What an amazing day! Over 25 volunteers came out to Healing with Horses Ranch today for our first Volunteer Training and were able to drive over the creek crossing!
The horses were wonderful. Just challenging enough with all of the green grass around, but very well behaved. They haven't really been led through the ramp to date so all of our new volunteers helped de-sensitize the horses to it! Playboy, my little speed demon was slow and relaxed.
Congratulations to Chuck Colvin, our volunteer of the Month for Dec 2011. If it was n't for him, we wouldn't have been able to do our training or at least not on the "East Campus", as John has dubbed it! Our volunteer appreciation Luncheon was wonderful thanks to Judy Moore, Lisa Foight, Catherine Bailey, Melissa Fox, Cindy Stearns and Kristin Witcher, Next's month's is already starting to be planned for the great American chile cook-off "I got to see people that I haven't seen in a while and meet new friends that I am looking forward to having a lot of fun with!
Our first class starts on Tuesday! I cannot wait!
