1. ‘Jumping machine’

Height: 15.3hh

Gender: mare

Age: six

Selling points: “The ultimate pocket rocket and jumping machine! This mare is a competitive prospect for eventing, pure showjumping, team chasing or tetrathlon. She has so far competed to BE100. As well as being incredibly talented, Coco is enormous fun and suitable for an amateur or teenager. She has competed to BE100 with her teenage jockey, who produced her from a four-year-old. Coco works well on the flat with a good mouth and uphill paces. A quieter rider will get a better test from her as she is forward and may not suit a very busy or tense flat rider. To jump Coco is an absolute machine. She has never had a cross-country jumping fault and has only ever been penalised for going too fast. She is super bold with scope to burn and never stops. She would also be a highly competitive prospect for British Showjumping (BS). She is careful, not bothered by fillers and is very quick against the clock. We could definitely also see Coco excelling team chasing. She has hunted this season with a teenager. Coco is brilliant to handle on the ground with no stable vices. She is great to hack in company but can nap on her own. She is good in traffic and open spaces.”

5. ‘Keen to learn

Height: 16hh

Gender: mare

Age: four

Selling points: “This mare was only recently broken but is progressing well. She is starting to work well on the flat, but is obviously still quite green. She is an athletic type that moves completely straight. She hacks out very confidently on her own or in company. She has been showjump and cross-country schooling and showed a natural aptitude for jumping — she was not bothered by fillers, ditches, banks or water. She seemed to be quite brave and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. She is demonstrating a very grown up attitude for a horse so young. She is easy to handle and has been shod and clipped. She loads and travels well. This little mare would make an ideal project for someone with the knowledge, experience and time to bring on a young horse. She appears to be keen to learn and nicely forward thinking.”
