If want to impress the judges, take a look at this selection of dressage horses for sale on the Horse & Hound website this week.

1. ‘Schoolmaster’

Height: 16.1hh

Gender: gelding

Age: 12

Selling points: “This KWPN gelding is a kind and reliable lower level schoolmaster, who has competed up to elementary level BD (British Dressage). He has some minor, manageable issues which have not prevented him doing his job consistently and this is reflected in price. This lovely horse has so much to offer and is only for sale due to lack of time and change in circumstances.”

2. ‘Quality

Height: 15.2hh

Gender: gelding

Age: 12

Selling points: “Brenin is powerful and robust with a leg in each corner. He oozes presence and a real ‘X Factor’ quality. Brenin is a light and responsive ride with three uphill, balanced paces. He is straightforward and a pleasure to work with because he genuinely loves what he does. He is well schooled on the flat and shows good lateral work, collection and extension. He also has an established Spanish walk which he just loves to show off! Brenin has a lot to teach a competent rider who is eager to learn and improve. He is excellent to hack and has been in the same home for six-and-a-half years where he has been enjoyed as a leisure horse for mostly hacking and schooling. For this reason he is low mileage competitively but I see no reason why he wouldn’t have a strong competitive career ahead of him with the right rider. In the few outings he has had Brenin has competed to novice level dressage and has won out showing. Brenin would best suit a positive rider and would not be suitable for a complete novice or as a first horse. No vices.”

3. ‘Talented’

Height: 16.1hh

Gender: gelding

Age: eight

Selling points: “Dennis is a stunning gelding with three correct, balanced paces and established lateral work at elementary level. He has a loose and powerful walk with over track gaining good marks from all judges. He is currently competing at BD elementary level and training at medium at home. He recently did his first unaffiliated medium test scoring 65%. He is part of the BD youth B squad and was recently selected for the BD foundation academy. Dennis has competed in all three disciplines (winning his arena at Pony Club area 90cm eventing in 2017), but my daughter has concentrated on dressage over the past year as this is her strength. He would be an ideal mother/daughter share as he is currently competed by a small (5ft) rider. He hunted in his previous home. Dennis is the love of the yard, full of character. He is good to shoe, box, clip and hacks alone and in company. This is a very hard sale of a much loved horse.”

Dressage horses for sale

Height: 16hh

Gender: gelding

Age: five

Selling points: “This British bred, pink-papered Hanoverian bay gelding has three correct, basic paces, with a huge trot and canter. He is a compact, deep-bodied horse with good bone and correct conformation. He still has some growing to do. He is a pleasure to compete, and has achieved six wins in six BD outings with 22 points. He has competed at novice, currently schooling at elementary. He is happy to hack both alone and in company, always snaffle mouthed even on the gallops at a racing yard we visited. He has attended clinics and taken part in pleasure rides. He travels in a trailer or lorry and will stand at the trailer all day while at shows. He is good to clip, shoe and bath; he adores being pampered and spending time with you. He is a really straightforward, kind horse with a lovely friendly character. Not spooky or silly; everyone’s favourite. Iggy is a pleasure to own and will only be going to the very best of homes. He has no vices and is fit and ready to go.”

5. ‘Fabulous

Dressage horses for sale

Height: 16hh

Gender: mare

Age: nine

Selling points: “This mare has Sandro Hit lines. She has three big paces and is well established at novice level and is working at elementary level at home. She consistently wins at novice level and has started competing in elementary tests with good scores. She hacks out and will pop a ditch/log. She is a member of a quadrille team and is good to catch, shoe and load. She would suit someone who wants a quality horse to do well with at dressage.”
