Homoeopathy for Mares
Martha Olivo and United Horsemanship - Helping
Horsemen Become Better Horsemen
"Horses and I just 'find' each other
we always have.
They have been my best teachers, and at many important levels, we
keep each other whole."
Martha Olivo has been trimming horses since she was 14 years old.
Her family, all 12 of them, lived in North Carolina then, and every

pasture. They made a deal. Martha would trim Topsy's feet, and Topsy
would eventually let her ride. It was the beginning of a romance
a commitment to horses that became Martha's life's work.
