Kaleena A. is one of our newest volunteers to join Winslow. She started off taking lessons at Winslow (as many volunteers have done before) and said, “I loved them so much I decided to start volunteering as well”.
Upon reopening our doors, volunteers were able to connect with the animals again, grooming and caring for them, and watching them play with each other. They helped staff around the barn, ensuring that the barn was sanitized each day and all of the equipment we used was sanitized after each lessons. Staff hosted a continuing education clinic about learning how to communicate with horses in order to encourage our volunteers to gain more knowledge about themselves and their work with the animals at Winslow. This clinic provided insight into how we perceive ourselves, how others perceive us, and how our equine partners respond to our behaviors.
The volunteers who participated in this clinic were so excited to have the opportunity to work with the horses in a free and relaxed environment where they were given the chance to be themselves and be at peace.
