Local literacy program helps children develop love of reading with help of Arabian horses

Ten students visitedbrTaylor Ranch Riding Academy for their “first touch” of an Arabian Horse and tobrget their Black Stallion books and poster on June 29.


The youth arebrencouraged to go home and practice reading to the Arabian Horse Poster inbrpreparation of the Activity day. The Arabian Horse Reading Literacy Project isbran innovative, experiential learning program—Equine Assisted Learning.


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.


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


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


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.
