Apollo arrived on the yard in 2009 as a rather green 7 year old. The 16hh bay Hannoverian gelding came to us from his breeders and was rather nervous to start. We began with him very gently and his confidence grew daily. Lots of lunging and in-hand work and sympathetic but consistent schooling has turned this little horse around.
He is being brought on hoping he will be a suitable horse for Joanna, Samantha’s younger sister, to take on. Joanna is riding him under Diane’s guidance and they recently did their first unaffiliated competition with him at Addington. Appearing to start as they mean to go on, they came away winning both classes!
