"Apollo" is a 16.3 hh, 4 year old bay gelding off the track, but UNRACED. He is an attractive light bay, with a striking blaze and good bone structure. He has been in professional retraining for 6 months and is excelling quickly. He is very laid back with a willing attitude. He goes out on trail rides alone and with company, calmly and quietly. Apollo is great in the ring as well, carrying himself in a round reaching frame with steady rhythm and bending, getting his leads and has started small courses in the arena, and went cross-country schooling over beginner Novices fences. He is progressing with leaps and bounds. This winter we were working on ground poles and gymnastics. He is very smart and athletic, but incredibly manageable and easy going!! Just turning 4 years old, the future holds a lot for this horse!! He is ready to do anything for you!
Up to date on coggins, vaccinations and dental work.
I have created some videos of his first time schooling cross-country, and a quick session with out tack in the paddock to get an idea of his movement. Apollo--walk/trot/canter Outside, no Tack Apollo--cross Country 4 Apollo--cross-country 3 Apollo--cross Country 2 Apollo-ocross Country 1
