My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for M A R E Riding Center, Bakersfield, CA, USA
MARE is a wonderful place to volunteer! I have been volunteering off and on for about 2 years.
The volunteer coordinator trains incoming volunteers with integrity and precision! It's all about safety! Safe horse handling, safe client to volunteer interactions and the entire staff is welcoming and cheerful!
What a great place to learn everything about horses. There are those like me who dreamed of having horses when we were young, and did just about any chore for other folks in order to smooth a mane and kiss a velvet nose. The barn is the hub of activity, and the special kids and adults who come to ride are the reason MARE is an anchor non- profit in my community.
It is an amazing thing to watch the riders settle into a saddle on a trusted horse. To watch a child's confidence grow week by week is no less than a small miracle.
I love this place.....it's grows on ya!
