Vere Phillips is always well recommended, but not cheap. Mostly ISH types i think, someone else will prob fill you in better.

My friend has a lovely 15.2hh-15.3hh(ish) 3/4 welsh cob gelding for sale at the mo. He is 13 years old and has done a bit of everything including eventing and hunting. Think he's show jumped to about 1.10m. I would by him myself if I didn't already have a horse! Very safe but quite sparky and fun. If you want any more info let me know and I will give you my friends contact details. We are based near Cirencester.

Whereabouts are you? There's Jimmy Lister if you're in the South East, he is based in North Essex (Quendon)

Vere is brilliant but his horses are not cheap... but you get what you pay for, and then some. tbh i'd look on horsequest, horsedeals etc at private sales, there are a lot of nice horses around at the moment at very good prices.

I got my youngster from Emma at clipclop traders. She is very honest and easy to deal with, thoroughly recommend her. If she hasn't got what you want she'll try and find it. Worth giving her a call.

I have an 8yo coloured mare for sale, not done a huge amount, but jumps, dressages and hacks without doing anything silly, not too expensive either!

Failing that try Fiona Hobby in Wilts.

What area are you looking in? Looked at some horses yesterday for a client. One 6 yr old, grey IDxTB superb jumper and lovely temp/attitude but not the prettiest and also a very smart coloured 4 yr old, broken recently and a very nice type with excellent limbs and pot for 2 *. Not too expensive. PM me for details.
