Foal born at Osuna Ranch in Rancho Santa Fe first since 2006


In May, the Osuna Ranch welcomed its first foal born on the ranch since the Rancho Santa Fe Association took ownership in 2006.

The filly, appropriately named Osuna, was supposed to be birthed at another facility as is customary, but she arrived early after the full moon on May 3.

Osuna’s owners are Covenant residents Gabriela and Carlos Fernandez, who have been boarding at the ranch for a year.

Now two months old with a sweet and cuddly disposition, Osuna is a chestnut filly with impressive bloodlines. Her sire is Cabalito, a Hanoverian stallion that is one of the leading sires of hunters in the country. Her dam is Rio Diva, also a leading Hanoverian hunter.

Osuna is being raised on the ranch with her playful brother, Thor.
