Height: 14.2hh

Age: 13

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “‘Cremully Melody’ is a European FEI event pony who competed at Malmö and Millstreet pony European Eventing Championships, being part of the bronze medal winning team and was also called up as first reserve in 2016 after my daughter had only evented him for five months. He is a sound and easy pony who loves to compete and please. He has three fabulous paces, always being near the top after dressage. He is a complete machine cross-country and looks for the flags and would jump anything he is faced at. He is quick across the country and nimble on his feet finding combinations easy but is also able to make horse distances. He is a careful showjumper who wants to please. Melo is easy in every way and such a pleasant pony to have around the yard — the perfect pony for a child looking to make a team.”

Height: 14.1hh

Age: eight

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “‘Strider’ is a pony with big scope who has done unaffiliated showjumping, Pony Club (PC) area eventing, show cross, unaffiliated dressage, PC rallies, some mounted games training and he also qualified for the Dengie PC winter showjumping series. He hunted with his last owner for a season, going out two or three times a week. He is a forward and bold, but safe ride, with a brilliant, natural jump. He will jump hedges, gates, ditches and walls and would do very well in British Showjumping (BS) or British Eventing (BE). Strider hacks out alone and in company, does gates and will stand in the field. He currently lives at livery on a farm, is good with farm traffic, quad bikes, livestock and dogs. He is easy to do, is very affectionate and sweet natured, good to load, clip, and stands calmly for the farrier and dentist. No vices and he is never sick or sorry. Strider is not a novice ride; he would suit a competent teenager or small adult. He is fit and ready to go.”

Selling points: “‘Sky’ is snaffle-mouthed and works nicely in the school. He will make a top show or dressage horse. He is never strong or silly, loves to jump and has a super pop on him. He is great to hack alone or in company and he lives in or out. He has also hunted and competed, has a lovely temperament and he doesn’t need riding every day. He is a pleasure to do and is stunning to look at.”
