We took our second field trip of the school year to a local horse farm. They have several horses that they take to shows on the weekends, as well as offering riding classes and field trips for schools and homeschool groups. We had a great turnout with children of all ages!
We learned the anatomy of a horse, how to brush and groom them, and even how they show when they’re happy or irritated. We learned about trotting, cantering, and galloping. The kids were able to brush, pet, and feed a lot of the horses. We wrapped up the field trip with a quick riding lesson, which was a fan favorite in our house for sure!
