|Biscuit is a 13.1HH Dun Connemara mare and needs a new jockey. She is 23 but extremely young at heart. She has done all PC activities including camps, showjumping, hunter trials, mounted games and dressage and is a brilliant hunting pony. Hunting is definitely her favourite event! She hacks out in company and alone. She has also done her levels 1, 2 and 3 at the British Racing School and has taken my daughter from her first pony to a confident jockey.
She does not act her age and is fun to ride. As she is rather forward going she would be best suited to a more confident jockey. She has never had a vet and is good to box, shoe, clip etc. We are only looking for the BEST of homes for Biscuit to teach another little jockey as we love her dearly.
Based in Hertfordshire please call Tilly for more info.

In addition to the London gallery on Cork Street, Messum’s has a sculpture garden at Lord’s Wood in countryside above Marlow, Buckinghamshire, open by appointment, where outdoor exhibitions of sculpture are complemented by a gallery space.
We currently have an exhibition showing by the Great-Grandson of Claude Monet, Jean-Marie Toulgouat. His work is vibrant and expressive with clear influences from his surroundings at the famous gardens of Giverny, his birth place. This exhibition truly celebrates the flora (and countryside) that flourished in the grounds in which Jean-Marie was instrumental in reconstructing.
Please take a look on our website or come in to the gallery to see us.

|14.2 Quantock Pony |
|Very sadly FOR SALE
14.2 Quantock Pony
Absolute gem of a pony. This pony just takes everything in his stride. He is perfect to hack out, never bats an eye at anything, isn’t strong or fizzy, has seen hounds, happy to go first or last, and is a mothers dream! He is easy to ride, very athletic, has a lovely rhythmic way of jumping (not rushing fences!) and is showing real scope. He is 9 years old, but has very low mileage, and would make a fabulous parent/child share, although he’s only 14.2, he rides and feels bigger. He qualified for and went to the British Riding Club championships in Lincoln at the beginning of September (which was only his third show with me!) He was a pleasure to take, travelled the 4 hour journey happily, settled in his temporary stable and jumped two fantastic rounds in the 70cm show jumping, as well as a lovely clear in the 75cm Style jumping, in which he was placed 5th individually.

|STUNNING HUNT HORSE FOR SALE|
|Busker is a 16.3hh ISH grey gelding.
A true gentleman on the hunting field. Stands beautifully at the meet and out on point. He has been used for the past 2 seasons as a masters horse, as well as being ridden by ladies. Always snaffle mouthed.
Busker could easily turn his hoof to RC/dressage or eventing. He is beautifully schooled on the flat. He is super careful, straight and easy to a fence with a brilliant technique. A proper 'push button ride' !
Busker is a lovely person to have on the yard. Polite and mannerly both in and out of the stable. He is 100% to box/ shoe/ clip & catch.
Busker is 14 years young but he is still full of life! He loves his hunting job, and although he will never buck or rear, he is a 'get on and go' type. So we feel he would be best suited to jumping country.
Pictures available on request.
Based in Devon
|Good experienced rider available. Flexible but early mornings preferred at present during this hot spell.
