Selling points: “Kilcooley Michael is a super event horse who has been slowly produced by a semi-professional lady rider from being broken in up to international two-star level (new three-star level). He is a very consistent jumper with three lovely paces. He loves his job and is very willing and honest. He gives a huge amount of confidence to his rider on the cross-country and showjumping, making him an ideal junior horse. Michael is a home-bred gelding with lovely breeding. Due to financial reasons he has run in a few events during the 2018 season but he has been double clear in all his one-star (new two-star) runs.

Selling points: “I have had Rosie for nearly two years and she’s filled me with confidence and taught me unforgettable skills. She jumps comfortably at 90cm and has the ability to go much further with the right person. Her scope is unbelievable and she makes a lovely shape over a jump. She won the Pony Club (PC) 80cm regional grassroots eventing championships last summer and has been placed in BE80s. She has great flat work and would be able to go to a pure dressage home too. She is a dream to hack out so would suit a mother/daughter share as she is big but not strong. She is a well-mannered, loving horse in the stable and at competitions she is so relaxed. She has competed with the PC and been to lots of rallies. She has also done three BE camps to date, one being in march this year. She is great with traffic and used to all farm machinery and animals. She has never been sick or sorry and can quite happily live on grass and hay alone.”
