Apollo was bought by Kate’s father, Philip Rocher, through Paul Webber, our local National Hunt racing trainer. Apollo started his career on the racetrack but it was decided he didn’t have his heart in getting over the line first, so last autumn he moved to DE HQ to see if he is more passionate about eventing!
So far he has way exceeded our expectations and is taking to all aspects of training exceptionally well. Hayley has been managing this talented horse’s retraining and it seems he has a bright future ahead. He has started his eventing career in fine style, placing at his first event, and looks to have a bright future ahead.
