Olympia came to Longmeadow as part of a rescue with a large number of horses. She was malnourished and nursing a young foal. Her foal has since been weaned and Olympia has recovered from her neglect. She is a healthy weight but we are working on improving her physical conditioning. We do not think Olympia has any previous training for riding and she has been started in our training program.
Update February 2017: Olympia is a quick learner. She is also patient and calm. She has been ridden at the walk, trot and canter in the indoor arena and outside on the trails. Olympia is learning to side pass and yield her hind quarters under saddle. She is very soft and flexes well. She has a great stop. She backs and responds to voice cues. She is brave and works through the obstacles with confidence. She does well being ridden alone or with other horses. She is still learning and `green` in her training but we think she will be great for an intermediate rider or a less experienced rider in a lesson program. With more riding time we think she will make a great kid''s horse and she is almost there!
