Bambu was born on April 19, 2006. At the age of four, he left his mother Tentação in Alter because he was selected to be part of the Portuguese School of Equestrian Art, where he continued his training. Although his father, the stallion Bau, was a star for many years in the Solo and the Carousel, it is in the ridden Airs Above the Ground, especially in the Levades, that Bambu stands out the most. At the School he has a brother on his father's side, Xabregas. Despite demonstrating a wide range of abilities, there is a need to convince him as Bambu is somewhat lazy.
