Offered For Sale: Bravado Cat

Everything is fun when you have the right partner

Bravado is an eight-year-old, 17h, big-bodied thoroughbred gelding.  He has been foxhunted for two seasons with North Hills Hunt including joint meets with other hunts and two trips to our nationally-famous Burwell fixture. About half the time he was ridden as the field master’s horse and the other half of the time in the field.  He’s used to being ridden out alone and is a bold, but sensible, jumper, and nonchalant about hounds.

He has evented successfully at USEA-recognized Beginner Novice level and schooled and done a schooling event at Novice level.  

He peaceably lives out with a small herd 24/7 with access to a shelter.  He has good herd social skills.

Bravado recently passed a basic pre-purchase examination at Iowa State University in anticipation of his sale.  Rider in most of the the images is 6’3″ tall; Bravado is a measured 17 hands.  No vices, good hooves, current on all veterinary and farrier needs, link to pedigree.  $15,000.  Located in Cambridge, Iowa, 1 minute off I-35.  Contact Camie Stockhausen or 515 231 9875.

Can take a joke.  Used to students having fun.
Though he isn’t asked to carry students often, he’s a good sport about it.
