Height: 16.3hh

Gender: gelding

Age: 13

Selling points: “Cookie has a great attitude towards his work. He is a super hunter, a real arm chair ride and he has great technique over a fence, jumping hunt jumps, hedges and rails. He has BE (British Eventing) evented and really enjoys doing working hunters, showjumping, dressage and cross-county. He is very well schooled on the flat and works in a natural outline. He would be a top class riding club horse and has been on pleasure rides and hunt rides and is very enjoyable jumping everything we come to. Cookie is very easy to do in and out of the stable and is good to shoe box and clip. He is excellent in heavy traffic and goes everywhere on his own or in company.”

Height: 17hh

Gender: gelding

Age: 13

Selling points: “This super horse has had a very successful showjumping career with a good record in Ireland jumping up to 1.35m classes. More recently he has been very successful in the show ring, winning numerous show hunter classes, and qualifying for the Royal International Horse Show (RIHS) for middleweight and amateurs in 2016 and 2017, and was reserve champion at Perth Show in 2017. He is a lovely light and responsive ride with an expressive trot and armchair canter. He would suit an amateur or young rider looking to jump bigger classes, or equally would suit a showing home. A genuinely multi-talented horse who will give his next rider lots of fun and success.

5. ‘Smart and athletic’

Height: 16.2hh

Gender: mare

Age: six

Selling points: “This beautiful mare has been produced slowly and has all of the right attributes to be a top class event horse. With her previous owner she competed in two BE90 classes, placing fourth in her second outing in 2017. Lottie has an extravagant trot and a good canter. She is athletic and covers the ground. She has plenty of wow-factor and will produce a very smart test at top level in time to come. She is bold and particularly careful. She loves her jumping and has plenty of scope with a great hind leg over a fence. Although slightly green at times, she is ready to start the 2018 event season, gain experience, mileage and excel up the grades. She would be an exciting mare for any professional to add to their string with plenty of talent and potential for the future.”
