Reading, Riding and ‘Rithmetic: Schooled by a Horse

Reading, Riding and ‘Rithmetic: Schooled by a Horse


Liz and Mica pair up to offer this innovative program that combines having fun on the farm with mastering the “four” R’s. We use the motivating factor of the horse plus your child’s special interests to engage him or her in the learning process. Real-life scenarios help learners grasp difficult material and the physical movement keeps them alert and engaged.

Ideal for homeschoolers who would like a little support in particular areas and for children with sensory or attentional issues who would benefit from the movement and contact with the horse.

  • The initial 90-minute meeting is with Mica, a licensed therapist, and Liz, a registered therapeutic riding instructor.
  • Liz assesses the student’s horsemanship skills while Mica meets with the caregivers to discuss challenges and goals.
  • Mica then consults regularly with families to tailor engaging lesson plans that include riding skill acquisition and academics.
  • Liz delivers fun, active riding lessons that engage the mind and the senses.

Investment: $350 for each block of 5 lessons–includes five 90-minute lessons with Liz, an initial 90-minute consultation with Mica, and ongoing communication to track progress. Or $85 for individual lessons. (Save $75 when you pay for 5 lessons at a time.)

Daytime, evening, and weekend availability. Participants are welcome to start with this package and then to move into regular riding lessons at anytime (or vice versa).
