Xenophon is a big bodied Spanish horse with a heart of gold and as brave as they come. He loves to do exhibitions and to show in any arena. He has shown in Wellington, and all over north Florida and at the IALHA National Championships. He is handled by his 75 yr old owner who is selling him only due to health reasons.
He can be ridden in the forest alone or with buddies. He has no health issues. He has been ridden by AA riders of all abilities and has been in full training since he was 5.
He is schooling all of fourth level and his flying change is very close to being automatic. He needs a rider that can balance him through the flying change until it becomes natural. His natural ability for piaffe helps the flying change. He is easy to ride in the snaffle bridle or the double bridle and is not electric if the rider makes mistakes.
Xenophon is a loving and uncomplicated horse in the barn and wants a new dance partner that will cherish him and ride him as he looks forward to his daily rides.
