Named for his lion heart ala legendary King Richard, Paladin Coeur de Lion proves it with every stride! A Friesian/Arabian cross born in 1997, Paladin performed with the Seattle Knights in 2002 with Dameon Willich before taking time out to do 4H gaming, barrel racing, and English pleasure. He returned in 2012 to carry Dame GeLeah, and really showed his heart as he fearlessly flew down the list like the lion for which he is named -- and the crowd did the roaring! Although full of fire on the field, Paladin’s quirky personality shines through; he enjoys quiet time with adoring fans, and lives for their approval, standing blissfully to receive pats and scritches on the side lines when the show is over. When not working with the Seattle Knights, Paladin can be found in the mountains, on the beach, or out on the trails with his devoted owner and partner, Rena Stone.
