Feb 2012: Paddy has started work on his tempi changes and has also begun his canter pirouette training. He is trying really hard. We have had one line of 3 x 4 time changes which were very pleasing. In the canter pirouettes we are working on controlling the size and rhythm of each stride. Paddy is coping very well.
August 2011: Paddy Wiliams awarded "Reserve Medium Champion" at Atherton ** Dressage Championship
August 2011: "We have some homework to work on before his next test at the Atherton 2* Championships on the 13th & 14th August, where I will be looking to improve on his percentage by at least 3%"; Is what I wrote after the Cairns (FNEG)** Championships in July.
And that is what we did plus more!! Paddy achieved 67.43% in the Medium 4C on the Sunday. He was in lovely outline with a focused attitude and listened with eagerness. It was a pleasure to ride and even with a couple of mistakes (one late flying change, changed behind in the medium back to collected canter transition) we were still up there playing with the big guys.
For more information on Paddy Williams please see the"our team" section of this website or even under "horses for sale". His results are listed in the "results" section.
Price - $25,000
