This program is committedbrto motivating children to want to read, enhancing their literacy skills, andbrdeveloping their confidence in reading. It is an amazing adventure for thebrchildren to enjoy the opportunity to read to the horses and experience thebrexhilaration and joy of spending time with these amazing non-judgmentalbrteachers.

brbr

It is important tobrteach children to read, but nothing is achieved if children know how to read,brbut don’t!

brbr

The purpose is tobrmotivate children to discover the joys of reading and learning through thebrmagic of contact with live horses.

brbr

The goal is to sparkbrthe imagination of children so they will want to read and enjoy their sense ofbrcreativity as they escape into a world of adventure.

brbrOn July 28 the academy held a “Second Touch”bractivity day, where youth were able to participate in four educationalbractivities and read to the horse. This experience is available to any homebrschool student or elementary school class, starting in the fall of 2019. Thebrcost is $25 per student.
