For sale, 15hh 6 year old. Lovely genuine beautiful boy, loves to have a fuss and a cuddle, everyone loves him at the yard. Good ground/stable manners, we happily let the children lead him around. He has a lovable personality and the looks to match!

To school he is still green, however in the right hands he could go very far in showing/dressage. He tries hard to please his rider and is proving to be a quick learner.

Too hack out he is fantastic with another horse, we have been on busy roads and seen motorbikes/busses/lorries and he has always behaved well. He will go first or last. However on his own he needs reassurance from his rider as he is young and can be spooky.

Due to his age and him still being on the green side he is not a novice ride. I feel that he would have a lot to offer a more experienced rider. He would make a fantastic project horse for the summer.

Plenty of videos and pictures on request.

Please contact 07771 995402 for more information.

He is up to date with all vacs / teeth / back / feet ect.

Sad sale of much loved boy.

I can't talk highly enough of this mare she is a saint teaching people to canter and then to teach them to produce a good test.

Has been used over winter for my hirelings to hack around the estate and bridleways had many novices on can look at things but a small kick she'll pass not a bad bone in her body.

Great to catch, load, trim, traffic etc

Really is a sad sale for our yard but she deserves an incredible riding club/happy hacker home. Video on request.
