|Lorenzo and Jasmine|
|Jasmine is a 13.1 compact bay mare. She is 16, well schooled and has done lots of dressage /jumping. She has had both of her hocks injected so is not now suitable for competition dressage and will most likely need this every year or so. Snaffle mouthed, remarkably unspooky, bomb proof in traffic, enthusiastic about work, keeps up with big horses whilst not being bothered if they want to go off for a faster canter. Likes jumping, pops little ones easily but I would not ask her to do a larger course. Can be marish, sometimes kicks out if another horse rushes up behind. Good doer, lives out, easy to catch and do, box, shoe. Does not buck or rear. leads from another horse, would be a sweet lead rein pony. Needs a loving home.
£950 including her kit.
14.1 Well bred Dutch New Forest gelding. Lorenzo has been successful in all disciplines on pony club/ school teams, and as an individual, winning NSEA County qualifier, qualifying for Bury Farm and for Pony Club championships in Tetrathlon completing 90cm XC course with ease. Has a bold, clean jump with great hind action happily clearing 90cm on a track and 110 in schooling. He can produce a good dressage test (top 10 at Stonar ODE and double clear). He has hunted; foxhounds / bloodhounds, jumping everything, standing when needed. Can be strong XC. At home he is very easy to do in all ways, perfectly content to be in a busy (dog and children filled) yard. Good to box, shoe, clip and in traffic. My son has moved to senior school and lost interest hence this sad sale. Lorenzo needs a competitive, competent jockey and will only go to a loving home. £4750 including kit except saddle.

In Silence in the Desert, four young people are caught up on opposing sides, yet bound to one another by pre-war friendship and new found love. As the story progresses, Henri, Leo, Bill, and Elisabeth, are forced into conflicting allegiances incompatible with the ethics of their upbringing.
“I find the interaction of wartime events and young people’s lives a fascinating subject”, says David. “I am always on the look-out for when these are overlooked or portrayed incorrectly in popular history.”

|TOP CLASS HUNTING PONY |
|Gordon is a very handsome 13.2hh, 14 year old bay gelding. A super kind little chap with an easy going temperament. Gordon LOVES hunting and will look after a keen mini future huntsman/huntress like no other! Gordon is well hunted with the Beaufort and North Cotswold, and has been seen out hunting this season. Out hunting he jumps very well, he's not too speedy and not too slow. He will stand when he needs to, do gates and is great with hounds. Gordon has good flatwork with a super canter and does a lovely dressage test. Gordon has attended pony club camps and rallies, but is not a competition pony. Gordon has done lead rein and is good on the lead rein, but is not a lead rein hunting pony. Gordon ideally is looking for a hunting home as it's his no1 activity. He's great to hack on the road and in big open spaces. He's a chunky pony so would also take a small adult. Loves attention and fuss, and well mannered to handle. Sad sale, but Priced to sell as competition pony already in situ, and he is wasted at home. References from previous owners and loan home.
