Current horses for Rehoming

Neroli

She is about 16hh 3years old, she can be grumpy in the stable and to tack up. She has been known to kick out sometimes in stable.
To ride she normally goes out with a lead on the gallops so we cannot be sure what she will be like on her own. She can be bit cold backed and can throw some good sized bucks in when fresh.
She wouldn’t take well to a rider bullying her about would need a more sympathetic experienced rider.
No novices please enquire this mare is stunning but she needs to go to a very experienced home.
She does have a splint on her off fore.

Waffleton

Video coming soon – 

16.3hh 4year old she is good to ride although can sometimes be a bit stubborn. This is when on the gallops though and in a different environment she would be ok. To handle she can be a bit grumpy in the stable, she puts her ears back and pulls faces and has bitten but her being turned out has done her alot of good mentally and physically. She didn’t not cope with racing at a young age due to her size so we have given her time to grow. She has been out for a while as she had time off to grow in winter then stayed out due to covid so ready to crack on with.

She has a vein that sticks out on her left fore. Never been an issue to her but is there.

Purely Prosecco (SOLD)

PURELY PROSECCO about 16hh rising 4 photos do her no justice. Lovely mare forward going make super all rounder or eventer no vices or injuries suitable for ROR £2000

Remission (SOLD)

REMISSION rising four very flashy athletic gelding. He is about 16.2hh tall but slim. I really want him to go to a professional he will go on to make top eventer. No vices injuries. He would also do well in too ROR classes. He can be quirky and is certainly not a novice ride.

Prosecco Princess (SOLD)

PROSECCO PRINCESS 15.2hh three year old filly un-raced. No vices or injuries just not good enough to race. Fantastic nature and attitude would make superb junior eventer. 

Laqab (SOLD)

LAQAB gelding super boy with big movement would hunt event dressage. Absolutely lovely horse he has hurdled and jumps really well. He is about 16.2hh but he does wind suck badly in a stable. Although he seems not too much out in a field. Would benefit going to someone who can turn him out a lot. He is priced to sell due to wind sucking but first to try him will buy him. Still has small nick to joint from last time he raced but not causing him any issues. Sound sane super super gelding

Shaw's Diamond (SOLD)

AVAILABLE – I have a stunning chestnut mare for loan with a view to buy. Loan would be about one year. She is about 16.2hh, no vices. She wouldn’t show due to injuring and scarring her back leg years ago but moved really well so would suit dressage etc. This is her after being dragged in fat from the field and being sat on after several years of not being ridden. She was a gem. Home would be vetted and she would need to retain heart bar shoes on for several months due to cracks in her feet from being without shoes and being a broodmare for several years. Please only
Apply if you would be wanting to buy her after her loan period. Her price would be minimal but I would want her to find her forever home, not be passed from pillar to post.

Piccupaprosecco (SOLD)

We have a lovely bay filly rising four about 15.3hh. No vices or injuries and would make a superb ROR or Eventer. Doesn’t buck rear etc lovely mover.

Shawwaslucky (SOLD)

This video and her photos do her no justice this filly is stunning. Will make too eventer or ROR she is rising four and about 16.2hh. Would prefer professionals to apply for this filly.
