Canadian dressage rider David Marcus has announced that he is retiring his Olympic and World Equestrian Games horse Chrevi's Capital.
Marcus began riding the 16-year-old Danish Warmblood gelding in 2010 and the pair were soon competing on the world stage, heading to the London Olympics and Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games.
They were ranked in the FEI Top 50 in the world, represented Canada on multiple Nations Cup teams and won many CDIs at Grand Prix, include Dressage at Devon and at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival.
Speaking about his six-year partnership with Chrevi’s Capital, David said: “Capi is the most kind, people oriented and happy horse I've had the pleasure to work with.
“He has taken me on two European tours as well as to Aachen, an Olympic Games, and a World Equestrian Games, and for that I am forever thankful.”
Chrevi’s Capital is owned by Deborah Kinzinger Miculinic who is currently building a farm in Ontario, Canada where it is thought Chrevi’s Capital will retire to.
Deborah said: "David and Chrevi's Capital became one of the top teams to compete in Canada, and David is a remarkable rider.
“Certainly, I shall remember our time together with fond memories."
