2. ‘Progressing well’

Height: 16.1hh

Gender: mare

Age: 14

Selling points: “Plaisterer Flat raced successfully until she was seven, when she was retired sound to be an equally successful brood mare. She has bred six foals — her six-year-old can be seen and is headed for a successful eventing career. Histories of all her foals are known.  Four months ago she was taken by me for re-breaking to saddle and is, obviously, still green but is riding out and progressing well and starting some pole work. We are looking for a good home with someone who wants to breed a beautiful foal and also gets a potential riding horse thrown in! She is good in the stable, to catch and with the farrier.”

3. ‘Very pretty’

Height: 15.2hh

Gender: mare

Age: 14

Selling points: “This very pretty mare is British Dressage (BD) registered and is eligible for RoR. Alice has shown well ridden and in-hand at county level. I compete her at prelim level BD and works in a soft outline, has three good paces and is reliable. She has the potential to move up to a higher level. She formerly raced on the Flat and over hurdles before she was retrained by her breeder/trainer. I bought her five years ago and she has matured nicely with professional schooling and regular hacking. She is good with traffic and happy to take the lead. She is fit, healthy and a bright horse who rewards hard work well. Alice lives out, is good to catch, travels well, is ridden in a snaffle and has no vices or injuries. She is currently barefoot — she has been shod in the past — shoeing and dentist no problem. Alice would suit a rider with sufficient experience to progress, she learns quickly and enjoys competition. Never strong or aggressive, she has a lovely kind nature and is up to date with everything.”
