Height: 16.1hh

Gender: gelding

Age: 10

Selling points: “This super horse has it all. He is a beautiful quality horse with super flat work — he has very established flying-changes and lateral work, and is always in the top placings in his dressage tests. He always goes in a snaffle with super flashy, uphill paces. He is very honest, careful and competitive to jump — he never looks at a filler, always helps you out and goes off any stride. He has competed in training shows up to 1.20m with scope to go. He will be a top amateur’s horse and would suit any rider as he has such good rideability and manners and loves to please, really giving his rider confidence. He has competed at all the big venues, has been cross-country schooling several times and jumped in Derbys where he was super bold so he would make a super eventer. He is great to hack and has no vices. A perfect schoolmaster to teach someone the ropes.”

4. ‘Lovely horse

Height: 16.2hh

Gender: gelding

Age: seven

Selling points: “‘Pete’ is a Belgian Warmblood bred for showjumping but also has lovely movement. I evented him up to BE100 level, and has been on loan to a friend who has done riding club activities and camp over the summer. He is snaffle mouthed and excels at dressage and showjumping. He has too many placings to mention in unaffiliated dressage and showjumping — he would be good enough to do affiliated dressage for the more ambitious rider. I autumn hunted him last year and he went out hunting on a few days during the week on and off last season, so could also follow a path down this road. He is a lovely horse to deal with, inquisitive and loves human fuss. He hacks alone and in company, travels in a trailer or lorry and has no vices.
