HomeSchool Horsemanship classes combine a hands-on learning experience at its best with something children love -HORSES! Do you have a horse-crazy child (or children)? Are you interested in helping them learn more about horses in a safe environment? Whether their horsemanship skills are are just beginning or are already advanced, your child will benefit from the rich educational opportunities presented in these classes. This unique curriculum was developed by Janet Waring, a 16-year veteran home school teacher and horse owner, and Kathy Taylor, an experienced horsewoman, riding instructor, and owner of Taylor Made Stables in Montgomery County, where classes are held.
These classes are designed to foster your child’s love of horses while giving them an understanding of the responsibility of horse ownership and care. Click here or on the classes tab for more information.
HORSES: Good for the Inside and Outside of Kids! A 2006 research study from the American Youth Horse Council, co-sponsored by Pennsylvania State University, found a significant positive relationship between total horsemanship skill development and life skills development. Horse-involved youngsters gained advantages in decision making, communication, goal setting, problem solving and critical thinking skills. See ayhc.com for more information on this study.
