My favourite ad from the latest Horse & Hound to reach me:
“Super, safe and sensible
For mother/daughter/grandma share.
Full up 14 hands 2in. con x gelding. 6yrs
with sadly absolutely no aspirations to
be a wizzy competition pony. Although
has all the stunning looks, would
enjoy a family picnic or hack alone or in
company. Show jump and XC to medium
level. Even a bit of dressage with snaffle
mouth and proud self carriage. Easy
super friendly best pal, but always going
to be too sane and sensible for us.”
How lovely to see an ad you might actually believe, rather than the endless procession of super-ponies!
I love reading the adverts. Especially those for very big horses and very small ponies. And bombproof cobs.
