The New Horsemanship Donor Relations Coordinator

Warm Beach Camp is excited to announce Mary-Grace Wallace as the first Horsemanship Donor Relations Coordinator!

Mary-Grace was born and raised in Sedro Woolley, Washington. She attended Central Washington University, has a background in Genealogy, a Veterinary Technician degree, and is currently taking online equine classes to expand her expertise within the equine field.

Mary-Grace has diverse work experience, including being a Veterinary Technician, a contractor for the Washington State Treasurer’s office for fifteen years, worked as a fundraising consultant for local and national organizations where she received crucial 501 c3 nonprofit training, and most recently worked for a small genealogy business, “Family Tree Nuts.”

By the divine orchestration of blending her skills, passions, and calling, Mary-Grace has been led to Warm Beach Camp. However, this is not where her journey with Camp began.

At ten years old, Mary-Grace attended summer camp at Warm Beach Camp with her church. She first interacted with horses during a vaulting activity down at the Barn, instantly fell in love, and her lifelong passion began. During the weeklong stay, Mary-Grace learned the concept of having a personal relationship with Jesus and found it fascinating that you could converse with God.

Warm Beach Camp has been pivotal in her personal and spiritual development. So, when her youngest daughter Khloe was interested in participating in Pony Club and discovered that Horsemanship offered the program, Mary-Grace knew it was the right place for her daughter to be. Khloe has been a Pony Clubber for four years, and Mary-Grace has routinely volunteered at the Barn as part of the curriculum. She discovered the care and love that the staff have for one another and the horses and yearned to get further involved.

Since starting at Warm Beach, Mary-Grace has seen how God is actively calling the right people to serve at Camp. She said, “I can see His design in bringing everyone together. Each person has a different personality and skillset perfectly catered to their role. You cannot miss the intricate details of God here. It’s everywhere you look.”

Mary-Grace is the mother of four children: Hunter (23), Christian (23), Kaileigh (16), and Khloe (13). She enjoys traveling, hiking, and having movie and game nights with her two daughters, and she loves cheering on Kaileigh at her softball and volleyball games.

Welcome to the Warm Beach Camp team, Mary-Grace! We are so glad you are here!

God Speaks through Rosie

I have recently been given the opportunity to work with Rosie, one of our newer horses that we are bringing along in training here at the Warm Beach Horsemanship barn. I am always excited to get to know a new horse and their personality. However, it didn’t take long to realize this sweet mare harbored a lot of anxiety and worry. I tried to coax her into calmness with gentleness and patience, but she still didn’t fully trust me. When ...
