The dressage stallion par excellence. Paddox carries on the dam’s side the blood of the dressage progenitor Darwin, who just like Ferro has made a name for himself internationally. With the enormous talent for dressage that Paddox shows, the basis is there for him to reach the top in the future. Paddox more than fulfilled his dressage promise during the performance test. He scored high for his talent and even excelled in his canter. Paddox finished as the best dressage stallion of his year.
The character of Paddox is very good, the friendly stallion is eager to work and looks clear into the world. The beautiful Ferro son impressed during the PAVO cup in Ermelo. Paddox finished 2nd in the final and was honored as the best 4-year-old stallion of 2001. In 2002, Paddox participated in the World Championships for young dressage horses in Verden. The protocol of the international expert jury spoke of a very powerful and promising horse with a good conformation, a beautiful front and strong use of the hind leg. In the midst of a strong field of competitors he occupied a fantastic 7th place in the finals.
In 2003 Paddox again qualified for the World Championships for young dressage horses in Verden. After Marijke Folmer rode Paddox to a formidable 1st place in the small final, the successful duo came 6th in the big final. It goes without saying that Paddox has more than proven himself in the sport.
Practically all dressage tests in which Marijke Folmer and Paddox participated in 2004 and 2005 were concluded with a victory.
