Screen Shot 2016-01-11 at 15.48.55

Height: 18hh

Age: seven

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “‘Skippy’ is a type hard to find. He is as genuine as the day is long and an absolute gent in all ways. He is in his second season hunting with the Meynell and South Staffs (references available). He crosses all of our hunting country with ease, jumping hedges, rails, walls, gates and ditches. Despite his size, he is still full of blood and a real galloping horse. He has also showjumped, cross-country schooled, team chased and competed in some unaffiliated dressage competitions successfully. He is superb to do in all ways.”

Screen Shot 2016-01-11 at 16.08.24

Height: 17.1hh

Age: six

Gender: mare

Selling points: “This mare turns head everywhere she goes. She has a very kind temperament and is not at all mareish. She loves to jump — jumps anything cross-country but is careful enough to do pure showjumping. She has whipped-in and has also hunted in the field. She stands perfectly at the meet and would suit anyone for hunting. She is a fantastic mover and covers the ground with ease so could also event.”
