(Verb) To have an intense, exclusive, one-sided conversation with another person in a social setting. Derived as a makeshift compound word, inspired by the pivotal scene in the movie “Braveheart” where William Wallace (played by Mel Gibson) gives a passionate, heartfelt speech atop a horse while his charges listen attentively. Bravehorsing is generally initiated by an intoxicated partygoer forcing banter on an often involuntary and unwitting victim. Although the person bravehorsing always believes the discussion is of paramount importance, the other party generally disagrees and is usually made quite uncomfortable. Simultaneous bravehorsing is possible, and also quite common between two especially drunk people.
