Biog & More Information

I'm passionate about horses and working with them every day is such a privilege. As a child it was all I ever wanted to do, and as the years have rolled on, i've found myself a niche in the market. I think I like to call it "Re-cycling", and i'm so lucky that people offer me horses when they're either no longer able to give them what they need, their needs have changed or their lives have taken a turn and the horse no longer has a part in that life. It's very upsetting to part with any animal because it doesn't "fulfill your purpose" and of course, we wouldn't part with our family pets, yet a horse is a different kettle of fish and the guilt involved in passing a horse on is such a huge factor for many people, who feel they've let the animal down.

I feel this is where my strength lies, because over the years i've built a reputation of getting the right horse into the right home. I think a lot of my competitors wonder how I do it, and where the horses go.... But it's so simple. Educating new buyers, helping them to work with horses to get the best from them, putting people in contact with new or previous owners. It all makes sense, and it enables me to source a steady stream of lovely animals, NOT SOURCED IN AUCTIONS or passed about, but from private owners who want the best for their horse and tell me their strengths and weaknesses. Genuine people are willing to make a financial sacrifice if they're confident their horse will be sold on carefully and this is why I can sell them at the prices I do! Of course, you may know us for the work we do starting young horses, just another string to the bow which sets horses on the right path. If I can help you in your horsey life, then contact me for a chat. If you have horses, we have something in common and lots to talk about....

I have several experiences of working with Liz , I have bought a pony from her which was a lovely animal , She knew the history of the pony and had an honest and knowledgable opinion of it . I have also sold a pony to Liz and she ensured he had a good home and sent me photos of his progress. I would not hesitate to use Liz's services again should I be in a position to do so . My experience has been communication with an honest and professional person .

I have not met Liz Leigh of Pocket Nook Farm in person, but many years ago whilst searching for my new equestrian best friend I telephoned Liz to enquire about a horse she had for sale. After much discussion over the telephone where Liz asked about my capabilities, experience, stabling set up she advised me said horse was not suitable for my requirements. And we ended our conversation. Over the years I have heard and seen via Facebook and mutual friends nothing but positive feedback from horses advertised and purchased from Pocket Nook Farm and I wouldn't hesitate to contact Liz again should I be looking to purchase a equine partner.

We bought our 3 year old pony from Liz 4 years ago and I would highly recommend her services and will look to purchase any horses in the future for her . Liz is honest about the horses she sells and will happily tell you about any known vices . There is absolutely no presssure to buy and you are positively encouraged to try the horse as many times as you feel necessary to ensure that the horse and rider are a good fit . With Liz's level of openness and honesty I am quite sure she would happily refuse the sale of a horse if she didn't feel the fit was right . Lovely horses and always sensibly priced .

I have had several ponies from pocketnook farm, our first pony wasn't right for us but Liz bought her back off me with no hesitation and actually helped me find another suitable pony. Currently we have a super safe and reliable fantastic pony which I bought from Liz and he will be with us for a very long time! Liz isn't pushy, when you go to view a horse with her she gives you time to try them out, she never tries to force a sale, she is trustworthy and honest and if you want to buy a horse that is safe as houses in the busiest of traffic then that's what you will get. The difference with Liz is she loves her horses and wants them to go to long term homes.

I sold a pony to Liz as I was struggling to find the right buyer for her and I had nowhere to stable her. I messaged Liz with the ponies details and she came back to me with a price immediately. She was totally honest and explained the reason for her price offer, which I found refreshing. I had sold the pony and cash in my hands within the hour, I have heard nothing but good stories about Liz and her family so I knew the pony would be in the best of hands. It was lovely having peace of mind that the pony would be cared for and trained properly before being advertised, it was also nice to know that Liz would only ensure she is sold on to a good home. 10/10 service and a lovely lady to deal with.

pocket nook I would consider as the most trustworthy and honest dealers I've ever come across. Their horses are cared for 100% and they won't sell something unsuitable to anybody. They really care when it comes to where their horses go. They are by far the best dealers in Manchester and I would always recommend them to anyone first.

After selling privatly i decided to search for my new friend and found pocket nook i went to view a coloured mare she seemed like the perfect match and i took her home... unfortunatly as the months went on myself and my new mare just didnt click she seemed very unsettled and unwilling to work or even want to come off grazing I contacted liz and she responded immediatly and offered to take the mare back. Pocket nook is the only place ive known that will take back a horse if unsuited to the rider and find the correct match for you.

I bought my horse Swift from Liz completely untried and unseen. We had been speaking for a long time about what I hoped for in a horse. I was currently over horsed and she offered to part exchange my then horse for swift. She tried him in a few different settings for me and answered any questions I had before sending him the many miles to me. I was offered a refund period which wasn't needed. He is exactly as described and we have been a happy pair since. I have nothing but praise for Liz.

I accompanied a friend to view a horse for her. The horse was not suitable for my friend due to its size and inexperience. Liz was straight on to this and suggested that this particular horse would not meet her needs.

Ive known Liz for some 25 years, we met through our mutual love of hunting, throughout this time Liz has made her living from selling horses, her lovely daughter is now part of the business too, in this time ive seen many happy customers out hunting on their new horses bought from Liz , we tried a horse that Liz had in and took it away for a few days trial , the horse sadly was not what the rider wanted , it was at the right price ( as are all the horses & ponies ) and as described by Liz , she took it back with no fuss , ive yet to hear a bad story about Pocket nook , you see so much bad feedback on facebook about many others but Liz and Katie just carry on selling and being as honest as they can and its definitely working for them ..
