1. ‘Worth his weight in gold’
Selling points: “This horse is a very quiet confidence giver. ‘Danny’ is a stunning Irish gelding, that is a quiet horse and will suit a novice rider, mother/daughter share or riding school. He is a star hacking – good in traffic, he knows all kind of farm machinery and he hacks out alone or in company. Danny is schooled on the flat, over coloured poles and over cross-country fences. He is honest, brave and always willing to please. He’s doing lovely flat work, has a soft snaffle mouth and rides into a nice outline. Danny is jumping up to 90cm, he has hunted and done charity rides. He is a pleasure to work with and a friendly horse with a lovely nature. He is easy to shoe, box, catch, clip, ride and in traffic. He can be ridden on the buckle down the road – he is an absolute star! Danny is a horse hard to find and definitely worth his weight in gold. He has no stable vices and is open to any vetting.”

Selling points: “‘Thunder’ is a super flashy looking chap that will make a great child’s competition or Pony Club pony. He is schooling very well in all three paces, with a snaffle mouth at all times – he never gets strong or silly and is light and respectful to the hand and leg. He pops around a small course of fences and is not at all fazed by coloured or rustic fences. He hacks out alone or in company, will go first or last and is good with traffic. He has been previously shown and has been to the beach. Thunder is such a sweet, honest pony, who is so willing to please.”

Selling points: “This pony has been a genuine all-rounder. He loves to jump, will hack out alone or in company, has hunted previously and is a great, fun, forward ride so no novices please. He is a wonderful character that the whole family will fall in love with. He is good to load and travel, is good for farrier and has always been kept barefoot.”

4. ‘Mother’s dream’
Selling points: “Meet ‘Saffy’, the superstar pony that’s fabulous in every way. Saffy hacks exceptionally well, completely safe in open spaces and the heaviest of traffic. She hunts very well, is fabulous to handle and never sick or sorry. Saffy has taken her current rider from un-confident and incredibly nervous to having had the best time and most wonderful experiences, including unaffiliated shows, hunting, cross-country schooling, beach rides and much more.”

5. ‘Rare opportunity’
Selling points: “We have had ‘Cranny’ since he was three. He is 100% in every way and safe on the roads, at the beach and in the forest. He has no vices, and is a very easy, gentle horse. He is for sale due to downsizing our trekking/holiday business.”
