January 16th we welcomed Jolies "half sister" (same sire, so not really half) to our farm for some retraining. She is a 2001 OTTB Stakes Placed mare, standing at 16.2. She is a little older than I like to take on, but I thought I would give her a try, as she was a relative to my Jojo and has an athletic attitude that I'm sure will take her far. 

We have put some time on her and she is proving to be a quick study and a load of fun to ride. She definitely has a future in eventing with her great movement, athletic ability and sturdy build. 

She was tried by a junior rider today that did a phenomenal job. Flashy and agreeable, a little bit spunky but also safe it went really well...It's a big "maybe" for her, but I am excited for the ground to thaw so I can drag some fences out and get her going with her jumping. 

Here are some photos and videos!
