Unbridle the Joy of Reading to Rescued Horses at Unbridled

About this event

Read To The Rescues is a fun and engaging opportunity for learners of all ages to improve reading skills alongside of our horses as active listeners. Readers may bring their own books or select books from the vast collection of horse stories in our Secret Forest Memorial Library.

When young people read to a horse, the horse leans in to listen, gleans a kind eye, and offers an expression that beckons the reader for more. Over the course of a reading session, we have observed the shyest reader who can barely utter a whisper, become an animated storyteller in the presence of our horses.

"In the most vulnerable moments of reading, horses are friends who are accepting, genuine, and empathetic." ~Susan Kayne, CHES

In support of NYS Libraries Summer Reading theme Oceans of Possibilities, Unbridled will feature a special collection or reading material dedicated to SeaHorses!

It is our goal through Read To The Rescues to promote literacy, inspire academics and a love of literature, and increase engagement with equine from an entry point of compassionate care and kindness towards how the horse is experiencing his or her own life.

READ TO THE RESCUES IS FREE TO PARTICIPATE IN, HOWEVER, SEATS MUST BE RESERVED IN ADVANCE
