If you are a big fan of Connemaras, take a look at this selection of  for sale on the Horse & Hound website this week.

1. ‘Super potential’

Height: 15hh

Gender: gelding

Age: four

Selling points: “Dolan Jack is a talented registered Connemara, with three uphill, straight paces and a big, bold jump. He is currently being broken slowly and correctly and he has a fantastic attitude to work. Jack is a real pleasure to ride on the flat and over fences — he has a very trainable brain. He hacks alone and in company and will live in or out. He has no lumps or bumps, great conformation with lovely strong feet (he’s currently barefoot), and is good on the ground. He recently went to his first show coming home with two seconds in a open ridden and open in-hand class and behaved really with the whole experience, taking it all in his stride. Jack is a real people person and loves attention and fuss. He has been ridden by a range of riders from nervous to experienced, and he is not nasty at all — doesn’t buck, rear or bolt, but due to his age and having a massive amount of potential it would be better if he went to a home where it would used or at least have a rider who would help bring the best out in him,. He is a real star of the future in any field. Jack would be a fantastic plaited working hunter pony as he is very flashy with a scopey jump.”
