My time was spent uploading MBC Stables' financial info. into a Quickbooks computer accounting program, creating descriptive profiles on each horse for future marketing purposes, and assisting in daily stable chores.
Attending the horse auction at the Meadowlands in East Rutherford, N.J. showed me how much money is involved in the racehorse industry as well as how to successfully market a horse.
I completed physical labor around the park office and on the trails, assisted in maintaining a clean volunteer living area, and shared information with visiting tourists.
This Field Period provided many "firsts" for me. I was able to learn about life in a completely new environment, and it was my first time on a plane and being out of country. I met other volunteers from all over, and was able to see wildlife that I've only seen in zoos prior to this experience.
