Description

Apollo is a 14yo (2007) Mustang gelding who came to the Rescue back in 2010 from another rescue when Laurie was privately taking rescue horses in at her ranch. Apollo was a 3 year old when he came here, and world renowned horseman, Brent Graef, started Apollo’s training. We quickly found out how smart and willing, yet very calm he was. In the fall of 2010, Erika started volunteering at the ranch, helping Laurie’s group and keep records of the rescue horses. She started watching Brent train Apollo and the other horses, learning about each horse as she watched. Some time had gone by, and Erika started helping Brent ride the horses. It was then that she fell in love with Apollo. Erika adopted Apollo in April of 2012 and has owned him ever since. In the past year, things have changed drastically in Apollo and Erika’s life; she started a family and a new career path, and he was diagnosed with Cushing’s Disease requiring him to be on medication and have special farrier work done. Trying to jungle a baby being a single mom, and a new job, Erika has made the tough decision to find Apollo a new forever family who will continue to love, care, and cherish him just as she has the past 9 years. Apollo is a great LIGHT RIDING kid or trail horse, and the best companion around for another horse, donkey, or mini horse (he’s also great around dogs and cats)!
