    Hi, my name is Angie Curtis.  I started volunteering at M.A.R.E. at age 13.  I fell in love with the program and after a year of volunteering on Saturdays I started to come out during the week after school to help with lessons.   Then, I took care of the barn on Sundays; I spent a majority of my time here at the barn.  When I turned 18 I became a certified riding instructor and taught for a little over a year, before moving on to try some new things in life.  I have two beautiful children Blake and Amelia; both love horses.  My husband, Justin, is excited about helping out at M.A.R.E., whenever he is able.  I have experience in starting  2 years olds under saddle, working with problem horses, and riding just about every style there is.  Horses have always been my passion, even though I was not brought up with horses in my family.  I now own one beautiful quarter horse mare, who gave birth to a colt in April 2017.  I have always tried to help people in whatever situation I have been in.  Coming back to M.A.R.E. as the Program Director was the perfect time in my life to combine horses and helping others.  I look forward to getting up every day and being part of such a wonderful team of people and horses.  I am excited for our future out here and can’t wait to see how we can grow this organization and help as many people possible in our community.

  • DebbyKate: Volunteer Coordinator

    I had the pleasure of knowing Diane as she was working with others as they began M.A.R.E.  I was not able to get involved at that time; my life took a path where I worked with a different set of animals.  Later, I was able to become involved as a supporter and volunteer.  It feels good, on the body and mind, to come work around the horses -whether it is hot or cold, wet or windy!  Now, as the volunteer coordinator, I have the opportunity to train others about what M.A.R.E. does and how their efforts benefit our horses and riders.  It is great to see volunteers eager to come and help because they understand how they are making a difference; they receive as much as they are give!  I am blessed to be here.
