    1. ‘Grand prix stallion’

    dressage horses for sale

    Height: 16.3hh

    Gender: stallion

    Age: 12

    Selling points: “This graded stallion has been in the same home since he was four. He has competed up the levels to grand prix and is excellent to hack — he is regularly used to accompany youngsters. He has no stallion behaviour and is a proven sire. He would be an ideal horse for an amateur to progress to the higher levels. He is very well-behaved at shows and is easy for someone to take on their own. He goes out in the field daily next to other horses and has clean X-rays.”

    2. ‘Hugely talented’

    dressage horses for sale

    Height: 16.3hh

    Gender: mare

    Age: 11

    Selling points: “This hugely talented Dutch Warmblood is by United with Negro on her dam line. She is a beautiful mare with three expressive, floaty paces and an outstanding canter. She has well-established lateral work, which she finds very easy, is sweet-natured and trainable. She is good to shoe, hack, travel etc. She is snaffle mouthed, with a lovely soft contact. She has competed to BD Elementary with scores up to 77% and is working at medium level at home. She won her only competition in 2020 with 72+% in a BD Elementary in October 2020. She has low mileage due to her rider’s health condition. In the right hands she could progress up the levels or equally could be a schoolmistress at the lower levels. This is an extremely sad sale of my much-loved horse — she is only for sale as I have cystic fibrosis and she is too big for me to ride. She has an ongoing vet issue which is easily managed, hence why she is offered for sale at a reduced price to the right five- home. She has given me four years of much enjoyment and success at BD, but now needs a new forever home with a rider who can enjoy her as much as I have. No novices please.”

    3. ‘Incredibly talented’

    dressage horses for sale

    Height: 17hh

    Gender: mare

    Age: five

    Selling points: “This is a potentially top class mare that has been carefully produced with the future in mind. She is Zangersheide-bred with exceptional world class bloodlines. She has the potential to excel in any discipline. She is naturally uphill with balanced paces and has real presence and loves her work. She is good to load, hacks on a busy road and is good to shoe. She is very sadly for sale to dissolve a partnership. Fit and ready to go and excel.”

    4. ‘Quality

    dressage horses for sale

    Height: 16.2hh

    Gender: gelding

    Age: rising eight

    Selling points: “This quality Irish Sports Horse mare has three correct, trainable paces. She is 100% genuine and sensible in all ways. She has been in the same home since she was four. She has low mileage due to me having a young family. She is currently working at prelim/novice level. She has successfully competed at county level and is more than ready to affiliate to pursue a career in dressage and/or showing. She hacks alone and in company — she is 100% in traffic and to box, catch, shoe, clip etc. This is a sad sale of the right horse for me at the wrong time of my life. No novices please.”

    5. ‘Incredibly flashy

    dressage horses for sale

    Height: 16.2hh

    Gender: mare

    Age: nine

    Selling points: “This mare is an absolute head-turner. She has the most amazing presence.  She is incredibly beautiful and extremely well put together. She has a very expressive step and movement and three elastic and balanced paces. She has been in the same home for over five years and has competed in British Showjumping up to 1.15m. She is very rhythmical to a fence and neat and careful. She is brave and has good technique. Mini has very established flatwork and would certainly suit a dressage home with her floaty and expressive movement. She is excellent to do in all ways — in the stable, to shoe, travel etc. A forever home is sought and hopefully to stay in contact with the new owners from time to time for this much-loved mare.”
