Stories in

the Stable

What better way to encourage your child to enjoy reading than by having them read to a horse!

Why read to horses? Horses provide kids with a nonjudgmental environment so they can just sit back and enjoy reading out loud to them. Children then associate a positive experience they have reading to our horses, which reinforces that reading can be a fun and interactive experience. Talking to our horses about what they are reading also enhances their social skills.

Bring your own book, or borrow one of ours.

Imagination

Giving a child the chance to step outside of the classroom setting and into a barn filled with horses creates a new and exciting learning space, stimulating the imagination.

Motivation

Recognizing that the horses enjoying being read to creates an enthusiasm in the child and encourages them to want to read more, building a strong foundation for more motivation.

Confidence

Many children avoid reading because they're afraid of making mistakes. Horses  provide the child with a judgement free and safe space to read with confidence.
