Hi all, my names Kate and I’ve been riding for roughly 10 years now, I’m coming up 19 this December and I’ve decided it’s finally time to get my first horse, I’m currently doing a level 2 equine apprenticeship at a yard near me which offers a variety of services and super good livery, fields and plenty of off road hacking.
Ideally I’m looking for a horse ranging from 14hh to 16hh as I’m a light weight rider and I’m about 5’6ft. Age doesn’t really matter to me it’s more the horses level and temperament, I’m hoping to find a horse that’s calm, bombproof, happy hacker, loves a good groom, easy to do in all ways i.e farrier, vet. I’m not big into showing more just general riding but I may consider cross country in the future so I’m happy to teach the horse myself, I wouldn’t mind a horse that doesn’t mind popping a few jumps now and then or one that might need a bit more training when it comes to jumping. Ideally the horses temperament when riding would be calm, but responsive or ploddy, eager to please or a little bit lazy haha, nothing strong or silly or a bucking bronco. Any breed of horse is fine, I may consider a horse over 16hh if it’s got what I’m looking for :). The earliest I’m looking to buy my first love horse is around mid November to late December due to no spaces currently being available at my chosen yard until November to December time, although I’m happy to loan before buying if theirs a horse that suits me. Please feel free to message me anything or ask any questions, many thanks Kate ...Read full description
