1. ‘Lovely’

ex-racehorses for sale

 

Height: 16hh

Gender: mare

Age: six

Selling points: “Honey is a lovely all-rounder that is easy to do in every way and has shown the potential to excel in any discipline. She is a big mover and is now jumping with lots of scope. She has also jumped round small cross-country fences and been through water. She is super safe hacking alone and in company on roads and in fields.  Not only is she eye-catching, she has the most lovely temperament just wanting constant fuss and attention. She travels well (lorry or trailer), is easy to shoe and her vaccines and teeth are up to date.”

2. ‘Extremely talented

ex-racehorses for sale

 

Height: 16.2hh

Gender: mare

Age: seven

Selling points: “Geri has the potential to go to the top in British Eventing (BE), as she is extremely bold and brave and absolutely fearless. She went cross-country for the first time last week where she jumped everything she was pointed at including ditches, water and very narrow skinnies. She is currently competing at British Novice and Discovery British Showjumping (BS) — she is very calm yet scopey showjumping. She is also registered RoR. She absolutely loves to please and will jump on an odd stride to help out. She works in a nice outline with the softest contact — she has a mouth like butter! Three fantastic balanced paces. Good to hack, box, shoe etc. Not at all mareish with a sensible head.”

Selling points: “This horse recently retired from racing as he lost interest. He has just started his re-training and has jumped a small fence.

Height: 16.2hh

Gender: gelding

Age: 11

Selling points: “This horse ran in point-to-points until two years ago and is now retrained into a successful RoR show horse and dressage horse. Stanley has competed successfully at county level as an RoR show horse including qualifying for The Royal Highland, Aintree and Hickstead both this season and last. He has a wealth of good results including two top 10 placings at The Great Yorkshire Show in 2017 and 2018 with two different jockeys. He was 10th in the Amateur Show Series Final at the RoR Championships 2018 and seventh in the Tattersalls Special class.   He also has the potential to compete as a large riding horse. He has competed at BD prelim and unaffiliated novice with good results and would easily move up the grades. He works well on the flat and could easily be produced, or trained and competed by an amateur. He is an uncomplicated ride and hacks alone and in company. Lives in or out, no vices.”
