SAR Tiki Rock On was born and raised at Sabiq Arabian Ranch. At seven years old, Ron and Carol sent him to Darlene Merlich, an experienced endurance rider, to be campaigned. Rock and Darlene hit it off famously and completed successfully for 4 endurance seasons. In that time Rock completed over 1200 endurance miles, earning numerous top tens and seven Best Condition awards.

Rock finished the grueling Tevis Cup in 2014, along side his full brother, SAR Tiki FS Warrior.

As a stallion on the endurance circuit, Rock was repeatedly complimented on his outstanding manners in camp and on the trail. Many riders commented that they didn’t even know they were riding alongside a stallion. The veterinarians at Bend Equine, where Rock is collected, always comment on how Rock is one of their favorite stallions to work with, due to his good manners and manageability.

Rock loves Bend Equine. He doesn’t need a tease mare for his collections, much preferring the phantom.

Rock was injured in a tragic pasture accident in late 2015, suffering a proximal humeral fracture. Against the odds, Rock has returned to riding and breeding soundness.

While he will not return to endurance competition, Rock is happy to be competing in Equine Trail Sports, doing some trail riding, and getting to chase a few cows, oh and breed a mare (or the phantom!) when asked.

Rock has tested negative for all congenital syndromes.
