Patrick is a much admired gelding by Ballycotton (Irish Sport) Kingcroft Wicklow, Kingsway Diamond lines out of a Tb mare.
Patrick has taken my daughter from nervously jumping 80cm - competing up to 130cm, with many placings .
He has quickly become very experienced in the Junior Rider field, (3rd season) with potential for Young rider,
Pro Am, classes.
He loves his job! Absolutely no stop!! will jump from any spot, always takes the rider into the fence, with plenty of scope. Has jumped to 145 in training sessions, with ease. No matter the height or the difficulty of the course he just loves it, very easy with trebles, we don't believe he has reached his full potential yet, with huge scope and the heart and bravery of a lion, with a very impressive back end, he has plenty more to give.
We have owned Patrick for 7 years, he has only been on the show jumping circuit for the last 3 of those years with my daughter, before then he was a dressage and show hunter for myself , so rather a late starter to find his ideal career in Show Jumping.
Very correct in his schooling laterals, extensions inc half pass, flying changes, even can do a line of 3 times changes for fun!
Its a very a hard decision to sell him, but as this is Izzys last year Junior rider, and she is off to Uni this year it seems the right thing to do, Patrick has only been show jumped with Izzy, and rests for six months, just as Izzy has been at boarding school and evented other horses, he only does 6 local shows per year with us, so he has plenty of jumping years left in him, and never been over jumped.
Very easy to have around, no vices, absolute gentleman on the ground., in 7 years never a health issue, injury or any lameness.
