3. ‘Mini superstar of the future’

screen-shot-2016-11-18-at-16-01-42

Height: 15.1hh

Age: three

Gender: mare

Selling points: “This lovely little horse, with her temperament, talent and breeding, has a very exciting future in either showjumping or eventing. She’s bold, scopey and incredibly careful. ‘Lou’ has superb bloodlines. Her sire OBOS Quality 004, by the renowned Quick Star, competed up to grand prix and Nations Cup level showjumping and has produced many international jumpers. Her dam sire, Maltstriker, was known for his technique, speed and competitive edge. This little mare is sure to go a long way and would make a great junior horse. She has an outstanding temperament — very laid back, kind, sweet and honest. She’s good to shoe, catch, load, travel, bath and to handle in every way; the perfect project for an ambitious young rider. I can not emphasise enough how easy she is, such a pleasure to have on the yard. Ready to be broken and get going over the winter ready for next season. She has good conformation and clean limbs.”

4. ‘Fantastic prospect’

screen-shot-2016-11-15-at-14-35-27

Height: 16.1hh

Age: four

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “This KWPN is by Johnson who is a son of Jazz, and is out of a dam by Gribaldi. ‘Handsome’ was imported from Holland at the end of June and he has been professionally backed and produced. He has only been under saddle for two months and not rushed. He has three impressive naturally uphill paces, is a forward-thinking ride and very quick to learn. Handsome has been to a dressage arena hire where these pictures were taken and he behaved impeccably and travelled quietly. On 31 October he was taken to a showjumping arena hire and he had a great time being bold into the jumps — he wasn’t fazed by anything in the arena. He is good and easy to do in all ways and is now looking for a competent, knowledgeable person to love him and continue his education. Handsome is still a little immature physically and green to ride and this is reflected in his price. He is a proper sports horse and in the right hands he will have a very bright future. Everything you face him with he tries his hardest to please and gets better and better. Not only would he make a lovely dressage horse but I also think he will be a great eventer. He is clean limbed and vice free.”

This filly is full of presence, moves freely and straight and has the breeding to potentially make a top class showjumper or eventer.”
