Looks amazing!!

This smart, quick and athletic filly with superb movement is out of a Fleetwater Opposition mare, bred by Preci Spark who's full brother TREBLARE is currently competing successfully at intermediate level. Her sire, Holme Park Kobalt, "the Lloyds Bank black stallion" needs no introduction. This pedigree is world famous as Kostolany, Kobalt's sire was also sire to E H Gribaldi and Grandsire to E H Totilas.

"Glantara" is registered with AES, pink papered, microchipped, and has been handled since birth and well socialised. She has a lovely temperament, confident, friendly and a fast learner. She is halter broken.

This lovely filly has speed, agility and wonderful elevated paces. She has presence and a very look at me attitude when going through her paces. She will definitely stand out in competition. She is event and dressage bred but she is showing all signs of a true allrounder now at 9 months old.

She she is ready for her new home. Good in box, lovely stable manners, picks feet up, good with farrier, and wormed to date. Used to being turned out with other, well behaved horses.

Lovely temperament, wants to please.
She should make 16.1-16.3hh.
Will be suitable for any discipline.

Current pictures and videos available.
DOB 7/6/17.
£2,500 - priced to sell, absolute bargain for a filly of her quality and exceptional breeding. Good home more important than price.

Caernarfon, North Wales.
Kind and experienced home only for this special filly.
Tel 07867 125339 or pm for serious enquiries.

Pink papered hanoverian gelding
£4,500 – Littleport, Norfolk, United Kingdom

Pink papered Hanoverian gelding for sale. To make 16.2hh.
Sire is Classic Juan, who completed his 300 day performance test in Germany and has competed up to medium affiliated dressage, BE100 eventing, and SJ with success in each discipline.
Out of Hazard a Guess, a graded TB mare, who is by Primitive Rising (sire of WEG medal winner Cool Mountain.)
Bred by me but as I have recently had my own baby, I do not think I will have the time needed to do a young horse justice.
Jack is completely unspoilt and has been living out with other young stock. He is vaccinated, was gelded as a 2 year old, sees the farrier regularly and is wormed routinely.
Living out, he is not handled daily but will still come to call, is easy to catch and will walk in nicely from the field by himself.
He is very laid back and has been unphased by anything I have asked of him. He is ready for someone to start more serious groundwork with a view to backing later this year.
A real star for the future.
Videos available.
£4500 Ono.

For Sale as a Broodmare - Extremely well bred, rising 10 years, very dark brown Mare, 16.2hh. My lovely mare who I have owned since she was 11 months old has suffered a tear to her near hind DDFT. She has only ever been 1/10th lame at most and is now completely field sound, so there is a good chance she will come sound given plenty of time, but in the meantime she really needs to have a job to do. She has been brought on slowly and was gaining high 60%s/low 70%s at Elementary last year. She is Pink Papered and by Kyra Kyrklund's World Cup Horse, Master (who was by a Grade A showjumper) and out of a Donnersong (by Donnerhall) Mare. She has a very active hind leg and can really jump, although I only jumped at home to give her something else to think about and do. She would be a very versatile broodmare, producing dressage, showjumping, eventing and/or showing progeny. Sensible offers considered however home is of TOP PRIORITY, future new home will be vetted, so strictly NO Timewasters and/or Dealers please. Pictures show my mare from 11 months old. Please PM if seriously interested. Many thanks ... See MoreSee Less
