Paddy is a super fun pony that would suit a competitive child or teenager. He has the kindest, cheeky temperament and I have no doubt he will be a seriously competitive WHP / event pony, or pony club allrounder.
Paddy is wise beyond his years and worth his weight in gold. He has been broken and in work for just a few months taking everything in his stride. He is hacking alone and in company quietly and confidently, schooling well and now boldly jumping 85cm. Today he took a 4 year old novice child on the lead rein with no issues whatsoever.
Doesn't ever bite, kick, rear, buck or nap. No vices.
Always snaffle mouthed, and not strong or silly. We have struggled with turnout due to the weather so he has been stabled for the past 2 weeks, with no change in his attitude or rideability.
Easy for farrier (he is barefoot) load, catch, lunge/long rein. Very good for his first clip a few weeks ago, just a little ticklish around his stomach.
Paddy is too quality to be wasted with me as I just feel I am a fraction too big for him, if he was 15 hands he would be staying.
He will make a young person very happy and will undoubtedly be a regular in the ribbons. When lockdown is lifted, if not sold will be out XC schooling at the first opportunity.
Not tested hoof wall as sire is N/N, dam not tested, therefore he can not be affected by HWSD. He has excellent feet.
Open to vet, fylde saddle negotiable.
