2. ‘Lovely’

Height: 14.2hh

Age: six

Gender: mare

Selling points: “This mare is 100% level headed and safe — she is a very easy pony to do, the type you can pick up and put down and she doesn’t have a buck or rear in her. She is 100% to hack alone and in company and is excellent in traffic and open spaces. She is brave and straight over fillers and cross-country fences and is currently hunting with the Fernie and Cottesmore. She works sweetly on the flat and is a very straightforward ride and forward going to a fence. She is vice free, lives in or out and is quiet enough to be purely a happy hacking pony, but talented enough to excel as an eventing or show pony.”

Height: 14.1hh

Age: nine

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “This is a really nice sort with excellent conformation. He is really eye-catching and lives in or out — he isn’t precious or spoilt. He has hunted the past three seasons with the East Kent Hunt with West Street. He was out 22 days last season alone and references from the hunt secretary are available. He has done PC camp and multiple rallies and will happily hack alone or in company. He is good to clip, shoe and travel. He is not too forward going, but can be strong out hunting so isn’t a novice ride. He loves his jumping and hunting — will do gates and go off on point without a problem. He is a very honest jumper and will jump hedges, ditches and rails with plenty of scope.”

He has won a BE90 and is always in the ribbons, representing his Pony Club at the PC championships. He has no vices and is good to hack. He lives in 10 star luxury and will happily stay in when the fields are wet but also loves to go out and play. He has a mare field companion and isn’t bothered who he’s sharing a field with. This is a genuine and heart-wrenching sale of a much loved pony.”
