Cyndee Olauson was initially drawn to Hold Your Horses (HYH) through her lifelong love of horses. She first learned to ride bareback while growing up on a Nebraska farm, and has felt a connection to these amazing creatures ever since. After hearing about HYH’s mission through a friend, Cyndee began volunteering with the organization in 2017. She spent some time in the barn cleaning out stalls, and in 2018 was elected to the Board as Secretary, where she could also contribute her organizational skills and experience from a long career in administrative Dietetics.
Cyndee believes in the healing properties of both horses and outdoor spaces. Horses are in tune with people in a special way and have a way of connecting with each person. She is inspired by the HYH mission and therapeutic goals, as well as Janet Weisberg’s leadership and
vision, and is proud to serve the organization.
