2. ‘My daughter’s best friend’

Height: 13.3hh

Age: eight

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “This pony has been a dressage schoolmaster for the past two years for my nervous daughter. He has taken part in the British Young Rider Dressage Scheme (BYRDS), riding club and Pony Club (PC) rallies, camps, pleasure rides, hacking and dressage. He has represented the riding club at area and championship level and has represented our PC at area level. He has also competed in dressage to music and musical rides. He is my daughter’s best friend — he will follow her around across the field to the stable without a headcollar or lead rope! He qualified for the British Riding Clubs (BRC) national championships and came ninth. He is good to lead, in traffic, clip, load, farrier and travels in a trailer or lorry.”

4. ‘Dream pony’

Height: 13.2hh

Age: 12

Gender: mare

Selling points: “‘Polly’ is every girl’s dream pony. She is the prettiest palomino and a brilliant PC pony. She does everything well, is honest and good to jump and would be brilliant as a second pony. Polly has no vices at all — she is easy to catch, boxes well and is a dream to hack and loves being faffed around with (lots of attention!). She loves showjumping and would make a great family pony.”

5. ‘Top class’

Height: 13.1hh

Age: 12

Gender: mare

Selling points: “This lovely, talented pony has it all; exceptional movement, superb jumping ability, correct conformation and consistent, varied competition experience. She has successfully competed on inter-schools teams, PC eventing, showjumping, dressage and regularly hunted with the North Cotswold. She would have the paces, charisma and aptitude to go into pure dressage or showing or equally the scope for British Showjumping (BS). She is good to shoe, in traffic, to catch, box and clip. She is genuine and easy to do and is a seriously exciting competition prospect for a keen junior.”
