He is solid WTC and had the Jefferies method done on him. He has been trail ridden many times, goes over creeks, through mud, desensitized to spooky objects, has been exposed to bear, turkey's, deer and cows, rides out solo, has been ponied, ridden with groups of horses, has been shown and has a soft contact mouth, he has a good mind, quiet manners and demeanor and really comfortable gaits. He stands at 16 hands and was bred for performance and movement. He has a good working temperament and is easy to catch. He will make a great horse for a AA or Junior rider. His Sires, Grandsire was Pyt a 4 times Natl Champion, and his dam has many sought after champion bloodlines such as Peavine, Chubasco, Champion Yorktown, Champion Valley View Supreme, Champion Wing Commander, Supreme Sultan etc. these are some outstanding bloodlines for working performance. The Georgian Grande breed has been noted for their temperament and willingness to please as well as their extreme intelligence and versatility to learn quickly. His canter is very smooth and he moves off the leg nicely but also listens to seat cues. He is certainly a people lover and pleaser and has the tendency to be in your back pocket. He does some liberty work as well. The Georgian Grandes are also recognized by USEF and USDF.

This gelding is a beautiful and very talented and athletic horse with lots of potential but will be best suited for upper dressage. He is also fun on the trail. Mercury is currently schooling on 1st level dressage movements, has been shown and has a good mind at the shows. He has no vices.
