Review for Sarasota Manatee Association For Riding Therapy Inc, Bradenton, FL, USA
My Pre-K class had the honor to participate in a real-world experience in spring of 2018 at SMART Farm in Bradenton, FL The children had the most amazing hands-on approach to learning with beautiful horses and volunteers that represented this outstanding organization. The four and five year’s olds groomed and brushed these brilliant horses and even cleaned the mud from their horseshoes. We toured the grounds and walked in the stables as we viewed and learned each horses name. Instantly the children felt connected and comfortable with their surroundings.
With assistance, each child walked along the side of a horse and held onto the reins as they led the horse through an obstacle course. Our class brought the horses fresh carrots to enjoy. We held the large tin bowls filled with carrots as the horses happily crunched with their big strong teeth. I think our new four legged friends were even smiling at us while they quickly finished their treat.
For days and even weeks the children relived their experience they had at SMART Farm. Our class created a memory photo book and who ever came to visit they were invited to sit down and hear all about our field trip to SMART Farm.
Thank you for positively influencing our young minds in Pre-Kindergarten at Out-0f-Door Academy.
