5. ‘Lovely mare’

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 14.53.09

Height: 15.2hh

Age: 12

Gender: mare

Selling points: “‘Zoe’ was produced to race but never had a racing career. I have owned her for the past seven years. Zoe was my first horse and she has an excellent temperament. She hacks alone and in company and is snaffle mouthed at all times. We have spent the past six years hacking around the Peak District National Park before relocating to Surrey. She is now for sale as I have had a baby and no longer have time for her. She has good paces and a careful jump. She is very easy to handle and will go out with mares, geldings or alone. She can also live out in the summer. We have done lots of road work and she will lead nervous horses who are not used to hacking out.”

6. ‘A lot of potential’

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 14.55.03

Height: 16.2hh

Age: nine

Gender: mare

Selling points: “This horse has been mainly used for dressage but she can also jump and has hunted and done cross-country in the past. She would suit an owner who is into competing as she has a lot of potential to do well in all disciplines. I have owned her for just over a year now and took her to my first dressage competition last June to be placed first with a score of 63.91% and qualified for the Sunshine Tour at Hickstead in September 2015. She is good to do in all ways, a little mare-ish but I believe it’s more her personality! Not a novice ride. She loves to work and responds very quickly to what is being asked of her. A truly beautiful horse with a lot of personality.”
