Who Is This Program For?

Our non-riding Life Skills, STEAM lessons, and Literacy program is a perfect fit for private schools in the surrounding Northern Virginia area.  We work with your Kindergarten - 8th grade teachers to customize the one day per week-six week program. We help your teachers reach many objectives in Math, Science, Literacy, and Life Skills-all with our horses as the teachers!

Life Skills

Our Equine Assisted Learning utilizes horses and their unique communication style to reinforce life skills such as: communication, confidence, listening skills, collaboration, empathy, problem solving, adaptability, and trust. Each weekly lesson focuses on one objective and builds on the previous lessons creating a framework of life skills for each student.

STEAM

Our Science-Technology-Engineering-Art-Math lessons are conducted with our horses.  Each lesson is designed to reinforce lessons and objectives covered in the classroom. Our horses make learning come alive!

Literacy

Each of our weekly lessons has a literacy component. We focus on the objective for the day, the "ah-ha" moment and peer collaboration to reinforce the learning.
