15hh 5yo chestnut Irish gelding. No breeding recorded.
Quality compact model with good bone, a very attractive stamp with a sweet outlook. A serious mover with an active trot and a super uphill, balanced canter. A comfortable and genuine ride, not sharp, nappy or strong. Trainable and willing, currently an unspoilt blank canvas with the basics ready for some mileage.
Good off the leg, starting to take the contact and showing some very promising work but we haven't done lots of schoolwork with him.
He is popping a course of fences really sweetly and is very straightforward to and from a fence. Jumps coloured and natural fences and is very bold - will be a super hunter and is ready for some hunter trials. Hasn't said no to anything we've asked so far. He is brilliant to hack, marches out and is un-phased by traffic. Will go first or last, good in open spaces. He has a bit about him and isn't a brain dead kickalong so isn't going to be a horse for a complete novice or wet weekend but he isn't a buzzy type either.
Started hound exercise this season showing a real aptitude for the job. Really brightens up and is forward and bold, preferring to be up near the front than kicking along behind. Will only continue to improve with each outing. Currently in a snaffle at all times.
Straightforward and rewarding young horse for a capable rider. Mannerly on the ground and wants to please but he is still a bit green and can be wary of strangers. Please keep this in mind when viewing. He likes people and attention but he does want someone he can trust and will really thrive from a close partnership. Once he knows and trust you he will go anywhere and do anything for you. No vices.
14.3hh 5yo reg Connemara gelding Capparoe Lad x Ballyard Prince. Quality little horse with a fantastic brain.
Very attractive, correct, upstanding model with a great front. Backed this year so still a bit green in the school but very willing and trainable. Is an ideal 'outside' horse as he is great to hack, ideal for fun rides and is showing himself to be a very promising hunter. Talented enough to be a great allrounder with a bit of work. Nice big shoulder but is a petite model so would best suit a rider under 5'4". Has the right temperament for a teen.
Moves very well with 3 good paces. Good mouth, not at all strong or silly. Jumps a fence really sweetly, has schooled over coloured poles and cross country fences. Super bold, not much phases him and he will give everything a try. Incredibly genuine in everything he does. A really sweet, kind, genuine, straightforward youngster.
Has started hound exercise this season which he takes in his stride, behaving beautifully and being both mannerly and bold. Happy to toddle along at the back or be midfield, will wait and doesn't get upset when horses go on ahead of him. Ready for the season to get going!
Great to hack, shows real maturity in his attitude and everything he does. Seen traffic, good in open spaces. Genuine, willing, trainable youngster with the basics in place and a bit of mileage, ready to be produced and get out and about. No vices, quirks or medical history.
Serious enquiries to call only - texts won't be answered.
16.3hh 6yo mare Lauriston x Silvio II
Kaida is a real quality model with plenty of ability and a kind sweet nature. Basics established and has been out and seen the world, now ready to be produced further with serious potential for dressage or eventing.
Given time to mature as a 4yo then started her ridden career last year as a 5yo. She was very straightforward to do and has been produced on slowly. Last year she draghunted, hunter trialed, cross country schooled, showjumped, dressaged and hacked.
Lovely attitude to her work, very willing and trainable. She has 3 massive paces with a good mouth and has started learning basic laterals. Shows great scope and ability over a fence, she really is a class prospect for sport.
Excellent to handle and do on the ground. Always kind. Good to hack. Always in a snaffle. Passed two full 5 stage vettings last year with x-rays and another one recently. Her full history is known from birth.
Kaida is available at a bargain price because she has recently returned to us after spending 7 months in the wrong home. As a result she has not progressed her education or experience and is weak in her way of going. We have been working on building her strength with a mix of schooling and hacking and she is showing a lovely willing attitude, improving every day, She is ready for a competent rider to continue her journey but she is not competition ready. Ideal for a competent rider looking for a quality horse on a budget.
On her most recent vetting a heart murmur was picked up only at the hardest point of exercise. This was not considered to be of great significance and she still passed the vetting. Happy to discuss further and she has no other vet history.
Right home is essential and we will not be letting her go otherwise.
16.2hh 5yo registered ISH gelding, almost full Irish Draught.
Compact model with great bone and a deep girth so he really takes up the leg without feeling at all like a big horse. Very comfortable ride with a good mouth, not at all strong or silly.
Hunted a full season last year in Ireland. Started hound exercise again this season and is ready to crack on! Great attitude, mannerly and bold to a fence. Super jumper and very smart looking. Has also hunter trialled this year where he was green but very willing and grew in confidence as he went round. Has the potential to be a super allrounder alongside a great hunter. Suitable for a lady or gentleman. Potential to be a Masters horse in time.
Working sweetly on the flat, just a bit green still in his schooling as he hasn't done a lot but is very willing and improves with every session. Lovely big canter and has the potential to do a lovely test in the future.
Super bold to a fence and is jumping coloured poles very sweetly. Takes you in without being strong and gives you a lovely feeling.
Excellent to hack, goes alone and in company and is very bold in everything he does. Will happily take the lead. Good with the traffic and in open spaces. Has been ridden and hacked out here by nervous riders but wouldn't be suitable for a complete novice due to still being a bit green. No quirks or vices.
16.2hh 9yo black KWPN gelding Vleut (Quick Star) x Ferro.
Tall, dark and handsome with the most amazing temperament - Rio really is the full package and truly one in a million. A real favourite on the yard amongst the whole team and part of the family.
Rio is the ultimate amateurs competition and leisure horse. He is well established, trustworthy, bold, straightforward and pretty! He isn't a high drive horse so is indifferent as to whether he is in a competition home or a happy hacking leisure home.
Rides very well on the flat with 3 expressive, uphill paces. Straight and correct, plenty of presence, would certainly do BD and shouldn't need much riding for a sub 30 BE test. Lateral work, medium work and flying changes. However! You do need to be able to ride a horse forward from your leg into a nice contact, or at least be willing to learn as his default position is to be above the verticle. For someone who can ride this isn't an issue but if you find a horse with a high head carriage intimidating and you don't know what to do about it then he is not for you. He is not a robot or a machine, if you ride him nicely he will go beautifully, gives you the most amazing feeling and is a real pleasure to ride. If you only know kick and pull, or have the feel and effectiveness of a wet noodle then you will struggle to get a tune. For someone wanting to take their riding to the next level and is willing to learn about riding kindly and correctly he would be the ultimate schoolmaster.
For jumping Rio is a real professional and such a confidence giver. He is super bold and careful both showjumping and cross country. He has excellent length of stride for cross country and is easily in the money in a jump off without needing to push or take any risks. Has done some BE with a previous owner. Has done elite level Pentathlon at 1.10m, an absolute testament to his incredible temperament and ability. Scope for at least Foxhunter. Clever, quick thinking and athletic. Ideal as an introductory competition horse or for someone who wants the chance to move a drama free horse up the levels.
A gentleman in all environments. He is the one everyone wants to take hacking, to their first competition, to the local hunter trial etc. Excellent both alone and in company, in open fields and on the roads. He is a real go anywhere, do anything type of horse and nothing phases him. Absolutely no vices and nothing sharp, silly or quirky about him. Happily living out in a herd in summer and in during the winter. Good to do in the stable, very affectionate and loves a cuddle but isn't mad keen on lots of grooming and mollycoddling. Ideal for teenager or competitive amateur for looking for a straightforward, talented horse for affiliated competition or riding club.
Very sad sale of a much loved horse, all enquiries will be throughly vetted before being allowed to view and if the right home isn’t found he will be kept on. Please call in the first instance to discuss - messages, e-mails and texts will NOT be answered.
