Details of any individual behavioural traits which may influence the type of person best suited to take on the horse

Not keen on change. He's **NEVER** nasty, but worried/anxious(separation anxiety). cannot be left alone (especially stabled) Needs routine. Doesn't travel well rear facing (contact to discuss), should be ok in 'traditional' box. Has been regularly sedated for farrier, but now barefoot so hopefully sedation no longer needed. Red needs someone patient and kind. He's a lovely boy to handle, clean in stable, good with other horses. He just worries- 99% sure he'd be better in a decent routine that I sadly can't
