Capriccio (Charlie) is a 16.1 hand, 2009 Hanoverian gelding imported by Christiane Noelting in 2013. He is a talented 6-year-old with floaty gaits and a wonderful mind. He turns heads at shows and will get you noticed! He has had a brief career in eventing with his 15-year old rider where he competed through Training level. He won all but one dressage phase out of the 12 three-day events he has competed in. It was decided between rider, owner, and coach that he would be better suited to a dressage or hunter jumper career due to his incredible talent and great potential.
Charlie is currently schooling and showing 1st level dressage. He made his 1st level debut at the Shelly Siegel CDS Dressage Show on May 30, 2015 and won both classes on a 70.0% and a 71.0%. Charlie is simple to jump. In competition, he has coursed 3’3” with ease. He and his rider have been coursing 3’6” at home and he has plenty of scope for more.
Charlie is an easy keeper and an “in your pocket”, laid back horse and a pleasure to have around the barn. He has great hooves and clips, ties, bathes, trailers, etc. and is even treadmill trained. He loves trail rides and his rider is able to take him out alone without issue. He is happy to travel alone and a joy to show! Breed passport available with lineage.
