In recent years, Yankee was a mainstay of Jane Marinello's lesson program at Southdown Farm, where he taught entire families-parents and children alike-to ride.
Traveler is our newest addition to the program, and he
has been integral to us since he
arrived at the farm in early September 2004.He
is a tall, flea-bitten gray Appendix Quarter Horse with a particular affinity for rolling in mud, to the great chagrin of our horse care staff.He
was donated to Lift Me Up
by Allyson Louthan, who enjoyed years of foxhunting with him in the Charlottesville area.His
foxhunting experience is a tremendous asset to us, rendering him calm and unflappable in the face of unfamiliar and unpredictable sounds, sights, and activities in the therapeutic riding arena.Traveler thrives on the attention he
receives from program riders and staff.
