  • Has taken a nervous amateur to her first competition when she won on 68%.

Leo is capable of producing more in the dressage and is starting basic lateral work.

Leo has done pole work and very low jumping, but it is not his forte.

The owner is looking for a home as loving and caring as she has been. Only for sale due to relocation and family reasons.

Leo has remained at his livery yard in Oxfordshire in full work and is ready to go out and give someone as much pleasure as he did his current owner.

The best home for Leo is one that wanted a confident and competent thoroughbred to compete in dressage who is easy to manage and fun to compete.

  • Dave has 3 smart, correct paces and a cracking jump. He has proven to be genuine and keen to learn.

He is still quite green for an 11yro with very low milage.

I spent February and march in lockdown working on his flatwork which has improved immensely. He has done 3 online video dressage tests and scored 65% at intro and 66% at prelim.

I have taken him SJ and XC schooling which he took completely in his stride and loved.

He travels alone or in company and is easy enough for me to load and travel and deal with on my own. He ties up at the lorry and is calm and easy.

With his previous owner he has been to riding club clinics and on a fun ride.

He hacks alone or in company although can be a little spooky but this is no issue for someone with a secure seat.

Dave is not a novice ride simply because he is a fit TB however he has never put a foot wrong and does nothing more than become a bit bouncy when excited.

He is the perfect all-rounder and is fit and ready to go out and have a fun summer with someone and learn about the job.

He is easy to load, shoe, clip etc and is the sweetest most affectionate horse to have around the yard.

Seeking active home for this much loved horse.

Polkat Magic (IRE) aka Micheal - By Beat Hollow

Up to date Weatherbys passport

Micheal is a rising 8 year old thoroughbred standing at 17hh, he trained in point to point when young but has not raced competitively so has low mileage. Based in Gloucestershire.

He has competed in low level unaffiliated showjumping and preliminary dressage scoring 70%. I’ve jumped him to 115m in training so has the potential to go far with the right owner. He is a willing horse and loves to jump with a good range, he is a confident jumper and will jump anything if you ask him to.

No novices or time wasters, Micheal needs a Confident competitive rider as he is quite green. He is a good project pony and could see him being a good hunter, as well as moving up the levels in affiliated showjumping.

Good to shoe, clip, travel. He is a very loving and inquisitive horse and has an amazing temperament as well as being good with children. He is the most affectionate and kind horse I’ve ever met and is a joy to be around. Does hack but not done a lot of it but is fine with a confident rider. Fully Vaccinated and up to date with shoes, teeth ext...

Can be sold with a selection of rugs and tack for an added price.

Very sad sale as I’ve had him since he was 5 years old but know he has way more potential than I can keep up with. He deserves a loving home that can give him all the means to excel in what he does best.

GENRAL NOTES: Where do we start with Danny!

If you are serious about competing to the highest level, then Danny is the horse for you.

Schooled and ridden by a professional event rider, Danny never disappoints.

This exquisite gelding ticks all the boxes - no vices, chucky, fantastic jumper, quick learner, soft in his mouth, beautiful gaits, happy to be in or out alone and in company, careful and scopey!

Nothing fazes this gorgeous boy.

If Emma didn’t have her hands full with her 2 competition horses then she would have kept Danny as her next rising star but due to time constraints and the racing yard, she can’t keep Danny on. 

He is Emma’s best friend and the right home is imperative for this boy. 

Danny is a 3 times winner, retired sound but has  fallen out of love with racing unfortunately.

Danny’s price will go up in due course as Emma is preparing him for cross country and team chasing events.

Max was broken in last summer and sent into training however unraced and too slow! He was a good ride and ridden by small girls.

He has been to the forest and arena hire, over ditches, logs and tyres. He is jumping around a small course with fillers and in time will be very smart.

Good to hack alone or in company, good in open spaces and traffic.

He loves attention and is a real character to have on the yard. A really fun boy who loves his work, equally doesn't need to be ridden every day.

  • Enjoys hacking just as much as competing
  • Consistently relaxed temperament
  • Very brave jump

Colin is a guaranteed fun ride with an easy going temperament and love for his job! We’ve had 4 wonderful years together and enjoyed competing in British eventing, showjumping and dressage as well as hacking in huge open fields and even splashing in the sea.

Colin is a very bold horse and will happily pop any jump in front of him, whether that be showjumping or cross country! He has a big careful jump and happily schooled round Larkills Novice course and Tweseldown’s 100. He has a nice consistent rhythm coming into the fence and between combinations.

Colin can work well in a frame and has started learning some lateral movements. Dressage does not come to him as naturally, however, he always aims to please!

He is a kind person with lots of character. Colin would suit a mother daughter share/ Riding club/ Pony club/ teenager/ grassroots competing/ someone who wants to have fun!

No vices, no bucking, no rearing, no bolting, not strong.

Hacks alone and in company. Good with traffic, farrier, vets, travelling, loading, clipping... pretty much everything!

Happy to send more vids and pics!

This is an extremely hard sale so serious enquires only please.

Woody is a lovely horse to have around. He has nice paces and works well on the flat.

He was successfully shown at riding club level at the beginning of 2020.

Happy to hack alone but prefers company. Rides and leads well.

Woody can jump very well but tends to not enjoy it as much as working on the flat therefore he is for sale to a dressage / show / hacking home only.

He enjoys hunting and hunted with the Heythrop with my 13yo 2019/20 season but again his jumping wasn't consistent. He would however suit a non jumping pack. He goes all day, is mannerly and stands at the meet etc.

He would suit a confident teenager / adult, not a novice ride.

Up to date with vaccs, teeth and physio.Good to clip, shoe, load.

A really lovely horse.

Royal Reel - 16.3hh, 8yr old chestnut gelding. By Shirocco out of Close Harmony, the same dam as RoR superstar, Barbers Shop.

Cookie is a much loved homebred who we have decided needs a change of career. He raced a few times so will be eligible for ROR and we are certain he has a fantastic showing career ahead of him.

He will suit someone with previous experience with ex racers as he’s a big blank canvas and ready for someone to put their own stamp on.

He came back from racing pretty weak so he had a holiday on the field to build up again and we did medicate his fetlock in the autumn happy to give more info but he is 100% sound, in regular work and blemish free.

Cookie is a real yard favourite who will be greatly missed so 5* home only for this very special lad and please no novices, time wasters or daydreamers we are a busy livery yard so serious enquiries.

King Erik is a very lovely sweet horse that finished racing due to slipping his tendon off his hock in his last race.

He has been fully rehabbed and has full vet report of injury and recovery. Shows no abnormality with gait, but due to his injury will only suit hacking / low level RC home. 

He has been in retraining for 6 weeks and shows a kind and willing attitude. Due to his early stages of re training he needs someone who will take their time with him and understand that he isn’t yet the ‘finished article’. He isn’t a plod, but yet safe and sweet, he just needs someone who can show him the ropes. He will be your best friend and loves cuddles and attention. 

Very good to shoe, box, catch, clip etc. 

Very much loved and adored by his syndicate, who want to see him in the best home possible. 

Home is more important than price.

Sad sale through no fault of his own, since lock-down he hasn't done very much, currently in light work due to other work commitments, Price reflects this

5* home is a must as he is a family favourite.
