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.
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.
Our facilitators are trained to see what tools (toys and props) the child uses to choose and connect with their book (horse) and how that connection is made.
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.
Horses can help clients learn to build connections~
