Height: 14.2hh

Gender: gelding

Age: nine

Selling points: “Shanbo Dun has competed up to BE (British Eventing) novice level very successfully and is a cross-country machine. He is also very genuine and forgiving, and is snaffle mouthed at all times. Out of nine novice completions, he has jumped nine clear cross-country rounds and five double clears. Shanbo has won at unaffiliated eventing and has competed unaffiliated dressage and showjumping successfully. He has been BS (British Showjumping) on a ticket and has jumped well in 1.05m classes. He has massive potential on the flat, previously scoring a 28.8 at BE novice level and consistently scoring low to mid 30s, but is just looking for the right rider to be able to get the best out of him. Shanbo is easy to clip, load, shoe, hack and so on and is a joy to have on the yard.”

Height: 14.2hh

Gender: mare

Age: eight

Selling points: “Smartie has won unaffiliated eventing and showjumping and has masses of potential on the flat, often scoring high 20s eventing. Out of 12 events, she has jumped eight double clears. This includes being placed second in her first BE novice. She has also had seven top 10 placings and is a real eye-catcher. She is always a snaffle mouth and is good to hack alone or in company. Smartie would also excel at pure showjumping as she has bags of scope and is very speedy. She would be a real team prospect and would give anyone years of fun and success. Smartie is good to shoe, clip, catch and load.”
