Merlot and several other horses were removed from negligent owners by law enforcement and placed with BEHS. Merlot was with Bluebonnet for several years and passed through several foster homes, In 2015, she attended the Bluebonnet Horse Expo and went home with a new foster. That foster decided pretty quickly that she was going to adopt Merlot and make her her new riding horse. She returned her in 2018 when she was moving out of state. 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 needs work to develop a better canter, but she’s got great potential as a trail horse or pleasure horse.
Merlot will be competing under saddle in the Non-Pro Under Saddle division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with youth non-pro Elizabeth Rodriguez.
Adoption Fee – -$1,000
