El Capitano HW is by the sensational stallion Earl. Earl's sire, Escudo I, stands for jumping ability and beautiful, elastic gaits, in addition to stunning black color. Lanthan on the dam's side is insurance for beautiful conformation and jumping and dressage ability, and adds another gene for black, giving rise to the possibility that Earl is homozygous for the black gene. Earl received a 9 for his walk, an 8 for his trot, 8.5 for his canter and a 9 for his willingness to work. Earl convinced at the performance test by all criteria, especially with his rideability and his willingness to work.

He impressed because of his marvelous topline, his well-shaped, correct and harmonious riding horse conformation and his perfect character.

Earl comes from bloodlines top and bottom that are known to produce dressage ability and jumping talent. His test results confirm this dual purpose tendency.

Stallion Performance Test 2002, Adelheidsdorf

Overall score 143.93 / 1st

Dressage score 139.93 / 2nd

Jumping score 127.55 / 3rd
