When Cindy asked me to serve on the Board for Central Virginia Horse Rescue, I didn't hesitate one second. I recognized right off the bat Cindy's commitment to horses and her desire to make a difference to those horses in need. I felt honored and privileged to do so and still do today. Volunteers are the backbone of any rescue and I help by volunteering when I can and assist in any way I can. I am just one of the many volunteers to take the time to do much stalls, ride, walk or groom the horses, doing whatever is needed. Cindy runs a well-organized rescue and is always looking for ways to better CVHR. She is one tough lady but still manges to be tender-hearted, especially when a certain mule named Rosebud sticks her head into Cindy's arms. Rosebud came to Cindy by way of an auction with a price tag of $50; thus began CHVR and Rosebud rules even today.
