Going 2 star, the sky's the limit: Paddy has the talent to take the right rider all the way. He's an elegant, leggy thoroughbred with three excellent paces that is rarely out of the placings and frequently beats professional riders with an older (55-yr-old) amateur rider. Paddy is expressive in the dressage with a particularly good canter, but an impressive trot as well. However, he's best known for his exceptional jumping ability. Paddy is extremely careful and only has a rail due to rider error, and even then, only ever one rail. He's jumped 1.20 schooling with ease and has the ability to be a pure show jumper. His is exceptional cross country taking all types of fences in his stride with no bogeys, happy with water, ditches, combinations. Just point and shoot. He is ridden in a snaffle at all times and doesn't pull if left to travel in his own rhythm, being extremely adjustable and responsive.
Paddy has an exceptional temperament and is just a joy to own. He's a real smoocher and tries his heart out.
The only reason this one-in-a-million horse is for sale is that his owner cannot take him any further and would like to see him race up the grades and perhaps go four star with the right rider.
Paddy is very highly thought of by all on the Victorian eventing circuit including Nat Davies (who is currently competing him) and Barry Roycroft. Show jump course designer Paul Williams has commented, "This horse is too good for eventing, he should be out show jumping."
Paddy is a sensitive horse and requires a quiet, sensitive rider as once he has your trust, he will do anything.
He's a bit of a 'plain Jane' to look at, but once he's performing, you'll struggle to find a more impressive horse.
If you look up results and see an E it's the rider has fallen off as I fall off all the time, one reason why I can't take him further.

Paddy has recently had his first few 1* starts where he has come 2nd and 10th, and taken it all in his stride. He will be a very competitive Melbourne Three Day 1* mount and sadly must be sold.
