1. ‘Adorable’

Height: 11.2hh

Age: 10

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “Billy has taken my daughter from only ever being held on a pony to riding competently in a number of disciplines. He is good to handle, box, shoe and clip. In his time with us we have done showing, mini showjumping and my four year old even did her first mini cross-country last week. He has seen traffic/buses and lorries/open fields/woods and he is never sick or sorry.”

4. ‘Fantastic hack’

Height: 14.2hh

Age: 11

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “Dylan is a fantastic hack. He is as safe in traffic as a living breathing animal can be and you can ride him in a busy town. He forward going but not strong but loves his work. He will hack alone or in company and he loves it over any terrain. He is not a plod but is snaffle mouthed and never bucks rears spooks or naps. He is good to catch shoe load have his heels clipped. He is sadly for sale as his elderly owner is too ill to care for him. He has been with him since he was a four year old. ”

6. ‘Great potential’

Height: 15.2hh

Age: seven

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “Marcus gave me a great summer last year. He has done a bit of everything including dressage, showjumping and farm rides. He has three straight paces and a careful jump, even for a nervous jumper like me! Currently not at peak fitness, which is why I am asking the price that I am for him as I am aware that the right person will need to put the work in to bring him back to his full potential. I work full-time and do not have the time he needs to bring him on. He is currently being stabled at a professional yard where they are working with him most days. Marcus is good to clip, load and shoe.”
