Reflexion or Xion (pronounced C-Own) is a 16.1hh 2007 black bay Trakehner mare with two hind socks bred by Soverign Farms. Xion was sired by E.H. Lehndorff's, out of Reika xx (PSB) by Golden Act xx. Xion is in full training with a focus towards eventing and will remain in training until she finds her new home. She has excelled at every task set before her. She is willing, eager to please and forgiving. Her gaits are fluid, athletic and purposeful. She knows exactly where her feet are, is careful over the fences and has a great work ethic. This mare has had an all around approach taken with her training. She has been handled using natural horsemanship techniques. She can be ridden Western or English, has been out on the trail, can be ponied off of other horses, quads, golf carts etcÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ She is accustomed to small dogs jumping out by her feet while under saddle (not on purpose but what do you do with a pair of Jack Russels). She is good for the farrier, is currently shod all the way around though she has great feet and could go barefoot. She bathes easily, will stand quietly both tied and under saddle for long periods of time. She is not herd sour or arena sour in any way and is easy to bridle as she lowers her head easily with a touch. She has been trained to side pass towards her rider whether you are on a mounting block , fence or tree stump to make mounting easier. This mare is a head turner and has a real presence. She has been hauled off site and schooled over unfamiliar fences a few times as of the writing of this ad. She was beautifully calm and poised in the new environments. Not at all hot or difficult, she seemed interested, not at all worried; the trainer was very impressed! She will walk over bridges, stand on tires, walk over tarps, she has been introduced to banks and ditches. Xion jumps a 2'3" course of fences confidently and has done some grid work. When in training in California she schooled their fantastic cross country course and really seemed to enjoy the job! She has led dude rides in a bareback pad in a pinch and covered miles of trails in Northern California. Her stride covers the ground well and she is putting herself consistently at the right place to her fences without being micromanaged. Xion leg yields nicely, has excellent upward and downward transitions off the seat and will disengage her hind quarters or move her shoulder easily away from pressure. With her brain this mare could go any direction. She has the intelligence, movement and work ethic for dressage, the boldness and adventure seeking spirit of an eventer and the sensibility of a family trail horse; a rare combination with her breeding. My favorite thing about this mare is her personality. She is dignified, kind and loves to work. This mare is VERY intelligent and would be suitable for any level of rider who was receiving instruction and is a joy for more advanced riders as well with her ability to quickly learn new things. Xion is very careful with her feet and doesn't knock rails very often. She is honest and has very comfortable gaits. Xion is a joy to work with. Come and meet this wonderful mare. Asking $18,000. Check out this great video and see why! Price will increase with training. Please note this video was taken 60 days ago, Xion is much further along in her training now.
