“Well, hello there! My name is Sadie! Yes, I know I’m the youngest in the herd, but that doesn’t mean I don’t know my stuff like the back of my hoof. I’m super patient and gentle, and make a perfect partner for hippotherapy.”

Sadie is the "Hippo Queen" and was trained when she came to UpReach. She's deliberate in everything she does and has lots of movement in her walk for hippotherapy.  In the field, Sadie is the "Alpha," making sure everyone knows just who is in charge! Her striking colors and cool eyes make her popular among students.
