    Stan is an impressive 16.2h WBxTB gelding. His sire, Stanhopes Diddicoy, showjumped successfully and won multiple showing championships, including Royal Windsor and Hickstead, as well as competing internationally at dressage, and was still out on the gallops until his death last year at 27.


    With a sire like that, handsome Stan should have a few good years in him yet! He will turn 18 this year and has had a successful career as a dressage horse, schooled up to advanced medium. We bought him at 15, as a schoolmaster to take a middle-aged lady from novice up to competing at affiliated medium. He’s made a great job of that and we now feel he deserves to have a change of scenery, and a bit more fun.

    There could be a late career for Stan in showing – he’s a horse with great presence. But he would also suit someone who only wants to ride a few times a week and mainly wants to hack on a (mostly!) well-behaved, comfortable mount. He could easily take a new rider out to a bit of low-level dressage competition, but we would like his new home to be one in which he won’t be asked to continually school intensively. He has jumped with his previous owner.

    Stan is sound and fit; he has been well looked-after throughout his life. He is up to date with vaccinations; has no vices; is easy to shoe and clip, and likes being brushed. He has no fear of loading, and travels well, arriving calm and confident even at new venues. He can be hacked alone, although he enjoys it more when he goes in company (he is not the world’s bravest when faced with huge farm machinery on very narrow roads). He likes turn out, but is used to living in at night in the winter. He doesn’t really hot up if he can’t get out for a few days because of bad weather and wouldn’t be happy out 24/7.

    Stan is priced to sell to a kind and knowledgeable rider looking for a feeling of class on a budget. Serious enquiries by phone call please - we are unable to reply to text messages.
