Grass Court “Merlot” is a very athletic, scopey 16.1hh 5-year-old well suited for the jumper ring. He has schooled up to 3 foot and loves his job, with definite room to grow! During the last few months, he has also been exposed to cattle, gone cross country schooling, and experienced trail rides with a group and alone. During his cross country schooling, he was the confidence builder for the other horses at the water, as he was so brave and quiet about it. He can go from a gallop to standing quietly and patiently, no problem!

Merlot is incredibly affectionate and is a barn staff favorite, loves to be handled and groomed, and has no stall vices. He is sensitive under saddle, and prefers a quiet rider, so would best be suited for an intermediate rider to bring along.

He has wonderful ground manners for the farrier, and ties, clips, bathes and trailers like a dream. He is currently in full work, needing only front shoes. Merlot will be a fabulous addition to any showing program.
