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 does need an experienced rider as he takes his confidence from his people, and would excel in a dressage / hacking / all-rounder home.
An independent seat and ideally a dressage background are very useful for riding Merlin as he's built a bit like a kangaroo; he needs quite a lot of support from his rider, but he 100% returns this in effort! (Very light mouthed, but can get ahead of himself if you don't help him out.)
He's been with us for 9 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 which he's really enjoyed.
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 loads happily + has travelled fine in the past.
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.
