screen-shot-2016-10-18-at-10-21-33

Height: 16.1hh

Age: 11

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “This is an eye-catching and athletic horse who has done a bit of everything, including Riding Club area dressage, one-day events and showjumping qualifiers. He has eight BD points and is RoR registered, however we feel he is happiest going across country. He is working well over fences and is bold cross-country — he has gone clear around BE80/90 tracks with ease in a snaffle bridle with scope to go much further. He is clean limbed with no vices and has seen hounds. He rides out alone or in company and will also lead. Fit and ready to go.”

2. ‘Loads of potential’

Height: 15.1hh

Age: seven

Gender: mare

Selling points: “This talented retrained racehorse has good conformation and moves well. She has been brought on slowly over the summer and has been lightly competed. She has been placed at dressage shows and in the show ring. She has lots of potential on the flat and has a scopey jump.”

3. ‘Genuine and sound’

Height: 16hh

Age: 14

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “‘Rio’ definitely doesn’t behave like a thoroughbred. He is one of the calmest horses on the yard and takes everything in his stride. He has done some eventing in the past and a lot of showjumping with his previous owner. Recently he has also done some prelim BD. He loves to hack with or without company, has no vices and isn’t spooky. He’s never sick or sorry, just a very genuine horse who I have felt comfortable putting my six-year-old niece on for a walk, but he will also take it up a notch if asked. RoR eligible.”

4. ‘Will turn his hand to anything’

Height: 16.1hh

Age: 10

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “‘Kudu’ is a loving horse looking for a fun home. We have taken him cross-country and to a few small jumping shows where he jumped everything in front of him with no issues. His flatwork is coming along nicely, but does need some work. He is RoR eligible and has the potential to do well in this sphere as he is a lovely big horse with looks to die for. A true gent to handle, clean legged and no vices.”

5. ‘Excellent prospect’

screen-shot-2016-10-18-at-10-54-07

Height: 16.1hh

Age: 10

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “Frazer (Pair Of Kings) is a lovely well-mannered horse who was raced until he was four-years-old. Over the past four years he has been produced slowly but correctly. He has three beautiful, established paces and a very scopey jump. Frazer loves cross-country, taking everything in his stride and jumps everything willingly. He is very easy to do and is very genuine and willing. He is always snaffle mouthed. He is a thoroughbred so obviously not a novice ride. He hacks out alone or in company (prefers company) and will go in front or behind. He can be a little nervous but does well with plenty of encouragement and reassurance from his rider. ”

6. ‘True gentleman’

screen-shot-2016-10-18-at-11-40-01

Height: 16hh

Age: nine

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “I bought ‘Kiwi’ from my place of work in April straight off the race track. This horse is good in every way and I only have positive things to say about him. I rode him when he was in training and he was very sensible both on the yard and on the gallop. He retired but not through injury. Since April I have schooled him where he has proved his huge potential in dressage. I have also competed him in combined training, showjumping and a one-day event where he came eighth. He loves jumping and has scope to burn. He also tries hard in the cross-country. All he needs is more experience and he will be a fab little competition horse at the lower levels.”
