Highcliffe Apollo

The 16hh bay Hannoverian gelding came to us from his breeders in 2008. We started off with a lovely but rather nervous novice who blossomed under Diane’s  calm approach, patience and hours of training and in hand work  To this end we have now a very successful PSG schoolmaster. He has competed at Junior and young Rider Internationals here and abroad, as well as taking Diane, Samantha and Joanna to the National Championships. He has been a permanent fixture in top placings at Junior and Young Rider classes at Premier Leagues as well as U25’s Championships. In 2015, he qualified for the Nationals after 3 outings with Diane, who hadn’t competed in 14 years, where they finished second at Advanced Medium level.

Last year he was a part of the GB team at the Young Rider European Championships with Joanna and has now been taken on with her as part of the World Class Programme.
