"PATCHWORK STOLEN MOMENTS"

The child who never grows up. Chimera is that horse that has to get into everything. Destroy rugs, nips, pushy, rude, removes fly veils (himself and others) yet a total saint under saddle with an extremely forgiving, kind attitude. He is a very honest horse to ride, brave, willing. Could be a kid's pony. He is the sort of horse that you hope you are going to ride first at a competition when you have arrived late with very little warm up time (speaking from experience).



BREEDING

Chimera is a homebred Patchwork horse, the very first to wear the new shoulder brand. He is by Sheer Etiquette's brother, Patchwork Merlin and out of an elastic Northern DancerBenefit Performer mare. He and his full sister managed to miss out on the grey gene (1 in 4 chance - both parents were grey!)
He has a half brother, same sire, (Laurel View Tyson VDS) who is absolutely killing it in the dressage. Consistent scores of 70%+  in 4YO, 5YO, 6YO and at Elementary Level Dressage.


TRAINING
He has an established piaffe and passage in hand and under saddle, nearly established canter pirouettes, a record of 4 tempi changes; unlimited two's, if space never ran out. Chimera has attended venues such as Boneo Park, Elcho Park, Werribee and Horsham. He has also attended clinics with Thomas Muehlenbeck and Mary Hanna. Chimera has many enviable scores under his belt, particularly well rewarded for his elastic cat walk and extended trots. Despite regular scores over 68% in Medium Level, we believe he is only just beginning to show himself now and his future is looking very promising. 
In 2021, he has been accepted onto to the Victorian Dressage Development Squad - something only achievable through multiple high % scores within the qualification period!



COMPETITION RESULTS

Chimera  has proven himself time and time again at competitions as being cruisy and reliable.

In 2021 he sealed 4 consecutive wins at Medium Level with scores between 67-69%. He also won Medium Level Champion 3 times in a row! In his last 20 starts, he has not once been out of the placings; 14 of those were 3rd place or higher! He had his debut at Advanced Level in 2021, where he won on 67.3%! He's one to keep a close eye on!

He has a full sister, Patchwork Desired Fate, who was sold to VIC in 2014 as a 3yo. 

Chimera has been retained by stud and is not available for purchase
