The Caballo Blanco Story


Posted by Flint F of Flintland under Ultrarunning on 26 March 2013 at 12:00 AM

This is a short story about the life and vision of Micah True, better known as Caballo Blanco, as rendered by New York artist Sam Carbaugh.

The Story of Caballo Blanco

More on the artist: Like many people in the world, Sam was touched by Caballo Blanco's passion and devotion to the Tarahumara (or Raramuri) people of the Copper Canyons of Mexico. He invested his time and talent into creating a small biography that stays true to both who Micah was as person and as the creator of the legendary Copper Canyons Ultra Marathon (now known as Ultra Marathon Caballo Blanco). This is as much a story about Micah True as it is the one of his legacy as Caballo Blanco, Runner of the Sierra Madre.
