FOR SALE (POA)
I purchased Paddy in utero and have had the privilege of owning this magnificent stallion for nine precious years. Though I have done my utmost to have him produced and given every opportunity to achieve his potential over the years, I am a professional breeder with neither the time nor finances to give him the opportunities. He so deserves a chance to be in a situation where he can be the star he is under saddle, continue to be a sire of really fantastic offspring and the centre of somebody specials world.
Paddy is an exceptionally beautiful example of a modern day sporthorse. Standing at 17.2hh. This super stallion has an enormous presence, with a blindingly iridescent coat of gold and the most beautiful head. This stallion just oozes quality, grace and power, he is a gentle natured who loves to be loved.
His impressive size, beauty and hypnotic coat turns heads wherever he goes and he has built quite a fan base over the years.
Paddy has the most laid back and relaxed nature, he has impeccable manners both on the ground and under saddle. He has mostly been ridden and handled by women and he is a gentleman in all situations; hacking alone or in company, hunting, at shows and when covering. A hooligan in the paddock who loves his life, but once the headcollar or bridle is on, he understands that he has a job and behaves with absolute professionalism.
He is an incredibly kind, generous natured character with perfect manners when asked to work in any capacity. He is very well schooled, is a straightforward, obedient and sensible ride with a huge established jump and low enough mileage that his potential has barely had opportunity to shine.
Paddy is vice free, is a dream to load and travel, comes to call and simply loves attention. He has never displayed any aggressive tendencies and has endless patience when being mane pulled, plaited, washed, with the farrier, dentist (he does not need sedating!) He is a dream to hack and will happily carry most riders carefully and with a great sense of responsibility.
Paddy is by Crown's Ace of Pearl a stallion who has proven himself versatile and demonstrated consistent results in all three of the Olympic disciplines.
Paddy's grandsire; Crown's Blue Pearl is both a showjumping International and the Danish Gold Medal winning stallion of the year 2007.
Paddy's dam sire is Olympic Lux, celebrated stallion and sire of International showjumpers; a dual purpose sire with many successful eventing progeny, he was sired by Lux Z, one of the most successful stallions in International showjumping. He competed at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. A winner of over a million euro, his pedigree is something of a blue chip dynasty in the world of International competition, with a litany of champions peppering every extension of the family tree!
Paddy has been used lightly as a breeding stallion but has sired numerous foals, all of whom have inherited his faultless temperament and willingness. He was Graded by the AES in 2016 with excellent scores including a 10 for his canter and 8's and 9's for his scope, attitude and posture/balance. He has sired two Graded and Licensed stallions and two youngsters shortly to commence serious careers as future eventers. He has two foals due from GFS mares in 2021. Paddy has not been trained to the dummy although he would be an easy candidate. Paddy has never stood at public stud despite many enquiries and he has not been frozen, this means that as a commercial stallion he has an untapped market with no semen held to interrupt his new owners market plans.
I would love to see Paddy in a home where he is appreciated for his huge capacity to bring joy. He really is a dream horse and will bring anybody who loves horses pleasure to behold. He will continue to produce superb foals with stunning looks, superb natures and be happy as long as he is loved. He loves eventing, particularly the cross country phase and is such an honest, trustworthy horse. He has evented to British Novice and despite this interrupted season he has managed to compete a few times less than he has been balloted! A respiratory infection put pay to his last event and was immediately diagnosed following his out of character unwillingness to jump and subsequent bit of a 'car crash' round in the SJ phase at his last event. He has now fully recovered and will be out one more time at Broadway before the seasons end, hopefully fit enough to redeem himself and end the season on a happier note before 2021.
Serious enquiries only please, he will only be going to the very best of homes. A substantial price is being asked but probably not as much as it should be and the right home is paramount!
