The black horse at the fron tof this herd in the Lugovoi district is Maydonle, the grand-daughter of Absent, the most successful horse in Olympic history. Absent won a gold medal, a silver medal and two bronze medals in dressage at three separate olympic games in the 1960s. Maydonle stood apart from the herd and signaled the others with a variety of sounds. When it was time to cross the stream, she neighed and let them down the hill.
