Lady is simply wonderful. She is absolutely perfect to handle on the ground and bomb proof in almost any conditions. She is kind and gentle and loves being groomed. I have ridden her since I was 13 when we took part in cross country, show jumping and hunter trials. My mum (who lives with MS) has ridden and driven her until last summer. She has been on loan since summer 15 where she has been used as a happy hack and confidence -giver for children and nervous adults.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    We would love somebody to loan/share her with me in the Berkshire area if possible. I am a new full-time teacher with a busy schedule but would love to see/ride her and help out on a weekly basis with finances shared. Obviously this (and her exact potential location) is something we could negotiate. We would prefer her next home to be long-term/permanent.

Please describe your horses behaviour when hacking out alone and in company

  • you will be allowed to ride the horse 6 days a week
  • during summer and winter complete this amount of work/duties: This would be entirely negotiable. Ideally for me, the sharer will look after Lady 3-7 days a week. The duties would be similar all year as Lady lives out. I am currently buying a house in Lambourn, Berkshire and it is possible for Lady to be moved to the sharers preferred address or a yard which I organise in that area. With the right sharer, we would be happy for a loan agreement to take place. This would then involve the sharer treating Lady as their own as long as I can have access to ride/see her and we would share/ negotiate costs.
  • make a monthly contribution of £50 to the keep of this horse to be paid to the animal's owner

Fell

The Fell Pony is a versatile, working breed of mountain and moorland pony originating in the northern England around Cumbria. It was originally from the fells of northwest England, and is used as a riding and driving pony. The breed is closely related to its geographic neighbour, the Dales Pony, but is generally smaller and heavier in build. The Fell pony is noted for agility, strength, hardiness and balance.

Breed characteristics:

  •  Fell Ponies vary a good deal in weight and size, so that ponies may be found to carry almost any rider. The average height of the breed is 13.2 hands (54 inches, 137 cm), and the upper height limit for the breed is 14 hands (56 inches, 142 cm). The breed was bred for the harsh environment of Northern England, so they are adaptable to almost any climate.
  • The colours accepted in the breed are black, brown, bay and grey. Chestnuts, Piebalds and skewbalds are not allowed. A star on the head and/or a white on or below the hind fetlock is acceptable. However, excess white markings are discouraged.
  • The Fell Pony should be constitutionally hardy and show good pony characteristics, including the traits of the mountain and moorland pony breeds, and at the same time, have a lively and alert attitude and good bone structure. The breed generally has a steady temperament.
  • The Fell pony has free-flowing gaits, and is generally sure-footed even in rough terrain.
  • Fell ponies are reliable jumpers and agile, which makes them useful for cross country riding or hunting. Most animals of the breed lack the scope to make top class jumping ponies, but Fell ponies generally are well up to local show or Pony Club event standard.
