Little Pony, Big Heart

It's a tale as old as time, a young girl falls in love with horses and dreams of riding and ribbons. Unfortunately, not every story unfolds like a Disney movie and life's challenges sometimes put our dreams on hold.  Luckily for Ari, a spunky pony named Odie came into her life at the right time.

The Sky's The Limit for Vaulter Charlotte Axani

Charlotte Axani's rise to the top of the Vaulting world can only be described as meteoric.
