Experience a brand new kind of learning while riding horses!

Horse Powered Reading® focuses on the learning process for the individual and builds upon children’s natural curiosity and determination. During sessions, students are allowed to make discoveries and experiment with knowledge firsthand. The interaction between client and horse gives the facilitator insight into what the client is experiencing inside and what patterns are working or not working for them. That interplay allows for profound learning to take place. Through this process, the horse creates an opportunity for immediate feedback and experiential learning to take place.

 

Why Horse Powered Reading?

We give children the tools they need to become successful readers. Social-emotional issues, ADHD, anxiety, depression, and other mental health concerns often get in the way of student learning. Horse Powered Reading® can break through those challenges giving students a chance to learn or reinforce reading and other academic skills in the moment.

 

How it Works!

Issues affecting learning are identified and made visible by the client, through the use of obstacles (toys and props), which symbolize stumbling blocks that get in the way of understanding. Issues getting in the way of academic and social emotional growth are addressed by our expert team in the moment. Sessions allow students a chance to reflect on what they are experiencing and provide an opportunity to create new patterns of learning in a supported environment.

 

Identify... Experience... Connect...

Horse Powered Reading® integrates social-emotional learning with academics; thus allowing students see and experience reading with their entire mind, body and emotions by creating metaphors for the skills involved in reading. Students interact with horses from the ground, while using toys and props to identify obstacles and learn five critical reading skills - phonemic awareness, decoding, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension * Session goals vary depending upon the needs of the individual or group and ages.
