We at Acres for Life are excited to add Horse Powered Reading to our available services! As developed my Michele Pickel, PhD, Horse Powered Reading is an opportunity for students see and experience reading with their entire mind, body and emotions, by creating metaphors for the skills involved in reading. Horses become the reading material or book students need to connect with. Without finding and making some connection with the text, it is easy to drift away from or lose interest in a book. By experiencing how it feels when a book or text is too hard or too easy, students learn to choose a “just right” book. Seeing what tools are used to connect with the book (horse) and how that connection is made, allows facilitators and teachers to use clean questioning to help students discover the importance of connecting and explore better ways to do it through the metaphor.
