2018 CHP Volunteers of the Year           

volunteer year 2018 Denise small                                                                  2018 Volunteer of the Year: Denise Jones

2018 Volunteer of the Year: Denise Jones
Denise comes to the Carolina Horse Park having groomed for a few years, including at the USET Gladstone, NJ. She had the privilege of attending the Mexico Olympics taking care of the wonderful Plain Sailing (riden by Mike Plumb). Having trained and shown hunters in Wi, before starting her own tack repair business which she ran for 20 yrs., she switched gears by beginning dog obedience training and showing. She moved to a warmer climate and worked as a vet tech for small animal hospitals. Denise currently lives with her two retired obedience dogs, works part time as vet tech and volunteers for several organizations.

2018 Competitor Volunteer of the Year: Cristina Moore
Like so many other middle-aged women who ride, Christina was a horse crazy kid whose parents responded with a flat no whenever she asked for my own horse. She never had any kind of formal training when young. Cristina lost interest as a teen and young woman and saw the light again while living in the Middle East, where she originally trained as a show jumper. It was the equestrian community in this area that drew her to take a teaching job with Moore County Schools, which is also the reason why it's so hard for her to pursue this sport: teacher's paycheck plus expensive interests equals constant struggle to make it work. Fortunately, she's been lucky to meet with many other riders and trainers here who are willing to help her ride in a small way. She now has a young OTTB prospect that, if all the stars align, she'll be bringing to the horse park for shows in the fairly near future. Cristina has volunteered, off and on, at the CHP since 2006 and it is her dream to be the one thanking the volunteers one day, although she says that being a volunteer has given back to her in multiple ways, and believes all competitors should volunteer whenever they can.
