For Sale £2,300 Merlin
Merlin – 11.2 shetland x cob – 5 year old
Merlin is a cheeky chappy that is looking for a new home only due to having to reduce our number of school horses. He has been on loan to us for the last two years and is for sale on behalf of owner. He can be used as a lead rein and first ridden but is better as a second ridden as he can buck if rider is off balance and can get excitable/strong out hacking in open spaces or out in new places.
He can be ridden off the lead rein out hacking and is calmer when at the front.
He has a very good jump on him and isn’t spooky. With us he has done XC, fun rides, showjumping, handy pony. As well as used in all lessons from lead rein upwards.
We think he’d make a fantastic pc/games/sj pony.
As he is very stocky, he can be ridden by small adults (8st or less). He is still young at 5 so if a child rider, needs horsey parents.
