    Selling points: “Dreamer, a registered New Forest is a very special horse having taken my son from his 14hh pony to horses. He is big enough to take an ever-growing child out of pony classes yet with a pony’s head to help out when a rider is unsure. They have had many successes, including qualifying in their first year for the Pony Club (PC) championships in the 90cm eventing. They have also done 1m (PC intermediate) eventing. Dreamer is able to produce a nice dressage test, she is a careful showjumper and keen across country to make it inside the time. She is still young and full of potential, however is also able to look after the rider and be a schoolmaster. She lives out or in and is good in a field with others. Dreamer has been ridden by a variety of riders of different age and levels, giving them confidence and is a pleasure to ride.”

Frank has a huge presence and is well mannered and straightforward. He has three excellent paces and is easy to ride on the flat. Frank is an absolute cross-country machine and is a totally genuine schoolmaster in this sphere. Frank has absolutely no vices. He hacks, turns out, loads and travels either alone or in company (lorry or trailer). He has never been sick or sorry and is the easiest and most sane horse without being boring!”

    Height: 16.1hh

    Gender: mare

    Selling points: “Keatinge Indie is a well put together, striking mare that has successfully competed up to one-star level eventing. This very talented mare has been in the same home since she was three and has been ridden by her current owner since she was six. She is snaffle-mouthed, well schooled and would be an excellent first horse for someone looking to get out and have some fun. She would also suit a mother-daughter share or someone coming off of a pony as she is so rideable. She has a good, bold jump and no vices being good to clip, load and travel.”
