Paddy XL – 11.2HH Gelding

Jan - 10 2016 | By

11.2HH White Gelding, Year of birth 2007.

XL by name, but certainly not in stature, this mini marvel was imported from Ireland by Sally in November 2015.

This utterly adorable little gelding would ideally suit as a first or second pony, as he is so quiet on and off the lead rein but has enough get up and go to make an entertaining ride for a more experienced jockey.

In this way he would be the perfect purchase for a family with two children at different stages in their riding.

Paddy is a delightfully forward yet totally responsive ride in the arena and does not require kicking along like so many ponies of his type. With a lovely soft little mouth, he will also stop and turn at the lightest touch.

Paddy also enjoys his jumping, so don’t let his diminutive physique fool you – he jumps as if he has springs in his heels! Happy to cruise around a little course of show jumps, he doesn’t mind fillers and is keen without being fizzy.

This little sweetheart is also a super hack, remaining just as rideable as he is in the arena and as you can see from his video, he is utterly unfazed by traffic.

The icing on the cake with this pony is his really forgiving temperament – he is a joy to handle and is well mannered to groom, tack up and lead, ambling along very quietly.

A pint sized pony with a huge heart, Paddy has so much to offer and really deserves a loving home where he is bound to become his new little jockey’s pride and joy.

Paddy is sold with a Leisure Horse Ireland passport.
