Merlin is a 14hh grey Connemara gelding. Born 21/09/2009. By Newlands Flanagan x Boonahburra Royal Mascot. Dual registered CPBSA and APSB.
Merlin has spent most of his life as our stud stallion, with minimal riding here and there. He was gelded December 2018 and began his ridden career. For this reason he is still very green under saddle for his age.
Merlin is easy to catch, he is friendly and loves attention. He is good to have his feet trimmed, he has great feet and has never been shod. He self loads easily onto the float and waits patiently for you to back him out even after the float is fully undone.
Merlin has attended working equitation rallies, a couple of dressage clinics and a pony club rally before corona locked everything down here in Victoria. Unfortunately for this reason he has not yet attended any competitions.
Merlin has been on numerous trail rides, along the road and on the beach. He also attended the 2019 Great Western Pleasure Ride, covering approx. 50kms over two days. Due to the high amount of kms we covered leading up and during this event Merlin wore Renegade hoof boots. These will come with him.
Merlin retains very few stallion traits. He has been ridden with, floated with and yarded next to mares since being gelded with no issues. He has yet to be paddocked with mares since being gelded however often ran with mares when a stallion. He has been paddocked with geldings with no issues.
Merlin has recently begun his jumping education and is showing great natural scope as well as a clear love for jumping. He is also a lovely mover and very balanced. He would be ideal in a competitive dressage or jumping home.
Merlin's dam was a talented performance pony and won CPBSA Performance Pony of the Year several years running. Merlin shows just as much talent, if not more, for jumping.
Merlin is for sale purely due to a lack of time on my part. He will not reach his full potential here and is too talented to sit in the paddock.
Merlin is sensitive and forward and for this reason would suit an experienced rider, either a competitive teen or adult.
