Dark bay Percheron/Quarter Horse cross mare born 1999. She stands 16 hh

Donated by Linda Hunt. Sponsored by the Baran Family Foundation

Arrived at CARD in March 2015

Capri passed her trial with flying colours and firmly dug her way into classes and hearts. She is  a go-to horse for the instructors, and the program staff are confident that this dark haired beauty has a place amongst CARD’s “Legends”; those horses we still talk about fondly years after retirement and wish we could clone.

Capri initially made firm friends in Paddock 2, where she and Scooter had become an ‘item’. After spending more time with Scooter in Paddock 1B, sweet Capri re-joined the mares group in Paddock 1A, where she dotes on Splash and haughtily ignores the fact that Jet is in charge!

Her background as a lesson and show horse make her a great choice for riders working on horsemanship, while her solid frame and smooth gaits make her well suited to the taller riders in need of a partner to help them work on their balance. In class, Capri is starting to become a mentor to new volunteer leaders, so good at her own job, she can help them learn theirs.

Capri has wonderful manners for grooming and tacking and enjoys her TLC, however, she is a work-oriented girl and once the tack goes on, she dislikes hanging out in her stall: she wants to get down to business and she lets you know it by pacing and bumping her stall door!

Capri is talented and kind and we look forward to working with her for years to come.

    Hello there. I have a 4 and a half year old little boy on the autism spectrum and he also has epilepsy. I find that being around horses has such a calming effect on him and he really enjoy this interaction. Are there any programs available that would benefit him? I’m not sure he is ready to ride just yet.
