|Breyer Horse Description
No father-daughter combo has set the Saddlebred
world ablaze like Chubasco and Caravelle,
colorful homebreds from Scripps Miramar Ranch in
San Diego, California.
An outstanding show horse and a blueblood to
boot, the flashy paint Chubasco (Spanish for
"desert storm") was the result of a breeding
program designed to emphasize color and quality.
Though sold as a weanling, he was bought back
after the sudden death of his dam Tropical Gale.
In his first competitive outing, Chubasco took
the California Futurity Open Show's
three-year-old three gaited class under
co-breeder Michele Macfarlane. From there, it
was on to a bevy of blues at Del Mar and Santa
Barbara, not to mention the United Professional
Horsemen's Association Chapter 1 Classic
Championship. Only shown once at age four, he
was dubbed World Champion Amateur Parade Horse.
A brilliant career at stud followed, with
Chubasco leading all stallions in futurity and
performance winners year after year. By the time
of his passing in 1998, this once-in-a-lifetime
animal had sired more American Saddlebred Horse
Association Champions of Record than any other
stallion. No wonder he was considered a champion
The striking Caravelle, who was bred, owned and
shown by Michele Macfarlane, did her daddy
proud. A five-gaited marvel whose floating
action recalled that of champion Naranda, her
record in the pleasure division was
unparalleled. During her 10-year career, she
brought home 171 blues - 139 of them in Five
Gaited Pleasure or Country Pleasure Driving, and
nine World's Championships. So magnificent was
her presence that she was the talk of many a
A standout producer as well, Caravelle counts a
Fine Harness Three-Year-Old Mare World's
Champion and a Five Gaited Two-Year-Old World's
Champion among her progeny.
Clearly, like father, like daughter!
