"We could not be more delighted at the result and have to pinch ourselves. What’s more, it has been a pain-free journey - in fact it has been a complete pleasure. A large part of that success is down to Jon.

In short, for us, the partnership between Jon and Darrel was ideal. Over the 2 years we worked together we got to know the Apex team well, and Jon in particular. I would like to take this opportunity to thank him personally for his professionalism and expertise, and hope that we will stay friends in the years to come down at our barn.”
