Selling points: “This horse has 22 BE points, having been placed in the top 10 in every single novice BE (British Eventing) competition. He has had one intermediate novice run, finishing second and he won his most recent novice and also qualified for the novice regional final at Keysoe. He is now easily ready for intermediate. He is really scopey with a can-do attitude and desire to please. Very consistent in his flat work, never hot headed and has lovely natural, uphill movement. He is 100% safe to clip, catch, in the box, and a delight to hack. He has never been lame or unwell, totally uncomplicated in every way – just one of life’s very very good guys.”

4. ‘Truly special’

Height: 16.2hh

Gender: gelding

Age: eight

Selling points: “A lot of fun is waiting to be had with this truly special horse. Nemo has competed up to BE novice last year gaining himself one BE point. He has fantastic, athletic paces along with a natural, scopey jump that would be good enough for pure British Showjumping (BS) or that could alternatively take him much further on in his BE career. He is also an excellent hunter, having hunted for the past three seasons. Nemo is good to do in all respects — he hacks alone or in company, goes first or last, is a calm customer, and is never strong or silly. A total gentleman, with a lot to give.”

5. ‘Stunning’

Height: 16.2hh

Gender: gelding

Age: 13

Selling points: “This striking horse is a true grassroots schoolmaster. We have owned him since he was a four year old. His BE record speaks for itself with consistent double clears in his past three seasons of eventing. He has been placed at both BE90 and BE100 and is a jumping machine with a beautiful technique. He has stunning paces and could do pure dressage, amassing 15BD points in limited outings. Equally he could excel at BS and is the most straightforward ride across country you could ever dream of. He has a lovely temperament and has no vices.”
