This horse is a brilliant hunter with the kindest nature. Bally has hunted for 4 seasons and been XC schooling several times with numerous members of staff. A forward going and thinking horse who is reliable and safe.

Bally was recommended to us and has proven to be the unusual combination of being both safe and sensible enough for a first-time owner/or beginner rider, whilst also having enough about him for the more skilled rider to enjoy. 

Handsome with quality and substance, Bally has three correct and active paces suitable to be successful in pure dressage, yet also jumps anything and everything, and has proven himself to also be an able and bold hunter who becomes better and better at this job every time he goes out. 

Not least is his lovely sensitive nature which results in him being a pleasure to handle and ride100% sound, hack-out, jump all types of fences, load, clip, handle, etc.   A very easy, unusual horse who can carry a beginner rider of any weight calmly and safely yet also give highly experienced riders a thrill when he is asked to provide more.  These photos do not begin to do him justice!

This smart, well-moving and well-trained gelding joined us from a respected colleague of ours, Alec Miles, having also been recommended to us by Robert Pickles FBHS.

Colour: Dun
Breed: Park-Bred PRE (Andalusian)
Owner: LHS
Price: £3,250 ono

Spanish homebred dun mare on the BAPSH register. Dia is smart, compact, well moving, has masses of presence and excellent conformation.
She has been professionally raised since birth with everything correctly managed.

Dia has three correct paces and would be suited to pure dressage; however she has been produced as an all rounder and can go forward to any discipline you chose. Good to hack, alone or in company, not at all mareish and very easy to handle.
Dia is out of the graded PRE Sacristana (Saucy) by our palomino Spanish stallion Banderin (Andy). She also possesses the rare nCr cream gene that helps to pass on the sort-after coat colours of dun and palomino. Sadly for sale due to a change in our breeding programme – someone is going to have a huge amount of fun from this sensible, safe, kind, well-moving mare.diabody

16.2 hh homebred 4 year old dark grey gelding out of pure bred Spanish mare and the Irish Draught stallion Milligan, Euro combines the best of both breeds, having activity, forward paces and trainability of the Spanish against the stockiness, robustness and phlegmatic nature of the Irish Draught.
Born a grown-up, Euro is one of those horses who is almost impossible to ignore, being a super stamp of horse with three good paces, great conformation and a willing temperament, who is now backed, produced and ready to go off and do any discipline. With the added advantage of being safe, sensible and up to weight, he will also be able to carry most riders.
Working well on flat and over small fences, he is good to handle and hacks alone or in company.

He has had a busy life before we bought him, including successfully competing in one day events, Pony Club and show jumping competitions. He qualified for the 1m Show Jumping championships in Mullingar & his old owner (a 13yo) said he loves to jump and would jump all day long.  He is great to hack alone or in company, a sensitive horse who loves people and wants to please his rider. Good to shoe, box, clip and hack.

The wonderful Fraser has progressed many riders since during the years he has been with us.  Skilled on the flat and over fences, he is fundamentally a sensitive horse which has proven a huge hit for most that have had the pleasure of riding him. 

Fraser has also been out and seen much of life, such as competing in all three disciplines, cross-country schooling, hunting and sponsored rides.  His owner of many years, Helena has learnt much with this lovely horse and it is only due to her being off to Uni that this special boy finds himself on the market – ideally to remain at Lavant House Stables, but this is not essential.  The most important thing is to find a suitable new owner who can provide an excellent home to this very special horse.

Good to box, clip, shoe, catch, handle, etc. fully vacinated, sound and fit, Fraser is suitable as a first or second horse to a caring home.

This confident, sensible and quality gelding was purchased with four others during our trip to Southern Ireland, March 2013. 

Perfectly put together, Jasper is a classic Working Hunter Pony type who really ought to be in the show ring rather than a riding school, but my goodness does he know his job already.  Despite his young age he is a well used pony having been hunted in Ireland for two years by a (now) ten year old girl and she has done a super job producing him.

He is a fabulous type of pony that are usually very hard to find and he is very much the sort that would excel at whatever one decided to do with him.

Good looking bay Irish Sports Pony with 101 show jumping points on his card.
This is the sort of pony that everyone who works in the equine industry wants for their child. An out and out winner, he easily achieves 1m course double clears. With three good paces, excellent conformation and masses of presence Pablo is equally suitable for eventing, dressage or any type of Pony Club activity you care to name. Pablo is a straightforward, sound and easy to do in all respects: to ride, handle, clip, box, shoe, hack and in traffic. For sale through no fault of his own, we all love him to bits!

As a competitive pony, Pablo is active and suitable only as a second pony.

Pebbles is a “picture-perfect” pony with his striking colour, big round tummy and very dainty head.

The confident Pebbles really does know it all – he knows how to teach our smaller children to canter and (very small) jumps and has the perfect manners to match. Pebbles is the ideal starter pony and we know we are very lucky to have him with us.  He is safe on or off the lead rein and whilst he loves children, he is not so keen on adults.

Polo is the perfect second pony – he does everything well and confidently and certainly suits the child who prefers a more forward going pony – although he would never dream of taking off with his rider.  Good in all respects, Polo has done a lot of off site Pony Club activities as well as had success in show jumping and hunter trials.  He has so far been the perfect second pony for three successive owners who have all gone on to more advanced horses thanks to the confidence and skills this pony has provided them with.

Squeak is an ideal first pony and has proven these credentials by successfully introducing several young owners over the years into the skills of horse-ownership.  A pretty pony, he arrived with our other stars Eddie and Ozzie, and has participated in many Pony Club activities both on and off the lead rein.  Children can handle him very easily and being a bit of a character further endears him to his child riders!

Tubby is a smart little pony who has been there, seen it, done it and got the T-shirts – all of them! He has been a regular local Pony Club competitor and now in the twilight of his years we are privileged to have this multi-talented schoolmaster available to pass on his expertise to our child riders.
