Back to School – Self-Organizing

July 31, 2023 - August 2, 2023


Did you know that spending time with horses isn’t always about “doing” but it is also about learning to be present and staying focused which translates into developing “self-organizing” skills?  The ability to “self-organize” is necessary to achieve goals, without constant reminders.

Each student will be tasked with teaming with one horse to learn horse markings, breeds, color and its unique characteristics. Students will learn essential skills to be responsible to organize their time each day in order to complete each “necessary” task working toward the final goal. (Distractions will be included.) On the final day, students will show-case their “self-organizing” skills by presenting a detailed report describing their horse to their teammates.
