Horse Powered Learning is a series of unmounted sessions with horses, focusing on reading skills including phonemic awareness, decoding, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension. Sessions will be small groups led by certified facilitators of the Horse Powered Reading® curriculum.
Horse Powered Reading® helps students
- Increase confidence
- Promote self-efficacy
- Foster connections
- Learn valuable reading skills
- Carry new skills into the regular classroom
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. No prior horse experience is necessary.
Issues getting in the way of academic and social emotional growth are addressed by our expert team in the moment. This allows students a chance to reflect on what they are experiencing and provides an opportunity to create new patterns of learning in a supported environment.
