PARDS Volunteer Spotlight - Julie Legare Featured

pards volunteer julieThis is Julie’s first volunteer experience and she has been loving it! She said it was very organized when she first contacted us and thought we did a great job of getting her started.

 After attending the PARDS volunteer orientation, Julie arrived on her first day of volunteering to muck stalls as she expressed she wanted to help in the barn as her comfort level and knowledge of horses was limited. Little did she know she would be helping in lessons as well! One of our volunteers couldn't make it so, when asked, Julie jumped right in as a sidewalker. Julie started volunteering at PARDS in November, 2019 and ever since her knowledge and comfort has continued to grow. Julie is now a leader in Little Pony Motricity classes every Tuesday evening.

Julie moved to Alberta in 1986 from Quebec to teach French immersion at the elementary school level. She has also taught grade seven and eight and has recently started teaching grade one. She says teaching the grade one students is a big change for her but has made her a perfect fit with our young riders. When Julie first began volunteering she was a little hesitant at first because of her lack of horse knowledge but Julie has proven to be a very quick learner and is now much more confident and really enjoys leading in her lessons. She is always very eager to learn new things and she loves it when instructors or other volunteers give her more information on the horses or what to do in certain situations in the barn and in lessons.
Julie has a fantastic relationship with the young riders she is working with and does a great job helping them brush and get their pony ready for their lesson. She loves the interaction with the riders, getting to see them have fun and getting to know each one of their personalities. She is also enjoying getting to know all the miniature ponies better, but she does say that Petunia has managed to catch her heart and is her personal favourite so far as Petunia keeps her on her toes with her sassy attitude and energetic trot. Julie is very appreciative of everything we offer to our riders and volunteers as well as everything we have taught her about horses and is very happy to be a part of the program.
We appreciate all that Julie has given to our riders and look forward to watching her grow in her knowledge and confidence even more!
