Height: 16.1hh

Age: seven

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “‘Roo’ is a dun Irish horse with the most superb temperament teamed with a lovely genuine nature making him a lovely horse to have around. He would excel in any sphere with his level head and trainable attitude. He absolutely loves to jump and will do anything to help his rider out, happily jumping courses of 90cm/1m but showing lots more scope over bigger fences at home. This horse is a cross-country machine who doesn’t look at any fence — he is schooling over BE90 and BE100 fences with absolutely no issues and is ready to compete at BE90 level where he is sure to produce double clears. He has three lovely balanced paces and is always snaffle mouthed whatever discipline he is taking part in — he is light in the hand and responsive to the leg aids without being sharp. Easy to do.”

3. ‘Straightforward and unspoilt’

Screen Shot 2016-08-30 at 14.19.40

Height: 16hh

Age: five

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “This eye-catching horse by Grafenstoltz is super brave and has shown lots of potential so far in few outings. His dressage marks are improving and are in the low 30s and he is yet to incur a jumping penalty across country. He is home-bred and was professionally broken in 2014 and then turned away. He has been carefully produced on the flat and over jumps since May 2015, and hacked out alone and in company by a mature lady owner. This is a very straightforward and unspoilt young horse with a snaffle mouth and great conformation and legs. He has cross-country schooled to BE100 level and easily showjumps courses at this level and higher at home including a wide variety of fences. He has three good paces and can gallop! Easy to do.”

He is brave, jumping water, ditches and hedges no problem. He is a type that doesn’t come around very often, and will make a serious eventing prospect or competition horse. Easy to do with manners to burn.”
