She loves every aspect of work and likes to get on with things, she is also very sensible and not spooky or silly. Sally has hunted and enjoys jumping. She would suit a confident rider who wants a best friend to have fun with.”

4. ‘Fantastic cob’

Screen Shot 2016-03-03 at 17.32.10

 

Height: 153.5cm

Age: seven

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “I have to emphasise that this is a very very sad sale of a super young cob and the only reason he is for sale is because I don’t think I deserve such a wonderful young chap as I just don’t have the time. ‘Chocolate Magnum’ is a lightweight cob (Welsh part bred) who has a massive personality and amazing character. He is well schooled on the flat, but has also recently been to a couple of clear round unaffiliated jumping competitions. He does enjoy to jump although he needs more experience. Magnum was lightly shown last season season and has been well placed with super comments from judges. He has been cross-country schooling once over the winter and thoroughly enjoyed it!”

5. ‘Handsome’

Screen Shot 2016-03-03 at 17.34.05

Height: 16.1hh

Age: 13

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “This horse is looking for a quieter life hacking and going to the odd show. He is not your usual thoroughbred; you can pick him up and drop him with no bother and will look after a novice rider. He is sound, fit and well but does not enjoy schooling. Hacks alone and in company.”
