Horse Powered Reading

Developed by Michele Pickel, Horse Powered Reading (HPR) is an Individual Reading Support Programme where learners are assisted in developing their reading skills in an experiential learning environment.

Horses are an intricate part of the programme, stimulating self-efficacy, motivation and persistence. Sessions are facilitated by an EAGALA Equine Specialist and a Reading Therapist or Remedial Specialist.

A 10-week programme will be tailor-made according to the learner’s age and school level, and will address the learner’s specific stumbling blocks.
