A fantastic ex race horse for sale. He is a lovely sane chap. Flat raced as 2 & 3 year old. Left training feb 21.

I purchased him jan 22. I dragged him out of field in March and threw tack on him and got on and he didn’t bat an eyelid ( having defo not been sat on since before November 21 and I assume feb 21.

He is well behaved. I can email video of his first ever outing away from yard to where he had his first time going over jumps, this was in March only 2 weeks after getting on him. He has been away for 5 weeks where he was supposed to being produced, however I believe at most he got a couple of weeks of not a lot from what I can tell. He was popping a short course at 60 cms with fillers at edge of jumps and had jumped portable cross country jump a few times in the 4 weeks of me bringing him on.

Unfortunately I broke my back in 3 places in April and so cannot ride for many months, so with heavy heart I have decided to sell him.

I have hacked hi in company and alone and when other horses was being a Wally and cantering off he just kept walking along very chilled. He hacked first time in company as we had to hack along very busy A rad to get to quieter roads and then I just took him out on his own after that ( occasionally going out with others). He is great in all traffic except gets a bit worried with artics ( but they were thundering past and he is a baby).

He is very very cheap considering his potential and temperament but unfortunately he now has an issue loading which I am happy to discuss over the phone to serious prospective buyer.

*THOR*

16'3/17HH 5 year old TB gelding.

Introducing Thor, the most laid back thoroughbred you will ever meet.

He retired from racing sound in May 2021 and has been allowed time to mature and be a horse. He has just come back into work and starting his education into the ridden world. Thor really is a gentle giant.

We think thor would be a great gentlemans horse, but would also suit a tall competent teenager or lady due to his size.
He is still green as only just starting his ridden career from racing, but so far he is proving him self to be unfazed by anything with a real attitude to work.
He is a gentleman on the ground, Stands like a rock to be mounted, falls asleep on the farrier and has no stable vices.

Snaffle mouthed, gentle in your hands has never been strong or silly.

Although thor is so laid back he would not suit a novice rider as he needs further education.

Up to date on all vaccinations and just been shod last week.

Would qualify for R & R

Open to vetting.

Based rainham essex.

Has been placed unaffiliated ODE & SJ.

He is also a pleasure to ride on the flat and would make a a super eventer with some further schooling, ROR eligible.

He is an absolute plod to hack alone or in company and isn’t phased by traffic. He is very good at moving cows and sheep too.

He can still be green round a XC course and would therefore suit someone confident and experienced who is willing to continue his education.

Happy to include Albion saddle & rugs etc.

Bertie - 10 year old 16.2hh TB gelding sadly for sale due to lack of time and not being able to give him everything he truly deserves.

Bertie retired from a very good racing career last July 2021. Since then he has been enjoying his slower paced life and has chilled out completely. He has the sweetest nature and will give the right owner everything he's got!

He really enjoys his hacking and is completely bomb proof on his own or in company. His schooling is coming on in leaps and bounds and he is proving to really enjoy it. He schools in a beautiful natural outline in walk and trot and his canter is improving everyday.

Having raced on the flat and over hurdles, we know Bertie can jump but it is not something we've done much of since owning him.

He is 100% to clip, shoe, catch, load and any thing else you can think of.

No vices, has never bucked or reared. Really honest, sweet little gelding.

He is up to date with his teeth, back and vaccinations.

Retired from racing last year so will qualify for ROR. Will suit a quiet, confident rider that can further his education. No novices please.

He is a very special boy and deserves the very best home which I will ensure he gets!

Florence is ROR eligible, she was just not good enough to race.

Florence is a very honest and willing mare that has turned her foot to everything that has been asked of her, she moves well and has been out showjumping and cross country, jumping ditches, water, owl howls, steps etc.

Florence will hack alone or in company and is not fussed on any traffic.

She is good to do in all ways, to clip, shoe, load, not mareish etc.

She is not a novice ride as she still needs educating so will need an experienced rider, who will take her through the levels. And I think she will go far in the right hands.

  • Thoroughbred
  • Bay
  • Mare
  • 5 years
  • 16.1 hands
  • I believe she will make a nice allround RC type / eventer / dressage horse for someone

16.1 5yo TB mare, grandsire is Sea The Stars.

Bellica recently started her retraining after proving to be too slow for racing (she raced once). Full history known, she came straight from her breeder/trainer about 2 months ago.

