Halla, a German-bred mare from Standardbred bloodlines, holds the World Record for the most Gold Medals (five) by a single horse!  While training to be a steeplechaser, her talent caught the attention of the Olympic Team trainer, and she began her rise to stardom.  Too difficult to handle on cross-country courses, she became unbeatable as a stadium jumper.  She and her rider went on to win 125 competitions together before she was retired to become a broodmare.  Halla lived a good long life, enjoying the sunshine into her 34th year, and proving beyond a doubt that trotting-horses can compete in more than just trotting races!
