4. ‘Fantastic’

Height: 16.1hh

Gender: gelding

Age: seven

Selling points: “This horse has been in the same home since he was six months old. He was shown successfully as a youngster. He has been produced slowly and correctly, and currently competes in unaffiliated competitions up to 90cm. He could easily affiliate with some more experience as he has all the scope and power you could ever want. He loves cross-country and schools very well. He is quirky and full of character, so is not a novice ride. He can nap with less confident riders on hacks but is lovely once away from the yard, and is snaffle mouthed even when jumping. He is always perfect to clip and catch. He is strong on the ground and requires a chifney. At four he was diagnosed with bone spavins in a back hock — this has been managed with steroid injections and Tildrin for the first year and since been untouched. It does not affect him in any way and he loves working, however he will not pass a flexion test and has occasional stiffness. This condition may still resolve as the spavins can fuse.

5. ‘Sweet and safe’

Height: 12.2hh

Gender: mare

Age: 12

Selling points: “This lovely sweet, safe lead-rein pony is a gentle mare who loves human company. She has taught an absolute beginner to ride, hack and jump. She is good to do in every way. Merrylegs will happily travel alone in a trailer, and is good to shoe and clip. She has never been sick, sorry or had laminitis and has been to many local shows and is impeccably behaved. She is never fizzy and will happily hack on roads and open fields without any fuss. She has been led off 16.2hh geldings and in-hand. She will happily trot, walk and canter without any issues whatsoever.”
