Elite Equine


About Us

Elite Equines is a leading horse dealer based in Runwell, Essex. We pride ourselves on only offering the highest quality of horses and ponies for sale.

We are open seven days a week, however, due to high demand and our heavy workload, we must insist that visitors are by appointment only please. Feel free to contact us and made an appointment to view, any time between 9 am and 5 pm, Monday to Sunday. By offering an appointment only service we can ensure that you are given our 100% attention.

When you arrive for your appointment at our Essex based yard you can expect to see a large selection of horses and ponies. You can reasonably expect that we will have a horse or pony to suit your ability, whether you are a novice rider or an experienced rider.

Choosing Your Horse / Pony

You can rest assured that if we don't think your choice is the right one, we will say. We take great pride in all of our horses and ponies and not only do we want you to be happy but it is very important to us that our horses and ponies are going to settled homes where they will continue to be loved and cared for.

Although we have various breeds to choose from, our speciality is Welsh Ponies and Cobs. Indeed, when we are not selling our horses we are showing them at both local and county shows. We have been very successful over the years and this year has proven to be the same, winning at the welsh medal show this year and being supreme champion over ten times!

We are a conscientious, family run business that has been trading for over ten years.  We take great pride in all of our horses and ponies and make every effort to be the 'dealers who make a difference'; we feel that we are selling horses and ponies out of our home and into yours - if yours is the right home.

Buy With Confidence

All of our horses and ponies that we have for sale are open to any vetting. We arrange for our animals to be Strangles tested both before entering our yard and again before leaving; just one more thing you don't have to worry about when you buy from Elite Equines.

As well as horses and ponies for sale we do consider part exchange and so please feel free to contact us with details.

We endeavor to offer a professional and friendly service to all of our customers and we are always at the end of the phone if you need any after sales support.

All Horses Guaranteed

All of the ponies sold out of Elite Equines are accompanied with their own 7 day guarantee. Your guarantee is printed on your receipt and is dated and signed on the day you take your new friend home.  We ask that you use 7 days to put your new horse or pony through it's paces and be sure that he or she is right for you. 

If for any reason you feel that you made the wrong choice and things are not quite right for you then we are happy that you return to us and part exchange for a more suitable horse of pony of the same value.  Unfortunately, in the case that an animal has sustained an injury whilst in your care then we cannot consider this as grounds for return.  The only condition we have is that a Strangles test must be completed before returning to us. As you might expect, please consult with us in order that we can make an appointment for you.

Strangles testing can be arranged with your vet and the results are generally received back within 78 hours. The test is a simple blood test and is completed within minutes. If you have arranged to exchange your horse or pony we will need to see the result certificate before arranging an appointment for you.
