16.2hh 10yo Dark Brown Warmblood 3* Gelding
This striking former Clayton Fredericks ride is available in the UK due to his relocation to the States. Brookleigh is a very smart mover, a capable careful jumper and an incredibly uncomplicated ride.
Clayton and Brookleigh have had a successful partnership from the beginning. They won the Fontainebleau CCI1* in 2009, then Barroca d'Alva CCI2* and was 10th at Blenheim CCI3* in 2010.
Meanwhile, at the Saumur international three-day event in France, Clayton placed second in the international CCI two-star event. He led after the dressage on 44.3 penalties, and added just 1.2 time penalties in the cross country and jumped clear in the Show Jumping.
He has also had a further 2nd at the Fontainebleau CICO3* so is very well performed, but has relatively little mileage.
Can be viewed in the UK, and is currently based in Mary King's yard in Devon.
Has had some great form this season ridden by Emily King, including a win at Hambledon in the OI under 21 class.
One of Australia's most amazingly consistent 4* horses.
Floyd went 3 star in 2007 and has never not finished a competition (withdrawn once before dressage due to a foot abscess Olympics 2012) he has been to Adelaide CCI**** 3 times for two 2nd's and a 6th has won Melbourne CCI3.
This is a true International 4 star horse and a opportunity not to be missed, horses this genuine, consistent, honest, educated,seasoned and easy don’t come up for sale. He is the horse perfect for someone wanting to be selected onto their National team or someone wanting to be shown the way.
He is a very brave easy ride cross country and nothing is an issue for him..he isn't strong and he will jump anything without being wild. He is so consistent in his jumping he never changes, he also is a fabulous show jumper. He had only one fence down in 2012 and that was rider induced.. He show jumps in Mini Prix classes and 130cm classes and can win them. He is focused and fancy in the dressage arena with a extended trot eventers only dream of, especially on a Thoroughbred.
He is the most experienced horse Australia has at the moment, he has been so consistent for so long. He would be a asset to any countries national team with his incredible track record and easy ride, or a rider looking for an amazing horse to take them 4 star and show them the way
He has been Reserve horse for the 2008 and 2012 Australian Olympic Team.
CIC 3* 1st at Tonimbuk, Camperdown, Camden

"Floyd" has consistently been in the top 10 on the FEI World Event Horse Rankings, having been number 1 numerous times since 2008.
This is a sale due to to no fault of the horse and as I now fully own him, I have reduced the price.
This is an exceptional jumping horse that makes XC and SJ seem effortless. After a late start to competition this unraced thoroughbred has excelled in his short eventing career. A serious 3 or 4 star prospect, currently competing 2 star. Snaffle mouth in all phases. Scoring up to 68% in the dressage at international 1 star classes he is often in the top places after the dressage. If you are looking for a jumping freak that can also do a nice test then this is your horse. A compact build which makes him very suitable to a female or smaller male rider.
Results in 2012: 23rd Adelaide CCI2* - a rider error resulted in 20 pens XC, which marred an otherwise great performance from the horse including a clear SJ round on Sunday. One of only 6 in the whole class. 30th Goulburn CIC2* - went very slow (clear XC and SJ) 10th Mirrabooka CNC2* 3rd Camden CNC1* 15th SIEC CNC 2* 7th Equestriad CIC1* 6th Scone CNC 1* 1st SIEC Pre Novice

16.3 hh 11 yo Brown TB 2* Gelding
potential with a schoolmaster attitude
16.3hh Max is a “look at me” type of TB.
Currently competing at 2 star level but with all the makings of a real 4
lovely movement and a quality presence in the dressage arena. He is really
beginning to come into his own on the flat and promises to be very competitive
in this phase (his recent Adelaide 2012 CC2 star test can be viewed )
Max is brave
and honest XC. He has had 5 x 2 star starts and is ready for 3 star. Most
recently he jumped around Adelaide CCI2* (Nov 2012) XC with ease and text book
style. He is a quality jumping horse with a classic thoroughbred scopey gallop.
At 11 years
old, he has the maturity to go on and handle 3 star – without the battered legs
and joints. He did not race, and was a late starter and has been taken slowly
and correctly through the grades to 2 star. He was partnered with a
professional rider in 2012 as his owner was no longer eventing. He has quickly
proven that he is a serious horse - finishing in the top 3 at Canberra CIC2*
around a very tough track at only his fourth 2 star start.
Max is bursting at the seams with talent and potential to go on, so whether you
are after your next top level horse or an invaluable and genuine schoolmaster,
Max would love to do the job.

