1. ‘Exceptional’

Hunters for sale

 

Height: 16.1hh

Gender: gelding

Age: seven

Selling points: “The hunter everyone wants! He would also team chase, with all the class and ability to event and/or showjump over the summer as well and with scope to progress up the ranks. ‘Rolex’ really is one in a million. He is an exceptional hunter suited to many types of riders. He has been hunted by both men and women, always in the same simple tack of just a snaffle and cavesson noseband. He is incredibly bold and takes it all on, has never said no. He has been jumping hedges, ditches and rails and would jump big hedge country. He finds his own stride and takes you in without being strong. He is always mannerly and polite and will stand quietly at the meet and will sit happily at the back with the drinkers and smokers if required. He is a very comfortable ride, good at gates, will wait and remains polite. He is a horse you can really go out and have a good time on, whether you want to jump the big stuff, the small stuff, or not at all. He is fit and out now most weeks with both fox and bloodhounds. Ready to get on and go! For someone looking to hunt over the winter and compete over the summer, Rolex is your guy, whether your looking to just crack on at the lower levels or produce something classy further up the levels. He is a lovely mover and is working well on the flat with some really lovely tests to come, whether for eventing or pure dressage. He shows real class and ability over a fence. He is super careful with excellent technique, even when you bury him under the fence he will do his absolute best to dig himself out and keep the poles up. He is out competing up to 1.10m now. In a true testament to his amazing temperament, rideability and talent Rolex recently delivered consistently excellent performances at the recent Pentathlon open championships, a qualifier for Tokyo 2020, where he was showjumped by both male and female riders of varying ability and experience. Super bold cross country, great with water! Rolex is good to do on the ground in all ways, loads and travels well and works very sweetly away from home. He is kind and cuddly in the stable and brilliant to hack both on his own and in company.”

3. ‘Stunning’

Hunters for sale

Height: 16.1hh

Gender: mare

Age: five

Selling points: “‘Willow’ is a stunning Irish Draught mare with huge potential. Over the past 12 months she has turned her hoof to everything asked of her. Her flat work is coming along nicely and she has masses of scope and is showing huge promise over fences, both showjumping and on the hunting field. She has the heart of gold and is 100% genuine, a really honest unspoilt little mare. Always in the ribbons while competing both showjumping and working hunter, displaying classy rounds of jumping. She has been to regular jumping and dressage clinics while hunting most weekends with the Duke of Buccleuch Hunt, jumping 90cm with ease. While out hunting Willow is never strong or silly, jumping everything asked of her including walls and hedges however, she is equally happy to stay at the back of the pack and open/shut gates, extremely well mannered. She is good to do in all ways, with no quirks or vices. She is 100% in traffic and is always snaffle mouthed. She is used to being around young children and pets; she is completely un-phased by this.”

5. ‘Excels over natural obstacles’

Hunters for sale

Height: 17hh

Age: six

Selling points: “This genuine Irish hunter is currently in his second season and improving every day. He can be hunted down the field, out the back or up the front. He is always ridden in a snaffle and has been hunted by a 13-year-old girl. ‘Hagrid’ has also competed at some local shows but excels over natural obstacles or in the hunting field. He is good to clip, shoe and load and to hack out alone or with company — he is also good to lead from. He could also make a lovely ladies’ hunter/hack.”
