best out of her. I'm happy for her to do whatever, either it be just bimbling about or taking her to shows, hunting etc..... We have a floodlight ménage so able to ride whenever tho isn't overly big.... All her day to day care and bills will continue to be covered by myself all I ask is for help towards costs of shoes.... Feel free to contact me with any questions. No more time wasters and no one under 15 as I can't be around all the time and I don't want to have to look after people I just want an experienced rider that doesn't have the time or money to keep there own.
Important Checklist for adopting or buying a Thoroughbred
Before making contact, or planning a visit for this Thoroughbred, please make sure you have considered all the points made on the below checklist. We advise that you DO NOT buy a horse from the advertiser unless you are happy that you can tick off every point on this list and are confident that the advertiser is genuine. If you have any concerns over an advertiser please report them to us.
The fact that you’re considering adopting, or buying a new horse is an important decision and one that should not be taken lightly. Not only will looking after a horse take up a lot of your own personal time, although thoroughly enjoyable, it can also become very expensive. Your new friend will solely rely on you in many ways, so it's important that you’re 100% committed beforehand. You can do further reading about caring for horses and their well-being in our pet advice section.
Is the advertiser genuine?
Confirm that the advertiser is genuine. You can do this by arranging a visit with the potential advertisers home, if they try to avoid you visiting, or make excuses, then you should be concerned. If the advertiser asks for money, or deposit to be paid online without you visiting the horse at their home, or they request to meet you somewhere or drop the horse off at yours, then please DO NOT agree. We advise that you should never send money online. If you’re concerned about an advertisers authenticity then please report them to us.
MyPetZilla conducts various checks on advertisers on this site, but are unable to confirm that all are genuine. So please make sure you visit the advertiser at their home and verify this yourself.
Commitment to owning a horse
If this is your very first horse, then you need to be aware that owning a horse is a big commitment and can be exhausting, as well as extremely rewarding, so you need to make sure that you have the time and energy to look after your horse every day. If you’re looking to add another horse to your herd, then you need to consider if you have time to commit to an extra horse.
Appropriate home for your horse
It's important to consider if you have the appropriate home for your four-legged friend. If you’re already committed to a field rental or livery yard, you will need to make sure you have enough space for an additional horse. Or, if you’re a new owner of a horse, it's worth doing your research for costs to rent a field, or livery yard before making a decision.
Check the age of the horse
Before bringing your horse home, it's important that they've spent at least 6 months with their mothers before.
Health check of the horse
It is very important that you check the health of your horse before you decide to adopt or buy. Although this can be difficult, most sellers will agree that you can return the horse within 48 hours should they have any health issues. It's worth taking your horse to the vet of equine specialist for a complete health check as soon as you take them home. The seller should be willing for you to do this. If the horse has already had a health check by the sellers veterinary practice, then they should provide you with the legitimate paperwork to support this. It is also worth ringing the vet to confirm everything beforehand.
