Horses serve another purpose
We believe horses offer so much more than just riding lessons. Whether school, rescue, race, or retired, their calm, gentle, intuitive dispositions ground struggling readers' nervous and/or anxious energy.
When this happens, the reader is more open and receptive to the learning experience.
Thus, we view student-and-horse as a mutually beneficial partnership. Students feel comfortable reading to horses, and horses enjoy being read to. A winning combination!
