TO LEARN MORE ABOUT BRAVO CZAR
AND OUR OTHER 
XQWISIT SPORTHORSES

Bravo is a
1/2 Arabian, 1/2 Thoroughbred gelding
purchased in 2001
as an eventing prospect
for our son, Dustin.
 
He possesses incredible talent as an eventing or dressage prospect.
 
Unfortunately, once Dustin became a teenager
his love of  fast cars, football and girls
all proved more important
than schooling and showing his horse.

Bravo sees too much down time for his abilities,
consequently he receives professional training yearly.

Our first spring and summer with Bravo was spent on his ground work,
although both he and Dustin
preferred jumping and trail rides.

Unfortunately, due to a serious accident and subsequent Doctor's orders,
Dustin was unable to ride or show Bravo in 2004 .
Consequently, Bravo spent several months in professional training,
packing around beginners
and eventually seeing his first A circuit show.

Dustin began working with Bravo again in 2005, 
schooling on eventing courses
and relaxing with miles upon miles of trail riding.

With Dustin attending college in 2006
and
 remaining there for summer school in 2007,
Bravo spent 8 months of '07  with a professional trainer.

There, he was a favorite and proved to enjoy performing tricks.

This lead to a screen test as a "drunken" horse for a
Larry the Cable Guy movie.

Bravo was also used as an extra for
the Gotham City mounted police in the Batman 3 movie,
 where they were paraded through
downtown Chicago during a torrential thunderstorm.

Fortunately all this stardom hasn't gone to his head!

Due to lack of time to show Bravo at his full potential
Bravo is offered for sale.
