Real Bonanza, an APHA Champion, was a great show horse. Real Bonanza, known as 'Real", was shown mostly in his home state of Iowa . Real attained points in several events; Halter, Western Pleasure, Hunter Under Saddle, Roping, Trail, and Games. He made an appearance at the 1995 World Show- being a star in the Bridleless Western Pleasure class.
Real Bonanza is listed as an APHA Leading Sire. He has been listed as an Equistat Top 10 Money Earning Leading Performance Sire all breeds, an Honor Roll Halter Stallion, and an Honor Roll Western Pleasure horse.
Real's success as a sire, however, has always outshone his own excellence as an individual, which is as it should be. This is not to say he is not a great individual. Here is where the phrase "Form to Function" needs to be mentioned. Real Bonanza has the profile and conformation that books are written about.
Real Bonanza's offspring rose to the forefront, topping several Honor Roll listings and winning Futurities and Circuit Championship titles. Also, Real's get has won all of the Gelding Plus money offered by APHA its first year, ($20,000.00) and a good share of the purse each year thereafter. "TEAM REAL" wins world Championship titles in Hunter Under Saddle, Western Pleasure, Walk- Trot, and Driving year after year. Isn't it time you joined our Team?
Success includes the help of a great pedigree full of legends. Real Bonanza had a great sire. Mr. Fancy Bonanza. "Fancy" was a leading sire as well as a great individual. The dam line of Real Bonanza is as equally attractive with a grandsire like Real Luck, the winner of 3 consecutive AQHA Congress Halter Championship titles. Foundation bloodlines that have that proven look of the modern day show horse! If one looks at the type of mares that have been bred to Real, you might raise a brow; no World Champions and very few mares with even a point. Real Bonanza is the APHA's leading HUS sire. A SIRE that produces Pleasure horses that are capable of competing at every level and consistently WIN!
