9 yr old, 16.2 hh, bay Hanoverian gelding by Escudo I out of a Graf Top mare
Eton was imported from Germany where he was competing in the 1.15m-1.20m jumpers. He showed in the 3' hunters in 2016, fox hunted the 2016-2017 season, and is now competing in the 1.00-1.10m jumpers, with plans to move up as his current rider's ability increases. He absolutely loves to jump, is unbelievably scopey and brave, with lovely technique, and is highly rideable. Great conformation and very attractive, in addition to being lovely to have in the barn, and he gets along well with other horses. Scope for the Grand Prixs, but easy enough for a Ch/AA or Jr-A/O rider.
Price: Upper five figures
7 yr old, 16.1 hh, gray TB gelding
Hero (reg. "Hereosaurus Rex") is a talented hunter prospect for the open and TB hunter divisions, and/or continue his fox hunting career. He retired sound from racing (sprinter). He has perfect form over fences, easy lead changes, is a lovely mover, and also super brave! He likes to go slow. He is currently jumping courses to 2'9" at home, and has hunted eleven times - once in the first and ten times in the hilltoppers/second field with Piedmont Fox Hounds and Middleburg Hunt. Goes in a rubber snaffle for everything, doesn't pull, stands at checks, easy to do in all ways with perfect manners. No vices, very sound, clean legs. Easy enough to be finished by a junior or amateur.
6 yr old, 16.2 hh, bay TB gelding
Sully (reg. "Soul Approval") is a talented prospect for field and show hunters. He has lovely form over fences, super scope, lead changes, is a very good mover, and has even done some BN/N-level XC schooling -- he is VERY brave! Very quiet and slow - he just lopes everywhere. He jumps what you point him at, in great form. He is currently jumping courses to 2'9" in the ring, and has hunted eleven times with Piedmont Foxhounds and Middleburg Hunt, once in the first field and ten times in the hilltoppers/second field. He will trot or canter the biggest fences, never pulls, stops and slows down himself to maintain an even pace with the horse in front of him, is happy to lead the group or be dead last, stands like a rock at checks, and goes in a rubber snaffle.
He raced very briefly (and unsuccessfully) on the flat track, and then was put into steeplechase training, but bowed his RF tendon (mid) last fall and his trainer decided not to race him. Based upon his tendon ultrasounds, he is cleared for everything except upper level eventing. Sully is easy enough to be finished by a junior or amateur. We gave him a few months off after the below videos in order for him to put on some weight. He is a very mild cribber when he eats his grain. Gets along with everyone, is bottom of the pecking order, and goes out in a mixed herd.
7 yr old, 16.2+ hh, bay Oldenburg mare
Athena was started at 4yrs with a focus on eventing. However, after two competitions, her original owners decided that she would not have the speed required for the upper levels, and sold her to an amateur rider. Athena has had a solid foundation in dressage and over fences. She has plenty of scope to be a 3'6" horse, and is VERY brave to the jumps. Beautiful floaty trot and very comfortable canter. Soft mouth. Hacks out beautifully alone or in company. Very sweet and gentle, laid back personality. Super easy around the barn, exceptional ground manners, and very good to trailer. No vices. A lovely prospect for showing, low-level eventing, or fox hunting.
Price: Off the market until spring/summer 2018. Please check back then.
