1. ‘A real head-turner’

Height: 143cm

Age: five

Gender: mare

Selling points: “This Connemara has fantastic conformation and huge movement. ‘Milly’ has been professionally backed and is currently turned away due to a lack of time. She hasn’t been pushed and has been lead around roads and has seen heavy machinery and wasn’t fazed at all. This mare has a massive amount of scope and is good to manage in all ways.

3. ‘Potential FEI pony’

 

Height: 143.5cm

Age: three

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “This is a fantastic opportunity to purchase or loan a sports pony with impeccable breeding and an outstanding temperament. He is a friendly and easy chap to handle, has big, powerful, uphill movements and also loves to jump. He will make an excellent competition pony and in the right hands will excel in any sphere. This is a sad sale of a fantastic pony, but unfortunately I don’t have the time to ensure he reaches his potential.”

4. ‘Rare opportunity’

 

Height: 14.2hh

Age: six

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “This homebred British Sports Pony is a potential FEI dressage or grassroots event pony. ‘Sonny’ has a temperament to die for and is very talented — he is a real head-turner with lovely, active paces. He has been a winner since the start on the flat and is currently on the BYRDS (British Young Rider Dressage Squad) B squad and gained an outstanding 94% at the inter-county earlier this year in his first affiliated competition. He has now won at elementary. He is a very fast learner and 100% trainable. He is now working at medium level at home with established lateral work. He is jumping up to 1m tracks at home, never stops, never strong but is careful and has been placed in unaffiliated showjumping competitions. He has cross-country schooled and was second in his first one-day event with a 28 dressage, double clear. He has also autumn hunted and shown. Good to do.”

5. ‘Stunning’

 

Height: 14hh

Age: five

Gender: mare

Selling points: “This mare has been professionally schooled, and is well established on the flat showing lovely movement and just needs to continue her well-founded education with a competent rider. She has a lovely jump, doesn’t rush the fences and has competed unaffiliated showjumping (70-85 cm with scope for more). She has taken part in clinics, has cross-country schooled over BE (British Eventing) fences. She was also an in-hand show champion last year, and is excellent to hack alone or in company. Easy to catch and shoe. Snaffle mouthed and has hunted in Ireland. She loves her jumping and comes to life in the show ring. She has an unflappable nature, isn’t stuffy and not mareish.”
