Wednesday Video from Kentucky Performance Products: Patrick the Mini Horse Takes on Kentucky XC

GTR Patricks Vindicator, or “Patrick” as he’s known by his friends, may only be 33 inches tall, but he’s got the heart and soul of a Grand Prix show jumper. He’s been showing off his knees-to-nose skills in demos at the Kentucky Three-Day Event since 2015 with growing popularity (He’s got nearly 30k followers on instagram!).

This year, his owner Sarah Schaaf decided to test his merit on Derek di Grazia’s formidable cross country course, and … it didn’t exactly go to plan — for Sarah that is.

Patrick: approved for cross country Sarah: needs conditioning. 😂😂😂💙😂

We’re laughing with you, not at you, Sarah! I promise. Fortunately, she was no worse for the wear, and found the bank up a lot easier.

Going up the ditch was a little easier than going down (for Sarah) 😂😂😂😂

Go Patrick. Go eventing.
