Who doesn’t love a dun (or buckskin as they should be more accurately described in some cases)? If you’re on the look out for a new horse, why not browse our selection of dun horses for sale this week on the Horse & Hound website?
Selling points: “This pony has hunted and jumps everything. She is bold, willing and well-mannered. She has been to one show and come second in the 80cm class. She has schooled over 1/1.10m courses and is great to hack, shoe, clip and handle. She has good flatwork and is a pleasure to have.”
Selling points: “This is a stunning, quality pony with super movement and presence. He is used in his current home as a riding club and Pony Club (PC) all-rounder. He has attended PC rallies and senior camp and competed on PC and riding club area dressage teams, winning on most occasions. He is a very capable dressage pony who has received scores up to 82% at area competitions (BD listed judges). He has also competed at local combined training competitions, working hunter shows and showjumping competitions including BS (British Showjumping) on a ticket. In a previous home he jumped BS amassing winnings of £1,278 and 1181 points. We hack him out alone or in company and he has also been hunting with us and has attended hunt and pleasure rides. He is good to do.”
3. ‘Simply the best’
Selling points: “This is a completely unspoilt Connemara that is super-talented and ready to go into any sphere. He is a mature five-year-old who has hunted and attended several competitions and has been cross-country schooled. He is quiet to hack, good in traffic and stands still to be mounted. He is easy to box, shoe and catch. This is a stunning looking horse who is sure to catch the judge’s eye. He will excel in working hunter and is easy to school as he learns very quickly and always tries his best. He has an exceptional jump and is very athletic with massive scope.”
4. ‘Great fun
Selling points: “This is a super all-round pony that is enthusiastic, safe, great fun and very young for his age. A great hunter well-known with the Worcester, Croome and Albrighton Woodland hunts. He stands at the meet, is keen but not strong and happy to open gates. Duncan has done all Pony Club and riding club activities including several camps with his previous owner. He is a talented jumping pony and has been in PC area novice teams for both showjumping and horse trials. He will do dressage but it is not his forte although willing to try. He has competed in RC arena eventing placing first and qualifying for national championships, along with numerous other successful outings. He is easy to do and hacks alone or in company. He never bucks, bites, bolts or rears and has never been sick or sorry. Duncan has been a joy to own, he loves life and has bags of personality thoroughly enjoying everything he does just needs a confident, competent rider to maintain a contact over bigger fences so is therefore not a novice ride. Several references available to serious enquiries.”
