Many persons associate the Patrick’s name to box-office hits “Dirty Dancing” and “Ghost”. However, there was another side to the actor that not many people knew.
He was an active member of the Arabian Horse Network for many years and a recipient of numerous awards with his champion chestnut Arabian stallion, Tammen. Patrick got involved in rodeo as a teen, following in his father's footstep.
