1. ‘Exceptional mover’
Selling points: “This filly is an exceptional mover, she has an athletic jump and and a sensible temperament. She has quietly accepted everything she has been taught. She has been backed for two weeks and been on a few short hacks on her own, proving bold and relaxed. She will be turned away to grow now. Once filled out she will be a seriously smart all-rounder.”

She has the best Connemara pedigree; her sire is I Love You Melody, one of the best performance Connemara stallions in the world – he has sired FEI ponies and many show winners.

She has a good jump and jumped up to 1.10m loose – she will jump a course of 90cm at the moment with quality to jump more in the future. She has three nice paces, she is a straight mover with a floating trot and has a comfortable canter. Melody is honest at cross-country – she wants to please the rider and always gives her best!

4. ‘Family friend’
Selling points: “This beautiful 14-14.1hh class one Connemara mare is by Newgrange Dancer (Westside Miriah) out of a Laerkens Cascade Dawn mare. She has done everything including one-day events, showjumping, dressage and most recently a 30k endurance ride. She is lovely on the flat, jumps round a course of fences and fillers. She has a couple of very small sarcoids (they are tiny and have never changed) – this is reflected in her price.”

5. ‘Top jumping pony’
Selling points: “Aoife, a registered Connemara, has been started slowly and correctly. She works well on the flat with established paces. Aoife has an exceptional jump and is extremely bold cross-country; she will jump any fence put in front of her without hesitation. She is a top event potential or grassroots candidate. She hacks alone or in company and is not phased by farm machinery or heavy traffic. She is good to shoe, clip and has been seen by the horse dentist, all vaccinations are up to date. She lives out on her own or with others. She is an affectionate mare with great potential – she will take competent rider a long way.”
