Review for Equine Rescue of Aiken, Aiken, SC, USA
I originally visited the Equine Rescue of Aiken as a new comer to town who was very lost in her life. Having always been a lover of animals it was nothing short of magical for me to be able to go somewhere every day to find peace among the horses. It's a remarkable place! Every horse has a story to touch your heart. Jim gave me the opportunity to start volunteering and doing odd jobs around the farm. I would look for any reason to spend my time there. The views alone would make you want to pitch a tent right on the hill. Jim and his wife Debbie quickly became very important role models in my life. They trusted me to help wherever I could. I learned so much about horses and I even got to assist with training to get them ready for adoption. That was life changing for me! It gave me such happiness and purpose in my life. I knew then that I wanted to go into the field of veterinary medicine (I am now a certified Veterinary Technician working towards Veterinary Medical School). Jim and Debbie have opened up so many doors for new and incredible opportunities in my life. I will always be grateful for my experiences and friendships that came from the rescue. There isn't anything I wouldn't do for them.
