Giacomo Capacci Arabians (GCA) is situated on 70 acres of beautiful rolling hills in Tuscany, Italy. The Arabian horse has always been a part of Giacomo’s life for as long as he can remember. The passion he and his team have for this breed is evident in all that they do each and every day whether they are caring for the stallions, preparing horses for the show ring or tending to the needs of the broodmares and foals that call GCA home.
Breeding has played a significant role since opening their doors in 2005. The goal of GCA is to assist their clients in fulfilling their dreams as Arabian horse breeders. They enjoy helping them complete their vision with expert guidance for the appropriate stallion to match with each specific mare. Once the client’s vision is complete the team at GCA feels it’s their duty to help them from conception to birth and beyond. Giacomo said, “Assisting our clients in the creation of the next generation comes with a great deal of pride, responsibility and excitement.”
The accomplishments of GCA are evidenced by the achievements made by their clients. They take pride when their stallion owners obtain wonderful results or their mare owners are successful with the colts and fillies they helped to produce. It brings joy to them to see the offspring win in the show ring and then mature into breeding animals themselves.
Giacomo Capacci Arabians has worked with several SBS Affiliate Laboratories, including Select Breeders Southwest in Texas and SBS World Headquarters in Maryland, to assist their clients in achieving their dreams of breeding to some of the best Arabian horses in the world. Giacomo said,
“For us, SBS is the obvious choice! Their professionalism and attention to detail makes us confident in the role they play here with our stallions. We are fortunate to have them assist us with our frozen semen offered throughout the world. Without SBS we would not be able to have the global impact that we do.”
