March-April 2015 - Gary Witheford's Brujo
Brujo was found by Gary Witheford when he travelled to Andalusia in Spain in April, 2002. When Gary met him he was in a poor way, he was a big grey colt tied to a wall, with a serreta iron [a serrated band] on his nose and they said he was crazy and he was going to be shot for meat that evening.
When he finally arrived in Burbage the top of his tail was absolutely raw where he had sat down in the lorry and he didn’t understand what grass was. Now he is a truly amazing horse, now 19 years old and in fine form, he has some very talented progeny on the competition circuit and is also the star of Gary Witheford’s demonstrations around the country.
He is, like his owner, a workaholic and relishes the chance to give Gary a run for his money – the next event will be at Lingfield Racecourse on 11th April so if you want to see them in action why not enjoy a day at the races too? Visit the event page on Gary’s Facebook page for further info.
