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

Apache*Pb* won in Saratoga, Devon and the Washington International
Dressage Classic. Apache*Pb* continued to successfully compete

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
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*!
