** For Sale**Small Tour Schoolmaster **


We have taken the really sad decision to sell Bibi, he’s a 12y-o-o, 15.2hh Lusitano x German Warmblood, gelding

We absolutely love him but I really want to press on and ride at Big Tour, Bibi is a fantastic Small Tour horse. He’ll make a brilliant schoolmaster for someone who is brave and ballsy with support from a pro or an amateur on a budget.

The good bits…
Working at GP he’s got 1’s and good passage, piaffe is not yet test ready.
He hacks in company and is excellent in traffic.
A gentleman to handle, he’s excellent to clip, box, catch, shoe, travels and stands quietly.



Regularly stays away for training and shows and is easy and calm.

He’s the Yard favourite as he’s a dope on a rope to do!
Competed at the regionals at Advanced Medium in both straight and music classes he has super, easy changes.

He’s competed up to Inter 1 at Premier Leagues and locally with score of up to 66%
Has been ridden by Novice and nervous riders under supervision and been an excellent school master allowing them to ride tempi changes, passage and get a feel for piaffe.



The bad…Bibi can be sharp, having done working equitation in Portugal, and having been taught to spin he will whip round if frightened, however he doesn’t buck or rear.

Offers in the region of £15,000 his most recent Inter 1 rest can be seen on our FB page. For further information please call Emma on +44(0) 7843 585504

For Sale – Small dressage horse, with a big engine but sane brain!

Small dressage horse for sale, with a big engine but sane brain!

Dottie is a 15.2hh, 6-y-o bay mare by Scolari out of an R line mare. Totally non-spooky, she has a fantastic work ethic with three expressive paces and a super hind leg, she regularly hacks out and is good with all traffic, cyclists etc. She is working at Medium, with established simple changes, half-passes, shoulder-in and travers. Started changes and half-steps, she shows a natural ability to piaffe and passage.

Lightly competed this year she has regularly scored plus 70% in both Novice and Elelmentary, qualifying for the regionals at both levels in just 6 outings. She also represented Team Southern at the Home International at Hartpury this year.

Easy to do in all respects (clip, box, trailer, catch, shoe etc) she has a lovely, kind temperament and is used to children, dogs, chickens etc. She is completely non-mareish and is a pleasure to handle both at home and away.

She would be ideal for a young rider coming off ponies or for a smaller adult looking for a talented horse to train up the levels.

Home International

We had a truly great weekend as part of Team Southern, and representing England. A highlight surely has to be Hamish rolling not once but twice while being hand grazed!!!!!

MBD Selene was super, she tried really hard but just got a little stage struck in the indoor yesterday, but she finished 23rd in a huge Novice class of 40! Eclipsing me for a change… Mrs Mark and Scarduane Jack finished 8th individually in the Novice Restricted.
