What is an Early Californio Bridlehorse?
Bruce's Answer: it's a ranch horse that is trained using the Californio (jaquima to freno) method of balance and timing to create a horse that is totally fluid in any movement with minimal input from the rider.
The Californio bridle horse is an all around good riding horse, cow horse and rope horse. He should be able to do these jobs while staying in perfect balance in any type of ground or terrain.
It's a horse that is functional beauty personified.
