1. ‘Ultimate schoolmistress’
Selling points: “This mare has £892 in BS (British showjumping) winnings up to 1.30m and 28 BE (British Eventing) foundation points. ‘Lilly’ is your ultimate schoolmistress. She has the most amazing presence and temperament to match. Having competed BS and BE internationally, she would be the ultimate horse for someone looking to be safe, while not compromising on talent and ability. Lilly is a straightforward ride, elegant on the flat and established as you would expect. She takes you to a fence confidently and is bold and careful and has masses of scope and ability. She has previously won a puissance jumping 1.80m! She never says no. Having masses of eventing experience she is excellent cross-country, jumping ditched, logs etc. She has competed internationally at CCI2*-L again, carrying a rider around with ease. Lilly is an affectionate mare and not at all mareish. Lovely to have around on the yard, she is good to stable, turnout and is respectful on the ground. She is excellent with all the usual, tacking up, grooming, shoeing, clipping (without a headcollar needed!) and dentist. She loads and travels well. She is excellent to hack, both alone or in company — so much so, she is safe enough for a novice to hack. She doesn’t get strong or silly at all and is good in heavy traffic and open spaces. Lilly would suit a competent junior moving onto horses, or an amateur wanting to go and have fun. She has no health issues at all and no vices — she has never reared, bucked or bolted. Words can’t really describe how amazing this mare is. She is a horse that is extremely hard to find — all the talent without any quirks.”
2. ‘Talented four-star eventer’
Selling points: “Bluestone Ice is a gelding with 77 EI points, who has every potential for five-star eventing. He has many top 10 finishes, including one at four-star international level. He would be ideal for any competitive rider.”

Selling points: “‘Major’ is by Ghareeb, a true gentleman and a joy to have on the yard. He is very willing to please, always tries his hardest and loves a fuss. He hacks alone and in company. He is perfect to travel in a lorry or trailer and good to clip, shoe and trim. He has lived with mares, geldings, colts and individually and has lived out 24/7 but is equally happy to be left in with no fuss. He has hunted two seasons with his previous owner, proving to be brave willing horse jumping rails, hedges and ditches. He is schooling around courses of 1m with ease and has plenty of scope to go higher. Major has three lovely paces and a great presence about him. A real head turner in the ring, in his first dressage tests he came away with two scores over 65%. He can turn his hoof to any sphere being a very versatile all-rounder with scope. Major enjoys his work and will meet you at the gate ready. He is a horse that thrives on having a job.”

Selling points: “This beautiful Irish Sport Horse, Woody, is a lovely model of horse — he has plenty of bone, and is vice- and blemish-free. Woody is working well on the flat, a built on the bridle type with lovely paces, and is straight and correct moving. He rides a very accurate and consistent test and is bold and brave over all fillers and cross-country fences. He has competed a handful of unaffiliated events at 80/90cm level. Woody is excellent to hack — alone or in company — and is great in traffic and open spaces. He is a lovely horse to have around and would suit a dressage or eventing/riding club home.”
