|Indiano XVIII (Cazador x Bondadosa II)
1985 PRE Stallion, 16 h, Grey
Indiano XVIII is known as the "Lion of Spain," and he was undefeated there
in conformation and movement and was twice National Champion. He was
also National Champion of Mexico. His pedigree is pure Romero Benitez, a
line known for producing dressage horses of international quality.
Renowned for the incredible lift and elasticity of his movement, he is the sire
of my stallion Odilon JIM and the grandsire of three of my mares. He was
owned by the Indiano Syndicate in the United States until his death in 2012.

|1980 PRE Stallion, 15.2 h, Grey (Deceased)
Banbury Brio was owned by Jana Baumaster-Gaber's Unicorn Valley Farm
(UVF) and was bred by Banbury Cross Farms from mainly Terry lines. He is
related to some of the best known horses of Spain. His athleticism was proven
in his long, successful performance career. Brio was a consistent winner of
Performance High Points at Andalusian and Open shows. He was a winner in
dressage through second level, but his outstanding jumping ability took him
from dressage to combined training and show jumping where he competed
through Preliminary level.
As the sire of one of my mares and the grandsire of three others, Brio figures
very prominently in my breeding program, and I am very pleased with how
his bloodlines have crossed with the other dominant line of my farm--Indiano
