“Revised” by the Cria Caballar and Imported from Spain
Incredible Temperament, Breathtaking Movement and Spectacular Work Ethic

Bandolero has classic Baroque style beauty, with short back, long silky mane and tail, and large strong bones and feet.
His magnificent movement includes not only the typical high stepping knee action, but also the expressive trot extension coveted in Dressage.
Bandolero’s signature trademark is his incredible extended trot, uncharacteristic of the Andalusian breed. 

      

Bandolero is of Leviton bloodlines, known for producing spectacular movement, calm and gentle temperament, and an incredible work ethic.
The famous Spanish Dressage Olympic Star, Evento, is also of Leviton bloodlines.

Bandolero also shares lineage with the WEG 2010 show stealer, Fuego XII, through Elegido III and Agente (sire of Leviton).
