Bought this time last year from Ireland as a project (for granny!!!). Shown 2016 with considerable success at training shows, including an evening performance which she took in her stride. Always in the first 3 with many complements from the judges. She's a pleasure to have around!

Has hunted several days with the D&S Foxhounds, proving to be mannerly, stands quietly and good with hounds. She has lovely stable manners and is always polite, never barges or pulls.

Comes to call, loads herself and travels beautifully, good to clip, farrier and good in traffic. Loves her jumping and would make fabulous working cob.

Will be lovely novice prospect for the coming season.

  • Sure to excel in the show ring and be a real HOYS contender

This wonderful little girl has a temperament to die for, so friendly and loving she just loves to be fussed over, washed and groomed.  Totally honest and genuine we jumped on her bare back and she walked quietly in from the field!!

This mare has huge potential for the show ring, a fabulous example of an old fashioned true Gypsy cob.  Very evenly marked with tonnes of silky feather combined with her super straight movement she is sure to excel in the show ring and be a real HOYS contender.

Her schooling is very established and she would also do well in the Dressage arena and could happily ride a prelim test tomorrow.

Not only does this sweet mare have all of the above going for her she is also extremely quiet and easy to do, she would equally also make a wonderful happy hacker.  She pops a small fence so would happily pop a log out hacking or maybe Hunting!!! She is well behaved in wide open spaces as well as on the road and will happily hack both alone and in company.

She takes up the rider leg well, our rider in the video is 5’10 and he does not look, or feel big on her.

I have managed to trace her and she is by the legendary cob stallion SD Chief, who was sold to America,  now sadly this is not recorded in her passport however I’m sure if her new owner wished they could get her DNA tested if her breeding was important to them?

This really is a special girl and will make the perfect family horse, show horse or happy hacker

  • Super hunter, flashy hack, RC / PC all rounder, local showing and working hunter

Boy is a super smart lad with heaps of presence and a very loving personality. 3 active paces and a rocking horse canter to die for! Schooled well on the flat including leg yield and started shoulder in. Boy is forward to ride, responsive to leg and seat aids and would suit a quiet rider. He's adapted to competent teens riding him too and I could imagine a bold teen doing a lot with him especially out hunting and XC.

Boy has a scopey jump with a good technique. He really loves his jumping whether it be show jumping, XC or hunting. He is very bold and brave out on the hunting field and XC course over skinnies, hedges, stone walls, water, ditches etc. 

Hunted with Quorn and Four Shires. Done a full season in Ireland too. Absolutely loves this job. Jumped clear around 90-1m hunter trials. Super prospect for working hunter classes.

Boy hacks alone or in company in heavy traffic. He is sensible in open spaces. He will jump any logs, ditches, streams in the way. I've taken him on fun rides which he loved & he gives such a comfy ride. Boy is a true gentleman to handle, not a bolshy cob in the slightest he just wants to give lots of love and hang out with you. 

I've had a lot of fun with this special lad and spent time producing him since may 2016 (he was already Broken and passed vetting when I bought him) he will now be fantastic either for a competent rider as a hunter, flashy hack, riding club/PC all rounder, local showing and working hunter.

Up to date with physio, farrier, worming and teeth.

Good to catch, box, shoe, clip.

Does have old splint prior to me purchasing him.

Personal circumstances force sale of my much loved super cob!

  • A real fun all rounder, he enjoys his jumping, is bold over coloured and natural poles.

Lovely, smart cob who is a type very hard to find.

This chap is quality enough to hold his own at county level CHAPS and BSPA as a coloured native type, yet also the type who will turn his hoof to any activity his owner may wish to participate in.

He would be a real fun all rounder, he enjoys his jumping, is bold over coloured and natural poles.

Gomez is a lovely sort with a small, pretty head and a very kind eye. He is a real mover under saddle and it all comes from his shoulder, he won’t take a lot to produce on and he will be covered in rosettes, his canter is also very natural.

Gomez will also do well in the dressage arena with a bit more schooling. He has basic understanding of flat work, but is a clever, nicely forward thinking ride, who won't take a lot to have him going very well. He is not a ploddy kick a long cob and enjoys his work.

We have taken him to his first show and he was 3rd in a strong coloured class and took the whole day in his stride.He really is an exciting prospect.

Good to hack alone or in company and has been brilliant in all traffic met to date, he is a pleasure to hack.

Gomez has hunted with us and loved it, he was a polite but forward ride all day and jumped anything asked of him and didn't get too strong and behaved well with hounds.

He has XC schooled with us round a full BE course, jumping all the 90 and 100 fences, he stops at nothing and is a super ride XC,  He is happy to hack alone or in company.

Gomez is very sweet in and out the stable, good to bath, box, shoe, catch and clip. I really like this little chap and can’t wait to see him excel in his new home.

Super honest, Irish sort who has spent his life hacking and hunting in Ireland before being recently imported. He is a nice, forward thinking ride who wants to please. Lenny needs some more schooling on the flat before he's ready to do a dresssage test, but improves every day and is a real trier. He genuinely has never had a formal education on the flat so we are having to start from scratch and teach him to work over his back, this is coming on nicely but still has room for improvement.

He is brilliant to hack, both alone and in company and has been brilliant in all traffic met to date with us. Lenny is a bold, scopey jumper and will go on to make a super RC horse or hunter and if someone cracks on with his flawork he would be a lot of fun to take eventing. He has more than enough scope to jump BS classes and gives a lovely feeling over a fence. We have jumped him at a couple of unaff shows locally and he was very good, looked at nothing and proved to be very genuine.  

Well Hunted with us as a hireling  and jumps everything with any rider, including some very big hedges, mannerly at the meet and good with hounds, Lenny has proved himself to be reliable and gives a good lead, he would field master or be sensible enough for huntsman. He does gates at the back no problem but will also give a thruster a lot of fun. He would possibly team chase.

He isn't a strong ride but not for a  total novice as is forward going, but always has breaks and manners. He is perfect to handle, you really won't find an easier horse!, box (lorry or trailer), shoe, catch, clip etc. and likes the company of people.
