Flatwork to Fabulous

Coco is forward going and would suit a rider who is capable and keen. She is very able and knows the job to be done. She is 19 years old but in no way shows any signs of ageing and will make her next owners happy rosette winners with plenty of mileage still on her. She keeps very well and is easy to look after. She has been part of the Loch Leven Equine Happy Horse Club getting regular checks. She is fully vaccinated and has had teeth checked annually. Coco lives out all year apart from in winter we stable overnight.

Pony Club Activities

Coco would happily be the demo for equine physio, the little kids practicing bandages or platting at pony camps and she is a trusted lead for other horses. She has done pony club games, tried polo, beach rides, treasure hunts, fancy dress – you name it. Coco was our daughters second pony from age 8 and over the 3 years we’ve owned her she has taught my daughter every discipline jumping from 30cm to 85cm. Our daughter is now too tall for Coco and as such we’ve not jumped her higher to protect her, but if kept fit Coco is comfortable show jumping cross poles to 80cm with the right rider.

Excellent trial facilities at Lindores

Is she the right pony for you? Please contact Anna for video footage and any to ask any questions. Only serious buyers need apply. Coco has completed her final competition with our daughter today and as such she is available to buy (and could make one lucky riders Christmas).

EHV Protocols at Lindores

EHV Protocols at Lindores

Equine Herpes Virus is a virus found in horses all over the world but sadly there have been recent cases in Scotland and Lindores Equestrian want to raise awareness to ensure all customers travelling to and from our venue are aware of the virus and do their bit to stop the spread.

Once a horse is infected, the virus remains in the system and can reactivate in the future. Of the four main types, EHV-1 and EHV-4 are the most common in the UK.

Lindores Equestrian are implementing strict biosecurity protocols to ensure our stabling and facilities are clean and disinfected. However, we need our customers to also do their bit to help stop the spread of the virus.


  • EHV-1 which can cause signs of respiratory disease in young horses (runny nose, coughing, raised temperature), abortion in pregnant mares (usually later in pregnancy and sometimes in large outbreaks involving multiple mares) and sometimes paralysis in horses (of all ages). The virus affects young horses more than older ones. Older horses are less likely to show signs of infection, but are just as likely to spread the virus.
  • EHV-4 which usually only has a minimal effect on breathing and can occasionally cause abortion
  • EHV-3 which is a reproductive disease that causes pox-like lesions on the penis of stallions and the vulva of mares
  • EHV-5 which is associated with an unusual type of lung condition in adult horses

FOR MORE DETAIL ABOUT EHV strains please read the very helpful British Equestrian Federation Website.



  • recent cough of unknown cause
  • recent nasal discharge of unknown cause
  • enlarged lymph notes
  • fever (>28.5 degrees Celsius)
  • recent onset of neurological signs of unknown cause
  • diarrhoea


  • The horses travelling to Lindores Equestrian are not under current investigation for EHV infection
  • have not been in contact with and are not kept on the same premises as a horse known to have or be under investigation for EHV
  • have been resident in the UK for the last 28 days.
  • the temperature of the horse is not >38.5degrees Celsius (is so please do not travel and let us know)

We appreciate you’re doing a lot to comply with our Covid Protocols and now we ask that you are fully aware of the EHV Protocols. Its hard to believe we live in a world where both equestrian and human pandemics can limit our travel and enjoy riding horses but with everyone’s co-operation and the above protocols we will hopefully be able to live with the challenges forced upon us!

When training at Lindores you are agreeing to abide by the above self declaration.

Any questions on the above please don’t hesitate to ask!
