Merlot is offered for adoption by Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society. Merlot is halter broke, leads and loads well. She also stands well for the farrier, grooming, and fly spraying. She stands for saddling and bridling and lets a rider mount. She's also easy to catch and seems to enjoy attention.
She walks and trots under saddle, and her foster home says it takes a little work to get her into the canter. She's still green and probably still learning to balance while cantering and carrying a rider. That skill should improve with time! Her foster home does say she'll test a new rider by stopping and swinging her head from side to side. If the rider pushes her forward, she goes on.
Her foster home also says she's a beautiful mover and has great potential in English riding disciplines. Her foster home says that if someone is interested in adopting her but doesn't have a lot of experience, she will give the adopter and Merlot a few lessons to help them get comfortable together.
