Horses for sale or loan

Wanting to buy, loan, sell or share a pony and not sure the best way forward!?

Here at Shardeloes we are committed to offering the very best in horse-care. We are passionately committed to ensuring our horses & ponies enjoy a fantastic quality of life. We have special policy in place whereby we aim to move our horses onwards and upwards at least every two years (where we see a need) in order that they avoid becoming stale and always have the security of a loving owner and home for life.

The horses & ponies that we offer for sale or loan have been through the riding school and will have been owned by us for a minimum of 3 months and so have a proven track record for ability and safety, there are numerous opportunities to see them in action or to have lessons on them and get to know them before committing to purchase.

Sharing Arrangements

Are you looking to have the freedom and flexibility of having your own horse or pony but without full responsibility? We have a number of horses or ponies that may be suitable for you to share, dependent on your skill, knowledge and experience.

Sharing allows you unlimited contact for grooming and up to 4 hrs riding per week (schedule to be agreed with reception around pre booked lessons) Strictly subject to instructor approval and assessment of suitability, a sharer is expected to have at least one lesson a week with us (not included in price)

Sharing is based on a minimum 1 month contract and payable monthly in advance.

LULU - 13.2hh approx - 12 year old chestnut mare - £3,950

This very pretty pony came to us in November 2012 and has become a firm favourite in the riding school. She has done all pony club activities including camp with her previous owners. Lulu is quiet enough to do our lead-rein and lunge lessons on for beginners, but is also great off the lead-rein with our more capable children. She loves to jump and will jump fillers etc without a problem. She loves to be fussed and cuddled and will stand for hours to be groomed!

Free sales livery (currently no vacancies)

Would you like us to take the hassle out of selling your horses? We will take your horse on free livery here for up to three months in order to find the right owner, subject to the horse's suitability for use on working livery 12 hours a week, we don't advertise them for the first month so we can throughly assess them in order to find them the perfect home. We will cover forage, bedding, vaccinations, tack and care during that time (offer excludes veterinary care, shoes and insurance)

We also offer a service whereby we can find an appropriate horse/pony for you or arrange to sell your horse on your behalf for either a set fee or agreed commission (paid by the seller) and we invite you to come and meet with us to discuss your requirements in more detail.
