Field Trip to Equestrian Center
Mrs. Wilson and Mr. Loyd’s class visited Happy Hooves Therapeutic Equestrian Center in Marietta, SC. We learned what horses eat every day and even got to feed the horses. We participated in brushing and petting them. We put on helmets for safety, then rode the horses around the arena.
Eden Farms provides Therapeutic Riding and Equine Assisted Learning. These programs help individuals with emotional challenges to increase confidence. Riding a horse also helps show improvement in flexibility, balance and muscle strength.
We had a wonderful visit and hope to go back next year!
