Review for Mitchell Farm Equine Retirement Inc, Salem, CT, USA
Mitchell Farm Equine Retirement provides a meaningful, dignified and naturally beautiful environment for the horses to live healthy and full lives as they retire. Great care is taken to meet the horses' individual needs and enhance their experience as they become social with other retirees. Volunteering at Mitchell Farm is the highlight of my busy week.
Considerable attention is taken to train volunteers especially those of us who have little horse knowledge. Volunteers are a valuable resource on the farm, a lot of time is dedicated to teach the fundamentals of being a part of barn care, horse care and the different aspects of what it takes to care and provide for the horses. Learning about the horses and how to care for them through "hands on experience" is amazing and speaks to the core of Mitchell Farm's dedication.
Mitchell Farm is also a place where people gather to be part of something meaningful, give back to the environment and even learn about themselves. I forgot to mention about all the "ah ha" moments, the laughter, the attachment and the feeling of awe seeing the horses run, graze , roll in the snow and call out to each other. I often wonder who is the lucky one here. I believe I am. Flo M.