James has impeccable manners on the ground, easy to do anything with and a pleasure to own. James has been extremely successful in 2 star, has started his 3* career with great success recently winning the CCI3* at Camperdown in April 2013 and would be an amazing asset for someone wishing to go up the grades with 4* in mind.

2011 Australian Eventing Horse of the Year
F1 Pharinelli is one of the best-performed horses in Australia today.
Obedient and reliable in the dressage, honest, fast and safe cross country and solid in the showjumping, Pharinelli would be perfect for an ambitious rider wanting to gain experience – and enjoy successes along the way.
Pharinelli’s performances, which include NSW State Eventing Champion in 2010 and 2011, and third place at 4 star level at the Adelaide International Horse Trials, led to him being named the 2011 Australian Eventing Horse of the Year. Pharinelli was also shortlisted for the Australian team at the London Olympics.
Pharinelli has a wonderful attitude to his work, and is a pleasure to campaign. He is regrettably offered for sale to only the best of homes.
by Regardez Moi (Heath Ryan's current GP Dressage Horse)
Ruban Son's performances are exceptional, he has been unbeaten at 2* level this 2012 season, winning all three of the Major CIC 2*'s at Tonimbuk, Wandin and Camperdown. He is on our National Futures Squad and is very consistent in all three phases and is showing potential as a top class 3/4* horse.
His CCI performances to date are a 3rd at Melbourne CCI* from 65 competitors in June 2011, and 2nd at Lakes and Craters CCI** in Dec 2011.
In great form, 5th in the CIC3* section, at the NSW State Eventing Championships at Goulburn Oct 2012.
He is a very TB'y type, gallops well and is a good solid jumper. He has good movement and is schooled to a high standard on the flat. He dressage's and Show Jump's in a snaffle and XC's in a dutch gag, but is not strong. Unfortunately he is a wind-sucker but is much improved when wearing a collar.
'Jack in a Box' is one of the most talented, stylish horses on the Eventing scene.
Jack is one of those horses that everyone knows and loves, with his character and personality making him a lot of fun to own.
He is competing at 2* level in Eventing and also Medium level dressage, with the potential to go much higher in both disciplines. Possessing excellent changes and half pass, an amazing extended trot and a naturally up-hill build, he's light to ride and always well placed after dressage.
With a great jump and plenty of scope he's easily training up to 1.30m. He's extremely straightforward to ride at competitions, and his natural braveness cross-country and big ground-covering stride make it easy to go under time.
Horses like Jack are few and far between.
1st Goulburn CIC*
1st SIEC CIC*
3rd Tamworth 2* C/T
In great form, 11th in the competitive 59 horse CIC2* section, at the NSW State Eventing Championships at Goulburn Oct 2012.
Eli is successfully competing 2 star level eventing and show jumping 1.30m.
He is brave, honest and reliable cross country and is always a consistent performer. He is always scoring over 60% in the dressage ring.
Eli is a quiet natured horse and easy to have around. He would suit an intermediate rider looking to move up the grades.
Some performances include:
7th Albury CIC** (First 2 star)
7th Wandin CIC*
6th Lakes and Craters CCI*
2nd Boneo Showjumping 1.20m
He will be competing in the 2*at the Melbourne International in June
Eli has quickly moved up the grades, going from Pre Novice to 2 star in six months. This is due to his great work ethic and trainable nature. Eli has no vices and is easy to shoe and float. Vet check welcome.
This lovely black gelding is currently competing 1* and ready for 2* this season. He possesses stunning looks and natural ability in both jumping and dressage, as well as an impeccable temperament. He has been professionally trained to his current level and has also been competed by a teenager up to pre novice level. He is an absolute gentleman to have around and to do anything with.
He has to date finished three 1* 3 day events and is a rock solid competitor. He is a safe ride XC, ridden in a snaffle for all three phases, is very tough and a definite 3* prospect.
His bloodlines are full of elite performance horses such as Donnerhall and his grandfather, Skipcello Whenua, himself a 2* Eventer in the UK and also a full brother to Gershwin who finished 8th at the Atlanta Olympics with Andrew Hoy.
He is only offered for sale due to his current rider being too big and heavy to ride him around 3* courses , he would suit a lighter rider to ride him at the top level.
