Horse Tales Literacy Project

Justine Ameye created this great video celebrating our Region 15 in Lexington, VA this year. Not only did the Trowbridge team have great success in the ring, everyone enjoyed a fun horse show with friends, family, dogs and of course the horses we love so dearly. Thank you Justine for pulling this all together to capture such wonderful memories.

 

 

                                                      

 

Horse Tales Literacy Project

Trowbridge's Ltd. Arabian horse farm in Bridgewater partnered this spring with the elementary schools in Region 12 to provide the Horse Tales Literacy Project for the first time in Connecticut. HTLP is a non-profit organization based on the "Black Stallion" books by Walter Farley and seeks to promote literacy through inspiring children to read by connecting them with a classic book and the magic of live horses. The first grade classes from the region's three schools visited the farm twice. On their first visit, the students were given a tour of the facility, watched demonstrations, and were given a copy of their first book, "Little Black, A Pony." During their second visit to Trowbridge's, the students were given the opportunity to read to a horse. Above, first graders from the Burnham School in Bridgewater passed around horse brushes while watching a grooming demonstration by Clara D'Amico (lower left) as part of their first visit.
