2021 Field Day Dates May 5th – 7th
The Right Path is thrilled to continue our partnership with the Walter Farley Foundation to support literacy in low income (Title I) schools through our Horse Tales Literacy Project. Together, we provide field days and two books for 1st-grade students.
In many cases, this is our students’ first opportunity to obtain their very own book. We provide each student with 2 brand new books through this program!
Early in the spring semester, we take horses to the schools to hand out the first book. The shocked faces of students seeing a horse INSIDE their classroom are priceless!
While learning to read their first book and completing the corresponding curriculum, the students look forward to our Field Day events in late spring when over 300 students come out to the ranch for a day of learning and fun-filled activities!
Browsing 15 stations from painting and grooming horses, to stick horse and barrel racing, to learning about horse behavior and measurements, the field days are an educational and memorable experience for the students.
The BIG event is when they get to read their book to a horse and receive their second book! It is incredible to witness shy students suddenly feel the freedom to read aloud to their horse.
