Horses for Sale
Robert can offer expert advice in finding your next horse. Through a wide range of contacts together with his own selection of quality animals suitable for showjumping and eventing, Robert can advise you on your next purchase – be it for competing at Amateur level or a potential Olympic prospect. Following discussion with the potential client, Robert will arrange viewings of horses that fit the agreed criteria. The client will be met at the airport, ferry port or if you are based in Ireland at a location that will suit both parties. Should accommodation be required, Robert can also look after this.
Young or green horses are welcome into the yard for careful and sympathetic schooling on the flat and over fences, as well as competitive experience.
