1. ‘A genuine star’

hunter for sale

Height: 14.2hh

Gender: gelding

Age: five

Selling points: “‘Charming’ has hunted all season with Killarney Foxhounds.  He is a real genuine and quiet gelding, easy to ride, shoe, box, catch, clip and in traffic. Charming is easy to hack out alone or in company — he is quiet in traffic and he knows all kind of farm machinery and animals. He is a one in a million — he is ridden here by novice students in a snaffle at all times and he is easy to ride across country. Charming is a super cob — he loves jumping, hacking, flat work, cross-country — he is a true all-rounder! He is easy to ride and one to have fun with. He is very comfortable and has three nice paces with a soft snaffle mouth.  He has no stable vices and is open to any vetting.”

2. ‘Beautiful’

hunter for sale

Height: 16hh

Gender: gelding

Age: 10

Selling points: “This beautiful unregistered Irish Draught was bought by us as two years ago. ‘Teddy’ has been regularly hunted and competed. He has hunted for two seasons with the Wilton Hunt as well as doing days with the Portman. He has had experience mastering with the Seavington Hunt in his previous home. He is bold to a fence, jumping timber, hedges and ditches with ease, and stands while out and at the meet. He has also successfully competed in hunter trials and inter-hunt relays, helping the team finish second at the New Forest County Show, proving to be an all-rounder. However hunting is what he enjoys the most so a hunting home is necessary. He is great to load, catch and shoe and hacks alone and in company, first or last. He can be strong so is not a novice ride. He can be sensitive when mounting, but this has improved since we’ve owned him.”

5. ‘Super smart’

hunter for sale

Height: 16hh

Gender: gelding

Age: 12

Selling points: “This horse previously competed to British Eventing novice level but he sadly doesn’t enjoy the work as he used too. I hunted him a handful of times over this season and he was brilliant. Unfortunately he hasn’t been my sole focus so wasn’t overly fit. He went out on the closing day meet with the Essex and Suffolk, jumping all hedges in front of him with ease. He’s snaffle-mouthed but can throw a buck. He is a total gentleman on the ground, and is happy to ride and lead from. He is looking for a competent jockey to go and have a ball with!”
