2017 | Dutch Warmblood | Gelding
(Negro x Limerick/Great Legend)

This elegant, athletic gelding is sired by the 2017 KWPN Stallion of the Year and FEI competitor Negro (Olympic Ferro). Negro was a successful competitor himself but is best known as the sire of the most successful dressage horse ever, Olympic Gold Medalist Valegro. Negro is known for instilling rideability and potential for collection into his offspring.

Merlin has three beautiful gaits and a fabulous temperament. He is the perfect combination of sensitive and sensible. He inherited his father’s strong hind-end and freedom in the shoulder. He is curious and learns quickly, easy to handle and fun to have around. He enjoys attention and is well behaved for grooming and the farrier. He already loads onto the trailer easily and trailers quietly.

Merlin’s dam’s last foal was awarded premium status and was highest scoring filly at her Oldenburg inspection. The dam’s sire, Legend (Lars), is by the international show jumper Gentleman, whose dam Amieka is a full sister to the great Lucky Boy son, Calypso. Legend’s damsire, Goudsmid also competed internationally for Holland.

With the talent sought after by the professional and a sweet disposition suitable for the amateur, Merlin has what it takes to make a top performance horse.
