Perry’s Margeaux Robinson shines on and off the field

Perry junior Margeaux Robinson is an athlete coming into her own on the softball field. But, Robinson isn’t just an athlete.

She’s also a committed volunteer at Fieldstone Farm, which according to its website, engages the therapeutic power of horses to discover and nurture the special abilities of individuals, families, and communities.

“I have been riding horses all my life and they are a huge part of me,” Robinson said. “I really enjoy helping others, so once this opportunity came up I was very excited to be a part of this program.”

Robinson began volunteering at the farm in November and she spends every Monday there completing a variety of different tasks.

“Typically, I will help them groom the horses and walk them around the arena,” she said. “I have participated in a riding class where I set up the course. I also help and show them how to clean tack along with creating drawings for staff and our horses.”

As a volunteer, Robinson doesn’t get paid for her efforts but she has been rewarded in a much more valuable way.

“I’ve learned that I am a very fortunate person,” she said. “I have always liked helping others. I also believe that it is important to help out in our community. This opportunity gave me the chance to combine my joy of helping others with my love for horses. This is a new experience for me and I am enjoying very much.”
