Picking a Performance Pony? – Horse Scout has three little gems for you.


Horse Scout has some amazing performance ponies listed on its Ponies For Sale pages. Are you looking for a new ride for the coming season? Take a look at what we have listed.

Solero III (Solly) is a 10 year old, 14.1hh (144cm LHC) chestnut Dutch-bred mare. Competing JC with Actual winnings of £2547 and Notational of £894. Described as a true schoolmistress, both kind and genuine and has been consistently successful with several different riders from 80cm – 1.25m. She has been very sadly outgrown and we are looking for a very special new home for her as she has been known to us since she was imported from Holland as a 4 year old.   Solly is incredibly careful, yet brave and straightforward. She is always snaffle-mouthed and is never strong or silly. She can turn on a sixpence and is very hard to beat in a jump off.   Solly’s BS record speaks for itself: she is an absolute rosette machine. She was 5th in the Winter JC Final at RIHS in 2012, and in the same year missed HOYs qualification in the NC and Fox second rounds by one place only. Solly is equally happy taking a more novice jockey around smaller tracks and she has many, many wins from 90cm – 1.10m. She will carry the littlest rider and teach them the job. She has recently taken a five year old child out for a ride and safely given her the first canter!   In the six months we have owned her, Solly has won nine 1m opens including the 1m Open at Welsh HPI 2014 out of 134 entries, and she has many other placings at this height. She came 3rd in her first Fox with us at Addington Manor, and also qualified for 1m Restricted Rider and 1.10 Adventurer classes at Scope Festival 2014. At Scope she was 16th out of more than 100 competitors in the Restricted Rider qualifier – this was on grass.   Solly has the sweetest nature and is not at all mareish. She is absolutely bombproof on hacks, and can be handled by the smallest child. She does need sedation to be clipped, but other than that, she is absolutely perfect.   Sadly our daughter has grown 4 inches since the summer and is now too tall. Five star home only for this fabulous pony.   She has absolutely no vices, is open to any vet and we have great trial facilities. Based in Berkshire

Near Blandford in Dorset we have an Irish sports pony of 41.1hh “Norbet” who “will always try his hardest”. He will go off any stride. His owners say “He will make a Big Track pony (Hoys Potential) with an experienced rider”. Described as very scopey – He loves his job and Serious contender for Newcomers / Foxhunter 2nd rounds and Winter JC for 2015 with scope to go on to jump JA & Europeans. Fantastic opportunity to acquire such a lovely pony as rider moving onto horses Extremely fast against the clock and very careful. Winnings of £794 and 383 points. Norbet has the heart of a lion – he is brave and bold and totally honest. Great to shoe, clip, load etc…Norbet can be sharp so 5* professional home needed Will be available after EHPI Serious enquiries only
