Merlin is a genuinely lovely horse, ready to give someone a lot of enjoyment as an all-rounder specialising in dressage, NH and hacking.
He's been with us for 7 years, and was backed by me using a combination of NH and classical dressage; full history is known. He's always been snaffle mouthed, and has no vices either on the ground or under saddle. He's working at around level 3+ / 4 in Parelli (though we haven't been formally assessed - this is an estimation).
Merlin hacks well alone and in company, is good in traffic / fields / tracks, and schools well. He's done trotting poles and popped a few small jumps, but I haven't had time to progress this (though he does seem to like it!).
He's good to catch, and with the farrier and vet. He doesn't have much experience loading and travelling as we don't have a trailer / box, but has been introduced to loading happily + has travelled fine in the past.
Merlin would suit a sensitive but confident rider (as he takes his confidence from his people), and would excel in a dressage / hacking / all-rounder home. He's not a novice ride as he is sensitive to both the leg and hand, making him most suitable for mature riders looking for a great partnership.
Merlin is sadly for sale due to me having a high maintenance older horse, resulting in a lack of time. Multiple viewings welcomed, open to vettings and instructor visits as would love to see this boy go to the right home.
