2. ‘Superb’

Height: 16.1hh

Gender: mare

Age: eight

Selling points: “This lovely mare has been there, done it all and got the rosettes! She can turn her hoof to literally any job, with her superb temperament, brilliant conformation, super paces and huge, bold jump. She is a superb hunter, will cross any country, is fabulous at the meet and to queue. She doesn’t get worried in a busy atmosphere and happily jumps timber, hedges, ditches and walls without any hesitation. She has been out hunting with the Rockwood Harriers. Lovely to have on the yard — she’s that quiet you wouldn’t know she was there! No vices, not mareish, 100% to box, shoe and clip, great to hack alone and in company and super in all traffic.

5. ‘Hunter’s dream’

Height: 15.1hh

Gender: gelding

Age: 10

Selling points: “We have had Rusty for four hunting seasons and he has been out almost every Saturday with the Pytchley during this time. He will hunt all day and jump anything, (ditches, rails, hedges) making him a well-known and a reliable lead. He stands quietly at the meet, gate shuts patiently and will go first or last. Although he is a horse in height, he has the sturdiness of a pony and therefore doesn’t need to be wrapped up in cotton wool before or after hunting. He also excels at team chasing and he has competed in all of the Midlands team chases, at novice and intermediate level as lead horse as well as sitting at the back. He was the lead horse of the winning team of the inter-hunt relay at the Peterborough Festival of Hunting in 2014 showing his agility, gate–opening prowess and speed. He is very easy to do, travel, load, clip, shoe and will live in or out in summer and winter. Rusty is forward going an therefore not a novice ride, and he requires a competent and confident jockey, preferably one who will hunt and team chase regularly so he is not wasted. The right jockey will have the best hunting days and come home with a smile every week.”
