Pony Tales Session

The Pony Tales Literacy Reading Program is an ancillary component of the Two Hearts Horsemanship program in which elementary age children can spend up to 30 minutes per session reading to our miniature horses as a way to help improve literacy and focus.  This program was created to address satellite issues such as Dyslexia, ADD, ADHD and more.  Studies have shown that reading to an animal can improve growth in the following areas:

  • Builds excitement around reading

  • Increases relaxation

  • Creates positive motivation

  • Is less intimidating than peers

  • Builds self-esteem and confidence

  • Allows each child to proceed at their own pace

  • Improvement of social skills and communication

  • Joy of animal interaction
