Pat Gibson (Volunteer Coordinator), Vicki Reynolds 2013 Volunteer of the Year
. . . I saw that you were looking for stories about long-time volunteers, let me tell you about a very important volunteer from the Carolina Horse Park…
Pat Gibson - Pat is the Volunteer Coordinator for all the recognized HTs (4 each year), unrecognized Starter HTs (6 each year) and Pipe Openers CT (2 each year). She recruits all the volunteers, makes sure they get the jobs they want, work with their “conflicts”, and even fills in for slots that she cannot get filled. Without her, CHP would not be able to run these events, because – as you know - these events don’t happen without volunteers.
Earlier this month CHP had a Starter HT where they offered BN-T HT (on the same courses as their earlier recognized HT), but they added Maiden and Green as Grass divisions. The story I have is about a volunteer who helped with these lower divisions.
Vicki Reynolds was the Jump Judge at the large water jump. With the lower divisions, there were several horses who did not want to go through the water. She allowed the riders to try to get them through the water until they were eliminated due to refusals. Instead of telling them to leave the jump, she got up and helped the riders get their horses through the water. This extra effort on her part made the unexpected end to a cross country ride a very happy experience for these competitors who are new to Eventing.
