    The beautiful Paddington Bear is for sale.

    17.1 shire cross (no recorded breeding in passport) microchipped. Bay Gelding.
    10 years old.
    Bear came over from Ireland in 2014 as a 6 year old and has been in the same home since when he was purchased as a novice ride for his now owner. Unfortunately he was, in reality green and a big nervous boy - and somewhat immature, so we turned him away and allowed him to mature at his own pace without pressure until July of this year.
    Bear is a delight to have on any yard, a real character and loves his people.
    Brilliant with farrier/vet/dentist/box and travel handle/tack and ride. Not a vice in the world.
    We believe, but cannot corroborate Bear was hunted in Ireland as a hireling.
    Never one single day sick or sorry. Loves his work and to be engaged and working.
    Moves with the lightness and ease of a much lighter stamp of horse and if he was staying with us we would show him in cob and hunter/riding type classes under saddle. The perfect all rounder.
    Bear only ever goes in a plain snaffle at all times with no gadgets needed. Stops on a dime and is very respectful considering his huge feet!
    Everyone who meets him falls in love with him.
    Bear has been under the expert tuition of a dressage rider here in Oxford to now pick up and continue his education.
    A horse like Bear comes along once in a lifetime and whilst we are keen to shout from the rooftops about his brilliance we must add that Bear should not be considered for a novice rider under any circumstances because he is so low mileage and has lived a very quiet life with us in a remote and rural location.
    When he was trialed by us 4 years ago it was through a main high street and he was 110% traffic proof - but since he has only been hacking out around the farm tracks and local countryside, seen all farm equipment and busy yards, and the small team of people who have ensured his well being to date.
    He has not been exposed to the bigger outside world for a few years.
    We found when he arrived he took a little while to trust new people and it's almost certainly a trait that will stay with him.
    Paddington will only be sold to the most understanding and sympathetic home, to someone who wants a horse of a lifetime and will continue his education with love and understanding and sympathetically.
    His nature is kind and a little cheeky and will thrive in a regular routine.
    Paddington Bear will almost certainly be the best all round horse for someone looking to do a bit of everything, pleasure hack, show, jump,hunt, dressage - and there is no reason he wouldn't drive as well!

    Full facilities will be available to trial Paddington but only to those who have an appreciation of him - time wasters and joy riders will not be entertained. At this stage in his education we won't allow many different people on his back - this is not fair for him.
    We believe he should fly through even the most stringent 5 star vetting and would actively encourage this be undertaken by any buyer.

    For any other details, pics and videos the owners representative can be contacted in the first instance as owner does not have FB. The sale will be conducted directly with the owner.

    Paddington Bear is priced competitively at £5,995 Ono for this very kind and unique horse.
