Hi! My name is Olivia Gildea. I have been riding for 18 years and studying Parelli for the last 10 years. I grew up as a member in the United States Pony Club riding classical dressage and eventing. My heart has always been in the dressage and natural horsemanship. I am a CoolStance distributor in Rhode Island as well as a natural horsemanship and dressage instructor. My gelding Gambler is an 11 year old Hanoverian Cross. Gambler and I became partners 3 years ago. He came to me as a very nervous introverted horse. His emotional fitness was pretty worn and contact was a scary word for him. Gambler and I have overcome quite a bit of baggage in the last couple of years. We have been riding with Sarah Berg on a weekly basis and making more strides then I ever expected possible. This summer we are going to work towards my bronze medal competing 1st and 2nd level. I am very excited to have the opportunity to participate in Linda's Masterclass!
