Merle is a 15hh chestnut leopard appaloosa gelding.

He is a total all-rounder schoolmaster that is an absolute delight in every way. An incredibly uncomplicated, honest and safe ride.

Merle has competed with much success in dressage - he has such a fantastic attitude at a show, always tries incredibly hard to please and performs to his best.

Some of his successes include :

-3rd Auckland-Manukau Dressage Group Championship Level 3 CN-C3, 3B Jan 2019
-1st Auckland-Manukau Dressage Group Level 3B Dec 2018
-3rd in level 3 AMDG registered dressage series overall
-Has won the level 1 and level 2 unregistered series overall at AMDG
- Won his first level 2 musical freestyle 2016
-Won level 1 dressage series overall Papatoe Ponyclub

He has done lots of jumping at home and out although I haven't competed him in the jumping ring as my focus was dressage. He has a lovely balanced rhythm and would suit the show hunter ring.

He has also done some working equitation and was well suited to this as he has the all-round aptitude for a lovely blend of dressage, jumping and other WE phases.

He has been hacked extensively and is the ultimate trail horse. He is happy and safe both alone and in company.

He does horsemanship tricks including lying down on command, standing on a box and running to a mark on command.

He has lovely conformation and would also excel in the appaloosa show ring.

Merle is a delight to handle and self loads on the float. He is an incredibly easy, uncomplicated and safe horse to have around. He is versatile and will happily plod along with someone or kick up a gear if this is what his rider asks.

Merle's registered name is Little Bushman. He is 14 years old.

Merle will only go to an approved home. He is a true gentleman in every way and deserves the very best in a home.
