In November 2015, Hillery Head of Birmingham, Alabama, received Capitan as an early Christmas present from her husband, Giles Perkins.
A note from Hillery - "When I first noticed Capitan Futuro (GB), his calm demeanor and physical beauty impressed me. At the time, he was recovering from a bowed tendon, but I could feel his desire to have a second chance career. We live in a disposable society, and when we are finished with something, it is easy to throw it away. This horse did not want to be thrown away. I believed he would work hard to succeed at his repurposed role. Fortunately, we were able to connect at a a time when he was ready to start a second career, and I had room in my life to help him. We are starting slow: transitions, standing still, working in a ring with others, tuning up ground manners. His desire to do the right thing is palpable. It is too early to tell where the path will lead us, but I am honored to walk it with Capitan Futuro (GB). Many thanks to Ali Goodrich, Team Valor, and the Changing Leads team for giving us both this opportunity."
