Athena is the most photographed and reproduced horse on our carousel. She is a beauty with her outstretched peek-a-boo mane and glorious flowers on the back of her cantle.
She is the queen of our carousel but we couldn't call her queenie. She needed a much more regal, majestic name. The Europeans (who brought the carousels to America) loved mytholoty, so it was fitting for her to be named for the goddess of beauty . . . Athena!
