Reading With Rescues
Reading with Rescues (RWR) General description and guidelines:
A program for K-8th grade students to come to the rescue and read to a horse, donkey or mule, supervised, but unassisted, for approximately 20-25 minutes. Students are welcome to bring their own reading material or borrow some from the donated books.
The program will take place on the second and fourth Monday of the month. There will be one session per night from 6:30-7:30. Sign-up will be by RSVP and limited to 20 students per session.
After reading, students will have a “petting experience” where they will pet an equine and get to ask a handler horse questions.
All parents/guardians and students will be required to watch a safety video and sign a Release waiver. An adult will be required to stay on the property while the student is reading. Ample parking and comfortable accommodations are available.
A $5 donation per student is appreciated but not required.
