“At Pal-O-Mine Equestrian, we have built a foundation that embraces and promotes service, consistency, communication and safety,” says Lisa A. Gatti. “The organization strives to instill in the staff and volunteers a full and zealous understanding of our mission and the culture that supports it.” In addition, Pal-O-Mine believes in the importance of continuing education, which can take the form of conferences, coursework or visits to other facilities. One major aspect of Pal-O-Mine’s culture is the annual holiday celebration. Starting in the fall, Gatti provides clues to employees about the program the organization has planned, to keep them guessing and maintain a fun atmosphere. “The event usually includes a theatrical production and takes advantage of several of the many cultural aspects of the New York metropolitan area,” she says.
“The culture embraced within Pal-O-Mine Equestrian will endure, as those who serve it live outside what is within.”
