Capricho is ready to leave us.

Capricho’s mother, Fit Lady, was 21-years-old when she came to Tranquility Farm. She was a gracious grey with a beautiful eye and a neck like a swan. Her owner was an elderly man who was forced to suddenly disperse his horses, and like so many from small breeders, she would have been completely overlooked in a commercial sale. There were very few options for an aged mare like Fit Lady.

Fit Lady was in foal to a gigantic stallion named Madraar,a son of Mr. Prospector who went to stud in the US after racing in Dubai. Naturally my fantasy was that Fit Lady would produce a gorgeous grey filly that would be a larger replica of her. (Note to self: horse breeding is not an exact science.) On a freezing night in April 2007, Fit Lady delivered an incredibly tall bay colt who immediately got up and hopped about like a giant jackrabbit.

Watching Capricho grow into himself has been a real delight. I see his mother’s sweet nature paired with his sire’s scope and athleticism. As a late two year old we feel he is finally mature enough to begin basic training.
Tranquility Farm is now offering Capricho to serious riders that can continue to nurture him and let him develop into the outstanding eventer or hunter that he was born to be. Good things take time.
