Apollo 11 year old, 17 hand, Thoroughbred, gelding. All around, dressage (First/Second Level), Hunter, Jumper, 3-Day, Trail!
Apollo is truly a gem of a horse. He is very well rounded...dressage, hunter/jumper, 3-Day, and trail! He is solid First Level dressage, confirming details of Second Level. He has all the lateral movements under his belt (leg yields, shoulder-in, half pass, renvers, travers).He knows counter canter, lengthenings in trot and canter, and is schooling simple changes.In addition to Apollos dressage skills, he also has experience in jumping. He has competed in jumping and eventing up to Training level.Although he has experience jumping, he is sometimes unreliable to the fences and therefore he is best suited for dressage.He has a "yes ma'am" way of going with his dressage. Apollo is also a great trail horse. He has a big heart, a great mind, is willing, kind and SAFE. He has no vices, and never bucks or rears. He is mellow under saddle, yet is easy to ask forward (he is not dull to the leg), and is not overly forward either (you dont have to half halt constantly). He has a nice pace in all three gaits, and has a VERY smooth trot, and a lovely walk with huge over-stride. Apollo would make a perfect mount for any junior or amateur rider looking for a well rounded horse that does a little of everything, with a great mind, and the experience necessary to be safe no matter where you ride him. A very special horse, with the maturity to have a great mind, and the youth to have a long career ahead of him! He has never been raced.Owner is selling to move up to Pre-lim on her other mount.
