Portuguese School of Equestrian Art

APP1116 Xajeco SF 0472

23 March 2003 was a day marked in Alter by the birth of Xajeco, son of Joca and Quinjara. Revealing skills for the most demanding exercises in the Portuguese School of Equestrian Art performances, Xajeco was selected to join the school where he met up with Z-orro and Dihego who all share the same maternal grandfather, Jacaré II. His speciality pieces are the “Airs above the Ground" by hand and ridden – particularly standing out for his “Caprioles” - and in the challenging “Court Games”. He often participates in performances alongside his maternal brother, Dihego. Xajeco does not have an especially easy temperament but he is a “strength of nature”, extremely swift and dashing.
