Young riders excelling on Capital Stud horses

Eighteen year old Jorja Rohrich is preparing to move competitively into the big league in 2022 on Capital stud bred horses.

Capital Hurley was bought at the 2018 Capital Stud Auction. She has produced him from there and on only their 3rd outing at this height, the pair won the 1.30m Championships at the Maple Ridge World Cup Qualifier. What an achievement in just three short years! Sire: Capital’s Hitoshi Dam: Capital Unah (Ulior / Land Earl) .

She has also acquired Ian van Schalkwyk’s previous open horse Capital Don Costello, who she is over the moon with, to mentor her in the big classes. They jumped clear on both days at the Reonet WC Qualifier 1m50 classes. This was her first time at 1m50 and they placed 4th! Sire : Capital’s Don Cumarco Dam: Capital Unique (Ulior/ Gratuity)

Another young rider on a dream trajectory with a Capital bred horse is Thomas van Rijckevorsel riding Capital My Lady.

Henning breeds some of his horses in Belgium to be able to get the top breeding lines he wants. This is one of them. Sire: Untouchable KWPN (Hors la loi/ Heartbreaker/ Carthago) Dam: Zalencia (Cassini II/ Coriander/ Lord). Some of their most recent wins are 1st at the Maple Ridge Biogen WC Qualifier 1.35 Championship; 1st at the UAG Micro Speed Derby; 1st at 1m35 UAG A2 Competition at Der-by; 1st at Rotoflo Youth Extravaganza Maple Ridge Spring Championship

The November Capital Hybrid Auction is a first

The concept of a hybrid auction was genius, especially with Capital Stud’s colossal indoor an easy drive from Gauteng riding communities. Most riders like to see a horse in the flesh and even if you had not sat on any of them earlier, you were able assess the essence of the horse in the arena.

Henning did the commentary on each horse, while Aiden Lithgow enhanced his commenter skills with those of a now seasoned auctioneer. The Saturday was temperate and the setting of the blue hued Maglies mountain range behind and manicured event area, made it a special outing.
