14.2hh 13yo cob gelding.
Merlin is an exceptional hunter with 6 straight verified seasons under his belt. He is a real thruster type who likes to be up the front where the action is jumping the big stuff. Great with hounds, always mannerly but really knows the job and wants someone who will let him get on with it. Super bold, jumps anything and everything including hedges, walls, rails and ditches – no one has told him that he’s only little and he never says no. Highly admired on the field with a bit of a fanbase! Merlin would prefer a rider who is as bold as he is, looking for a top day on the field with a super reliable turbo cob!
Great to hack, not phased by traffic. Not at all spooky or silly. Leads or follows, goes alone and in company. He is so incredibly bold with an enormous amount of scope and excellent technique so he would certainly showjump in the off season. Would also be ideal for hunter trials, tetrathlon, fun rides, beach rides etc. He has definitely got the fun factor.
Merlin does not enjoy working in the school. He can work sweetly and is certainly obedient enough but he would definitely rather be doing something else. He will not suit a home where he would be expected to spend a lot of time in the school and isn’t interested in doing a dressage test.
Excellent to handle on the ground with absolutely no quirks or vices, ifs or buts. Very straightforward in every way and an easy keeper just a normal cheeky pony! Merlin would like to go to a predominantly hunting home with a capable and confident rider for maximum enjoyment.
