Horse Description: Super-sweet boy who needs the an adopter with both confidence and patience. Xavier is a really nice horse, but he lacks self-confidence and can be nervous. A rider who can stay calm during his stressful moments would be hugely beneficial. He is particular about saddle fit. Seems to like being ridden with a bareback pad! He is very forward in his gaits and quite comfortable.
Xavier absolutely loves doing ground work! He loves to be at liberty and will follow you everywhere without a lead. He has been introduced to the tarp, flag, pool noodles, bridges and baby pool as well as other obstacles. He loads well, stands tied and ground tied. A home that really focuses on the relationship on the ground first and foremost, will have the most success with him.
He can be very wary of new people, but he gives his heart and soul to the people that take the time to get to know him.
