4. ‘Bred for the job’

Screen Shot 2016-03-22 at 17.18.12

Height: 16.1hh

Age: four

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “This quality homebred gelding is out of a thoroughbred National Hunt mare, by a young eventing stallion with Jumbo and Primitive Rising bloodlines. He was broken in the autumn and is riding well. He has hacked and started jumping, proving to have a bold and 100% genuine disposition. He has a very kind temperament and has huge potential for the future and BYEH classes.”

5. ‘Super Appaloosa’

Screen Shot 2016-03-22 at 17.23.29

Height: 15.1hh

Age: 10

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “This horse has done all Riding Club activities with an amateur rider. He loves to jump and is super to hack alone and in company. He works in a nice outline in walk and trot but he has an extremely sensitive mouth and can be fussy in the canter. He is ridden in a snaffle and moves beautifully. Once he is used to his rider he is like a dobbin.”

6. ‘Will give everything a go’

Screen Shot 2016-03-22 at 17.26.07

Height: 16hh

Age: eight

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “‘Samson’ is an Irish cob. We purchased Samson for our riding school and were told he just required turn out as had become grumpy in stable living in full time. He has been great for two weeks — schooling, hacking and even has been cross-country. However he has now become quirky and has been known to buck and become tense while schooling for no apparent reason. He will come right in no time at all for an experienced rider — he just needs riding through it with someone who isn’t fazed by his behaviour. He has never bolted or reared. He has a super, brave jump over showjumps and cross-country fences and would easily hunt.”
