About Athena

Athena was rescued from a "kill pen" by her previous owner. She had a foal not long after being rescued. After her foal was weaned, her former owner sent her to training. She placed her with Bluebonnet when she was moving.

Athena will be competing under saddle in the Non-Pro Under Saddle division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with Pam Trettenero. She will be available for adoption at the Challenge during the Bluebonnet Horse Expo on October 17, 2020 in Taylor, Texas.

Evaluation and Training

Athena's former owner sent her to a trainer before she placed her with Bluebonnet. Athena's trainer worked with her on the ground, taught her to navigate trail obstacles in hand, and started her under saddle. She was very green when she came to us, so she went to a non pro to be ridden and prepared for the fall 2020 Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge.
