screen-shot-2016-09-28-at-13-46-08

Height: 16hh

Age: six

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “This horse is a beautiful, flashy mover with a seriously scopey jump. Only started jumping in the past six months and has taken straight to it. Jumped double clear around two out of three BE90s and also showed serious scope round his first couple of BE100s. He is great across country, being incredibly honest and brave. Totally straight to skinnies and never looks at water, ditches or steps. He is a very natural cross-country horse and will jump whatever you put in front of him. He has more than enough ability to progress through the grades.”

Height: 15.1hh

Age: four

Gender: mare

Selling points: “‘Milly’ is very sensible and has a laid back attitude towards her work. She has been on hound exercise with a 14-year-old girl and is fantastic with hounds. She has been autumn hunting with the York and Ainsty South, she stands quietly and is a lovely armchair ride. Milly has been to a show, jumping a double clear around a course of showjumps with fillers. She is very straightforward and loves to jump, showing great technique over a fence including hunt jumps, small hedges and has been cross-country schooled. She hacks out alone or in company, is snaffle-mouthed and doesn’t need to be ridden every day. She is a very easy, kind and gentle horse who is never mareish.”

This summer he has been doing a bit of everything and taking everything in his stride. He scored 68%+ in his first ever dressage test and also completed his first 90cm event, proving mature and keen. He has been cross-country schooling and showjumping proving not to be spooky jumping ditches, steps, fillers and water.
