Height: 15hh

Gender: gelding

Age: 10

Selling points: “This registered Connemara is anyone’s ride. He has a pony brain, but looks like a smart, small horse. He has a snaffle mouth and has hunted six seasons. He has been ridden by all members of the family, from nine-years-old to nearly 50. He has hunted on Exmoor and Dartmoor (he goes superbly over moorland) and also regularly with the Tiverton and Silverton, plus the odd day with the Cotley, Beaufort, Heythrop and Taunton Vale. He has attended camps and fun rides, he can be ridden alone or in company and can be led out or lead others. He is always the same and doesn’t change if he isn’t ridden for a while. Very low maintenance and good to do.”

Height: 16.2hh

Gender: gelding

Age: nine

Selling points: “This horse has very good bone and hunted the 2016/17 season with the Wilton, enjoying days out with the Ledbury, Portman and Blackmore Vale. He jumps everything, including the vale hedges, with ease. He transforms into the ultimate dressage horse in the summer where the judges love him and he also enjoys showjumping. He has been produced slowly and correctly and occasionally competes at BE90. He is super-safe, sociable and easy to do.”
