1. ‘Oozes quality’

Height: 16.2hh

Gender: mare

Age: six

Selling points: “Dolly is a registered Irish draught mare that oozes quality and presence. She is well put together, has nice flatwork and carries herself in a good natural outline. Dolly has done a few days hunting in Ireland and has competed at a few small training shows. She has a very nice jump and is totally unfazed by coloured or natural fences. She would be a superb riding club type and should excel at cross-country or showjumping with just a little more schooling. Very good to hack out in traffic — either alone or in company and has a lovely temperament.”

2. ‘A delight

Height: 15.1hh

Gender: mare

Age: 11

Selling points: “Thistle is a warmblood mare that was used as a broodmare and produced two brilliant foals (one of which has qualified for HOYS this year). Once backed she has competed in many disciplines and has excelled in all. She has competed in riding horse showing classes up to county level and is a delight on show days — always in the rosettes, will stand on the box all day and has amazing manners both in and out of the ring. Thistle has a large, scopey jump and never knocks a pole, however can put in a stop at large fillers. She has competed up to 1m tracks with scope to go further, she has qualified for Trailblazers at height 85cm and 95cm. She has been in the Pony Club for three years and has done all PC activities including PC camp for two years, which she loved, and pleasure rides. She has a very natural movement so has competed in area PC dressage, BD dressage (prelim and novice) and has been in the rosettes at all. Thistle has schooled over large cross-country tracks both with pony club and on her own and has completed one one-day event. Thistle is snaffle mouthed at all times, even on beach rides, and she lives on a working farm so is used to all farm traffic. She has no vices and hacks very well in company but not alone – she is nappy due to lack of experience hacking alone. She can live in or out all year and doesn’t need riding every day to keep her sensible.”

Height: 16hh

Gender: gelding

Age: five

Selling points: “Alfonzo is bred to event by Carnival Drum.  He has three good paces, goes nicely on the flat and hacks alone and in company. He has been to clinics and cross-country schooled etc. I took him to a very busy show last week where behaved brilliantly. He is jumping a full course of fillers at 90cm, including  water trays, so is ready to go and compete now. He has no vices and good to do, but he is a young horse so no complete novices please.”

She jumped at Windsor this year with a friend’s daughter and was not bothered by anything. She has hunted in Ireland and previously had a foal. She is very straightforward and genuine, easy to do in every way and is not mareish.”
