Phoebus is a Standardbred gelding who swapped a life on the racetrack for a life as a knight’s charger in early 2020. After some initial suspicion about horses not running in the same direction as him, he’s now taken to armour and weapons and enjoys jousting, skill at arms and other forms of mounted combat as much as trail rides. His favourite exercise is the Spanish walk, but he has mastered the lateral movements and we are working towards other fun things.

In addition to walk, trot, and canter, Phoebus can also amble, which makes him an even better trail riding horse.
