Our Read to Ride Program was lots of fun this summer! Children aged 6 – 10 who read books over the summer were able to come out and learn about and ride a horse. The kids had lots of fun and so did the volunteers! This program was offered during the month of July and time slots filled quickly.
The kids were excited but apprehensive when they arrived but after brushing, saddling and then riding a horse they had gained confidence and pride in their accomplishment. We plan to extend this program to include children up to 12 years old next summer so watch the web site for announcements in the spring. Those who want to attend more than once can do that for a $20 donation to Tbar.
As another incentive to read we will have a field trip come out from Brenham ISD for all the students at Alton Elementary who read and kept track of the books they read over the summer.
We also have plans for horsemanship classes in the spring so keep watch for updates and announcements on that too.
- TBAR operates solely on donations and grants. Your generous donation goes directly to the vet care, rehabilitation, and feeding of our rescued animals. Thank you for helping us to save more lives!
