Rainbow Volunteer of the Month for May is Carol Bachmann.
Carol came to our Volunteer Training in February of this year. She jumped right in helping in any way she could; Sidewalking, barn chores as well as helping with our Fun Show. Carol writes about her volunteer experience:
“I have been blessed in more ways than I can count. After retiring from 44 years of various forms of government service, I wanted to give back. I’ve loved horses all my life. I knew of therapeutic riding places through watching “Horses that Heal” on Ride TV. When we moved to Haymarket last year, I did some online research to see what places might be nearby. As luck would have it, Rainbow turned out to be 10 minutes from my house. I visited Rainbow one day, and loved what I saw. I signed up for training in February, and it took off from there. I love every minute of being at Rainbow, whether I’m doing barn chores, sidewalking, or just visiting the horses and staff. I get to feel those soft noses in my hand and see the smile on a child’s face. That’s worth everything.”
Thank you Carol for all your hard work and dedication!
