I started volunteering at Horse Haven riding academy at the beginning of 2013 in order to learn how to care for horses and so that I could spent more time with horses as they are a passion of mine. Michelle helped me improve my riding techniques, taught me how to properly care for horses so that in the future I will be able to own a horse. I also gained life skills such as initiative, confidence and independence. My role as a volunteer included exercising the horses, assisting in lessons with students, grooming horses, cleaning stables and paddocks, feeding the horses, leading students on treks, and much more. The few years I did work alongside Michelle, I not only gained skills which enabled me to easily obtain a part time job, and leave New Zealand to study in Canada for 5 months, I created friendships with others and had a lot of fun!
