2. ‘Striking’

Height: 16.1hh

Gender: gelding

Age: 16

Selling points: “Mustard combines striking looks and excellent conformation with a lovely character. As a three-year-old he had a short Flat-racing career and with his previous owner he qualified for the National ex-racehorse showing championships at Newmarket. He’s been with us for 10 years and has taken part in all Pony Club activities — summer camps, rallies and competitions. He’s hunted and regularly enjoys long hacks. He is a keen all-rounder, responds well to work, is willing to please and enjoys jumping, taking ditches, trakheners, skinnies and water in his stride. He hacks alone or in company and will lead or be led.  He has a fast gallop but is controllable and he has impeccable manners on the ground, being good to clip, shoe, travel, groom and wash. Our three daughters have left university and are starting work so Mustard needs a new challenge. He’s low mileage and has so much more to give to a rider who can bring him back to competing. He needs equine company and plenty of turnout.”

Height: 16.1hh

Gender: gelding

Age: seven

Selling points: “This horse has been placed in point-to-points and 90cm unaffiliated eventing, so is an all-rounder that would be perfect for RoR classes. He is also a good and experienced hunter, having been hunted by his owner for many days with the Beaufort, jumping rails, walls, hedges and ditches. He is a bold horse across country. Good to shoes, box, clip, in traffic, to hack alone or in company. He is not a typical ex racehorse because he has had such a good education. No vices.”
