3. ‘Real confidence-giver’

Screen Shot 2016-02-22 at 15.28.30

Height: 16.2hh

Age: eight

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “This horse would make a super amateur’s or young rider’s horse. He knows his job and is incredibly genuine to a fence. He has jumped up to BS foxhunter level, proving sensible enough to be a first competition horse but is also talented enough for a competitive amateur. He works well on the flat and is always in the ribbons at local dressage competitions. He has done some cross-country proving to be bold and brave with potential to event. Good to do.”

4. ‘Uncomplicated’

Height: 15.3hh

Age: 10

Gender: mare

Selling points: “This horse finished her short racing career at four-years-old (only ran three times) and has since been professionally schooled and competed successfully in all disciplines. Would be an ideal riding club/Pony Club horse and will compete happily at BE 80-100 level showing scope to progress further. The perfect all-rounder who is fit and ready to compete. A pleasure to work with in the stable.”

Height: 15.3hh

Age: six

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “This horse has active, swinging paces and a fantastic jump. ‘Jack’ has a great outlook on life and a very trainable mind, working correctly on the flat and has scope to burn jumping. He is great across country, jumping banks, ditches and water in his stride. He is great to hack and a gentleman in every respect.”

6. ‘Big engine’

Screen Shot 2016-02-22 at 15.52.11

Height: 16.1hh

Age: 12

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “‘Kai’ has competed up to two-star level eventing but he would be more suited to the lower levels with a confident jockey. He is very well schooled and the judges love him. With a trainable attitude and lovely paces he would easily affiliate and progress through the levels. He is a good showjumper with many clears to his record, including several competitive BS outings. He is a very sound horse and easy to do in every way.”
