2. ‘Extremely handsome’

RoR horses for sale

Height: 17hh

Gender: gelding

Age: 10

Selling points: “This is an extremely handsome ex-racehorse by Overbury. He is an old-fashioned National Hunt (NH) stamp with very good bone. He raced once as a four-year-old and we have owned him since he was five. He has done a bit of most things in that time including side-saddle, though only basic schooling as my interests lie in team chasing and hunting. He has team chased regularly up to intermediate and has the scope for opens. He is clever with his feet — not a timber tapper. He has hunted with the Beaufort this season and is a very smart hunter, but is best when going regularly otherwise can be fresh/nappy — he doesn’t buck or rear, is just on his toes. He hacks out alone and in company and used to ride and lead both ways. He is generally easy to do; clips/loads/travels/shoes well. He can get separation anxiety, never malicious or nasty, just doesn’t like being on his own and will box walk if alone. He is flashy enough for RoR or eventing as he has lovely straight paces, but is equally a serious hunting machine for someone who wants to get out regularly.”

3. ‘Stunning’

RoR horses for sale

Height: 15.2hh

Gender: mare

Age: six

Selling points: “This mare has shown at county level in RoR classes last season. She has been cross-country schooling proving bold and hacks out in company/alone. She is 100% to do in all ways, but needs an experienced rider.”

4. ‘Perfect

RoR horses for sale

Height: 15.2hh

Gender: gelding

Age: seven

Selling points: “This horse is easy to do in every way and a pleasure to own. He has three correct places and works nicely in an outline. He has been out competing regularly in dressage and showjumping, where he has taken myself, having previously lost confidence from jumping 70cm to 90cm+. He is bold, does not look at fillers and is never silly, he will put in as much effort as is needed while still being fun. He has also been cross-country schooling and completed hunter trials. We have also competed regularly in Riding Club teams and qualified to compete at the BRC National Championships. He raced twice and is RoR eligible — he qualified for the RoR unaffiliated section of the regional league national championships held at Aintree. While he is perfect in every way, he does windsuck. He hacks alone and in company, will go first or last and is snaffle mouthed. He would particularly suit someone looking to have great fun, gain more confidence and compete in all spheres of riding club activities.

5. ‘Fantastic jumper’

Height: 16.2hh

Gender: gelding

Age: 11

Selling points: “This horse is eligible for RoR classes. He is straightforward and would make a superb all-rounder for someone. He is forward going (not a kick along), naturally balanced with three even paces, and is a fantastic jumper. He has clean limbs and is good to clip, shoe and box.”
