I have been a volunteer for approximately 1 year with Hidden Acres Rescue for Thoroughbreds (HART). This organization is totally dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of neglected and former race horses and does a great job with helping these wonderful animals. But equally important is the important role this organization plays in the lives of the volunteers, students and community. So much positive energy coming from loving, supportive, hard working people. We all believe it is a huge gift to have the opportunity to belong to Team HART!
HART has given me and so many people an opportunity we never had before -- a chance to help with the care of these beautiful horses, to get to know them, and to love them as if they are our own. The wonderful people at HART have been willing to help me learn and to be my best self. On top of that, we are helping these majestic animals to have a second chance at life, to heal, to grow and to find the forever home they deserve. We of Team HART are honored to feel the joy and peace of mind that comes to us in this magical place of horses and humans.
I began volunteering at HART in the summer of 2014 and instantly fell in love, not only because I had a passion for horses but I also enjoyed every moment I was there with the other volunteers. I made some great friends and had some good laughs! HART soon became a part of my family. Never had one bad experience while I was a part of the team :)
One of the best decisions I have ever made was to start volunteering at HART. This team of amazing volunteers are like my other family. Team HART and our horses have changed my life and I will always be thankful for each and every one of them.
