Turvey, a clinician who teaches horses such tricks as the bow, lay-down and sit-up, has performed at such venues as the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas and the Disney in Paris. His company, Equine Extremist, owns more than 20 horses of different breeds, and two of his horses -- Pokerjoe and Joker -- have been immortalized as Breyer® Horse models.
