My friend is trying to find a home for a three year old thoroughbred horse. He is chestnut and approx 16.1 / 16.2 hh. He has had a wind operation and is not suitable for racing but would be fine for hacking/showjumping etc (with additional schooling of course). I know this is a long shot but if anyone is interested please contact me as soon as possible. PS. He is a young horse so whoever takes him would need to be a fairly competent rider.October 15, 2009 at 1:16 pm #79456JedtKeymaster
My sister in law is involved with horses so I’ll ask her if she knows anyone who might be interested….October 15, 2009 at 1:34 pm #79462

Can’t be for me soooooooooooo sad, but I’m going to give the info to the girl who lend me her gear every week for my riding lesson.October 15, 2009 at 3:50 pm #79482hjsMember
Fabienne, where do you go for riding lessons?
dd almost 6 and been pestering me all year to take her. Am thinking of resurrecting my own horse-rididng days and going with her if can find a decent recommendation.
Have heard Castle something in Julianstown decent?October 15, 2009 at 3:54 pm #79483
Doing in castlehill Julainstown.

just read your post correctly this time.
The instructor is a lovely woman mum of 1 at least. Her child is about 6ish years old.
So on top of her qualifications she’s got some personal experience with kids.
Never seen a kid lesson there, but it’s a great place.
I asked her about my onw kids, she said not before 6 years old, but said as well, even if they’re really carefull about giving the right poney to the right child, if the child is small (in size) being on a poney can put some pressure on the hips/joints as the poney can be quite wide for kids legs.
So it’s a question of age, but as well right size for age.
So 6 years old is on average, but it’s down to parents to make the choice.
my dd will have to wait a bit longer, she’s so petite.
But I’m glad that she was honest with me and not just trying to get an extra kid in the class.
Twice during the summer my kids are walking on a poney for 30 min at the time, in France, and they really enjoy it.

She sounds sound!
Dd 6 in Dec, but v tall, in 7/8 yr old clothes 4 the height. Av build also, not heifer but defo not petite so would prob be fine.
Might do it as Xmas gift 4 her, get the gear and book some lessons.
Would like to go down have a shufty at place beforehand and check it out in terms of what I may do too!
Will get more info off u soon.
Thanks a mill.October 15, 2009 at 4:18 pm #79486
dd will be 6 in april, she still fits in last year clothes.
Bought new track suit for school, size 26 as she was 24 last year. She might wear it in june!
So she’ll have to wait a long time before regular riding lessons.
Talk soon.October 15, 2009 at 6:58 pm #79498
Thanks for the replies girls 😀October 16, 2009 at 1:21 pm #79534BestAuntParticipant
Has your friend had any look with the horse? I have a horse my self that I keep in a yard in Kinsely, if you had notice/advertisement I could stick some up around some of the local stables if you like?October 16, 2009 at 1:37 pm #79537Taylor5Member
I have someone looking at the horse, so with a bit of luck it will find a new homeOctober 18, 2009 at 9:19 am #79610
Thanks for that BestAunt…hopefully Taylor’s contact will take him but if not I’ll let you know. 😀
