Mahmoud Olwan’s Living the Olympics Dream

Mahmoud Olwan’s Living the Olympics Dream

One of its notable competitions, the Olympic Show Jumping, a meticulous art of horsemanship involving the balance between discipline and riding techniques, requires a competitive and effective training facility that every successful equestrian could attest.

Six years ago, a Palestinian Olympic horse rider, Mahmoud Olwan, traveled to the US with a mission of attaining valuable training for the upcoming Olympic games. He believes that with a strong horseback riding foundation, he can fulfill his dreams of competing at the Olympics. In Palestine, Mahmoud is known to be the best horse-jumping athlete. With such recognition, Mahmoud is determined to go beyond expectations by competing in the Olympic games. He wants to be recognized internationally for his skills.

Currently, in Oregon, USA, Mahmoud is training at Echo Glen Equestrian Center under the direction of  Eric Noel, professional horseman, rider, and judge. As Mahmoud is known to be the best at what he does, he still recognizes the need for improvement in discipline and riding techniques.

The chase training by Eric Noel is making Mahmoud work on enhancing his communication skills with the horse. The connection between Mahmoud and the horse is very important; they are partners during the game, and with full coordination between them that Mahmoud can successfully fulfill his Olympics dream.

Mahmoud appreciates Echo Glen because of its reputable coaches and the kind of developed, inclusive facility that any equestrian might ask for. For him, the center is not only a place to train, but also hosts a community of mutual support helping each rider achieve their dreams and goals. Mahmoud is motivated to win at the Olympic games and bring recognition to Palestine and the community at Echo Glen Equestrian Center.

Being a successful equestrian in the Olympics is not the only vision of Mahmoud Olwan. His love for the art of horsemanship makes him believe that sharing his skills and expertise with aspiring equestrians would expand the discovery and appreciation of this sport. With Mahmoud reaching his dream of competing  in the olympics he also dreams to open up sport clincs to help other palestinian horse riders like himslef reach their goal. Such a clinic would promote the values of discipline and perseverance Mahmoud himself acquired on the journey to fulfill  the Olympic dream. Despite the challenges in his home country, building a community in Palestine is something that Mahmoud envisions. He wants to give hope for the Palestinian youth and provide them an avenue for change through a community that he is determined to build in the future.

Mahmoud is encouraging aspiring equestrians to join him on his journey to the upcoming Olympics game. His motto in life is “you can achieve the highest greatness by not letting dreams just be dreams.” Be inspired and follow him on Instagram.
