14.2h, rising 4 years old, Knockanish Elvis (Merlin to his friends) is a registered Connemara gelding by Robe Thunder out of a Caherlistrane Sammy mare.
Merlin has the most fabulous, kind, gentle temperament and once he knows you he always does his utmost to please.
He did a ton of groundwork with me here through the summer, he long reins extremely well and has never been silly about being girthed up or anything, then he has been backed and lightly ridden away in the last couple of months.
He is a very sweet, patient fella, ties up on the yard very happily, loads and travels well, he is the first one at the gate to be caught, is content out in the field with mares and geldings and either leads in on his own or in a bunch of 2 or 3.
Merlin has been quietly produced here with us as he was extremely nervous when he first arrived from Ireland at the beginning of the summer. It is a massive testament to his temperament that despite how absolutely feral he was, it very quickly became apparent that he was fantastically genuine and kind as he learnt to trust people.
Merlin has hacked out on his own and in company, he is happy leading the way, he’s stepped over logs out on the tracks and had a canter and has had a trot round the school, he stands patiently at the mounting block. He is not a spooky type and is a very trusting soul, he has had a pop over some coloured poles and xc fences on the lunge and is straight forward with ditches, water, steps etc and he has a GREAT back end over a fence!
Merlin is now back out in the field for a break, his perfect partner would be someone who enjoys building a bond with their horse, putting the foundations in for the future without overdoing a youngster.
He has all the potential to be a fabulous PC/RC/ BS/BD/BE pony in the future with the right training and a sympathetic, experienced rider to teach him about the world.
Merlin is based here at Rabson Manor in Wiltshire with us, SN4 9QF

A bit of a reduction in price if he’s bought on his break at the mo rather than me getting him in and going again, otherwise I look forward to seeing how fab he is going to be if I keep him till next year!
