Horse-Powered Reading Program Spring/Summer 2017-2018

Anam Cara Stables, Inc. is offering an exciting summer program for children ages 6-12: Horse-Powered Reading. The program partners horses with students to experience reading with their entire minds and bodies. Using metaphors for reading skills paired with horse-powered obstacles, students build motivation to read and grow their self-confidence in reading abilities.

The ultimate goal of the program is to help students at all levels become more intrinsically motivated learners. The program was developed by Michele Pickel, PhD and utilizes internationally recognized EAGALA Model Equine Assisted Learning (EAL.) Students are supervised by an EAGALA certified team including an Equine Specialist. There is no riding involved.

The program is offered at stables in Galena township on Wednesdays, July 12 to August 2 from 6-8 pm. To RSVP, get pricing information and location, contact Sandy, 219-608-0093. Read more at LaPorteCountyLife.com
