Meet Apollo… He’s not Greek

Here's Chloe's new horse, Apollo, a Dutch Warmblood.  He's a 7 year-old gelding and was imported from the Netherlands in June.  We picked him up this past Thursday from the seller's farm in Loxahatchee.  He's a bred and trained dressage horse.  Chloe is ecstatic, obviously.

Chloe had gone about as far as she could with her quarter horse, Shela.  A quarter horse is perhaps not the best choice for dressage, but obviously Shela was a starter horse for Chloe, and we knew that eventually she would need to move up to a warmblood.  This is a big step up for her, but she worked hard, was dedicated, and certainly earned her way up to this horse.

At 16.2 hands, Apollo towers over Chloe.
