Paddy of Liosin (2011)

(Crowns Ace of Pearl x Lux Z)



Graded and Licensed with the Anglo European Studbook


Paddy has been tested and is clear of WFFS-1


We purchased Paddy in utero with his dam, Liosin Lux.

Paddy is an exceptionally beautiful example of a modern day sporthorse. Standing at 17.2hh at six years old. This super stallion has ​an enormous presence, with a blindingly iridescent coat of gold and beautiful head.

This stallion just oozes quality, grace and power. 

His impressive size, beauty and hypnotic coat turns heads wherever he goes and he is starting to build quite a fan base whilst out and about in these early days of his competitive career having reached Novice level British Eventing last year and showing some real promise to rise through the levels! 

Paddy has the most laid back and relaxed nature, he has impeccable manners both on the ground and under saddle. 

A hooligan in the paddock, but when he comes in he understands that he has a job and behaves with absolute professionalism.

He is an incredibly kind and gentle character with a tremendous sense of responsibility and perfect manners when asked to work in any capacity.

A little about Paddy's breeding

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's education has been patient, methodical and very much with a mind to his rapid growth, physical and mental maturity. This careful approach has paid off, he is proving a joy to handle in every situation and is always willing to do his best to please. 

He has benefitted from professional training in all aspects from day one, he has accepted each lesson with good grace, willingness and enthusiasm. Paddy's greatest joy is jumping, especially across country with the wind in his mane and room to really gallop. But we have also been delighted to discover that he is much admired for his dressage and his first two outings saw him bring home the ribbons with a 2nd and 3rd placing!

Paddy was Graded in 2016 by the Anglo European Studbook with some fantastic comments and tremendous scores; 10 for his canter, 8 for his Scope, Posture and Balance and a 9 for his Attitude.

Paddy has produced some absolutely top class offspring, a number of which are currently in professional homes and whom we are looking forward to watching progress. He is currently not being used to cover from as it is time to completely focus on work!

His first four outings have seen him in the ribbons every time with superb scores for his dressage that earned him second and third places and a fourth for his first 90 three phase which would have been an easy first had he not had a pole down in the show jumping! His dressage was the best in his section and second overall on the day.

Paddy competed at BE100 in 2017. His British Eventing career start was exceptionally encouraging with good dressage score and bold solid cross country phases .  His first four unaffiliated outings saw him in the ribbons every time with some fantastic dressage scores and brave, accurate runs X-country.  It is a very exciting time in his career and his professional attitude has thrilled us all.

This year due to our move and immediate lack of rider Paddy has had rather an unproductive year in 2018 in part due to our move to Devon from the Cotswolds and subsequent loss of our wonderful rider. However that has now changed and Paddy is back in work and reaching full fitness.

Post Script - Paddy returned to Frankie Price in June 2019 and together they enjoyed a successful if fitful season at Novice British Eventing due to the weather and so many cancellations.  2020 is obvious;y on hold but he will be back....!
