FOR LOAN. Upstanding 17.2hh 15 year old thoughbred gelding.
Ex P2P, super armchair hunter who has hunted with the Beaufort for the last 4 seasons. Will gallop all day and hunt within the field but also happy to be hunted away on his own. Was produced off the racetrack by a 4* event rider so has been well schooled, but just hacked and hunted for the last 5 years. Jumps beautifully but will sometimes stop at the silliest things and can be spooky hacking on his own until he's properly fit! Never bucked or reared, no vices. Great on the ground and at home, safe with heavy traffic, combines, trailers, quads etc.. Fit for autumn hunting. Sadly for loan due to heavy work commitments. Can be seen in Tetbury.

15.3hh full Irish Draft gelding
Jimmy is an attractive 7 year old, 15.3hh full Irish draft gelding. He is well bred with Grange Bouncer as his grand sire. In his previous home he spent the winter hunting every Saturday and was impeccably behaved, jumping hedges etc. This summer he has competed unafilliated in CT at 90cm where he achieved a 33 dressage and lovely clear SJ. He has been cross country schooling proving to be very brave into water / skinnies / ditches. Jim has taken all this in his stride but is still green so would not be suitable for a complete novice. If not sold he will begin autumn hunting and his price will increase. Perfect to shoe, clip and load. No vices. Up to date with vacs and teeth. Open to vetting. Handsome, well-bred horse with bags of potential that would make somebody a seriously smart hunter/all-rounder or mother/daughter share. Please call or email Poppy

Welsh Section C Chestnut Gelding 13.1hh, 12yrs.
Charlie Fox has been in our family for 2 and a half years and has been sadly outgrown. He is a versatile pony who has competed at NSEA show jumping champs for the last 3 years (70, 80,90cm), won unaffiliated classes and competed for the Beaufort Hunt Pony Club. He was in the winning 80/85cm team at Gatcombe this year. He has evented both NSEA and PC including West Wilts, Stonar, Shipton Moyne, Rabson regularly in the ribbons in teams and individually. At tetrathlon he has been part of many successful mini (80) teams including Ledbury, Beaufort, Wylye Valley and the inter area at Bicton gaining plenty of 1400 rides. He has slip collected at the Gatcombe Festival of Eventing twice negotiating the heavy crowds calmly. He has Pony Raced at Cheltenham coming 4th out of a field of 10 behind the thoroughbreds. In his previous home he showed successfully to county level, we have done some Working Hunters but it's not really our thing. His greatest love is trail Hunting and he has rarely missed a Saturday with the Beaufort Hunt behaving beautifully in the large fields and jumping hedges, walls and timber with ease. A confident and competent jockey will have a huge amount of fun and success with him. He is easy to shoe, load, clip, wash etc and has only seen the vet for teeth and vacs whilst with us and his previous owners. A 5* hunting home is very important for this adored super star. Price includes wardrobe (Albion jump saddle by separate negotiation). Nr Castle Combe Contact Marianne Edwards
