Hi don't know if anyone can help?... my mum is considering taking up riding again and is thinking about purchasing her own horse (we have 2 already but neither are suitable for her to ride!). She is 50 something and although she was once very brave she doesn't have a great deal of confidence now. We are trying to find a small horse 15 h ish for her to hack out with us and also do some light hunting (if she gets brave enough!) Does anyone know of any reputable dealers of safe horses? or anyone have something for sale which might suit? we are on Notts/Leics border but willing to travel within reason.

My advice would be to stick up some Wanted Bombproof/Spookproof Horse notices in local tack shops and feed merchants. That way you will be buying a horse who's history is known locally and you can also try it out as many times as you want without having to travel vast distances.
