Ex Race Horses: Over 16hh

***SUPERB BD / ROR / RIDING CLUB ALLROUNDER***


Ref #: 209636
  • Good experience competing at British Eventing at 100 level and would be a fabulous grassroots horse.
  • Excels in the dressage arena, every BE test he has done so far, not one has been higher than 30.
  • Would also thrive in the show ring with ROR.

  • Good experience competing at British Eventing at 100 level and would be a fabulous grassroots horse.
  • Excels in the dressage arena, every BE test he has done so far, not one has been higher than 30.
  • Would also thrive in the show ring with ROR.

Fort Smith is a superbly put together 16.3h 10 yr old striking bay gelding. He has been thoughtfully and slowly produced since coming out of a successful racing career (see below) and has taken to it like a duck to water – a real pleasure to produce. 

He has three stunning and well-balanced paces and has enjoyed learning leg yield and counter canter. He excels in the dressage arena due to being quite the natural in this phase. Every BE test he has done so far, not one has been higher than 30. He is a rideable and accurate, never getting hot or silly, he now has a good understanding of the dressage and has a real presence.

He is a super stamp (by Presenting dam Land of Honour), well mannered horse who would also thrive in the show ring with ROR. 

Equally he has good experience competing at British Eventing at 100 level and would be a fabulous grassroots horse (in a short period of time he already has 4 foundation points to his name). He makes a good shape over a fence and has attended many gridwork clinics and cross country schooling sessions. He is good to showjump and has seen many different fillers etc. with the instinct to be careful.

Fort Smith has shown he can turn his hoof to anything whilst doing it with a kind and willing attitude. He is good to catch, shoe and hack alone and in company. Since coming out of racing he has been produced by a small petite woman, proving polite and gentle.

Racing career – Fort Smith was 140 rated multiple winning chaser for Gigginstown trained by Gordon Eliott before relocating to England where he was third on debut in a listed hurdle at Aintree.

This horse deserves a 5* home where he can fulfill his potential outside the world of racing and give his new owner huge enjoyment whilst doing so.

Striking 17.2 hh 7 year old imported French Thoroughbred Gelding for sale through no fault of his own. He is still green (not spooky at all just inexperienced) after being re trained from coming out of racing however he has 3 good paces, and hacks well. His jumping will need more work as he can get tense in this area, however I have no doubt that he will pick up a good technique with the regular work and time that we haven’t been able to provide him with.

This horse has a lovely, kind nature and is a true gentleman with good manners. He just needs someone that will understand he is still a work in progress, and will have the time to bring him on. Will live in or out, loads like a dream into a lorry or trailer (impeccable to take out and will stand on or by the trailer all day), and is good to be shod and clipped. Up to date with vaccinations and worming. 10* home sought for this truly loved horse.

Rosso is an experienced Hunter both Drag Hunting / Blood Hounding and Fox Hunting. I have had many a day on him, jumping anything he's faced with both in front on his own or in behind. He has whipped in Fox Hunting and been in the field, front and back, on point, opening gates, leading etc. He would make someone a nice Master's Horse.

He has Intermediate Team Chased, both as lead horse and in behind, and has done the Melton Hunt Club Race. He was retired sound from racing last year.

Since finishing Team Chasing this spring he has been introduced to flat work which he has taken to very nicely and is learning fast, making me think he could make someone a fun eventer. Nothing phases him to jump, he is not a spooky sort of horse. Eligible for ROR classes.

He is a lovely character to look after, no vices or quirks, 100% traffic, box, shoe. Genuine reason for sale and he is fit and 100% sound but will be roughed off in 2 weeks if not sold.

Florence, 16.1hh dark bay TB mare.

Flatwork: On the flat Flo is really lovely to ride, beautiful balanced trot, becoming much stronger in the canter, fairly established on the flat.

Show jump: To jump she is very genuine and honest, will jump from any stride and will always be looking for the next fence. She is fairly clumsy when jumping tracks 1m and bigger. However would be a double clear machine at BE80/BE90 level.

XC: XC machine! she absolutely loves cross country, will jump anything and covers the ground beautifully, an absolute pleasure to ride xc.

Florence had lots of show jump faults last season which made us concerned whether she was happy, we therefore had her scoped and she has stomach ulcers. She has fully completed the treatment now and is looking the best she has ever look, as well as having been rescoped with confirmation from the vet saying that they are completely under control. Therefore she is in full work but has not consistently been jumped since competing September 2018. This year she has been mainly hacking ad riding on the flat. I have jumped her a handful of times and she feels so much happier and scopey in her jump!! We have done a pairs hunter trial to lead a green horse round the 90cm track, and having jumped once prior to that over the winter, she popped round the course, not looking twice!!
Florence is fantastically bred as a thoroughbred, and would have some cracking foals some day if anyone wanted.

This little mare is great for the farrier, vet and the dentist, she however can be grumpy to tack up due to the history in the racing. She is not a world beater, but she is super consistent at her level, and she will take anyone round with a smile on her face. Home more important than price.

  • Do you have an eventer or dressage horse that you no longer want to compete at such a high level?
  • ... or that you want to have quieter life?
  • 16.1hh+

I am an experienced rider who completes at Novice BD and is looking for a horse, preferably a gelding, to do the same and go up to Elementary. A quiet, sympathetic and kind rider who has regular training and would look to complete around once a month.

If your horse loves a bit of eventing, we could do BE80/90 too, although this is not a pre-requisite.

I can offer a loving 5* experienced home, with the horse being kept at home with an arena and fantastic local hacking, plus attending training sessions. Excellent references can be provided from BD and BE accredited coaches.

The horse must be good at travelling on it's own in a big trailer, hack out (alone and in company) in country traffic and be nice to do.

Please contact me if you have a horse you are wanting to place in a lovely home, who will of course receive regular farrier, dentist, physio etc. A loan would be preferred (with full loan agreement), although have a small budget if you'd prefer to sell and home is more important than price. The reason I'm looking at loan/small budget is due to the large financial outlay I've had with current horse.

No rearers, buckers or bolters please!

Lovely looking, with a very kind face. Dilly absolutely adores people and is very friendly. She really tries her hardest to please in whatever she’s being asked to do.

Has been cross country schooling. Happily popped round the BE90 / 100 fences. Not at all strong, ridden in a snaffle at all times. Easy to adjust to a fence and keep a nice Rhythm. Will jump off of any stride (no matter how wrong you are). Has also competed a unaffiliated competitions.

Hacks out alone and in company. Good in all sorts of traffic, not at all spooky. Good to shoe, box, clip etc. No vices in the stable or ridden. Happy to live in or out. Wouldn’t get at all silly if left for a couple of days or more.

A very genuine and willing mare who someone could now go on and have a lot of fun with!

Based in East Devon. Good trial facilities.
