Paddy is a 14.1hh papered Connemara aged 9 who came to us just over 3 years ago as a very green 6 year old. With schooling he turned into a loving, fun and competent Pony Club pony. Paddy competed up to open level in SJ and XC and also turned his hoof to polocrosse where he went to PC Champs in 2016. He has previously been ridden by competent novices including a 10 year old girl as well as hunting and competing with more able jockeys. He is polite and easy to do. He will turn out alone, or with mares or geldings. He is not confrontational and so will not do well in a large herd. He can be cheeky when being caught but nothing that a handful of treats doesn’t cure. He is good for the farrier and vet and is good to travel in a trailer or lorry. Paddy will stand beside the lorry nicely at shows and is never phased by going away and staying over in new yards, even by himself.
Paddy went on loan last year but came back having lost a lot of condition. Subsequently he has had 3 months off and veterinary input. The vet is now happy with his condition and is ready for a new home and a new job. He has regained condition and has come back into work and is quite lively at the moment and can put in a buck. He did this when we first got him and this improved with schooling. His teeth, back and vaccinations are up to date. He is shod in front. He does have a melanoma to the side of his face so will not show. This has not increased in size in the last 2 years and does not affect riding him.
His ideal new home will either be a hunting or hacking home as he is very jaded in the school now. Alternatively I would be happy for him to go as a project but he will need starting again as is very unbalanced and reluctant to work in the school. He is not ready to go out as a PC or competition pony. Maybe in the future with patience and time he will do this job as nicely for someone else as he has for us. At the moment this lovely boy doesn’t have a job and he is too good to go to waste in the field.
