Gaits & Movement
Well gaited and smooth in corto. Potential for fino. Nice canter as well.
Very well put together, tall and strong gelding. Was going to be a herd sire and only gelded due to a retained testicle. Really beautiful horse. For more current pictures, please see his Narrawin Stud Facebook album
Capricho is great to handle. Showing a lot of brio, he is easy to ride, brave and will give me everything and some more. He has been mostly used for trail riding and has proven himself alone and on longer rides in larger groups, where he chews up the grownd like nobody’s business and is so comfortable to ride. He is currently learning about lateral work and being introduced to trail obstacles and weapons handling, with a view to becoming a skill at arms and horse archery mount. He is showing a lot of potential in that area. Out on rides, he is ever improving the quality of his gaits, with a smooth Paso Fino gait, and a lovely balanced canter.
Capricho is from predominantly Puerto Rican lines. He is a great-grand-son of Bochica on his dam’s side, and on the sire’s side, had Alicante in pedigree.
