A Special Bond

I had the opportunity today to meet and photograph a very special Thoroughbred named Captain.  Captain belongs to Beth Gagliardi, owner of Excelsior Equestrian Center in Hobart, IN.  I had been invited to EEC to do a photo shoot for the boarders.  The last horse to go was Captain.

Captain is a Thoroughbred, and not just any old TB, but a Secretariat grandson.  In his prime, he was also a Grand Prix dressage horse.  Now, at the ripe old age of 26, he is retired and lives the life of a king in the lap of luxury.  It is clear that Beth simply adores him and it was easy to see their bond.  I hope you enjoy a few of the photos I snapped of Captain and Beth.  I love knowing that given the chance, this is the kind of life a retired Thoroughbred can lead.
