Height: 16.2hh

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “This horse has real presence and would make a great working hunter or eventer. He is now backed and hacking out on his own, showing a lovely attitude. He is a very balanced, armchair ride with uphill paces. He is popping over small fences, showing a lovely jump too. He has clean legs and plenty of bone. This is a lovely, young horse with a great future ahead of him. He has been to a few unaffiliated showjumping shows and behaves like a pro. A really smart horse with a quick, intelligent brain and no vices.”

Height: 16.2hh

Gender: gelding

Age: eight

Selling points: “This is a very exciting and exceptionally good looking KWPN gelding by Douglas, who is by the prolific showjumping sire Darco. This fun horse is a great mover with very good flatwork and real wow-factor. He has had a very good all-round education — he has hunted, team chased, lightly shown and competed BS (British Showjumping), winning £638 and 404 points. He has had double clears in both newcomers and Foxhunters, proving extremely careful with plenty of scope and is quick against the clock. Douglas shows a super technique and will be capable of jumping 1.30m tracks easily in the future. He has very good uphill paces and would do a lovely dressage test. He is sound with no vices and good clean limbs. He is a very affectionate horse who is good to hack, shoe, catch, clip and travel. Fit and can be seen currently competing.”

Selling points: “This Welsh section A has fantastic breeding on both sides. She is well put together, with great bone and has straight and true to type movement. She has a super temperament and is easy to handle, load, bath, trim and for the farrier. This filly is ready to start her in-hand season. She was shown lightly and successfully as a foal and yearling at county level and has matured well. She will make a super ridden pony in the future.

5. ‘Ultimate pony’

Height: 14.1hh

Gender: gelding

Age: 11

Selling points: “Rou has three good paces and a phenomenal jump. He is established on the flat doing all lateral movements and is incredibly athletic and scopey with a careful technique. Rou has competed to one-star level British Eventing, going double clear. He has competed in a number of pony trials and under-18 novice classes. He is very bold and jumps anything put in front of him. He is jumping 1.40m tracks regularly at home and would very much excel at BS — he is sure to be a top track pony. We have owned Rou since he was three. He was backed and produced by a child, who at 16, has now outgrown him. He is the ultimate competition pony and is good to shoe, box, clip and hack. He was hunted as a five-year-old with the Cattistock jumping ditches, rails and hedges.”
