17.2hh Grey Gelding born 1997


Please welcome our extremely distinguished new boy, Merlin. He's a 21 year old who stands at a whopping 17.2hh and has given 14 years of impeccable service. In his long and distinguished career he has taken part in numerous high profile parades including the Queen’s Birthday Parade, The Lord Mayor’s Show, The Royal Wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and HM The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Parade. Merlin was often the charger for Senior Household Division Officers on State Ceremonial Parades. He was the number one charger at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst and has even been trained to walk upstairs! He is described by those who worked with him as ‘an absolute gent: both kind and loving to work with’.

We hope you enjoy your much deserved retirement Merlin, he certainly looks very happy to be here.
