1. ‘True gentleman’

horses for sale all-rounder

Height: 15.2hh

Gender: gelding

Age: 11

Selling points: “This is a good, experienced all-rounder gelding. He is snaffle mouthed and is the ‘been there, done it’ type — Pony Club (PC), showjumping, cross-country, hunter trials, paired events and hunted with a previous owner. He enjoys jumping, however is more comfortable competing around 70-80cm but has done 90cm courses. He needs a confident rider to push him forward and give him encouragement when showjumping, however he is more forward going in company e.g hunting/hacking/paired hunter trials, so is not a novice ride. He is currently being ridden by my 16-year-old daughter who sadly cannot give him the work he needs because of her A-levels. He is good to do in all ways — clip, catch, load, shoe, traffic and adores attention — he has no vices, plenty of personality and is open to vetting.”

2. ‘Gorgeous

horses for sale all-rounder

Height: 16.1hh

Gender: gelding

Age: eight

Selling points: “This absolutely gorgeous registered quality Irish Draught gelding was bred in Ireland. He is  a good middleweight and an absolute gentleman on the ground. He is excellent to box, shoe, clip, catch, groom, tie up, bath etc. He will go out into the field alone or is equally happy in a mixed herd. He is schooled and a lovely, responsive ride. He has been showjumping and cross-country training and takes you round. He has been jumped up to 80cm but could easily go higher if wanted. He’s excellent to hack alone or in company and will go first or last and is good in traffic. He has been on fun rides and has a lovely, soft snaffle mouth — he is not a spooky type. To hunt he is a machine — he would make a fantastic master’s horse or someone who wants to stand out from the crowd. He’s good with hounds, hunt whip, stands when asked and happy to go away from others. He’ll cross any country and jump whatever is in front of him. He is bold and can get strong so would suit a confident rider if you wanted him for hunting. He has been hunted by both a lady and gentleman and loves it. This horse has the major wow factor and really stands out from the crowd. He has a real showy look about him and would make a fantastic working hunter, hunter, all-rounder or event horse. He has absolutely no vices. He does have a couple of splints but no scars. He is looking for a home where he will be used and enjoyed to his full potential.”

4. ‘Fantastic

horses for sale all-rounder

Height: 16.1hh

Gender: mare

Age: 10

Selling points: “This KWPN mare is much-loved and is always wanting to please. She doesn’t kick or bite and is not at all mareish. She has good manners around other mares and geldings, is easy to catch, good to shoe, clip and load on lorry and travels alone or in company. She is a real looker and mover so is always catching people’s attention wherever she goes. She has mainly been used for a bit of showjumping with us but could easily turn her hand to dressage with her excellent paces, and although she has tremendous talent she would be just as happy in a riding club home having lots of fun as she always wants to do her best whatever is asked of her. She has hacked alone and in company and has 248 British Showjumping (BS) points with plenty of good results at novice level. She passed a five-stage vetting when initially purchased and has never been sick or sorry. She is looking for an amazing new home but I would only be happy for her to go to a capable riding club home or competitive one, as even though she is a very well-rounded mare, she still is a competition type and not a complete novice ride.”

5. ‘Smart

horses for sale all-rounder

Height: 16.1hh

Gender: gelding

Age: 13

Selling points: “This horse has qualified for prelim and novice BD Winter Area Festival regional finals in 2021, is still eligible for British Novice level BS but competed in the Blue Chip Championships Karma 1.25m class in 2019. He has jumped double clear at novice level British Eventing and qualified for the Badminton Grassroots Championship in 2018. He is quick on his feet, forward going, and a sensitive and responsive horse. He can hack alone and in company, is easy to handle, shoe, load and travel but can be spooky when ridden.”
