Two Top Professionals:

1. Lucy Wiegersma’s bio confirms that she has a background firmly rooted in horses. Selected for the Bejing Olympics, Lucy regularly features amongst the top 5 riders in the FEI World Rankings and is the only rider to have won all three national titles, crowning her Junior and Young Rider Championship victories by becoming Senior British National Champion in 2006. Lucy can count Blenheim, Blair and Bramham amongst her three-day wins, and she narrowly missed out adding the Badminton title to her tally in 2008, when she finished second. She has nurtured and trained a string of young horses all with Championship medal-winning potential and is widely regarded as a rider tipped for the top.

2.Padraig McCarthy from Tipperary in the South of Ireland, has been involved in horses from a young age. Padraig spent close to a decade showjumping and training horses of all levels at different stables around Europe and in the USA learning his trade under the guidance of Rolf Goran Bengtsson, Max Hauri, and Hans Horn. His passion in life? – horses. Sourcing, breeding, producing, competing and selling high quality Irish sport horses to clients nationally and internationally is how Padraig divides his time. With a great eye for recognising talented young horses, Padraig has built up a wide client base who value his knowledge and experience.

Three Talented Horses

MGH Oughterard – ‘Keith’ is a big elegant horse with three excellent paces and a very good jumping technique. Started competing in July, going double clear in his first two BE100s and finishing 6th in West Wilts. In his first dressage competition of 2015 he won both of his classes on a score of 73%. Will be ready to step up to Novice in early Spring.

MGH Kings Street an extremely good looking Irish sports horses with world class bloodlines. His half sister “Instant Karma” is a successful international GP Showjumper in the USA. He also shares the same grandam as Irish Olympic team horse “Electric Cruise”, who placed individual 14th in London 2012. “Jimmy” jumped up to Newcomers successfully in 2014 and was also double clear in all nine of his BE events, including a 5th placing in his first Novice. Ultra careful jumper. Top potential as a showjumper, eventer, or equitation horse.

Killahurler Connect, known as Peggy, is a very attractive Irish Sport Horse with the attributes to be a high level eventer. She has three excellent paces and a very scopey jump. She came over from Ireland last autumn where she had been produced by a young rider. She has cross country schooled and done some unaffiliated jumping and dressage. Placed both runs so far this season.

Four fantastically successful partnerships

To underline the successes of these two talented trainers here is an outline of just a couple of their successfully produced horses:

2. Vendredi Biats a 2009 SF gelding by Winning Mood (Darco). Arrived in Warren Farm as a green 4y/o in December 2013. This very talented horse spent the Winter and Spring doing unaffiliated jumping and xc schooling. He was sold to Kitty King after doing his first BE90. With Kitty ‘Vendredi’ won and was placed several times in BE100’s in 2014.

3. MGH Grafton Street a 2008 ISH gelding by OBOS Quality. Purchased as a just broken 4y/o in Ireland, ‘Cyril AKA The Squirrel’ was sold to Sally Anne Egginton and produced by us through his 5y/o year.

As if this was not enough Lucy’s customers could not be happier:

Five fully satisfied customers

1. Megan Cummings – MGH Bingo Boy

I had been looking for a talented potential young event horse on and off for almost a year and after having two fail vettings I was beginning to think I would never find the right one. After finding Lucy’s website and seeing the numerous young horses available, I went to view a number of possible horses. I really benefitted from trying several horses side by side, which made comparison easier. The excellent facilities at Warren Farm enabled me to try them over cross-country fences and even water! Padraig and Lucy couldn’t have been more open and honest with their descriptions of the horses, and helped match the right horse to me. I didn’t feel under any pressure to make any hasty decisions and they were happy for me to come back a 2nd and 3rd visit before deciding on Bing! I fully recommend Padraig and Lucy to anyone looking for a horse, and couldn’t be any happier with my lovely boy Bing!

2. Alice Harvey

I am very grateful to Padraig for finding “Steve”. I had been looking for nearly a year for a suitable event and hunt horse, and after many disappointing viewings and a failed vetting I thought I would never find the right horse. Luckily a contact put me in touch with Padraig and Lucy who have both been extremely truthful and helpful from the beginning. The great facilities at Warren Farm allowed me to try steve in the school and in the open over a variety of cross country fences. Steve has been an absolute superstar in every way and the description was spot on! I trusted Padraig to find the right horse for me and he did just that, therefore I would not hesitate to recommend his services. Padraig and Lucy will be my first port of call if I ever need to buy again as I could not be happier with Steve!

3. Kitty King – Vendredi Biats

Having purchased a lovely five year old through Lucy and Padraig I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.They have some super horses and seem to want to match the right horse to the right rider rather than just sell a horse that isn’t suitable just to get a sale on the books. They were completely honest about the horse and told me more than they probably needed to. I will definitely be back down to look at horses in the near future.

​4. Michael Hayden

I have known Padraig and Lucy for a number of years as Padraig found one of my current top horses. After receiving a call from Padraig recently to say he had a  top jumping prospect, I travelled from Ireland to the UK to see the horse. She was everything he had said she was and I bought her straight away. When I was there I also bought a fantastic six year old which Padraig had arranged for me to see. I spend a lot of time travelling to see horses and am often frustrated when I travel a long way to see something that’s really not suitable. When Padraig tells me he has a good jumper, I know I won’t be disappointed.

5. Paul O’Shea – International Showjumper

I bought my multiple grand prix winning showjumper “Instant Karma” from Padraig as a six year old. Padraig had sourced Karma as a foal and produced her through the young horses classes. He has a great eye for talented horses and I value his opinion and judgment completely. I have recently travelled back from the USA and purchased two new grand prix prospects through Padraig
