Might Tango was a top eventing horse trained and ridden by American Bruce Davidson.

  • Lived: 1971-1995
  • Breeding: by Mighty Mine, out of Betango
  • Rider: Bruce Davidson

Might Tango was found by Robert Tindle as a mount for Bruce Davidson. The gelding had raced as a two-year-old in California before he began his eventing career. As a relatively inexperienced eventing horse, Might Tango took Davidson to a win at the 1978 World Championships in Lexington, earning the individual gold medal and team bronze at the young age of seven.[1]

Might Tango lived to the age of twenty-four, and is now buried at Davidson's Chesterland Farm in Unionville, PA.
