Talking Apollo's weight gain update!

Apollo has been blossoming! Has been ridden and doing great! Only about 10 rides under his belt but good natured enough for kids to ride him! We love him!

Wow, nice change!

He's got a bit of a... something going on in that lumbar/sacral area that I'd want to get checked out & I would be inclined to avoid putting heavy riders on him, for now at least.

Its a hunters bump. Common in harness racers. My other STB had the same thing

Yes, I know. I'd still get him checked out & filled out before putting a heavy rider on him.
