Gender: mare

Age: 10

Selling points: “This is a grassroots prospect and she will excel in eventing or showjumping. She is ready and eager to move up the levels with ease. She is a serious competition horse, that loves and thrives on doing her job. She has competed in novice dressage, being placed at British Dressage (BD) prelim on her first outing — she is working at elementary level at home. She has done British Showjumping (BS) courses on a ticket up to 105cm, unaffiliated and BE80s last season, and has been placed at BE90 and BE100 level this year. She has a good, bold jump and is not fazed by fillers. She is bold and forward cross-country and hunted last season with the VWH. She has the most impeccable manners and the kindest temperament — she is easy to handle and very polite. She is good to shoe, box, clip and hack alone or in company.”

Height: 16.2hh

Gender: mare

Age: seven

Selling points: “This extremely bold jumper is an absolute hunting/cross-country machine. She has been to riding club, fun rides, one-day events, local shows and hunted with the Avon Vale. As a hunter she would be a perfect field master’s horse with incredible manners and could be hunted in a snaffle. She wouldn’t mind going first or last, loves hounds and is very good around other horses — she doesn’t kick or bite. She is good with gates and waiting around. Fit and ready to go this season.”

Horses for sale south west

Height: 17hh

Gender: gelding

Age: 10

Selling points: “Limerick is an Irish Sports Horse with the eventing X-factor! This horse has hunted three seasons with Blackmore and Sparkford Vale over the biggest country, and is currently hunting with VWH giving him huge life and jumping experience. In 2018, Limerick competed at BE100 and BE novice level with numerous double clears. Limerick is now competing and been placed BS newcomers with scope to jump foxhunter and above. He has elegant uphill paces on the flat, a snaffle mouth and he has now competed BD placing at prelim and novice level with the trainability for medium at least. Taking into consideration his super scopey jump, attitude and trainability, he would make a top class international event horse with scope to burn. He has no vices. This is a really lovely chap with a super trainable attitude and all the right buttons to event at a high level.”
