    Update

    Donated to our program by Darley Stud, Olmsted is a beautiful 2012 TB gelding by Medaglia d'Oro. He was retired from racing due to a knee chip fracture, and in December of 2015 he was adopted by Heather E. of TX to be a hunter/jumper. Heather recently dropped us a note to let us know how "Obi" is doing these days: "I love having Obi, he's a barn favorite with his goofy personality. His training is coming along great, of course there are some greenbean moments here or there, but overall he's super quick to learn and game for anything. Now that he has learned to jump he loves it, and will go over any new obstacle without batting an eye - he's braver than I am! We have progressed to cantering through lines and single fences, and trotting small courses. I hope to be able to bring him to some schooling shows at the end of the summer and expose him to things off the farm. Obi is awesome!"
