He is lovely to deal with on the ground. He is a nicely schooled horse and loves to be working. However he IS forward going when he is jumping.

He is a Big gentleman! Handled by children, ridden in bareback by children from the field.

Newly shod.

  • Flat work is all there and would take to much to finish him off.
  • Just started jumping.

Straight and sound. Doing his job hacks alone or in company. 

No lumps bumps or blemishes. 

Up to date with all vacs. 

He has started his career slightly late and his flat work is now push button he has started jumping. Jumps a small course isn’t phased by fillers. He still needs to progress with his jumping but he is a good learner so will come with time but the flat work is all there and would take to much to finish him off.

Competent novice ride.

Guinness


Ref #: 222377
  • A true jumping / hunting / cross country schoolmaster
  • Would be perfect to teach a younger person the ropes or for a small adult who wants to have some fun
£3,950 ono
  • Connemara Part Bred
  • Dark bay
  • Gelding
  • 15 years
  • 14.3 hands
  • A true jumping / hunting / cross country schoolmaster
  • Would be perfect to teach a younger person the ropes or for a small adult who wants to have some fun

Guinness is a true jumping / hunting / cross country schoolmaster. He is currently being ridden by a novice but brave older rider and Guinness has looked after him at every turn, taking him arena eventing, showjumping and to camp for the first time.

He is solid in traffic and will hack alone or in company. He is forward going and can be buzzy but is always sensible, with brakes in a snaffle. He never stops, doesn’t look at a thing and has plenty of scope to get you out of trouble.

He is also beginning to go in an outline on the flat but dressage is not his favourite discipline! The flatwork in the video is with a novice.

Guinness has done Pony Club Open Tetrathlon and Showjumping in a previous home but would be perfect to teach a younger person the ropes or for a small adult who wants to have some fun; he doesn’t need to be going out and jumping 1m+ every weekend anymore. He doesn’t need to be ridden every day and is perfectly sensible after several days off.

He is good to catch, load, shoe, clip. We bought him for my novice dad who has had tonnes of fun throughout the summer but has lost interest now the weather is colder!

He passed a 5-stage vetting in the spring.

ALLROUND LIFE SAVER

PERFECT HORSE FOR ANYONE ON A BUDGET

Ref #: 223565
  • He has restored my confidence after having a child and losing it completely. He is affectionate and loving and has been my ultimate best friend

  • He is the easiest horse to ride to a fence,

15.2 12yro Irish thoroughbred bay gelding

Heartbreaking sale through absolutely no fault of his own, he is the perfect horse for any teenager/adult on a budget who is looking for a horse that’ll turn their hoof to anything

Purchased in Feb 19 and passed 5 stage vetting, he has restored my confidence after having a child and losing it completely. He is affectionate and loving and has been my ultimate best friend - In the short time I’ve owned him we’ve had a go at everything we could get our hands on. 

He is the easiest horse to ride to a fence, snaffle mouthed, no rushing and just comes into any fence in a lovely rhytmical canter and is easily adjusted. He also doesn’t take huge offence if you completely miss him ( have done this to him a fair few times! )

He’s not phased by any fillers etc and is just happy to have a job. We competed at Bicton in August and he was placed 7th in his final, having never seen a main arena before and took it all in his stride

He has schooled and competed XC, leaves the start box no problem and jumps round absolutely anything. He would definitely make a nice allround event horse as that was my plans for him for next year had my circumstances not changed

He is nicely schooled with 3 good paces, would need some work in order to compete in solely dressage but has all the ingredients to do so

He hacks alone or in company and is excellent in traffic. He has crossed main roads, gone over fly overs, been face to face with arctics, buses and tractors whilst crammed down country lanes and doesn’t batter an eyelid

He is good as gold in open fields, you’re in complete control and he’s not bothered whether you go for a canter or just stroll on through. He’s happy to open gates etc and although to my knowledge he hasn’t hunted, I can’t see any reason why he wouldn’t

He is good to do in all ways, a real pleasure to handle

Unfortunately due to my commitments and circumstances changing, he has not been in consistent work since the end of August. He has therefor lost his muscle, is sporting winter woollies and in need of a good tidy up and muscle building. Due to a bad yard choice, he was seen to weave if left in alone, however hasn’t done it since being moved and being in a better routine

So would be no problem for someone on a yard where he won’t be left on his own and has some routine. This is the only bad point I can say about him, but how truly awesome he is with everything else makes up for it. However I have reflected this vice and being out of work in his price

You are welcome to try him, however he currently has no rider. So you’d be seeing him at his worst. I will be completely honest with anyone who may be interested as a good home is paramount for my boy. He is a horse of a lifetime

Never raced or been in training. Incredibly sweet natured all-rounder.

Issie is a very sweet and easy mare. She works nicely in the school on the flat and isn't sharp or silly. She is a comfortable ride and very willing, she really does try very hard to please.

Issie has a fantastic jump! She loves the job and is very careful, with good scope. She has previously competed at 90cm unaffiliated level with a teenager and is very bold and forward to a fence. I suspect she would have scope to go on with the right rider. A competitive ride for a more competitive jockey or a confidence giving schoolmistress for a less experienced rider.

Suitable for a child, teenager or small adult. Ideal first or second horse.

Good to hack and handle on the ground. Vey straightforward, easy horse. No vices.

“Queenie” is looking for her new forever home, extremely sweet and kind and I would love to find her a 1 to 1 home where she can progress on to become a true all rounder

Since being backed at the end of last year she was turned away for the summer to mature and in the last month has been brought back into work. She is currently schooling nicely in all three paces, she has popped a few fences and shows to enjoy that too, she is also hacking out alone and in company, although she is still a little green she is extremely willing and always wants to please

As I bred her, and still have her sire and dam, she is only forsale as she didn’t grow big enough, I feel she is too young to become a brood mare and we feel she would be totally wasted if we was to keep her

A 5* home is of most importance to me
