Have you ever heard of equine facilitated learning? I have had the amazing opportunity to be able to volunteer with a program called the Arabian Literacy Reading Project and it has been incredible to see the impact horses have had on children. When I found my RIGHT barn, I discovered that my current trainer and his wife started a program called the Arabian Literacy Reading Project. Basically, the program aims to help children learn and love to read through horses. They feel that horses help children learn to read because they are non-judgmental and really help children to relax. The program aims to motivate children to read through quality books and horses.
