Apache*Pb* sired by Merkur*E* by Schwalbenflug out of Marchenblute is of the IMPULS stallion line. Dam, Alouette by Tannenberg*E* out of the immortal ABIZA*Pb* (ABDULLAH*Pg*E*)

Owning Apache*Pb* has been a dream come true for Joint Venture Farm and the Gardners. Apache’s ancestral Trakehner lineage exemplifies Trakehner elite breeding. He was sired by Merkur *E*(sire of numerous approved stallions, Apache*Pb* being one of the most exceptional) by Schwalbenflug out of Marchenbluteby Maigraf xx. Apache’s dam was Alouette *E* by Tannenberg *E* out of the immortal Abiza *E* who produced the famous Trakehner stallion Abdullah *Pg*E*.

Apache*Pb* was born March 1, 1986 at Galten Farms in Unionville(now Markham), Ontario. Galten Farms is owned by the renowned Trakehner breeder Gerhard Schindedanz and his family. While in Canada, Apache*Pb* was successfully campaigned by Jacqueline Brooks and Ashley Nichol. Apache’s career included combined training and dressage. He competed and excelled in dressage through Grand Prix. At Fourth Level, Apache*Pb* won in Saratoga, Devon and the Washington International Dressage Classic. Apache*Pb* continued to successfully compete at Prix St George, Intermediaire I and II, and Grand Prix, winning the Dressage at Palgrave II and Blainville, CDI. Apache*Pb* was an alternate for the Pan American and Olympic Games. He also was Dressage Horse-Of-The-Year in Quebec in 2000. Apache*Pb* has been designated as a Bronze and Silver Premium Stallion by the Canadian Sport Horse Association. He has also achieved his Bronze designation with the American Trakehner Association.

Apache*Pb* is now 21 years old and is as magnificent a Trakehner stallion as he was a young colt. He commands attention through his proud and exceptional personality. His grey coat is now glistening white which enhances his enormous black, kind eyes.

Showing off to the many visitors who come to see this handsome Trakehner stallion, he provides a unique experience for all . Visitors are mesmerized by his presence. From his pasture, surrounded by another Trakehner stallion, and mares, he looks up from grazing, walks calmly towards his visitors who are awaiting his arrival at the fence. He allows each visitor to pet him. As he moves away he turns around to look at his visitors, trots, canters and gallops off to show the small crowd his magnificent, mesmerizing gaits.

Every day Apache*Pb*, alias Houdini, has the ability to remove his halter and fly mask. Every morning both articles of horse attire are most certainly secured upon his entrance into the pasture. No one at Joint Venture has ever witnessed the actual removal, but every evening we have the opportunity to perform search and find. Like clock work, Apache*Pb* will contentedly curl up and take a late morning nap in visual distance from the mares.

Owning Apache*Pb* is a wonderfully unmatched experience. We at Joint Venture Farm are extremely thankful to have had the chance of a lifetime owning this incredible Trakehner stallion called APACHE*Pb*!
