Heartbreaking sale due to no fault of his own – rider long term injury.
Merlin turns heads wherever he goes and has much talent to burn. Has competed to Elementary (still a little green at this level more so due to rider) and has commenced training some medium movements. Merlin has top breeding and conformation and has just turned 8 yrs old.
Sire – Trapalanda Dai Wynne
Dam – Imperial Magdelyn
Has achieved scores 70% plus in prelim and novice dressage. Also achieved National Qualifying score at official 5yr Young Dressage Pony Competition.
Many many wins in hand including 2016 All Welsh – Champion Senior Welsh D Gelding and WA Welsh Young Stock Champion Welsh D Gelding 2014 to list just a couple. Multiple Supremes and Champions in hand and ridden to date just way to many to list.
Registered EWA, Welsh Pony Society and APSB. Has attended dressage club on regular basis and under regular tuition and guidance of professional coach.
Needs experienced confident rider as Merlin has a cheeky streak and if he thinks he can get away with something he will try it on. Merlin at this point in his life is not a kids pony despite his size and handsomeness (and damn he knows he is handsome!). However do not let his size of 14.1hh fool you, he is a big pony and rides more like a mini warmblood than a pony and has 3 big paces.
Good to handle, trim (doesn’t need shoes!), float (angle is preferred however) and clip. Loves to be spoilt rotten and a happy pony to handle and have around which makes this all the much harder to make this decision.
Can be sold with all gear including Passier custom fit saddle, flexifit bridle and rugs.
This is a heartbreaking sale (never thought I would be writing this advert but I cannot see him go to waste!) and will be sold to the best of homes only. References will be requested. Time wasters need not apply. Nor will leases be considered.
I am in no rush to sell and the right home needs to be found for Merlin. Vet Checks welcome.
$15,000 without tack
$18,000 with tack.