She has taken to her work with the right brain and attitude to make into a very nice horse for a competent rider.

She works in a nice shape, with a good walk and trot. Canter is still in progress but it will come in no time, however her transitions are relatively sharp. She also has started to jump a small course of fences, proving to be brave and honest. Bellica has been to 3 different venues and taken it all in her stride every time, she’s a very easy horse to deal with.

She is good to do, however she can be a little ticklish when it comes to brushing her. This is improving all the time so I’m sure it will be something she will grow out of the more she gets used to it.

She hacks alone or in company round the farm and is good with farm machinery. I don’t hack on roads as they’re too dangerous local to me, but she used to hack next to a busy road down to the gallops so is used to traffic noise.

Loads and stands on a lorry all day even if you take a horse off, good with the farrier, catch etc.

I believe she will make a nice allround RC type/eventer/dressage horse for someone. Please no novices, this is still a green horse that requires schooling and a good hand to guide her.

ROR eligible. Would be a perfect summer project, she’s a lovely looking horse with a great trainable brain!!

I’m not usually a mare or thoroughbred lover, however this mare has totally changed my mind and proven me wrong. Whoever buys this horse will love her!

I’m open to near offers to ensure she has a long term loving home.

Based near Peterborough, please no timewasters.

Super horse who for the right person will be a star. Not for someone novice or nervous as he’s a sensitive horse who needs someone competent.

Ran once on the flat but was too slow. Been in the same home for 9 years. More recently has been hacking due to new family.

Evented at BE 100 qualifying for regional finals in 2019. Can be tense on the flat but with time and relaxing he does a nice test. Has done pure dressage scoring around 70% at novice.

Forward going to jump and loves XC.

Won eventers challenges at 1m.

Hacks alone like a total star or in company, happier to go first as can get stressy behind. Will go past anything and is great with traffic.

Has done a fun ride and loved

Needs consistent exercise not the type of horse to be picked up and dropped when it comes to his work load.

He will only go to a suitable home- change in circumstances forces sale.

Sensibly priced to find the right forever home.

Wendy is a blank canvas for you to put your own stamp on. 

This gorgeous young mare is sadly for due to lack of time. 

She has done all the groundwork and has now been lightly ridden away and is showing an excellent attitude to work. She moves forward from your leg and straight into the contact as she has been taught the correct way to go. 

She has no blemishes and is very straight moving with a brilliant action in-front and behind. We have been giving her time to mature and produce slowly since she was lightly trained as a yearling. She will only be for sale to the best of homes as she is such a great horse to have around. 

She has been ridden by novices around the farm and is never silly or naughty. If not sold she will be brought on and produced here at home. 

She is kept on a busy working farm and has seen all machinery and hacks around the fields on the buckle. 

She has been in race training and is ROR eligible but she has never raced or seen a racetrack, which is rare for such a big filly with excellent breeding. 

She is not sold with a non-racing agreement as so could go back into training.

She is good to load, clip, box, shoe, handle etc. No vices. 

She lives out 24/7 in company and is a good doer on good grass. 

She would be perfect for someone to lightly hack this summer and turn away over winter ready to crack on next year. No time wasters as this is an incredibly sad sale. 

Lots of photos/videos available on request.

SOLD! Philly has found a wonderful new home in Devon ??
  • Thoroughbred
  • Grey
  • Mare
  • 9 years
  • 16.1 hands
  • Attractive mare with potential to be a super horse in the right hands.

Could make a lovely all rounder for someone with the time to put into her. She has very low mileage, has been hacked and has only been introduced to schooling work in the past 6 months.

Philly will hack safely alone or in company, is confident and relaxed and is unphased by traffic and things you meet out hacking. All work has been done in a snaffle. She has been to training sessions, including pole work.  She is good to lunge and responds to voice commands. She’s enjoying learning to jump.

Vaccination, worming, teeth and back all up to date. She has really good feet and currently is in front shoes, but can be shod all round. Has been partially clipped with no problems.  She is excellent to load and travel and will stand quietly on the box.  100% to catch and can be turned out on her own or with others.  No vices in or out of the stable. She can live on hay/haylage and straw/shavings.  She seems happy on a busy or quiet yard and is used to farm machinery.

She would suit a confident rider as she is not a novice ride.  Ideally, I would like her to go to someone experienced with TBs or bringing on green horses, who has the time and knowledge to give her a fun life.  I absolutely love her but realise I don’t have the time or experience to do her justice.
