Olympic Training has Begun by SageSinRiddle Olympic Training has Begun by SageSinRiddle
It was a quiet day at Ocean View Equestrian Center. It was a Sunday... the one day off for staff and horses. Peace and quiet was expected.

The sound of a lone horse working in one of the large arenas broke through the stillness of the day. A pause. Heavy breathing. Four hooves touched the ground, cantered a few steps then slowed to a trot. A man's voice broke through the air, his words hard to make out. A quieter one answered and the equine picked up a canter once more, approaching a set of oxers.


Athan Ambar was in a strict training regiment, preparing for the upcoming Equestrian Olympic Games. He was being handled by Cadence Riddle as his official rider watched on in silence. A German coach stood in the center of the arena, barking commands and making comments.

The competitors would work together soon. Robert Moore was just observing the movements of his horse from a spectator's point of view before mounting him.

They had to work hard.

Athan Ambar trains for the 2010 HARPG Olympics for the Show Jumping competition.
