Paddy is a quiet and safe approx 16hh 6 year old OTTB who has been retired since the end of 2019 after a short racing career. He was turned out before commencing his education in the three Olympic Disciplines. He has the potential and ability to excel in any discipline. He has been consistently schooled and given breaks to allow him to grow and mature.
He is established on the flat with all Novice movements and not far away from being able to do an Elementary test. He has been to countless training and schooling days at Silver Hills, Clarendon, Evans Park, Oaks Sport Horses, SIEC Clinics and has been to multiple different venues in a variety of Dressage, Show Jumping and Cross-Country lessons.
He is incredibly easy to handle and deal with, he ties up well at the float and will stand all day. He does not get separation anxiety and is happy to work on his own or in a group. Paddy is confidently jumping 90cm and his results will show that he is super careful. I am disappointed that COVID has put a pause on competing this beautiful boy, as I truly believe he will be a star one day.
He has fantastic conformation and a truly beautiful head on him and has been a dream to train and deal with. Paddy is flashy on the flat with that desired flick in his trot, making him stand out in a dressage arena. He has a steady and even pace and a very consistent frame.
At his first outing to pony club, he was ridden by a 13 year old, as I was competing my other young horse at another local show. From all reports, he was foot perfect and was not hot in the slightest. He has since been to many rally days has taken part in all pony club has to offer including games and showed his super nature of being very sensible and honest.
He will continue to be ridden and campaigned by myself until he is sold, and therefore with time, the price will rise accordingly. I truly enjoy riding Paddy every day and am proud of the horse that he has become. He is the horse I let my friends ride when they come over and they all love him as he is a true gentleman. He is only for sale as I have just acquired another OTT and work full time so cannot keep them all. Paddy only deserves the best of homes, who can spoil him rotten like he deserves.
Paddy is a straightforward and genuine ride that would be perfect for any keen rider who wants to enjoy continuing his education with lots of success in whatever discipline they choose.
Please note – as you can see in the photos Paddy does have a fatty lump on his neck. This has been checked by multiple vets and has never caused him any issues both when he raced and since then.
