THE ATHLETES

Jagger was the first acquisition of the Ad Astra Collective, acquired in June 2018 in Holland. Jagger has surpassed Rebecca's and David's expectations already during his first year in training. Jagger serves as "Living Proof" for the

viability of the Collective's concept. The team applies its extensive equine experience combing it with innovative business strategies to develop "Olympic Champions."

Rebecca matched me with an 8-year old  three years ago and has developed the horse and myself

into an Olympic competitor. Nobody could have done this, but you. Thank you Rebecca.
