About Your Volunteer Experience

An introduction to you volunteer experience from Chanera Peck
ThoroughbredEd is a rescue and solution-oriented organization that teaches important life skills to its volunteers. There is a history of pre-vet students volunteering for the organization. All of them had nothing but good things to say about it, but so I started volunteering with a friend that was their volunteer director to learn how to work with horses. Along with teaching basic husbandry and handling, ThoroughbredEd also teaches advocacy skills to help shape the next generation of animal welfare leaders in veterinary medicine. Therefore, I’ve learned much more than how to work with animals and wanted to offer an inside look for people who have never heard of or been to ThoroughbredEd. Thus, I decided to write about my experience with the organization and why ThoroughbredEd is such a great place to volunteer.
