The Apollo was developed following the success of the Impala. Created with the same thought as the Impala but with a lower head, wider rail angles & a lower profile panel to accommodate the broader animal. The square cantle, semi open seat & defined, cupped knee block make it the perfect saddle to enjoy most aspects of riding, particularly jumping & a fast canter across the stubble!
