Full Advert Details

Oscar is a well bred rising four year old 35-36" registered shetland gelding.
He came to me in September 2020 as a head strong, nervous, uncatchable colt. We gelded him straight away and I have worked with him all winter.
He has improved so much in this time and is now ready to move on to a forever home.

He really enjoys work and doing new things.
I lunged him a few times a week, sometimes with a saddle or roller and side reins. He is long reined with harness and a open bridle at least once per week, sometimes more. He regularly has a pack saddle on for photos. Loves doing pony agility/ handy pony.

Not backed as no suitable sized rider.
He has never been near children so I cannot guarantee him as a child's pony ATM. However with an experienced family he should be fine with positive experiences.
Would also suit an adult for pony agilty or hiking.
Good enough to show to a high level.
He will make a lovely driving pony with further education.

Has only seen light traffic to date on country lanes.
Oscar has learnt to be very patient as I am always taking photos.

Easy to groom, clip, hooves trim, catch, tie up, lead, lunge etc
Spend the winter stabled for education but will live in or out. Out 24/7 since the end of February. Totally ok being grazed with electric fencing.
Regularly walked or driven in hand around our flock of sheep. Currently lives on his own but was previously living his entire life with his smaller brother. Fine with or without horse company as long as he has other animals around him.
So would suit a farm or smallholding due to this.

Wormed, hooves trimmed and tetanus vaccination done.
Good teeth, hooves and conformation. No health issues.

Serious enquiries only please.
Due to his young age he is not suitable for any novice owners.
No offers the price is fixed, no loans, payment plans and you need to arrange your own transport.
Located 10 mins from J48, M4, near Swansea, Wales.

Safety Notice from Pets4Homes - NEVER send money for a deposit or pay for a pet online, unless using our Safe Deposit Service. Read more about it here. ALWAYS visit the advertisers home to view the pet and confirm they are genuine. Before contacting the seller, you MUST read our Pet Buying/Adoption Checklist below.

Horse Buying Checklist

Before contacting or visiting the advertiser for this Shetland. Please make sure you have printed and read this checklist fully. Do NOT buy a horse from the advertiser unless you are happy that they follow all the advice on the list.

  • Do your research first
    Getting a new horse is a massive commitment, so make sure you have researched the breed fully and have the time and commitment necessary to care for the horse. You can read our detailed Information guide about horses for potential new horse owners.
  • Confirm that the advertiser is genuine
    You should verify this by arranging to visit the horse at the advertisers stable, if they make excuses or try to ask for money or a deposit without seeing the horse, or if the advertiser attempts to deliver the horse or meet you at any other location than their own home, then please do not agree to this. NEVER send money online for any horse. Please read our article on avoiding potential scams.
    If you are unsure that the advertiser is genuine, please report them to us.
  • Is the horse over 6 months of age?
    Horses must be at least 6 months old before they can leave their mothers.
  • Check the Health of the horse
    It can be difficult for the average person to check if a horse is healthy or not, so if you decide to adopt or buy the horse, make sure that you get an equine specialist veterinary surgeon to perform a full veterinary assessment of the horse before you agree that you will buy the horse.

Please read visit our Horse Advice section for further information before buying a horse or pony. Here are a few very useful articles you should read first :

1) Buying the Right Horse
2) Getting a Horse or Pony Vetted Prior to Purchase
3) What to Avoid When Buying a Horse
4) Which Horse Breed is Best for Me?
