The Good Vibes Family
The Bahlman-Mascitelli household is a chaotic one, but a home full of love.
We purchased Good Vibes Family Farm with a dream. We plan to expand our rescue and fostering (Baling Twine and Hope) to one day include a community garden and educational center. We would love to educate youth on agriculture and the versatility of the American Mustang and the Off the Track Standardbred (OTSB).
Founders and Board Members
Rachel Mascitelli, MPA
Rachel has been around horses since she was 8 years old. She started mucking stalls and doing pony rides in exchange for riding lessons. Knowing that she wanted to do something to give back to her community and with horses, she earned her undergraduate degree in Psychology with a minor in Therapeutic Horsemanship from The University of Connecticut, and followed with a Master's in Public Administration and Nonprofit Management from UConn.
Since graduating, she has continued nonprofit work, and volunteering with various therapeutic riding centers in Connecticut and earning her EAGALA certification in 2017. Baling Twine and Hope is her brainchild and dream come true.
