RIP Brilloso passed away fall 2012 and rests overlooking his pond.  I was
so blessed to have this once in a lifetime horse in my life!  
Brilloso is a 16 hand Pure Spanish Portuguese Andalusian Stallion.  
Caprichoso S (national halter champion) x Lanca VI.  His grand dam was
a famous bullfighting mare in Spain!  Brilloso is USDF 2002 Grand Prix
Amateur Horse of the Year and four times IALHA National Champion at
FEI.  He made his international debut in 2006 at the Palm Beach Derby!  
Exhibitions include Equus America, Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo,
Sam Houston Racepark, Quadrilles at Houston Polo Club and GSWEC.  
He's been in numerous Bob Langrish calendars and is on the front of
Farnam's Platform hoof formula!  His offspring can be seen on the

Rumbero is a 16.2 hand, APSL approved, homozygous black Lusitano stallion, bred in Portugal by
Pablo Caetano.  Some of his siblings can be seen at the Portuguese School of Equestrian Art.  His sire,
Altivo, was trained for bullfighting and had a good career until he broke a leg and was retired to stud
service.  Altivo's
APSL revision score was 81 and his dam, Lancha, scored 75.  He will be following his
stablemate, Brilloso's path to Grand Prix!  Michael Poulin says that he will "make a super Grand Prix
horse"! His offspring can be seen on the
photos page.  Life has gotten in the way of our training/show
career but now starting to dip my toes back in the show world.  Stud fee is $2000, LFG, AI only.
