2. ‘Well-mannered’

Height: 16.1hh

Gender: gelding

Age: six

Selling points: “This is a weight carrying, smart hunting cob. He is an active, mobile horse, happy to trot, canter and jump all day long. He is well-mannered, but requires a confident, competent rider as there is a lot of horse. He is brave and happy to have a go, always willing to please. Handy out and about, happy to do gates and wait with companions. Fine to catch, shoe and load. He has spent his life at home on the farm and out hunting, but would be capable of much more.”

3. ‘Quality’

Height: 14.2hh

Gender: gelding

Age: seven

Selling points: “This is a sane and sensible cob who always has a smile on his face. He hacks well alone and in company in the heaviest traffic. He is forward going and always happy to lead the way. He is green in the school as he hasn’t done much but is perfectly willing. He has just started going to some little training shows and jumps quite sweetly, never stopping at fillers. He is easy to do on the ground.”

4. ‘Fantastic’

Height: 16hh

Gender: gelding

Age: seven

Selling points: “This is a handsome, upstanding example of maxi cob type. He has three good paces and a canter that is light and uphill. This super horse is easy to do in every way. He’s straightforward to have about and always cheerful. He is good to clip, shoe, load, hack and hunt. He hacks alone or in company, leaving a large yard of horses without a second thought. He has done a little bit of both showjumping and cross-country. He has also done a number of dressage of tests. His real forte is hunting which he loves and behaves impeccably being both safe and forward going without being strong. He is snaffle mouthed. He really is a type hard to find.
